Estheticians at Spa Sydell recommend medical-grade skincare from brands like SkinBetter Science, Hydrinity, and SkinMedica. Start with a customized facial tailored to specific skin types considering factors such as sensitivity, hydration levels, acne tendencies, or aging concerns. A qualified esthetician will create a bespoke plan that combines suitable products, techniques, and treatments.
Then, take it up a notch with PDO Threads, a type of biocompatible thread used in non-surgical cosmetic procedures to lift and rejuvenate the skin. Made from a safe, absorbable polymer, these threads stimulate collagen production as they gradually dissolve, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness. Inserted into the skin by a healthcare professional, PDO threads offer immediate lifting effects and long-term benefits by promoting natural tissue regeneration.
During the cold season a 60-90 minute hot stone massage is calling your name. The combination of heat and massage techniques helps alleviate muscle eases tension, and improves blood circulation, providing a sense of relaxation making it an effective method for both physical and mental rejuvenation.
Consider CoolSculpting, a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells. During the treatment, a specialized device is applied to the targeted area, chilling the fat cells to a temperature that triggers their natural breakdown without harming surrounding tissues. Over several weeks, the body naturally processes and eliminates these treated fat cells, resulting in a more contoured appearance in the treated area. CoolSculpting is known for its ability to reduce localized fat pockets resistant to diet and exercise, offering a non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction with minimal downtime and noticeable results. Combining this treatment with a radio frequency device will optimize results and improve skin laxity. All of this, and more at Spa Sydell.

Work it out
Orangetheory classes are group fitness workouts where members can feel the atmosphere, which provides a great sense of community. Often, members find their accountability partners right in the studio, which helps to kickstart their motivation. Additionally, the ability to pre-book classes in an app to reserve your spot holds you accountable. The "Book Together, Sweat Together" feature allows you to share the workout class you just booked with a friend so they can join you in the same class, making it even more enjoyable and motivating to start your fitness journey this month. Orangetheory is also bringing the Transformation Challenge back this year, but with a new twist. "Using the InBody Scale for a complete look at body composition at the beginning and end of the 8-week challenge, each participant will be given a goal choice to concentrate on fat loss or muscle gain, which will assist members in attaining the goals they set for themselves," says Julie Santana, studio manager.
Going to the yoga studio when you haven't been in a while can be very intimidating. There are so many amazing online resources where you can find yoga for free or for a low monthly cost. Ahoo Sarab of Korsi Yoga recommends starting in the comfort of your home. Once you’ve taken at least three classes, you’ll start to understand how a class flows. Having this bit of knowledge will make your first time into the studio a lot less intimidating. “All of us started at the beginning. Many of our students had never practiced yoga before coming to us, and now we see them almost daily,” says Ahoo. Always let the instructor know you are new and set up your mat at the back of the class, so you can watch others, if you get lost. Take a child's pose or lie down on your mat as often as needed, listen to your body, and have fun with it. Korsi is adding a small juice and smoothie shop to the studio.
By assessing your skin and discussing your skincare goals, a qualified esthetician can create a bespoke plan that combines suitable products, techniques, and treatments.
