Located within the Radisson hotel, Rio Aesthetic Center & Spa specializes cosmetic laser services, massages, and facials. Experienced technicians utilize the Alma Laser Soprano XL, which boasts a rapid and virtually painless IN-Motion feature that removes unwanted hair on all skin types, including tanned or spandex. Other members of the cosmically talented Alma Laser family also play prominent roles in the spa's aesthetic lineup, including the Laser360, which is designed to stimulate collagen growth and elasticity and combat signs of aging. Staffers also incorporate laser technology into facials such as the Hydra Lift, which combines a radiofrequency laser with microdermabrasion or a professional peel. In addition to English, the multilingual staff speaks Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian, creating a worldly vibe amplified by Brazilian–style décor and a receptionist fluent in Vulcan. Potted palms and paper lanterns lend an air of relaxation to vibrant tomato-red massage rooms, and lobby track lighting illuminates shelves stocked with quality take-home products from brands such as glo therapeutics.
Kesha Lambert Photography and the AboutFace Makeup Artist Network teamed up to create Lash to Lens, a one-stop shop for customized portraiture and modern lifestyle photography. Published in the New York Times, Boston Herald, and OK! magazine, Kesha Lambert and her supporting cast of savvy shutterbugs create a relaxed and fun environment for capturing life’s most memorable moments, whether it be a candid family photo, a sizzling boudoir portrait, or a reproduction of The Last Supper starring a litter of beagles. Each session is tailored to the client’s style and personality, incorporating clever props and interesting locales to create a customized photo shoot as unique as the subjects it snaps. AboutFace’s senior makeup artist, Charlene Armstrong, uses top-quality beauty products to hide blemishes, eliminate shine, conceal red eyes, and distract attention from obtrusive bunny ears, resulting in camera-ready countenances.

For the sore spirit, they give reiki treatments, which uses energy to heal and relax.
Geri, the head of Restore Skin Care and Aesthetics, isn't afraid to go the extra mile to make her clients look beautiful, or the extra thousand miles, for that matter. In 2010, in response to the lace-front trend, she made a trip to China to place a custom wig order.
Today, she applies that same level of commitment to beautifying her clients' skin at her New Rochelle spa. There, she offers treatment from acne-preventing chemical peels to artfully placed beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport.
