When children are sick, their parents will do anything to heal them. That’s why, when her teenage daughter developed fibromyalgia, Sorina Durante decided to go back to school to find ways to improve her daughter's health. She attended 10 different programs across England, Canada, and the United States to learn the latest in laser therapy and relaxation techniques, which not only helped her relieve her daughter's pains but also led her to open Energy Balance Laser Therapy & Massage. There, Durante shares with her clients her expertise in red-light therapy, therapeutic massage, and Dr. Kaufman's pain-neutralization technique, the latter of which relieves chronic and acute pain using a light touch. Durante also offers anti-aging facials that use lasers to firm and clear the skin, as well as stress-relieving alternative therapies such as reiki and CranioSacral.
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.
Sinful Tans New Age Spa's Smart Tan–certified technicians darken skin tones with Norvell UV-free spray tanning technology and whiten teeth with quality BleachBright products. A two-stage sunless tanning session commences with a cosmetic bronzer that instantly becomes visible like a ghost tripping into a shower curtain. A DHA bronzer reacts with the skin's amino acids to establish a streak-free golden tone over a 2–3 hour period. Odor inhibitors and a raspberry-almond fragrance leave an alluring scent on the epidermis, while caffeine helps to prevent skin damage and makes hula girl tattoos dance in double time. At the culmination of each airbrushing, an erythrulose bronzer topcoat is applied to lengthen tan lifecycles.
Licensed aesthetician and acne specialist Nikolett Ivanyi focuses her skills on curbing one of life’s frustrations: acne. Nikolett empathizes with those afflicted with the condition, for she suffered from breakouts in her 20s and spent hundreds of dollars on products and doctors who fruitlessly tried to help her. She finally took the reins and solved her own skin problems after becoming a certified acne specialist, and she now works to help others achieve the same results.
Nikolett helps clients ranging from kids to adults understand why their skin is misbehaving. She outlines a personalized Acne Free Skin program to clear up blemishes, which includes avoiding certain foods or cosmetics, and transforming their skin with facials and peels. Her programs are designed for those who are serious about getting their acne under control and diminishing it for good.

With its floor modeled after a basketball court, getting a haircut at Buzzer Beater Sports Barber Shop would feel like sitting courtside if it weren't for the conspicuous sight of hair falling onto the hardwood. Barbers cut, color, and style hair and perform straight-razor shaves, feats that had previously only been attempted on-court by the Harlem Globetrotters. Each cutting station is themed after a different pro basketball team and has its own TV broadcasting sports. In the waiting area, guests kick back in reclining chairs, sipping complimentary beverages and watching sports on TV.
One of the most recent innovations in hair-straightening, The Magic Sleek formula straightens and softens hair, as well as protects it from UV rays, without using any formaldehyde or harsh chemicals.
