Sharing the stories and wisdom accumulated during 25 years as an aesthetician, Katy Yip, who holds a diploma from the prestigious CIDESCO and is a licensed esthetician and tattoo artist, wields products from brands including Decléor Paris, Elene Paris, blinc, Farah Beauty Specialist, Soskin Paris, and GrandeLash. Tendrils of fragrance unfurl from aroma-infused swiss body massages, and patrons parade past with fresh permanent makeup in precise lines designed not to smudge or aggravate sensitive skin. Assorted facials call upon aromatic masks, pulsating light, and collagen to combat the appearance of wrinkles, allowing newly revitalized patrons to press their faces more appealingly against pet-store windows.
Shoots of green leaves punctuate the white walls in the dim, quiet room. The greenery works in concert with a grouping of healing crystals and a glowing trio of candles to fill the serene space with an earthy energy. This marriage of relaxation and nature is the basis upon which GoGreen Organic Spa was founded, evidenced in the staff’s eschewal of chemical-filled products for the eco-friendly, organic Éminence skincare line used in all of their treatments. GoGreen’s crew of aestheticians bustles about the spa lavishing natural services upon patrons’ weary bodies, soothing cheeks from the pinches of passing grandmas with a Peace Facial or incorporating organic champagne and apricot oil in a Divine Massage therapy treatment for two.
The board-certified physician, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses at Aura Skin Spa help to halt the sands of time with FDA-approved technologies and aesthetic services. They glide high-intensity alexandrite and YAG wavelength lasers over dermal layers, which deliver cease-and-desist letters to hair follicles and sculpt comely silhouettes with SmartLipo MPX treatments. A range of skin services including microdermabrasion allow the crew to exfoliate and moisturize fa?ades until they glow more than a radioactive lightning bug.

Soft track lighting blooms across the exposed brick, potted plants, and floor-to-ceiling artwork at La Peau Day Spa. The scents of sea mud, milk, and honey fill 15 private treatment rooms in the 3,000-square-foot facility. Aestheticians wield those and other paraben-free, natural ingredients beneath shelves of Dermalogica and G.M. Collin elixirs. Green-tea baths soak feet in antioxidants, releasing steam that hints at crushed herbs, open fields, and the only food teddy bears know how to prepare.
