The soft glow of a rock lamp illuminates the delicate strands of silk ivy and flowers that wind along the walls of Ki Aesthetics treatment room, a spa oasis tucked within Hair Café. Aesthetician Jeremy R. Noye chooses products from the rows of Lucréce Physicians Aesthetics Research skincare during four types of facials and eight types of chemical peels. Each treatment aims to leave skin feeling smoother than a dolphin swimming in baby oil while addressing problems such as dryness or clogged pores. Clients can augment the already luxurious services with 10+ add-ons, which include a pumpkin enzyme mask and paraffin treatments, as well as diamond-tip and crystal microdermabrasion sessions. Jeremy also offers male waxing services for more than 10 areas including half back, chest, and full Brazilians.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
