LaCarezza - A Beauty Haven

Southampton - Nestled in a brick building in the heart of Southampton Village, LaCarezza Salon Da Spa is a bustling spot for beauty lovers. A complete salon primps and beautifies while a quiet oasis just steps from the street, the spa, sits waiting for clients looking to indulge.

LED therapy and Microdermabrasion combine with radiant results.

Unlike many spas in the Hamptons, LaCarezza is known for its "day spa" approach - the idea that you can drop in for a quick lunch massage or after work scrub. Of course, a full-day "Day of Beauty" package is available including a facial, body scrub, massage, spa manicure, spa pedicure, hair finishing, make-up application, and lunch. The six-hour long day will leave you looking and feeling fabulous. Pampering the gents, LaCarezza offers a half-day of "Gentleman's Wellness" that includes a full-body massage, manicure, pedicure, haircut, and style.

Known for their facials for both men and women the professionals at LaCarezza recently combined two of the most advanced skin treatments to give their clients a glow like no other - beginning the treatment with Microdermabrasion. Each treatment at LaCarezza begins with a custom skin analysis by a skilled esthetician. Now don't fret if you've heard the horror stories about harsh processes, this is a gentle, refined treatment designed to lightly remove dull surface skin. Micro-crystals exfoliate the skin at low-pressure massaging away hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne scarring. The process is less aggressive than a loofah and you can leave after the treatment and enjoy your day as opposed to having to hide for a week to recover like after a chemical peel. The results are visible instantly. What more could you ask for? Crystal-free dermabrasion is available using a diamond-embedded tip and the results are similar.

Next comes the LED (Light Emitting Diode) Light Therapy, the latest in skin care technology. While light therapy is nothing new, this process uses all of the therapeutic benefits of the body's photobiochemical reaction, similar to plant photosynthesis, for beauty's sake. This treatment is very high-tech and proven by the team at NASA to promote wound healing and human tissue growth, key factors in anti-aging treatments. The feeling is warm and comforting, nothing harsh here. The professionals at LaCarezza explain, "The energy delivered by the LEDs enhance cellular metabolism, accelerates the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen - the foundation of healthy and smooth skin." A light massage with some of the finest products in the Hamptons completes the treatment.

This powerful combination of dermabrasion and LED therapy removes dead skin cells, polishes, and gets under the skin to promote inner-radiance. The treatments are non-invasive, completely painless, safe for all skin types, and best of all there is no down time. LaCarezza offers a host of services including aromatherapy facials, teen facials that promote deep pore cleansing, airbrush tanning, and a variety of massage packages.
