After twenty years as a spa manager and seven as an esthetician, native Brooklynite Claudia Parrilla got tired of working at big spas that were more worried about their bottom line than their clients, so in 2004 she branched out on her own. Setting her own schedule, Parrilla is able to take time with her clients, and become well acquainted with both them and their skin; as a result, it’s common for her facials to last more than an hour and a half. Without a website or advertising, her one-woman business has become a well-kept skincare secret, favored by unblemished A-listers like Ed Burns and Heather Graham. Discreetly nestled in a suite at The New Yorker Hotel, Parrilla does microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, Intense Pulsed Light hair removal, and collagen remodeling all from one Feng-Shui'ed treatment room. A talker who likes to both share and listen, Parrilla's not afraid to express her satisfaction by oohing and ahhing when she extracts a really good one. For those who like chitchat, there can be an upside: Parrilla once set up two of her clients, who now share both an esthetician and a home.
