Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.

Licensed aesthetician Nicole Lyons opened Seven Layer Skin to treat clients with private, one-on-one sessions to fortify and repair their skin. By appointment only, she restores the epidermis to its youthful vigor with facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and paraffin dips for the face and hands. Her chemical peels harness the power of lactic, glycolic, or salicylic acid to slough away dead skin cells and old Dukakis for President bumper stickers still plastered across foreheads. Nicole also performs specialty services including waxing, ear coning, and eyelash-extension application. The only time she eschews one-on-one attention with her clients is when she plays host to spa parties, during which groups convene to snack on appetizers while lathering their faces in Dermalogica products.
Hope Laser Center’s secret to their fast, painless, and effective med spa treatments is the industry-trusted Cynosure laser. The staff wields this device's hand piece for myriad aesthetic treatments, including laser hair removal, facial treatments, and spider-vein reduction. The noninvasive beams work to beautify bodies with skin-tightening treatments, and transform facial skin with microdermabrasion. This youth-enhancing service can reduce the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles, helping clients work toward becoming the next Gerber baby.
The aesthetic is decidedly minimalist—a few padded leather chairs, a tasteful rug, a potted plant here and there. But the services are as complex as the decor is simple. Most services rely on some type of laser work, from sessions with the i-Lipo fat-reduction system to treatments that remove moles, hair, and spider veins. Unlike at some centers, medical director Dr. Luciano Sztulman often becomes directly involved in these treatments, except for the apple-related services that keep doctors away.
Under the direction of board-certified spa owner and nurse practitioner Gerald F. Dornhecker, the certified laser technicians at Skin Essentials work to smooth skin and eliminate unwanted hair. The technicians also employ Elos Plus advanced laser systems to treat redness, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. Their microdermabrasion and chemical-peel facials firm and clarify visages by lifting away dead skin cells and allowing lower layers to absorb nourishment and all compliments. During massage sessions, therapists utilize Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage to help alleviate tension.
