Smooth and Skinny is a fat-zapping facility where a staff of expert medical aestheticians uses cutting-edge, noninvasive technologies to reduce cellulite, leaving bodies slimmer and more toned. The med spa’s multitude of treatment options includes Endermologie and VelaShape systems, which use everything from light and radio frequencies to massage rollers and suction to target the deep-seated connective tissues that harbor cellulite and its various criminal accomplices. In addition to fat-fighting technology, Smooth and Skinny offers other beautification treatments including spray tanning and teeth whitening.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
