Nabi means “butterfly” in Korean—a fitting name since this medispa has seen its fair share of transformation seekers since it debuted in summer 2006. The small storefront first gained popularity with a grand-opening Botox special but has since experienced a greater demand for its VibraDermabrasion facials and Frozen in Time live-stem-cell skin therapy (for which bovine cells are used to rejuvenate damaged skin). All facial treatments begin with a Visia Complexion Analysis, a computer-generated, Warhol-worthy photo profile that outs all surface wrinkles, sunspots, and clogged pores, then suggests the right plan of attack. Clients undress in one of three plain, spacious rooms where nurse practitioners administer injectables; a small team of aestheticians led by Dr. Spero Theodorou, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, does the rest. A few lemon-scented diffusers and scattered artwork make up the décor, but it’s the state-of-the-art equipment that arrests the eye: All the modern anti-aging tools—from Syneron’s Comet machine for laser hair removal to the Velasmooth for cellulite reduction—simply gleam.Extra
Nabi is the city’s only medispa that carries Obagi cosmeceutical products and the ColoreScience line in all skin tones.
