Perfect Brows NYC doesn’t just remove hair above the eyes; the studio removes it from all over the body using three different methods. Its threading services uproot follicles on the face with a twisted cotton thread. And during waxing services, a thin layer of molten wax covers fuzzy areas and adheres to hairs before pulling them from the root. The third method used, called sugaring, is an organic alternative that removes hair with a natural paste made from sugar, lemon juice, guar gum, and water. This method is proven to provide less breakage and ingrown hairs and to leave clients with skin as smooth as a newborn dolphin. Each method provides a blank canvas for the studio’s other services, which include henna work and facials.
With six locations peppering Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, Precise Brows’ fleet of trained waxers keeps faces and bodies looking polished. Waxing banishes unwanted fur from arms, legs, stomachs, and bikini areas, and hairstylists shear off split ends from scalps and blow-dry remaining lengths into sleek shape. Faces fearful of wax can forgo the sticky stuff in favor of threading services available from the neck up. Taking a break from bristle, the staff can also enhance winks with eyelash extensions or etch beautiful black or herbal henna onto skin to ready it for a special occasion or camouflage regretful tattoos of Jeopardy host Alex Trebek.
From their salon just south of Central Park, the techs at Fifi International Nail Salon decorate nails with long-lasting shellac polish and the colorful designs of Minx brand nails. After a relaxing massage from the salon's licensed massage therapist, clients can solicit an aesthetician for hair removal techniques such as electrolysis or waxing. Fifi also offers house call spa services for special circumstances such as wedding parties or pets mourning the loss of a beloved bone.
It’s been more than ten years since the staff at Day Spa Gata saw the first glowing, relaxed client walk out their door, and it has since become a regular sight. That’s because the day spa offers an expansive variety of services meant to relax, beautify, and renew each guest who enters their tranquil spa, replete with complimentary consultations. In the massage area, bodies bask in modalities such as aromatherapy, deep tissue, and Russian sport massage, which tends to muscles before or after a tough workout or skirmish with the Ottoman Empire. Body scrubs buff away dead skin cells and stimulate circulation, while body wraps nourish skin with decadent formulas made from chocolate, dead sea mud, algae, or volcanic ash. In skincare rooms, specialists refine complexions with eight traditional facials and cutting-edge treatments that incorporate ultrasound, glycolic acids, or microdermabrasion crystals to reveal more youthful skin.
The FDA-approved Elite MPX laser at Avenue Laser Hair Removal Center has one function, and it does it well: laser hair removal. Clients who stroll out of the laser center's opulent Midtown building can look forward to shedding their unwanted hair within three weeks. Over the course of six to eight recommended sessions, clients can experience significant reduction in future hair growth, resulting in a boost of confidence while sporting a swimsuit at the beach or small-claims court. The Elite MPX works on all skin types and most hair colors, except white, gray, and red.
Beyond performing laser treatments, the staff also smoothes skin with microdermabrasion and chemical peels, helping clients to reduce the tell-tale signs of aging.
