Hi there! 

I’m Sarah, an esthetician and skin expert located on New York City's Upper East Side.  


For the past 30-years, I’ve worked with teens and young professionals battling acne, men and women of all ages looking for help with fine lines and wrinkles, and A-list celebrities get red-carpet ready. 




Why am I for you? 


  • Because you’re hoping to find your go-to skincare guru to help with all things skin. Who is known for being knowledgeable, attentive, thorough, and fun. (Clients also describe me as the “fairy godmother of facial imperfections.” No joke. Look it up, you’ll find this on Yelp.)

  • Because you have acne -- STILL! -- even though you’re a grown adult. And despite the fact you’ve tried every acne lotion, facewash, peel, and ointment under the sun, you’ve almost given up hope on ever having clear, beautiful skin.

  • Because you’re a newbie to laser hair removal. You’re looking for someone friendly and patient, who will answer your questions, and put you at ease. 


AND ME? That’s just what I do. 


After a quick in-person consultation, I put together a customized treatment just for you. No one-size-fits-all around here! 


From laser therapy to microdermabrasion to peels, I have what it takes to help your skin look its best, and I’m as thrilled as you to see results! 


The BEST part: I’m a one-woman show, so you’ll be seeing me every appointment. No more meeting a new esthetician every visit! 


Also, my hours are flexible, I’m open after work hours when other salons are closed. Sessions are by appointment only, so there’s no wait time.  Ready to LOOK and FEEL your absolute best?  




I’ll keep it simple with these seven facts: 


  1. When I’m not at the salon, I stay busy chasing 3 young kiddos. My oldest is nine, and my youngest is just 15-months!

  2. Even though I’m juggling a lot as a business owner, wife, and mom, I love cooking and admittedly everyday spend way too much time in the kitchen cooking Korean BBQ and baking cupcakes -- red velvet with cream cheese frosting is the family favorite! 

  3. I got my start in the beauty industry when I was 13-years old. I worked as a nail technician, alongside my mother who owned a few salons in NYC. After college, I decided to follow my mother’s footsteps and earned my esthetician, laser technician, and massage therapist credentials.

  4. My early years in my career were fast-paced, busy, exciting - as I built and managed the spa team at a few luxury hotels, including The Benjamin and Hotel Plaza Athenee. 

  5. With decades of experience under my belt, I decided to start my own business and opened Laser-Esthetics in 2014! Back then, as a mom of two, I wanted a little more flexibility with my schedule. 

  6. I LOVE MY JOB!!!! I love that I get to help people every day improve their skin and increase their confidence. I find it SO rewarding to meet new clients on a daily basis, and also see my loyal clients who have been coming to me for years, and I really can’t imagine doing anything else. 

  7. That’s what I hope to do for you, too! To help you LOOK and FEEL your best. 


Are you ready to be amazed? 




After being treated to Sarah's services at the Plaza Athenee and other "fancy" corporate spas around the city, I was so thrilled to finally find her in her own intimate, meticulous and comfy salon tucked onto a tree lined block on the Upper East Side.  Laser-Esthetics is the ultimate in personal services with one of the best skin care therapists, Sarah Choi.
