For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which rely on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and teeth whitening.
Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
Skin Beautiful's safe, gentle whitening treatment combines an LED light with a hydrogen-peroxide gel for fast whitening action that yields long-lasting results. After your treatment, you’ll also receive futuristic touch-up teeth-whitening pens to eliminate pesky gravy stains. The treatment contains twice as much hydrogen peroxide as store-bought treatments, and it works with sensitive teeth. You can expect immediate results, and, like a tiny toy clown that grows in water, your teeth will continue to whiten for 24 hours.
At New York Salon & Spa, hairstylists tend to tresses amid sleek, white decor accented by light hardwood floors and other modern design touches. They create new looks for guests that range from basic haircuts to formal updos or highlights.
Surrounded by yellow walls, lushly patterned drapery, and large gilded mirrors, the savvy stylists at Le Beaute' Boutique create chic coiffures with cuts, color, and other hair services. Tress wranglers tame wild follicles with a haircut ($42+ for women; $22+ for men) and concoct curls with nothing more than a wink of a third eye during a perm ($75+). Clients can stand out in a crowd of monochromatic manes with a partial foil highlight ($65+) or prepare for a stint in the witness protection program with a full-color change ($47+). Updos ($40+) glam up head hair for special events, such as proms or a driver's license exams.
Like any special-effects company, Derm FX specializes in seemingly impossible transformations. Their effects, however, are meant to be tangible and lasting. The med spa uses technology such as an Eclipse Q Switch laser to repair the skin and remove troublesome blemishes, even if they happen to be tattoos. They also administer chemical peels and collagen-induction therapy, both of which aim to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and other signs of damage. Though the majority of their services are geared toward fading unwanted imperfections, the staff also augments appearances with permanent makeup.
