Clients can’t stop raving about Fusion Spa owner Tiffany Albert—formerly of Glow Skin Care on 57th Street—and after a facial at Fusion, you’ll likely join them. Named for Albert’s belief that treatments should meld clinical skin care with relaxation and indulgence, the spa is located on the seventh floor of the busy New Yorker Hotel, but the environment inside her tiny space couldn’t be more peaceful. The sole treatment room has soothing, green tea-colored walls and a table so comfy it feels like a lounge chair. Albert’s specialty is facials, which she customizes to each client’s skin type; all include her signature (and extremely relaxing) massage of the hands, arms, shoulders, trapezium, and neck area. Services like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, skin tag removal, and photo facials possess the same medi-spa quality minus the white-coat attitude. Albert incorporates reflexology techniques into anti-stress eye treatments and offers hair removal by intense pulse-light therapy, which is up to ten times faster than laser. Products from CosMedix, the brand of chemical peels used at Fusion, and the eco-safe line Dermalogica are sold in the lobby. With such a loyal following, and only two therapists, appointments here can be hard to score on short notice.
Indoor surfing, spinning lovefests, a luxurious pig-placenta facial, and more.
