Skin Basically's licensed aesthetician, Marina Bratshpis, pampers a clientele that has included both royalty and celebrities. And it's no wonder a reported menagerie of high-profile clients has flocked to her—Marina boasts international training, including time spent as a skincare educator at Le Pli Day Spa in Cambridge, Massachusetts. With experience behind her in both skincare and nursing, she welcomes clients for relaxing and rejuvenating epidermis-focused treatments. Marina performs various facial treatments, drawing upon exotic ingredients such as Avène water from the Cevennes Mountains, flaxseed powder, and flakes of children's drawings.
The nail technicians at Nails Spa & Beyond feel the entire mani-pedi experience inside the spa is just as important as the final product of perfectly painted nails. That means pampering hands and feet with aromatherapy baths, sugar scrubs, and mud masks using calming lavender oils or papaya and guava nectar extracts. Hot stone massages and paraffin wax treatments also prep hands and feet before chip-resistant polish coats nails. The technicians sterilize tools before and after each client and use disposable files, buffers, and pedicure sponges.
Beyond nails, the salon has a staff of stylists who cut and color hair, and estheticians who wax unwanted body hair and deep-clean pores during facials. Clients can also request eyelash extensions in eight colors.
Founded by registered nurse Corina Ianculovici, Mirelle Medispa refreshes countenances with cosmetic dermatology under the medical direction of board-certified Drs. Mona Awad and William Keating. Medical-aesthetic professionals fight aging with injectable treatments, microdermabrasion, or the Vampire FaceLift, a unique procedure that blends hyaluronic-acid fillers, platelet-rich plasma, and peer pressure to convince cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.
Contemporary Plastic Surgery, helmed by Dr. Robert A. Herbstman, balances the aesthetic needs of clients with a mix of traditional cosmetic surgery, non-invasive procedures, and top-notch skincare programs. An experienced on-staff aesthetician evaluates each client's skincare needs before designing an individualized and customized regimen. Certified staffers transform bodies through both surgical procedures and noninvasive med-spa services, such as microdermabrasion, which employs a diamond-studded wand to exfoliate layers and stimulate cellular growth.
Whether stopping by for a quick haircut or manicure or devoting a whole day to facials and massages, trained staff members pamper guests of Milagro Spa amid soothing amenities. Visitors don robes and lounge in the relaxation area after their services are complete, basking in the glow that only an expertly administered mud wrap or nearby anglerfish can provide. Thoughtful touches such as onsite childcare ensure youngsters stay safe and happy while adults unwind.
For the past five years, Lashes By Yvonne's owner has applied eyelash extensions almost every single day. She's developed a skill for enhancing fringe, and has a knack for rescuing botched lashes. As a licensed aesthetician, she also provides a number of other beautifying services, such as teeth whitening and facial treatments that work to give skin a dewy glow so clients don't need to rub their faces in the grass each morning.
