Within the cozy confines of a warm amber treatment room, a professional pamperer will diligently dote on your every digit for 90 minutes. The spa-deluxe manicure and pedicure begins with an aromatic soak, calming clients from littlest piggy to largest earlobe. After flippers and clappers are satisfactorily soothed, expired skin cells are carted away until limb-ends are as soft as babies' kneepits. Unruly cuticles are trimmed and nails are filed to shapely curves, followed by a hydrating whipped-creamy mask and a relaxing hand, arm, leg, and foot massage.

She staffs her three area salons with veteran aestheticians who perform waxing services as well as 10 different types of facials powered by a signature line of high-end, natural skincare products.
At Del Sol of Mineola Tanning Salon, Smart Tan–certified professionals match tanners with products and methods for safely achieving tropical hues. Standup and lie-down UV tanning beds boast five levels of strength, from basic to extreme. Bronzing and tanning lotions, including many products designed for sensitive skin, accelerate the efficacy of UV tanning. The salon also offers Norvell airbrush spray tans, which gild the skin without stimulating the body's natural production of melanin or 18-karat gold.
At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments. Together, they alleviate skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Alternatively, they beautify skin with lasers, tightening sagging areas or removing unwanted hair. Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
Expressions Salon & Spa's beauty mavens augment their extensive experience with continuing education so they can lavish digits with advanced polishing and pampering techniques. Nourishing oils and aromatherapy set a tone relaxing enough to forget about the molting sparrows in the kitchen throughout the nearly two-hour duration of the spa mani-pedi treatment. Sea-salt crystals partner with creamy balms to clear rough, hardened calluses from hands and feet, preparing fresh soles and palms for a hydrating massage. Afterward, hands and feet are bathed in a jewel-toned tide of OPI lacquer.
The licensed aestheticians at Omage Medi Spa strive to slenderize bodies and detoxify the skin with organic body wraps, exfoliating facials, and pampering massages. The body wrap swathes figures in an embrace of natural sea clay designed to draw away toxins, reduce the appearance of cellulite, obliterate dead skin cells, and prepare freshly slimmed clients to be accused of airbrushing real life. During the mini facial, a pore-scientist discusses each client's facial needs and cleans the epidermis before exfoliating the surface of the skin to oust dead skin cells. Warm steam opens pores, necessary extractions evict lingering blemishes, and a face-and-neck mask nourishes the skin. A mini massage treats patrons to 10–15 minutes of aromatherapeutic bliss, with delicate motions intended to stimulate circulation in the face, the neck, and the décolletage. Guests paint watercolor portraits of their rejuvenated selves with complimentary coffee, tea, or other proffered beverages during the approximately 90-minute treatment package.
