Under the direction of Dr. George Tsatsos, Dr Elizabeth Kurtz, Dr. Svetlana Zats, Dr. Mariano Rivera and Dr. Kevin Massard, the staff of Ankle N Foot Center performs podiatric and medical aesthetics services equally adeptly. Doctors can craft customized orthotics from patients' digital measurements, diagnose problems with in-house x-rays and ultrasounds, and help heal injuries with physical-therapy programs led by a penitent stiletto heel. Clients on already happy feet can waltz toward the medical salon, where aestheticians use medically sanitized instruments and safe, natural products to exfoliate feet and polish nails.
The aestheticians at Che Sguardo commence the 90-minute rejuvenating signature facial by dripping aromatherapy oils onto the back to ease guests into the pampering session and evaluate their skin. Then, Decl?or deep cleansers ferry away dirt, impurities, and lost keys hiding in the philtrum. Steam dilates pores, a massage relaxes frown cramps, and while the facial mask percolates, a skin savant hydrates hands and arms with luxurious lotions and balms.
