The specialists at Skyn Clinic and Apothecary take a French approach to fostering clear complexions, meaning they place a big emphasis on proper skincare in the long run and don't perform services that provide only a quick fix. Botanical and essential-oil-based ingredients furnish services and products, including the spa's own custom skincare line, Skyn Clinic Custom Blends. Skyn Clinic uses only silk eyelash extensions and cruelty-free mink eyelash extensions harvested by carefully brushing minks for their loose hairs. A highly trained medical aesthetician applies extensions lash by lash and uses a soft collagen pad to protect the bottom lashes, specialized glue to adhere each strand to an original lash, and two tweezers in case one pair gets stage fright. Each semipermanent extension can last up to two months with regular showering, swimming, and exercising. Skyn Clinic medical aestheticians also provide full-body waxing, Viora cellulite reduction, fat reduction treatments, and skin tightening, as well as Xtreme facial and nonsurgical facelifts.

Owners Cathie Politis Fennell, Phil Fennell, and Olga Politis foster a collaborative approach at Salon Greco The European Day Spa. Every team member possesses a specialty within their field—for example, a massage therapist specializing in neuromuscular therapy, and a stylist who focuses on coloring—which means an expert is always available to consult with clients.
The salon's decor incorporates a granite reception desk, wall art as circular as a child's logic for why she should get a soda, and elegant chairs and rugs that match the ornate earth-tone floor. Stylists welcome guests into this environment before beginning each appointment by considering their subject's face shape and hair texture. They can also help clients combat thinning hair with restoration treatments. At the spa, aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists wait on guests with relaxing treatments for the whole body, including nonsurgical face-lifts with the Neurotris facial-rejuvenation system.
Exposed brick, stone masonry, and long, arched windows line the facade of Nyah Med Spa's cottage-like building. But what lies behind the beautiful exterior is an arsenal of cutting-edge aesthetic technology—fittingly, since that's also what lies behind the beautiful exterior of each departing client. To get skin to its most radiant, the spa's team of aestheticians calls on treatments ranging from the traditional, such as its more than 10 classic facials, to more novel services that use IPL, lasers, or skin-safe chemical solutions to banish fine lines and blemishes. They even perform a slate of teen-specific services that target the acne, oil, and eye rolls of adolescence, along with numerous treatments tailored to men. Bodies get their time in the spotlight, as well—luxurious body scrubs and massages give way to higher-tech treatments such as laser hair removal and VelaShape body sculpting.
The holistic experts at Optimum Health fuse Western medicine and alternative therapies to tackle clients’ health and wellness concerns. While chiropractors identify and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, physical therapists treat injuries and disabilities by crafting custom protocols composed of therapeutic exercises, hot and cold therapies, and neuromuscular re-education. Similarly, skilled massage therapists employ deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies to loosen and restore tense sinews. Doctors and nurse practitioners target pain at its source rather than merely covering up the symptoms with painkillers or a plastic tarp. Additionally, Optimum Health's specialists craft custom treatment plans for patients struggling with weight loss, nutrition, and stress as they target the underlying causes of health issues.
During her more than 20 years in the beauty industry, Kimberly has earned certifications as a medical aesthetician instructor, laser specialist and master body artist and has performed nearly 10,000 medical procedures. Nowadays, she draws on her eclectic credentials at the helm of her eponymous laser center. With beams from FDA-approved Candela and Syneron laser systems, she and her staff, including Dr. Jack Cheng, can remove unwanted stubble, tighten wrinkled skin, and rejuvenate faces aged by the knowledge that the tooth fairy is actually a boozy out-of-work actor. Her permanent-makeup services streamline morning beauty routines, and her patients’ crow’s-feet and laugh lines temporarily disappear after injections of Botox, Restylane, and other cosmetic fillers. Kimberly’s team also performs spray tans and eyelash extensions.
Gyrotonic's restorative methods are in its name: "gyro" means spiral, and "tonic" means tone. Performed on a special Gyrotonic apparatus, this therapeutic exercise uses circular, low-impact movements to stretch and strengthen bodies—especially in the joints, spine, and abs. This mode of healing exemplifies the type of nontraditional practices the therapists and Pilates instructors at Above Physical Therapy often rely on, in addition to classic physical therapy.
