Desiree Chmura was a featured aesthetician at the 2010 Aesthetic Everything Oscar Gifting Suite, and, as she pampered famous pores before the Academy Awards, she realized she wanted to open up her own med spa. She's trained in a sweeping array of medical-grade skincare and cosmetic disciplines and has advised listeners on Cosmo's XM radio show on how to reduce inches with a seaweed wrap and how to ensnare a crush with a pair of tweezers.
To create her spa, Desiree corralled a staff of nurses and aestheticians. With treatments that range from deep-cleansing facials and ear candling to dermal fillers and photofacials, guests of all beautification goals can find a service right for them.
Serving more than 5,000 clients since 2007, Dr. Ismail Ozcan and the rest of the experienced staff at Oz Medi-Spa Center wield a laser to combat acne, wrinkles, sun spots, pregnancy masks, and unsightly body hair. Male and female technicians are available to operate the device, which emits pulsating beams of light that penetrate the layers of skin to tend to issues. Dr. Ozcan also performs laser-free fixers, including Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero injections, as well as microdermabrasion and varicose vein treatments. The center is open six days a week with flexible appointment times.
The licensed epidermis professionals at The Spa 4 Skin challenge blemishes, wrinkles, and unwanted hair with a full array of laser systems, technology-based therapies, and custom facials. They perform skincare therapies such as clay masks, microdermabrasion, and DermaMax and DiamondTome resurfacing treatments, which rejuvenate visages and can slough off the tomato residue caked on from standup performances. Besides face-focused treatments, the professionals cater to bodies with the soothing, nutrient-rich misting of DermaLife spa jet and Swedish or deep-tissue massage. In addition, unwanted follicles are disabled during laser hair removal.
At Skincare By Gina, licensed aesthetician Gina knows that everyone has different skin. That's why she always starts her appointments with a thorough skin analysis. She customizes her array of anti-aging treatments, such as microdermabrasion, whitening facials, and glycolic peels, to suit each client's skin. In addition to turning back beauty clocks, she also elongates lashes with extensions and removes unwanted hair with waxing treatments.
At Visage Skincare Spa and Cosmetic Laser Center, a highly trained staff cultivates beauty and wellness with relaxation services and anti-aging treatments. Part med spa and part day spa, the facility teems with massage therapists who knead away muscle tension, paramedical aestheticians who tighten skin with Thermage treatments, and board-certified nurse practitioners who inject FDA-approved wrinkle smoothers such as Botox and Juvéderm. More high-tech than a horse-drawn spaceship, a Visia imaging system guides complexion analyses, measuring sun damage and hyperpigmentation to help technicians build custom skincare plans. The spa also doubles as a party destination, where revelers can indulge in champagne and hors d’oeuvres between facials and massages.
Dianne Ciprano knows the benefits of a good education. The skin specialist trained at both the Gloria Francis Institute of Beauty and the New York Institute of Beauty, perfecting the skills that she now uses every day at When Style Counts. When she isn’t cleansing pores or softening skin with seven types of facials, Dianne continues to brush up on the latest spa techniques through continuing education courses at Dermal Institute in NYC. One thing she has learned is not to skimp on products. That’s why she reaches for professional Repechage serums as she tailors her treatments to soothe sensitive skin or cover up exposed circuitry.
