A new aesthetic treatment business is planned downtown New Canaan, according to an application field with the Planning & Zoning Commission. 

Element Medical Aesthetics PLLC will be located on the third floor of 80 Main St., a commercial building opposite Town Hall, according to a site plan application on file with P&Z.

Reached by, business owner Merry Thornton said she’s “excited to be opening Element Medical Aesthetics in New Canaan, as it is a lovely town with a fantastic community.”

Element “will offer skincare procedures with treatments such as Botox fillers, chemical peels, and more, in an environment reminiscent of an old apothecary,” she said in an email. “As a Weill-Cornell trained, board certified physician assistant with many years of experience, I look forward to providing the residents of New Canaan with a safe, professional, and welcoming boutique spa to focus on their well-being.”

It will open in February 2022, she said.

Element will include three rooms for providing aesthetic treatments to customers, each with a sink, and additional fixtures such as treatment chairs and storage cabinets, the application said.

Under the New Canaan Zoning Regulations, site plan approval is required for personal service establishments (such as hair care, clothing rental, photo- graphic studios, garment repair, tailoring, shoe repair, wellness activities) in the Retail A Zone (see page 74 here).

If approved, Element Medical Aesthetics will occupy space in a building that currently has three personal service businesses in Jaafar Tazi Hair Salon, Nail Page II and Calmé.

Element Medical Aesthetics PLLC formed Oct. 5, according to Secretary of the State records.

It isn’t clear whether P&Z will take up the Element site plan application on Tuesday night or at a later meeting.
