At Skin Solutions Staten Island, the main focus is, of course, skin, and a team of aestheticians works to clear it of the many epidermal issues that can plague it. Some techniques are more advanced, including an extensive array of laser services that treat anything from age spots and acne to spider veins and loss of elasticity. There are cellulite treatments, too, as well as Botox injections and permanent-makeup applications.
More traditional therapies include several types of facials, such as glycolic peels and deep-pore cleansing. Body treatments nourish the skin with seaweed wraps or honey-almond scrubs, and massage therapy relaxes muscles with Swedish, hot-stone, or reflexology sessions.
Updos, downdos, and perms: the licensed stylists at A Cut Above sculpt all these looks. Employing products from top-selling brands, they also dye hair and add highlights. They also schedule services for wedding parties, and makeover mannequins that fill seats at opening nights of plays that haven’t sold out.
Our Laser Center has been growing rapidly over the years from our own clients referring thier friends and family. New clients come to us after seeing drastic changes in our clients. We customize our treatment plans based on each individual.We are friendly and professional and employ only licensed professionals.
Gateway Center Massage calms tense backs with 45 minutes of soothing Swedish massage followed by 45 minutes of targeted pressure-point activations in a reflexology session. Massage therapists apply soothing Swedish strokes to extremities, slowly dissipating stress until bodies feel as relaxed as a seal slumbering in a velvet hammock. Light pressure increases muscular circulation while reducing fatigue, restoring bodies to factory condition. Massage therapists versed in reflexology then apply firm pressure to areas on the feet that correspond to problem areas, attempting to hot-wire patrons’ qi to promote whole-body health. After finishing the 90-minute pampering, patrons leave the serene spa environment feeling revitalized and energetic enough to challenge passing wrestlers to shouting contests.
At the helm of Wake Up…With MakeUp! is Barbara Strafella, a 20-year beauty-industry veteran who knows how to renew visages with treatments tailored to each individual’s skin ailments. After sleuthing around skin for impurities, the specialist begins a deep cleansing to rid pores of dirt, oil, and whac-a-moles. While skin gorges on the epidermal desserts that arrive inside the custom-formulated mask, the aesthetician’s lithe fingers dance a relaxation-inducing number across T-zones and necks. To top off the visage refurbishment, under-eyes don a potent vitamin C mask for 10 minutes in order to brighten the sensitive skin surrounding peepers and ward off optical scurvy.
