Spa Week Deal: $50 Microdermabrasion at Skin Spa New York

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the outer layer of dry, dead skill cells. This treatment is especially effective for controlling hyperpigmentation (uneven skin tone) and diminishing acne scars and dark spots.

When I can afford it, I treat myself to microdermabrasion every couple months. So thanks to the nice folks at Spa Week Media, I got the chance to preview the $50 Spa Week deal for micro at Skin Spa New York's Flatiron/Chelsea location.

During Spa Week, Skin Spa -- which has several locations in New York City including Soho and Midtown -- offers a $50 power peel, customized facial, Brazilian wax or a 50-minute Swedish, deep tissue or aromatherapy massage.

This was my first visit to Skin Spa New York and I was pleasantly surprised by the minimalist, modern decor. And my aesthetician, Marina, was warm and friendly.  She agreed that micro was a good treatment for my skin type.  First she removed my makeup and made sure my skin was dry before using the crystal micro machine. It felt a bit too rough at first, so she adjusted the strength.  I made a joke about how Samantha looked after she got a laser resurfacing peel on a classic episode of Sex and the City. Marina laughed and assured me that micro is far more gentle than a laser facial, which she would not recommend for my skin type.

After about 10 minutes of exfoliation, Marina soothed my skin with a calming mask, which she left on for a few minutes. She then removed the mask, cleansed and applied a light sunscreen -- a must no matter the season because micro makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight.

I left Skin Spa New York with glowing, rejuvenated skin. Marina recommended that I also try a glycolic acid peel and to get a series of 3-6 micro/peel treatments in order to see more improvement in my skin tone.  I may come back for another treatment in a month. But you shouldn't wait. Spa Week is April 17-23, so book your $50 treatments now at one of the participating Skin Spa New York locations.
