With a kaleidoscope of hues at the ready, Star Nail & Spa’s technicians paint the rainbow onto clients’ nails. Technicians use regular or Shellac polish, which protects nails from chips and scratches when clients are washing the dishes or petting their pet cacti. Manicures and pedicures include such pampering amenities as a foot soak, moisturizer, and nail buffing.
Spalishus' aestheticians pride themselves on placing their customers' comfort and happiness above all else. To this end, they offer services ranging from facials and waxing to electrolysis and laser treatments that speak to that desire by producing dramatic results with little to no downtime or invasive procedures. Their facials use both organic serums and chemical compounds to imbue the skin with healthy nutrients and battle tarnished top layers, while their laser hair removal semi-permanently removes unwanted hair from across the body.
Armed with experience and medical-grade equipment, the technicians at A Bare Beautiful You focus on getting rid of excess hair. They can use the intense, pulsing beams of the GentleLase machine to get rid of stubble from many areas. Electrolysis, meanwhile, uses electrical currents to help remove hair at the root. This process sparks chemical changes that can effectively destroy unwanted hair, or at least make it rethink its motives. The med-spa also can perform spray tanning, ear piercing, permanent makeup, and eyebrow shaping.
Backed by nearly three decades of practice in the local community, board-certified physician Michael Michell helms Somers Cosmetic & Laser Center's team of aestheticians and cosmetic specialists. Dr. Mitchell’s crew performs a comprehensive arsenal of medically inspired aesthetic services, including spider-vein treatments and laser hair removal. The doctor himself administers beauty injections such as Botox and Juvéderm and summons his extensive medical know-how to develop powerful facials that erase blemishes, flush dirt from pores, and wipe cheeks clean of Mom’s embarrassing lipstick marks.
Each day when she cuts and styles hair, Sandra LaSpina follows in the footsteps of her mother, Susan, who opened LaSpina Renewed Image Salon in 1972. Since then, Sandra has updated the menu of traditional cut and color services with keratin smoothing treatments, a full line of Paul Mitchell products, and organic products from Eufora. Sandra also began hosting holistic-health lectures at the salon with Native American Earth Medicine practitioners, acupuncturists, and doctors as speakers.
LaSpina Renewed Image Salon sharpened its focus on health concerns when it earned bona fides as an American Cancer Society–certified Look Good…Feel Better salon. The salon carries wigs from Follea, as well as custom-made wigs. In 2010, it was even featured in Short Hair magazine for its variety of services, including their hair-replacement services.
Dr. Ingeborg Dziedzic and her husband, Dr. John Dziedzic, both studied at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Ingeborg received her medical degree from the school, and John completed his fellowship in neuropathology there after receiving his PhD in biochemistry at Fordham University. Both continue to practice the specialties that launched their medical careers—ophthalmology and anesthesiology respectively—though they've expanded their practice to encompass new territories of treatment and more wall space for framed diplomas.
Patients seek out the knowledgeable couple for everything from laser vision correction to cosmetic procedures such as Botox or Radiesse, and spa services such as microdermabrasion. The Dziedzics also stock a wide variety of natural supplements to holistically improve health, and guide patients through weight-loss programs supplemented by HCG, and can test for specific food allergies with ALCAT blood testing to pinpoint causes of fatigue, skin reactions, or milk-related night terrors.
