Eyebrows are meticulously shaped into graceful, well-defined arches during each session at Pretty Threading. Here, the stylists pull hair from delicate facial areas using a single length of thread, in a process that’s less tedious than using tweezers, neater than using wax, and more precise than using a magnifying glass to burn off each hair individually under the hot sun. Keeping with ancient Indian tradition, stylists also decorate hands with intricate henna and glitter designs, as clients watch them work in mosaic-framed mirrors hung on mottled bronze walls.
At Pure Skin Aesthetics and Hair Removal, aestheticians wield all-natural sugar paste as they depilate sensitive areas of the body. Sugaring?a method of hair removal that, like the phrase "lol," dates back thousands of years?is different than standard waxing. Rather than adhering to the skin, the sugaring paste only latches onto hair. This feature, in addition to the fact that hair is removed in the direction of growth, can reduce ingrown hairs, infections, and damage to the epidermis. Pure Skin provides this hair-removal service for both women and men.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.

Massage therapist Liz Post uses massage to improve both physical and mental health, drawing upon the healing techniques of chiropractic care, spa sessions, and sports medicine. She adjusts her treatments depending on customers' needs, offering deep, intense strokes for athletes detoxifying after a hard workout or light strokes to accommodate moms-to-be. In between appointments, she conducts sugaring sessions to remove unwanted hair, leaving skin as smooth as the bald little heads of every doll that ever got in her way.
Sugaring—the Egyptians have been doing it since 1900 BC. The hair-removal method uses a material made from sugar, lemon juice, and water that, when applied, doesn’t stick to skin cells, taking only hair with it when removed. At Sugaring Studio, the expertly trained staff understands the benefits of using their organic-skincare lineup. Sugaring Studio also offers lash extensions for those wanting to add a little something to the top.
