GHP Q3 2021

GHP / Q3 2021 43 , Jul21268 Beauty, Art, Science For 14 years, Venus &VenomMedispa has been breaking the mould with its medical spas located inNewYork. Spas are typically known for relaxation and rejuvenation, but Venus & Venomalso offers a variety of non-invasive aesthetic treatments such as Botox and dermal filler injections, laser resurfacing and even coolsculpting, all available within an eclectic zen atmosphere. With its excellent reputation for delivering safe and effective treatments, Venus &Venomhas been crowned NewYork’s Most OutstandingMedispa 2021. We speak to Venus & Venompartners, Christina, Sheila and Denise to find out more. Through beauty, art and science, Venus & Venom helps clients uncover their ideal body image and embrace the way they look. It offers a range of comfortable, non-invasive solutions for the body, face and skin in the form of massages, facials, injectables, laser treatments, body sculpting, and permanent make-up, working together with the client to make them shine both inside and out. Partner, Christina Sirera has quickly become known for her art of injecting. She is a graduate of the Cochran School of Nursing and has continued to train with expert injectors in the US, Canada and Europe. Alongside her partners, medical director, Sheila May Gaughan, RN and vein and neck specialist, Denise Patriaco, Christina is changing and restoring the landscape we look at, one face at a time, having mastered individualising treatments. ‘Beauty, Art and Science’ remains their longstanding motto and defines what Venus & Venom is all about today. Christina said, “I’ve been specialising in Botox and fillers for over a decade and if there is one thing I’ve learned it’s that every single face I treat is different. It’s what I do every day – all day. Everyone’s face is unique and beautiful in its own way. My passion is to restore the elements that distinctly make that person beautiful. When I speak with a client, I am taking a very specific visual inventory of their expressions and how they look. I then capture and preserve how they naturally look, while at the same time, turn back the clock a few years. We create close relationships with our clients – built with trust, integrity and confidence.” Denise said, “We don’t just inject filler into ‘typical’ areas because we can. We look at the client, listen to their needs and expectations and then we come up with a plan and show them how we intend to restore the key features we see that will get the desired look they want. Our consult is critical to the outcome, our success relies on how well we listen and deliver the results our clients expected.” Sheila said, “It’s so important for us to manage a client’s expectations and make them understand what we can and cannot do. There are certainly times where surgery is the realistic option and we will say that, but when we can do what they want with the different options we offer, it’s a win-win for both of us. It almost feels magical – we have accomplished something that bothered a client for years, often times in under 30 minutes, with no surgery. What’s better than that?” So what’s next for Venus & Venom? “You know what’s hot right now? Cold!” Christina laughs. “Cryo treatments are a hot topic right now. Coolsculpting gets rid of unwanted stubborn fat by freezing it away. It works. No surgery and good results. But something even newer, that has been a gamechanger is coolifting, which has nothing to do with coolsculpting, but it does use extreme cold to blast hyaluronic acid into the face. The result of this under-10-minute treatment is diminishment of lines, lifting and overall rejuvenation with no down time. Anyone can do it and results are visible within hours. It’s a great event treatment and as a bonus, we have noticed that if you already have Botox and fillers, it is extending the effect. It’s a technology that was patented in Barcelona. Europe is ahead of us aesthetically and they not only know how to live the ‘good life’ – they look the part, too. Maybe it’s the coolift.” As if the variety of treatments on offer weren’t enough, Venus & Venom also has a Unique Boutique within each of its three spas in East Blauvelt, Monroe, and Nanuet, offering a range of retail items in the form of designer handbags, hats, scarves, napkins, flasks, books, jewellery, arts, belts, and more. The company also hosts Botox parties and women’s parties throughout the year, such as its ‘Single, SeXy and Savvy Nights’, vendor nights, information nights, live demos, coolsculpting events and more.
