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.
Haircare, facials, and tanning. At Bellezza Tan & Spa, beauty treatments come in many forms. The stylists update men's and women's looks with cuts, color, and perms or hair relaxers, fully preparing you for entry into the witness protection program. Bodies are treated to bronze glows, thanks to airbrush spray tanning or three levels of tanning beds. They revitalize skin with red-light therapy treatments, which are designed to boost the body's circulation, in turn stimulating collagen and elastin production. This gives the skin a more youthful appearance without the risks inherent to invasive cosmetic procedures.
With more than 25 years of experience in the fields of hair care and skin care, Karen Marlise knows what aesthetic services to use to make her clients look their best. She is skilled in the art of permanent cosmetics and has mastered the high-tech marksmanship of laser hair reduction. Traditional facials and peels encourage a healthy and refreshed complexion, while cellulite treatments and body-contouring services work to refine the silhouette.
Karen is the sole proprietor of her private medical spa studio, and she does her work under the supervision of Dr. Valdes.
Looking at her lengthy service list, it may be hard to believe that Brittany Niles does them all herself. But this skin expert helms her self-named business, treating her clients to luxurious facials, exfoliating microdermabrasion, peels, and back facials. She also peppers in soothing add-ons—such as head and hot-stone massages—to leave her clients more relaxed than a spaghetti noodle in a jacuzzi.
The team at East Meets West Massage & Spa focuses on making clients look and feel their best. Visitors can opt for one of five massage styles—including both hot- and cold-stone massage—to help heal an injury, release tension, or ease anxiety. The spa also offers body waxing and skin treatments, including facials and photorejuvenation.
