We always get questions regarding the best beauty and spa treatments in New York. This is a personal tip by our Founder, Fê. She uses and loves BodyBrite NYC!
Back home, in Brazil, I did a treatment for hair removal that really worked for me. I did it in three different parts of my body, and now I need just to so a simply maintenance 1-2 times during the entire year.
In Brazil, these treatments are very popular, specially because we have good weather year round. Everyone is always showing some skin. Some more, some less (laughs), but hair removal is a bit thing.
On the other hand, we are very cautious with the treatments we do, since there are many that are too aggressive and damaging to the skin.
After intensive research, one of the treatments that I found was perfect (for me), was the hair removal with IPL – Intense Pulsed Light. It’s practically painless, specially in comparison to laser hair removal methods. Besides, it’s much cheaper too.
You do have to schedule a few more sessions than laser treatments, but in the end, the “math” is better. Much lower price, practically painless, no burns, not aggressive for the skin, etc. After just the first few sessions, you already see visible results. I did around 3-4 sessions, then started seeing the difference. I did a total of 8-10 and now only have to do maintenance once or twice a year.
So, when I moved to New York City, I wanted to find the same method I used back home.
I found it! So, the other day I headed to the Upper West Side of Manhattan to understand all the treatments that BodyBrite NYC offered. I really was impressed with it all.
They have more than 200 centers worldwide and in NYC they launched their first location a few years ago.
I’m a bit fan of non-invasive machines and treatments, and they do offer many good options.
A few of the services they offer are:
- IPL Hair Removal: $69 per session per zone | $49 – if you commit to a package!
- IPL Skin Rejuvenation, also known as Photofacial: $89
- LED Teeth Whitening: $99
- DermaOxy Oxygen Facial
BodyBrite NYC also has an exclusive partnerships like the global pharmacological skin care brand DMK. They offer a range of non-machine services from Chemical Peels and Enzyme Facial Therapies (a MUST try!), to anti-cellulite treatments.
Another partnership I got super excited about was with SkinCeuticals, since I’m totally and completely obsessed with them! Most of my skincare products I buy with them. Expensive, but worth every dollar, believe me!
They do have some of the best beauty and spa treatments in New York.
Note: This is not a paid post. I’ve been using their IPL Hair Removal treatment for over 4 years now.
While you’re up in the Upper West Side, you might want to check out a the famous Tavern on the Green. It’s a bit touristy, yes, but it’s one of the spots you have to visit once. Fore the dive-bar-lovers, head up to E’s Bar. You’ll find a pretty energetic crowd.
