Hair Removal in Chinatown

Select Local Merchants

At Legendary's Weaving Salon, candy-pink walls and hardwood floors surround hair-weaving masters and their clients, creating a lavish backdrop for stunning above-shoulder makeovers. Stylists decorate scalps with weaves made from virgin human hair in a variety of styles from all over the world, masterfully applied through full sew-ins or glueless blend-in treatments. They nourish strands with keratin smoothing treatments and quinoa-protein damage remedies, or add bold dashes of color with Elumen color conditioning or color-glossing lock-ins. As they await their organic facials or luxurious salon treatments, guests relax on a cozy couch with a complimentary glass of wine, using the studio's free WiFi to catch up on work emails or unseat the previous Foursquare mayor in a devastating smear campaign.

Q&A with the Owner

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

We often have a furry, four-legged canine greeter in attendance who personally ensures that every patient feels welcome and well-announced.

What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?

We consult with them beforehand to get a feel for what their concerns are, what they hope to achieve for the future, and what has and hasn't worked for them in the past. We thoroughly answer their questions, and our injector has a very warm, friendly personality helps patients feel comfortable in her care.

Breathe SFS was named in honor of the historical PSFS skyscraper, in which the Loews Philadelphia Hotel and its 15,000-square-foot fitness area and spa now reside. Though the building retains much of its 1930s-era charm, the gym space has been modernized to include 15 Cybex cardio and strength-training machines, including elliptical machines and stationary bikes with individual televisions. Guests work on their backstroke in a 20-meter, two-lane heated lap pool and loosen postworkout muscles in the steam room and sauna.

For deeper relaxation, head to one of five spa treatment rooms for an aromatherapy massage or a calming facial or mani-pedi. The menu also includes a Tuscan mud wrap that hydrates the skin and imparts the ability to sing Puccini.

Drs. Ryan Heffelfinger, Howard Krein, and Edmund Pribitkin share a distinction in their field: each holds the title of fellow from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Together, the distinguished doctors and their team of anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and a medical aesthetician operate Jefferson Facial Plastics on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. They focus their efforts on plastic and reconstructive surgery for the head, face, and neck, with services ranging from face lifts to hair transplants.

Jefferson Facial Plastics’ therapies also include noninvasive med-spa services such as facials, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. The doctors also perform humanitarian work both locally and abroad, including traveling to Guatemala to repair children's cleft lips.

Other services, such as facials, massages, and waxing, take place in four private treatment rooms; aestheticians also create custom-blended treatments inside a dedicated Spa Lab.

By performing nearly 40,000 high-tech procedures every year, the nurses and medical professionals at Look Great MD's four locations help clients fine tune their looks without invasive surgery. They smooth skin with everything from Botox to Reaction, a noninvasive device that combines radio-frequency energy and vacuum therapy to combat cellulite and firm up skin. Reaction treatments also target fat cells, as do CoolSculpting treatments, which kill fat cells by freezing them. Dr. G's physician-supervised weight-loss programs can help clients keep the weight off by teaching them how to reduce calories?all while still eating their favorite foods, not just looking at them longingly and imagining eating them.
