Just like great skin doesn’t need much makeup, this family-owned day spa doesn’t rely on lavish accoutrements. Founded in 1995 by a family from Patras, Greece, and hidden away on the fifth floor of a Midtown office building, the spa looks more apartment than wellness oasis. What draws clients to its four treatment rooms from all over the world—as well as down the block—is the house specialty: skincare. The small, European-trained staff personalizes services to suit each client’s needs, and anti-aging procedures are their forte. Signature treatments like Cool Light Laser sessions help reduce wrinkles, dark circles, acne, and rosacea by increasing cellular renewal, while the Triple Oxygen Facial hydrates and invigorates skin. On the yummier-sounding side is the Blueberry Wine Facial, a slathered-on, antioxidant cocktail of pomegranate juice, cherry extract, and pumpkin oil. Half the treatment rooms have two beds, making the space popular with both couples and mothers and daughters (combination packages are offered on the spa’s website). Wraps, scrubs, waxing, and massage are also available, as are natural and therapeutic treatments like ear candling and lymphatic drainage, which reduces bloating and drains toxins. Among the international skincare products the spa sells is a line of the family’s own creation.Extra
