ImPower Pilates combines traditional Pilates, the endurance- and repetition-based core-building exercise pioneered by Joseph Pilates, with tailored training equipment capable of increasing strength, flexibility, and balance. During tower classes, which are limited to four students with one Pilates-certified instructor, students boldly strap in and stretch out over their powerful resistance-riddled frenemies with the “Wall Unit.” With each spring-loaded strain-seducing repetition, instructors and their followers alike work rarely used muscles, pushing the limits of their perseverance, and upping the chances of nabbing sidewalk change without breaking stride. Those who take the tower class should have Pilates-mat or Pilates-equipment training experience.
Esthetix Dental Spa's roster of experienced dentists and staff keeps teeth smiling brightly and munching soundly with preventative and cosmetic services. During the 60- to 90-minute treatment, a friendly dental assistant ushers patients from the lobby to a treatment room for a pair of digital x-rays. The bitewing x-rays snap a portrait of how upper and lower teeth align, and the periapical shots reveal the entire tooth from crown to root tip, as well as any potential problems or gremlins that linger below the gum line in the jaw's jazzy speakeasy. With the digital images projected onto a computer screen, dentists can better illuminate results and counsel patients on overall oral health. During the full prophylaxis cleaning, plaque and tartar evacuate their illegal residence on enameled estates, fleeing as dental hygienists scale teeth surfaces by hand or electronically with breathy 4 a.m. phone calls. A final buff leaves choppers feeling smooth and clean, as if a convoy of mini zambonis detoured over mouths.

Gracing the pages of prominent publications, including the New York Times and Allure, New York Dermatology Group whips skin into an aesthetically sound shape with medical and cosmetic services lead by Dr. David Colbert. Crafted by the extensively trained hands of Dr. Colbert, the Triad Ultra treatment attacks skin from every unflattering angle with a trio of facial fabric smoothers for the face, hands, or feet. The 40-minute service begins with a session of microdermabrasion that gently vacuums dead layers of cells from stuffy façades. The session of laser toning sends 5,000 pulses across the surface area to shake out unwanted pigmentation while smoothing texture and energizing skin with collagen sugar highs. Complete the trifecta with a chemical-peel application, which delicately peels away layers of rough skin to reveal a radiant complexion that’s smoother than a sweet-talking dolphin.
