Board-certified physician Dr. Joel Lamm has studied the human body at large, but he specializes in the body’s largest organ: the skin. He draws on dermatology training undertaken at Johns Hopkins Hospital—as well as his three decades of field experience—at his current practice, Dermatology Center of Long Island. There, he and his team finesse skin with an array of treatments, from Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, and other dermal fillers to laser hair removal. The center's photo-rejuvenation treatments combat sun damage, age spots, and other blemishes. To further combat aging, the staff uses chemical peels and microdermabrasion to slough away tough outer skin, revealing brighter complexions below the surface.
Named for the Sanskrit word for “desire,” Trishna attempts to fulfill a woman’s desire to be beautiful by delivering beauty treatments and laser hair-removal services. Trishna’s collection of facials uses herbal ingredients, diamonds, and gold to delay signs of aging, help lymphatic drainage, and oxygenate the skin. The spa staff renders skin smooth with various types of hair-removal treatments, including waxing, threading, laser hair removal, and scaring the hair out by suddenly wearing a good Halloween or Dwight Eisenhower mask.
Soft robin's-egg-blue walls and warm wooden accents welcome beauty seekers to Blue Water's skin and body sanctum. The ultrasonic facial ($95), Blue Water's signature visage vivifier, uses ultrasonic vibrations to loosen and eliminate blackheads, dirt, and expired skin; the treatment includes a face, neck, shoulder, and arm massage. Or opt for an aromatherapy facial ($95), which uses essential oils to hydrate and plump tired cells while encouraging lymphatic drainage and delusions of grandeur. To give your body the radiance and dewy sheen of a well-groomed glowworm, use this Groupon toward an exfoliating lavender body scrub treatment ($110), or delight in the gentle kneads of a classic Swedish massage ($90 for an hour). Blue Water Spa also offers a variety of services for teens ($75 for a teen facial) and men ($95 for an hour-long gentleman's facial).
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.
At the North Shore Cosmetic Medical Center, Roger B. Katz, MD and his wife, Daryl Katz, schedule an array of both noninvasive and surgical cosmetic services. For over 20 years, the center has provided patients with effective treatments to address all of their cosmetic concerns. Skilled practitioners, trained by Dr. Katz, utilize master injection technique to enhance and restore the youthful contours of the face. Treatments include Botox, injectable fillers, chemical peels, cosmetic surgery, and permanent makeup.
Inside relaxing private rooms bedecked in earth-tone paints, oriental murals, and soft-lighting fixtures, experienced medical professionals administer rejuvenating, technology-driven treatments that bolster outer beauty without surgical intervention. FDA-approved laser systems take time off of aiding boardroom PowerPoint presentations to blanket patients' skin with energy wavelengths that can reduce body hair, dark spots, and acne. Board-certified surgeons utilize lab-created serums to ease the appearance of stress wrinkles and fine lines found on façades. To ensure patients pair up with the proper technological assistant, helpful technicians discuss all treatment options with Laser Plus Spa clientele before administering any procedures.
