Laser Hair Removal: A Critical Aspect of the Transgender Journey

There’s one truth about the transgender journey that everyone can agree on: All trans people experience their transition differently. This makes sense, given that there are a limitless number of gender expressions and ways of transitioning, and no matter what your journey looks like, it’s a process unique to you. At Tribeca MedSpa, we respect how personal this process is, and provide a welcoming, friendly environment; top-quality services; and the expertise necessary to make your treatment plan a success.

“I have a lot of experience working with the transgender community, and I know that no matter where you are in your transition, you’re going through a lot. It’s a joy for me to help make our transgender patients feel super comfortable,” says Medical Aesthetician Merve Aykanat. Merve divides her time with us at Tribeca Med Spa and at the Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery, and has focused her career on working with transgender patients undergoing their transition process. “For our transgender patients, laser hair removal is about making life easier and helping you feel more like yourself. Laser hair removal treatments can really increase your confidence.” 

For trans women and some nonbinary people, laser hair removal can be an exciting step in your journey. It’s also a great, noninvasive option suited to wherever you are in your transition process, whether or not you’re opting for surgery. Unlike many other facilities who tout the benefits of one laser hair removal system, at Tribeca MedSpa, we have chosen to invest in a range of laser hair removal equipment. This is because some laser hair removal options are better suited to certain skin types and tones than others, and we want to tailor an individualized, safe and effective treatment plan that’s best suited for you.

When considering what kinds of laser hair removal treatments you may want to get, we will work with you to develop a laser hair removal treatment plan ideal for your needs. Merve notes that many of our patients opt for full body laser treatment, however, some of our trans patients choose to start with individualized areas. Areas of treatment for trans patients often include:

Full face, including cheeks, upper lip, chin, and neck

Chest, including areolas

Back

Legs, including feet and toes

Arms, including hands and fingers

Bikini line, also Brazilian Bikini line

Butt, also Inner Buttocks

Our laser hair removal systems are proven to be safe and effective. While there is some minor discomfort associated with the procedure—it’s often likened to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against your skin—we work to provide a gentle, spa-like experience so that you leave feeling confident and refreshed. As we discuss your options with you and build a treatment plan, you may choose to incorporate another service, like our Multi Mask Facial, into your treatment days so that your laser hair removal feels even more like an enjoyable day at the medspa (and you’ll leave with glowing, fresh skin, too). 

“I take so much pride in working with members of the trans community,” Merve says. “And I just love helping my patients feel good about themselves!” If you’re considering laser hair removal as part of your transition process and you want to work with a team that cares about the trans community and understands your individualized needs, Tribeca MedSpa is the right home for you. 

If you’re ready to make this next step in your transition journey, request an appointment with Merve today.

5 Tips for Transitioning from Summer to Fall Skin Care

In the summertime, New York air tends to be humid, which helps protect your skin barrier and keeps your skin looking and feeling healthy (even if it makes your hair frizz). However, once the weather starts to get colder, the air outside becomes dryer, and inside, heating systems have a way of making your apartment feel like the Sahara.

In addition to the changes in humidity that require a transition from summer to fall skin care, you also have to repair sun-damaged skin. Even if you’re very good about wearing SPF 30+ when you’re outside in the daytime, you’re bound to have gotten some summer sun in, and being exposed to extra wind, sweat, sea salt, and chlorine can wreak havoc on our skin’s health.

All of these factors add up to one big truth: As we move from summer to fall, it’s time to gift ourselves some serious skin rejuvenation. This is the time to slough off any summertime damage, invest in a sun damaged skin treatment, and get our skin prepped and ready for the winter months to come. 

1. Lock In Skin Moisture With Squalane

Non-comedogenic, soothing oils like squalane pack a pig punch when it comes to locking in moisture. Our bodies naturally produce a version of this oil, but sadly, we naturally make less of it starting in our 30s, so instead, we can give our bodies’ natural production a boost with a high-quality, plant-derived version. Squalane is an ideal sun damaged skin treatment for repairing dry, scaly, and sunburned skin. The combination of hyaluronic and squalane rejuvenates the skin for a radiant youthfulness and helps prevent premature aging.

We recommend Camille of NY’s Squalane Moisture Seal and Khus + Khus’ Sen Face Serum.

2. Undo Summertime Skin Damage

From chlorine to sun exposure—not to mention Covid-related anxiety—the summer has been rough on all of our body’s systems. As is always the case, those stressors tend to have a serious impact on our body’s largest organ: the skin. That’s why it’s a great idea to gift yourself a session or three of important self-care (and skin care). Our Reset, Renew, and Revitalize packages are specifically designed to repair sun damaged skin. A sun damaged skin treatment is ideal for refreshing post-summer skin, helping you look and feel your best for the fall.

3. Exfoliate Appropriately

Given that everyone’s skin is unique, there’s no exact guidance on the number of times to exfoliate each week, regardless if you’re caring for summer skin or wintertime skin. However, in general, exfoliating helps to replenish skin by sloughing off dead skin and removing impurities (that goes for both chemical exfoliators as well as physical ones).  By buffing away these dead cells, new cells can come in healthier and without obstruction. This process also improves the effectiveness of moisturizers as the dead cells block moisture from the layers of live skin cells that actually need it, and for many, wintertime weather calls for serious moisturizing.

4. Incorporate A Lip Treatment

In the summer, we’re always at risk for forgetting to put sunscreen on our ears, which is why the ear is considered an extremely high-risk location for skin cancer. But in the fall, it’s our lips’ turn to be forgotten—especially when we combine wearing masks every day with precious little humidity in the air. That’s why it’s especially important to keep lips hydrated (and prevent premature aging) by expanding your fall skin care products to include a lip repair treatment that hydrates, heals, and can help repair sun damaged skin.

5. Remember To Give Your Hands Some Extra TLC

During winter, the low humidity outside and dry air inside naturally contribute to hands becoming dry and cracked. Add to that equation frequent hand washing, and you basically annihilate any remaining natural oils left in your skin. An intense hand cream is one of the most important fall skin care products, and if you have extra dry skin—or deal with conditions like carpal tunnel or arthritis—consider adding a body serum to the mix, too. One made with phytocannabinoids can have anti-inflammatory properties that may help you feel better in more ways than one. (And a body serum can double as a cuticle oil, too—it’s always a good idea to keep your nails extra hydrated in the winter months).

We recommend the Khus+ Khus Copious Body Serum product which in addition to being great for your skin this formula also works to help relieve tension, pain, sleep, stress, and mental fatigue. 

After a stressful summer, this is the perfect moment to take a little time for yourself, do something that makes you feel good, and give yourself the opportunity to hit the “reset” button. Besides, a stitch in time really can save nine—when you opt for a sun-damaged skin treatment just as the summer ends, you’re accelerating your body’s ability to heal itself before the winter months to come.

Request a complimentary skin analysis consultation to determine which package is right to help you replenish your skin and transition from summer to fall skin care.

The Ultimate Beauty and Health Guide after Quarantine

We are all feeling it. Months of homestay have not been kind. More time spent on devices and sitting in chairs is leading to new aging and health concerns. ‘Tech neck’ is the premature wrinkling of our necks from looking down at our screens, hours upon hours. At the same time, our skin pays a price from increased exposure to UV light emissions. Protective face masks are essential, but ‘maskne’ – a new cause of acne – is real. Not to mention back pain from sedentary routines and lack of sleep from anxiety. Tribeca Medspa has some solutions!

Let’s start with Tech Neck. Just as we develop deep nasal labial foldlines from smiling, we create neck lines from endless surfing on handheld devices. Thankfully, there are multiple lines of defense to regain that beautiful neck. For those of us with lines and wrinkles already settled in, Botox might be your next move. A safe neurotoxin, Botox relaxes the platysma muscles, restoring a smooth appearance.  To address sagginess, Ultherapy and PDO Threads are ideal to lift and tighten as well as to improve lines and wrinkles.

Another consequence of screen exposure that warrants more consideration is the Blue Light or High-Energy Visible Light (HEV) they emit. Recommendations for combating the hyperpigmentation that may be associated with HEV are professional strength chemical peels. Alpha hydroxy acids such as Glycolic peels and Lactic peels stimulate collagen and encourage the shedding of surface skin to reveal a fresher, healthier look with a more even color and texture.

Moving from high tech to low tech, prolonged use of fabric masks is leading to skin issues such as acne mechanica aka ‘maskne’.  The friction and pressure from masks rubbing against your face leads to irritation and inflammation. Masks also trap bacteria and organisms, causing clogged pores, folliculitis and acne. The right skin care routine can lessen mask-related skin damage and breakouts. Make sure to properly cleanse with a gentle cleanser. Avoid over exfoliating and keep skin moisturized with protective ingredients like ceramide and hyaluronic acid. Spot treat acne with salicylic acid and treat your skin to a weekly CBD mask to maintain a glowy complexion. Tribeca Medspa offers Virtual Consultations to help you select the best products for your skin type.

For many of us, quarantine is forcing more downtime.  Although rest is always a good thing, extended rest leads to loss of muscle tone. Lack of abdominal tone can lead to back pain. Cooltone is used for body contouring from the core to thighs. Its high-powered coil electromagnetic simulation applicators induct muscle contractions that exercise cannot match. As a result, it not only tones muscle definition but when used on the abdomen, it can also help with back pain.

Quarantine restrictions are slowly being lifted, but the anxiety and changes in our routines and sleep patterns may continue to have an effect on our health and wellness until Covid-19 is eradicated.  Tribeca Medspa Medical Director, Dr. Ginsberg says that “loss of sleep decreases collagen production and increases glucocorticoid production.”  We recommend Hush & Hush, Mind Your Mind’s blend of tryptophan, valerian root, holy basil leaf, and magnesium which quiets the mind and promotes sleep. With this information, we hope you can get some sleep. Tribeca Medspa is here for you.

We will also send them home with a full personalized homecare products regime.

 “I am nominating my best friend, Bryce. She is an occupational therapist at an NYC hospital. She helps COVID survivors regain their strength and independence to one day return home to their loved ones. When she is not at the hospital, she is sewing masks to raise money to donate to small businesses and families affected by COVID, (she has raised over $2500 to charities)Not only is she an artist, hero, but she is the most loving, supportive best friend one can have. Her positivity is what is contagious, and she puts smiles on people’s faces daily!” —Rissy

“Kelly is my best friend of 15+ years. She works at Jersey City Medical as an RN in the ICU unit and has worked nonstop since COVID started -picking up extra shifts, night shifts, etc. I have not heard one complaint out of her mouth since COVID has started despite her increased hours and efforts. Every time I ask how she’s doing she responds happily and how she is appreciative to be helping people and doing her part! Her brother also just beat cancer prior to COVID-19 so she has been through a lot the past 4 months and continues to remain positive through it all. I am so proud of everything she’s done and how selfless she has been throughout it all. Kelly deserves something for herself.”  —Sarah

All Our Heroes’ Stories 

“My sister has been working in a COVID ICU in the Bronx since late March. My sister has always been my hero but that has become even more apparent during this time. Kristen has been going in for 12 hour shifts, 4 days a week. She has also worked many weeks of overnight shifts. My sister is a strong person but I’ve noticed the way that this pandemic has worn on her. Not only the demanding hours, but also the emotional impact of watching so many of her patients die, the uncertainty around this virus, and having to FaceTime families to say goodbye to their loved ones.” —Lauren


“My wife is a PA at NYU in the ED and she is awesome. She wears a mask 12hrs a day, makes time to pump at work, and wakes up early to feed our four month old.” —Greg


“Brooke is an occupational therapist on the front lines at NYU hospital. She works on the acute care floor where she has been exposed to COVID multiple times. However, she never complained once and kept giving the best therapeutic care to all her patients. In the midst of the madness, Brooke had to postpone her wedding due to the crisis. She is so so deserving of this pampering.” —Jennifer


“My fiancée is a pediatric dental resident at Montefiore hospital in the Bronx, She was redeployed to a COVID testing site in the Bronx, one of the busiest COVID testing sites in the state of New York, with one of the highest positive infection rates in the state. In the midst of all the chaos, we have been trying to figure plans for our wedding that was supposed to be November 7th of this year. Unfortunately, many of our guests (her family) are coming from Korea, and are uncertain about travel, even as restrictions ease up in the US. She was so looking forward to having all of her family together for our wedding celebration, and now, it is starting to seem like none of them will be able to come, or we will have to reschedule and lose our deposits and possibly even vendors. It has certainly been a source of stress for me, but again, she has not complained about ANY of it.” —Jay


“I am nominating my sister Michelle. She works as a Nurse Practitioner in the COVID ICU at a hospital in NYC. She has shown great strength and courage through this pandemic. She has been trying to save as many lives as possible and risks her life every day for her patients. She calls family members daily to update them.” —Jenn


“ I nominate my girlfriend Jenn for this wellness spa package. She works at NYP-Columbia, the hospital that got NY’s first COVID patient when this all began at the beginning of March. She has been having to wear a mask at work for 13 hours straight for the past 4 months, leading to bruises on her cheeks and even some sores. She went through many dark days and weeks as her and her co-workers fought to figure out this disease, FaceTiming patients family’s so they could say goodbye, holding patients hands before they were intubated or even patients hands as they passed away. She questioned if she was meant to be a nurse because of how helpless she felt in caring for her patients while trying to protect herself & me at home.” —Jimmy


“Amber is my cousin and she’s a doctor in the emergency room at NYU. She has worked tirelessly to help care for COVID patients throughout the hospital. And due to this crisis she also had to postpone her wedding. “Jackie


“She’s a very hard working 1st year resident who cared for many covid patients. She too had covid but returned to the front line as soon as she could. Thanks for considering her.” Patti


“I am a social worker at NYU Langone, required to report to work during COVID19 to assist with providing emotional support to patient and families who were not only coping with medical trauma, but with the pain of separation due to restricted visitation. Sometimes these patients were homeless, or frail elderly who were admitted from a nursing home, or even young parents afraid to return to home where they may infect their families and loved ones.” —Cara


“Emy was supposed to get married this summer (July 25) and I was supposed to be her bridesmaid. She ended up having to cancel her wedding due to COVID-19 and has spent the last few months working 6 days a week to help patients as a Nurse Practitioner. Emy is so deserving of this, and absolutely needs something good to happen to her right now so please choose her! Thank you for your consideration.” —Lacey


“I’ve known Alex for years and she is one of the most caring people I’ve ever met. She is a nurse working in a COVID floor at New York Pres hospital. She has taken on the emotional burden of working with patients on ventilators and being there for them emotionally when their families cannot enter the hospital. She somehow can keep a positive attitude through all of this and it is something I admire her for!” —Rachel


“I’m nominating my wife Deirdre who is an essential worker in the city! Our little boy Liam arrived 6 weeks early on 1st Feb 2020. It was such a surprise and Liam spent 3 weeks in the NICU. Unfortunately, due to travel restrictions our family were unable to come over to help. Deirdre went back to work on 8th May, providing nursing care to a client. Deirdre works 12 hour shifts and is for sure very deserving of this amazing prize.” —Eoghan


“Elena is a nurse in NY and there’s no one else I would recommend! She’s amazing and has put her life on the line to help so many Americans and New Yorkers. Elena is truly one of a kind and would do anything for anyone. She deserves this so much.” —Morgan


“Emily has worked tirelessly night and day as a nurse practitioner on the front lines at NYU Langone Hospital. She loves Tribeca Med Spa and deserves some much needed pampering.” —Bobby


“My 52 year old Sicilian friend Lauren is a unique beauty. She has a Roman nose and the cutest crooked teeth that she plays up and doesn’t try to hide or “fix.” I have known her for 8 years but she has been a nurse for a lot longer. When I met her she was working overnights in the city’s grittiest trauma ER – King’s County – where my husband had been taken following a horrific car crash. She not only took care of him but also sent me reassuring texts throughout that first night where it was touch and go and I was home with my 3 children who were young at the time. Most recently she has been in the COVID ICU in the Bronx which is a long commute from her home in mid Brooklyn. She works a 12 hr shift then has to self-quarantine from her fiancee when she returns. She is capable dedicated and compassionate and I’d love to see her treated to a special makeover at my fave med spa.” —Lucy


“Nicole has always been a giving person in the 24 years I’ve known her. From bringing home stray animals to people astray, she has always had a helping and giving heart. 15 years ago, she opened her home up to being a foster parent and has since adopted five children that she mostly raises on her own. She has parlayed this trait into her nursing career and has been sick for over a month with COVID and still keeps her positive attitude. I would like her to feel appreciated just as she has always made me feel.” —Arlene

CoolTone: Yes, It Really Is That Cool!

CoolTone just hit the market a couple of months ago, and sure, that might seem like years ago, but it’s so new, we’re just starting to learn what it can do, and what kinds of results people are seeing from it.

 

How does it work?

CoolTone uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to strengthen, tone, and firm the muscles of the abs, butt, and thighs.* So even though “Cool” is in its name, it doesn’t use the same fat-freezing technology that its body contouring sibling CoolSculpting does. Its powerful MMS technology means that electromagnetic energy is shot into your muscles to cause involuntary contractions. Those contractions cause your muscles strengthen and get defined. One session on your abs is like doing twenty THOUSAND crunches!

 

Where does it work?

So now we know that CoolTone penetrates below the fat layer to strengthen and tone our muscles. That begs the question, “Where exactly can I use it to tone up?” Excellent question. CoolTone is a great, non-surgical way to tone, firm, and strengthen your abs, butt, and thighs. Think of all those areas becoming leaner, more defined, and lifted. Yep, that’s the image I think we’re all looking for in the mirror.

 

How many treatments does it take?

We recommend four treatment sessions within two weeks to get the best results. Of course, it all depends on the look you’re trying to achieve, and the body Mother Nature gave you. Not everyone wants a chiseled six-pack, so we can treat you based on whatever side of the firmness spectrum you want to be on. Within just a few weeks, your spectacular results will start revealing themselves.

 

That sounds fabulous, but can it be even better?

Yes. Yes, it can. Before you come in for CoolTone, start with a few cycles of CoolSculpting to reduce fat, then follow up with CoolTone, and stand back and bask in all your toned up glory! And of course, if you’re going to spend your time and money sculpting and toning, we cannot stress proper nutrition and regular exercise enough. You wouldn’t get your car detailed and immediately start filling it with trash, right? Okay, maybe some french fries…in moderation.

 

After all this talk about contouring your body in the newest, most exciting, least sweaty ways, are you getting pumped to get out of quarantine and get ready for summer?

Book your CoolTone now!

 

*Results are based on custom outcome plans. Individual results will be based on your personal goals.

The fuss about Manual Lymphatic Drainage is true

Manual Lymphatic Drainage. MLD. You’ve probably heard about it by now. Athletes swear by it. Influencers are talking about it. Even doctors are writing about what MLD has done for their patients.

So just what is MLD then? Well in short, Manual Lymphatic Drainage improves fluid circulation, speeding up healing. See, your lymphatic system helps your body get rid of toxins and defend against infection. It’s an organ of your immune system! And given all the talk of Corona Virus, now’s a great time to talk about avoiding infections.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage reduces all kinds of inflammation, from post-procedure swelling, to treating acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, burns, puffy eyes, and more. It can even calm allergies and the effects of New York City air pollution! Everyone can enjoy the benefits of MLD. When we’re at rest is when our bodies repair and rejuvenate themselves. This is the most underrated thing we know about the body, and one of the hardest things for us New Yorkers to do…actually making time to relax and rest. An MLD session increases the circulation of lymph and fluids in our system, and the drainage of those fluids cleans the tissues of the body, helping that repair and rejuvenation happen faster.

We’re now offering MLD as a standalone, or a companion to any other treatment. We’re certified practitioners of the Vodder Technique, considered the gold standard in MLD. With the Vodder Technique, as with any real MLD, you can expect an extremely light touch and rhythmic stretching. It’s so relaxing and revitalizing, it’s “like a facial from the inside out.”

We highly recommend Manual Lymphatic Drainage prior to and after Plasma Pen, and post-procedure for PDO Threads. Great BEFORE and after cosmetic surgery. It’s also great before a facelift, because we’re giving the surgeon optimal healthy tissue to work with, and it’s great after a facelift to decrease healing time and inflammation, and encourage repair.

ANXIOUS ABOUT IN-OFFICE COSMETIC PROCEDURES? PRO-­NOX TAKES THE EDGE OFF!

At Tribeca Medspa, we recognize that many of our patients, regardless of experience, are uncomfortable, even anxious about the pain and discomfort associated with cosmetic procedures. PRO-NOX is the solution! The versatile, gas delivery technology makes any procedure more comfortable. PRO-NOX relies upon a clinically proven Nitrous Oxide Delivery System that is designed to deliver an oxygen and nitrous oxide gaseous solution that relieves pain during all in-office procedures.

How is PRO-NOX different than similar technologies?
The functionally effective PRO-NOX system is 100% customizable and controlled by the patient. It’s easy to use, adjustable based on the patient’s own needs — and most importantly, it’s safe. With PRO-NOX you get exactly what you need to mitigate pain and discomfort on your terms.

How does PRO-NOX work?
As a self-administered treatment, the amount of gas is regulated by the patient. The gas is released and inhaled through the mouth with nearly instantaneous effects. Because there is no wait time for PRO-NOX to fully take effect, you get exactly what you need as you need it. The effects are also short-term and wear off within approximately 10-15 minutes, so there is little recovery time required. Once the procedure is complete, you can be on your way.

What treatments can it be used for?
Ultherapy, Fraxel, Nova Thread, WarmSculpting, Injectables or PRO-NOX can be used upon request!

At Tribeca Medspa, we recognize that many of our patients, regardless of experience, are uncomfortable, even anxious about the pain and discomfort associated with cosmetic procedures. PRO-NOX is the...

AS THE SEASONS CHANGE, SO DOES YOUR SKIN!

There’s a chill in the air and the fall season is settling in. As we switch our summer wardrobe to fall, we must also change our skin care regimen. In the transition between seasons, going from hot to cold, you may notice that your skin changes as well. As the air around us gets colder, it also becomes drier resulting in the air pulling moisture from your skin causing it to look dull and dehydrated.

Sometimes the effects are subtle, sometimes they’re more pronounced. You may notice that as your skin loses moisture, it can become more sensitive, more visible fine lines and wrinkles, increased telangiectasia (spider veins) and thirsty for some extra TLC. Suddenly, you’re not putting your best face forward. A few small tweaks to your skincare routine, along with an aesthetic treatment, can have your skin glowing in no time.

TMS to the rescue! Make an appointment today for a seasonal skin analysis and let our experts help your skin transition into the fall season.
