The staff prioritizes client comfort by listening carefully to questions and concerns, and by outfitting their well-appointed waiting room with cushy chairs, a burbling wall fountain, and a choir of whales crooning lullabies.
Plastic surgeon Joseph Russo has spent the last 20 years adjusting bodies to erase the appearance of age with skills picked up during training at Harvard University. He currently directs the beauty-oriented crew at Laser Gentle Medical Spa, which employs laser and skincare treatments to refashion complexions and contours.

I-Lipo treatments affect change from the inside out by penetrating the skin with low-level lasers to admonish fat cells and smooth cellulite.

After graduating from the Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics, Jenelle Paris went on to become a certified eyelash extensionist as well as a MAC-trained makeup artist. With this experience, Jenelle has been able to establish Beauty Couture by Jenelle, her intimate boutique spa. At her beauty haven, clients lounge amongst vintage European-inspired décor.
