With more than 20 years of experience, Doctors Barbara and Daniel Yip share a demeanour that their patients call "kind, personable, and empathetic" during a broad range of aesthetic services. Together, the two combat the external signs of aging while also infusing clients with internal energy and vitality. In order to reveal their clients' natural beauty, the doctors employ rigorously tested techniques proven to tighten aging skin, treat acne, or remove unwanted hairs that beg to be shaved off so they can explore the world.
Bodies find inner and outer solace inside Yasey Beauty Spa, where slimming treatments reduce cellulite and drop inches, and three essential facial treatments address specific skin needs. Added onto the cleansing effects of a simple facial, special regimens can add even more radiance by infusing skin with hydration using RosActive products or banishing signs of age with a caviar mask sure to woo the most itinerant of handsome oil barons.

At BM Chan—a cosmetology training academy that's also a full-service salon—she captains her team of beauty experts that includes stylists, massage therapists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists

They even pull hair styling techniques from Vidal Sassoon and Pivot Point to create their looks for both special events as well as entirely unremarkable events.
Calming background music and a warm cup of tea greet arriving clients in the lounge at Sonah Medspa, where the crackling fireplace and elegant plush furniture inspire a mindset for calm. In the quiet, cell-phone-free spa, the staff offers traditional relaxing services alongside state-of-the-art technology. Guests descend into infrared saunas to sweat out toxins and memories of outdated locker combinations, or relax on a massage table under a therapist’s skilled hands. Skin treatments rejuvenate visages during facials supplemented with vitamins and muds, and wraps exfoliate the entire body. High-tech procedures such as laser hair removal, photofacials, and noninvasive body contouring are also available, allowing clients to experience the treatments of tomorrow without peeking ahead in the page-a-day calendar.
For close to three decades, Nima?who specializes in clinical corrective facials?and the family members that help her operate her day spa have helped guests enhance the connection between their minds and bodies. This mission was further refined in recent years, when, after working long hours in the stressful, highly competitive beauty industry, the team knew it was time for a change from invasive surgeries and harsh chemicals. So, they set their sights on holistic body-beautifying treatments. Today, their menu of restorative services includes relaxing, organic sugar-scrub treatments and infrared body wraps designed to boost the metabolism with soothing thermal energy. Certified technicians also target stubborn fat cells with lipo-laser treatments or faradic-current sessions that, like doing the Running Man, simulate the effects of physical exercise.
Zen Wellness Spa?s aestheticians have a repertoire of spa services that range from traditional to advanced. This range of services allows them to offer a wider array of treatments when consulting with their clients on ways to fend off aging, weight gain, and stress. For example, they might recommend gua sha scraping therapy?a skin-tightening combination of friction and detoxification?for patients looking to reverse the tides of time. Otherwise, they might cocoon patients in infrared body wraps and usher them through the door to their infrared sauna. Throughout the week, their treatment rooms also house facials, microdermabrasions, waxing sessions, massages, and laser hair-removal light shows.
