While many laser-hair-removal spas carry only one laser system, Albany Laser Spa keeps an arsenal. When consulting with a new client, the spa's technicians will evaluate skin and hair type to determine which of the FDA-approved systems will best suit him or her. Also, the staff is LaserFast certified to use the proprietary system that ameliorates the laser's sting with a pulse of cool air, so the technician doesn't have to blow on it.
Ceres Anastas is an artist with a new medium: the laser. For more than 20 years, she created art in the traditional sense, assembling mosaics and painting pieces that still hang in collections across the United States and in Europe. In 2010, she discovered in aesthetics another passion, this time beautifying bodies instead of blank canvases. After graduating from the National Laser Institute, she opened her clinic, where she depilates both men and women. She relies on the ClearScan laser, whose computer-guided handpiece covers areas evenly. In addition, its integrated cooling system makes the pulsating beams of light feel more comfortable on the skin. The procedure—whether it covers a small area such as the chin or a larger area, such as the dorsal fin—incurs no downtime. And, since each patient’s skin and hair type is different, Anastas determines the number of treatments needed on an individual basis.
Fountain Laser's skilled professionals help visitors achieve stubble-less skin by zapping hair follicles during laser hair-removal treatments. An efficient and precise computer scanner moves the two-headed laser across targeted zones, incinerating unwanted hairs and alien spies disguised as unwanted hairs while simultaneously diminishing discomfort with a sapphire contact-chill plate. An in-office or over-the-phone consultation before treatment allows the staff to answer any client questions about the procedure, as well as tailor each treatment to individual needs.
Trained massage therapist Deborah Carter uses her more than 25 years of experience to customize massages for each client using an array of modalities. She aims to help heal and relax the client using everything from traditional Swedish strokes to the firmer kneads of a Russian sports massage. Carter is also trained in the Vodder Method of manual lymph drainage, which she relies on to detoxify the body of impurities and excess water being stored in buckets on the knees.
Carter performs these relaxing sessions at Townsend and Company Salon and Spa, where wood-covered ceilings and exposed-brick walls give the modern salon an organic feel, and the dimly lit treatment rooms create a cocoon of comfort for clients to recharge or molt away their caterpillar shell.
