Ofra Amy Grinbaum, founder of New York Laser Aesthetics, has many years of experience with aesthetics. As a New York State–certified aesthetician, she leads a team of fellow licensed technicians who share her passions. Together, they wield such technology as an Epicare aesthetic laser, a Zerona cellulite-reduction machine, and a Biologique Recherche facial-sculpting machine designed to firm and tone complexions.
Because some of these procedures can irritate the skin, an FDA-approved Zimmer cooling system is kept on-hand to soothe treated areas with a stream of chilled air similar to one emitted by a whistling snowman. Grinbaum also has years of experience with laser techniques for toenail care, including the use of an FDA-approved laser for toenail fungus treatments.
Co-owners Anthony DeFranco and René Spagnolo employ years of experience styling international fashion shows and magazine photo shoots to guide their team of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Always apprised of the latest styles and declarations from the president's hair czar, stylists keep clients' preferences in mind while creating new 'dos with Nolla hair products. Their aesthetician brethren further gussy up physiques with cleansing facials, waxing and electrolysis services, mani-pedis, and professional makeup applications. Inside either of DeFranco Spagnolo's sleek salons, hardwood floors and minimalist décor instill a haute elegance found only on the runways of Paris and LaGuardia.
Board-certified aesthetician Robin Tritto calls upon a quarter-century of experience to unclog pores and correct problematic skin conditions with clinical and alternative remedies. Robin refers to herself as a “skincare designer”—an interesting description, but one that rings true in the way she patches together facials and peels to suit various skin types and strongly advises against argyle tattoos. When she’s not focused on polishing faces with her custom-mixed foundations, Robin helms lasers that eradicate unwanted hair and neutralize sun spots. Her cache of advanced cosmetic products and hard-to-find blends allows clients to extend the results of their treatments at home.
When not in her office at Great Neck Medical Spa, board-certified physician Deborah Marciano is likely attending a medical conference, seminar, or workshop. Her commitment to continuing education embodies her simple goal: to help her clients look and feel better. To this end, the doctor specializes in both surgical and noninvasive treatments for slimming silhouettes, removing hair, and rejuvenating skin. Depending on her clients' aesthetic objectives, she might use the SmartLipo Triplex system to oust unwanted fat or the Elite MPX to permanently remove unwanted hairs.
With almost two decades of hairstyling experience under her belt, owner Faina helms Fa-El Salon, where she and her skilled staff design hair according to current fashions and their clients’ whims. The stylists pride themselves on matching hairstyles to individual tastes and body types, sticking to Faina’s philosophy that a successful haircut must reflect—in ways loud or subtle—its wearer’s personality. While stylists pace around salon chairs in search of choppable cowlicks, aestheticians tend to other body parts with exfoliating facials, mani-pedis, and waxing treatments that remove nascent moustaches and signs of lycanthropy.
Aura Laser & Skin Rejuvenation Center's relaxing spa environment allows bodies and minds to freely revel in a range of age-defying treatments. Staff members address individual needs as they turn back face clocks with skin-tightening treatments or chemical peels, or release hamstring tension with hand-shaped violin bows during a soothing massage.
