Led by physician and trained surgeon Dr. Ihsan I. Jabbour, the medical staff at PureSkin—which includes a registered nurse and two physician assistants—strives to make wrinkle reduction as convenient as possible. Working out of several locations, the skilled clinicians administer cosmetic injections to calm crease-causing muscles, and they diminish facial lines for up to one year with dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse. The crew will even travel to deliver a custom Night of Beauty, allowing groups of friends to enjoy age-reversing treatments in the comfort of their own home or favorite unlocked mansion.
Don't let the serene atmosphere fool you?Natural Balance Massage, LLC is not a day spa. Sure, it may feel like one, but the goal here is much more than a simple escape from stress. The therapists focus their efforts on promoting long-lasting wellness and recovery, and they do so with a range of targeted treatments. Their specialties include Swedish, hot-stone, and Thai table massages, along with soothing massages for couples.
Sunny Waitze, M.D. and fellow of the American College of Surgeons, oversees Pomperaug Plastic Surgery/Ageless Medi Spa, where clients receive a variety of surgical and med-spa treatments for their skin and body. Services range from breast modifications to noninvasive skin rejuvenation intended to increase collagen and tightness.
Led by Dr. Arnold Rivera and PA-C Scott Callahan, Dolce Vida Medical Spa's skilled staff performs high-tech skin and body rejuvenations alongside relaxing spa treatments. Light-based body-sculpting sessions, IPL skincare, and injectable solutions such as Dysport and Radiesse help patrons remain youthful without wearing their senior-class photo as a mask. Drawing from an apothecary of high-end skincare products from Éminence, SkinTherapeutic, and Revision Skin Care, aestheticians nurture façades with specialized masks, and massage therapists ease tension from torsos with hot stones, lava shells, frozen oven mitts, or bare hands.
A graduate of the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, Rachel Felson helms New Haven Rolfing, where she performs the specialized service in an effort to release built-up tensions and adhesions in clients of varying ages and backgrounds. During Rolfing sessions, Felson manually loosens connective tissue, or fascia, by kneading the labyrinthine network with her fingers, hands, and elbows. After roughly one hour of the holistic bodywork, visitors may notice an improvement in their health, observing higher levels of elasticity in their tissue and a greater feeling of balance on tightrope commutes to work. Among its myriad benefits, Rolfing boasts the ability to improve individuals’ posture, decrease anxiety levels, and amplify energy for long-distance pogo-stick marathons.
Shahla Day Spa & Threading’s therapists and aestheticians continue to add to their 35 combined years of industry experience, pampering clients with mani-pedis, threading and waxing services, and rejuvenating massages and facials. Just as the aestheticians use the natural sunlight that floods the spa’s interior to thread eyebrows with precision, the nail technicians reference the polished wooden floors to add the appropriate level of gloss to freshly trimmed toenails. The spa’s private room seems a world away from the bustle of the main floor, and its peaceful atmosphere only enhances the soothing strokes of Swedish massages. This room also hosts waxing services and custom facials that remove dirt and oil from skin or smooth out the wrinkles on a favorite Richard Nixon mask.
