Sofia Perez has always had a passion for hairstyling and beauty treatments. Her mentor, accomplished hairstylist Gilbert Febles, taught her how to both design hair and push herself beyond perceived limits. After years of experience in running a high-volume beauty salon, Perez created the first Sofi's Color Lounge in Cranford in 1997. Here, she gathered together a team of former coworkers and skilled professionals, and the venture was successful enough to spin off a second location in Summit in 2008.
Today, Perez's adept staff perform their signature color treatments and diverse hair services using hand-picked, innovative products from makers like Goldwell, KMS California, and GK Hair. Both locations have a sleek, modern feel: the Summit site has metallic blue and silver walls, and the Cranford salon also welcomes guests with a metallic color scheme.
The specialists at Urelax Oriental Natural Therapy have a simple goal: to turn the spa’s name into reality. Facial massage, foot reflexology, and anti-stress back massage target troubled regions directly, easing tension in ways specific to that area's needs. Alternatively, the whole-body massage aims to treat the complete human form and the baseball cap sitting directly above it. But whether the haven’s therapists release knots with acupressure techniques, or soothe aches with hot stones, they work to balance the body and ensure the flow of “qi”—life energy.
Like many med-spas, Health & Wellness Center uses lasers to combat unwanted hair and beam away wrinkles. But unlike most, the facility's lasers are also calibrated to help patients quit smoking or lose unwanted pounds. Medical aestheticians help lift sagging faces sans surgery with IPL skin-tightening treatments that inundate collagen with waves of infrared light, causing tissues to contract and faces to appear more youthful. Injections of Botox and Juvederm also smooth and shape facial contours, and chemical peels with glycolic or salicylic acid dislodge dead skin by accelerating the natural process of exfoliation. To ensure patients leave healthy from head to toe, they also aim the cosmic technology to conquer toenail fungus, preparing feet for display in flip-flops or glass clogs.
Calling on more than 50 years of combined experience, the doctors at Body Sculpt By Laser make over clients from the inside out with holistic, noninvasive treatments. Their one-two coup de gr?ce against flab begins with the FDA-approved i-Lipo Laser, which shrinks fatty adipose cells by causing them to release triglycerides for natural disposal through the lymphatic system. This gentle process is aided by whole-body-vibration treatments that kick metabolisms into overdrive for expedient fat removal. The staff also creates custom lifestyle programs and nutritional plans, and supplies herbal supplements to bolster weight-loss efforts.
