Isis Skin & Body is an MD-operated facility providing non-invasive treatments to improve skin and body. Take your pick from body contouring or laser hair removal for the area of your choice (see sidebar for a complete list), and achieve a dermis as smooth and lithe as an otter in a buttered wetsuit. With VelaShape body contouring, you can target your abdomen to tighten skin and reduce girth or smooth out cellulite on the back of your thighs. One of Isis's skilled technicians administers state-of-the-art bi-polar radiofrequency, infrared-light energy, and vacuum and mechanical massage to melt away inches of fat and cellulite without surgery, redness, or downtime. Opt for the laser hair-removal package, and deliver unromantic follicles a "Dear John" letter etched into the mantelpiece via a state-of-the-art laser. You'll get a five-pack of treatments that gently zaps hair from areas including neck, upper lip and chin, sideburns, and more. If the call of the beach often has you donning a swimsuit, you can opt for three bikini-line treatments instead. Maximum results are typically seen in five sessions, but with a lifetime of half-off treatments in the area of your choosing, you could eliminate toe and foot hairs to increase barefoot swim speed.
Named for the Egyptian goddess of beauty, Isis provides treatments aimed at acne, aging skin, cellulite, varicose veins, and pores that leak glitter. The state-of-the-art facility offers a calming, therapeutic environment full of plush white armchairs and chaise lounges.

Lasers earn their keep and daily continental breakfasts with work in three principle areas: routing unwanted hair, healing nail fungus, and helping to firm and smooth contours all over the body. To ensure topical treatments are safe for all skin types, Dr. Aboelata handpicks the products used in each service, which range from custom acne-scar treatments to eight types of chemical peels. Online forms dotting the company's website encourage curious visitors to start their restorative journey with a free analysis by identifying their skin and body concerns from a list that will help the staff to suggest a fitting course of treatment.
In tribute to its eponymous Egyptian goddess, the white and gold spa takes rich decorating cues from ancient palace-inspired aesthetics and the advice of style-blogging mummies. Columns capped with gold lotuses rise up to the entry hall's high ceiling, and gilded folding screens backdrop chaise lounges covered in bolts of lustrous, eggshell-colored cloth.
