Under the expert guidance of a board-certified physician, the staff of Casa de Belleza Medical Spa performs treatments that range from relaxing to results-oriented. A massage therapist can use warm bamboo sticks to promote better circulation and break up muscle knots during a bamboo-fusion massage. To combat signs of aging, the doctor offers sclerotherapy vein treatments, Botox and dermal fillers, and prescription Latisse, and helps to revamp physiques from the inside out with custom fitness and nutrition programs. The team also includes a makeup expert who, according to the med spa's website, has worked with celebrities and models such as the design team of Kimora Lee Simmons and Yoanna House of America's Next Top Model.
The center fosters a calm atmosphere where fragrant aromatherapy treatments soothe the senses. To preserve the spa's tranquil environs, the staff asks that clients silence their cell phones, use quiet tones of voice, and remove all plosive consonants from spoken words.
Using mainly natural, hand-blended products, the aestheticians of Believe Day Spa give faces a rosy glow, make hands and feet softer with mani-pedis, and remove unwanted hair via sugaring—an ancient art that uses a sticky paste to whisk away strands without adhering to skin. Customizable facials use organic, cruelty-free Éminence products, inspired by Hungarian-spa culture, fresh produce, and the traditional gazpacho baths of Europe.
Salon Nima is a cutting-edge salon with stylists that combine technique and creativity to craft modern styles. Owner Marie Parrilla and her staff emphasize continuing education so as to keep up with the latest trends. They put that into practice during haircuts, color-cutting, and ammonia-free coloring. Kelley Stead, the licensed massage therapist, offers Swedish and deep-tissue massages inside the same studio, as well as extended foot massages.
Away from the screams of blow dryers and the snip-snips of scissors, Monika carves a nook for herself at The Star Salon. There, she tends her clients’ dermal layers with a skilled tenderness. Facials blast through acne and brighten dull skin, and a special anticellulite body treatment smoothes dimpled skin.
Weight & Body Solutions' experienced physicians employ technologically enhanced weight-reduction techniques and more traditional nutrition-based programs to help clients melt away unwanted fat and reveal svelte silhouettes. Patients relax in the comfortable atmosphere of a private room as they discuss their beauty goals with informed counselors, asking questions about their various treatment options, which include weekly plans enhanced with thorough exams and energizing vitamin shots along with medical treatments such as tumescent liposuction. Liposuction is done under local anesthesia using a small cannula and requires very little downtime, sending patients back to work within 24 to 48 hours—just in time to sport sleek silhouettes for Risky Business–themed casual Fridays.
Tru Beaute Med Spa boasts a staff of three heroines whose primary nemeses are stress and Father Time. The spa's partner in crime, Uchenna, also combats aging with the help of cosmetic injections. She uses wrinkle relaxers such as Botox and dermal fillers such as Restylane and Perlane to firm up the skin, fading frown lines without mandating that clients only watch sitcoms from now on. Their leader and spa manager, licensed massage therapist Valerie, fends off stress and muscle ache with specialized massages to address each client's therapeutic and relaxation needs. Lead medical esthetician Elizabeth's noninvasive HydraFacials simultaneously moisturize, exfoliate, and protect the skin through hydradermabrasion, and her dermaplaning procedures gently clear away dead skin cells to reveal luminous complexions.
Rounding out the team roster, medical esthetician Tasha specializes in the application of permanent makeup and eyelash extensions. Tasha applies permanent makeup by hand, which allows for a softer look for her clients. She works carefully with each client to achieve the look they desire, and follows up with her permanent makeup clients for a touchup after 4 weeks. Cups of coffee and wine, served beneath the waiting room's sphere of hanging crystals, contribute to the spa's aura of relaxation.
