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.
David Marron remembers a day when he was in middle school, kneeling atop a pew during Mass and clasping his hands together in prayer. His back, already strained at a young age from participating in a number of sports, sent pulses of pain to his knees. The pain overwhelmed him and he fainted, startling the Catholic-school peers around him. David's mother, concerned for the wellbeing of her son, decided to take him to a chiropractor. The treatments quickly helped to rebuild the strength in his body, and sparked young David's desire to pursue a career in chiropractic.
Since becoming a board-certified chiropractor in 1984, Doctor of Chiropractic David Marron has completed numerous post-graduate studies, garnered several certifications, and opened a center focused on treating ailments with a combination of holistic modalities. The team at Marron Wellness Center creates personalized healing plans for patients of all ages, whose aches and pains may meet their fate with any blend of techniques from chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and massage therapy.
The facility houses multiple treatment rooms, including three chiropractic rooms, two acupuncture rooms, and one decompression room, plus two separate waiting areas to ensure that all visitors can score a seat for themselves and their favorite cat figurine.
The stylists and aestheticians at Trimz Hair Salon have crafted a virtual Swiss Army knife of relaxation. Amid exposed-brick walls, a burnt-orange accent wall, and potted palms, hair, nail, skincare, and massage services unfold to fix any exterior issue or prepare clients for long hikes through a shopping mall. Aquage and Simply Straight products add a luster to hair during cut-and-color treatments, whereas keratin treatments, relaxers, and thermal straightening treatments revamp texture and eliminate frizz. Apart from hair treatments, the staff focuses on skincare, specializing in facials tailored to complement each client's skin type or relieve sinus pain. Six shades of airbrush-tanning sprays are also on hand to create a flawless summer glow, and massages loosen up knots without clients attempting DIY solutions that involve rolling pins.
Whether stopping by for a quick haircut or manicure or devoting a whole day to facials and massages, trained staff members pamper guests of Milagro Spa amid soothing amenities. Visitors don robes and lounge in the relaxation area after their services are complete, basking in the glow that only an expertly administered mud wrap or nearby anglerfish can provide. Thoughtful touches such as onsite childcare ensure youngsters stay safe and happy while adults unwind.
The Enchanted Cottage is aptly named—it’s the kind of place that Goldilocks might stumble upon when trolling through the forest, looking for foodstuffs to steal. If she ever showed up here, she’d be in luck, because complimentary homemade breads, cookies, mozzarella, and herbal tea are offered to all who enter.
Lauretta Iavarone, who operates this cozy gem of a studio, classifies herself as a face-lift-massage specialist. Her signature massage tones the face by releasing facial tension and contractions that build up over time and eventually inspire wrinkles. The treatment’s toning benefits increase with multiple sessions, each of which includes soothing hot towels for the hands and feet. Alongside the face-lift massage, Lauretta offers Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and reflexology massage services to relieve tension in backs, necks, shoulders, and feet.
On their way out, clients can purchase all-natural, handmade skincare products by Mary Fairy Angels—including the Angel face cream used in Lauretta’s face-lift massage—or they can pick up a jar of raw, locally made honey.
Before a client undergoes any of Medical Aesthetics of Red Bank's FDA-approved med-spa procedures, a physician meets with them for a complimentary consultation. This helps the staff tailor the spa's beauty services to each client because unlike one-size fits all Viking helmets, cosmetic treatments should take into account a person's skin sensitivities and skin type. After the consultation, the doctor—or aestheticians and laser technicians supervised by the doctor—get to work injecting facial fillers or Botox, or removing hair or veins with lasers.
