At Skincare By Gina, licensed aesthetician Gina knows that everyone has different skin. That's why she always starts her appointments with a thorough skin analysis. She customizes her array of anti-aging treatments, such as microdermabrasion, whitening facials, and glycolic peels, to suit each client's skin. In addition to turning back beauty clocks, she also elongates lashes with extensions and removes unwanted hair with waxing treatments.
Desiree Chmura was a featured aesthetician at the 2010 Aesthetic Everything Oscar Gifting Suite, and, as she pampered famous pores before the Academy Awards, she realized she wanted to open up her own med spa. She's trained in a sweeping array of medical-grade skincare and cosmetic disciplines and has advised listeners on Cosmo's XM radio show on how to reduce inches with a seaweed wrap and how to ensnare a crush with a pair of tweezers.
To create her spa, Desiree corralled a staff of nurses and aestheticians. With treatments that range from deep-cleansing facials and ear candling to dermal fillers and photofacials, guests of all beautification goals can find a service right for them.
Serving more than 5,000 clients since 2007, Dr. Ismail Ozcan and the rest of the experienced staff at Oz Medi-Spa Center wield a laser to combat acne, wrinkles, sun spots, pregnancy masks, and unsightly body hair. Male and female technicians are available to operate the device, which emits pulsating beams of light that penetrate the layers of skin to tend to issues. Dr. Ozcan also performs laser-free fixers, including Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero injections, as well as microdermabrasion and varicose vein treatments. The center is open six days a week with flexible appointment times.
At Visage Skincare Spa and Cosmetic Laser Center, a highly trained staff cultivates beauty and wellness with relaxation services and anti-aging treatments. Part med spa and part day spa, the facility teems with massage therapists who knead away muscle tension, paramedical aestheticians who tighten skin with Thermage treatments, and board-certified nurse practitioners who inject FDA-approved wrinkle smoothers such as Botox and Juvéderm. More high-tech than a horse-drawn spaceship, a Visia imaging system guides complexion analyses, measuring sun damage and hyperpigmentation to help technicians build custom skincare plans. The spa also doubles as a party destination, where revelers can indulge in champagne and hors d’oeuvres between facials and massages.
At Serenity Source Massage, a thought-provoking sign greets visitors as they enter. It doesn’t tell them to merge, stop, or yield to leaping dolphins. Instead, it challenges them to better their lives with one bold word: “simplify.” To fuel the simplification process, licensed massage therapists help muscles let go of stress, tension, and stiffness. Signature 80-minute massages tether the body to the mind with a custom blend of flowing strokes, acupressure, and trigger-point therapy complemented by warm towels and soothing heat packs. Add-ons such as a scalp massage or a foot sugar scrub promote blood flow to boost energy and facilitate healing. Chiropractors can help target pain sources with careful adjustments and exercises that cultivate mobility and strength.
Upon stepping into Pur Salon & Day Spa, visitors are ushered into a draped waiting lounge. There, they can sip beverages from the wet bar or cruise free WiFi. This is the first indication of Pur Salon & Day Spa’s mission to provide a pampering refuge for their clients. Beyond the waiting room, aestheticians specialize in nourishing spa treatments, wrapping skin in seaweed and soothing muscles with six varieties of massage. Additionally, Pur Salon & Day Spa’s stylists furnish clients dozens of hair services—they brighten tresses with hair color. They enhance Morse code blinks with individually applied eyelashes. And they whisk away unwanted fuzz from head to toe with gentle waxing services.
