updatedVVMlogo2

From the moment you read the name Venus & Venom, you wonder

You know it’s something different. Maybe even taboo? But, you just can’t seem to keep yourself from wanting to find out.

The Grand Opening “Red Carpet Celebration” of Venus & Venom MediSpa (located in Nanuet, NY) is scheduled for April 24th at 4pm, with a special guest appearance by the legendary Chita Rivera and friends, but the spa is already open for business -with two other New York locations; one in Blauvelt and one in Monroe. The spa will feature a “Melange” of services, including an elaborate menu of facials, laser hair removal, tattoo removal, skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, Botox, dermal fillers, massages, body-sculpting and more. The spa specializes in many red carpet secrets and treatments to get women and men ready for everyday events to full service weddings- providing everything from skincare, body sculpting, “honeymoon novelties”, Make-up Artist Concierge, hair styling, and even the Perfect Smile- thanks to their exclusive network of artisan practitioners, including Vogue Hair Salon of Nanuet and Dental Arts of Rockland. Becoming part of the Venus & Venom elite network of professionals will entitle every client to a VIP status with exclusive privileges and rewards.

The divergent menu is raising eyebrows with services labeled “Crack and Sack for Men” laser hair removal, “Smoke and Mirrors” for Botox & Dermal Fillers,  “Dare to go Bare” laser hair removal and “Remove the Past-Fast” tattoo removal.  Venus & Venom will offer a posh facial for men called Urban Homme as well as the ultimate threesome (“Have a 3Some”) for men and women where the client handpicks a trio of services to come together.  The “Syn-Ake Venom Facial” is a touted Hollywood favorite among the stars and mimics Botox-like effects on the face. The spa also contains a unique boutique with everything from candles, books, handbags, and jewelry, to adult novelties and other niche items.
