A licensed aesthetician with more than 25 years of skin-care experience, Petrucelli commands an arsenal of cutting-edge lasers, whose beams can power laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and IPL photofacials to smooth away signs of age, such as the birth certificate taped to your face.
Petrucelli?s nonlaser treatments can refine faces with microdermabrasion and resurfacing peels, or even out complexions with acne treatments.

At his spa, he works with a team of plastic surgeons and aestheticians to perform even more, turning to laser beams’ power for a variety of purposes: minimizing the visibility of unsightly veins, tightening skin, and soothing acne. The med spa’s services extend beyond laser treatments, too. The team also instills clients with a youthful glow via microdermabrasion, Botox injections, facials, and making them sleep in glow-in-the-dark cribs.
Certified laser professional Marie Giacovas draws on more than a decade of experience with Candela technology to permanently reduce unwanted hair at Westchester Laser Associates. She and her laser-certified partner, Joanne Santorelli, target follicles with Candela's FDA-approved GentleLase system, creating a sensation akin to the rubber-band snaps commonly used in armed thumb wars. Treatments take permanent effect after four to eight sessions, although hair's coarseness and thickness may begin to dwindle after fewer sessions.
