As part of the Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York, the staff at SkinSmart Aesthetics helps boost complexions with a variety of skincare services. Botox and injectable fillers minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and chemical peels and laser skin-resurfacing treatments reveal fresh, younger-looking skin. Laser skin and vein treatments are also available for skin beautifying.
Though she's an aspiring Real Housewife, Barbara Ellsworth is no stay-at-home mom. The cosmetic- and plastic-surgical nurse of 13 years oversees Larchmont Laser Medical Spa’s staff of medical aestheticians. The tranquil, robin's-egg-blue walls of her facility offer a suitably upscale backdrop for the slate of med-spa and beauty services. Hair removal is a spa specialty, whether via warm wax, thin threads, or the same lasers that shaved the beard off the man in the moon. The aestheticians also oversee slimming VelaShape treatments and skin-resurfacing HydraFacials that help keep complexions youthful and smooth in case the Bravo camera crews show up.
Treatment at Advanced Laser & Medical Spa of Rye usually begins with a consultation with a medical aesthetician with supervision from board-certified medical director, Dr. Micheline Giovani. Being onsite allows her to oversee the med spa?s staff and array of services, which include Botox injections, microdermabrasions, non-invasive facelift Ultherapy, and chemical peels. More technologically advanced cosmetic techniques include acoustic-wave therapy for thickening collagen in cellulite-prone areas and laser therapy for removing skin blemishes and body hair.
Certified reflexologist Jonny Zhang knows your feet like the back of her hand. By using natural pressure points, her pain-relieving reflexology techniques can alleviate lower-layer aches that are generally inaccessible through traditional methods. This bodywork can be tailored to clients' unique needs and is an ideal solution for arthritis, allergies, migraines, constipation, menopausal pain, and cravings for chicken nuggets in the shape of a foot. She also focuses on managing constipation and reducing swelling in feet, ankles, and legs.
Certified laser professional Marie Giacovas draws on more than a decade of experience with Candela technology to permanently reduce unwanted hair at Westchester Laser Associates. She and her laser-certified partner, Joanne Santorelli, target follicles with Candela's FDA-approved GentleLase system, creating a sensation akin to the rubber-band snaps commonly used in armed thumb wars. Treatments take permanent effect after four to eight sessions, although hair's coarseness and thickness may begin to dwindle after fewer sessions.
Alternatively, the two-person team can contour physiques with as few as four FDA-approved VelaShape treatments, which reduce the circumference of problem areas while smoothing away cellulite. The treatment barrages the targeted body part with radio frequencies and infrared light while ironing out dimples with a vacuum and mechanical massage.
Gentle Touch Lasers' master technicians aim LED light at teeth to brighten them with technology from SmileLabs. In addition to whitening dental dandies, they also harness the power of concentrated light to eliminate unwanted tufts of body hair over the course of multiple 15- to 30-minute sessions. Each treatment series starts off with a consultation and skin analysis, followed by a stint under the warm caress of a laser. Because of the gentle nature of the technology, treatments require no downtime and no lucky pennies to be effective.
