Beauty experts say that it's important to make sure your dermatologist or med spa doesn't use just one laser to treat a wide variety of concerns. Chances are, that laser will do one or two things really well and probably pop a bag of popcorn in a pinch, but it won't effectively treat every skin concern. That's where the Art of Natural Beauty Center really shines. It boasts 10 distinctive laser machines, which can be used to enhance almost every area of the body.
One noninvasive laser shrinks fat cells and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Another microablative laser resurfaces faces and fades fine lines and wrinkles. Still another removes unwanted tattoos. Before performing many of these treatments, technicians use a Skintel melanin reader to make sure the lasers are set to the appropriate setting for the client's skin.
Such high-tech treatments likely bring to mind a stark doctor's-office environment, and yet, the spa-like Art of Natural Beauty Center relaxes with a mixture of candles, calming music, and refreshments. It also fine-tunes bodies with pampering spa services, including glow-enhancing body scrubs, French green clay algae wraps, and customized facials that start with face mapping.
Dr. Lionel Bissoon, Liondale Medical's resident specialist, is no stranger to the press. The man dubbed a "well-known society doctor" by the New York Times has been featured in dozens of articles and has appeared on such shows as E! News to discuss his mesotherapy cellulite-elimination treatment.
At Liondale, the author of The Cellulite Cure injects a custom cocktail of medications and vitamins into the body to help reduce the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and legs. Dr. Bissoon and Liondale's staff of physicians also treat various signs of aging at the clinic, tightening skin with Ultherapy technology, creating weight-loss programs, and replacing lost testosterone. Dr. Bissoon also posts healthy recipes on his Facebook page.
You might recognize Juva Skin & Laser Center's Dr. Bruce Katz from TV. He's appeared on Today to demonstrate the powers of the Picosure laser, which he uses at his clinic for tattoo removal. Dr. Katz has lifted thousands of inked-on butterflies, hearts, and names of bands you never got around to starting—and that's just one of the ways he beautifies his patients with lasers. He and his team also use noninvasive beams of light to contour physiques, tighten loose skin, and minimize signs of sun damage.
To complement the laser treatments, the staff offers an array of other aesthetic treatments as well. The staff performs cosmetic surgeries that range from face lifts to breast enhancements. For another anti-aging option, clients can opt for Botox, Restylane, and other beauty injections that minimize wrinkles and frown lines, leaving faces looking naturally rejuvenated.
Inside Antoinette Boudoir Spa's private treatment quarters, gilded drapes and plush beds furnish privacy and comfort for holistic therapies. Owner Clara Raykin styled the spa to resemble Marie Antoinette's castle, outfitting chambers with royal décor such as oil portraits, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, and chairs carved to accommodate modern petticoats. "You feel like you're in a spa in Paris here," said a reporter for Fox 5. "It's like a French powder room." The royal theme extends to the services, which aim to rejuvenate and pamper clients with the highest-quality products and technologies. In addition to standard treatments including massages and body wraps, the spa offers new therapies such as colonic hydrotherapy, ionic foot detox treatments, and ear candling. Employing organic products and years of experience, aesthetic professionals slough away dead skin cells with body scrubs and soften cellulite deposits with body wraps. Detox and general spa packages are available for singles and couples.
