DLK Day Spa's licensed aestheticians back their services with the test of time: They've pampered some of the same customers for more than 30 years. During the last few decades, they have refined and updated their skills, beautifying and pampering their clients with a range of techniques. They sooth skin and muscles with a combination of facials, photofacial treatments, and massages, and banish unwanted hair with waxing and electrolysis. They recently upgraded their arsenal of services to include lasers, which can remove hair or vaporize towns, if left in the wrong hands.
The beauty professionals at Perfect Shape Threading Salon clear away unwanted hair and enhance skin with facials and henna design. During threading sessions, a beautician lassos strands of hair with a cotton thread before twisting the root and hogtying the separated strand down. Using the waxing method, the beautician removes body hair by pulling a thin coat of wax off the skin using a cloth strip, which grips hairs and carries them off by the root. Facial services remove dirt and oil from pores and moisturize visages, and henna tattoos decorate bodies with intricate patterns that last for weeks or until you change skins.
It’s been more than ten years since the staff at Day Spa Gata saw the first glowing, relaxed client walk out their door, and it has since become a regular sight. That’s because the day spa offers an expansive variety of services meant to relax, beautify, and renew each guest who enters their tranquil spa, replete with complimentary consultations. In the massage area, bodies bask in modalities such as aromatherapy, deep tissue, and Russian sport massage, which tends to muscles before or after a tough workout or skirmish with the Ottoman Empire. Body scrubs buff away dead skin cells and stimulate circulation, while body wraps nourish skin with decadent formulas made from chocolate, dead sea mud, algae, or volcanic ash. In skincare rooms, specialists refine complexions with eight traditional facials and cutting-edge treatments that incorporate ultrasound, glycolic acids, or microdermabrasion crystals to reveal more youthful skin.
At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments. Together, they alleviate skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Alternatively, they beautify skin with lasers, tightening sagging areas or removing unwanted hair. Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
The Thai massage and facial treatments at Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa have received glowing praise from New York magazine and the New York Times, respectively, with the latter publication calling one of the salon's aestheticians “one of Hollywood’s best-kept secrets.” A-list celebrities, including Penélope Cruz and Christy Turlington, visit to receive exfoliating treatments and in-depth facials with high-end products from Shiseido, qiora, and La Mer. Founder Paul Labrecque treats his male and female clientele as friends and personally trains his staff in customer service and hand-to-hand combat against split ends. In addition to soothing skin during facials and microdermabrasion treatments, staffers massage muscles in eight different modalities. Their Eastern-inspired healing treatments, such as reiki and rolfing, honor the connection between the mind and body, and the salon and spa’s full list of services puts finishing touches on exteriors with haircare, makeup, and waxing, among other treatments. Each location hosts a separate, private men's salon that's part barbershop, part gentleman's club, and part knitting circle.
