Before she became an aesthetician, BioVital's founder was a dentist and then an artist, honing the clinical and visual skills that she's folded into her current practice. Fillers, facials, permanent makeup, and laser tightening restore youthful looks. Lasers also make themselves useful during hair removal, body sculpting, and sclerotherapy treatments. For continued treatment on the home front, products from Phytobiodermie address specific sets of skin issues with formulas infused with essential oils, minerals, algae, and clay scraped from the smoothest golems.
As a woman, Jennifer Mignano understands the popular desire to have nice skin, but as a former educator at the International Dermal Institute, she knows that it doesn’t come easily. That’s why all of her spa’s facials include the most up-to-date techniques, as well as mini skincare lessons to help clients maintain their glowing complexions between appointments.
Using Skin Fitness Therapy and PCA products, Jennifer and her staff can buff tired skin with exfoliating facials or reverse the signs of aging with collagen peels infused with natural fruit acids. To complement these medical-grade treatments, Jennifer and her staff are also trained and certified in wielding IPL lasers to reinvigorate complexions or remove unwanted hair from bodies and the family dog’s favorite chair.
Alberto Ferreira brings 25 years of coloring and styling experience to his namesake salon, where stylists and cosmetologists handle head-to-toe beauty services. Moroccanoil products accompany combs, scissors, and blow dryers during precision cuts and Go Well coloring treatments, and keratin products smooth over frizz the way a bulldozer smoothes over arguments when you give it as a gesture of love. Skinny massage weight-loss packages named after Halle Berry and Marilyn Monroe incorporate botanicals and seaweed wraps, and facials feature deep cleaning, and soothing massages.
Bellissimo Medical Spa & Salon jump-starts stalled health and beauty with cosmetic and medical treatments overseen by a team of certified practitioners. Succored by a naturally occurring hormone, the HCG-diet treatment combines HCG dosing and a low-calorie diet to liberate your body’s fatty hostages. Customers who would rather confront errant facial flesh can opt for a chemical peel—after a consultation that pinpoints each individual’s needs, the procedure uncovers a supple epidermis and paves over the old blemishes and impurities with a fresh layer of face.
It’s hard to say what’s more impressive: Dora Salazar and Maria Pana’s skincare knowledge, or their collection of passport stamps. The licensed aestheticians and paramedical experts have traveled across Europe, Brazil, and the United States in an effort to hone their craft, and it shows. Dora, for example, draws on her diverse medical background to clear up acne, treat rosacea, and lighten up hyperpigmentation with clinical-grade products. In addition to facials and exfoliating microdermabrasion, the team enhances skin with Perfector treatments that use nanotechnology to boost intercellular communication. This improved communication ramps up cells’ output of collagen and reduces the number of microscopic inboxes clogged with snail mail.
Dark hardwood floors and creamy white walls form the basis for Luxe Day Spa's tranquil environs, where guests bask in skin and body treatments that polish them from head to toe. An array of facials harnesses nutrients, organic enzymes, or high-tech LED devices to treat blemishes and reduce the signs of aging, whereas seven styles of massage melt away chronic tension. While reclining in a zero-gravity chair with a heated pillow under their neck and a toenail-themed romance novel over their eyes, guests enjoy relaxing pedicures enhanced by hydrating paraffin treatments. Meanwhile, specialists imbue or remove ink in the skin with permanent makeup, which brightens eyes, brows, or lips with smudge-free color that lasts for years, or tattoo-removal treatments that eschew skin-bleaching lasers in favor of invisible injections.
