Jacquelyne Rudy and Dawn Kalin, the founders of True Skin, take a holistic approach to beauty, as they combine their knowledge of health, nutrition, and yoga with years of experience in skincare. They hope each client can relax and discover their most radiant self through services such as facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, as well as rejuvenating laser skin-tightening and defuzzing laser hair-removal treatments. Geri Massott, the certified massage therapist and reiki master on staff, kneads away tension with an arsenal of bodywork modalities and an oversize rolling pin. True Skin's spa-like studio instills serenity in guests with deep cherry drapes, soft lighting, and coffee-shaded hardwood floors as they await beautification. The aesthetic haven is located between Chestnut Hill and Flourtown, so GPS users should input the town of Glenside into their friendly driving device or whisper "Glenside" to their flying carpet.
Dr. Daniel Westawski knows that having plastic surgery is a deeply personal decision. That’s why he does all that he can to make his clients comfortable, whether they seek a procedure that’s purely cosmetic or one that reconstructs a part of the body damaged by trauma, disease, or feral shopping carts. The double-board-certified surgeon’s specialties include body and breast contouring, tummy tucks, and Vaser Lipo, a gentle device that can remove fat from around the muscles to give bodies a more sculpted appearance. His artistry also extends to the face, as he surgically enhances features with face-lifts and earlobe repair or combats wrinkles with dermal fillers.
At Serenity Aesthetic Center, board-certified physician Anu Konakanchi, MD, master aesthetician Marijana Smajic, and a team of beauty experts work to prettify guests through a variety of noninvasive services. With their arsenal of aesthetic lasers, staffers help remove unwanted hair, diminish visible veins, and rejuvenate skin by softening wrinkles and putting imperfections under a spotlight until they leave out of shyness. Beauty injections stave off fine lines at the source, and medical-grade skincare including microdermabrasion, facials, and chemical peels help soften, smooth, and brighten clients' complexions.
Despite the presence of professional technicians, high-end equipment, and medical-grade products, New Image Medspa isn't a doctor's office. It's a spa where medically trained professionals strive to create a relaxing and friendly environment and count cost effectiveness as a top priority. Their treatments span from general spa services such as facials, massage, and chemical peels to med-spa approaches such as laser hair removal, blepharoplasty, or PhotoGenesis. They also oversee a slew of male-centric services to help guys achieve smoother, handsomer blue or yellow M&M shell.
The Pink Orchid MedSpa, an extension of the Women’s Health Network regional Obstetric and Gynecological center, combines specialty medical service and traditional spa treatments, all under the watchful eye of a medical director. The Swedish massage rebalances minds and soothes muscles with 50–55 minutes of long, light movements to improve circulation followed by deeper, muscle-loosening motions performed with Swedish meatball gloves, with 5–10 minutes for removal and re-donning of your spa robe. For visages in need of perking up or calming down, the signature facial tackles individuals' specific skin issues. Aestheticians first identify problem pores under a magnifying glass, whisking away whiteheads and blackheads and exfoliating dead skin before massaging mugs into relaxed, doughy contentment. To finish, the aesthetician coats the face in a mask of Germaine de Capuccini skincare products specifically chosen to nourish each client's particular skin type.
Dr. Z Med Spa takes its name from Dr. David J. Zweiback, a board-certified physician who has also been certified by the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery and trained by SA Aesthetics. It's this rigorous medical training that sets the med spa apart from other spas—rather than simply administering facials and peels, skin experts smooth out wrinkles and erase facial lines with cosmetic injections such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane. They also employ an arsenal of aesthetic technology, including the Exilis radio-frequency device for body contouring, the Fraxel laser for getting rid of tattoos, and other lasers for removing hair from the body.
