Overseen by a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard University Medical School and owned by a former model cum medical aesthetician, LivingYoung Center represents the apex of medicine and beauty. Since board-certified plastic surgeon Karen Singer earned her MD at Harvard, the doctor has spent more than 30 years developing a deft, artistic approach to whittling the contours and lifting the slack skin of patients while sculpting her own body through competitive ballroom dancing and innovative use of shoulder pads. She acknowledges that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to any treatment, and so attends closely to her patients' aspirations to create slim, youthful exteriors or rejuvenate them from within with bio-identical hormone therapy.
During her decade as a model, owner Katie Kaffai discovered a scientific interest in beauty and evaluated industry methods for making faces glow, such as surprising tween mannequins with teddy bears. She sought clinical training in aesthetics and laser technology to formalize this experience, developing a program of high-tech, noninvasive treatments to develop camera-ready skin at the cellular level. Kaffai and Singer both belong to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine to stay current with innovations in the field, and command an elite team that includes a doctor who specializes in facial anatomy in order to safely administer rejuvenating injections.
When Dr. George Kamajian isn’t busy lecturing on the international circuit, publishing medical articles, or writing books, he oversees his staff of aestheticians at Dr. K’s Med Spa. His team specializes in the use of advanced technology to fight the aging process without invasive plastic surgery. Some of those results-oriented treatments include the use of Cutera lasers, bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, Fraxel laser treatments, or beauty injections. Further bolstering the team’s time-reversing skin services is a menu of spa treatments that includes peels, facials, and massages, which aim to relax, improve skin tone, and punish wrinkles for their crimes against the face.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials, as well as Planet Beach's signature take on tantastic UV therapy. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services, such as hydro-derma fusion, sauna time, hydro massage ($40 per session), and luminous facials ($40 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
Marilyn Castorina has made a life out of making people prettier. A stylist with more than 20 years of experience and advanced training from both the International Dermal Institute and PCA Skin, she now welcomes clients to From Head to Toe Salon & Spa, where she renovates looks with services ranging from cuts and colors to facials, waxing, and nail services. She begins each hair appointment with a consultation, working with each client to determine a flattering plan before snipping away split ends or adding splashes of Pravana color. One of Bio Sculpture Gel Nails' educators in the state of Florida, she adds personality to fingertips with the company's no-chip color. She also eases tension by massaging faces, necks, and shoulders during the signature facial, and aims to leave complexions firm and acne-free with skin-specific treatments. As a more intensive anti-aging solution, Marilyn might even recommend a microdermabrasion session or a peel featuring clinical formulas by PCA Skin. They also use the Dermalogica skincare line, which was developed at The International Dermal Institute to eliminate common irritants, such as mineral oil, artificial colors, and kryptonite.
Each of Imagine You New's skincare specialists brings at least 10 years of experience to the spa's treatment tables. Still, they refuse to rely solely on their own experience when crafting custom treatments for new clients. Every facial or waxing service begins with an informal consultation, during which the aestheticians select products designed for the client's individual skin type or condition. Their collection of such products is extensive; professional DermaQuest formulas exfoliate and cleanse pores during facial treatments, OPI polishes add a glossy sheen to nails, and Jane Iredale mineral makeups imbue cheeks with a radiant glow. Imagine You New's free WiFi gives guests the chance to show off their new look on a social-networking site or research why their body makes a mechanical hissing sound when pressed on during a deep-tissue massage.
Tranquility Touch Spa & Wellness’s soothing oasis serves as a backdrop for relaxing massages, skin treatments, and group spa parties that incorporate Bella Earth’s natural products. Therapists employ gentle Swedish strokes or firm deep-tissue pressure to target stress, and both modalities can be augmented with the relaxing wafts of aromatherapy, tension-alleviating reflexology, or a hot-stone treatment that give disenfranchised skipping stones a chance to strategically warm physiques. The salon also offers a select menu of skin-refining treatments, unveiling radiant complexions with facials and exfoliating scrubs for the back and feet. Aestheticians also host BYOB massage parties, which combine home-brought libations with massages for the neck and shoulders, feet, and hands, sparking joyful dispositions within pampered attendees.
