Yin Beauty & Arts Spa's aesthetically driven staffers, who received praise for their skin-pampering facials in two separate issues of Time Out New York, consider their beauty-boosting establishment the nexus where "Eastern philosophy meets Western technology." The earthy environment their spa creates mirrors this sentiment with its rustic clay pedicure basins that bubble with gentle streams of water and dark wood cutouts that accent teal and ochre walls. While visitors bask in Yin's peaceful setting, a team of aestheticians wielding all-natural products soothe bodies and skin with a variety of services, ranging from relaxing herbal footbaths to complex med-spa treatments. Their menu embodies the hybrid of tradition and technology with its rejuvenating acupuncture face-lift, performed by a highly trained chess computer.

According to Vein Medic, an estimated one in four people suffer from some form of leg-vein disorder during their lives. These varicose and spider veins can be painful, and even if they aren't, they can make people feel uncomfortable with their appearance. So Vein Medic's physicians, including board-certified Dr. Michael Kassouf, who has been eradicating unwanted veins for more than 25 years, fight them with a variety of treatments.
Two of the most popular treatments include sclerotherapy and endovenus laser therapy. During sclerotherapy treatments, doctors inject the unwanted veins with an FDA-approved sclerosing solution, which causes the veins to collapse, die, and eventually fade from view. Endovenus laser treatments also collapse veins, though they require a laser fiber to be inserted into the vein. Both minimally invasive treatments can help patients feel more confident walking around in public in shorts, dresses, and figure-skating costumes in a few weeks.
Dr. Sergey Voskin, the surgeon at the helm of Vo'Skin,?is particularly adept at creating custom anti-aging, anti-acne, and anti-rosacea treatments using a combination of cosmetic and medical dermatology and laser procedures. He might recommend acne patients try a medical-grade chemical peel paired with a Smoothbeam laser treatment, which can help fight acne scarring. For rosacea sufferers, a topical skincare regimen might couple with an LED light or Vbeam laser treatment. And aging skin may benefit from Botox, dermal fillers, and fractional laser skin resurfacing.?
Dr. Voskin also performs more invasive surgeries at Vo'Skin, including liposuction and fat transfers. Still, these procedures only require a local anesthetic to numb the area and are less invasive than many other body-contouring surgeries, which require longer periods of downtime and a stack of coloring books so you have something to do while you recover.
By utilizing an arsenal of advanced technology, Laser-Esthetics provides its clients with nonsurgical alternatives to a variety of skin concerns. The technicians rely on the Candela cosmetic laser system to improve skin tone and texture by ridding bodies of unwanted stubble, spider veins, acne scars, or other pigmented lesions. During skin-tightening procedures, a laser system can deliver therapeutic amounts of heat deep into the dermal layers and help create a more toned look. The technicians turn to the body-contouring capabilities of LED energy to jump-start bodies' metabolisms and shrink stubborn fat cells found in clients' limbs, torsos, or shadows. Eschewing the rejuvenating powers of light energy altogether, Laser-Esthetics' skincare specialists also use a variety of Valmont products during nourishing facials.
