What’s the secret to locking down that Valentine’s date? Be smooth.

This year, Velvet Effect Lasers is helping make that an easier goal by providing discount deals for love-struck clients. And with its successful track record of serving over 15,000 people and growing every day, it’s a sure pathway to achieve that silky smooth touch of the skin.

Until Feb. 14, the spa is offering 50 percent off any new area for laser hair removal treatment and $150 for 20 units of Botox (regularly priced at $200) for both new and existing clients.

Over the past four years, Velvet Effect Laser has been a leading cosmetics business in a highly innovative industry.

The key to its success lies in its founder, John Corona, who advocates for the confidence-boosting effect of having smooth skin and considers himself his best client as well.

“What I offer is because I like it. It works for me,” says Corona, who adds that he doesn’t hesitate to recommend his products to loved ones as well.

Corona’s successful business started with him testing out products on himself for everything from scar removal to hair reduction.

Now, with a dedicated staff of licensed laser techs utilizing five on-site lasers, he’s able to efficiently handle a high volume of clients who can safely choose the right laser for them depending on skin color.

A nurse practitioner and doctor are also available to oversee daily operations and to manage additional popular treatments and rejuvenating services including chemical peels, hair stimulation products for growth and facial fillers.

For those seeking to soften wrinkles and lines in their skin, Corona says he has seen a steady increase in highly satisfied clients using Botox over the years. He prides his staff in aiming for a “conservative and subtle” look when using the product and for always striving to inform clients about its proper usage.

For example, he will caution his clients about other offices that might utilize unethical practices for Botox injection. He warns them that when using it, some offices might either dilute their product or charge clients by the area to be worked on rather than the standardized practice of charging by the amount of units.

His clients, he says, “are guaranteed the constant strength of the product to be 100 percent to the manufacturer’s recommendations,” thus ensuring a duration of three to four months before any touch-ups are needed.

Those who use Botox or Juvederm can also participate in the Brilliant Distinctions rewards program. For each visit, points are awarded — use of Vivite gets you 40 points and a syringe of Juvederm gets you 200 points. For every 200 points, a client will receive $20 off their next visit.

Velvet Effect Lasers is located at 62-85 Woodhaven Blvd. in Rego Park and is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit laservelvet.com or call (718) 505-2737.
