The Importance of Your Skin Being Ready for Summer

20 June 2017

Now that summer is in full swing, we can only imagine the list of things on your to-do list: fish out the bathing suits, flips flops and sunhats, pick up some sunscreen, plan the next family beach day, or a trip to the water park for the kids… but there’s one more thing to add to that checklist… taking care of your skin. Even if you can’t find the time for regular facials, or a strict skincare regimen is overwhelming, the turn of the season is the most important time to show your skin some extra love. The change in the weather can be abrupt, especially here in New York City. Your skin needs some TLC and we’ve got just the trick.

Getting rid of all the dead skin cells and build up from the past months is one of the most effective ways to prep your skin for the upcoming season. The Laser Retexturizing treatment is a favorite among both men and women, and combines exfoliation with a rejuvenating laser treatment to stimulate collagen production and reveal a smoother and brighter complexion immediately. You’ll reap the benefits of this treatment all summer long!

One form of exfoliation, excellent on its own or paired in the Laser Retexturizing treatment is Dermaplaning. Dermaplaning gently removes the outer most layers of dead skins using a 10 gauge scalpel. This painless treatment removes peach fuzz, allowing your products to sink into your skin or makeup application to appear flawless. Dermaplaning’s effects are immediate and include brighter, smoother skin. Even better, this treatment is safe for women who are pregnant or nursing!

Another great treatment for the turn of the season is a Glycolic Peel. As we age, our skin cell turnover naturally slows down, which can lead to a dull, dry appearance. Peels stimulate that cell turnover, restoring the radiant and vibrant appearance of youthful skin.

If you’re looking to revamp your skincare routine or add something to your beach bag arsenal, here are a few summer-time favorites that allow you to treat your skin at home or on the go.

Rose Water is an essential product all year long, but even more so during the summer. This mist is hands-down the most versatile product, and is perfect for daily pick-me ups on hot summer days. Try keeping yours in the refrigerator for a refreshing and cooling spray. Rose Water is known for its calming properties, and is excellent for reducing redness and irritation from the hot, sticky weather. Rose Water also soothes, which makes it the perfect toner if you accidentally get sunburn.  At Tribeca MedSpa, we love to carry Rose Water with us to wipe our skin down in between sunscreen applications, or to hydrate after a swim… Chlorine and salt water can be harsh!

Another must-have is SkinCeuticals’ Phyto Corrective Masque. This cooling gel is packed with concentrated botanical extracts, great to soothe aggravated skin or to hydrate and restore. This masque alleviates discomfort while reducing redness, making it the perfect masque post-sun exposure or after swimming in chlorine and salt water.

Vitamin C is an essential product for all year long, but can be especially useful during the summertime. SkinCeutical’s CE Ferulic works on a molecular level to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and other environmental damage. CE Ferulic’s unique formulation also soothes the skin, and is perfect to help heal sunburn.

Of course, we can’t forget about sunscreen, so read about some of our favorites here and protect your skin from those harmful rays. You’ll thank us later.

Did Somebody Say Baby?

03 February 2017

Whether you’re expecting, nursing or planning for a baby, Tribeca MedSpa has plenty of treatments and products that are safe and effective for a woman with a baby on her mind. Here is a list of pregnancy-safe services, perfect for a little pampering or for combating hormonal skin:

• Customized Facials: At Tribeca MedSpa, no two facials are the same. Whether you are looking to detoxify clogged pores, nourish dry skin, or both, one of our customized facials will leave your skin feeling hydrated and rejuvenated.

Dermaplaning: Our Dermaplaning treatment gently removes the outer most layer of dead skin, revealing a softer, smoother complexion.   Vellus hair, also referred to as peach fuzz, is removed during the treatment, and the immediate result is fresh, bright skin.

Vibradermabrasion : Vibradermabrasion is the latest technology as a safer, less invasive alternative to Micro­dermabrasion. This treatment exfoliates dry skin cells leaving fresh, healthy cells for nourishment and hydration.

• Stem Cell Therapy: Stem Cell Therapy is ideal for anyone looking to address minimal to moderate wrinkles, fine lines and skin laxity. Stem Cell Therapy combines Vibradermabrasion or Dermaplaning to exfoliate the skin, followed by a topical stem cell serum to promote a more youthful, refreshed and radiant appearance.
