Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
Spa Ujala’s aestheticians strive to reinvent clients' appearances through custom combinations of organic or botanically derived products. During the facial treatments, they can slather cheekbones with antioxidant-filled seaweed, organic mud masks, or balms with enough vitamin C to get through the next orange strike. The spa's body wraps also seek to leave skin soft and vibrant by first nourishing it in a bath of coconut, mung bean, and lavender. For an even more tactile experience, the massage therapists unravel knots near the surface of muscles by using gentle, flowing Swedish strokes. They also utilize deep-tissue techniques or hot stones to delve a bit further into the musculature.
Light Tuscan stonework surrounds the entrance of Dolce Med Spa & Boutique, welcoming guests to this 5,000-square-foot oasis of pampering. Owner Tracey Lively opened this luxurious escape just last year and offers a menu of medical-spa and day-spa services for men and women alike because, as she noted in an article in the Patriot Ledger, many spas in the region weren't meeting the beautification needs of both genders. Harvard-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio and the medical aestheticians on staff tend to chemical peels and assorted laser treatments, and a troop of skin experts and body therapists slathers bodies with Glysomed professional facial products, soothing massage oils, and Cinnabon frosting.
The Face Place’s client-centered skincare specialists prettify earthly edifices with surface-sprucing services inside a cozy cabana of chassis restoration. A classic facial refurbishes frontispieces weathered from stress, age, or radioactive cheese fondue with essential oils. Meanwhile, a 60-minute pedicure pampers human paws with a sugar-butter scrub, a calf-cooling leg-and-foot massage, and a sole-swaddling hot-towel wrap that feels akin to donning a pair of fluffy, fresh-from-the-dryer croissants.
With its red-brick façade and white-trimmed windows and doors, Trendies Salon & Day Spa could easily be mistaken for a cozy family home. Inside, despite the hairstyling stations and private spa rooms, the familial atmosphere persists; owner Kristin Ridge and her staff, after all, are like one big happy family. The team greets every client with a smile before embarking on a haircut or color service such as highlights or ombre. In the spa, aestheticians pamper skin with custom facials and teen-specific treatments geared toward battling acne and erasing forehead graffiti. Nails receive TLC at Trendies too, thanks to soothing manicures and pedicures and skin-softening paraffin dips.
