Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened under the moniker of Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to seven locations. Today, the spa’s experts form a team of licensed skincare professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques. Dr. Tara Margarella and Dr. Herb Kollinger are skilled in advanced injection techniques and work alongside nurse Cheryl Gillis to help perfect the latest aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, using only US FDA approved products.
Dr. Donald Ruf is the core of Slender SpaMed, which specializes in cosmetic and weight-loss procedures. They employ the latest technology, including a Syneron laser hair-removal system and the Arasys Perfector, designed to trim waistlines without exercise or ice-cube diets.
Slender SpaMed's aestheticians perform traditional spa treatments, including hydrating facials, therapeutic massages, and slimming body wraps. Custom weight-loss programs supplement nutritional counseling and personal-training sessions with procedures such as vitamin injections.
The ambiance at The Body Wax strikes a sultry chord with a black leather couch in the waiting area and deep-orange walls throughout the hallways. The vibe allows clients to feel safe and comfortable within the private treatment studios, each of which features a cushioned, adjustable bed. Warm wax lifts unwanted hair while weakening the bulbs, leaving skin smooth for two–three weeks and causing future growth to be finer and thereby easier to remove. As a hair-removal method, waxing lasts longer than shaving, doesn't cause the painful rashes of depilatory lotions, and sidesteps the unbearable hair stench of fire.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
When I install mink eyelash extensions, I apply each strand one-by-one to each individual lash. A full set can take 90–120 minutes depending on the desired look and thickness. Though extensions can last 4–6 weeks, I recommend a touch-up every 3–4 weeks to maintain the desired look. However, at least half of your eyelash extensions must still be attached.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
We are located inside The Body Wax, where we create a spa-like experience with soft music, lavender smells, and running water from a waterfall.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Once you have your eyelash extensions, you won't need to apply mascara. This makes them great for busy woman on the go who want to wake up looking fabulous. These natural-looking eyelash extensions also open up your eyes and give you a youthful appearance.

Ilana offers everything from cuts, coloring, and Brazilian keratin treatments to makeup, threading, and waxing.
