The Spa 25’s resident laser technician, Cheryl Sonnanburg, devotes herself exclusively to keeping her clientele’s skin permanently smooth. Her laser hair-removal treatments target follicles anywhere on the body, destroying hair at its root to prevent regrowth.
Light becomes powerful at Lifetime Laser. Within the med spa's relaxing confines, technicians use lasers to remove hair, smooth skin, and address various other skin issues. They also administer cosmetic fillers like Botox, apply chemical peels, and treat clients with special [packages((http://gr.pn/1aas6v3) designed to address acne or the signs of age.
The licensed massage therapists and aesthetic professionals at Relaxation And Transformation Spa consider themselves artists. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience, they use their skills and high-tech equipment to help clients look better and feel more comfortable in their skin. Available at three locations, the spa's services include massages, facials, and cavi-lipo treatments designed to smooth away cellulite by subjecting it to ultrasound energy and a stern talking-to.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
"Owned by a sweet local woman, the atmosphere created in Ri Jon is a very friendly one," according to the Deer Park-North Babylon Patch. The friendly atmosphere in the salon today is the same one that has been attracting clients—women, men, and children—for more than 40 years. Inside, the salon's plants, warm colors, and pictures of the family humidifier create a homey, inviting ambiance. Affable stylists add to that warm atmosphere as they cut, color, and highlight hairdos and perform makeup applications for women and shaving services for men. The salon also carries an extensive selection of haircare and body-care products including Rusk, Kenra, Moroccanoil, and Paul Mitchell.

Pro Tip: Relax. You will love your new makeup.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I had my permanent makeup done 15 years ago, and it is the most liberating thing I have ever done for myself. In less than five minutes, I can be made up and out the door. Never again will I run to the supermarket without makeup, and meet the one person I least want to see when I don't look my best. I've loved my permanent makeup every day since it was applied, and I know my clients will be thrilled with the time they save every day.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Permanent makeup should be a great attractive daytime look, not an overdone look that would be appropriate for evening. You can always dress up your permanent makeup, if you choose to, when you are going out for a special evening.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
When you decide to have permanent makeup applied, choose a person that has superior training, experience, expertise, and lots of pictures of her work.
