An Editor Gets Lasered at New York City's Pulse Laser Skincare Center

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit Pulse Laser Skincare Center (New York City). Although I’ve had my share of laser hair removal sessions, I have to say this was one of the most hassle-free. The spa uses the Candela GentleLASE, which features the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD). The fact that it could treat a large area was a definite bonus over other lasers I’ve tried. I’ve had my legs treated in the past, and it certainly wasn’t painless. This time, I opted to have my underarms treated, a rather sensitive area, and was thrilled with the laser’s patented cooling mechanism. The burst of cool air definitely made it a less painful experience. Although I didn’t try any of the spa’s facial services, I was especially interested to hear about Pulse’s laser acne treatments. Knowing a number of people who have struggled with problem skin, it was reassuring to learn of a viable alternative to Accutane and other long-term antibiotics. Owned by three New York State dual-certified estheticians, this seven-treatment-room spa offers a range of solutions for various skincare needs.
