Be wowed by SLR's facial Treatments
By blainebeauty on 8/5/2008
You've never experienced a real facial until you've encountered the skilled hands of Carole Burns. SheÂ’s the gold standard of Aestheticians. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and very meticulous. She has an uncanny ability to make all her clients feel very comfortable and at ease. If you are looking for a fluff facial this is not the place for you. I was very skeptical about having just anyone touch my face because as African American, my skin is prone to scaring and after trying a few other well-known spas I thought Â“If I wanted someone to rub hot cream on my face I could do that at home.Â” I was very disappointed to say the least!... But after meeting Carole 5 years ago, clear, healthy, radiant and flawless skin is what I got after just one treatment. I've been hooked ever since and I keep going back for more because I get GREAT RESULTS!!

the facials at SLR aren't pampering and coddling like at some day spas, but they are highly effective. they are experts at extraction, really digging all of the garbage out from underneath the skin, leaving the skin glowing and healthy. highly competent.
Skin Laser Rejuvenation - The Way to Go For Skin Care!
By ealilcea1 on 9/11/2009
I've had the pleasure of being Carol's client since 2003 and have to say she is truly a miracle worker! Over-the-counter products made me break out terribly and scarred my skin. I was at my wits end when a co-worker recommended Carol to me. From the initial consultation, I felt I was in great hands. I've been going to Carol ever since. She has take such good care of my skin. I get compliments wherever I go. I recommend Carol to anyone and everyone, young and old, male and female. What I appreciate most, is that if Carol believes a referral to a dermatologist is needed because the treatment required is beyond her level of expertise, she makes the recommendation and does not attempt to treat the condition herself. The prices for all services provided are very reasonable. Carol's staff is extremely professional and always provides you with service and a smile.
Laser Hair Removal
By vanessaC on 10/22/2009
I made the decision to laser remove the hair under my arms and SLR has been a great place to do it. The location is convenient to reach, extremely clean, and welcoming. The staff is effusively kind and treats you with personal care and concern. They turned what was initially a scary proposition into a pleasant experience, with little to no pain. I am very happy with my results. I highly recommend this place.

I love the IPL treatment! It is simply amazing. The machine that use flashes of bright lights to completely restore your skin from underneath first. I went in for 2 treatments, a month apart, and noticed immediate results after the first treatment. A lot of the redness from my rosacea was lightened, the broken capillaries around my nose and all the sunspots that I had got from the summer were completely gone! My skin is incredibly soft as well. I highly recommend this place!!
nothing better in town!

Do you want excellent skin care, a friendly staff, good prices, no waiting and above all, a CLEAN environment? Go to Skin Laser Rejuvenation at W 21st Street. The owner Carole Burns is not only very experienced, friendly and caring, but professional, fast and efficient as well. So is her assistant Katherine Amato. I never have to wait, always get my money worth and feel pampered and rejuvenated when I walk out. SLR offers effective(!) laser hair removal treatments, IPL, microdermabrasion to name a few. As a performer I need to look good and there is no other place I could recommend higher! SLR makes me look good and feel good! On top of all this, there is Shawn-Damion Brown, the Operations Manager, professional and charming! Go SLR!
BEWARE this woman ruined my face - other reviews seem FAKE
By sweetbabyjesus on 3/3/2010
i had ONE ipl treatment after going in for a facial. instead, i was sat down and given my "consultation," or hard sell for ipl due to some very minor broken capillaries. i'm 31 and have always been told i have great skin and look like i'm in my early 20s. w/i wks i noticed a change in texture of my skin. as months went by so did all the volume in my face. it has been traumatic to say the least. these other reviews seem awfully suspicious too. i remember reading at least two other negative ones w/ experiences like mine and they are now gone. wtf?? anyway, google IPL and FAT LOSS b/f ever considering one of these treatments. i was NOT planning on doing this and just got talked into it. the biggest mistake of my life. i now look 10-20 yrs older.
A FOOL IN LOVE!!!!!!
By RebeccaChu on 4/2/2010
I relented to modern technology when I read about how lasers had made such a difference in beauty treatments and it took me some time to decide to take the plunge, so to speak. After all. I only have 1 face. I decided to come to Skin Laser Rejuvenation, because when I called I received an excellent explanation of the services and was asked detailed questions. My impression that they were careful and thorough was reinforced when I saw the facility and met the owner, Carole. I saw the dedication she and her staff have to excellence and the deep knowledge she embodied on laser technology and it's application to different skin types. My own personal experience was superb and I can't say enough good things about them. I highly recommend this establishment.
SMOOTH..........LIKE A BABYS BOTTOM
By ChristianAu on 4/2/2010
At Skin Laser Rejuvenation I was greeted by a very sweet guy at the front desk who asked me if he could get me anything (kleenex, tea, water). I waited about five minutes in a lovely waiting area and was taken in to have the most informative consultation out of all the places I visited. All of the lasers and procedures were thoroughly explained to me, and I decided to sign up for a package of 3 treatments for my legs, Brazilian bikini, and underarms. I had a 'patch' test so that I could experience what the laser felt like, and to see how my skin reacted. Although I was very anxious, the aesthetician was able to answer more of my questions, and calm me down before the treatment. SLR is amazing!!!!!!

I started going to Carol's office about 6 years ago - I can't imagine going anywhere else. Carol is a miracle worker - I was an adult with acne making me look and feel like a teenager. She cleared up my acne, and now I just go back for mini facials. When I was getting married, I went for a mini, so I could look and feel like a princess on that special day! I also created converts of several friends, who are now also regulars! Thanks Carol for your hard work, professionalism and great results!
