Opened in August 2006, this basement-level beauty shop in the heart of Little Italy distinguishes itself from the Chinatown competition by offering only private rooms for its modest but varied list of services. Facials, face and body waxing, slimming upper body wraps and foot massages may cost slightly more than in neighboring communal spas, but its four treatment rooms and New York-born manager and head esthetician, Jennifer Wong, crack open the often insular Asian pampering industry to its share of non-Asian locals and weekend tourists. Brightly lit pink walls showcase an array of skincare products for sale such as Anna Lotan, Charmzone, Bioline, and Belnice. The popular (and affordable) 90-minute Microdermabrasionl Facial uses a diamond-tip wand to slough off dead skin, a high-frequency electrical current to close pores, and a final cooling algae or milk-collagen mask (depending on skin type). Also available is G.M. Collin’s Botinol Facial, a needle-free procedure with Botox-like results, plus more heavy-duty services like eyelash extensions and perms, permanent eyebrow, eyeliner, and lip liner tattoos, and mole and blemish removal.
