Amy Grossman got her start designing clothing. But when she was battling cystic acne, she realized that solutions for beauty need to be more personal. She's kept that attitude at The Skin and Lash Lady, talking with patrons at length before each eyelash and skin treatment. She also keeps each customer's health in mind while applying the lashes, selecting a length that won't damage the existing lash. The shop's glue also takes only four hours to cure fully, meaning that lashes are ready for anything quickly. During the whole process, Amy draws on experience as a trainer for JB lashes and a member of the Lashology Council of America.

The Vitalize, Illuminize, and SkinCeuticals Gel peels ($75–$150) evict dead skin cells to make room for kitten-soft skin, and lash ($30) and brow tinting ($25) gives peepers pizzazz.

Date nights or daytime getaways become all the more memorable when couples head to HandsonSpa. Here, licensed aestheticians and therapists treat pairs to chilled flutes of champagne and chocolate truffles before they undergo side-by-side massages and facials. The rest of their services—including manicures and pedicures—are just as relaxing and can be paired with a light lunch for a complete spa day, fulfilling the staff's mission to make their clients' lives more peaceful.
Center for Wellness mixes chiropractic strategies with massage therapy and cold-laser therapy to create a holistic approach to treating back and body pain. Beams of low-intensity laser light help accelerate the healing of damaged tissue, and massage therapists rehabilitate ragged muscles with five different massage styles. Chiropractors offer drop-table and Thompson techniques for solving subluxations, and they can augment their treatments with detailed nutrition advice.
The team at Advanced Skin Care & More soothes body and mind with a synergy of ancient techniques and modern technology. Aestheticians with medical or paramedical training precede every facial with a skin analysis and black-light screening, which can detect skin conditions or milk mustaches. After determining the client's unique skincare needs, an aesthetician cleanses and exfoliates with natural and organic products. Some treatments combat signs of aging with infrared or intense pulsed light, microcurrents, and ultrasound. Aside from facials, the day spa offers massage modalities that range from deep tissue to champissage, an Ayurvedic form of head massage that stimulates the scalp and upper body to increase circulation and the ability to wiggle each ear independently.
