Skin Spa New York's seven Manhattan locations all represent the same business, but you wouldn't know it by stepping inside. That's because the spa strives to imbue each spot with the feel of its surrounding neighborhood, whether it's the bustling atmosphere of Midtown or the artsy character of Chelsea. Whatever the address, every studio brims with a mix of pamper-centric spa and results-oriented med-spa services using products such as PCA Clinical Skin Care and glo therapeutics. Private massages and full-body waxing complement the purifying effects of facials, which target individual issues such as blemishes and fine lines. Meanwhile, higher-tech treatments can revamp the entire body without a single incision, thanks to light-based techniques such as the collagen-boosting Laser Genesis, skin-tightening Titan laser, and anti-aging Photolight and Limelight facials, which remove signs of sun damage. A company-wide collection of more than 20 lasers can help clients rid themselves of hair by targeting and destroying the follicles that grow it. A plentiful stock of skincare serums is also available for purchase, allowing clients to keep their skin pristine at home.

In 1997, laser hair removal was in its infancy. Though the technology seemed to work, it often caused painful burns on the patients who sought it out. Devised by two physicians and an engineer in Spain, Depi4ever was born out of a desire to find a gentler, less painful hair-removal technology. Their choice was IPL, a regimen that calls on intense light pulses from a specialized lamp, which weakens and destroys hair follicles in their active growth phase to prevent hair from sprouting. Today, this is still the only service that Depi4ever offers, keeping their staff members from the distractions of the facials and face-replacement treatments of other spas to become experts in the art of IPL.
