Stacy Winick and Sofia Golberg may have been from two different parts of the world, but the beauty industry brought them together 20 years ago and has kept them in partnership ever since. The aesthetician from Russia who trained in Israel and the manicurist and past beauty shop owner from Boston met at a South Shore salon—a salon the co-owners thought they could surpass with their business plan. So they opened a beauty destination and named it after the French words for “beautiful face”—what Napoleon stamped on 63% of his soldiers' cheeks.
At the newly renovated Belle Visage Day Spa, Stacy and Sofia highlight their clients' natural beauty with manicures and pedicures, massages, makeup services, and specialized facials. Their diamond-tipped microdermabrasion tool clears dead skin cells to stimulate growth of healthier skin during the diamond peel, and their services don’t stop with the skin. Stacy and Sofia also present massages for knotted muscles and mani-pedis for hands and feet that just clawed a wedding ring out of the lint trap.

Healthy Fun Fitness's licensed massage therapist and team of aestheticians help root out aches and restore beauty by tailoring massages and facials to clients' needs. The 60-minute massages help dispatch tension and unknot sinewy cat's cradles with one of four modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone. Each massage is customized to meet the client's needs, allowing the massage therapists to zero in on trouble spots or paint an invisible, body-sized fresco using freestyle strokes. Alternatively, the signature stress-melting massage helps to awaken and harmonize the body with a stress-dispatching blend of Swedish-style massage and moist heat designed to gelatinize muscles into the consistency of marshmallow-coated lutefisk. The 60-minute facial can be adapted to every skin type, and is customized to each client's needs after a consultation helps outline a skin diagnosis. The personalized treatments amalgamate active ingredients sourced from the sea and from plants to moisturize skin and a restore the type of radiant glow typically reserved for schools of oceanic jack-o-lanterns.
