With the help of plant-based Yon-Ka Paris products, Blanfil's aestheticians rejuvenate faces of all ages and skin types. Five different styles of facial treatments go beyond simple cleansing with several steps designed to exfoliate, purify, and moisturize the skin. Some of the facials are age specific, such as the teen facial that targets stubborn blackheads and soothes the stress of perpetual algebra with an aromatic compress, or the anti-aging facial that includes a relaxing face and neck massage along with a freeze-dried-fruit mask. In addition to vivifying visages, the skincare specialists wield warm wax to banish unwanted hair from eyebrow to toe knuckle, and their reflexology treatments reduce stress and cleanse the body of impurities.
Massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians rejuvenate body and mind with an array of treatments at The N Spa, earning it a spot in Westchester Life & Health's 2011 Ultimate Spa Guide. Using products by Dermalogica and Jan Marini during facials or microdermabrasions, staffers address client-specific issues such as acne, fine lines, or hail damage. They also ease tension with customized pressure during massages and remove hair with award-winning waxing services.
Bella Estetica Beauty & Wellness helps clients transform with body wraps, light therapies, and massages. Technicians use these techniques, among others, to help guests shed a few inches, liberate trapped toxins from the body, or smooth complexions.
Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
