Nova Laser Center's goal is to combine advanced equipment with trained clinicians to seamlessly remove unwanted body hair by way of state-of-the-art lasers. Massiel Pena is the clinician—she's a New York State-licensed aesthetician who has trained extensively in laser hair removal procedures and equipment usage. And Cynosure’s Elite laser is the equipment—this advanced laser hair-removal technology works on all skin types and boasts duo-frequencies to ensure comfortable, quick, and efficient treatments. Massiel uses the laser to remove unflattering hair from men and women's bodies, no matter their skin type or whether the hair's growing from their underarms or from the underarms of the tattoo of their moms on their shoulders. Spider veins are also treated by the same Cynosure Elite machine instead of by covering legs in pesticides each night.
Inside Manhattan Laser Spa, certified technicians use FDA-approved lasers to banish unwanted body hair, reduce the appearance of veins and vascular lesions, and combat signs of aging such as wrinkles, freckles, and sun spots. Guests can also opt for laser genesis or hydra facials. During anti-aging facials, collagen and elastin production is stimulated to promote increased skin firmness, elasticity, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
With locations throughout four boroughs, Yonkers, and New Jersey, Skin Station Spa has become a popular spot with a staff devoted to all things skin and beauty. Licensed aestheticians work to help clients look and feel their best with facials, massages, and wraps, along with waxing and makeup treatments that complete polished looks. Friendly spa techs aim to create an environment that is both upscale and homey while performing their signature facial, during which a 24-karat-gold-infused serum helps to reduce skin inflammation and cover the costs of your next porch remodeling. The Queens location moonlights as a Clarins Paris Cosmetics Boutique and G.M. Collin Authorized Spa, so clients can follow a luxurious body wrap by stocking up on products for home.
Glamour Laser specializes in laser hair removal for men and women. Its techs use an FDA-certified laser to target each and every follicle, emitting heat and electricity to permanently disable its ability to grow new hair. In addition to removing unwanted fuzz, the staff also exfoliates faces with microdermabrasion treatments and clears clogged pores with deep-cleansing facials.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After receiving laser treatment myself i was really happy with my results and found the whole concept very interesting. I researched the science behind the treatment and why this form of treatment was so successful. I then decided to take the laser certification class.
What do you love most about your job?
It is nice to converse with so many different people everyday. The best part of my day is when a customer finishes they're treatment and tells us how happy he/she is, and what a good job we have done. Who doesn't love compliments right?
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The best reaction I've gotten so far was from a customer who had extensive laser work done at a different location in the past. She was very unhappy with her prior results, and pessimistic to keep trying laser treatment. When she came in for her 4th treatment she was raving about her great results.
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.
