I've been getting Laser Hair Removal treatments here for a while. They are definitely one of the better laser places in nyc. I always can get an appointment. The Front desk staff is friendly and accommodating and Laura, my technician is great! Definitely recommend.
I can see that most of the reviews of Skintology Skin and Laser Center in New York CIty are FAKE, I'm glad I've read them as I was considering to have IPL sessions with them

I had lash extensions applied last week, and I must warn you that they are definitely not worth it! First, they are not much different from the individual lashes you can buy at the drug store for $5, and at a price of $400 you will kick yourself after (I have already done so). The process itself takes at least 3 hours, and I had hoped that once I got up from the table I would be wowed with the results. Not so ... In fact I was extremely disappointed with the finished look. It doesn't look terrible, but I could have applied the lashes from the drugstore myself with not much of a different outcome. The service at Skintology is excellent ... the technicians are very sweet and professional, and I haven't tried any other services there, but as far as the eyelash extensions go, do not waste your time or your money! As I originally thought, this is a fad that will disappear as quickly as it came ... I would not recommend this even if you have the money and time to spare.
Signed up for discount hair removal services. Service was great. Environment lovely and the staff helpful and responsive. Services worked. Professional and well managed.
I wasted a lot of money at this place. I went to remove my tattoo and it hurt terribly and there was no response. I switched to a doctor's office where they used a local anesthetic which was much more comfortable and they used a different laser which is now working very well. I was also informed that tattoo removal is considered medical practice and shouldn't be done by technicians.
I love this place! \r
I had been going somewhere else to get my tattoo laser removed, and wasn't getting the results nearly quick enough! \r
I went to see Olga (who was not only super sweet but also very knowledgeable) and saw results after 1 sesson and paid less then I was paying! I can't wait for my next session! Thank-you Skintology! See you soon!
great place, great service and results from a laser hair removal treatment were super good
This place is AMAZING! The front desk person was super nice and very helpful. Mty technician (don't remember her name) was great. So lovely and professional. She is young and cute lady. I love the decor and the rooms are super clean. I highly recommend this place! I want to try eyelash extentions next time i go there. Visit Skintology... you won't regret.
I got my lashes there!
I was preparing to my cousin's wedding and went there.
It is such a difference!!!! Was afraid they will look fake - nope, they look unbelievably real!!!! )))
Impressed with high-quality customer service and such a neat atmosphere. Girls, you should take a look, it worths it!
I went to Skintology for a facial this week. The esthetician's name was Rachel. She was just unbelievably wonderful! The massaging was angelic- her hands are like feathers. I had heavy break-outs and so she thoroughly cleaned my pores and did extractions. After that part I was sound asleep! I came out feeling fresh and my complexion is better in just a few days. Front desk was nice, the place is soooooo clean, and I think this place is a sanctuary =]\r
I highly recommend everyone to go to Skintology. I plan on starting my laser hair removal sessions here. I will keep you all posted! TRY IT OUT- NYCs gem!
Pros: Awesome atmosphere, wonderful staff
Cons: Absolutely nothing
I got several services over there. It's amazing place due to their big choices of skin treatments. Very proffessional workers. First time I got that feeling that they really care about their job. Firsttime I did my facial with Rachael, she is awesome! Second time I decided to do laser HR with Yana and Lausra. So far I love this place!
I RECEIVED THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL SERVICE AT SKINTOLOGY.THE TREATMENT WAS CLEARLY EXPLAINED TO ME BEFORE THE PROCEDURE. I WAS SCARED IF IT WILL HURT. BUT I HAD NO PAIN!!! AND NOW IM HAPPY WITH RESULTS. IT IS BEEN OVER A YEAR I HAD MY LASER DONE ON MY UPPER LIPS AND HAIRS ARE NOT GROWING BACK. I LOVE THE RESULT AND DEFINETELY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE I KNOW.
Pros: CUSTOMER SERVICE, LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Very beautiful and peaceful space. I love their facials and body treatments. The staff are very nice and professional. Facials are the best!!!!! Great organic products, exfoliating masks, extracts and relaxing massage. I have a problem skin(acne) after couple of facials my skin got so soft and clean even my friends noticed. Prices for NYC are affordable!!! My facials or body treatments always start on time. A couple weeks ago i got a body scrub, which was GREAT!!! After the scrub my skin felt so soft and fresh. And they have a room allow you to shower in a private. I love the atmosphere in the spa. From outside the street spa looks so small but once you get inside you will amaze how huge is this SPA. Front desk girls are very helpful and always so polite and nice on a phone. Highly rec. this Spa for FACIALS and BODY TREATMENTS. Visit this spa and you won't regret.
Pros: completely everything
Cons: completely none
Best spa experience. Very cozy and big spa.Staff is very professional and attentive services!!!! I have been coming for many year for laser hair removal and eyelash extentions and would not go anywhere else. I have refered Skintology to my collegues and friends and give gift certificates as presents to my relatives and friends. I am 100% satisfied with this spa. And highly reccomend this place for citysearch visitors.
Two thumbs up!
Pros: High standards
Cons: Not known
Every visit to Skintology is amazing. The facials always rejuvenate my skin and I feel ten years younger. I highly recommend this spa for all skincare and great products to take home.
Pros: Calm, relaxing environment /great facials/excellent service
I wanted to get eyelash extensions for my wedding in September so I thought of Skintology immediately. I have gotten facials, massages, waxing, etc here and knew that this is the place to go to be pampered. Yulia was the technician who took care of me for almost 3 hours! I thought it would be difficult to sit still through the 3 hour process but instead it was relaxing. Yulia explained everything that she was doing and when it was all over & I looked in the mirror, I was amazed! My wedding pictures look amazing and I felt wonderful on my wedding day. I highly recommend using Yulia and Skintology for eyelash extensions and for any/all of your beauty needs!
Pros: Lovely service, relaxing atmosphere
I had a a fabulous experience at this spa.I were asked if i would like tea,water or some pretzels.That was very nice of them.I have had so many treatments done in other spas around NY,but Skintology was one of the best spa I've ever tried.Thank you and i recommend all Spa seekers to visit this spa
Pros: BEST SPA
After visitin this place for a firt time i can definitely can say:Skintology deeply care about their customers!\r
The people there really treat you right. The whole spa is really quiet, so you definitely feel relaxed. If you want to relax after a long day + look good visit Skintology. Beautiful decorations, relaxing tretments, professional staff. What else can you ask for?
I have been to countless Spas in the tri-state area, experimenting with different styles of facials for my difficult and stubborn unhealthy skin. Not only did Skintology create a noticeable difference after my first visit, it was clear (pun intended) that once I walked through the door I was going to return. I was suddenly sedated by the atmosphere of the Spa and forgot that I was in the city at all. As for the facial, the textures and smells that saturated my skin.. I felt like an Egyptian God! I strongly encourage anyone and everyone to go to Skintology and experience what I had, you will not be sorry. I also just recently decided to try something new and got Eyelash Extensions for the first time. It takes about three hours but the result is the definition of perfection. I no longer have to put on any makeup because my eyes look ten times bigger than I imagined. Skintology does wonders! I have had multiple technicians at Skintology and I honestly cannot decide who is better than the rest because they are all so skilled and talented! Keep up the good work!
Cons: Was spoiled and didn't want to leave!
I am very surprised at the bad reviews about this Spa.I usually get a facial with microdermabrasion,laser hair removal ans sometimes mani/pedi.I live in LA and come to New York to get my skin cleaned up and for laser treatments and it is worth it! Services are great, all people who work there are nice.The front desk girl Shanty is sweetheart. Even though i come once a month she remember my name and my life stories:).SKINTOLOGY spa-is my new best friend!!!!!
Pros: super friendlly Staff,excellent job!
I got a photo facial at Skintology a few months ago and am still furious over their service and treatment of me afterwards. I went in with a clear complexion for a photo facial in preparation for my wedding-just a freshener. I came out with a purple cheek that eventually turned into black burn blisters and flaked off (ONLY after my dermatologist told me it was a bad burn and gave my very strong-and expensive-prescription strength cream).
During the session, one part of my face got very hot and I told the technician to stop. It seemed as if that part had been lasered with a more intense pulse of light and did not stop burning for hours. She put some ice on it and sent me home, telling me to get some burn cream at the pharmacy.
When I went to talk to the manager the next day, she was dismissive and had me schedule a face massage or something useless. I could not go to work, I could not go out in public and missed some significant events because of this humiliating burn. I had to send a threatening letter from the law firm I work at in order for them to refund my $500.
When I went to my dermatologist he was amazed because he had another patient come in with a very similar burn to mine on her legs from laser hair removal. He said she was distraught and crying. He asked where I had mine done and, when I told him Skintology, he said that is where the other patient had also gone. When I reported this to Skintology in the hopes of alerting them not to continue using that laser and/or that technician on other patients, I was flatly ignored.
All true. I wish this forum allowed me to post photos.
Pros: Rating would be negative if a star was not required to post.
Cons: Burns, horrible treatment of customers.
I really like this spa! From the very accommodating front desk, to the best bikini wax with Rimma, to the eyelash extensions with Olga and finally the Velashape Cellulite Removal with Laura you will enjoy the very best New York can offer. I do every time I visit it.
Pros: Very relaxing, professional and freindly staff, beautiful
Cons: None for me
I went for a facial last night and I had such a wonderful experience! I've been to many spas and worked in the industry for years. I was so pleased with my entire experience at Skintology. My technician, Olga, was fantastic! She was so relaxing and i left with my skin glowing. She didn't even try to upsell me- which to me, can sometimes make a relaxing experience awkward. She was honest with me and gave me great advice for my skin. I was the last appointment and no one rushed me out- my appointment actually ran 5 minutes over! The staff was also so pleasant and nice. I really enjoyed my facial and can't wait to go back!
Pros: Great Atmosphere, Excellent Technician and Staff
As far as I remember I always hated the two light scars on my dark skinned leg. I thought everybody is staring at them. I tried few things over the years but nothing made a bit of difference until a few weeks ago when I read something about the scar camouflage. After some research and a few consultations I decided on Skintology. Yvegeny was very patient and deliberate at consultation, and simply amazing at covering my scars. Believe it or not she made them disappear. Just like magic...
Pros: professional and pleasant staff, amazing results
I had lash extensions applied last week, and I must warn you that they are definitely not worth it!

Pros: nice technician
Cons: could do it myself!
When i first walk in to Skintology i was greeted by Shanty.She was very nice with me. Customer service is wonderful. Beautiful rooms!!!!At Skintology you are invited to leave your stress at the door and replace it with relaxation!!!!
Skintology one of the BEST Spa in New York City. I have been a client of Skintology for over 4 year.And i have recommended them to my relatives,friends,and just people that i know. Trust me they are the Best.!!!!!!Nice place,easy to find parking,polite and helpful employees.I love this place!!!!!!!!!!Whatever i go there there,they always make me feel comfortable and relaxed.On a holidays they usually have different kind of specials.I recommend to Visit Skintology!!!!!
I called to find out how much a laser treatment is and learn a little about it, once i called and asked, the woman on the phone didn't even know what she was talking about. she told me the price is depended on what color skin you have and how much hair you have, THE PRICE SHOULDN'T CHANGE FOR WHAT COLOR SKIN YOU HAVE. and after i was about to ask another question, she just hung up the phone while i was talking. SKINTOLOGY you don't have a price for full leg laser?
after reading the reviews i decided to go in for laser treatment. The laser treatment was terrible and way over priced. I was left unsatisfied.\r
Pros. friendly staff \r
After all day of running all around New York, I was very tired and me and my husband decided to relax in a nice place . My husband and I went to Skintology Spa on the recommendation of my mom and it was absolute perfection!!!\r
The whole environment is peaceful and quiet.!!!\r
Beautiful and nice place!!!\r
This spa is amazing!!!!\r
The place super clean!!!!\r
Great treatment professionals!!!\r
I don't know why other people wrote about this spa in sitysearch with bad reviews,but i know only one thing that i got high grade service.I want to Thanks all the girls who did a facial,manicupe,pedicure and massage for me and my husband.:))))\r
For anyone who wants to have ultimate relaxing experience- Skintology total skin and laser SPA is for you!
I had very clogged ears and My friend recommended to visit Skintology.When i called the receptionist was very nice and never rushed me.I asked a couple questions and got from her different options.I made an appointment for EAR CANDLING.Upon my arrival the receptionist ShAntiel knew my name.While i was waiting,i looked around and was very impressed by decorations (fresh flowers,nice chairs,clean floors,food for client).My technician Diane took me to the big and nice room.Before she start, Diane explained the procedure,asked me a couple question.In a beggining i was a little nervous,because a thought this procedure is painfull,but is wasn't. She put a candle on my ear and did a massage .It felt very relaxing. Music was also very calm. I almost fall asleep. After the procedure she cut a candle and i saw my wax. This treatment helped me a lot.Now i can hear better,i don't feel any clogges and problems with my ear. :)
WANT TO HAVE PAINLESS,EASY,FAST SERVICE WITH GREAT RESULT?!!!??!!... VISIT 'SKINTOLOGY SPA' , WHEN I CAME TO MY APPOINTMENT FOR LASER TREATMENT,MY CONSULTANT WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND I DECIDED TO DO THE TREATMENT. I THOUGHT IT WILL BE PAINFUL,BUT ACTUALLY IT WASN'T. SPA IMPRESSED ME WITH BEAUTIFUL DECORATION.VERY CLEAN BATHROOMS AND ROOMS.
Pros: IMPRESSING PLACE
I want to share my experience with people who searching for good services. I find a best place for myself and my mom. I think everyone before visiting a place they do researches,read reviews, That's why i'm writing this review by highly recommending this spa for laser tretments. I went for free consultation and got a whole information about laser tretment. My technician was very knowledgeble and explained everything. It was very convinient location,clean and very beautiful rooms, polite and nice front desk girls. They use medical grade machines,they even have a doctors there.I bought a package of half arm(buy 6 get one free),and second package of fulla leg for 50% off. So far i seen very good results. VIsit Skintology,very professinal staff,best results, and comfortable location.
Pros: GREAT STAFF:)
I am writing this for everybody who is planning to go to skintology after reading their 73 reviews. Please don't even try to go there. I am saying this because I made an appointment for eye brow tatoo removal, went there and have the most horrible experience. Receptionist made me feel so uncomfortable and she was staring at me like I came from planet mars. On the top of that the lady who explained me about tatoo removal don't even bother to come close to me and look at my face. How can you decide by looking at somebody at the end corner of the room that she need six or seven laser treatment. She gave me two mins and explained me whole procedure and then look at me like saying now get lost you want it or not dont waste my time. I want to ask her more question but I change my mind by the look on her face. You will not believe that I will never go there and not even recommend anybody because you want to feel comfortable, especially when you are going for laser treatments. You want them to answer all your question, look at your problems and probably suggest you something else. But there it was not like that.
Best Laser Services!!! AWESOME facial treatments!!!! NIce and relaxing manicure and pedicure!!!!Excellent Customer Service!!!! Amazing Eyelash extention!!!!Relaxing Massage!!! One of the best eyebrow With RIMMA!!!! Wonderful place to look INcreDIBLE BEauTIful!!!! Warm environment!!!!
I have never taken the time to write a review about anything in my life before. However, my facial was so bad, I feel compelled to write a review here. The skin technician never once told me what she was slathering on my face, what she was doing, etc. I felt uncomfortable asking because she was definately not very personable. I went here because it was cheaper compared to other places I was looking at, but when it comes to skin I would recommend spending a little more and going to a more legitimate place with a better reputation. I honestly dont know how this spa made it as one of the top on citysearch. maybe the only things the spa is decent at is eyebrows and laser removal- because the facial was definately awful. I was actually hoping it would end quickly so I could leave. Would never consider going back.
Pros: ummm nothing
Cons: terrible facial, unpersonable staff
Very professional. Best spa treatment. I went there for a facial and I am amazed with all the services they offer. The front desk is alway polite and they have accomodating appointments.
I highly recommend going to Skintology! I was just there the other day and got the most amazing eyebrow, bikini and lip wax from Rimma. She is precise and actually cares about how you look and feel. The experience was excellent. Thanks!\r
I have been using their service for hair removal on the face and have seen no results in the past one year. If anything, the hair growth has increased because of the continuous shaving. Maybe its because I'm Indian and their treatment is not for my skin type. And the service in this center is pathetic!
Cons: No results
I decided to visit Skintology after reading all the good reviews. And i am really glad i did it . I live on 22st and 6 av and i always walked by this spa.I tried a lot of spas in NYC-some of them ok,some good,some so-so,some just awful, but Skintology one of the best.!!!! It's very big SPA : 2 floors,they have a sauna, shower room,locker room.I have had almost everything in Skintology. It was the most unbelievable experience ever! Couple months ago i went to get a facial. The facial was super relaxing and left skin feeling fresher and awesome. Usually i get my facial with Rachieel(she is the BEST)...,but on Friday she was off.And i had my facial with Christine.She is amazing!!! She knows a lot about skin. After facial my skin looked 100 times better after just 1 facial. It was no sales pressure- just GREAT services!!!! You start to relax,as you walk through the door!!!!! i recom. to visit this SPA....!!!!
I went to skintology to remove hair on my legs. Spa is beautifully decorated and very clean. I had 3 sessions and all my hair is gone. Technicians were all very good - professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. I remember their names: Eve, Laura, and Olga. I recommend all of them. My favorite was Laura. I have also tried microdermabrasion twice already with Laura and Rachel - both are very very good. I have also had numerous facials done there. I am a regular customer now and recommend this place to all my friends. Everyone in the spa starting with receptionist and ending with the owner are very nice. I go to Skintology to relax and look good. And I always do look good after their treatments.
Pros: Beatiful, clean, and elegant spa. Everyone is very good. Happy with their treatments
Cons: have to make appointments ahead of time
I have been to many laser centers in NY,California even in Evrope. I wanted to get rid of hair in my bikini erea.I got treatments in California. And i was very upset,because i didn't see any difference after 8 sessions. I believe a lot of women want to get rid of hair,especially in bikini erea. i tried Skintology.i called there,girl in a phone was very nice with me.She gave me a lot of information about laser treatment. Right away made an appointment. I went there,place was very clean,beautiful decorations and quiet(not like in Chinese place). The staff was very professional. i can say that in Skintology works only professional people. I felt like i'm a V.I.P guest. Smiley Technicians was in a pretty white dresses.My technician spent around 20-25 minute with me.She told me that they using a new machine that i had not seen anywhere else.This is first time after all my researches I can really say that SKINTOLOGY one of the best Spa that i ever tried.And you know, i even was allowed to go into the sun and still get amazing results. You have to visit this place. You will be happy.It's very lovely place. They are always busy and i know why...:)))
While searching for a place for laser treatments I selected half a dozen of medical spas and scheduled consultations in each one of them. Some where more competent than others, but nobody spent as much time and thoroughly answered all my questions as laser specialist at Skintology. But price was another consideration. Here Skintology wasn't the cheapest, but not the most expensive as well. Rather in the middle. Individual treatments a bit more while the packages significantly less than others. I purchased 2 Laser Hair Removal packages, taking advantage of multi-package discount. So far, after 3 treatments the results are even better than promised at the consultation. I guess they are following up on the ""under-promise and over-deliver"" concept laser specialists mentioned few times at the consultation.
Pros: Exceptionally Clean, Competent and Pleasant Staff, Excellent Results, Street Parking
Gina does absolutely amazing work. I researched the internet and decide to go with Skintology. I didn't want to go to any fly by night and get a botched up job. ( I lost my eyebrows to the shaved eyebrow rebellion of the ""70""s) I didn't want anything that looked fake or weird. Gina advices on what color is best for you. I am so happy with the results. She makes hair like micro-pigmentation that fools everyone. My eyebrows look natural and I have no more fear of erasing them in the pool or beach or by accident. The price is so worth it. If you have any fears of pain. Fugetaboutit!! No pain. Gina is very sensitive to your needs and is a gem..\r
I also took my Aunt and she had her upper and lower eyelids permanent make-up. She is a chicken to pain (like who isn't?) and is so overpoyed with Gina as well.
Pros: Results are amazing
Cons: Parking (go after 6 PM on weekdays)
Skintology SPA is aewsome!!! Getting on appointment was very easy and breeze,even on Sunday. You could even book your appointment online (LIFEBOOKER). I did a lot of looking around.Skintology,was the only place that fully explained all the pro's and cons of the treatment . You can also get a free consultation with laser technician. After only one treatment the worst of the in-grown hairs were gone. Skintology -very relaxing,professional,wonderful place. i can't wait to go back and take advantage of other services they offer!!!
I am very, very fair-skinned, and I'm new to the City, so I wanted to find someone to do eyebrow/eyelash tinting. They advertise on the website that their price is a combo for both together at $55, but in the end they charged me $70! She said it's because they used 2 different dyes, but who on earth would dye their eyebrows BLACK like they would for their eyelashes? Most people get that service because they're blonde, so it makes not sense to me. I've been to many places that do tinting, and they've never charged like that. \r
When I mentioned that to the receptionist, she rolled her eyes at me and ignored it. I will certainly not go back.
Pros: It was clean, and the tinting was done well
Cons: The receptionist was mean, and the pricing was not what was advertised
I was very excited to go to Skintology because of the reviews. I wanted photo laser therapy for skin rejuvenation. On the phone they told me I would get a consult with the owner to see what would be the best treatment for my skin. First, I waited 40 minutes at the reception, no apologies. The owner left the spa after I had waited for 30 minutes. Then one of her employees took me to a room and she almost started a laser treatment for hair removal .... Just before she started she asked: ""hair removal right?"" No! Don't need that! I want my skin to glow again, I want my fine lines to be gone. So, we went to another room for the photo laser therapy. During the 20 minute treatment I finally got some attention of the owner: she came in two times and yelled something at her employee and left again. After we were done, I paid $550 and it felt like the biggest rip-off I have had in 4 years Manhattan. Not even a tinkling skin after the treatment ... nothing, no result, no consult. So no consult AND a treatment by an unexperienced person for $550. Please do more research than I did and find yourself a really professional spa! There are many of those in the city.
Pros: Perfect way to spend a lot of money in 1 hour
Cons: Very rude and unprofessional. Long wait, unexperienced and extremely unfriendly.
Staff is friendly and professionally trained. Spa is very clean, decor is amazing. I had my facial done with Rachel. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Her hands are gentle and very soft, one of the best facials so far. Also Rachel answered all my questions about skin care and helped me to choose facial products suitable for my skin. I also had eyebrows done by Gina, who is a real ARTIST and did a great job! I left Skintology spa feeling really good and will definitly come back for more services.
I just had a procedure at this spa designed to reduce cellulite. Frst of all, it was completely comfortable and relaxing throughout. The terapist, Fanya, was very personable, thoroghly professional yet gentle in the way she performed the treatment. After the tretment I felt like a new me and now I cannot wait to go back for my next visit. Just one more thing - the entire atmosphere at this spa is so pleasant and comfortable that I wish I had more time to try other treatmets they offer. Maybe next time.
