Beauty salons are some of the most profitable, lucrative businesses in the world. With a constant need for professional services in cosmetology, esthetics and other services in the field of beauty, there will never be any shortage of demand. Women -- and sometimes men as well -- enjoy being pampered by having numerous beauty treatments, and facials are no exception.
Sai Kai 21 Beauty Skin Care is located in the heart of the Chinatown and Little Italy area of downtown New York City. The facilities are very small, with a few beds that are quite close to one another, but you will forget about everything once you relax and close your eyes. You will be treated to a wonderful, soothing facial that will be well worth it if you are on a tight budget, and you can even purchase a package of a dozen or more for $400. Sai Kay was also renovated last year and is higher end in appearance and organization. Facials tend to take about two hours, which means the professional esthetician will take her time on your skin.

You can expect a treatment that involves yogurt and almond scrubs as well as a great aloe massage, with steam used to open your pores for deep cleansing. In a nutshell, you will absolutely be pampered when you receive a facial at Monica's, and all for a highly reasonable price.
