Sophia Brodsky, Sophia’s Salon and Spa owner and aesthetician, exfoliates faces with microdermabrasion treatments to reveal brighter skin that attracts exponentially more admiring glances. The handheld Bella instrument, which propels fine crystals, buffs away 30% of the topmost epidermal layer and the prickly exteriors of pineapples that customers bring in. With each 45-minute session, the treatment aims to promote circulation, diminish fine lines, and shed dead skin. Afterward, skin is left supple, complexions are left more even, and faces feel as refreshed as a swimmer doing laps in a pool of lemon juice.
Sophia’s Salon & Spa
Formally trained in Europe and licensed as both a cosmetologist and electrologist, owner Sophia Brodsky has snipped hair, polished nails, and hydrated faces for nearly 40 years. Under her direction, Sophia’s team uses high-end instruments, such as the Bella BD II-ASP, during microdermabrasion treatments. To help clients keep their faces smooth enough to attract handsome pizza-delivery people, Sophia dispenses products from lines such as Dead Sea Premier, Shira Esthetics, and Dinur.
