Assara distinguishes itself from other New York laser centers with its Cynosure-brand lasers, which sizzle off skin imperfections with a ray of red light. The no-frills spa is set inside a Rockefeller Center group medical practice, with a small reception area and blue-hued treatment rooms. Manned by techs with credentials above and beyond state requirements, the lasers work on stubborn follicles—though several sessions are still required for most all hair types—as well as spider veins and age spots. Laser facials treat imperfections above the collar, smoothing the skin’s texture.Note
The laser facial creates scab-like brown spots that flake off after a few days, requiring a low profile or heavy makeup in the interim.
