If the human race ever needs to defend Earth in a space war using only its laser-wielding expertise, Bernadine Petrucelli of Defining Beauty will rise swiftly through our army’s ranks. A licensed aesthetician with more than 25 years of skin-care experience, Petrucelli commands an arsenal of cutting-edge lasers, whose beams can power laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and IPL photofacials to smooth away signs of age, such as the birth certificate taped to your face.
Petrucelli’s nonlaser treatments can refine faces with microdermabrasion and resurfacing peels, or even out complexions with acne treatments. To save clients the hassle of buying a cat to practice cat-eye liner on, she can enhance features with permanent makeup, lining lips and eyes or defining brows during a tattoo-like procedure.
Named Westchester Magazine's top Scalp-Tingling Experience in 2010, James Deagan Salon harnesses its stylists' beautifying experience to style hair and relaxingly sedate the head that holds it. While inside the intimate, boutique-like salon, follicles will have their forked ends fashionably severed to promote healthy hair growth and to put under pillows for the split-end fairy. Before the snip fest, hairologists will work with clients sitting in front of large, introspective mirrors to decide how to style manes in a way that most attractively frames faces. After a thorough wash, cut, and style, the approximately one-hour process wraps up by drying locks with the warmth of a blow dryer or the centripetal airflow of 150 chair spins.
Wielding the FDA-approved beams of a Candela GentleLASE laser, which was featured on The Dr. Oz Show, medically-trained specialists safely eradicate errant strands from men, women, and soon-to-be inconspicuous Sasquatches.

Fears of discomfort akin to legendary medieval tickle torture vanish as the GentleLASE’s specialized coolant spray system soothes away the smarting for all three zapping session. Though this Groupon only covers three sessions, multiple sessions are recommended for maximum bristle-banishing results.
If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy.
