At Schlessinger Eye & Face, Dr. David Schlessinger goes far beyond eye drops and the Snellen chart. As a board-certified surgeon, Schlessinger offers three types of surgical treatments: oculoplastic surgery for instances of ptosis, skin cancer, or tearing disorders; neuro-ophthalmology, which covers all things relating to the eyes and brain, such as double vision or migraines; and, lastly, cosmetic procedures, including brow- and face-lifts and upper- or lower-eyelid surgery.
Supplementing Dr. Schlessinger's cosmetic procedures, his clinic's med spa also offers proven noninvasive beautification procedures. From within the med spa, his staff of licensed medical aestheticians battles the effects of aging and sun damage with chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and custom European facials that leave faces beaming brighter than a headlight in a snowstorm.
LaVida Massage's comfortable atmosphere and experienced therapists invite guests of all ages and genders to unwind and improve their emotional and physical well-being. During a one-hour massage, one of LaVida's skilled deck hands untangles back knots, helping to banish stress from the body. The deep-tissue massage accesses the deepest layers of soft tissue and targets specific muscle groups to drain wells of pain and soreness. Light- to medium-pressured long strokes soothe sore muscles during Swedish massages, and prenatal-massage maneuvers gently alleviate the discomfort associated with pregnancy. This LaVida Massage location houses several elegantly appointed private treatment rooms in calming earth-tones, and an experienced staff trained in both the science and art of massage and nurturing by especially paternal penguins. Locales stay open seven days a week and offer weeknight extended hours, so clients can squeeze some relaxation into hectic electric-shoveling schedules.
More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge—they earned the Long Island Press's designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen separate spa and salon locations.
Although hair is still the focus—stylists craft 'dos that reflect everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking—the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services and products by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
