Facials always a pleasure here – This place was wonderful when I went with my Groupon. Carolina herself did my facial with all organic delicious products and explained everything she was doing as she did it, and even offered to give me another one down the road at the same discounted price. She was super sweet. I am going back again soon.
Best Money I Ever Spent.. – Expensive? Yes. Worth Every Penny? Absolutely.
I just can't say enough positive things about Allure Skincare in Astoria . People have told me that I wouldn't be able to do laser hair removal as I have fine, sandy blonde hair. Well, Allure must have a machine of the gods, because it works extremely well on me. I'm really blown away by the results.
I'm also blown away by the very limited amount of pain I experienced. I am a complete wimp when it comes to waxing and I barely even felt this, even on the highest level. Apparently their machine has some sort of cooling device that minimizes discomfort. I don't know the science, I just know I like it.
And, of course, the place is exceptionally clean and professional. I couldn't be happier.
Laser bikini hair removal is just not the kind of thing you want to skimp on. I am happy to pay for the best.
I highly recommend this place for IPLs/Photofacials. – First of all, the prices are great, and the lowest I've found in the entire Queens and NYC. I had been "shopping" around for photofacial treatments for several months before deciding on this place. Valerie is Amazing she gave me a 15 minute consultation before my treatment. Valerie explained every aspect of the procedure and how my skin would benefit from it. I had other consultations at other places, but always felt like they just wanted my money. Valerie actually asked me lots of questions about my skin. This place DOES NOT try to hard sell you the packages, but they are available if you want them. It allows you, the consumer, to decide for yourself. Their concern is to make you look your best by taking into consideration your skin type and tone. And of course, because the prices are so low, I will keep going back for more. The procedure itself was not so bad. It took about 25 minutes plus another 15 minutes for the mask. I've read that photofacials feel like a rubber band snap against your skin, but it felt less than that. It was not uncomfortable at all. I was able to see results after about second session. Allure's staff is very knowlegeable and ensured I was comfortable at all times. Valerie walked me through every step of the procedure.
Modern Private Professional – Well this is long over due, but very much a necessity.
I'm on my 5th session now and I have nothing to say but wonderful things about Allure skincare and Valerie!!! As you can tell from all the rave reviews, this place is nothing short of wonderful. They are so accommodating and attentive to your every need.
There equipment is the newest and best that is out there and the most painless treatment I've ever had.... REALLY! You can tell they really are aware of their clients and what is the most effective and efficient way to serve them.
Service by Valerie:
She is nothing but amazing and attentive. She is there for "you"! She is always making sure you don't have any pain and making sure you are wowed by your results. She is professional and caring, and I am so happy to have her as my Laser Genie Nurse!
What I get lasered is the back of my neck and I haven't had one hair grow since. I've followed Valerie instructions to wear sunscreen and exfoliate and I haven't had any bumps or issues that can arise from laser treatment. My neck is smooth and free of all the stragglers I had before.
I also had my underarms lasered once cause they had a deal, and I'm a sucker for deals. I swear ever since that one laser treatment my hair has grown thinner and less of it ever since.... AND ITS BEEN 5 MONTHS! If I was made of money i'd buy a package for that too. But one step at a time.
The prices are on the more expensive side for laser treatment, BUT, you have to take in the account: you are getting the best laser equipment out there, its almost painless, and your quality of care is unmatched. That in it self is worth it to me, BESIDES, they always have deals. Either on their website or through other channels like Living social, groupon and so forth and so on. Cheers to sexy hair-free limbs and parts!
3 IPL sessions ( Living Social ) – I really had a hard time to finish my 3 treatments due to high demand. But I'm really happy with the results, the main problem here is ability.
Pro : Amazing Results
Cons: Small Skincare Hard to book any appointment
Lifebooker Endermologie Deal Review – I've been getting endermologie treatments for about a month now. I go two times a week and have started to see results. My skin appears more toned and I think my "love handles" are starting to go away. The changes are subtle so it's good to take before/after pictures but I'm happy with the results so far.
Valerie and her staff are great and make you feel so at ease. The treatments are painless - at most they sometimes feel like a deep tissue massage - and pretty affordable. If you are thinking of getting endermologie Allure are the BEST in Queens
Valerie + Allure = The Best – What can I say about Valerie and Allure that hasn't already been said? nothing
LASER IS LIFE CHANGING! I love this place. I'm hooked and saving up for more. Hair that I could not deal with anymore..poof! GONE!! I'm only half way through my treatment package (3 of 6) and I'm totally satisfied with the progress. It's thinned out quite a bit and I'm confident I will not need more than 6 treatments. This place is so clean and professional I would not go elsewhere. Very personal treatment. Not to mention, the office is quiet and quite beautiful. I don't think the prices are too high and would be weary of places that are cheaper. This is a laser, it can burn you and it is a big deal- be wise about where you go. That said, I would not consider it to be a painful experience. By the time I actually realize it hurts, the pain is basically gone. I would highly recommend Allure Skincare and Laser to anyone. This is the first place and only place I'll go.
Good Deal and excellent Service. – Got a photofacial here during a Groupon Deal .
Good things about this place:
1) Friendly staff! Not snobby. Greets you when you come, no waiting time, no New York b*tchiness at all.
2) Experienced and no-nonsense.
3) A good experience overall-- Valerie checked throughout the facial to make sure I was comfortable and was very gentle.
4) I did end up buying a product but it was something very fully linked to my concerns and their prices are fair (as I checked out online later).
5) Even though I was a Groupon customer, they treated me well and not like someone they were trying to push through. In general my experiences have been good and I was pleased with Valerie. Would recommend!
Happy Groupon buyer – Discovered Allure Skincare because I bought groupon deals for a total of 3 Photo Facial sessions. I have had some previous experience with Photo Rejuvenation before, but none were nearly as impressive as Allure. The private Room are very clean and organized, you can tell that they really know what they're doing here.
I have had 2 sessions so far with Valerie, who is not only professional but extremely friendly and warm. She walked me through some necessary information before our first session and made me feel very comfortable right off the bat.
I am already seeing results after 2 sessions. Can't wait to finish the entire package! The prices here (without a groupon) I believe are pretty standard for NYC, but they also sell packages which make it a little more affordable. I can see myself coming back here in the future even without a discount deal, just because they are so professional.
Laser Treatment really works here – I bought a laser hair removal package through a deal coupon online for Allure.
THIS PLACE IS WONDERFUL! They are the sweetest people ever. Incredibly helpful and informative! The laser they use for hair removal really works!!!
I have gone once now for underarms and I am in the first hair free period and I LOVE NOT SHAVING!!!! I am seriously referring everyone I know to go to Allure. They have a kickbutt referral program too so call and inquire about that.
I can't tell you how happy I am with the laser hair removal I got done at Allure. Valerie is fabulous .
