Exuding cool femininity with their white and gold decorating schemes, classical accents, ethereal music, and all-female staff, Completely Bare's four city locations are havens for women, men, and a large number of celebrities who want to bare all, and then some. The original Madison Avenue location was founded in 1998 by former IBM techie Cindy Barshop who, after combating her own "bikini problem," sought to develop a more compassionate form of hair removal. The result—and the spa's core service—is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, FDA-approved laser treatment that removes body and facial hair quickly and painlessly. French waxing, another CB specialty, uses a calming lavender-based wax. Clients can one-up fellow nudies by accessorizing their freshly bared parts with a Swarovski crystal design or an airbrushed tattoo. The spa offers a full menu of customized "corrective" facials, including microdermabrasion, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments, and Techno-facelifts. All locations boast special lasers for tanned skin, Epifacials and cosmetic dermatology. Eminence, SkinCeuticals, and Completely Bare's own line of products—including Bikini Bump Blaster pads for ingrown hairs, Completely Buff exfoliator powder, and Completely Clean facial wash—are used throughout the services and sold in-house.Bridal
