This Astoria laser specialist deals exclusively in hair removal and guarantees permanent hair reduction. Bare’s reassuring technicians are certified as state-licensed aestheticians, electrologists, and laser operators, and each receives further training from owner Christian Karavolas, a practitioner turned laser guru who also owns Romeo & Juliette salon in Manhattan. Spotless twin treatment rooms offer cutting-edge lasers, one suited to light skin, the other to darker complexions, which are trickier to defuzz. Any patch where hair can sprout is fair game, even for those who have been failed by older laser methods. Bare Beauty recommends five or six sessions per area for permanent results, and clients who opt for a regular laser regimen enjoy perks like complimentary touch-ups between appointments and post-treatment cleanups.Let’s make a deal
Bare Beauty’s rates are about 15-20 percent lower than Manhattan laser salons, and it also offers promotional deals such as “buy five sessions, get one free” and discounts for clients who refer new customers.
