The aestheticians at Beauty Affairs Salon sculpt shapely brows with the use of a simple cotton strand during efficient threading sessions. An alternative to waxing, tweezing, or hiring a nimble-clawed lobster, threading uproots unwanted follicles from men's and women's over-eye canopies with exacting precision in about five to 10 minutes. This effective Middle Eastern depilatory technique produces results that can last up to four weeks, allowing for nearly a month of artful frowns, surprised looks, and raising single brows to convey that a rainstorm is approaching.
The bronzing team at Sharper Image Tanning helps to cultivate sun-kissed skin with custom tans. Those whose flat-screen TVs fail to create quality at-home tans can imbue their epidermises with added glow during the sunless, UV-free session. After friendly staff members escort tan-seekers to private rooms, customers stand and splay arms while a bottled solution evenly coats the body, sweeping from side to side until it reaches the desired level of darkness.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Although The Goddess Spa resides inside Grand Central Hair Salon, its staff moves beyond coifs to address a whole different spectrum of cosmetic concerns. The aestheticians help rejuvenate skin using everything from ultrasound therapy to specialized anti-aging serums. These treatments aim to conceal imperfections typically caused by acne scars, dead skin cells, and chain-mail pillowcases. Peels gently resurface the topmost epidermal layers without abrasive acids, and the body wraps' seaweed-based herbal gel leaves skin feeling soft and nourished.
Suvara's award-winning airbrush experts gild their guests with a UV-free glow. Each sunless-specialist has completed a rigorous certification program, and will work with their clients to achieve their personal perfect pigmentation. Suvara's exclusive tanning blend contains health-boosting ingredients such as vitamins A and C to improve skin texture and peaceably fight the signs of aging, and hyaluronic acid to lock in notoriously flighty moisture. This hand-sprayed, natural and organic mist coats the body in less than 45 minutes, with customizable tonal results ranging from blissful butterscotch to buccaneer-baiting gold. Your new streak-free hue darkens over the next eight hours, and lasts around one week without special care, or longer with routine moisturizing and daily massages from King Midas.
Dr. Joyce Guirand and the team at Guirand Medical Care believe that “healthy habits start early,” which is why they offer primary care and aesthetic medicine for patients of all ages. They specialize in primary care that ranges from physical exams and acute injuries to chronic medical conditions and weight-loss assistance. Dr. Guirand also performs aesthetic medicine, such as chemical peels, body treatments, facials, waxing, and Botox.
Satori Laser Hair Removal's technology arsenal is a treasure trove of FDA-approved beauty treatments. There are the Candela lasers—the GentleYag, GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro—that harness a variety of wavelengths and power levels to erase unwanted hair from nearly any skin type. There's also the VelaShape II, designed to zap fat and contour the body, and the eTwo infrared and radio-frequency system and DiamondTome microdermabrasion machine that help stave off the signs of aging. The spa's specialists call on expert training and viewings of lots of science-fiction movies to wield these devices in a range of noninvasive regimens.
When they’re not bettering clients with laser-based services, the staff at Satori Laser Hair Removal is improving the world at large. The spa donates 15% of its profits to charities such as the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, and the International Rescue Committee, which helps people rebuild their lives after humanitarian crises.
