On December 14, the folks at Rejuvenate posted this to their Facebook page—an announcement that they are closing:

“Friendly reminder to our local customers/followers… Rejuvenate will be closing at current location on December 29th. We lost our lease and building has sold. New owner will most likely tear the building down to put up some hideous big thing. Sad. So we’re looking for a temporary space until we find a permanent home for rejuvenate. If you own a salon in the Astoria or LIC area, and would like to rent some of your space to us, we would love to hear from ya! please let us know!! Email: with details, or call 718 626 4434. We can’t believe this will be our last Holiday season on 23rd. Avenue. (We’ve been at this location for over 13 years) thanks to all our customers and clients who have supported Rejuvenate all these years. We love you all. in the meantime, come see us and enjoy sweet deals on our Rejuvenating facials!”


Frankly, this was a shock to me, but perhaps it shouldn’t be. 23rd Avenue continues to become more desirable a location in Astoria, and there are property owners looking to cash in on the increased hipness quotient. Regardless, the news is sad. I’ve stopped in over the years for various events, and I know other Astorians who love them. They are also the only authorized Trilogy products retailer in the neighborhood.

Another thing to be aware of is that if you have a gift certificate to Rejuvenate, you’ll need to redeem them before December 29, 2017.

Here’s hoping they can find a new location—it would be a loss for Astoria if they weren’t able to continue their work when it comes to helping people with their skin issues. You can keep up with their progress in finding a new space, as well as other Rejuvenate news on their Instagram at @rejuvenatefaceandbody.

We wish Rejuvenate owner Evelyn Gatzonis and her staff all the best in finding a new spot for Rejuvenate v2.0.
