The Makeup Bar Salon may be named for its chair-lined countertops that brim with signature cosmetics, but its staff of stylists and aestheticians brings much more than just makeup artistry to the table. Supervised by Lisa Severino, a makeup artist with more than 20 years of experience, the salon’s many claims to fame include a seaweed facial that was a 2011 Pick by InStyle magazine and a blow-dry bar with a choice of three styling options: tousled, straight, or Louis XIV. Meanwhile, eyebrow specialists flaunt years of over-eye artistry in brow-shaping sessions that both correct past tweezing blunders and ensure flattering contours when brows grow out. Clients can put a bow on their spa and salon services with exclusive cosmetics, whether the salon’s own or the feng-shui-inspired Color Elements line designed by Severino herself.
Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
To more effectively treat a range of skin and hair types, the medically supervised clinicians at Style MedSpa/Laser Hair Removal Center utilize a range of advanced technologies, including long-pulsed Alexandrite, Diode, YAG, and IPL cosmetic laser systems. Although these systems mainly target unwanted stubble, the staff also treats signs of sun damage, fine lines, and spider veins with similar laser therapies. Botox and other dermal fillers are also available to combat aging. Even the teeth-whitening treatments and exfoliating facials rely on cutting-edge equipment from NASA's top-secret spas.
The team at Bella Medspa comprises osteopathic physicians, nurses, laser technicians, and medical aestheticians, all of whom focus their skills on restoring youthful facets to faces. They use DiamondTome microdermabrasion technology to buff away dead skin cells and minimize age spots, and beauty injections to tame wrinkles and plump up features that have lost volume. Different injections, along with IPL treatments, help to reduce signs of aging, whereas flashes of laser light zap unwanted body hair on nearly any area of the anatomy.
A diplomat of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Azani Medical Spa owner Dr. Monica Gavin builds long-lasting relationships with patients who rely on her to restore freshness to their faces and bounce to their step. Dr. Gavin's staff performs turn-back-the-clock treatments that can reduce the appearance of fine lines or acne scars by sloughing off superficial layers of damaged and discolored skin. Take your pick of a chemical peels or a vibradermabrasion—a microdermabrasion alternative in which the abrasive particles are embedded in a plastic paddle that is rubbed against the skin. Since a special small paddle can be used close to the eyes, it can rub out wrinkles that microdermabrasion can't reach, and it may also cause less skin irritation. The spa, located on Emrick Boulevard, is open Tuesday through Saturday.
Odyssey Salon and Spa pampers patrons with friendly, personal care in a relaxing environment. Each member of the spa's staff has been trained in the most advanced techniques of the industry, ensuring a soothing and rejuvenating treatment based on knowledge and skill rather than unpredictable magical incantations. Customers can choose from a number of whisker-wiping waxing options, from the chin ($15) to the toes ($20) to a full bikini or facial wax ($35), helping them effectively shed their winter coats in anticipation of the summer's warm weather, beach trips, and Slip 'N Slide commutes to work. Hair havers can also focus on their head-top topiaries with a complete deep-conditioning treatment ($45). Follicular stress is alleviated with a 10-minute scalp massage complemented by a wash and style, leaving hair free of tangles, angst, and lost car keys.
