With advanced technology and the leadership of medical director Dr. Laura Kasper, the licensed experts at Medical Aesthetic Center help people feel more beautiful from head to toe. Their VelaShape system's combination of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light, and mechanical massage targets cellulite, whereas their Zerona laser lipolysis contours bodies by liquefying fat cells. To remove unwanted hair and spider veins, or to reenact favorite scenes from Star Wars, technicians employ laser technology customized to each client's hair color and skin type. Aesthetics gurus can also combat fine lines and other signs of aging with cosmetic injectables and exfoliating chemical peels.
Pelle Day Spa's skin-savvy staff caters to cranky epidermises with an array of rejuvenating and refreshing facial treatments. During the 24-karat-gold facial mask, expert aestheticians channel the power of King Midas, mixing gold powder and silk extract to form a collagen mask while accidentally transforming their clothes into MC Hammer costumes. The one-hour treatment adds hydration, helping create springy skin with the aid of gold's age-defying properties. Before or after their indulgent spa interlude, bodies can bask by the coziness of the sitting room's fireplace, lounging with tea, finger sandwiches, and a jolly chorus of "Kumbaya."
At Vineland Community Acupuncture, acupuncture treatments are performed in a group setting.

Treatments can potentially assuage conditions such as headaches, allergies, stress, pain, and depression.
Alliance For Wellness's team of licensed massage therapists alleviates stress with holistic massage and wellness treatments in an elegant treatment center. Upon entering the restored Victorian home turned relaxation hub, guests are led to spacious treatment rooms outfitted with heated and padded treatment tables, also useful for catnapping or incubating valuable dragon eggs. Clients get a choice from more than 10 massage modalities, including deep tissue, aromatherapy, and raindrop, which incorporates nine essential oils to revivify grey matter and balance discombobulated bodies.
An expert at helping people look their best, Maryanne Giannini has worked in the beauty industry for more than 35 years. When she opened Dazzlz Spa Salon in 1991, Giannini assembled a staff that shared her passion, talents, and telekinetic control over hair dryers. She eventually hired more than 10 stylists and nail technicians, many of whom have decades of experience in areas such as hair color, makeup application, and mani-pedis. Amid the salon’s dark-brown and red walls, this professional staff works with its clients—men, women, and children—to sculpt haircuts that complement hair types and lifestyles. When not working at salon chairs, the staff members escort clients into private treatment rooms where they massage muscles and enclose bodies in shoulder-to-toe wraps.
