Wrapped in beige and russet tones, SoHo Urban Wax's private rooms cloister both male and female clients in warm serenity as expert aestheticians uproot unwanted hairs with dexterous digits and utmost discretion. Hard wax seizes strands from sensitive areas such as underarms, the upper lip, and funny bones, while warmer soft-wax strips lift fuzz from more durable spots, such as wool coats. While patrons perch on the red-leather banquette in the studio's waiting room, they can sip a proffered cup of coffee or gargle with hot tea while scanning black-and-white photos of the city.
Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics' toning technicians wield the radio-frequency and optical-energy-powered ReFirme skin-tightening technology in five 45-minute sessions that target fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles. Before starting treatment, clients meet with staffers to discuss their medical histories, learn about expected results from the tightening process, and trade shortbread-cookie recipes. The elōs technology of the ReFirme system uses light energy proven safe for all skin types to iron out face or neck creases, and provides contact cooling on the surface to increase comfort. Customers can opt to smooth crinkled areas on their face wrappers and maintain their necks' sleek appearances, or choose to focus on face tightening alone over the course of five treatments.
