Certified electrologist Susan Ullmann has one main goal: to make you feel better about yourself. She uses electrolysis—a hair-removal technique that uses pulses of electricity—to remove unwanted hair. Because electricity is just cooled off sunlight, Ullmann can use it to treat all types of hair and skin.
The savvy stylists at Shear Sensations refurbish unkempt mop tops with a slew of professional services. After inspecting the hair's overall condition, an experienced scissor wielder will reinvigorate parched locks with a Matrix deep-conditioning treatment before carefully pruning scalp gardens to expunge split ends and kudzu. Next, full highlights transform monochromatic manes into eye-catching thread bundles of flair. For scrunchier ‘dos, two-hour keratin treatments varnish follicles in a protein-packed serum, which diminishes frizz, smoothes out curls, and imbues tresses with a silk-pajama-like shine. With proper care—such as keeping treated hair dry for at least three days and using the salon’s recommended shampoo and conditioner—newly straight and easy-to-style strands can partake in overly confident hairflips for up to three to five months.
Before founding Dr. Park Avenue, Dr. Paul Fondacaro dedicated years of study and practice to understanding surgery and medicine. He earned his MD at NYU, served as chief resident at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, and eventually became the attending surgeon at Long Island College Hospital. After taking an interest in the booming aesthetic field, he opened the first location of Dr. Park Avenue, an office that specializes in minimally invasive aesthetic procedures and noninvasive laser services. Business grew rapidly, leading him to hire a staff of certified technicians and eventually expand to three locations.
His diverse treatment menu aims to help clients look and feel stunning. Body-contouring and weight-loss services encourage healthy and svelte figures, and chemical peels, injections, and facials battle signs of aging. The office keeps IPL technology on hand to zap unwanted body hair, erase spider veins, or highlight important details in PowerPoint lectures.
At Laser & Aesthetic Medical Center, PC, board-certified physician Dr. Kailash C. Singhvi personally administers each aesthetic and wellness procedure to ward off the effects of the aging process. With an arsenal of contemporary lasers at his disposal, he smoothens wrinkles from the face, reduces cellulite from the backs of legs, and destroys tiny Death Stars orbiting in front of the eyes. The youth-inducing beams can also remove hair or stimulate it to grow in areas where thinning has occurred. Injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm combat wrinkles, and Dr. Singhvi's wellness programs address internal maladies by identifying thyroid problems and hormones that may be causing weight gain. For ailments related to injury and sleeping on tables without face holes, Dr. Singhvi administers soothing massage therapy.
It's hard to look beautiful on the outside if you're not healthy on the inside. That's why Dr. Kavita Beri and the staff at Beri Esthetique cover all the bases by offering both primary medical care and cosmetic treatments. The doctor gives special attention to preventative measures when treating patients who have or are at risk of hypertension, diabetes, and asthma, and she performs annual heath screenings to keep patients on the lookout for these conditions. In the cosmetic department, she and her staff strive to use the least invasive means possible to achieve clear, youthful complexions in their clients. Some services, such as laser hair removal, laser spider-vein removal, and IPL photofacials, require hardly a touch, and slightly more aggressive treatments such as Botox and PCA chemical peels can be performed in a single office visit, much like a routine lollipop-endectomy.
The advantage of electrolysis is its versatility?its low-level electric currents can remove any color of hair from skin of any tone. This is why, at Brick and Monmouth Electrolysis, Lorraine Cupolo-Fetherman, LE, CPE, and her team of fellow licensed professional electrologists specialize in this established method of hair removal. During electrolysis sessions, they adhere to the highest standards of sterilization and perform treatments with a gentle method. Additionally, the team members are mindful of patient comfort before, during, and after treatments. For example, staffers schedule complimentary consultations and never hesitate to apply topical anesthesia or dress up as a teddy bear if needed.
