Profile

In this keyhole-sized suite, with its six blue-colored rooms,  clients can visibly witness the 25-40ish devotees, including celebs like Alicia Silverstone and Heather Graham, shrugging off their schedules as they shut down their PDAs and cell phones in the tiny waiting room. Owner Jillian Wright's menu of signature facials reads like a cocktail of science and nature: Clients get masked in detoxifying Oxygen Botanical facials and copper-based eye-lift treatments; clinical resurfacing procedures include microdermabrasion and dermaplaning. Wright says the potions' earthy elements deliver the on-the-spot results her clients demand but despite the chemistry involved, some of the concoctions sound good enough to eat: Live Green Papaya facials are designed to tighten and brighten the skin. While Glow's facials are the main attraction, the spa's offerings aren't entirely cosmetic. Licensed acupuncturists deliver sessions to alleviate PMS, seasonal depression and smoking addiction.
