The best spa in town!!! – This will be a long review, so bear with me. :)
I should have honestly written this review long time ago when I first received services back in September 2011' from these two lovely ladies, Isabella and Anna. I must admit that the place does not boast of a fancy five star environment, but a very simple yet homely ambience, a place where you'll feel comfortable. A place where you have these two women who really care and want to hear of your deepest concerns about your outer appearance/ face and body. Both Isabella and Anna make a great pair/ team. It doesn't matter whether you are a Hollywood Star, a Runway Model, a Businesswoman, or just another normal working person they will still treat you like you belong there. They never exaggerate about their clientele' even though most of the celebrities can be spotted in this place. Trust me I have experienced it.
I went to Advance Skincare Spa with an entirely different issue in my mind i.e, water retention and weight gain. When I googled about the body wraps that would work for this problem I zeroed on to have Bioslimming body wraps, and in New York this was one of the three places that was offering this service. I chose to come here simply because it was close to where I was staying. By the way the wraps work. :)
Little did I realize that Isabella and Anna were really worried about my lifestyle, as to how did I gain so much weight in such a short time. They were not wanting to make a quick buck. They held on to me, wanting the know the route cause. They even charted out a plan for me, what to eat, when to eat and how much to eat, prescribed certain medication as well, which worked for me at least. Anna was also kind enough to give me her copy of the book that clearly mentioned what to eat when you dine out. How thoughtful of her. She is just like a mother to me....and I love her!
It doesn't stop here. Anna noticed some dark patches on my back. They started giving me light therapy that helped to some extent, but she knew something more was needed than just the phototherapy. Anna spoke to her personal dermatologist, Dr. Lebovits, one of the best in town and fixed up an appointment for me to go and see him. Thanks to her I found out that I have Lichenoid Dermatitis.
Coming back to my facial routine. I received a great facial from Isabella, leaving my skin soft and glowing. Isabella, again, has in-depth knowledge of ingredients that go in a cosmetic product. She will tell you exactly what to put on your face and body and what not to. She doesn't like you to spend your valuable time and money over expensive names. As she rightly puts it- " Sweety you don't need to waste your money. You just need to wash, exfoliate, tone, moisturize and put sun block. Read the ingredients before you buy. Putting loads of chemicals on your face may make your skin look better in the short run but if you want to win the race, go slow and be natural." By the way, Isabella is a chemists as well, so she knows what she is talking about. She chooses her products after in-depth research and she has best in my knowledge. I am using the Vanish under eye serum and Rehydrate from Luzern Laboratories that she recommended. The best so far...she never pushed me to buy every product that was on display. She said I just needed these as per my skin needs, that's all.
Folks! If you ever happen to go there I recommend you to get hold of there famous pumpkin peel, it amazing. And yeah! the oxygen facial is great......
I have loads and loads of other things to say but I will stop here. I hope this review will help you guys in making a right choice.
The Dewy, Fresh, Tight, Glow of NYC's Skin Experts – Isabelle and Anna at Advanced Skin Care are exactly what I was looking for in a ten year quest to find the best skin care that NYC had to offer. I am a native born New Yorker and I can tell you without hesitation that if you want bang-for-the buck great skin, go to Isabelle and Anna. If you want to spend money at a salon that wastes its time with cute packaging, champagne & coffee drinks, trendy mood lighting & receptionists with attitude---go to any one of the other of hundreds of NY salons. At Advanced Skin Care, Isabelle & Anna have been caring for the faces of New York's women, models and celebrities for 25 years. The level of experience is unmatched anywhere else. Most importantly, after the Oxygen facial or Enzyme peels, you leave looking radiant (literally, my skin glows and looks fresh faced and tight) and have had a major change in your skin. It's almost a laboratory in the sense of getting things done. A few hours here and you leave with remarkable and obvious results on your face.
Miss New York USA – Advanced Skin Care was not only the place that completely rejuvenated my skin and gave me my face back...they are also my family. Anna, one of the owners, became my second mom. While doing facials she counseled me on relationships and life decisions I was faced with. She healed my heart and my face.
Before coming to Anna I had to wear makeup to cover up all the blemishes on my skin. Since she fixed my face I haven't had to wear makeup at all. The past six months I have gone completely natural and have never felt more beautiful.
Love is all around you here....Advanced Skin Care will change your whole life. It certainly changed mine. Thank you so much Isabella and Anna, my family at Advanced Skin Care.
Acne Treatment that works! – I developed moderate to severe acne in September 2009. I believe stress at work and school might have been the culprits. I tried everything in the market to counteract this: from over the counter products, dermatologist visits, prescribed medication, fancy products from Sephora- but nothing worked! Some products worked for a little while, and as soon as all the breakouts were gone, I'd get new ones the next day. The worst part was people looking at me with pity, asking what happened to me and suggesting solutions.
5 months later I was recommended this place by a young lady at the counter of Bigelow's chemists. It took me a while to decide to go, specially because of the cost of the treatments, but I decided to go, and I must say that after two weeks my face looks so much better! I'm finally blemish free and it looks like it will stay that way. I have several visits in the next few months which will target my acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Next week I have a microdermibrasion appointment. I simply cannot wait until the end of the treatments where I find myself with a normal complexion!
The women who work there are very sweet and attentive. They took the time to explain the do's and don't s of skin care. My only suggestion would be to improve their ambiance and make it more spa like. Then again, it's a skin care center, not a spa.
The treatments are pricey, but worth it. At this point I would pay anything to have clear skin at last!
