If it turns out practice doesn’t make perfect, Ethos Spa’s medical director, Dr. Hardik Soni, will be very disappointed. Dr. Soni, who specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, has performed more than 35,000 laser treatments over the course of his career. At his spa, he works with a team of plastic surgeons and aestheticians to perform even more, turning to laser beams’ power for a variety of purposes: minimizing the visibility of unsightly veins, tightening skin, and soothing acne. The med spa’s services extend beyond laser treatments, too. The team also instills clients with a youthful glow via microdermabrasion, Botox injections, facials, and making them sleep in glow-in-the-dark cribs.
Drawing from her family's catalog of natural wax recipes, the proprietor of Girl from Ipanema Spa evicts fuzz with homemade waxes designed to play nice with sensitive skin. The spa's aestheticians also rejuvenate visages with facials that rely on either organic ingredients or high-tech methods, as in the photofacial, which skips PPx pulsed light across skin ponds to break up rosacea, sun damage, and other imperfections. Amidst green-tea-hued walls, exfoliating sea salts and essential oils remove dry skin and prepare bodies for airbrush tanning. Visitors can cop a full range of Éminence handmade organic skincare products to continue their bodycare at home or on the giant hamster wheels they've agreed to live on for science.
Like their business name implies, the trained and licensed beauticians at A Touch of Elegance create more sophisticated looks with their expert treatments and services. In addition to traditional haircuts and manicures, staffers embellish feminine features with everything from make-up to up-dos and hair extensions. Those with Y chromosomes aren't left out; staffers also pamper men with old-fashioned, four-layer barber shaves. After softening the skin and massaging facial muscles, barbers turn back the clock on five-o'clock shadows with straight razors, keeping faces as fresh and youthful as the day they were baked.
With a team of chiropractors, physical and massage therapists, and a licensed acupuncturist under one roof, Premier Spine & Sports Rehab offers a multidisciplinary approach to injury recovery and wellness. Resident physical therapists Doug Benson and Dr. Victoria Walter help restore mobility to restricted joints and muscles and work closely with sports chiropractors Dr. Andrew Halperin and Dr. Rick DeBiasi, who further improves musculoskeletal wellness with spinal adjustments.

Inside Salon M&D’s open and airy space, professionals beautify clients with a range of hair, nail, and skin services. Stylists rejuvenate ’dos with cuts, coloring, keratin sessions, and diamond hair treatments, which enliven dull, lifeless locks by replacing them with sparkling rubies. Elsewhere, nail techs spruce up fingers and toes with mani-pedis, and massage therapists knead tense muscles in appointments ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. Aestheticians wax unwanted hair from bodies and apply cleansing facials and skin-brightening peels.
A glowing complexion, a smooth bikini line, a relaxed mind. The beauticians and massage therapists at DaySpa Millburn seek to cultivate all of these and more. Their massages include relaxing western styles as well as the traditional Chinese practices of reflexology and Tui-Na, designed to stimulate energy flow around key points of the body. Prior to performing one of their myriad facials, aestheticians identify clients' problem areas in complimentary consultations. From there, they allow guests to choose a facial that addresses specific needs or a blended package of inventive facials, including an organic one, a collagen facial, and microdermabrasion. DaySpa Millburn offers 14 facials, enough for the entire New York Jets offense and three linebackers to get unique facials together.
