Skin Spa New York's seven Manhattan locations all represent the same business, but you wouldn't know it by stepping inside. That's because the spa strives to imbue each spot with the feel of its surrounding neighborhood, whether it's the bustling atmosphere of Midtown or the artsy character of Chelsea. Whatever the address, every studio brims with a mix of pamper-centric spa and results-oriented med-spa services using products such as PCA Clinical Skin Care and glo therapeutics. Private massages and full-body waxing complement the purifying effects of facials, which target individual issues such as blemishes and fine lines. Meanwhile, higher-tech treatments can revamp the entire body without a single incision, thanks to light-based techniques such as the collagen-boosting Laser Genesis, skin-tightening Titan laser, and anti-aging Photolight and Limelight facials, which remove signs of sun damage. A company-wide collection of more than 20 lasers can help clients rid themselves of hair by targeting and destroying the follicles that grow it. A plentiful stock of skincare serums is also available for purchase, allowing clients to keep their skin pristine at home.
Across the spectrum of hair, body, and skin treatments offered at Bon-Bon Hair Salon and Spa, is a uniting theme of personalized attention. The practitioners pride themselves on their ability to make each client feel like they're the only person in the world, regardless of whether they're getting a facial with seaweed and Vitamin C, a body scrub with lavender and marine salts, or a calming massage with aromatherapy. The hairstylists, who've been featured in publications such as Us Weekly, lavish the same attention on clients, taking into account each one's features before fashioning a haircut or adding color to the mix. The spa also excels in just-for-men services such as haircuts and beard trims, but whatever the treatment, the staff's goal is to make the experience as enjoyable as the results are beautiful.
Skintology Skin and Laser Center’s experienced specialists help faces and bodies shrug off worn-out looks to reveal their fresher selves. Their lasers strip away unwanted hair, wayward veins, and signs of aging such as photodamage and memoirs written in wrinkles. Different types of liposuction suit a variety of lifestyles, while facial implants and injectables re-sculpt careworn mugs. Specialists are also adept at less intensive spa treatments, unclogging craniums with gentle ear candling sessions. Clients continue the pampering experience at home with the help of products that include Skintology's own proprietary line.
At Skin Care and Laser Center, the aesthetic team mixes together European training and advanced technology to combat signs of aging. They target acne and sun damage with the laser and intense pulsed light of the MediLux system. Other laser systems, such as Candela's GentleYag laser, tighten skin and remove unwanted body hair with a variety of treatment-spot sizes for faster sessions. During each session, the GentleYag's patented dynamic cooling device and softly crooned Vanilla Ice lyrics minimize discomfort.
Dr. Mariana Boneva understands the experiences of many of her clients firsthand. After undergoing a life-altering facial injury, the Beauty Plus Aesthetics founder began to study skincare treatments, mastering aesthetic laser and cosmetic procedures in Europe and the U.S. She harnesses her personal experience and professional expertise to address each client holistically as she doles out advice and helps them look their best.
Under the guidance of certified physician assistant Jessica Plotnick PA-C, MMSc, and board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Elizabeth Almeyda, M.D. and Dr. Scott Zevon, M.D., the staff at Central Park Plastic Surgery harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology that's designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires no downtime.
