The team of spa and medical professionals at Aura Laser Skin Care dispenses FDA-approved treatments whenever possible. When fine-tuning the appearance of men and women through laser hair removal, SmartLipo, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peels, only treatments given the official thumbs-up are used on clients. For newer procedures, the staff relies on advanced systems to soften skin, slim shapes, or eradicate troublesome moons orbiting newly glowing complexions.

Envy Nails' troop of nail-honing technicians crafts sleek, stylish digits with spa treatments, decorative nail designs, and a smooth finish of OPI polish. To kick things off, patrons remove their shoes and ventriloquist dummies so staffers can get to work buffing and filing nails on feet and hands, sending wayward cuticles back to their nail-base homes. Utilizing the grainy ministrations of a sea-salt scrub, aestheticians slough away roughened skin to unveil smooth epidermal expanses before guiding limbs into a paraffin dip, which works to seal in more moisture than Davy Jones's line of tupperware. Staffers then adorn nails with a seamless coat of OPI polish, creating smudge-free finger accessories in the client's color of choice. Patrons opting for nail designs can opt to bedeck their big toes and thumbs in a variety of spirals, flowers, or artistic depictions of sock tyranny.
The technicians at Longevity Medical Clinic's aesthetics division, BellaMedica, foster a relaxed environment, helping clients achieve beauty goals by creating an individualized treatment plan from a variety of services, from Botox to laser hair removal. Photofacials help rejuvenate age- and weather-damaged skin, and skin-tightening treatments boost collagen production with infrared light. Staff members combat signs of aging with wrinkle-fighting products by SkinMedica, Jan Marini, Image, Lira Cosmetics, Clarisonic and Jane Iredale.
Going beyond the pure pursuit of relaxation, the practitioners at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. work closely with doctors, chiropractors, and hospitals to help ensure a more well-rounded result. To accommodate a variety of clients, the staff has outfitted each massage room with cushy tables perched hydraulic lifts. The highly accessible tables make it easy for patients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility to enjoy a seamless transition from the outside world to the indoor relaxation station. For additional comfort, the beds also feature heaters that allow patients to fully unwind and soften any butter packets that may have been pocketed during last night’s dinner date.
Nurse practitioner Olga Voloshina and her team of aestheticians divide their services into three categories, though all three serve the same purpose: to enhance the appearance of skin. The medical-grade facial services do so traditionally, with the help of cleansers, moisturizers, and exfoliation in the form of peels and microdermabrasion that are individually customized for each client. The laser and light treatments are more technologically savvy. During these, intense light penetrates the skin, dissipating the blood supply to vascular or pigmented lesions causing them to dissipate, helping to clear up conditions such as rosacea, acne, and sun damage. Finally, they administer injectables such as Botox and Dysport to freeze muscular movements so that wrinkles on the skin's surface smooth out. Of course, before beginning any procedure, a staff member consults with each client to devise the proper treatment plan for the client's skin woes.
