At Becoming New, a diverse team of licensed cosmeticians, a paramedical esthetician, a massage therapist, and nail technicians enhance appearances with modern technology. The experts shy away from invasive surgery and instead employ ultrasonic technology to target fat deposits and ultherapy to sculpt arms and necks. The spa’s arsenal also includes detoxifying and slimming body wraps, as well as chemical peels that help erase fine lines and other signs of aging. For gentler rejuvenation, skin experts treat pores to blueberry and champagne facials. The staff add the finishing touches to appearances with permanent hair removal and manicures that brighten nails with CND Shellac and Gelish polish, which resist chipping even while slapping a rude statue.
All About You Salon's sociable stylists tend to tresses with experienced hands, straightening locks with formaldehyde-free KeraStraight products. During the two- to four-hour treatment, the solution sinks into the hair's internal cortex and sheaths cuticles in a low-pH protein to repair, strengthen, and straighten damaged locks. Nanomolecules of 22-karat gold embedded in the product infuse hair with an extra punch of shine that, like the upcoming holiday season, lasts up to four months. Coifs in any condition, whether chemically treated, dyed, or previously untouched, readily accept the smoothening, and clients can shampoo on the same day of their treatment.
Ural is a region in Russia that’s known for its gemstones. One gemstone in particular makes an appearance during treatments at L'ural Spa: moonstone. Known for its relaxing properties, the gemstone helps center patrons as they undergo signature facials or relaxing massages. The staff also beautifies skin with heated wax, specialized serums, and microdermabrasion tools.
As the inventor of both a patented burn-treatment device and a scarless, internal breast-lift procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Adamson places high importance on safe, up-to-date technologies. During laser hair-removal sessions at his downtown clinic, skilled technicians zap troublesome follicles with the Lumenis LightSheer Diode Laser, whose intense light disables hair growth at the root, and its patented ChillTip cools skin and smuggled lobster bisque. Because hair grows in cycles, it may take more than six treatments to fully eradicate unwanted whiskers and ensure satisfactory smoothness.
Inside a tranquil facility that first opened its doors 30 years ago, the experienced aestheticians of The Inner Circle Spa revive clients’ faces with microdermabrasion and dermaplaning treatments. Noninvasive microdermabrasions banish dull, dead skin cells with gentle diamond chips, which are less irritating than traditional crystals or banshee ringtones. For the dermaplaning treatment, aestheticians sweep away surface cells with a high-speed rotating brush to reveal glowing new skin.
NeoDerm Aesthetics melds art and science for a full range of professional, quality aesthetic services. Put best faces forward with the microdermabrasion session, an FDA-approved treatment to exfoliate away dead skin cells with medical-grade aluminum-oxide crystals. Microdermabrasion can reduce evidence of fine lines, age spots, and treasure-map tattoos. The treatment concludes with postprocedure advice and an application of an antioxidant mask or a gentle chemical-solution stimulant to optimize results.
