Shobha does just one thing, but it does it impeccably: remove body hair. To that end, the salons' specialists use several techniques, including threading, sugaring, trimming, and waxing. Comfort is just as big a deal to them as smoothness. They rely on soothing lotions and other proprietary products designed for sensitive skin, many of which customers can also take home. And each technician starts at Shobha by undergoing an intense training program, followed by regular continuing education in the field.
Founder Shobha Tummala holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and is committed to superior quality in services, products, clients, and employees. It all makes for an experience that's about as comfy as hair-removal gets. Accordingly, the salons and their products have been showered with press, popping up on style blogs and in fashion magazines and winning honors such as being named New York magazine's Best Bikini Wax.
Nova Laser Center's goal is to combine advanced equipment with trained clinicians to seamlessly remove unwanted body hair by way of state-of-the-art lasers. Massiel Pena is the clinician?she's a New York State-licensed aesthetician who has trained extensively in laser hair removal procedures and equipment usage. And Cynosure?s Elite laser is the equipment?this advanced laser hair-removal technology works on all skin types and boasts duo-frequencies to ensure comfortable, quick, and efficient treatments. Massiel uses the laser to remove unflattering hair from men and women's bodies, no matter their skin type or whether the hair's growing from their underarms or from the underarms of the tattoo of their moms on their shoulders. Spider veins are also treated by the same Cynosure Elite machine instead of by covering legs in pesticides each night.
