Plastic surgeon Joseph Russo has spent the last 20 years adjusting bodies to erase the appearance of age with skills picked up during training at Harvard University. He currently directs the beauty-oriented crew at Laser Gentle Medical Spa, which employs laser and skincare treatments to refashion complexions and contours. Lasers zap unwanted hair, veins, and age spots in painless treatments, and facials and peels target façades to cleanse pores and adjust oil balances. I-Lipo treatments affect change from the inside out by penetrating the skin with low-level lasers to admonish fat cells and smooth cellulite.
At Atir Natural Nail & Skin Care Spa, manicures aren’t meant to be a simple indulgence. Instead, the staff focuses on the belief that beautiful nails are healthy nails, combining the usual services of trimming cuticles and applying polish with added attention to maintaining hands’ natural wellness. They moisturize the skin, remedy cracked cuticles, and soften calluses, restoring the damage caused by constantly walking on your hands to avoid waking the downstairs neighbors.
Working exclusively with natural nails—no acrylics here—Atir’s technicians cover four bases: hydration, maintenance, protection, and polish. Since each client’s nails are different, each manicure begins with an in-depth consultation, after which may prescribe everything from a moisturizing dip in paraffin to a hand treatment that fights signs of aging or abuse from gardening, beanstalk-climbing, or other repetitive hands-on jobs. Pedicures are just as in-depth, incorporating six types of botanical pedicures infused with such fruits as pomegranate and blood orange, and services such as heated foot wraps and massages help sap tension from well-traveled soles. Beyond natural skin care, the spa also soothes the skin with natural treatments, including chemical peels and waxing.
Licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Christine’s Day Spa know how to pamper their clients, but the spa’s service list reflects a greater goal: with 15 facials and peels, the staff has a far-reaching slate of aesthetic treatments with which it dedicates itself to vivifying its clientele's complexions. Their botanical extracts and cosmeceutical products help to boost collagen and minimize fine lines, slowing signs of aging without having to slather faces with molasses.
Massage therapists administer Hawaiian, reiki, and traditional European massages to relax muscles, and Christine’s Day Spa's UV and sunless tanning helps to burnish bodies with golden glows. An array of nail services exfoliate, moisturize, and polish fingers and toes. The spa is open after hours every weekday, and its interior unites floral arrangements with vivid orange and red sponge-painted walls for a warm ambiance.
Dr. Sandra V. Kristiansen heads the capable staff at the AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center, one that specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and houses a physician onsite daily. Avoiding general anesthesia, they use only local anesthesia to help minimize downtime. Doctors can perform several treatments designed to abate unsightly leg veins, such as endovenous laser treatments, which use tiny laser fibers within the vein to close them up. Other treatments include fat transfer, where the client's own fat is removed, purified, and re-injected into a different area of the body to help achieve a more youthful look. There's also IPL hair removal and laser liposuction, the latter of which liquefies and removes fat via a tiny cannula. Established in 1997 and BBB accredited, AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center now operates in a brand-new facility with optimal highway access.
Mila Skin Care Salon's eponymous aesthetician, Mila Kriger, calls upon more than 10 years of skin-care experience—including hands-on training with organic and alternative medicines such as Ayurveda—to clear skin of blemishes and promote a healthy, glowing complexion. Though Mila specializes in restoring the face to its youthful radiance, her holistic approach emphasizes whole-body detoxification and may include energy healing, chakra balancing, or karmic residue cleaning. She combines these nontraditional healing methods with advanced skin-clearing treatments, employing a MegaPeel microdermabrasion machine to peel away dead skin cells and a Galvanic facial massager to clear black eye rims caused by staying up late or wearing freshly painted monocles. Depending on the personalized skin-care regimen she crafts for you, Mila may also call upon organic products from Hylunia or the professional formulations of PCA SKIN.
By specializing in just one beautifying treatment, facials, the aestheticians at The Facial Corner harness an undistracted expertise. They pamper clients and keep skin healthy with more than 10 kinds of facials that address concerns such as acne, dryness, and aging.
