Instead of offering quick beauty pick-me-ups, the staff at Premier Day Spa takes the long view—in this day and age, people are living longer than ever, which means that anti-aging skincare is more essential than it's ever been. To that end, the spa calls on imported skincare formulas from Guinot-Paris in facial treatments that take a proactive approach to halting the signs of aging rather than making up for them by wearing pigtails constantly. One such service is the Hydradermie Lift, which uses galvanic current to exercise facial muscles and help rejuvenate sagging features. Of course, Premier Day Spa focuses on more than just aesthetic results—clients can release tension and center their minds with more than a dozen massage styles that range from classic Swedish strokes to Asian specialties such as shiatsu and reflexology. The spa experts also perform detoxifying body treatments, refine digits with mani-pedis, and enhance faces with lash extensions and permanent makeup.
If it turns out practice doesn’t make perfect, Ethos Spa’s medical director, Dr. Hardik Soni, will be very disappointed. Dr. Soni, who specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, has performed more than 35,000 laser treatments over the course of his career. At his spa, he works with a team of plastic surgeons and aestheticians to perform even more, turning to laser beams’ power for a variety of purposes: minimizing the visibility of unsightly veins, tightening skin, and soothing acne. The med spa’s services extend beyond laser treatments, too. The team also instills clients with a youthful glow via microdermabrasion, Botox injections, facials, and making them sleep in glow-in-the-dark cribs.
Beauty is serious business at Allure Plastic Surgery Center, and the company's four plastic surgeons have been trained accordingly. Dr. Elliot Heller co-founded the American Academy of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery, and his colleagues boast board certifications and advanced training in specialties such as reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, and nonsurgical body-contouring alternatives. These physicians focus on keeping their visitors comfortable as they usher them through the surgical suite or into the office for outpatient procedures such as injecting Botox, exfoliating with microdermabrasion, performing laser hair-removal, or simply supplying ultra-flattering mirrors.
The Amato Center For Facial Surgery provides the full scope of facial surgery ranging from non-surgical facial rejuvenation and facial cosmetic surgery to corrective jaw surgery, craniofacial surgery and facial reconstructive surgery.
A graduate of the halls of health science at the Swedish Institute in Manhattan, licensed massage therapist Michelle Larson wanted to find an effective alternative to Botox for people who wanted to reverse the signs of aging in a completely natural way. She combined her mastery in re-educating muscles with noninvasive technology to create The Natural Face Lift, which lifts features through facial and neck massages paired with mild microcurrents that stimulate the skin more than those documentaries you keep making it watch.
Taking a holistic approach to therapy, Victory Healing Arts performs a variety of treatments aimed at healing the body from within while educating patients to improve their overall quality of life. Wellness massages employ a gentle touch and manipulation of the muscle's upper layers to trump tension and melt away stress from lengthy office hours and high-stakes karaoke competitions ($40). Like a disquieting sand sculpture of a spine, actual spines may morph and change with time, creating pain, stiffness, and homes for hermit crabs. A chiropractic evaluation takes a look at individual variations with the aim of improving posture and mobility ($75). Alternately, via needle stimulation of meridian zones delineated by ancient Eastern medical practices, acupuncture can ease pain and tension, and restore the body's essential balance ($60).
