It’s no secret that New York City is a bit cramped. Whether you’re on the subway, at a restaurant or even at the doctors office, New Yorkers quickly learn that rules about personal space just don’t apply here. It’s just something we get used to and deal with on a daily basis.

That’s why it was a breath of fresh air when I walked into Trifecta Med Spa’s new 57th Street location. Their treatment rooms aren’t just New York City big, they’re downright huge! Actually, I’m pretty sure their Coolsculpting room is bigger than my entire apartment. It also has a huge flatscreen TV (something I definitely don’t have), so I’d happily pack a bag and live there if I could.

What I’m trying to say is that it was beyond relaxing to go from the congested subway to a brand new pristine and spacious spa. I don’t often find myself in such a calm and serene space, but when I do I really like to savor it. That’s why I was happy that my treatment du jour was a quick and easy Hydrafacial!

Hydrafacials are a non-invasive and non-irritating treatment. They improve the overall health of skin by utilizing serums filled with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid to boost hydration, reverse the signs of aging, and protect skin from environmental damage. The treatment consists of just five quick and painless steps, so the whole thing only lasts around 20 minutes. It’s definitely a treatment you could stop in for during lunch when your skin could use some freshening up.

While I was getting my treatment the esthetician happily walked me through each of the five steps so I would know exactly what she was doing. First she used a serum with lactic and glycolic acid to give my skin a deep cleaning and dislodge dead skin cells. Then she applied glycolic and salicylic acids in order to exfoliate and peel my skin simultaneously. This softened the sebum on my face and removed impurities. After that, she used a painless extraction tool that suctioned out all the gross gunk from my pores.

Once the extraction was done she applied a serum with hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and earth mineral peptides. This final step boosts collagen and elastin production to eliminate fine lines. It’s also deeply hydrating! After the treatment I was impressed when I looked in a mirror and saw that my face was completely blackhead-free. I was also loving how refreshed, bright, and dewy my skin looked.

Hydrafacials are great for any skin type, but they’re especially effective for anyone with oily or acne-prone skin. At Trifecta Med Spa they start at $175 with the option for various add-ons depending on a patient’s skincare needs.

My experience at Trifecta Med Spa was delightful from start to finish. The staff of registered nurses and licensed estheticians were super helpful when it came to answering all of my questions about their various treatments. I also spoke to the physician on staff about their Ultherapy, a treatment that uses an ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. I was curious about the Ultherapy because the FDA-approved treatment gives results that last for longer than two years. If that’s not intriguing enough, virtually ageless Jennifer Aniston is their new spokesperson. If you’re a frequent reader you know I’m all about trying the latest in spa technology, so you can imagine what I have in mind for my next adventure in fending off the inevitability of growing old.

    HydraFacial is a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that delivers the beneficial properties of an elevated chemical peel in a series of specific steps for smooth healthy skin. The procedure also involves painlessly removing any exorbitance of oil that has accumulated in the pores and hydrating the skin with antioxidants.
