The skin-savvy team at Central Place Skin Care graces faces with high-quality products, exfoliating the frontispiece and reversing any sun damage. A survey of facials includes the European facial ($60), which integrates a décolleté massage and steam, and the anti-aging Fountain of Youth facial ($90), which centers on a glycolic-acid peel. The Red Carpet facial ($80) dispels red LED light to stimulate collagen production and achieve movie-star complexions without dipping faces into the walk of fame. Each eye treatment hydrates the thin skin that surrounds peepers, using a collagen sheet mask and LED light to diminish dark circles. Overall, the treatments last approximately 90 minutes, equal in length to a documentary about skincare.
When Katie Kaplan graduated from Suffolk University with a master's degree in business, she found herself struggling to find a job in the midst of a recession. After finally landing a high-stress, low-paying position, she realized she had to make a career change. Katie decided to attend The Salter School, earned her massage license, and joined the ranks of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals by donning their trademark foam fingers. Today, she helps others find overall wellness through massage modalities that can mend injuries, ease the discomforts of pregnancy, and quell anxiety. Kate also volunteered her services at a charity event raising funds and awareness for multiple sclerosis.
Before Lori Lyons became a licensed massage therapist, she was a massage patient herself. Thus she understands that the best massage therapists don’t just address problem areas, they also understand the deep connection between mind and body and educate their patients so they make informed decisions regarding their treatment plans. To help inform each client, Lori pulls from certifications in both craniosacral massage and myofascial release and her ongoing studies in anatomy and various massage modalities. She uses Swedish techniques to encourage relaxation, deep-tissue techniques to address severe tension, and water-heated stones to loosen sinews but keep them from floating away. In addition to easing physical pain, these methods can help strengthen the immune system, increase flexibility, and aid the body's natural healing processes. They may also be combined with Lori’s other specialties, which include ear candling and reflexology.
The knowledgeable aestheticians at Sky Skin Center fend off unwanted follicles, signs of aging, and skin conditions with an assortment of spa and laser treatments.

Med-spa treatments—such as chemical peels, photofacials, vascular treatments, and microdermabrasion—tackle conditions as varied as rosacea, acne scarring, and sun damage. Skin-lift injections, including Botox, Juvéderm, and Radiesse, restore visages' youthful appearance, and soothing facials and massages ease muscle tension caused by trying to dead-lift 50-pound sunglasses.
