A glowing complexion, a smooth bikini line, a relaxed mind. The beauticians and massage therapists at DaySpa Millburn seek to cultivate all of these and more. Their massages include relaxing western styles as well as the traditional Chinese practices of reflexology and Tui-Na, designed to stimulate energy flow around key points of the body. Prior to performing one of their myriad facials, aestheticians identify clients' problem areas in complimentary consultations. From there, they allow guests to choose a facial that addresses specific needs or a blended package of inventive facials, including an organic one, a collagen facial, and microdermabrasion. DaySpa Millburn offers 14 facials, enough for the entire New York Jets offense and three linebackers to get unique facials together.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I started my schooling in 2008, and since then, I've earned many certifications in various treatments and skills.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
My studio features a cozy room with a comfy heated bed, spa music, and scented candles.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
I explain in detail all that will be involved and included in their treatments. Their questions will be addressed before we begin.
Healthy skin is the main focus at Organic Rose Day Spa, which is why the team of knowledgeable technicians uses only organic and natural skincare products from Dermalogica, Rhonda Allison, and GiGi Honee. During advanced skincare treatments, aestheticians can customize each of nine traditional spa facials to complement any skin type, from calming redness with a cooling seaweed mask and minimizing sunspots with a vitamin C serum to smoothing fine lines with an anti-aging caviar cleanser. The spa's advanced skincare technology helps foster healthy, glowing complexions using chemical peels and microdermabrasion to exfoliate away sunspots, blue and yellow LED light therapy for fine lines and acne, and microcurrent technology to lift sagging skin.
The versatile aestheticians can provide more than simply skincare, including services to embellish bikini areas with decorative vajazzling, colorful hair dye, or hair designs that shape strands into hearts, stars, and Magic Eye pictures.
Sofia Perez has always had a passion for hairstyling and beauty treatments. Her mentor, accomplished hairstylist Gilbert Febles, taught her how to both design hair and push herself beyond perceived limits. After years of experience in running a high-volume beauty salon, Perez created the first Sofi's Color Lounge in Cranford in 1997. Here, she gathered together a team of former coworkers and skilled professionals, and the venture was successful enough to spin off a second location in Summit in 2008.
Today, Perez's adept staff perform their signature color treatments and diverse hair services using hand-picked, innovative products from makers like Goldwell, KMS California, and GK Hair. Both locations have a sleek, modern feel: the Summit site has metallic blue and silver walls, and the Cranford salon also welcomes guests with a metallic color scheme.
Essential oils and plant extracts. Cold masks. Papaya enzymes. Collagen masks. These are just a few of the techniques and ingredients used during Pure Nature Day Spa's skincare services. While the treatments range wildly, from organic deep-cleansing facials with cold masks to bio-life tightening facials, the end goal is generally the same: refreshed, clear, and more beautiful skin.
Along with performing skincare, the staff at Pure Nature Day Spa pampers guests in many other ways. Massages, body scrubs, and herbal wraps are also available, along with eyebrow shaping and weight-loss services.
Before Dr. Alexander Ovchinsky began working with clients at Plastic Surgery of Short Hills, he spent years building on his knowledge in the field of aesthetic medicine. He received double board certification and completed a fellowship that trained him exclusively in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. In his role as assistant professor at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, he now passes on this wisdom when not working in his own clinic.
At Plastic Surgery of Short Hills, he directs staff members as they help him to work toward individuals’ beauty goals through reconstructive and cosmetic surgery as well as injectable treatments. Custom programs include facials, microdermabrasion, and peels, and laser light is used to remove unwanted hair, improve skin tone, and treat spider veins.
