Hi All, I just thought I should update other readers about my great experience at Assara. To be brief, I am now hair free. And am only out several hundred dollars. Why I waited until the age of 31, I really don't know. I wish someone woulda recommended laser hair removal when I was a teenager. Or maybe laser hair removal didn't exist 10 years ago? I don't know. Either way, I'm sooooo happy that I went ahead and got treated. Thats' all for now! Ciao

Assara Laser is great for African-American skin, too. I've had laser hair treatments at other salons in the city, and have been deeply disappointed (these services aren't cheap, you know!), but Assara has come through for me. I wish it were a bit more affordable, but they do have great specials. The technicians and receptionists are very affirming and friendly, and it's a great all-around experience. Most importantly, however, is that the lasers WORK and you will be smooth and happy after your sessions!

If you're looking to try out laser hair removal, I recommend Assara. I’ve had 2 different people here and both were calm, friendly and totally attentive. They took care of my bikini and under arm hair. Prices were not cheap, but it was a good solution to hair removal.

Effective, but uncomfortable

The laser facial/microderm worked on eliminating most of my brown spots. One word of warning: I've been treated a couple of times, and after the second time, I always made sure to pop an Advil 30 minutes before my appointment because the treatment can be painful (the girl working the machine told me its because I have darker skin). The place is pretty clean and the people there made me comfortable, so that's a plus. I'm going to finish up the laser facial package I bought and I would consider going back in the future. I found this link, and my experience was similar to this girl's http://inmyprofessionalopinion.blogspot.com/2010/01/new-year-new-you.html

Assara Laser was a great experience for me....the service was excellent and the laser techs were so nice. I got my bikini line done about 2 weeks ago and still i feel great about the job. I recommend you try this place out. I also found a deal that can help out anyone who doesn't want to pay alot. Its at halfoffdepot and its in the new york section.....check it out!

Laser facials here are a MUST!!!

I think everyone should get laser facials regularly. Especially if you are older or like to suntan. If nothing else, a good exfoliation with microdermabrasion is important too. I used to go for facials where esteticians would squeeze out my pores and scrub me down which I thought was soooo 90s. When I went to Assara they used a microdermabrasion machine and laser facials machine and I was totally happy with the results. The technicians are also skin care specialists but I didn't feel they were pushing sales on any products or services.

I travel nationwide and laser often (I am a bear), Assaralasser is unbelievable and unbeatable. I am not a paid spokesperson . Besides a few laser techs, I know no one there. First I believed the price was just avereage. As time passed and the treatments ran the course I came in for several free touch ups Sure the technicians expect a few bucks tip but the smile on their faces are worth everything. There is never additional fees or bump ups as at other US locations. This place is for real. Try it and say Jack Daniels sent you. Ask for promotional prices. There is always a hidden coupon the girls can access. This though don't say came from me. Don't worry about pain. They have some awesome medicated creams to counter any discomfort. Finally, request them to stay open to hours which suit YOUR schedule. I go at midnight at times for a $5 tip!

OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!

I was referred to Assara by my doctor to help me remove excessive hair growth on my arms. As my doctor explained to me, laser hair removal is the most effective treatment currently available to reduce my unwanted hair growth. The other methods available are waxing and shaving, which is what I've been doing up to this point, and electrolysis. I was fed up with constantly waxing the hair growth on my arms, which was time-intensive and uncomfortable. Shaving was not an option because I didn't want stubble. Apparently, electrolysis is very good for permanent hair removal; however, the process is supposed to be quite expensive and each session would take several hours. I've had two sessions of laser at Assara and can attest to the effectiveness of laser hair removal. My arms are completely smooth in between sessions, and I have only 4 more sessions to go before they're smooth permanently. The sessions take only about 30 minutes, and I do them during my lunch break. I'm giving Assara and laser hair removal five stars.

I had micro- dermabrasion recently together with a laser facial. I'm extremely satisfied with both! The technicians at Assara are well educated which makes you feel comfortable with the procedures. I have such soft and smooth skin now and I have to give a big big thank you to Assara Laser for making this happen!!! I am sooo happy with the results!

Dear Will, You and I never met. Your technician Angela raves about you. I have been visiting Assara Laser Cosmetic Services for the past 3 months. Because of your referral discount and/or free session promotion, I always bring a friend. We love Angela (sometimes we are treated by Lisa, Miriam or Yossi) and always get great service. Who knows if anyone ever reads these reviews but if someone there wants a really good place to go to.........Assara Laser. I have been burnt many times at other NYC clinics and believed burns were part of the "package". Not true. Assara Laser never burns anyone - probably because of the special medicated ointment they use. Back to my compliments: your staff is the best and so is your clinic. No one should try any other place. The prices are great, especially now with summer promotions. Thanks,
