"Bonus: great retail products such as Carita, SkinCeuticals and Epicuren"

"SkinCareLab offers a combination of pampering and therapeutic services in a modern environment with a minimalist aesthetic. An experienced, dermatologist-supervised staff administers skin-care treatments for men and women that keep pace with the latest developments in the industry. All aesthetic procedures are performed in Dr. Katchen's dermatology practice, housed one floor below SkinCareLab. Patients may consult with Dr. Katchen on their skin-care concerns. Every guest at SkinCareLab receives a private room and a private shower.

This spa stands out for its extensive facial menu (12 varieties), each narrowly targeted -as opposed to the tho- and three-in-one facials found everywhere. The Urban Detox facial, a deep cleanser, is different,too-not aggressive but gentle because it uses an oxygenating cream before extractions rather than steam, which can weaken capillaries, and because it's not geared just toward oily skin. By using marine products, like a redness-reducing algae mask, it both clarifies and hydrates. Our aesthetician pick: Viviane Kervick. Bonus: great retail products such as Carita, SkinCeuticals, and Epicuren. Tell your significant other to come with you; 40% of the clientele are men."
