Named one of America's Top Surgeons in 2009 by the Consumers' Research Council of America, Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj draws upon nearly 20 years of experience as he helps clients attain their desired appearance. Dr. Slupchynskyj, director and founder of The Aesthetic Institute of New York & New Jersey, is an innovator in his field, developing procedures such as the SlupLift, a one- to two-hour mini face-lift that results in minimal scarring and recovery time for patients. Double board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, he’s also a familiar face to the media, bringing his expertise to publications including Vogue, New York magazine, and Woman’s World.
The Aesthetic Institute’s two locations, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and in Chatham, provide a private, comfortable environment as clients receive high-quality care. Services range from Botox injections and rhinoplasty to reconstructive surgery, accommodating those seeking enhancements both large and small.
At C'est La Vie, beauty experts style and cut hair, apply color to nails, and specialize in makeup artistry.

These treatments, products, and services offer guests a uniquely comprehensive selection of beauty options.
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.
It took a trip to Sedona, Arizona, to rekindle Kathy Zagorski’s passion for Japanese reiki treatments. Inspired by the natural beauty and energies of the high desert, Kathy decided to rededicate her life to helping clients overcome everything from stress to chronic pains through the use of reiki. Kathy asks her clients to lie on a massage table—still fully clothed or clad in chainmail—and concentrate on their breathing. She then proceeds to place her hands on various points of the body, searching for signs of blocked or restricted energetic flow. By redirecting the body’s natural energies and helping clear these blockages, Kathy restores a sense of balance between the mind, the body, and the spirit. This sense of balance can help alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, and grief.

Other services include acupuncture from licensed acupuncturist Michelle Kawecki, podiatry, and pain-management treatments.
The stylists at Hy Gorgeous know that the eyes have it, so they focus exclusively on emphasizing peepers with eyelash extensions. They add fringe lash-by-lash, creating a look that can be subtly fuller or boldly unmistakable. Because the extensions do not wash off like mascara, lashes continue to look great after sleeping, exercising, or manning a dunk tank.
Beth Geller and her staff specialize in Endermologie—an innovative treatment that uses a noninvasive motorized device to smooth the deep tissue of the skin and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
