I decided to visit KUR after teetering around the thought of getting microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. My skin is relatively clear, but does breakout due to stress or hormones. I was looking for just a refreshing way to clear my skin and remove any dead skin cells.


Before I went in, I called and spoke with Kevin on the phone, who took the time to outline the advantages and reason for skin service they have. With being so well informed, I then chose the Chemical peel, as it seemed it would be the most effective for my skin. 

When I went in, Kevin did a GREAT job! He made me feel right at home, really explained the process, and was extremely informative on the science behind the chemicals and how they affect the skin.

It has been about half a week and I am in the peeling stage. Already, I have recieved compliments on my "glowy" skin and the fear I had of a Chemical peel are gone. Illusions that my face would be extremely blotchy.

I hope to have continued success and would recommend Kevin. He is talented and manages his business very well. I have raved to him about my friends and family already. 

I would go back in an instant & I am!

After several months of attempting to remedy my skin "challenges" with weapons-grade acne washes from CVS and shameful squeezing/picking, I finally found Sophia through Spa Week. I'm almost embarrassed at how happy I was after my appointment. Sophia is knowledgable about skincare and wonderful at sharing her knowledge with me. She looked at my skin and asked all the right questions in order to identify the proper treatment. My Deep Pore Detox Treatment Facial was relaxing, comfortable, informative, and --most of all- immediately effective. I have never seen my skin look so bright and even. Even after many extractions, she somehow left me with clear, calm, glowing skin. So happy to have found her. Can't wait for my next appointment. I would recommend Sophia to anyone and everyone!

KUR Skin Lab is the best I have experienced in New York. I have lived here for 4 years and I love facials/peels/microderms/ the works! What makes this place different from the rest is the expertise of the estheticians. I have gotten two facials from Sophia and both were incredible. She thoroughly examined my skin and was able to give me intelligent advice for what to receive from the facial and also how to alter my everyday routines for the best maintenance. She really knows her stuff. To top of it off, I let her know of my timeline to my wedding and skin goals and we came up with a great plan for flawless skin. 


Additionally, the environment is very inviting. Modern and chic! It feels clean, stylish and special. The products are also amazing. I don't remember the names but they leave my skin glowing for days. 


I have two more facials with Sophia before my big day but I will be sure to go back to KUR even after my wedding for routine maintenance.

The staff at Kur Skin Lab  is absolutely wonderful. They are professional, knowledgeable, and very friendly. I have had two Microdermabrasion Enhanced Treatments here (one with Sophia and one with Cleo.) Both women were great. They made the experience very relaxing and enjoyable. They all took the time to understand my skin care regime and offer suggestions and changes to improve my skin. All the products I have purchased from KUR have been great. I love that they use PCA Skin products. I have another appointment in October and I just can't wait! Well done,KUR Skin Lab, well done!

I found Kur Skin Lab through Spa Week. I had both facial and massage, It was definitely one of the best spa experiences that I've ever had. The ambience is modern, elegant, and comfortable and the staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I would definitely return to this spa and I highly recommend it!

I have nothing but great things to say about Kur Skin Lab.  The team here is helpful and knowledgeable.  I have tried many of the services they offer from facial treatments to chemical peels and I always have a wonderful experience.

Jasmine was wonderful--managing to make my thorough facial relaxing and stress-reducing. My skin looks great, her advice was smart and she exudes goodness.

My masseuse (Allison) was THOROUGH. She really did an excellent job and kneaded out tension in my body that I didn't realize was present.

Excellent service, premises, massage therapists, reception desk... everything was basically perfect.

I've been KUR's regular customer for a few months and after receiving services from Lana would never consider going anywhere else. Lana are incredibly knowledgable about the skin, the products, newest trends but most of all, what is best for their client. They never push any sales your way and go the extra mile ensuring the client is satisfied.  The front desk always greets you in a friendly way and is incredibly accommodating.  The prices are moderate and are in line with the rest, though KUR Skin Lab often offer bundle deals and specials. The overall atmosphere is clean, pleasant and relaxing.

I was assigned in New York City for half a year and during those times, I had an acne breakout, my first ever. Sophia was wonderfully outstanding. She helped me a lot and I've been using the products she recommended. She did deep pore facial with papaya mask treatment on me. My face became better. I just love her and KUR Skin Lab. I wish they have one branch here in Pittsburg.

I passed by KUR Skin Lab on the way back from a brunch yesterday. Since my face is starting to flake, I decided to call them for an appointment. Fortunately, they was able to fit me in for a last minute appointment on a Sunday. I was very impressed with how clean and professional the spa was. The space was modern but not pretentious. Even though I came in for the last slot of the appointment of the day, Lana took her time to do my facial, she provided high quality service and did not seem to rush at all. She went above and beyond and finished my facial in 70 minutes rather than the allocated 1 hour. During the facial, I appreciated that Lana explained what she will be doing and gave me heads up of the temperature. She was detailed oriented, firm during extraction and yet gentle at the same time. Her not pressuring me to buy anything was a plus as well! The price for the facial was also reasonable. Needless to say, I was so impressed that I immediately scheduled for the next appointment. Oh, did I mention they open late until 8 pm during weekday and open on Sunday?!? I work 9-6 during weekdays and I truly appreciate the flexibility of being able to come during weekday or on a Sunday. I am so glad I found KUR and rest assured I will be a long-term customer!

What a wonderful experience! I had a facial today and i think this is the best facial that I've had in a long time. The prices are very reasonable, the products are very excellent and Jasmine is just fantastic. So if you are visiting NYC  (like myself) or living here and you have an hour to spare...treat yourself! I will be back to NYC just to have a facial.

After dealing with severe acne, my cousin recommended The KUR Skin Lab. Originally, I made appointments with Lana for facials & peels but with the nature of my acne, the receptionist suggested I see Kevin to find out what was happening with my skin. Kevin was 100% professional and knowledgable of why I was breaking out so horribly. He quickly recommend a chemical peel together with an acne control regimen to my breakouts. My acne has since cleared. Lana is an awesome esthetician who is honest with recommended procedures and creates a tranquil atmosphere for facials & peels. Between them both, I finally have a skin regimen that works specifically for me. The Kur Skin Lab is AMAZING and the best at meeting all skin needs!

Jasmine is super professional and sweet! It was my first facial ever, and I'm really glad it was with her :-)


I especially like and appreciate how she asks detailed questions about your skin, skincare habits and products used so that she can really give you the attention your skin deserves. 

One more plus: after asking about my particular skin concerns, she suggested a product that I might find beneficial but not once did she try to push anything on me! That's pretty high up there on my "customer service" list.

One word " Sam" This guy is awesome. I have spent the last 3 months trying to find a massage therapist who can start off with good pressure and 1 hour later still apply the same pressure as when he started. Sam will find those knots hiding deep below the muscle. Hands down the best I have had in months. Also this place isn't one of those shady places either. Office area is clean and very welcoming. Staff is friendly and helpful. So if you have a kink in your neck or your back is hurting go to KUR and see Sam.

I had to take a moment to write a review about this spa. What a wonderful place, staff and result. My skin looks and feels absolutely wonderful. I had my first chemical peel here and the staff was so easy to talk to, and conservative with the amount of product used because I was uncertain and it was so great. I has nothing but wonderful things to say about Kevin and his staff. I will never go anywhere else!

Oooo la la to this place!  Nothing relaxes me more than a Sam's deep tissue massage...  yes, wow, ooooo weeee.....

Allison is amazing. She is a talented Massage Therapist. She obviously knows her profession.  My first visit at KUR produced results. I'm definitely going back. I've been to massage, doctors, etc but nothing gave me as much improvement as Allison did in one visit.  Takes more than one visit of course so I'm going to back!

So I recently had Kevin from Kur skin lab do needling, a mild invasive yet very effective, procedure on my face. I was fast approaching 40 and some signs of aging were peaking it's head and like any normal woman it was beginning to bother me a bit. Kevin suggested that I would be a great candidate for needling. He shared the the list of benefits that needling would offer me: smooth out my pores, promote collagen, minimize my fine lines, change the texture of my skin, and hardly any down time. I was sold. Though the only caveat was that it was going to be a bit uncomfortable he added. Which he was right , but it was bearable. I've done Botox before and it wasn't as painful as that. Right after the procedure I notice the fullness in my face. My skin had a glow and my fine lines were drastically minimized. As the weeks went by I figured my results would fade away, but it didn't. I followed the post care that Kevin suggested and did come back a month and half later for another session. Well I am very much sold on needling. I haven't needed Botox since and my fine lines have almost disappear around my eyes and mouth. I highly recommend this procedure. Kevin is truly knowledgeable and talented. He definitely has the touch of youth...

I had a great experience, despite coming with a Groupon, which is not always the case for Groupon customers discovering a new business.


Kevin was kind, professional, and very knowledgeable.  He spent some time educating me about skin, too. I got a Customized Chemical Peel and was really pleased with the results.  I have signed up to return for a series of facials and would recommend him to others.

MICRONEEDLING HAS TRANSFORMED MY SKIN.! Microneedling treatment has done more for my skin than botox.  I typically do microdermabrasion and am always thrilled with the result.  However, last winter,  I was interested in finding out if microneedling  lives up to the hype.  I've read that the results are similar to fraxel laser resurfacing but at a fraction of the cost and with virtually no down time.  


Per Kevin's suggestion, I did a series of four microneedling sessions.  After each session more fine lines vanished from my face.  I have a pesky line under my right eye that botox for some reason can't seem to relax.  After my fourth microneedling session, I woke up and the line had VANISHED.  It's been two months since my last microneedling and my skin looks just as plump and line-free as it did a week after my fourth session.  Also I am in love the with PCA Skin Care Line that accompanies the microneedling treatments.  They keep my skin glowing every day.

KUR Skin Lab is the type of place that once you find it, you're almost mad that you ever wasted your time going anywhere else - great service, good prices, & very welcoming environment!

Edith is amazing at facials. She takes her time to really get to know you, the products you use, and your diet & exercise routine. She will offer up good & realistic advice on what you should do to get your skin on track without being preachy, and because she's so great, you will listen.  

Most importantly, she's not a product pusher! I hate to leave a treatment room, only to find a million products lined up on the counter that I "must have." Edith does not do that. She only recommends what works for an individual, not the masses to make a quick buck.

I've been going to KUR twice now, and have turned a friend on to it as well. J

I love Kur Skin Lab. There is nothing worse than feeling like your skin is not looking its best and going in to a spa to be told all the things you do wrong.........or having someone sell you on products you will not use. Edith understands people are on a budget and she is not pushy and above all there is no judgment with her recommendations.  
Edith does an amazing job and her expertise and knowledge is something you really cannot put a price on though there is one.  She is not someone who will push you to do more than you want either.  I love that I can go there say I am on this budget what would you recommend and not have to worry about her overselling me things that I do not need.  She listens to what you are looking for and then talks to you about your options. If you want to have skin specific facial treatments and want to be in safe hands I highly recommend Edith!   My friends love her as well. I will definitely go back to her because of the way she treated me and because she is so knowledgable.

I have had terrible skin for almost all of my adult life, acne, acne scars, blotches, large pores, sun damage. I have wanted to try a facial but was always scared of the creams breaking me out or causing a reaction but I looked into the KUR facial treatments and thought I'd give it a chance. 

I've now been seeing Edith for the last several months and my skin has never looked better.  I can't believe it, it's smooth, clear, even toned.  I really never thought I could look like this with no makeup. People actually tell me I have good skin, ARE YOU KIDDING!?!  Seriously, she has been a God send.
Not to mention I really look forward to my appointments because she's an absolute joy to be around.  Everyone who works here is fun, professional, and attentive.  
Thank you Edith and KUR!

I love Lilian! She's so knowledgeable about skin care and her treatments are outstanding. I'm Asian, so I have all the usual problems (dark spots, sensitivity, etc.). I didn't think I could ever be convinced to get a chemical peel, but she's someone you can trust with your skin. We are getting my problems under control and I love the PCA SKIN  products! That stuff is a freaking miracle.


Her prices are also very fair, which is much appreciated. She gets results and you also feel like you're hanging out with one of your friends, she's just so awesome! Overall I will give A plus to KUR Skin Lab.

I've experienced massage therapists from spas around the world. Ivan at KUR is beyond the spa or typical massage experience. Her knowledge of the body and devotion to service make KUR the only spa I call when in New York City. A step above the rest, a deeper overall experience.

Jeanne is the best! She has transformed my skin from acne infested, clogged pores, and a dull appearance to a glowing smooth surface! Her treatments take dedication, time, and patience. But if you're like me, someone who has tried every treatment, topical, and 2 rounds of accutane, you're probably willing to endure it! I even noticed a smoother appearance after the first treatment! 


The extractions are painful and you do look red afterwards but give it a few days and you will notice a difference. She is so gentle and focused on your well-being that it makes it a great experience. 

If you are at rock bottom with your skin and feeling let down from every product, go see her! She will not disappoint!

They offer a variety of skincare services, such as facials and laser treatments.  The place is clean and the staff here are super friendly. For your first consultation, Kevin sits with you and assesses your skin and gives you advice on procedures/ products that best suit you.I eventually decided to get a couple of Stem Cell Microneedling Treatments and it was relatively painless.  He gave you a numbing cream prior to the procedure to help. My skin is looking better than ever. My lines and wrinkles are diminishing. :)  I need to come back to try out their TCA Peels!

I have been getting facials for over 20 years and very picky on the brands that they use, I will not use cheep product. I went to Jeanne @ Kur Skin Lab and it was the best facial that I have ever had, PCA Skin, the products she used on me,  has made my face so healthy looking and I just love washing my face every night and day with it that I had her order me big bottles and now it is in my home for my personal use. I can't wait for many more facials!!

If you haven't been, It's a must thing to do. 
Thank You Jeanne for the great work!!

I was having troubles with acne and wanted to try the microdermabrasion with the facial and I called to schedule the appointment and the front desk was very helpful and attentive to questions about my skin type and what would be best for my skin. I went in for my appointment and everyone there was very friendly, it was super relaxing and they made me feel like I was at home. Jeanne, the esthetician, gave me some very good information about my skin and told me that she thought my skin would really benefit from the treatment, after leaving the Kur Skin Lab I had already started noticing a difference in my skin, and throughout the week my skin continued to improve.

My massage was AMAZING! I received a 60 min therapeutic massage by Ivan and it was great. I like how he defined my needs and customized a treatment for me. I've been to a lot of different masseuse and he was one of my favorites. Usually when using group on to get a massage I never know what to expect, but I would HIGHLY recommend this place. I don't get massages regularly, but I enjoyed it so much that it may be a new monthly expense.

This was my first massage and I wasn't sure what to expect. The aura of the spa is modern and the treatment room is relaxing, lots of positive energy through out the space.  I had a 60 minute session with Ivan, he made sure to focus on all of the spots that were troubling me these past few weeks. It was amazing!  This was better than any reiki healing session I have ever had. I found this not only to be a physical healing experience but an energy one as well.  I felt 10 years younger, refreshed and relaxed. I will not go anywhere else!

Thank you for a great first time experience!

Jeanne is lovely and she is very knowledgeable about skincare. Better to ask her than google anything! I got her Customized Facial which felt very nice. Every one at KUR is friendly and passionate about what they do.

Best facial ever! 

I received a gift certificate for Mother's Day and having never been to this location I was not sure what to expect but Lilian, my esthetician was not only knowledgeable, she was also very kind and always making sure I was comfortable with any of the process.

As I walked up to the building, it looks like an commercial space that has been transformed in to a spa. The room I was in was clean and properly equipped with everything you need. 
Lilian explained to me everything that she was going to do for my extended facial, asking me questions about my skin concerns and what I wanted to get out of it all and then as she was working on me she kept communicating with me making sure I was at ease.
I loved that everything she used was good quality and gentle on my skin. She made sure my skin felt pampered and I even got a neck and hand massage which I was not expecting. After my session was over I felt relaxed and my skin felt soft and well cleansed.
I will definitely be returning!

Lilian is THE reason I go to KUR Skin Lab. I've been getting a monthly facial with her for 7 months now and the results are unbelievable. I had been struggling with chin hormonal acne for a few years and nothing seemed to work. Lilian got me on a great and affordable skincare routine and I immediately started seeing results. I am still amazed that my skin now is actually my skin! I constantly get told it's glowing and it is 100% thanks to Brittany. 

She is incredibly warm, knowledgeable, and easily the best part of my month. To top it off, she somehow makes extractions quick and painless. Forever a loyal client to Lilian!

The effect is amazing!!!

I just relocated to New York last month, and after moving here I had lots of breakouts on my face, I tried one facial which I found on groupon but it doesn't work well.

After reading these reviews, I decided to go to KUR. Jeanne, my esthetician, is a nice person and talks very softly, and I like that. It hurts a little bit when she cleaned the breakouts on my face, but the effect is really amazing, right now my face is way much smoother than 2 weeks ago.

I recommend her to my friends, and I'll definitely go to her again!

After battling hormonal acne for 9 months of pregnancy I came here for a much needed facial. Jeanne was my fab esthetician and knew exactly what my skin was craving. The chemical peel helped clear up some deep pimples on my cheeks and smooth out the little annoying bumpies as well. Jeanne was as friendly as she was professional and I can't have wait for my next visit to get even better glowy skin!!

I went there for my facial during the spa week. The gal who did my facial is very nice. I see lots of people go there for Massage as well. Try out the facial...it's good.

I had microdermabrasion done with Lana! She is so sweet and made me feel very comfortable throughout my appointment. It's been 6 days and I can see a visible change in the treated area. My skin is smoother, clearer and better toned. I will definitely return for more treatments with Lana. 


I am very happy with Kur Skin Lab. My first visit was with a Groupon deal but I decided to stay as a client. I have received very professional and personalized treatment addressing all my skin issues. My skin condition improved a lot and I also learnt how my daily routine should look like. Everything thanks to Elysia that is taking great care of me! She is a real skin magician and amazing person!


I had another wonderful massage with Phetmany yesterday at this lovely salon. After a session with Phetmany I feel relaxed and my back ache disappears. She is a highly skilled masseuse and a kind and sweet person. I recommend this salon to my friends as it is clean and beautifully appointed and comfortable. They offer many services including facials. You are in good hands when you book a service at Kur!


Kevin is beyond amazing and has magic hands! I was in need of some serious TLC and he really took care of me. Needless to say, I had an amazing experience and my skin couldn't look better!


First time here to get microdermabrasion done and Sherry made me feel very comfortable! The session was fast, but she made sure to get into all the nooks and crannies. It's been a few days and my skin feels smoother already.


I had my first treatment at KUR Skin Lababout a week ago and really liked the staff there. I had my initial consultation with Kevin a week prior to that and he took the time to discuss what he recommended and answer all of my questions. 


I had the microneedling enhanced done and the experience was actually relaxing, not at all what I expected. Both times I have been I have not waited at all for my appointment. I enjoyed the facial treatments and have been excited to see results. 


It's been a week and my skin looks smooth, tight, clear and even skin tone. My wrinkles are drastically improving. I am looking forwards to more treatments at KUR.


Thoroughly professional and caring service. Clean and calm environment. I would definitely recommend to others.


Had the Oxygenating Trio Treatment and left feeling seriously amazing! My skin is so soft and I booked my next appointment as soon as I was done. Highly recommend!


I had my first appointment with Elyssia about a month ago and I'm very much looking forward to my next one tomorrow. I waited some time to write my review to see how my skin reacted over time, and I have to say I was really happy with the results. It always takes a few appointments to get your skin back under control if you haven't been taking good care of it (which I haven't), but I noticed significant improvements with only one visit. My skin looks brighter, smoother, and the tone is much more even. Hopefully over the next few times we can get my mild acne to go away!

 Additionally, Elyssia is wonderful. The space is soothing and her table is so comfortable I'd book time just to take naps on it. The conversation was great, and from the minute I walked in to the minute I left she made me feel welcome, comfortable, and totally relaxed. Elyssia is incredibly sweet and warm, and did a great job of selling her products without being pushy. They also offers wonderful incentives for first-time visitors and newer clients. All in all, a great experience and I'm very happy I followed the advice of the reviews here and went to see her. Give her a try! You won't be disappointed :)


I have been going to Dilara for almost 3 months and I can't recommend her enough.  She tailors the facial to your skin's needs and has such a calming demeanor.  By the end of my facial, I'm always super relaxed.  Exactly what I need every time! I get a facial once a month and I really look forward to it.  My skin is always glowing and my make-up looks so much nicer, too.  I also love her product line.  It's affordable and quality.  One more thing to note, her room is lovely and so relaxing.  So happy to have found Dilara!
