Or play hookey and languish your relaxation time with a 60-minute Swedish massage ($85), which uses long and smooth strokes with gentle to medium pressure.

Ann Marie is a hair artist and a veteran of the beauty industry. The owner of Salon 862 for more than 17 years, she has surrounded herself with other stylists, nail artists, and skin care specialists, who combine to have more than 25 years of experience in their own respective fields. A stylist will share this expertise with a free hair consultation, where they'll work with the client to determine a haircut and style, color or foil, or keratin treatment that best helps them meet their image goals. The salon's aesthetician likewise offers free skin consultations, and follows up with appropriate treatments using medical-grade skincare products from the Image line. These treatments include facials that address acne and signs of aging such as wrinkles and dinosaur scratches. More advanced treatments, like photofacials and laser hair removal, are also available and administered by certified technicians.
As a nurse working in intensive care, Antonette "Toni" Dardeno, an RN and certified medical laser safety officer who was a contributing author in CMLSOs' Best Practices in Medical Laser Safety, saw firsthand how advanced medical equipment could change lives. It wasn’t until her personal experience with a dermatologist, however, that she understood the effects lasers could have on the skin. Though this experience became the catalyst for her interest in skincare and medical-grade lasers, it was her passion to help others that led her to establish Laser Enhanced Therapies.
At this laser-centric med spa, Toni and medical adviser Dr. Elliot Lach treat patients with two types of advanced Candela lasers designed to effectively eliminate unwanted hair and leg veins and firm aging skin on a variety of epidermal types. A trained laser technician or nurse reaches for the GentleLase 755 system for pale complexions, while employing GentleYAG 1064 system for those with a darker skin tone. In addition to laser treatments, Toni and crew also clear complexions with facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, which they enhance with paraben-free MyChelle Dermaceuticals, IMAGE, and Aubrey Organics products.
