Najia Rohlf of Najia's Esthetic Skin and Laser Center beautifies skin with every tool at her disposal, from glo therapeutics products to Palomar lasers and electrolysis. In addition to a full list of waxing and tanning services, she removes unwanted hair with beams of light and banishes signs of aging with Botox. Once she has skin looking healthy, she decorates it with permanent makeup, semipermanent mascara, and sprinkles of glitter guaranteed to never go away.
Though she's an aspiring Real Housewife, Barbara Ellsworth is no stay-at-home mom. The cosmetic- and plastic-surgical nurse of 13 years oversees Larchmont Laser Medical Spa’s staff of medical aestheticians. The tranquil, robin's-egg-blue walls of her facility offer a suitably upscale backdrop for the slate of med-spa and beauty services. Hair removal is a spa specialty, whether via warm wax, thin threads, or the same lasers that shaved the beard off the man in the moon. The aestheticians also oversee slimming VelaShape treatments and skin-resurfacing HydraFacials that help keep complexions youthful and smooth in case the Bravo camera crews show up.
Located within the Radisson hotel, Rio Aesthetic Center & Spa specializes cosmetic laser services, massages, and facials. Experienced technicians utilize the Alma Laser Soprano XL, which boasts a rapid and virtually painless IN-Motion feature that removes unwanted hair on all skin types, including tanned or spandex. Other members of the cosmically talented Alma Laser family also play prominent roles in the spa's aesthetic lineup, including the Laser360, which is designed to stimulate collagen growth and elasticity and combat signs of aging. Staffers also incorporate laser technology into facials such as the Hydra Lift, which combines a radiofrequency laser with microdermabrasion or a professional peel. In addition to English, the multilingual staff speaks Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian, creating a worldly vibe amplified by Brazilian–style décor and a receptionist fluent in Vulcan. Potted palms and paper lanterns lend an air of relaxation to vibrant tomato-red massage rooms, and lobby track lighting illuminates shelves stocked with quality take-home products from brands such as glo therapeutics.
Cindy, a licensed aesthetician, caters to clients' skincare needs by performing treatments that use cutting-edge, medical-grade technology to create dramatic cosmetic results. Bare Touch Laser's FDA-approved Candela GentleLase system is capable of treating a wide range of skin and hair types, and the device's dynamic cooling system helps minimize any discomfort caused by the pulses of laser light energy. These pulses can bombard the follicles of unwanted stubble and prevent the hairs from growing back over time, or they can help by minimizing the appearance of unsightly veins, sun spots, or birthmarks.

The aesthetician at Sedora Spa unites her knowledge of natural ingredients with modern technology to help compensate for the shortcomings of plant-based skin products and radios made from coconuts. Ultrasonic massage devices shimmy across the skin with 28,000 vibrations per second to help break down blackheads, dirt, and grease while boosting circulation. Elecro facials firm up drooping skin by gently stimulating the muscles of the face and dive under the skin to kill the bacteria that causes break-outs. This technology works alongside skillful blends of Dead Sea mineral masks and natural butters and oils.
The team at Sedora Spa devotes itself to clients’ comfort. Cookies, snacks, and tea in the reception area greet incoming guests. In the candlelit treatment areas, clients can pick between vanilla and lavender aromatherapy or simply enjoy the cherry-almond scent of everyday oxygen.
MedLaser's extensively trained and certified technicians restore a youthful suppleness and glow to skin through minimally invasive laser-based procedures. Relying on sophisticated equipment and years of professional experience, staff members work to tighten sagging skin and invigorate complexions via photo-rejuvenation treatments. They also reduce the appearance of unsightly scars or ill-conceived tattoos of scars through tattoo and blemish revision. Laser hair-removal sessions ensure long-term smoothness, and laser sclerotherapy treatments shrivel spider veins underneath the glare of safe thermal lasers.
MedLaser also performs acne treatments, cellulite reduction, and the removal of facial capillaries and rosacea.
