At Healing Touch Medical, board-certified internal-medicine physician Dr. Birinder J. Kaur and her trained staff revamp appearances through nonsurgical services and FDA-approved treatments. An excess of pinchable inches will be assessed during a complimentary consultation to ensure clients are worthy candidates before slimming one major bodily area with the Zerona system. The laser gently penetrates the outer membrane of fat-hoarding cells, drawing out meddlesome blubber as effortlessly as a Vegas crooner draws out an encore. The six 40-minute treatments—which must be completed within two weeks—involve no anesthesia or downtime and let patients continue on their regular weight-loss program.
Many twins grow up sharing similar interests: they might listen to the same music, favor the same foods, or blink at exactly the same time. Jamie and Jenn love to cut and style hair. In high school, they trained together under the Paul Mitchell curriculum, and then launched their careers immediately after graduation?testing their skills in the salons of Los Angeles and New York. Today, they still work together as the notoriously lively co-owners of Moxie Blow Dry Bar. Both are certified in La Bella hair and eyelash extensions. Jenn is a Wella-certified colorist, while Jamie is a recognized Motives makeup foundation specialist. Together, they lead a team of experienced stylists and colorists.
Surrounded by cream-colored interiors accented with earth-toned furniture and wood-framed mirrors, stylists trim hair with custom cuts and transform heads into sassy sculptures with Marilyn Monroe?style curlers or Statue of Liberty?style bronze crowns. For many of these services, they use the salon's house brand of moisturizing and conditioning haircare products. And yet Moxie Blow Dry Bar's aestheticians don't limit their services to hair: they also bronze clients' skin with organic airbrush tanning and perform custom makeup applications using Motives products.
A customer reclines in an old-fashioned leather and wooden barber chair with his feet propped up on a plush pedestal as owner Adam Ramos indulges his face with a straight-razor shave. It's a vocation Adam has learned to appreciate after being raised by a long line of barbers and stylists. After partnering with one of his scissors-handed mentors, Connie, the two set up a shop to replicate the sophistication and gentility of early 20th-century barbershops.
Dark, hardwood floors, an old metal cash register, and large wood cabinets fill the retro-chic space with a sense of nostalgia. The shop strives to combine old-world charm with modern techniques and services. At the end of the day, Virile Barber & Shop is a comfortable place where men can get a haircut, shave, or manicure among the rich scents of wood and leather-bound mustaches.
An oasis of pampering and relaxation, Exclusive Day Spa offers a wide array of massage modalities, a bevy of aesthetic services, and emotional coaching.

Their laser skin treatments target fine lines, acne, and rosacea, and laser hair removal and waxing banish unwanted stubble, helping patrons earn the coveted nickname "Smooth Operator."
Micropigmentation artist Elizabeth Veloz improves upon nature with permanent-makeup applications. An experienced painter, Veloz approaches each face as if it were a fresh canvas, enhancing eyelids and brows with flattering lines and shading that don’t require constant reapplication or pep talks. She also can reduce the signs of surgery with procedures such as scar camouflage. When she isn't inking and restoring visages, Veloz tints lashes and stimulates collagen production with Dermapen treatments.
Nelund Minton has been beautifying the community for more than 20 years. Owner Iain Foster, hailing from the Netherlands, took over in 2009 and staffed the salon with stylists from Europe and Manhattan who adhere to advanced techniques and modern trends. After offering guests complimentary coffee, tea, and bagels, they show them to the styling chairs and begin reinventing their clients' looks with haircuts, highlights, and Japanese straightening treatments that can add healthy luster without the hair resorting to braiding itself.
