The spa, whose name means "my beautiful woman" in Italian, is located inside Aesthetic Surgical Arts and overseen by its medical director, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph C. Camarata. Dr. Camarata's licensed estheticians can rejuvenate facial skin with microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and SkinMedica products. After exfoliating and waxing the epidermis, the staff can fine-tune the details of clients' appearances by performing airbrush tanning and brow and lash tinting. To round out the extensive array of services, makeup artists leverage their expertise to apply beautiful pigments, in addition to giving lessons in how to do it on one's own visage.
The atmosphere in which these services are rendered is elegant and welcoming. Glass tabletops, leather furniture, and curved, earth-toned walls create a spacious lobby, where modern chandeliers illuminate calmly colorful abstract paintings.

Drawing upon her clinical background at a skin-treatment facility, Kenlee’s Skin Shop’s eponymous owner tends to wearied dermises with services that include facials, microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and waxing.

Rather than trust other beauty purveyors for cosmetics that complement her many skin treatments, Kenlee stocks her studio’s shelves with her own mad-scientist creations. KSS Mineral Makeup boasts nine signature shades and three universal powders to help create a smooth, even complexion free of acne blemishes and glued-on clown noses.

Dr. Sajadi, owner and director of Bonus Image Aesthetics, smoothes complexions with carefully administered injections of FDA-approved Botox. With the 20 units of Botox, patients can temporarily free their brows of glabellar lines formed from repetitive frowning and aggressive eyelid clapping. Once Dr. Sajadi infuses foreheads with the prescription medicine, the solution actively blocks nerve impulses to decrease the activity of wrinkle-forming muscles. Frown lines may continue fading away for up to a month after the 30-minute procedure, producing a smoother countenance that can provide patients with up to four months of unquestioned food-ordering from the kids' menu.
