The staff at Galina?s European Skincare takes the term ?golden glow? literally. One of its specialties is the Golden Glow mask, a moisturizing blend of oat peptide, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and 24-karat gold dust. This sparkly treatment boosts collagen production and moisturizes skin so that faces look fresher and better able to guarantee a currency. Though not all of the spa?s services incorporate precious metals, they do work to improve the look and feel of skin. The staff members can suggest a combination of facials, peels, microdermabrasion, and anti-aging LED therapy to combat each client's particular skin issues. They also perform manicures and pedicures, apply eyelash extensions, and remove hair permanently using electrolysis.
Shaving and waxing are losing battles. After a matter of days or weeks, the stubble simply resurfaces and the process has to be repeated. At A&A Laser Electrolysis, owner Linda DeFruscio, medical director Dr. Joseph Russo and their staff members strive to turn the tide against stubble. The center's signature approach uses a combination of electrolysis and laser therapy to target unwanted hair and prevent it from growing back over time. Using sterilized, disposable gold probes for each treatment, the electrolysis technicians meticulously deliver bursts of heat energy to follicles. The GentleLase Pro cosmetic laser system takes a slightly different approach?albeit with the same goal?as it bombards hair with growth-inhibiting pulses of laser light energy. Although the center specializes in ridding bodies of routine stubble, it also specializes in stubborn realms of hair removal, including peach fuzz, white and gray hair, and feisty under-brow areas.
Bella Le Spa shapes, restores, and adds hues to clients’ nails with custom manicures and pedicures. In a one-hour pedicure, a talented digit decorator trims and tidies talons, halting the advance of cuticles and adorning them with a fresh coat of Essie or OPI polish. Nail technicians also exfoliate feet, apply a moisturizing mask, play a quick round of “This Little Piggy,” and administer a relaxing leg-and-foot massage. Then fingernails begin their 30-minute beautification process, during which manicurists pare, polish, and pamper fingernails with care and precision. Bella Le Spa’s friendly staff members perform these ministrations while evincing preternatural levels of hospitality and showing off an impressive collection of prehistoric Chinese finger traps.
Villa Giovana Day Spa's treatments are designed to be gentle on the environment as well as on its clients. During manicures, for instance, hands sink into organic salts, scrubs, and lotions before they're crowned with vegan polish. Airbrush tanning imparts a golden glow without undergoing UV rays' withering glares, and facials cleanse and nourish to create beauty from healthy skin. Soy-based hair removers keep follicles clear, and body scrubs naturally exfoliate.
There are many ways to remove unwanted body hair, but very few methods are actually permanent. Elizabeth Kelly, electrologist and owner of Essential Skin Electrology & Day Spa, understands her clients? frustrations regarding hair that won?t go away and works together with men and women to gently depilate even their most stubborn body areas. That level of attention also extends to her spa?s other focuses, including skincare. In each service, aestheticians use Dermalogica or Pevonia Botanica products and deeply cleanse faces with more than a dozen different facials customized for dryness, signs of aging, or funny faces that eventually got stuck that way. They also whisk away stress with a handful of massages, each of which may be paired with a therapeutic essential oil.
More than two decades of experience teams up with futuristic medical-grade technology to beautify clients at Vasso Skin. In addition to traditional spa services such as facials and waxes, the spa treats skin irregularities such as cholesterol deposits and skin tags with noninvasive Lamprobe treatments. The spa also keeps holistic specialist Janine Gilarde on retainer for Japanese reiki sessions. This form of massage employs light touch to redirect energy, ridding clients of stress and anxiety, much like a trained falcon rids people of their toupees.
