Best Microdermabrasion
Adrienne Denese
12a East 72nd Street
212-517-6600


Microdermabrasion, the super-facial scrub in which the skin is gently abraded to reveal lost shades of preteen pink, is the noninvasive, nonsurgical beauty secret of the well-preserved. Appropriately, the doyenne of this treatment, Adrienne Denese, is located near her client base, on the Upper East Side. In her able hand, the microdermabrasion wand will pelt your cheeks with salt crystals to leave your skin softer and healthier-looking. Despite a mild stinging sensation immediately after, clients can head right to a cocktail party. The top-of-the line treatment, which includes glycolic acid, vitamin C, and an ultrasound to drive these ingredients through the skin, is $325. Budget option: the original, simple microdermabrasion with just aluminum or magnesium crystals is $180 a pop.
