Named one of America's Top Surgeons in 2009 by the Consumers' Research Council of America, Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj draws upon nearly 20 years of experience as he helps clients attain their desired appearance. Dr. Slupchynskyj, director and founder of The Aesthetic Institute of New York & New Jersey, is an innovator in his field, developing procedures such as the SlupLift, a one- to two-hour mini face-lift that results in minimal scarring and recovery time for patients. Double board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, he’s also a familiar face to the media, bringing his expertise to publications including Vogue, New York magazine, and Woman’s World.
The Aesthetic Institute’s two locations, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and in Chatham, provide a private, comfortable environment as clients receive high-quality care. Services range from Botox injections and rhinoplasty to reconstructive surgery, accommodating those seeking enhancements both large and small.
While dieting and exercise are the most basic weight-loss tools, Slender Inspirations Fat Loss adds a few more options to the toolbox. Rather than a one-size-fits-all diet, a nutritional counselor tailors regimens to each client’s metabolic type. Staff builds strength with whole-body-vibration treatments, which activate more muscles than conscious exercise or energetic sleeping. A similarly relaxed mode of slimming is the FDA-approved Vevazz machine, which shrinks fat cells via cold laser light.
Open Circle Holistic Wellness offers both internal and external paths toward improving health of the body and mind. Practitioners help center the mind through internal techniques, such as meditation instruction to help reduce stress. The staff also works to improve their clients' health by analyzing external factors, behaviors, and toxicity levels. Reiki sessions help restore the flow of the body’s natural energy, and raindrop therapy soothes the spine with therapeutic-grade essential oils. Practitioners can also help trim inches off the body through ultrasound cavitation and detoxify clients through ionic footbaths, infrared-sauna sessions, or Care Bear stares.
Andrea Schilling worked for nearly 15 years as a licensed massage therapist before her love of eastern medicine drove her to broaden her skill set. Combining her already significant knowledge of the body with extensive training in acupuncture techniques, Chinese medicine, and facial rejuvenation, Andrea founded Acupuncture Works so that she could provide her clients with comprehensive holistic health services. Specialties include acu-facials, infertility, and pain management.
The beauty professionals at nu glo medi spa want to give you everything you want—especially when it comes to youth and beauty. They reduce the appearance of acne and wrinkles with facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion and break up fat cells and cellulite with Cavi-Lipo treatments. They also remove unwanted hair with a botanical, wax-free hair-removal system from Nufree.
Phountain Health was founded on the theory that staying healthy involves balancing the body's pH levels. In addition to bottling pH-balancing alkaline water—soon to be available via delivery—Phountain Health hosts infrared-sauna sessions, which aim to improve circulation and oust toxins, as do the spa's ionic detoxifying footbaths. The business' communal approach can also be seen in hot-yoga classes, where clients work out together rather than sit alone on the couch sipping battery acid.
The clinicians at Cold Laser Therapy have aimed to accelerate the healing process with noninvasive laser light for more than 12 years. Cold-laser light is designed to help clients recover from torn ligaments, bone spurs, tendinitis, and lower-back pain by stimulating cellular turnover at the site of the injury, causing new cells to grow. At the same time, the laser light breaks apart the scar tissue that grows over injuries, boosting joint flexibility and reducing inflammation. Treatments won’t damage surrounding tissue and yield virtually no pain or recovery time.
