Describing itself as an "ultra-relaxing urban escape," Skin Station radiates tranquility from its outdoor patio garden to its private treatment rooms stocked with the latest aesthetic technology. Aestheticians specialize in customized, clinical facials that harness the hydrating, age-reversing powers of firming radio frequencies, vitamin C and collagen-rich serums, or age-spot clearing IPL. Hot-stone massages and scrubs enriched with brown sugar and Dead Sea–mud help leave bodies feeling soft and stress-free, while unwanted hair can be swiftly evicted with light technology, sugaring, strongly worded letters, or traditional wax treatments.
At LaseRx Medical Aesthetic Center, board-certified Dr. Adam W. Mauer rejuvenates vexed complexions of various skin types with minimally invasive procedures and SkinMedica serums. A self-described "human artist," Dr. Mauer fills out the furrows in cheeks with Botox injections and polishes skin to match the smoothness of sculpted marble with laser hair-removal treatments. His meticulous craft is on full display during Pixel Perfect skin-resurfacing treatments, which beam away sun damage, acne scars, and wrinkles in the forehead’s time-space continuum.
