At Luminique MedSpa, Dr. Michael A. Fiorillo is double-certified as a general doctor and a plastic surgeon, which gives him a multidisciplinary perspective on his clients' health and aesthetic concerns. The doctor offers plastic surgery, med-spa services, and even a series of wellness programs that help clients achieve the look they want without having to berate all their household mirrors into compliance. The spa's facials and laser skin-tightening treatments help clients feel more confident, remarks a staffer. "That's what we do. That's why we're here: to make everyone feel better about themselves." To spread the sense of well-being all over, clients can also opt for boot-camp classes and 12-week holistic programs for greater fitness and health.
To ensure that all the treatments and services offered at Beauty Victorian Secrets Day Spa are effective, rejuvenating, and worthy of her clients' time and money, Yvonne tests them all on herself first. Inside her inviting day spa, she tests out classic European facials, moisturizing freeze-dried masks, and paraffin-vitamin C treatments. She and her welcoming staff offer solutions to physical woes with their waxing services, specifically their bare-all Brazilian, which leave skin silky smooth without the cuts associated with shaving or the debilitating hand cramps of tweezing.
As a nationally certified and licensed massage therapist with a master's degree in special education, Jolie Schiering knows the power that touch can have to reduce anxiety and show support. Drawing on this experience and more than 1,000 hours of bodywork instruction, Jolie tempers troubled sinews with a variety of massage techniques. Lounging in a private room, clients prepare for Swedish, shiatsu, or hot-stone bodywork as the scented tendrils of aromatherapy oils uncurl through the air. When not calming muscles as a therapist, Jolie uses knowledge gained while acquiring a personal-training license to compete in races such as the San Diego Marathon, and obtained CPR certification from Red Cross.

The attentive staffers at Elizabeth Roche M.D. MedSpa employ noninvasive microdermabrasion treatments to reveal healthy façades in less than an hour. Technicians lather faces with a sudsy cleanser and then sweep a stream of tiny crystals across skin's surface, which leaves clients with a youthful glow and unexpected desire to play hopscotch. The machine's pressure adjusts to suit various skin types, gently removes outermost layers, and stimulates collagen and elastin production. Fresh epidermal cells emerge from beneath dulled, superficial surfaces, boosting facial elasticity to diminish fine lines and minor scars. At the conclusion of each buffing session, aestheticians suction away any loitering cells and crystals with a face-friendly vacuum cleaner.

The crew also consists of several skin specialists, who draw upon their skills to moisturize skin, restore rich tones, and remove unwanted hair.
