D L. - 7/3/2012

I am so glad I went to Donna for laser hair removal - and specifically for the kind that Donna offers - the Gentlelase which is much better. I hemmed and hawed for a couple of years to do this and wish I hadn't waited so long - so far after two sessions it's been great results - wish this method of hair removal existed long ago! Donna is super friendly, gentle, professional and her boutique office is cozy and very relaxing! I look forward to future appointments and finally throwing out the razors which after two sessions I don't even use now on the lasered areas.

Jillian - 4/23/2012

It was such a pleasure meeting you. I felt comfortable which is very hard to find when doing these procedures. It looks great and I am using sunscreen and zinc. Looking forward to my next appointment.

Sara V. - 4/16/2012

Donna was great. Having laser hair removal is not the most fun thing to do, but she makes it as easy as possible. She is so friendly and easy-going and it's such a relaxing atmosphere. Also, she does a great job and it's pretty conveniently located, not too far from the F train and right off 7th Ave.

H K. - 4/15/2012

Donna did laser removal of my unwanted facial hair years ago -- and not a single hair has ever returned. She is totally knowledgeable about all aspects of laser hair removal. She is precise, thorough, patient, and caring. She answers all questions and explains everything you need to know before, during, and after treatment. She makes you feel at ease at all times and the results could not be better. Her shop is beautiful and impeccably clean. I recommend her without reservation.

Rosey - 03/07/2012

My lip is doing great. The hairs are starting to come in, very fine and light, but definitely coming in. I was really pleased with the results though. I'm going to see how the next few weeks go and I'll probably schedule another laser appointment with you then, sometime in April.

Laura - 03/12/2012

My skin is clearing up, geting lighter by the day. Also, i pleased to tell you that the hair has been falling out and i am shave less. I am also proud to announce that i have completly stoped twezzing!
Cant wait for my second treatment! You have no idea but, you are changing my life everyday!


:)

Amy - 01/22/2012

My hairs are at the point now where they are starting to shed. I already see a difference from my previous treatments as almost all the hairs look as if they are going to come out!
Also, the area that you previously spot treated is still smooth and no hairs in sight. So I'm sure the areas we just treated will act the same.
I want to tell you how happy I am to have met you, you are experienced, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. It took courage to search for other options after my previous experience, but after meeting you I knew I was in good hands.

Ria D. - 12/26/2011

I had been wanting to get laser hair removal for quite some time, but wasn't sure if I wanted to go through with it. I could not be more pleased with the purchase I've made at Smooth Endings. Not only was it a great experience, but the results have been awesome so far.

The salon is small, private and very clean. Donna is a true professional, she knows exactly what she is doing and is very helpful. She is open to answer any questions you might have, in person, over the phone or via email. She makes you feel incredibly comfortable and relaxed.

I noticed a great difference after the first couple of sessions, I'm excited to be completely done and never have to shave again! If you're looking for a great laser hair removal spot, give Donna a call ASAP.

M D. - 12/13/2011

I got to Smooth Endings through Living Social. And as other people said, sometimes through deals you get to places you just don't want to go back to. This is not the case.

It's a small intimate space. Donna is sweet and accommodating and is very open to hear your thoughts and concerns which is very rare. She and I actually formed a special connection.

But other than the personal aspect, the results were amazing. Only after one session I totally forgot about shaving my armpits! and even the hair that grew was so soft and light. Such a treat that made me think why didn't I do this sooner?!

Nicole P. - 12/11/2011

I cannot recommend highly enough!

Who has a good laser hair removal experience? Me, or anyone lucky enough to find this little gem.

Donna's shop is beautiful, and her and her puppy are a delight to be around. She is a consummate professional and aside from having a quick and comparatively comfortable laser session (I didn't think that was possible!), you can't argue with results. What a difference compared to the big-box chains you will see the paid ads for on yelp.

I had extensive laser hair removal at one of the big chains about 7 years ago and the experience and regrowth were very disappointing. I'm so glad I decided to give it another shot. Donna checked on me after the first few sessions via email to make sure everything was fine, which, of course it was, but wow, how nice!

I discovered Smooth Endings through a living-social deal. I went on a living social binge a few months ago. Rarely are these things a real deal or take you to places you would like to go back to, but this one is different on both counts. I will definitely be back and Donna's regular prices are very reasonable too.

Go on, getcher laser on, you will be so happy you did, as long as its done here!

Tareeka 12/07/2011

You greeted me with a hug,& I knew you were a special spirit.
Thank You so much for taking the time to work with me. You made my first experience so comfortable, friendly and professional, I feel more confident already!

Jenn 11/28/2011

I just wanted to tell you I am super impressed with the results of that one session we did last week. I am hoping for a great sales bonus so I can come back and finish everything we started.

Sally - 11/14/2011

I found Donna and Smooth Endings through Living Social. I had had a negative experience at Laser Cosmetica and I was very skeptical about trying another place, so I called and spoke with Donna on the phone. She was patient and kind and she spoke with me for a half hour to answer all my questions. I told her about my experiences with Laser Cosmetica and she didn't join me in the negativity, instead she explained that that's simply how the large corporations function.
Donna's the only technician at Smooth Endings, so you don't have to deal with the awkward experience of having a different stranger zap your brazilian every time you come in (which had been the case for me). Another thing I really appreciate about her is that she always makes sure she knows what areas i'm getting done before I come. She's available to email with questions and always gets back to her clients quickly. She is a well trained, experienced technician and I trust her.
The vibe at Donna's space is awesome too. It feels like a spa. It's quiet, and private. No other technicians barging in on you to ask for supplies. She is professional, and sweet, and easy to get in touch with. After ONE session on my underarms I saw an enormous difference. After another session I don't have to shave there anymore. Compare this to 6 sessions on my legs with Laser Cosmetica and I still have to shave every few days. She puts her lasers at the correct setting and she doesn't miss a spot. And most importantly, she makes the process a positive experience. As much as it can be ;)
If you want to see results, and you want my advice, DON'T deal with the large corporations even if they seem to be cheaper. It's a scam. They keep their settings too low and their technicians are under trained. Support a self owned business like Donna's. Do your research and find out the technician's experience. Ask about their training, what kind of equipment they use, and how long they've been doing it. If they get defensive when you ask these questions, chances are it's not worth your time.

Donna Is Fantastic Donna is fantastic...‎ - Donna, owner of Smooth Endings in Park Slope, Brooklyn, is fantastic! Donna is professional and provides the best laser hair removal service in Brooklyn. She took her time and was happy to give me breaks as I needed them. Best of all, my skin is so smooth! Bye-bye razors!

Thanks Donna! It was great meeting you!  I had a wonderful experience at your salon and would be glad to make my pleasure known! I look forward to the next treatment!

W.L. - 09/20/2011

I booked my first appointment at Smooth Endings upon reading many positive reviews online about Donna's laser  services. And now having come back from my first session I am more than thrilled to be joining in on this chorus.
Donna makes an impression even before you get to the door.  She responds to emails promptly and with a genuine warmth.
There is so much to rave about regarding this business.  Its tiny Park Slope space is immaculate and lovely. Donna is knowledgeable, exacting in her work, and exudes a caring that makes you feel comfortable (which is very important considering how vulnerable you can feel on that table depending on what you are getting done-- Trust me!!!).
I was touched today to find a not cookie-cutter email from Donna checking in on my results a day in.  I'm happy to say that I'm feeling great and excited to return for the rest of my package. Smooth Endings is simply fantastic.


:)

It was such a pleasure to meet and speak with you the other night! I got home quickly and easily...Thank you for asking, and thank you for being so kind and understanding. You're wonderful.

Stacy - 08/30/2011

I must say that I liked the personal care and one on one attention . You have made my first experience with laser hair removal very easy and stress free. I look forward in coming back in the future as well as recomend others.

Donna is great ! She is really caring when it comes to laser hair removal and honest.


:)

08/23/2011

Dear Donna,
I'm so blown away with how well the underarm treatment is working already!!!
I've already yelped on the Laser Cosmetica page about how excited I am that i'll never be going back there.


:)

Kev - 08/23/2011

Donna is great ! I went here because I bought a voucher online. I was expecting to be treated differently, but she was very professional and extremely welcoming. She took her time in doing the laser hair removal and explained everything before it. Donna really took care of me and I am extremely thankful ! Another great thing is that the treatment will always be done by her and no one else.


:)

Stacy - 08/09/2011

Hello Donna - I must say that I liked the personal care and one on one attention . You have made my first experience with laser hair removal very easy and stress free. I look forward in coming back in the future as well as recommend others.

Sarah - 05/30/2011

Donna is a terrific laser technician.  She makes you feel incredibly comfortable and at home. The pricing is affordable and the results are worth it.  It's nice to not have to think about unsightly hair.  I highly recommend her and her work to anyone even thinking about laser hair removal. 


:)

Nattallie- 02/08/2011

Wonderful experience! Donna is amazing. I had a bad experience getting laser done before and had come to her after reading a review. I was so happy I did. She explained to me why certain laser didn't work, and why the previous treatments I had received, did not give me the results I wanted. Meanwhile after just two treatments with Donna, the results were incredible. She knows what she's doing and I get to have the same person every time. Previously I had several different woman who didn't know what the problem areas were. I will be going back for other treatments on different parts of my body because Donna is that good.


:)

Erica‎ - 02/04/2011

Donna Trimboli is amazing. While she is professional and thorough, while achieving excellent results, she also easily manages to be personal and inviting. This makes the overall experience to be both comfortable and effective! I have been lasered by others before with less success. While the other options were cheaper at the time, it cost me more money in the long run since I needed to have the areas retreated. I was hesitant to try laser again, thinking I may just not be the right candidate for successful hair removal but by excellent fortune I found Donna and now have smoother endings!!! I highly recommend her in every way.


:)

Joann - 11/15/2010

Donna Rocks! Even though there are hundreds of other locations, i must say that i pin pointed the right place to have laser hair removal done. Donna was very calm and inviting, she was also very understanding of my situation. She took the time to answer all of my concerns before the procedure to help me feel relaxed and comfortable. Not to mention the newly renovated clean feeling environment, that to me is very important when i walk into a place to have such a procedure done. Even though this was my first time i am very satisfied with the results and look forward to have upcoming procedures done with Donna again.


:)

Joe 8/27/2010

Donna is amazing. She is super sweet, and knows what shes doing. I have used other lazer hair removal places before and no one has worked until I came here. I am almost finished with my treatments and would recommend Donna to EVERYONE.


:)

Julia - 04/11/2010

Simply Amazing! Donna has made my hair removal experience at Smooth Endings extremely satisfying. I was really embarrassed about needing hair removal, but Donna was not only reassuring, but VERY skilled throughout this whole process. I am so happy I went to Smooth Endings, and I have nothing but praise for Donna's work! Julia, age 23


:)

BL - 02/07/2010

Excellent Work Smooth Endings is a quiet, comfortable place to go for hair removal. Donna is very professional and her laser technique works. She is thoughtful and concerned about your comfort and is committed to getting a good result. She is very careful, which is very important considering that this is your skin you are dealing with. I would recommend her to anyone interested in hair removal.


:)

Julie - 02/06/2010

Can't say enough about Donna and the awesome results! Would highly recommend laser hair removal as well as Smooth Endings as the place to do it! Donna is terrific, professional and fun to be around. The salon space is relaxing, clean and peaceful to be in. The results are incredible and definitely life changing.


:)

Joan - 01/29/2010

Donna is terrific... Donna really knows what she's doing. She's very smart and totally knows the equipment. I can't say it doesn't hurt a little but the results are amazing. It really works...and Donna makes it painless because she is so sensitive to her clients' needs and also she can be very funny, so you're distracted.


:)

Sandy - 01/28/2010

Amazing! Honestly, this is the best money you'll spend. Donna knows what she's doing, there is no skin problem during or after the treatment, and because I had my work done 3 years ago I can attest that it's a permanent solution! Donna's shop is also comfy and an enjoyable place...go for it!


:)

J. - 12/09/2009

LIFE CHANGING RESULTS Donna's laser hair removal at Smooth Endings honestly changed my life. I really had an embarrassing amount of hairs on my chin - seriously, it was so bad I had to shave the hairs off every morning and night. I would wear my hair in my face to try to hide the chin hairs, and I would not spend the night at anyone's home because, well, in the morning, there would be a new crop of hairs on my chin. I knew it was just superficial but it really affected my self esteem. Then I went to Donna at Smooth Endings. The treatments are practically painless. Donna was so sweet and kind and down to earth from the first visit, I felt better right away, and then when the hair started to disappear, yes, my life changed, thanks to Donna. The treatments work! Donna is extremely reliable and efficient, her place is immaculately clean, the treatments really work and Donna has a healing energy to her that makes her clients feel better about themselves right away. Trust me.


:)

Helene - 09/27/2009

THRILLED WITH THE RESULTS I went to Donna at Smooth Endings years ago for removal of a moustache that I had been embarrassed by ever since I was a young girl. She did a superb job: each and every hair was removed and the results have lasted all these years. Donna is expert, thorough, and professional. She explained the entire process, answering all my questions and putting me at ease. She gets my wholehearted recommendation and I have always been grateful for her excellent work. I would never go to anyone else. Thanks again, Donna!


:)

Endri - 09/23/2009

Can't beat it! Many laser hair removal places have pretentious owners and/or workers. When I met Donna at Smooth Endings, I could sense a kindness in her voice and mannerisms. Being a male, laser hair removal is something that I personally was not so comfortable approaching. When I was in Donna's studio, she made me feel extremely comfortable and not the least bit self-conscious. I am so happy with the way I was treated, and even more so with the results--very highly recommended! Thanks, Donna! 


:)

b4 past n future - 09/11/2009

Professionalism and personal touch sealed the deal This place was a great pick, the professional care and personal approach made this place a fav in my book. i wouldn't go anywhere else after trying this place. I loved everything about it and i am only sad that it took me this long to find such a comfy and amazing place. They know how self-conscious people can be and made it simple and stress free!


:)

Gerard - 07/03/2009

A happy client After interviewing many centers I found the perfect place. A real PROFESSIONAL operation with a personal touch. Experienced knowledgeable and accommodating. The results are better than expected in less sessions. I suggest that anyone seeking hair removal speak to Donna before making a final decision. She clearly had my best interest in mind from beginning to end. I am so happy that I was recommended to Smooth Endings and Donna.
