Debbie Little knows how to calm, warm, and provide a quick pick-me-up to her clients. But she's not a therapist, or a bartender. She's a licensed skincare and body-wrapping specialist with more than 20 years of experience soothing her clients' epidermal woes. Her specialty facials—all customized to meet personal needs—range from classic European treatments with herbal-warmed towels to pumpkin-infused sessions for those who celebrate October year-round. In addition to facials, she also specializes in detoxifying, hydrating, and skin-tightening body wraps.
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.
At Face & BodyWorks, the name says it all: services target the face and body. This includes a large variety of facials, peels, and microdermabrasions to beautify the skin, plus a wide range of massage modalities to mitigate muscular stress. Treatments such as the Insanely Clear facial help get rid of acne, and microdermabrasion boosts collagen. Personalized massage therapy helps clients eliminate tension with organic oils and creams.
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.
Dr. Nader Shehata and his team at Derma Laser Center match clients' exteriors to their body goals through a slate of comprehensive cosmetic procedures. Noninvasive therapies include massage and laser hair removal, which leaves skin looking smoother and more elegant than a latex wedding dress. Alternatively, Shehata performs minimally invasive procedures ranging from dermal fillers to Smartlipo laser fat reduction.
At Stella Stratta Esthetics International, aesthetician and owner Stella Stratta works to correct virtually all skin concerns, from wrinkles and dark spots to unwanted hair and cellulite. To do so, she uses professional Exel skincare spa products culled from Argentina’s Patagonia region, a remote area unspoiled by the modern world’s ubiquitous chemicals and rival jetpack gangs.
In addition to fielding skin concerns, she also beautifies exteriors with clothing, jewelry, and accessories from her boutique. It stocks belts, shawls, and woven leather wallets—each crafted from Argentine designers.
