Lasers have many practical applications in today's world, from correcting vision and protecting priceless artwork to measuring distance and threatening secret agents. Use technology for the betterment of the body with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one laser hair-removal package at Skin Spa (up to a $350 value). You may buy multiple Groupons to fully remove hair from multiple body areas. This Groupon can be redeemed by new and returning clients at Skin Spa's SoHo location, their smoothing outpost in Midtown, and starting January 2011 at their new location in the Flatiron area.
Skin Spa dotes on epidermises with a variety of time-efficient skin-care treatments aimed at rejuvenating and revitalizing your skeleton sweater.

- With so much technology, The Skin Spa could feel sterile, but thanks to deep purple walls, quilted blankets in each room, and an abundance of iPods playing mellow rock music, it has a surprisingly welcoming vibe. Still, visitors shouldn’t get too comfy, since most treatments last less than an hour. – Faran Alexis Krentcil, New York
- I'm on my 3rd session for the underarm laser hair removal and they're great! Everyone is super friendly, very accommodating, and it's quick/easy to get. – jane l., Yelp
Skin Spa New York
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.
