Inside Belle Allure Salon & Spa, the stylists stay busy beautifying guests with hair, nail, and makeup services. The homey space features zebra-covered chairs and warm burgundy colors for a relaxing oasis before indulging in beauty treatments. Facials, massages, waxing, makeup, and full-body treatments are also available.
Brazilian-trained waxing experts do away with unwanted hair inside Jaira's Waxing Salon. The staff tackles fuzz on men and women in locations such as faces, backs, legs, and livers. The salon pops with decorative touches that include bright red accent walls and zebra-print chairs in black-and-white and red-and-white color combos.
At Skin Solutions Staten Island, the main focus is, of course, skin, and a team of aestheticians works to clear it of the many epidermal issues that can plague it. Some techniques are more advanced, including an extensive array of laser services that treat anything from age spots and acne to spider veins and loss of elasticity. There are cellulite treatments, too, as well as Botox injections and permanent-makeup applications.
More traditional therapies include several types of facials, such as glycolic peels and deep-pore cleansing. Body treatments nourish the skin with seaweed wraps or honey-almond scrubs, and massage therapy relaxes muscles with Swedish, hot-stone, or reflexology sessions.
Since 1998, Bellalaser, Inc.’s certified technicians have cared for clients with a menu of noninvasive laser services for the skin and body. Using a laser armed with an integrated cooling system, licensed operators can help reduce or eliminate unwanted hair so patients can stop other hair-removal routines such as waxing or wearing a name tag while shirtless. Techs will also harness the power of the FDA-approved VelaShape laser system to reduce cellulite and shrink waist circumferences. Skin specialists use lasers to tighten and rejuvenate wrinkly skin, while aestheticians treat faces with a variety of non-laser procedures, including microdermabrasion, facials, and collagen masks. Bellalaser also carries a signature line of skincare products including sunblock, exfoliating body shampoo, and skin-tightening contouring gel.
Skin Science's team of licensed technicians helps eliminate unwanted fuzz and wrangle figures into more shapely profiles with noninvasive laser treatments. Laser hair-removal sessions bombard bristles with intense light energy, swiftly exterminating strands for long-lasting hairlessness. VelaShape treatments shower skinscapes with a profusion of radio frequencies designed to cause cells below the thighs, buttocks, love handles, or abdomen to suck in their collective guts and release excess fat into the lymphatic system, pulling the overlying skin into a pleasantly smooth surface. The procedures typically cause little to no pain, and, like traveling in a hovercraft, require no downtime.
At Mari Ann Laser Care, certified aestheticians wield multiwavelength Candela GentleMax lasers to tighten skin, reduce the appearance of spider veins, or play high-stakes games of laser tag with the doctors across the street. Technicians also use the GentleMax lasers to perform laser hair removal and deal with vascular problems, such as hemangiomas.
