Skin Spa New York's seven Manhattan locations all represent the same business, but you wouldn't know it by stepping inside. That's because the spa strives to imbue each spot with the feel of its surrounding neighborhood, whether it's the bustling atmosphere of Midtown or the artsy character of Chelsea. Whatever the address, every studio brims with a mix of pamper-centric spa and results-oriented med-spa services using products such as PCA Clinical Skin Care and glo therapeutics. Private massages and full-body waxing complement the purifying effects of facials, which target individual issues such as blemishes and fine lines. Meanwhile, higher-tech treatments can revamp the entire body without a single incision, thanks to light-based techniques such as the collagen-boosting Laser Genesis, skin-tightening Titan laser, and anti-aging Photolight and Limelight facials, which remove signs of sun damage. A company-wide collection of more than 20 lasers can help clients rid themselves of hair by targeting and destroying the follicles that grow it. A plentiful stock of skincare serums is also available for purchase, allowing clients to keep their skin pristine at home.
New Heavenly Spa uses advanced technology to safely rejuvenate all skin tones and help patients achieve their ideal bodies. Aware that darker complexions can be more sensitive to lasers, technicians rely on a Candela module to smooth and depilate all skin tones. Several weight-management programs and dietary supplements help contour figures, and minimally invasive medical interventions such as beauty injections plump creases and flatten corduroy lines on faces. Together, medical-grade exfoliation treatments and massage services restore an even, healthy texture to skin all over the body. In the spa, a warren-like hallway leads toward private treatment rooms painted in muted pastels.
Red & White Spa pampers guests from head to toe, with massages, facials, laser treatments, and more. A wide variety of massage modalities ensures clients get the ultimate pampering they need, whether they're looking for a relaxing aromatherapy massage, a revitalizing scalp massage, or classic Swedish techniques. European facials revitalize skin with deep pore cleansing followed by steam, exfoliation, a facial massage, and a soothing mask. Along with facials and massages, the spa staff beautifies guests with eyelash extensions and waxing or laser hair removal.
At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments. Together, they alleviate skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Alternatively, they beautify skin with lasers, tightening sagging areas or removing unwanted hair. Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
In a cozy, brown-shuttered house that you might mistake for someone's home, Dr. Alfred Sofer is changing people's lives with cutting-edge medical technology. Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield's impressive facilities include an imaging room, where Dr. Sofer reveals sun damage and other conditions with the Visia complexion-analysis device. Dr. Sofer also uses the Vectra imaging system?which he discussed on WTNH 8's Connecticut Style program?to simulate the outcome of surgery or the addition of a second head in a realistic, three-dimensional model. He employs the advanced visualization tool to prepare patients for cosmetic and restorative procedures, which he performs either in the center's procedure room or within an accredited surgery center or hospital setting. If you walk up the office's charming, white-and-hardwood staircase to the second floor, you'll find members of Dr. Sofer's medical staff enhancing faces with nonsurgical skincare and laser treatments, including laser hair removal, photofacials, and dermal fillers.
With double board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Sofer has experience in the most delicate procedures. His training includes a microvascular and hand-surgery fellowship at the Christine M. Kleinert Institute, the site of the first hand transplant in the United States. His extensive knowledge and caring nature earned him the 2012 Best Cosmetic Surgeon award from readers of Fairfield County Weekly.
In addition to caring for patients' health at her clinic Le Pavillon Garries, Dr. Rosetta Garries harnesses her medical skills to transform her guests' appearance at Tiffany Elle Esthetics. At the med spa, which is housed within her medical practice, she and her staff beautify guests with a lineup of noninvasive treatments, many of which work to reshape the body, including radio frequency skin-tightening treatments and ultrasonic fat-reduction sessions. The team also helps combat the signs of aging with chemical peels and injectables such as Radiesse and Botox, and aim their laser beams to rid bodies of unwanted hair, tattoos, and unidentified orbiting objects.
Though medically-minded in its approach and effectiveness, this beauty-oriented branch of her clinic is also designed to completely immerse clients in tranquility, providing what Dr. Garries calls "the ultimate oasis in a busy metropolis." Soft music lulls guests into serenity as they're engulfed by panoramic views of the skyline, and plush leather couches comfort guests as they discuss their prospective treatments.
