The aestheticians at Bliss & Care erase signs of aging and protect skin from environmental damage with traditional spa services alongside laser-augmented treatments. Laser-assisted services include hair removal and acne-targeted therapies that use the heat of the elos IPL laser to blast acne-causing bacteria and reduce unsightly blemishes. Aestheticians customize facial treatments to address clients' individual skincare needs, from large pores to sagging skin, by mixing and matching skin-transforming agents such as seaweed, chemical peels, and lullabies sung in the complexion's mother tongue.
Every year, some 24 million people walk through the doors at Palisades Center. That's probably because the 2.2-million-square-foot complex allows them to perform just about any action verb imaginable: shop, eat, watch, laugh, skate, bowl, climb, and more ? there is something for everyone. Stretched across 130 acres, the four-level Rockland County destination features more than 250 stores and 16 sit-down restaurants. It also boasts complimentary WiFi, an ice rink, a bowling alley, and an indoor ropes course that sends thrill seekers soaring to heights of up to 85 feet. Such variety has helped Palisades Center become the eighth most-visited mall in America.
Tealights, check. Ornate chandeliers, check. Mirrors in vintage frames, check. With a location adjacent to The Shops of Nanuet shopping center, the proprietors of Katydid Skincare Boutique oversee a soothingly lit haven for clients to relax and renew. Within comfortable, private treatment rooms, spa techs can relieve stress and improve overall wellness with a range of massage modalities or aim to cleanse the skin with delicate facials. Waxing services can evict unwanted fuzz, and for guests who wish to accessorize tidied bodies, the boutique also stocks a range of jewelry, including earrings and bracelets.
With a kaleidoscope of hues at the ready, Star Nail & Spa?s technicians paint the rainbow onto clients? nails. Technicians use regular or Shellac polish, which protects nails from chips and scratches when clients are washing the dishes or petting their pet cacti. Manicures and pedicures include such pampering amenities as a foot soak, moisturizer, and nail buffing.
The trained techs of Innovative Esthetics Skin aim to relax and rejuvenate clients with advanced skin and spa services performed inside a tranquil beautification haven. Bodies can be effortlessly sculpted with the fat-emulsifying powers of a Liposonix body-contouring treatment, or the radio-frequency waves of a Thermage session. Chemical peels, stimulating massages, and vitamin-rich ingredients infiltrate seven types of facials, each tailored to meet the client's skin type and concerns. To create body trophies that shine brighter than a gifted child perched atop a unicorn, Innovative Esthetics? staffers use Candela GentleLase lasers to remove hair, and red and blue LED light-therapy systems to help treat acne, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea.
Most spas dabble in several aesthetic arts. But at Laser Hair Associates of Rockland, the staff specializes in a single service: laser hair removal. The three owners—each of whom holds laser technician certification—apply their expertise to all treatments at the center, targeting hair follicles with Candela’s FDA-approved GentleMAX laser. Just seconds before the laser permeates the follicle, the handpiece emits a spray of cooling cryogen, helping to prevent discomfort or prematurely melted ice cream. A few days before treatment begins, the technicians will also consult with clients and treat a test patch of skin to make sure it reacts well to the laser.
