Silk’s façade might initially be a little off-putting—it’s housed inside an old high-rise apartment building sporting some broken windowpanes and graffiti marks—but those undeterred by outward aesthetics make a beeline past the neighboring urologist office to the first-floor spa’s surprisingly sleek and modern interior. Four treatment rooms, designed in black-and-white tones, lay gentle claim to the mostly Spanish and Asian clientele who prefer not to traipse all the way downtown in order to treat themselves to Pavonia-product facials and therapeutic massage. Beyond the basic feel-good services, Silk also boasts the same, though less pricey, menu as her trendier, downtown medi-spa counterparts. Overseen by Dr. Eliscer Guzman, M.D., the center performs laser hair removal, acne-treating hydro-facials, scar treatments, and even Botox and Restylane to targeted results.
