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.

Dexter Phillip, a 20-year veteran in the fashion and beauty industry, created the DEX New York signature mineral-makeup line. Made with plant-derived extracts, the hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free makeup aims to boost skin's regenerative properties and stimulate collagen production while providing wearers with runway- and street-inspired looks.

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.
In addition to caring for patients' health at her clinic Le Pavillon Garries, Dr. Rosetta Garries harnesses her medical skills to transform her guests' appearance at Tiffany Elle Esthetics. At the med spa, which is housed within her medical practice, she and her staff beautify guests with a lineup of noninvasive treatments, many of which work to reshape the body, including radio frequency skin-tightening treatments and ultrasonic fat-reduction sessions. The team also helps combat the signs of aging with chemical peels and injectables such as Radiesse and Botox, and aim their laser beams to rid bodies of unwanted hair, tattoos, and unidentified orbiting objects.
Though medically-minded in its approach and effectiveness, this beauty-oriented branch of her clinic is also designed to completely immerse clients in tranquility, providing what Dr. Garries calls "the ultimate oasis in a busy metropolis." Soft music lulls guests into serenity as they're engulfed by panoramic views of the skyline, and plush leather couches comfort guests as they discuss their prospective treatments.
