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

Superlative Center

I have been working with Assara for about 3 years now. I am a dermatologist with an office in Midtown East. For laser hair removal treatments and laser treatments for spider veins, and sunspots, I regularly refer my patients to Assara. I, myself, had my first laser hair removal treatments at Assara Laser about 5 months ago, and just completed my treatment protocol of 6 sessions. Angela and Elizabeth were so great to the patients I referred, and to me during my treatments, that I felt compelled to promote Assara for NY Mag readers. Thanks Assara! To the persons reading this review, I give Assara my unconditional recommendation for you for laser hair removal, and laser skin treatments.

Improved self-confidence

I tried laser facials and microdermabrasion with Elizabeth at Assara and I was very pleased with the experience. Overall I had a great experience and what's most important is that I have proof that laser works – my skin is so soft and smooth, I look literally 10 years younger, and I’ve been getting compliments from my co-workers and friends. My sessions have allowed me to gain a lot more confidence in myself, which I consider a worthwhile investment. I'm thinking about doing laser hair removal on my arms as well now. Thumbs up for Assara!

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.

<3 Assara!

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!

the assara center has a large comfortable waiting area. my specialists greeted me in the reception area cordially, and gave me a consultation in the consult room. my treatment was conducted in a comfortable treatment room where i could lay down, and have my lower legs treated. i brought my ipod, and received my treatment. i would recommend assara for its courtesy and professionalism.

i enrolled in assara's unlimited program, which seemed to be the best package for me, given that i wanted to find a center that would treat almost my entire body. the consultation was very informative. I've been coming in twice a month for the past 3 months on my lunch breaks since i work in mid-town. the treatments helped give me confidence. i've been to the beach once now that its March. being smooth with no stubble anywhere really helped me -- i used to feel like everybody was paying attention to my excess hair. i think its worth it to have a consultation. even if in the end you decide not to do the treatments, you'll at least know that you're not alone with your hair problems.

I received a laser hair removal treatment here this weekend on Saturday. My treatment began promptly at my appointment time. I was greeted with hospitality, and treated in a professional manner. Also, I asked some questions about other cosmetic treatments. Elizabeth, the specialist performing my laser hair removal treatment, introduced me there to several cosmetic- and health-related doctors, who proved informative and helfpul.

Awesome

Thank you for a job well done. Once I did my research and learned that laser hair removal is the safest, best way to have *permanent* hair reduction for my body hair, I had laser hair removal on virtually my entire body and I'm very happy with the results. Depending on how many areas you'd like to have treated, the unlimited program may be best suitable, as it was for me. It's $459/month and you can treat as many areas of your body as you've always wanted. My technician was fabulous, all around I am extremely happy I went to Assara.

awsome

On behalf of a good friend leaving NYC, I thank you for a job well done. The primary purpose of visiting you was to remove a patch of unwanted hair.My friend received his 1st treatment elsewhere but got better results at Assara. And better prices. He thanked them & wants to thank you. Truthfully Assara Laser is a better place but hey, Cynosure lasers are all the same. It's the techs that make the difference. Good luck. If my friend returns or I decide to go bald we will choose Assara over other competitors in NY.
