Named for the Sanskrit word for “desire,” Trishna attempts to fulfill a woman’s desire to be beautiful by delivering beauty treatments and laser hair-removal services. Trishna’s collection of facials uses herbal ingredients, diamonds, and gold to delay signs of aging, help lymphatic drainage, and oxygenate the skin. The spa staff renders skin smooth with various types of hair-removal treatments, including waxing, threading, laser hair removal, and scaring the hair out by suddenly wearing a good Halloween or Dwight Eisenhower mask.
At Long Island Laser Group, certified laser specialist Deborah employs three different lasers, each with a specific target. For unwanted hair, the Light Sheer Diode device destroys hair follicles on all body areas and skin types. Simultaneously, the laser's cooling hand piece soothes surrounding skin to ensure minimal irritation and no downtime. Meanwhile, the intense pulsed light system can rid skin of blemishes such as acne, age spots, and wrinkles. For fungus-stricken toenails, Deborah relies on the PinPointe Footlaser, whose wavelengths are absorbed only by fungus, never the surrounding skin. Though treatments don't instantly clear nails, they pave the way for each nail to grow out fungus-free.
At Gentle Touch Laser Centers, FDA-approved lasers do more than just shed light on skin. When manned by the center’s certified technicians, they can eliminate unwanted hair follicles, smooth coarsely textured skin, shrink pores, and neutralize hyperpigmentation. As for unwanted spider veins, there’s a treatment for that, too; instead of painful injections or covering legs with handfuls of concealer on a daily basis, a laser can gently break down and reduces the appearance of the darkened vessels.
South Shore Center for Electrolysis's hair-removal specialists aim to permanently remove hair on the face and body using small electrical currents. Without puncturing the skin, the technician inserts a tiny needle into the unwanted hair follicle. The needle emits an electric current, which cauterizes the hair papilla so hair can't grow. Electrolysis is effective on all skin and hair colors.
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.
