Guided by the expertise of Dr. Keith Gurland, the chief of ophthalmology at Bayonne Medical Center, the optical experts at Specs Unlimited have been calibrating prescriptions and outfitting eyes with name-brand frames for more than a quarter century. The full-service eye-care center flatters faces with designs from Prada, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren while also sharpening eyesight to read street signs or the fine print on tattoos. The professionals also fit contact lenses for patients hoping to walk through the world with ears and noses unshackled by spectacles.
Stepping into Ariana Day Spa's cozy interior might feel like entering the home of an old friend. In the charming waiting room, printed-fabric chairs flank a plush leather couch, while a nearby table welcomes new arrivals with freshly brewed coffee, candy, and photos of you at the lake from 10 years ago. Farther inside, miniature chandeliers cast their glittering light across the floor. These elegant atmospheric touches set the stage for the spa's luxurious services, which range from the functional—waxing and mani-pedis—to the decadently relaxing—hot stone massage with eye compresses.
A line of salon chairs?each facing an ornately framed mirror?hosts clients as stylists snip their hair into modern and timeless cuts.

In another area of the day spa, spray-tan technicians coat bodies with a UV-free formula that dries without leaving unsightly streaks or argyle patterns.
Studio A Salon helps guests fully realize their beauty with a slate of hair and spa services.

They also have some specialty med-spa services: Cavitation, which helps burn fat deposits in the body, and infrared sauna services, which help people sweat out toxins.
Serenity Day Spa aims to fill patrons with tranquility from the moment they walk into the earthen-hued lobby and gaze at the modern furniture or smell the fresh flowers. Trained massage therapists unravel tightly wound muscles, and aestheticians remove dead skin during custom facials. Between treatments, patrons can relax in the Serenity Day Spa’s Zen lounge, where they can make their own crackling sound effects before the glowing faux fireplace.
