We Tried Skinney Med Spa in NYC and Here’s What Happened

Are you looking for the ultimate spa experience? Look no further than Skinney Med Spa, located in the luxurious Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. As part of our Spa Go-See series, we showcase the most prestigious spas, their unique offerings, and what you need to know before you go. It’s lead by our Editor in Chief, Sterling Jones.

Skinney Med Spa Experience

During my visit to Skinney Med Spa, I was impressed with their exclusive Biologique Recherche products and range of services, including Ultherapy, Injectables, Thermage Skin Tightening, Morpheus 8, and more. I arrived a bit early for my appointment to check out the counter. The beautiful counter was designed to highlight the best products that Skinney had available. Plus, the counter was well staffed to tell you all their offers. I spoke with Jessica, the counter manager at Skinney Med Spa in Saks. She who explained that Skinney Med Spa is all about providing high-quality services to clients who want the best of the best.

Of course, I wanted the best of the best. After so many facial treatments, I found what makes a huge difference is the spa experience. Jessica answered all of my questions about my service and other services that they had available. She also provided me with the macaron and something to drink from the Saks bakery and took me through a tour through the beauty department as I waited for my service. 

The Hydrafacial Service

The Hydrafacial experience at Skinney Med Spa is a must-try. I was introduced to my esthetician, Shana, as my introduction into the world of Hydrafacial. I was provided with a warm robe, warm table and room like smelt like roses. I was excited to get started in my Hydrafacial experience. Hydrafacial is a company that created a new method that combines a peel and a facial in its Syndeo machine. The machine helps to deliver hydration into the skin with its magic wand.  

Shana began to cleanse my face using Biologue Recherche products to remove my sunscreen and other external aggressors before explaining the explaining the three-step Hydrafacial process. Its magic wand deeply cleansed my skin with a light and gentle peel to remove the dead skin skills for a new layer of skin. Next, it exfoliated my skin to remove all impurities buried under my dead skin cells. Finally, it added moisture back into my skin with a moisturizing booster serum. 

I enjoyed that the suction was gentle around my sensitive areas like my eyes and nose. It did not feel invasive or harmful to my skin. The best part? Zero downtime and a glowing complexion that lasted for a week. Of course, Shana made the facial more luxurious with a massage and application of other products like a mask, a lip mask, facial mist, a moisturizer and a sunscreen. 

Skinney Med Spa mentioned that they were the best of the best, and I agreed. My facial experience with Hydrafacial was top-notch. The glow that I had after my service made me feel confident and happy to continue the week without makeup. I highly recommend Skinney Med Spa to anyone looking for a luxurious spa experience.

Thanks to Upkeep Beauty for making the booking experience easy. I used their app to find a Hydrafacial provider who met my standards and booked my service in less than five minutes. You can read my interview with the founder of Upkeep Beauty here.
