Hailing from Brazil, Bela Brazil Spa's specialists keep both men and women looking their best with an array of beautifying services. Massage therapists work to soothe backs with hot-stone or deep-tissue treatments, whereas stylists sculpt the hair of women, men, and children. Aestheticians dexterously wax unwanted body hair from sensitive areas such a bikini lines, underarms, and faces, and manicurists tend to fingers with Brazilian-style manicures that focus more heavily on cuticle maintenance.
Masters of eye-arch artistry, the Thread staff will ensure all eyebrow-threading sessions proceed in comfort, cleanliness, and style. A friendly threader will carefully and meticulously pluck unruly brow bristles at the root using a thin string, resulting in a neat and quick trim of bushy fore-hedges ($8 value each). Unlike other harsh hair-removal techniques, threading is ideal for those with sensitive people peels, as it does not irritate the surrounding skin, instead focusing on individual hairs for precise face framing in just 5–10 minutes. While waxing requires that hair grow to a certain length for depilation, hair just needs to grow above the skin's surface to be threaded. Results can last anywhere from two to eight weeks, at which point hair will begin to grow back finer, less sparse, and less likely to elope with a set of persuasive tweezers.
No matter what part of your look needs a tune-up, the employees at Majestic Beauty Salon have the skill set to make it happen. Their service list spans the entire spectrum of beauty and pampering, from haircuts and manicures to massages and facials. Stylists splash hair with fresh highlights or banish it altogether with waxing or threading services. Eyelash extensions are available in a variety of lengths, some just short enough to create a fluttering frame around the eyes and others long enough to change the channel on the TV remote.
At Yuva Threading Salon's three NYC locations, the staffs of skilled aestheticians blend Western techniques with centuries-old Eastern traditions. Due to this versatility, the salon has grown to offer more than eyebrow threading, though the technique still remains their hallmark service and garners praise from outlets such as The Early Show on CBS. Their clients can also take advantage of waxing, facials, massages, nail services, and receive intricate henna tattoos.
It generally takes about six laser treatments to completely banish unwelcome hair, which is why you are conveniently able to combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions on one area. Those who don't want to go completely body bald but just want to thin out and lighten up a particularly hairy situation can simply get fewer sessions than the magic six. Upon your first visit, a clinic director will help set up your individualized treatment regimen to establish the frequency and number of visits necessary to achieve desired results. Use this initial consultation to ask pertinent questions or to swap apple-streusel recipes with your lasersmith.
Laser Touch Aesthetics' team of licensed laser technicians overhauls dulled complexions and flawed skin with a roster of laser treatments and dermal fillers. Using FDA-approved Candela, Cynosure, and Cutera lasers, they aim to reduce the appearance of acne, wrinkles, and sunspots, and strive to do the same to dimples and lines caused by cellulite. During laser treatments, skin surfaces are kept at a comfortable temperature thanks to patented cooling devices.
When they're not aiming state-of-the-art laser beams at unwanted hair or moles, staffers smooth out wrinkles caused by stress or using a porcupine as a pillow with Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm treatments. Before each appointment, laser practitioners perform test spots and assess skin and hair, so they can safely customize each treatment to their client’s specifications.
