Welcome to Coccolare!
At Coccolare Spa, having healthy as well as beautiful skin is our top priority. When a client comes to the spa for a skin care consult they fill out a detailed questionnaire in which they are able to list their past skin care history, the issues that bother them about their skin as well as procedures and products they are interested in. This information really helps the consultant address all of the client’s concerns.
One thing that is unique with a Coccolare Spa skin care consult is the Visia Skin Analysis Machine. This innovative system will analyze a client’s skin and show images with regards to spots, pores, wrinkles, evenness, porphyrins, UV spots and photo damage as well as compare the skin to 100 other women or men in the same age group. The Visia is a truly invaluable tool to a skin care consultation.
During the 45 minutes appointment, the consultant will discuss the results of the skin analysis as well as listen to the clients concerns and then together create a plan to address those concerns. As a medical spa, we offer a wide variety of skin care products and procedures to help all skin types and issues that otherwise would not be available.
The root word “Ashi” means FOOT and “Atsu” means pressure so together they symbolize foot pressure. It is a barefoot massage technique using deep compression strokes that glide over the body. This creates a structural change in chronic soft tissue damage. Correct application will provide deep relaxation and stimulate the lymphatic system of the body. Bars are used above the head of the therapist for support and balance and lubricant is applied to the clients body.
Many women and men are making unwanted facial and body hair history, thanks to laser technology. Coccolare Spa has been a leader in the laser industry and has an outstanding laser hair removal system. With this system we are able to treat all skin types, even tanned skin.
Laser hair removal is most effective on pigmented hair. It will not treat blonde, white, or grey hair. A laser hair removal treatment is typically done every 4-6 weeks and most areas require 3-6 treatments. Multiple factors will determine how many treatments will be needed. Seven to fourteen days following treatment you may experience what seems to be re-growth of hair. In fact, most of these hairs are shedding as a result of your treatment. You should not wax or pluck your hair in between treatment, but shaving the area is allowed.
Waxing is the option to remove unwanted blonde, white or grey hair. Coccolare Spa carries wax for all skin types and can treat the most sensitive skin.

SmoothShapes is the new and innovative way to treat cellulite, safely and effectively, and achieve long-lasting results.
The Photomology technology combines dynamic energy (laser and light) with mechanical manipulation (contoured rollers and vacuum) to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Photomology utilizes specific laser and light wavelengths to address the physical manifestations of cellulite: less flexible collagen and enlarged fat cells. Photomology gently stimulates metabolic processes to minimize the underlying causes of cellulite such as edema, impaired circulation and decreased metabolism, to restore to a better state.
The treatment regimen is a series of 6-8 treatments administered twice a week for 4 weeks. The results will continue to improve for 3-6 months after the treatment course is completed.
The process is comfortable and no preparation is needed. You can expect the following during the treatment:
*Gentle warming of the skin
*A feeling similar to a deep tissue massage
*A relaxing and pleasant experience

There are many factors that can contribute to Healthy Skin & Aging. One is diet and exercise. Dr. Glass is an active participant and supporter of the Ideal Protein. Dr. Glass says, “The reason I like the Ideal Protein system is because I believe that the way to lose weight rapidly is to be on a high protein low carb diet. The Ideal Protein foods are all high protein, lowcarb/sugar, and balanced in fats. Diets that are high in sugar and carbohydrates (bread, rice, pasta) will cause the body to use the calories for “energy” at that time, but store the remainder of the calories consumed as body fat.
A diet that is high in protein and fat and low in carbs and sugars will cause the body to use the calories that it needs for “energy” at that time, but instead of “storing” more fat, a hormone called glucagon (a kind of starch) will be automatically produced by the body. Glucagon’s function is to “burn fat”. It will burn up any excess calories that you have just consumed AND begin to “burn up” your own “stored” body fat.
This is why lower calories don’t always count for weight loss. www.suite101.com
The Ideal Protein Diet is easy to follow because 3/4 of the day is planned and prepared for you. Busy people like the convenience that they grab a ready made shake, bar or microwave soup or chili while enjoying a fulfilling and tasteful meal. Meals consist of lean meat, salad, and vegetables that can be eaten at restaurants or at home with the family.
It may take a few days for the body to adjust to the decrease in calories and in carbohydrates (additional Ideal Protein foods can be eaten if needed during this time), however, after adjustment in eating habits, it is easy to follow. This program is also very specific about making sure that you supplement with the proper vitamins and mineral to avoid any forms of mal-nutrition.
The Ideal protein program will allow you to lose an average of 3-7 lbs per week. There are recipes and cookbooks with a variety of meals. The company is devoted to continual improvement, constantly offering new food items and recipes that will maintain your interest and help you stay consistent with the program.
At Coccolare Spa, we understand that dieting takes constant encouragement. We have a registered nurse and a lifestyle counselor who will see you weekly for “weigh ins” and speak with you on a daily basis for help and/or tips with the diet. We do periodic Body Composition Analysis that will test your weight, body fat, and lean muscle mass a you progress. We also have a Personal Trainer who will help you to develop an exercise regimen to fit your needs. If you have persistent areas of fat, Dr. Glass can do Smart-lipo in the office or Body Contouring Surgery (Tummy Tuck, ect.)
Aging is something we can’t avoid! A healthy lifestyle is important during all stages of life, but becomes even more important as we reach the second half of our lives. To some, healthy aging means staying active, eating healthy, and having routine checkups. However, for many, maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin becomes a priority as we start to noice gravity taking over and fine lines and wrinkles developing on our face. We’ve all heard people say they want to “age gracefully”, but why should we when it’s possible to ease some of the signs of aging. After all, when we look good, we feel good. Some of the most important treatments for aging skin include using a medical – grade skin care regimen of Vitamin A, Hydroquinone, alpha hydroxy acids, antioxidants, human growth factors, and sunscreen; laser treaments that generate collagen and treat sun damage; skin tightening treamtments, chemical peels, botox and fillers. It’s never to late to start practicing a healthy lifestyle and improving the signs of aging! With the help of Coccolare Spa and Dr. Cynthia Glass you can achieve a more youthful look! Call us today and schedule a consult with Dr. Glass or a skin care consult with one of our professional skin consultants.
Dry sensitive skin is hard to ignore. It can be uncomfortable and unattractive. A daily skin care regimen with a rich moisturizer is essential to achieve soft supple skin. Coccolare’s renowned Medical Esthetician/skin consultant, Amy Wilder recommends the following:
“I recommend TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream to my clients. It is a rich cream that has a blend of patented growth factors that help restore the skin’s moisture and it serves as a post procedure cream for traumatized skin. Monthly skin care treatments, such as the silkpeel, will polish and hydrate dull dry skin, leaving the complexion with a vibrant glow.”
