Anthony Capasso, a board-certified doctor of internal medicine, has channeled his more than 15 years of experience treating weight-related ailments into developing medication-free approaches to weight loss at Thin Centers MD. At each location, clients start their medical weight-loss regimens with an initial consultation that uses various health metrics—including medical history and a blood evaluation—to determine which approach fits them best. Dr. Capasso’s diets come tailored to various lifestyles, ranging from those that work for avid cooks to diets for people with hectic schedules. Each of the programs can also be enhanced with the fat-melting technology of an FDA-approved Zerona laser. Weekly follow-up visits with the medical staff help patients track their weight-loss progress, stamp their diet journal with the words “Private—This Means You, Mom,” and make any necessary changes to their program.
India's ayurvedic traditions and modern beauty treatments come together in the hands of Nadia and the other aestheticians at Arch Brows Salon and Spa. Threading removes hair from the face without the heat of wax or molten marshmallows, and henna imbues hair with auburn hues and skin with intricate subcontinental designs. Facials invoke the healing powers of precious metals or fruit essences, and body scrubs exfoliate with sea salt or organic sugar. High-tech techniques star in the microcurrent and LED facial, which stimulates and revitalizes the skin with electricity and a portion of the rainbow.
Beauty experts polish their clients' fingers and toes before touching up their faces with vibrant makeup. Stylists clip, buzz, and sculpt the gentlemanly coifs of guests seated in their styling chairs. With their dashing new looks, these customers would stop traffic—if they were old enough to drive. At Sweet & Sassy, a salon and spa exclusively for children, glamour comes in all sizes. Mini manicures, pedicures, hairstyles, and makeup services give girls their first taste of the pampered life, and boys' haircuts give lads roughhouse-ready looks in styling chairs their own size. Even infants get in on the grooming with the Baby's First Cut package, which includes a hair locket, certificate, and photo keepsake to commemorate the first time their parents saw their ears. The salon also goes beyond simple image enhancements with themed parties, in which hot-pink limos scoop up young partygoers and bring them to the salon to don gowns and tiaras, strut down the runway, or rehearse for a live pop-music performance.
The beauty technicians at Hello Gorgeous groom guests with a comprehensive roster of spa and salon services. Stylists renovate manes with haircuts and coloring, and aestheticians tackle epidermal ailments with tanning, body wraps, and facials that enlist aloe-based formulas that exfoliate and pack in more moisture than a hoarding rain cloud. A resident massage therapist kneads away stress alongside aestheticians who can diminish cellulite and wrinkles. To fully pamper clients, Hello Gorgeous bundles its plentiful services into thoughtful makeover packages that outline fashion and makeup advice and prep patrons for special events, such as proms, weddings, or bouts of competitive wedding-cake demolishing.
A custom shop for all epidermal needs, Shelly's welcomes guests with open bottles of premium products and a team of skilled skinsperts. Begin an afternoon of pampering with the 30-minute luxury back treatment, where aestheticians lightly exfoliate and massage weary skin, allowing it to shine brighter than a freshly polished spotlight. Then the berry-lemon facial offers countenances one hour of rejuvenation and exfoliation with berry flavenoids, which act as antioxidants in the skin, destroying tissue-damaging compounds and roundhouse kicking dead skin cells in the face. Emotion expressers leave feeling fresh and flavorful, glowing with the vitality of a crisp fruit salad.
