Although most people want a glowing tan, no one wants burnt, painful skin. That’s why the Smart Tan-certified professionals at Bronze Couture Tan & Spa guide clients through the tanning options available in their salon, ensuring clients select the tanning method and lotion that will best darken their individual skin type. The staff members desire to help clients reduce the negative effects of tanning, and thus educate them on how to enhance tanning sessions with accelerating lotions, chocolate syrup, or the salon’s higher-tiered UV beds. The Level 3–7 Ergoline beds build up tans over time, whereas the salon’s high-pressure Magic 636 bed condenses eight hours of sunshine into 12 minutes.
As an alternative to UV tanning, certified airbrush artists offer custom spray tans that last for 5–10 days. The salon also offers complementary services such as teeth whitening, tan-prolonging hydration treatments, and red light–therapy facials.
With their LightSheer diode laser and Palomar IPL system, the specialists at The Medispa at Shrewsbury can fix almost any skin issue clients throw their way. The devices release focused bursts of energy that, when adjusted to suit the client’s skin type, can zap away unwanted hairs, erase tattoos, or lighten blemishes such as leg veins and acne scars. Meanwhile, Dr. Steven Davis—a board-certified plastic surgeon who was featured on The Doctors—works with his staff to combat wrinkles and fine lines with injectables such as Botox and Restylane. To help clients navigate the spa’s service menu and complex system of lava streams, complimentary consultations divulge facts about potential treatment options to ensure informed decision making.
After a sterling two-decade career as a board-certified internist and gastroenterologist, Dr. Ramon Suatengco needed a fresh way to make a difference in the lives of his patients. After realizing the power inherent in blending his medical expertise with an artist's eye for detail, he founded The Radiance, A Medical Spa, where he and his team blend clinical education with modern technology to accomplish revitalizing beauty treatments. The Lipo-Ex, a highlight of their repertoire, can help clients lose up to three sizes after eight weeks of treatment. It’s a non-invasive procedure using radio frequency energy to break down fatty tissue beneath the skin, which then leaves the body via the lymphatic system’s natural processes, leaving behind slimmer physiques that help patients take the first step toward healthier lifestyles. This dedication to life-changing therapies is just par for the course for Dr. Suatengco; when he's not busy treating patients or staying involved with the New Jersey Medical Society, he can often be found giving back to the community through numerous philanthropies and serving as the president and chairman of the Filipino-American Community Development Center.
