Under the supervision of Edward Gindi, MD, trained technicians at Laser Light MD help clients feel more confident in their own skin. Using a Soprano XL laser designed with a pain-free, hair-free philosophy, the techs target stubborn strands with laser hair-removal treatments. They also aim IPL beams at acne and uneven pigmentation during treatments that can reduce sun damage, scars, and age spots. For optimal comfort during any procedure, clients can request a male or female tech or a laser that sings lullabies.
At The Wax Room, an experienced aesthetician launches offensive strikes against stubble using quality hard and soft wax. By focusing solely on waxing treatments, she has cultivated expertise in Brazilian bikini lines and eyebrow shaping. All treatments are performed within a single room as private as a desert island surrounded by killer watchdolphins. The beautifier pampers skin with after-care products from Serious Serum to diminish inflammation and angry bumps. Results last up to eight weeks, at which point hair resurfaces softer and finer in texture.
Not many 12-year-olds run their own beauty business out of their home. But this was the case for Suna Serpin](http://www.sunasspa.com/About.html), whose burgeoning interest in skincare inspired her to extend beauty services to her family and friends before she was even a teenager. Years after getting married and raising children, Suna returned to the business, this time receiving her license in aesthetics and training with the American Laser Center. She cites Jane Wurwand, the founder of renowned skincare line Dermalogica, as the inspiration to open her own spa, where she now lavishes clients with services such as facials, laser hair removal, and body scrubs. She also happily offers up Dermalogica products, which retain their soothing qualities from earth-culled ingredients such as plants and the tears of woodland nymphs.
House of Hair owner Lisa Duprey and her team of beauty specialists greet women, men, and children with open arms and complimentary consultations before they polish exteriors with skin, hair, massage, and nail treatments.

Meanwhile, skin experts armed with Aveda products customize the botanical-based elixirs to complement specific skin types during six facial treatments. For long-term beauty enhancement, lash extensions fill out the eyelid's preexisting tendrils for weeks of lush blinks, and permanent-makeup artists tattoo colorful ink on the eyes, lips, and lids to help define features and keep clients from being trailed by motherless marble busts.
At offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn, technicians use the DDC PolyLase LP to permanently purge unwanted hair. The DDC PolyLase LP bundles an Alexandrite laser and an NdYAG laser into one piece of equipment that can remove hair of almost any type, whether it’s light, dark, thin, thick, or able to stretch like a rubber band. Because their focus is so specific, the Studios know their equipment well and are glad to share their knowledge with clients in person and online via an FAQ page and a factsheet. Although they specialize in hair removal, technicians also train their laser beams on faces to resurface complexions for a fresher, younger appearance.
