Founded in 1987, Ricciolo Salon & Day Spa's 4,000-square-foot studio hosts a team of stylists and technicians whose beauty services revitalize hair and skin. Men and women sink into comfortable styling stations where expert mane-tamers shape distinctive looks with precise cuts, color, and conditioning treatments. In cozy private rooms, licensed aestheticians and massage therapists alleviate the stress that builds up in muscles used too often to lift pianos or lazy pianists, using deep-tissue and hot-stone massages. Ricciolo's resident doctor, Dr. Jen Chow, provides nonsurgical treatments such as Botox, Latisse, and Juv?derm to client to smooth out facial creases.
Dr. Al Aly at Woodglen Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery specializes in reshaping physiques and refining features. Renowned for his work in the complex field of contouring the body after a substantial weight loss, Dr. Al Aly also earns plaudits for surgical skills used to lift brows and breasts.
Under direction from the doctor, aestheticians and registered nurse on staff keep clients looking youthful with the latest med-spa treatments and skincare regimens. They banish unwanted hair, veins, and wrinkles with laser treatments and inject facial furrows with a range of smoothing beauty serums. They also provide facials that cleanse and nourish careworn skin.
The dermatologists, physician assistants, and nurses at American Dermatology Centers are well versed in all dermatological matters, specializing in both cosmetic and medical skin problems. The center's aesthetic arsenal includes V-Beam, GentleLase, SmoothBeam and Q-Yag lasers that are each calibrated to nix blemishes and acne, erase spider veins and scars, and even whisk away unwanted hair and tattoos. The center also treats faces with cosmetic fillers such as wrinkle-reducing Botox, Dysport, and Restylane. More serious epidermal issues are referred to the center’s dermatologists, who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders of the skin, hair and nails including acne, cysts, allergic reactions, skin cancer and melanoma.
At Erase-A-Tat, a team of doctors and medical professionals employs laser technology to fade or remove unwanted tattoos. Short laser pulses target specific pigments, removing outdated designs or last week's grocery list over the course of several treatments. The staff puts client care first, welcoming questions and concerns and striving to always be on-call to provide quick answers. And though tattoo removal is their specialty, they harness powerful beams during services designed to treat uneven skin pigmentation, nail fungus, or spider veins.
At Ideology Skin & Image Clinic, the staff transforms clients' appearances without ever putting them under the knife. The laser technicians and aestheticians work to nonsurgically banish the skin's flaws and signs of aging using an arsenal of lasers and advanced techniques. They employ laser facelifts to boost collagen production and NanoCurrent radiofrequency facelifts to help generate the growth of new cells, both treatments resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin, like that of a newborn naked mole rat. Further perfecting skin surfaces, the team can also aim their lasers at stretch marks, unwanted tattoos, acne, scars, or areas of pigmentation, or rid bodies of unwanted hair.
But before a patient undergoes any treatment, he or she first meets with a team member in a consultation to learn about potential options, ask questions, and find the service that best fits their needs. In any treatment, the staff's twin priorities?achieving tangible results and maintaining patient safety?remain at the forefront of their minds, whether they're performing cosmetic injections or permanent makeup applications.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
