At Aurora Nail & Skin Salon, the beauty experts aim to maintain a comfortable environment by bolstering each service with friendly conversation. As nail techs lay hot stones onto feet or gently dab OPI polish onto nails, they swap stories with their clients and mimic the experience of having nails done by a good friend. Dermalogica products nurture and heal facial skin, and gentle Jane Iredale makeup products accent lips, eyes, and vestigial rhino horns.
Licensed medical aesthetician Phyllis Gasparri performs each facial treatment at Skin Perfect, drawing on more than 25 years of experience as she treats acne and wrinkles during services that emphasize clinical approaches to skincare. Among her weapons of choice are lasers—which she uses to reduce scar tissue and remove hair and tattoos—and exfoliation tools such as microdermabrasion wands and chemical-peel solutions. To keep up their progress, clients can take home products from SkinCeuticals and Cell Renewal Systems or purchase one of the shop’s own line of mini facial steamers, which sterilize and clean the face while discreetly opening envelopes within a 50-yard radius.
Massage Therapy is bodywork intended to calm and relax the mind, body and spirit. Massage can reduce anxiety, help decrease blood pressure and heart rate which in turn can reduce stress levels. The benefits of massage are never ending. Feel good about feeling great!
Experience the Touch of Hands that Heal.......
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.
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.
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.
