Nina Julian Salon is bringing a tiny touch of Hollywood glamour to Huntington Station, starting with the framed picture of Marilyn Monroe that graces the salon’s sky-blue walls. The movie star sits with her chin in her hands, as if passing time by watching the stylists hard at work creating trendy cuts or bestowing heads with eye-catching feather extensions. An elegant chandelier casts a romantic glow as clients become red-carpet ready with sleek blowouts or curling-iron styles, or allow stylists to paint their strands with face-framing highlights to mentally prepare for an upcoming film role as “salon guest #1.”
Under the guidance of a doctor, the team at No Linez Aesthetics & Laser rely on light to make clients look their best. Their lasers safely vanquish unwanted hair and veins, or help to stimulate the skin's collagen production and reduce signs of aging. They can even target acne scars and current blemishes at the same time.
But laser beams aren't the only tools the team uses to address beauty concerns and flush Batman out of the rafters?they also customize facial peels, administer injectables, and perform PRP treatments, which rejuvenate the skin with the client's own blood plasma.
Stephanie Wrubel, licensed clinical aesthetician and owner of The Skin Clinic, the recipient of the 2013 Best of Huntington Award in the Medical Spa category by the Huntington Award Program, helps to solve visitors? epidermal maladies with organic skincare salves and advanced med-spa technology. Aided by medical aesthetician Deirdre Blanco, Stephanie clears away oil and expired poker faces with facials, glycolic peels, and acne treatments that uproot dead cells to reveal healthy, youthful skin. Alternatively, noninvasive laser treatments target spider veins, unwanted body hair, and cellulite, leaving epidermal expanses smoother and more evenly toned.
Overseen by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elliott Duboys, Embrace MediSpa's team can remove stubborn hair with laser hair removal. But the team's specialty is surgical and nonsurgical anti-aging procedures. Licensed aestheticians perform IPL photofacials to minimize signs of aging caused by UV rays, smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating complexions; dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane, meanwhile, reduce the appearance of wrinkles via injection. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels round out the selection of beauty services.
Technology gently winds back Mother Nature's clock at Aesthetic Medical Network, where lasers and radiofrequency can do anything from boosting skin-plumping collagen to smoothing away cellulite. The staff's ease with modern beautification techniques lends itself to a broad range of services, including problem-area-targeted med-spa treatments such as laser hair removal and top-notch traditional spa facials augmented by peels or complimentary portraits by an out-of-work courtroom artist.
Like an Indiana Jones film, Ritual Wellness & Laser Spa is a mix of ancient tradition and seemingly supernatural technology. But rather than recovering artifacts, the spa is trying to recover youth. During skin-tightening treatments, the GentleYAG laser stimulates collagen production, which in turn causes wrinkles and imperfections to fade. When scheduled in tandem with facial rejuvenation acupuncture—a procedure meant to tone the muscles of the face and neck—the treatment leaves features especially bright and refreshed, without the aid of surgery.
The staff relies on lasers for IPL photofacials as well as hair and spider-vein removal. Otherwise, they smooth out complexions with microdermabrasion, peels, and facials. During an antioxidant trio facial, for example, they apply nutrient-rich creams and heated compresses to the skin to combat signs of environmental damage, such as fallen leaves stuck to your forehead. They also administer services for the body, from slimming body wraps to soothing massages.
