The aestheticians at Fresh Faces bolster their facials with products from Skin Fitness Therapy, professional-grade potions that meld natural ingredients with scientific formulas. This is part of the progressive approach they take regarding skincare treatments, which are customized to address each individual’s particular skincare needs. Along with facials, the staff performs microdermabrasion and skin-exfoliation treatments to eliminate dull, lifeless skin cells on the face. Downy robes and complimentary beverages help clients relax and wind down during their treatment.
“My practice is really centered on the individual,” Dr. Amaryllis Pascual told NBC 6 News about her self-named clinic, Pascual MD Med Spa. “What I like to do is set up an initial consultation where I meet with the patient and we go over what their desired results are. I then take a look at their lifestyle and the person as a whole, and we customize a treatment plan that’s going to fit that individual.”
Dr. Pascual and three other on-staff doctors—Dr. Vijay Sharma, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, and Dr. Jorge Gaviria—follow this regimen for each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.
In Greek mythology, the goddess of remedy and healing is Panacea, a fitting name for this spa, where the staff specializes in relaxing and rejuvenating services to help each client feel like a goddess or, at the very least, a relaxed human with really soft skin. Along with nail services, waxing, and skin-beautifying treatments including botanical facial peels and sea-salt exfoliations, they tame tension with massages and reflexology. Upping the pampering quotient, wellness packages merge several services for up to four hours of indulgence for men, women, and couples.
Licensed aesthetician Rose Levenda draws upon more than 30 years of combined local and overseas experience to enhance appearances and help clients stay abreast of current cosmetic trends. Focused on skin, she attacks uneven complexions and blemishes from all angles with a slew of anti-aging treatments, specialized peels, and deep-reaching exfoliation measures, including microdermabrasion. For bodies that can’t seem to shrink after exercise, dieting, and sleeping in sardine cans, nonsurgical liposuction and body contouring offer less invasive alternatives to traditional medical procedures.
Dr. Moises Salama will personally take care of each client, starting with a pretreatment consultation regarding the area the patient would like to free from the tyranny of wrinkles. Botox is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments, used to counteract expression lines formed from years of squinting, laughing, or worrying about the mole men who maintain the sewers. The simple, in-office procedure involves a few tiny injections of a purified protein, which reduces the activity of muscles that cause deep lines to form over time. Unlike the results garnered from wishful thinking, Botox results typically last three to six months.
