For more than a decade, Stacy Francis has practiced aesthetics. Her training at DePasquale informs her approach to skincare, particularly her commitment to delivering completely personalized treatments to each individual. At Aesthetics For You, she upgrades outer beauty through facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments while fostering inner harmony with spa perks such as fine linens and fragrant emollients. Her wellness center is quaint and inviting—the two-story building is a repurposed home complete with a wraparound deck and a couch fort. In addition to rooms for photofacials, body wraps, and waxing services, the building hosts a small spin studio.
Alora Ambiance Spa owner Patricia Rivas has worked as a licensed aesthetician and skincare specialist for nearly a decade. Along the way, she's picked up advanced certifications in treatments such as cellulite-smoothing ionithermie and IPL hair removal, teamed up with Dr. Thomaso Skorupski, and assembled a staff of talented hairstylists, nail artists, and waxing specialists spread throughout two studios. There, staffers dole out specialty services, including eyelash perms and extensions, exfoliating salt-glow treatments, and facials that infuse faces with more oxygen and nutrients than a granola-filled balloon. Beyond stocking the shelves with aesthetic aids from such brands as Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and Pravana, Rivas is also the creator of the Ayurveda by Alora skincare line, which includes soap- and- sulfate-free cleansers, as well as body creams infused with white tea and vitamins C and E.

Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
At Omni Aesthetics, Dr. William Song helps every client fight the signs of aging, no matter their level of fame. Having treated everyone from regular folk to celebrities, Dr. Song has been seen on Good Morning America touting the benefits of his nonsurgical Ultherapy ultrasound face-lifts. A specialist in aesthetic medicine, he also employs noninvasive lasers and injectables to reduce fine lines, and his staff's microdermabrasion and hydrafacial treatments restore the skin's natural complexion before it gets erased from too much flash photography. Dr. Song now offers non-surgical facelifts using the client's fat as a filler.
Jessica, a licensed aesthetician with more than 10 years of skincare experience, knows that there's no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to obtaining healthy skin. That's why she tailors each service to meet different needs. Teenagers benefit from anti-blemish facials, guys feel refreshed after gentlemen's facials, and those looking to combat fine lines or reverse sun damage find the help they need in a micropeel treatment. To refine skin tone and texture, Jessica can also administer a microdermabrasion session, which uses a machine that is designed to be less irritating to skin since it doesn't contain crystals or tell knock-knock jokes.
