Suvara's award-winning airbrush experts gild their guests with a UV-free glow. Each sunless-specialist has completed a rigorous certification program, and will work with their clients to achieve their personal perfect pigmentation. Suvara's exclusive tanning blend contains health-boosting ingredients such as vitamins A and C to improve skin texture and peaceably fight the signs of aging, and hyaluronic acid to lock in notoriously flighty moisture. This hand-sprayed, natural and organic mist coats the body in less than 45 minutes, with customizable tonal results ranging from blissful butterscotch to buccaneer-baiting gold. Your new streak-free hue darkens over the next eight hours, and lasts around one week without special care, or longer with routine moisturizing and daily massages from King Midas.
A Cornell graduate and certified member of the American Board of Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Debra Hoffman specializes in age-defying treatments. At New York Aesthetic Skin Center, her primary goal is to work with clients to coax out the youngest, most flattering version of themselves. All of this without surgery?Dr. Hoffman uses injectables, peels, and Pellev? treatments to help her clients maintain a youthful appearance.
Pellev? is one of the marquee services here?a new non-invasive technique approved by the FDA to tighten and firm the skin, thereby reducing the sagging features that often come with age. Like all of Dr. Hoffman's procedures, Pellev? is non-surgical and requires no recovery time. Botox is another specialty. As a Botox specialist, Dr. Hoffman takes a precise, deliberate approach to the injectable by diluting her Botox to a 1:1 concentration rather than watering it down with saline. This means it's potent enough to iron out wrinkles where patients don't want them: namely, on the forehead, around the eyes, and that place between the brows that furrows during confusing plot twists.
The savvy team at Epiphany Day Spa dispels stress and unprettiness with a hefty roster of hair services, skincare and bodycare treatments, and spa packages.

Out on the salon floor, stylists revive lackluster manes with braids, weaves, and coloring services, while intimate massage rooms create a welcoming and warm environment for clients to kick up their feet and de-stress during 60-minute sessions.
The candlelit crevices of the spa further encourage guests to relax, nibble on complimentary cheese and crackers, and sip soothing cups of tea or coffee as they retreat to the waiting lounge to enjoy a moment of peace or attempt to recite the Declaration of Independence in pig Latin. Those in search of a domestic skincare regime can peruse Epiphany?s stock of moisturizers, eye creams, and masks from the Your Name Cosmetics and CosMedical Skin Care lines.
