Founded by certified electrologist, aesthetician, and laser technician Donna Bayrouty, Laserderm Medispa's wide array of cosmetic services reflects its founder's versatility. Her skilled staff thwarts wrinkles and blemishes during facial treatments that incorporate Isolaz beams or ultrasonic frequencies to spur collagen production. The staff picks up Laserscope's medical-grade Lyra during hair-removal treatments and applies lash extensions and permanent makeup.

Current owner Flora Suissa and the founders of Suissa Salon trained in Paris and Montreal before opening their first salon in 1970 in the US. They took what they learned in the City of Light and the Province of Poutine, and created their own brand of salons. It was only a matter of time before their style shops grew into myriad locations.
Today, Suissa features a roster of talented stylists, aestheticians, and nail artists. They've also got an ace up their sleeve: Eve Diaz, who developed her own line of beauty products—LaPenotiere—which is the primary product line featured here. Armed with talent and products, stylists deliver haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments that discipline frizzy and static-addicted hair. They also offer weft tape extensions and hijab services, offered in private suites. Suissa's stylists pride themselves on their versatility, which means they're familiar with a large and diverse client base and are adept at working with clients of all ethnicities and a wide range of hair types.
As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
Like artists heading outdoors to catch the best light for a photo, the brilliant colorists at ds Parada encircle their patrons' scalp-beards with brilliant halos of light. The salon features precise lighting designed to imitate late-afternoon daylight so patrons will get a clear picture of their pigment updates, even if they can't make it to the studio until evening. The expert head-shapers begin each visit with a free consultation to evaluate skin tone, examine eye color, and consult the rooftop hair guru for special advice. Basic head shearings for men ($30+) and women ($45+) blaze new trails through skulltop flora, and the tress technicians skillfully readjust pigmentation values with toners ($30), glazes ($30), and full colors ($90+). Further follicle enhancements feature spot highlights ($50+), French-style paint-in colors ($60+), full foils ($100+), and artificially intelligent self-styling hair implants (pricing varies).
Once you have your Groupon, you can get an appointment with one of Viva's staff of master hair shamans, who know how to snip and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Each professional stylist routinely soaks in the trends and styles to ensure the utmost tender care to needy noodle nests, and he or she will happily work with your particular whims or offer whims of their own free of charge. After a thorough shampoo, your stylist will keenly sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then direct careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out ($40 value). Soon after, the scalp will receive a deep conditioning treatment using high-end Eufora products to hydrate and preserve new 'do ($20 value). Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling dark alleyways.
