The first U.S. location of this hot-in-Europe chain offers IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal as a relatively quick and painless way to stay smooth. Visit the mod white-and-green spa to try its IPL treatment, which destroys hair shafts and follicles with futuristic-looking wands that emit broad-spectrum light. After you don a pair of giant sunglasses to protect your eyes from the flashes, the session ($49) begins with an ice pack applied to the hair-removal area to help keep the skin cool, followed by quick blasts from the IPL machine (which feel like a warm flash). Results vary, depending on your skin tone and hair texture, but after six sessions, hair growth will be seriously slowed and should eventually stop altogether.
