Dr. Joseph B. Neiman, a board-certified dermatologist with more than 30 years of experience to his credit, draws on training from New York University, the University of Tennessee, and Brown to treat the entire body. His background also includes hair restoration and nailcare. Together with a pair of trained nurse practitioners, he works over intense-pulsed-light units, hair-removal lasers, and other pieces of modern technology. In treatment rooms, the team also draws upon an arsenal of Botox, Radiesse, and other products to help patrons meet beauty goals without always having to give a fairy godmother rides to the airport.
Before Shailina Halani opened Sense of Beauty Spa, she diligently studied cosmetology while drawing on her knowledge of both Eastern and Western beauty rituals. Today, she leads a team of stylists that revamps visages with products by Paul Mitchell, en Vogue, Arbonne, and Shahnaz Herbals. When staffers aren't practicing their craft, they ensure client comfort with complimentary beverages, wireless Internet, and childhood teddy bears.

Avantika Spa acts as a refuge from everyday life in more ways than one. Of course, its luxurious treatments help instill inner peace while banishing the effects of environment and stress. But beyond that, those treatments are performed exclusively by women, leading to an intimate, freeing atmosphere. Within the spa, hot-stone massages use warmth to soothe muscular tension, calm the nerves, and boost energy, and custom Dermalogica facials use face mapping to address fine lines, sun damage, acne, and political unrest zone by zone. The wide variety of services available contributes to an equally extensive list of spa packages, which groups can reserve with extras such as champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Other special-occasion services include bridal makeup, which artists can prep for with a trial run before the big day.
At Concepts Salon & Spa, clients beautify on their own terms, choosing treatments from a menu of salon and spa services or building their own spa package. Styling services remove dead ends or inundate strands with moisturizing treatments from Aveda, Kérastase, or Goldwell. And aesthetic services such as waxing, facials, and eyelash extensions grace exteriors with the subtle accents. Concepts Salon & Spa's aesthetic sessions typically span roughly an hour, during which the aestheticians wield professional products designed to leave skin feeling more refreshed than a hibernating bear that just woke up under a coconut tree.
