Since the beginning of time, women have discreetly sought magic potions, elixirs and creams that attempt to provide or, at least maintain their beauty. Today, the market for beauty and personal care is saturated with products and services. Faced with this superabundance of offerings, woman of all ages tend to, more often than not, obsess over trying new products and visiting facilities they see advertised in glossy magazines. The results, though, can often be disappointing and significant percentages of consumers don’t achieve the anticipated results. Too many women end up with bungled procedures and great dissatisfaction. To be smart about beauty and personal care, you must know that selecting the combination of the right experts, clinics, techniques and products matters.
At the luxurious Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center, we’ve discovered an oasis in Manhattan where no deceiving advertising will derail you from your journey to perfection.
For our editors, the Lucy Peters facility is one of the best-kept secrets in town. The spa offers services that are truly unique, and their expertise defines their brand, their identity and what they represent. “At Lucy Peters, the experts know very intricately the processes we need medically to assure our patients they are in good hands”, admits Kinga Bagnowska, manager of the Spa located at 150 East 58th Street in Manhattan. The venue offers excellent treatments to eliminate unwanted hair on your body.
Internationally recognized, Lucy Peters started her medical engineering research more than two decades ago following a poor experience related to unwanted hair.
A clinician and dermatologist, Peters’ experience and research created patented techniques and adopted aesthetic solutions that together contributed to defining her brand name. Several years ago, Peters partnered with world renowned dermatologist, Dr. Albert Klingman (co-inventor of Retin-A) to create the Lucy Peters Smooth System, the only FDA approved permanent hair removal treatment. After Lucy Peters retired, the spa continued to thrive and is expanding its services to include new techniques for permanent hair removal, hair restoration, skin tightening, tattoo removal and more.
“We have a nurse that is unique, Yone Tierney. She’s been in the spa for 20 years so her knowledge is part of this treasured spa where you can get the best results possible. When you have to get FDA approval and encounter hundreds of regulations, you need the best doctors in the handling of your skin and body. It’s a wellness package like no other”, says Bagnowska.
One of the reasons that the Lucy Peters hair removal process is unique, is the fact that Lucy Peters developed a system that applies to different hair colors. It’s a process that is color blind, be it gray, red, blonde, brown or black hair, the system adapts to the person’s individual condition, thus removing effectively without seeing the hair grow back.
The clinic environment of Lucy Peters is very tranquil and professional. Owned by plastic surgeon Gil R. Altman, the venue is nestled in midtown east. It is a convenient building where you will get pampered and treated for the tailored services you need. “We make an assessment based on your needs, but the fact is that coming here once and applying hair removal just a few times, without having terrible consequences on your skin like in grown hair or other side effects, it’s a big plus for our clients”, concludes Bagnowska.
The Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center is located in the A&D Building at 150 East 58th Street, Suite 2901, N.Y., N.Y., 10155.
