Led by Columbia-educated surgeon Dr. Susan Lovelle, the friendly staff of follicle exterminators at Axtell Plastic Surgery eradicates unwanted fuzzy regions with a relatively pain-free non-surgical treatment, which uses light energy to target pigment inside the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. Take care of unwelcome face-fur with upper lip ($155), chin ($200), or neck ($200) treatments, or stun a would-be purse-snatcher with your newly non-hirsute under-arm ($400), bikini line ($450), lower back ($455), or lower leg ($455). Body bristle must be targeted during its re-growth phases for long-lasting no-hair-ness; Axtell normally recommends as many as six treatments on a given area. Fortunately, customers can double their derma de-furment by snagging two Groupons, ensuring their chosen body part will be rendered as sensuously slick as any well-margarined waterslide.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Jay Richardson and his staff remove the marks of aging on the face, body, and legs with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. During the free consultation that precedes treatments, patients chat with body experts to discuss beautifying options such as IPL photorejuvenation or chemical peels. Dr. Richardson, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, oversees noninvasive treatments such as laser, IPL and sclerotherapy to handle unsightly veins.
Visiting six bars in a single day usually results in a haggard appearance. But at The Body Bar, you can stop by six bars in anticipation of heading downtown for a seventh. That's because the staff specializes in beauty as its prime intoxicant, administering hair, nail, and other spa services at their respective stations. The Nail Bar gussies up fingers and toes with Minx adhesives or Gelish polish, both of which resist wear and tear for two weeks without the protection of fiberglass thimbles. At the Wellness Bar, massages soothe aches and the heat from an infrared sauna helps induce detoxifying sweat. Seasoned technicians strip away unwanted hair at the BeBare Bare, whereas the Blowout Bar’s stylists work with the hair you have, crafting quick new 'dos with washing and blow-drying. You can finish primping for a night on the town with a custom airbrush tan at the Bronze Bar, or head to the Beauty Bar for a makeup application, teeth-whitening treatment, or eyebrow and lash tint.
