Owner and aesthetician Tina Sinopoli combines 10 years of skincare expertise and four years of health-and-wellness coaching into every personalized spa procedure performed at Body Beautique. Appointments begin with a detailed consultation, during which Tina evaluates the patient’s epidermal condition and needs before administering the most appropriate skin or body treatment using Previse skincare products. Such services include 30-minute resurfacing peels, wherein alpha hydroxy acid aims to improve fine lines and scarring; and 30-minute enzyme peels, a fruit-based exfoliation treatment that smoothes skin more effectively than rubbing up against a fruit-bowl still life painted on sandpaper. Waxing sessions also soften skin by ridding bodies of unwanted hair.
Along with enriching skin, Tina draws upon her studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to offer clients health-coaching services. By investigating each client’s relationship with food and exercise, Tina is able to determine the promptest, healthiest way to achieve and maintain their ideal weight. She also attempts to help them understand and reduce their cravings, and incorporate new, healthier foods into their diets.
