A haven that fuses the tranquility of a day spa with the results-oriented procedures of a medical office, SpaMedica executes age-defying cosmetic, facial, and body treatments. A staff of seasoned medical aestheticians bolsters exteriors through services that range from Dysport injections and microdermabrasion to cellulite-banishing Endermologie treatments, many harnessing the nourishing ingredients of SkinMedica and NeoStrata skincare products. Beige walls dotted with matching candles warmly welcome patrons to the pampering sanctuary, inviting them to drink in the aroma of fresh blooms in a cozy waiting area bordered by a plush blue couch. Natural light filters through drapes onto comfy treatment beds set inside secluded rooms as peaceful and discreet as a private island ruled by sentient olive trees.
Licensed aesthetician and acne specialist Nikolett Ivanyi focuses her skills on curbing one of life’s frustrations: acne. Nikolett empathizes with those afflicted with the condition, for she suffered from breakouts in her 20s and spent hundreds of dollars on products and doctors who fruitlessly tried to help her. She finally took the reins and solved her own skin problems after becoming a certified acne specialist, and she now works to help others achieve the same results.
Nikolett helps clients ranging from kids to adults understand why their skin is misbehaving. She outlines a personalized Acne Free Skin program to clear up blemishes, which includes avoiding certain foods or cosmetics, and transforming their skin with facials and peels. Her programs are designed for those who are serious about getting their acne under control and diminishing it for good.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of related industries—particularly massage therapy, where he observed especially rapid growth. As the spa industry continued to expand, he noticed that hardly any nationally recognized brands resulted from that growth. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to fill that niche with a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa. Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 12 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Goddess Nail Spa's nail techs wield OPI lacquers, ibd gels, and LCN nail toppers, which are made from a gel-like, light-cured resin that does not discolor natural nails. Nearby, massage therapists dole out Swedish, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy massages while using Spa Organics lotions that are infused with natural ingredients such as raw emotion. The beauty haven also boasts a private treatment room dedicated to waxing, and leather pedicure thrones that are regularly spit-shined with hospital-grade disinfectants.
Skin Basically's licensed aesthetician, Marina Bratshpis, pampers a clientele that has included both royalty and celebrities.

With experience behind her in both skincare and nursing, she welcomes clients for relaxing and rejuvenating epidermis-focused treatments. Marina performs various facial treatments, drawing upon exotic ingredients such as Avène water from the Cevennes Mountains, flaxseed powder, and flakes of children's drawings.
When children are sick, their parents will do anything to heal them. That’s why, when her teenage daughter developed fibromyalgia, Sorina Durante decided to go back to school to find ways to improve her daughter's health. She attended 10 different programs across England, Canada, and the United States to learn the latest in laser therapy and relaxation techniques, which not only helped her relieve her daughter's pains but also led her to open Energy Balance Laser Therapy & Massage. There, Durante shares with her clients her expertise in red-light therapy, therapeutic massage, and Dr. Kaufman's pain-neutralization technique, the latter of which relieves chronic and acute pain using a light touch. Durante also offers anti-aging facials that use lasers to firm and clear the skin, as well as stress-relieving alternative therapies such as reiki and CranioSacral.
