Huggie Beauty and Laser Hair Removal

Huggie Beauty are small, circular earrings that sit close to the earlobe for all-day comfort. They’re great for those who prefer a subdued, feminine style.

Researchers have designed HuggieBot to be able to perform various intrahug gestures, including rubbing and patting. People who have tested the robot describe their experiences as feeling like receiving a comforting hug from a mother or friend.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treatment works by using a light-based beam of energy to permanently destroy unwanted hair follicles. The laser’s emitted energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, which creates heat that damages and disables the follicle from growing new hair. As a result, after a series of treatment sessions, your skin will be smooth and hair-free.

This cosmetic procedure is very popular among both men and women who are tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing. It is important to note that laser hair removal only eliminates the hair follicle that is in its growth phase, which is why it takes multiple treatment sessions to provide long-lasting results.

The best candidates for laser hair removal have dark and coarse hair that contrasts with their light-colored skin. This helps the laser target and destroy the hair follicles without damaging surrounding tissue. It’s also important that you are committed to a series of treatments at regular intervals to achieve permanent hair reduction in the desired areas.

It’s important to choose an experienced medical professional to perform laser hair removal treatment, like board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green in New York City. MedSpas and other non-dermatologist establishments often use cheaper, less advanced laser machines that can cause unwanted side effects such as burns, hyperpigmentation, or hypopigmentation on darker skin tones. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends you seek laser hair removal treatment from a board-certified dermatologist to ensure the best results and avoid these potential side effects.


Your face is one of the most exposed areas of your body, so it needs extra attention. Facials aren’t just an indulgence for ladies who lunch; they help clear your skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and boost hydration for all-day glowy smoothness.

Many facials involve some form of cleansing to remove makeup, dirt and other impurities, followed by exfoliation or skin resurfacing (often chemical peels), masks, extraction and a facial massage. Some facials focus on specific skin issues, like acne or hyperpigmentation, while others address general skin concerns such as dullness and uneven skin tone.

Look for facials that include skin-smoothing ingredients such as glycolic or enzyme peels, which help remove the dead skin cells that make pores appear larger and wrinkles look deeper, while vitamin C brightens your overall complexion. And if you’re prone to breakouts, be sure to look for a facial that includes steam and deep cleansing techniques designed specifically for acne-prone skin.

Another option is a dermaplaning facial, in which a thin blade scrapes the top layer of dead skin off your face, resulting in smoother, more even and glowing skin. If you’re unsure of which facial to choose, check out the spa’s treatment menu and talk with your esthetician about your skin goals. They’ll be happy to guide you in the right direction!
