Certified laser specialists, who are also laser-safety officers, first perform consultations, conducted on sleek iPads. They then utilize some of the most advanced laser hair-removal technology available?Candela's GentleLase and GentleYAG lasers?to remove hair on both light and dark skin.
Guests await an expanded list of services including organic spray tans, hair-removal sessions, laser facials, or hair and makeup appointments in a sleek environment that's been known to support the elegant frames of models and celebrities during Fashion Week.
Inside, clients morph into svelte beings through body contouring treatments or ignite their skin with a bronze glow via organic spray tans. Additionally, custom ?minence Organic facials, diamond tip microdermabrasion, laser facials, and body contouring treatments rejuvenate youthful appearances.
At Deify Laser + Beauty Lounge, iPad use defines much of the experience, ranging from consultation tool, to playing music and movies in the waiting area or during treatment, to photographing "before" and "after" shots to capture treatment results.

The more than a dozen brick-and-mortar locations that make up Ultimate Champions Taekwondo Association share not only a style of combat, but a teaching philosophy as well. Tracing the lineage of their combative art back to Grandmaster Sang K. Oh, the instructors adhere to his teachings, exemplified by the quote, "The person who can defeat others with flashy techniques but is without love toward his fellow man will in the end defeat himself." Students use the physical empowerment of mastering jumps, kicks, and weapons to arm themselves with discipline, confidence, concentration, self-respect, and courtesy for others.
Outside of the classroom, the organization reaches out to the tri-state community with ample demonstrations of some of their most exciting techniques. Practitioners soar skyward in flying kicks or fill the air with the whirring blows of nunchakus, bos, and kamas. Fists slam through boards, balloons, and bricks to demonstrate the striking power of tae kwon do and the structural flaws in the Three Little Pigs' panic room.
As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however?invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
The Massage Studio combines relaxing kneading sessions with a romantic atmosphere to create a cozy spa getaway that leaves guests unwound and stress free. Bring a mate, friend, or life-sized drawing of Elvis for respite from busy workdays with the 70-minute couples massage. Each individual will have his or her own personal, licensed therapist slugging stress with a muscle makeover while bodies relax side by side within a private room. Nimble fingers will lull muscular tension into a false sense of security with traditional Swedish-massage strokes before striking with soothing deep-tissue techniques to release hapless stress. The addition of hot-stone therapy warms up world-weary meatsuits, allowing for better absorption of oils and lotions and warmer muscles for clearing icebergs out of the paths of transatlantic cruise ships.
Dr. Jack Bertolino, a board-certified physician in Anti-Ageing medicine, and Jeffrey Leathersich, RPA-C, sit at the helm of the medical center's nonsurgical weight loss and beauty programs. They emphasize deliberate forethought and in-depth consultations to ensure that patients achieve their goals through weight loss or anti-aging treatments. To these ends, the skilled professionals never remove their monocles as they thoroughly execute fractional skin resurfacings, apply Botox for women and men, or beam away unwanted hair with lasers.
In her years of working as an aesthetician, Cari regularly listened to her clients' horror stories about laser treatments. Tales ranged from experiencing burns to suffering through sessions that were overpriced, ineffective, or actually just flashlights. Hearing this, she resolved to provide a customer-oriented alternative and added a laser-technician certification to her already impressive resumé.
Today, Cari's spa performs an abundance of client-pampering beauty services, from laser hair removal to permanent makeup. She also developed her own line of skincare products, made with ingredients such as red marine algae, ginseng, and aloe vera, which can soothe complexions during customized facials. Before any service, customers can schedule a free consultation to ask questions and create a secret handshake.
