Casandra's Top 5 NYC Spa Spots
New Yorkers have a tough time keeping a fresh face. Pollution and summertime sweat are just two of the many factors that plague us on a daily basis. The perfect facial not only allows your skin to look good but also to feel great-- the much needed revival after all the damage that it has been through. This in-city oasis all about the procedure, the products, and the personalized treatment.
Here are my Top 5 choices:
Tribeca Med Spa
114 Hudson St, New York, NY 10013
My top choice; facials by actual dermatologist. First, your skin is evaluated by Reveal Skin Analysis, an advanced technology that creates a customized treatment for each individual client. From chemical peels to derma-planning, this spa offers a wide range of treatments starting at $175.
119 WEST 56TH STREET
Skin Laundry only offers one treatment-- a $65 Light and Laser facial, leaving skin deeply cleansed and toned. To achieve maximum results in the areas of acne, redness and unevenness, it is suggested that clients return for weekly treatments. The best part? It's only 15-minute so you can pop in quickly during lunch or on the run.
1459 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10028
Looking to simplify the two-hour monthly facial regiment? Then Heyday is the perfect fit for you. This spa has adopted the popular hair-dry bar business model, having a menu offering three facial options; 30-minutes, 50-minutes and 75-minutes. Each is adapted just for you, eliminating the struggle that comes with picking from a never-ending treatment list.
149 Essex St, New York, NY 10002
I would say Chillhouse is my all-in-one magical haven. A cafe-spa on the Lower East Side, offering manicures and massages in an Instagram-approved, beautifully designed space with affordable prices. Their menu includes massages (staring at $69) and an extensive nail art catalog. What's more is that your treatment can be followed by a drink at the bar like a chai latte or selection of beer and organic wines.
501 Fifth Avenue
Joanna Vargas is a celebrity go-to guru for all things skin. Her signature treatment, the Triple Crown Facial, is perfection. It’s a micro-current facial segmented into three steps that enhances the contours of your face, drains puffiness and dramatically enhances elasticity. With such amazing results you can expect a slightly elevated price point. The hour long, well worth it facial will run you $250, and much more if you want to be treated by Joanna.
