Now, we all know about microdermabrasion, but have you ever heard of hydradermabrasion? Hydradermabrasion is a relatively new technique, made possible with a cutting-edge procedure called HydraFacial™. You can think of a HydraFacial as a moisture-rich version of microdermabrasion. Instead of using small rough particles, HydraFacial drenches the skin in hydrating serums. So, what about exfoliation? The HydraFacial uses a special spiral-shaped tip that cleanses and exfoliates the skin with each pass. This procedure allows us to address several cosmetic issues including acne, fine lines, uneven skin tone and much more.
HydraFacial is not a one-size-fits-all type of procedure, however. Using the different serums available to us, we can customize treatment based on your medical needs and cosmetic concerns. The serums range from a peptide complex called DermaBuilder™ to an antioxidant-rich solution called Antiox-6™. Really, the options are endless. Interested? Read on to find out where you can find HydraFacial treatment.
More and more, patients are turning to minimally-invasive treatment over that of surgery. Our Medispa Facilities offer these less-invasive procedures alongside the traditional, relaxing spa services we all love. Our newest Medispa, Luminique, represents a sort of haven amidst the hustle and bustle of trendy SoHo, NYC. What’s more exciting is that we now offer the HydraFacial as well!
Of course, our Medispa services don’t end there. We continue to offer injectables like BOTOX® and fillers. And, what would any spa be without peels, wraps and upon request, massage therapy? But, there’s only one way to find out what we can do for you—schedule an appointment!

The New York Times recently reported on a cosmetic procedure that’s becoming more and more popular today: permanent makeup. The article profiled Auri Reynoso, a hairstylist from New Jersey, who wanted to cut down her time spent in front of the mirror each morning. The Times quotes Ms. Reynoso as saying, “It’s amazing how you can wake up looking absolutely fabulous and get ready in five minutes. I just apply blush, lip gloss and mascara and I’m done.”
So, what are the most popular permanent makeup procedures today? Permanent makeup artists can offer beautiful, natural-looking permanent eyebrows, lip makeup, eyeliner and more. Ms. Reynoso, who chose to undergo permanent eyeliner and eyebrows, is reportedly “delighted with the results.”
Permanent makeup goes by several names—cosmetic tattooing, micropigmentation and permanent cosmetics among others. No matter what you call it, the process is simple. Before the procedure, we will meet to discuss your cosmetic goals and needs. Together, we will determine the best shape and color for your permanent makeup. Pigment is then deposited into the middle layers of the skin, using a pen-like instrument or a traditional tattoo device. While cosmetic tattooing is generally referred to as “permanent” makeup, it’s important to understand that all tattoos can fade with time, and some women will undergo touch-up appointments.
The benefits of permanent makeup are far-reaching. Here are a few reasons to consider this common procedure.
To learn more about permanent makeup or other treatments we offer at our Medispa facilities, we encourage you to contact us today. We have offices in Montvale, NJ, Pearl River, NY and SOHO, NYC. Schedule your consultation at 845-623-6141. We look forward to working with you.
