Treatment at Advanced Laser & Medical Spa of Rye usually begins with a consultation with a medical aesthetician with supervision from board-certified medical director, Dr. Micheline Giovani. Being onsite allows her to oversee the med spa?s staff and array of services, which include Botox injections, microdermabrasions, non-invasive facelift Ultherapy, and chemical peels. More technologically advanced cosmetic techniques include acoustic-wave therapy for thickening collagen in cellulite-prone areas and laser therapy for removing skin blemishes and body hair.
X-S Hair Salon's welcoming, expert stylists beautify hair and enhance shine and texture with a variety of smoothing and deep-conditioning treatments. The Moroccanoil deep-conditioning treatment repairs ends and hydrates hair in 60?90 minutes, restoring shine and bounce to locks grown as rough and dehydrated as a cactus running an ultra-marathon. The salon?s friendly stylists shampoo and condition hair with products imbued with the luster-restoring oil followed by a hair mask. Clients? freshly oiled hair then sits under a soothing steamer for 20 minutes before finally receiving a cooling rinse and blow-dry to reveal newly shimmery strands.
At GeMargot Salon, nail buffs revitalize forlorn hands and feet with the latest techniques and polish colors. Throughout the roughly 90-minute session, nails are filed, buffed, and shaped back to their old hexagonal selves, as the aesthetician's trained hands soothe weary mitts and human hooves with an ache-relieving massage. Shellac hues and varnish are then applied to add a splash of color to the finger helmets, as a beam of UV light cures the specially formulated nail paint, rendering it chip-, smudge-, and spackle-free for up to two weeks. Guests can choose a standard shade from the Shellac line, including
new hues such as Hot Pop Pink or Wildfire, or opt to highlight talon tips with a french-style frescoing. Ensuring feet don't grow jealous and walk out on their owners, peds are given their own polishing with a standard nail enamel, forgoing the chip-less formula due to their propensity for extremely gentle piano playing.
Certified laser professional Marie Giacovas draws on more than a decade of experience with Candela technology to permanently reduce unwanted hair at Westchester Laser Associates. She and her laser-certified partner, Joanne Santorelli, target follicles with Candela's FDA-approved GentleLase system, creating a sensation akin to the rubber-band snaps commonly used in armed thumb wars. Treatments take permanent effect after four to eight sessions, although hair's coarseness and thickness may begin to dwindle after fewer sessions.
Alternatively, the two-person team can contour physiques with as few as four FDA-approved VelaShape treatments, which reduce the circumference of problem areas while smoothing away cellulite. The treatment barrages the targeted body part with radio frequencies and infrared light while ironing out dimples with a vacuum and mechanical massage.
Amid their salon?s abundant lights and expansive mirrors, the stylists at Hair Creations rejuvenate hairstyles and beautify bodies. Joico products accentuate cuts, styles, colorings, and other hair treatments; waxing services eliminate unwanted fuzz on all areas of the body; and natural-looking gel nails and long-lasting Shellac polish help nails regain their splendor after long nights spent clawing into bank vaults. Recently, the talented staff of Hair and Beyond has joined the Hair Creations team, where they'll be able to offer more of their friendly professional services and expanded hours.
Berthas European Spa is a warm, inviting oasis filled with skilled aestheticians who revitalize bodies with a variety of spa services. During the 75-minute foot-pampering session, guests settle into a sleek, modern pedicure station accented with lush pillows. A skilled technician treats tough feet to a soothing soak before filing unruly nails into shape and tending to clamorous cuticles. Nail specialists then give soles a sea-salt scrub with chocolate, pomegranate, or mint aromas, which have been proven to be the most effective scents for tempting away unwanted debris and dermaflaws. Finally, a foot-and-leg massage soothes achy muscles, a moisturizing foot mask hydrates thirsty feet, and nails get a fresh coat of paint. The 45-minute chocolate spa manicure closely mimics the pedicure procedure, rounding out distressed fingers and nails while moisturizing the hands that feed you with a cocoa-based phalange mask.
