Like many med-spas, Health & Wellness Center uses lasers to combat unwanted hair and beam away wrinkles. But unlike most, the facility's lasers are also calibrated to help patients quit smoking or lose unwanted pounds. Medical aestheticians help lift sagging faces sans surgery with IPL skin-tightening treatments that inundate collagen with waves of infrared light, causing tissues to contract and faces to appear more youthful. Injections of Botox and Juvederm also smooth and shape facial contours, and chemical peels with glycolic or salicylic acid dislodge dead skin by accelerating the natural process of exfoliation. To ensure patients leave healthy from head to toe, they also aim the cosmic technology to conquer toenail fungus, preparing feet for display in flip-flops or glass clogs.
Cosmetic and laser surgeon Dr. Susan Stevens Tanne and her staff provide clients with advanced skincare solutions that promote healthy, refreshed looks. Along with age-defying injectable and filler treatments, they beautify exposed epidermises with LED and laser treatments, facials, and chemical peels. Body Bling bronzing treatments flawlessly illuminate skin while eschewing usual tanning concerns such as UV exposure, spray tan odors, or the sun’s creepy, rictus grin. Soothing aromatherapy and hot towel treatments also imbue the med spa with a relaxing retreat-like vibe.
Since opening his own medical practice in 1986, Dr. Joseph S. Cervone has seen it all, from minor blemishes to serious skincare concerns. But what surprised the doctor most was the confidence and increased self-esteem his patients presented after he performed a cosmetic procedure for them.
This unexpected discovery led Dr. Cervone to begin slowly incorporating more nonsurgical procedures into his practice, with the goal of helping his clients feel even more satisfied and secure about their appearances. Eventually, he become the medical director of Concierge Skin Care, and since then Dr. Cervone and his friendly staff have helped restore youthful complexions with a range of aesthetic treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to laser hair removal and Botox injections.
The office can also help patients achieve more dramatic results with advanced procedures involving the latest ultrasound technology from VASER Shape, the skin-tightening powers of a Titan or Genesis laser, or spider-vein removal.
After her residency at Columbia University, Dr. Marion Shapiro earned her certificate from France's French Society of Mesotherapy. Since opening her own clinic in 2002, Dr. Shapiro has been profiled in Self, Elle, and Marie Claire magazines, as well as on TV news programs. Like the wheel, mesotherapy was invented in 1952. It refers to the practice of tackling a host of cosmetic symptoms—including excess fat or cellulite, hair loss, scars, and wrinkle—with specialized medical injections. In addition to mesotherapy face-lifts, Dr. Shapiro and her staff can also make mugs look younger with peels, fillers, and laser therapy. Body contouring, diet programs, and laser hair-removal procedures are available to match bodies to their freshly refreshed faces.
Dr. George C. Peck, Jr.’s career as a plastic surgeon has taken him all around the world, enhancing facial features and lecturing on the ins-and-outs of various cosmetic and reconstructive treatments. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, he has performed thousands of procedures, which continues to provide at Essex Surgical in West Orange. Dr. Peck is joined by a team of registered nurses and surgical technicians, as well as a skincare specialist, permanent makeup artist, and a roadie in charge of stethoscope tuning.
If it turns out practice doesn’t make perfect, Ethos Spa’s medical director, Dr. Hardik Soni, will be very disappointed. Dr. Soni, who specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, has performed more than 35,000 laser treatments over the course of his career. At his spa, he works with a team of plastic surgeons and aestheticians to perform even more, turning to laser beams’ power for a variety of purposes: minimizing the visibility of unsightly veins, tightening skin, and soothing acne. The med spa’s services extend beyond laser treatments, too. The team also instills clients with a youthful glow via microdermabrasion, Botox injections, facials, and making them sleep in glow-in-the-dark cribs.
