Many women and men feel self-conscious about the appearance of their skin; some have facial scarring from teenage acne, others have more recently developed brown spots and discoloration on their face or hands from years of accumulated sun exposure. While our board-certified plastic surgeons offer many surgical and non-surgical procedures that can dramatically reduce aging signs by tightening and plumping the skin, another approach is needed to improve the actual surface skin texture…and now we offer it here!
We’ve recently opened Spa Nouvelle at New York Group, a pampering day spa located within our Tarrytown offices, to provide our patients with spa procedures that address specific skin issues or provide a refreshing boost for all skin types. Our highly trained medical aesthetician, Ashlea Hoess, is certified in Advanced Aesthetics and specializes in anti-aging and improving skin tone and firmness; sensitive skin; visible capillaries; melasma (patchy brown discoloration); rosacea (redness) and stage I-IV acne.
Ashlea will customize a spa visit designed to improve the look and feel of your unique skin type, choosing from specialized facials, microdermabrasion or laser therapies proven effective in healing and toning the skin. She’ll use the most advanced technology – plus good old-fashioned hands-on care – to meet your individual needs. Here’s an overview of some of the customized treatments we provide:
Microdermabrasion: We use a hand-held instrument to gently but thoroughly remove the face’s outermost layer, buffing off dead and loose skin cells and stimulating the growth of new, fresh skin. We can eliminate many types of acne scars and dark skin patches (“sun spots”) and reduce fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores.
Chemical Peels: We apply a mild chemical solution to your skin, leave it on to for ten minutes, then thoroughly wash it off. The peel is customized to remove uneven pigment, dryness, acne or fine wrinkling. By removing the damaged outermost skin layer, your skin is thoroughly exfoliated and left with a noticeably healthier glow.
Facials: We love giving facials and you’ll love getting one! We analyze your skin carefully and select a facial customized for your skin type and improvements you’re seeking, whether to treat acne or signs of aging or just refresh your skin. We’ll give you deep hydration and exfoliation that will soothe and plump up your skin and bring out your fresh new skin layers. We offer the latest technology with the ELITE MPX laser photo facial, which works wonders on redness, broken capillaries, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and rosacea.
Laser hair removal: Effective in permanently preventing regrowth of unwanted hair on your face, legs, bikini area, etc.
Come in for a consult with Ashlea to decide which treatment combination is best for your skin type. The result: You’ll look and feel refreshed and better than ever!
