Although Madonna has never set foot in this one-room treatment center, her name is frequently mentioned by its sole technician, particularly in reference to the O2 Intraceutical Oxygen Treatment. Apparently, the Material Girl has touted the benefits of oxygen facials so much that the spa invested in the rejuvenation system as a fountain-of-youth alternative to Botox. Facials are unapologetically Aphrodite’s only business, and judging by the jam-packed appointment book, that’s just fine for the low-key models and movie producers who’ve embraced Russian pharmacist turned aesthetician Zina and her 90 minutes of skin care. The face-lift massage is geared to those looking for skin-tightening sans surgery but other targeted facials, from Classic European to Seaweed, are also on the menu. The spa, which was shoved in to the itsy-bitsy back room of a second-floor Lexington Ave. hair salon in 2006, is outgrowing its baby clothes. Look for news of big-girl britches in the future.


Zina really doesn’t like to rush, so this is not the best place to go for a lunchtime quickie. Appointments go fast, so cross your fingers for cancellations and never expect to walk in.
