Aesthetic authority Melissa Cavanaugh, who believes pampering is the key to self-confidence, has designed an upscale, silver-and-white skincare haven called Deify Laser + Beauty Lounge located in the heart of Chelsea. 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.

Stepping into Green Planet Salon & Spa is much like entering a botanical garden—your senses are nurtured by lush green hues and glimmering colors. Lime green curtains offset opalescent tiled walls and shimmering floors, and tall bamboo stalks lean against the walls, drawing eyes to the faux pebble creek that lines the salon’s perimeter.
Within the relaxing haven, the beauty professionals carry a great responsibility with their jobs—as the salon explains, “When a woman realizes that she looks good, her job, her business and personal life becomes harmonious and successful.” The hairstylists work to boost clients’ confidence with a range of products—including INOA, L’Oreal, and Sebastian—when adding long-lasting color to manes and snipping away split ends to add to their split-ends collections. Meanwhile, aestheticians smooth faces with Osmosis medical skincare products during facial treatments that wash away acne-causing bacteria or infuse skin with vitamin C. Bodies relish in the Ionithermie algae-detox treatment’s mixture of algae, seaweed, and ivy, which detoxifies the body and reduces the appearance of cellulite in reaction to a gentle electrical stimulation.
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.
At Advanced Skin Solutions, registered nurse Cindy Castellani applies extensive clinical experience to deftly exfoliate faces with chemical peels and the HydraFacial MD device, featured on ABC, CBS, and Fox News. A skin-softening formula spouts from the HydraFacial hand piece as Cindy scrubs away dead skin cells and unwanted face tattoos with the multiple abrasive edges of its spiral tip. Treatments can lessen the appearance of wrinkles, enlarged pores, oily skin, and brown age spots. With no downtime, newly softened faces may resume pillow lookalike contests and other everyday activities immediately following treatment.
?Pamper Yourself," two words stamped in gold that command all who enter Therapeutic Massage & Bodyworks' domain, asway with lush greenery. With this mandate always in mind and therapeutic scents lingering in the air, ice-cold goblets of lemon water or steaming cups of herbal tea comfort guests losing themselves in the fireplace?s warm, flickering ballet. Gentle exhalations stir the still air, raising scents that hint at fistfuls of rose petals and fruit-based masks that harness the same natural powers as the fine mud and fresh avocados enhancing the salon?s full-body treatments. A reliance on the bounty of Mother Nature carries through into massage treatments that use warm seashells to chase away stress. Skincare and body waxing are performed by licensed aestheticians who hold secondary certification in zamboni operation.
Describing itself as an "ultra-relaxing urban escape," Skin Station radiates tranquility from its outdoor patio garden to its private treatment rooms stocked with the latest aesthetic technology.

Hot-stone massages and scrubs enriched with brown sugar and Dead Sea–mud help leave bodies feeling soft and stress-free, while unwanted hair can be swiftly evicted with light technology, sugaring, strongly worded letters, or traditional wax treatments.
