The whole thing was a wonderful experience. After wasting my time and money at several places, I have now found the best place. Stephanie was great! She is warm, friendly, and also very funny with a fabulous sense of humor. and she really kows what she is doing. She is very good at the Blend Method which I now think is the way to go particularly when it comes to your face. This method is very genle but at the same time powerful. and Stephanie has been doing it for years. I found that the short wave and the laser didn't really work so good. .................It is in a good location ....near Union Square.....there is a large and clean bathroom nearby.....the building is old and very charming and the security guard at the ground floor was actually friendly. I had lunch at whole foods afterwards. It was a good day.
