Don’t let the quaint fountain in front fool you. Behind Skinklinic’s soothing lilac walls are some of the most advanced skin treatments available today. Besides glycolic facials, beta peels, and microdermabrasion scrubs, the clinic has four different injections for wrinkle removal, as well as something called Mandelic Essential, which treats sensitive and hyper-pigmented skin tones. If that’s not enough, the expansive center—founded in 2001 by skincare expert Kathy Dwyer to focus on anti-aging solutions—uses lasers for acne removal and Spot Zapping to erase sun damage. Before each procedure, clients consult with the Skinklinic staff—dermatologists, registered nurses, and doctor’s assistants—to assess problems, concerns, and realistic expectations; you can also get a Skinscan, a super close-up series of six photographs that chart your skin’s issues. Next it’s onto a very mod treatment room, with light purple walls, sound-absorbing carpet, and a foamy white chair. Facials are tailored to focus on your skin issues, but this isn’t a place that pampers: there’s no massage, soothing candle scent, or Enya in the background. After skin gets injected, extracted, or gently peeled, a maintenance program that includes recommendations from the spa’s product line is assigned by the esthetician; in keeping with the stylish but sterile vibe, the list is dubbed a Skinscription.Extra
The clinic offers series packages and has a preferred customer program. Don’t even think about canceling your appointment. There’s a $100 fee if you miss your slot.
This sleek medi-spa is the place to go for glowing, wedding-ready skin. Glycolics deep-clean the skin, intense pulsed light eliminates discolorations and flaws, and beta treatments alleviate acne. Book six months in advance.
