Whether it's a laser or a lip gloss, it seems like you can buy any beauty treatment off a shelf these days. While the DIY optionsArticle Pictures are convenient and budget-friendly, there are some beauty rituals that are better left to the pros. Below, we've weighed the convenience, expense, longevity and safety of the top beauty treatments to determine when to get gorgeous at home and when to make the investment in seeing a professional.

FACIALDo It YourselfAt-home facials can be just as therapeutic as most spa treatments with the right mask and environment. On a budget? Use common ingredients right in your own home, like lemon, sugar, honey, avocado and cucumbers. Pinterest features many DIY facial recipes tailored to all skin types. So improvise your own spa and create the full experience right at home by lighting a few candles and playing some relaxing music. (www.Pinterest.com)

WAXING: Professional. At-home waxing is one treatment we definitely recommend leaving to the professionals! DIY waxing tends to leave unwanted stray hairs, and commonly causes burns and ingrown hairs. (Most waxers don't even wax their own bodies, instead they let a co-worker wax them!) Turn to the pro's at Uni K Wax Centers for this beauty treatment as they go extensive training, have their own unique proprietary all-natural elastic wax and provide the cleanest, fastest, painless waxing experience in the field.

TEETH WHITENING: Do It Yourself. At-home toothpastes, strips, gels and trays can get teeth almost as white as a professional treatment. Try an over-the-counter whitener like Supersmile Ultimate Whitening System, as it's the most impressive at-home whitening kit to-date that combines the best selling Professional Whitening System. ($58, www.supersmilestore.com)

SUNLESS TANNING: Professional. Because the streaks you notice the day after while sporting your new sun dress can be quite embarrassing. Visiting a professional is essential to obtaining absolute even color, not to mention it will last longer than one applied at home! Professionals can even add definition to your abs or arms by darkening certain areas, if desired. We recommend scheduling your appointment at least 24 hours in advance, to allow ample time for the spray to dry before showering and to avoid rubbing off on your clothes.

When you hear the famous name Trump you can't help but think of riches and extravagant things. I found nothing less at The Trump SoHo hotel when I made a visit to their spa to see how celebrities get red carpet ready! 

The hotel itself is magnificent and as soon as my cab pulled up I had amazing door service as I entered the building. The lobby was very warm and comforting as I made my way to the back check-in counter. The staff was so friendly as I checked in with the desk reception to notify them I arrived for my meeting with the hotel's Director of Marketing, Nicole Murano. As I waited for Ms. Murano I had a seat in the lobby and admired all of the architecture and design while I looked around at the people to see if I could spot any celebrities! Ms. Murano came to greet me and she started her tour of the amazing building.

Though this particular Trump building was fairly new the business was growing and already very successful, no doubt because of the strong name behind it, but still the place was absolutely elaborate and divine on it's own :) I took a look at various rooms and suites and I was in awe at the views for each room I was shown. Spectacular views of the Hudson River or breathtaking city streets of endless glowing light seemed so magical. The walls were almost all entirely made of glass so you could see views everywhere, even in the bathroom! My favorite, in fact, were the views you could see as you took a bath since the tub was right in front of a picturesque window from floor to ceiling, incredible! I was amazed, and I hadn't even been to The Spa yet!

My tour ended at The Spa and I was greeted warmly by the counter staff as they prepared me for my treatment. I was escorted to a siting room were I was offered water which had a hint of citrus. After a few minutes I was escorted to the ladies changing area and I was given my own locker with a code I could choose. Inside was a plush bathroom and very nice shower shoes which I changed into. I had some time before my appointment so I sat in the sauna to open my pores and prepare my face to get the exclusive pre-red carpet treatment called The Ultimate Kate Facial.
