With more than 20 years of medical experience in the U.S., U.K., and India, Dr. Ram Chandra reels in his far-reaching skills to focus exclusively on beauty woes. At Anara MedSpa & Cosmetic Laser Center, named best medical spa by readers of New Jersey Monthly in 2011 and 2012, the certified aesthetic consultant combats unwanted hair, sun damage, and spider veins with advanced laser technology, while his team of aestheticians replenishes skin with traditional facials and chemical peels.
The attentive aestheticians at The Jennifer Day Spa blend Eastern and Western beauty and relaxation techniques to craft custom spa treatments. Clients can grab some "me time" and partake in one of 14 different facials, including supersonic treatments to nourish collagen and Photo Rejuvenation Time Machine treatments that give faces the famously smooth complexion of H.G. Wells. Aestheticians can denude any area with waxing services or snuff out tension through reflexology, which targets pressure points on the feet and hands to restore energy flow throughout the body. The Jennifer Day Spa also bundles its services together into multitreatment spa packages, many of which include the flowing strokes and gentle kneading of Swedish massage.
Elements Massage focuses on proving a true therapeutic experience, fending off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions, treating each client as their most important client. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and finger ballet, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads promote well-being, combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.

The hallway, lined with golden-hued paint, leads to Massage Spa 1’s private treatment rooms with tables set up for individual or couples massages.

The founders of Soleil Tans believe that a trip to the tanning salon should feel like a mini-vacation—a welcome respite from the stress of work, the chaos of exams, or the company of a pet dog who just learned how to play the theme to Three's Company. They've packed their sleek, modern salons with powerful standup booths and tanning beds, outfitted with amenities such as music players, air conditioners, and adjustable air showers. There's even specialty beds designed to target upper bodies, faces, and legs.
The salons are staffed by sunless tanning specialists boasting extensive training and experience in the art of spray tans. They airbrush skin with a UV-free Norvell formula, customizing applications to accommodate varying skin types and desired looks. The staffers can also equip clients with professional skincare products that help moisturize skin, as well as teeth-whitening solutions that work to brighten smiles during UV-tanning sessions.
