Profile

Since the opening of her first beauty boutique in Nolita, Theresa Ma’s line of personalized skincare products has developed a devoted following that includes Sofia Coppola and Jennifer Connelly. But while Ma had the ability at her previous location to custom-create topical blends to treat a host dermatological issues, she couldn’t address the demand for SCO-branded spa treatments until moving to her current Soho space. Unassuming and uncluttered, the lofty spa holds a large chocolate-colored cube (which houses treatment rooms) and a reception desk flanked by an “Infusion Bar.” With test tubes of everything from soy and molasses to papaya and milk protein, it’s there that skincare cocktails are mixed and prepared for use during facials, and where take-home products are customized. What the spa may hold back in extra frills (overstuffed couches, relaxation rooms, and tea cookies are nowhere to be found) the staff more than makes up for in unhurried interaction and vigorous attention to the most important detail in the room—your skin. Those tired of assembly-line spas will be relieved to know that only a handful of clients are scheduled on a given day, and records are kept on each one to track changes and fluctuations in skin health between visits.

Extra

Those who can’t make it into the salon for a facial can still treat their skin. SCO’s custom-blended skincare products are available at Barneys New York and online at scocare.com.
