Dr. Wayne H. Wertheim, medical director of Island Medical Laser, throws roadblocks in the path of the rapid advance of time through custom skin and body-contouring treatments. He and his team enlist facials, injectable solutions, and laser beams to drive away wrinkles and keep age spots relegated to the hides of old leopards.

More than 32 years ago, master colorist Frank Commisso envisioned an elegant and contemporary setting where clients could relax and enjoy expert beauty services. Today, candelabras and flower arrangements add classic flare to the modern décor of Adesso Hair Salon, which offers both hair and mani-pedi services.
