Bare Naked Skincare & Laser Spa promises to deliver recognizable results to each person using its services. The objective is to help individuals to (literally) feel more comfortable in their own skin.

Owner Toni Occhipinti left the corporate world to pursue her real dream and passion. She returned to school to become a New York State licensed esthetician with certifications in chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser hair removal, while learning the industry and building a business of her own. Subsequently, she opened Bare Naked Skincare & Laser Spa on Long Island, where she was born and raised.

Beautifying and nourishing the skin is what it’s all about. Using the latest technologies, the spa offers a myriad of basic and advanced non-medical aesthetic and cosmetic services. For example, teens can address skin breakouts with deep cleansing, massage, gentle extractions, and facial masks in enticing scents. Anyone can enjoy a cool seaweed mask to tone, cleanse and firm, followed by a thermal mask rich in minerals, which promotes relaxation. Mature clients might opt for an In-Your-Prime Firming Facial with an Enzymatic Micro-peel, to achieve a firmer, smoother, more even-toned complexion.

Hair removal by a laser — an intense pulsating beam of light — is another specialty at Bare Naked. Unwanted hair is destroyed when the pigment in the follicles absorbs the light. Usually, multiple treatments are needed, and the length of each session depends on the size of the area. (An upper lip might take less than a minute, while a man’s back or legs can take up to an hour.)

The spa is located in East Meadow in the Phenix Salon Suites, a facility that houses independent salon-oriented businesses. Bare Naked’s suite is designed for comfort, privacy and a relaxing experience. Hues are earth tones and the music is soothing. Displayed are custom made products with the Bare Naked label.

Free consultations are offered either by phone or by appointment at the spa. A licensed Esthetician will answer questions, make recommendations for the best treatment for the individual, and even provide approximate pricing.

 Hours are by appointment only. Explanations of each skincare treatment, and answers to questions and interesting facts regarding laser hair removal, can be found on the companywebsite, www.barenakedspa.com.
