Laser Cosmetica Microdermabrasion

The motto at Laser Cosmetica is “We obsess so you won’t have to.” After testing out their microdermabrasion treatment, we couldn’t agree more: Our skin is glowing, clear, and free of flaws.

The treatment began with a quick but thorough skin diagnosis: A few blackheads, a few sun spots, both of which would easily be exfoliated away by the treatment. The aesthetician then applied a gentle foaming cleanser “chock full of antioxidants like pomegranate, green tea and olive extracts” to give our skin a healthy dose of vitamins.

The sensation of the microdermabrasion machine, a vacuum-like device which exfoliates your skin via small crystals, felt like a light suction. The aesthetician made sure to adjust the intensity to our skin type, and proceeded to run the machine over our face first using horizontal strokes, then vertical strokes, in order to ensure all areas were covered. It was painless and took about 30 minutes.

Following the treatment, she gently removed the blackheads, which “usually come out easily after the microdermabrasion.” Well, she was right! We were shocked to find that not a single pesky spot remained, and even more surprised that our skin showed no sign of irritation and we could return to work right away.

The aesthetician advised us not to wear makeup for at least a few hours because, “The pores are open from the treatment and will absorb products.” Another tip: Wear sunscreen for at least 2 weeks (although, as we were dutifully reminded, you should always wear SPF!) since the fresh layer of skin is more susceptible to sunburn.

This treatment is great for a quick skin pick-me-up and will leave you looking refreshed and glowing. After this treatment we’re the ones obsessed – with Laser Cosmetica!

Advanced Skincare at Laser Cosmetica

We LOVE Laser Cosmetica’s tagline – “We obsess so you won’t have to.” It really says it all – this spa cares about your appearance and wants to make the act of looking effortless actually effortless. It kind of reminds us of a new spin on the old classic Vidal Sassoon commercial – “If you don’t look good, we don’t look good.”

As you may be able to tell from their name, Laser Cosmetica is the expert on laser aesthetic services. They specialize in laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation through laser procedures. Laser Cosmetica only uses the most cutting edge technology and state of the art equipment, ensuring clients the best possible results.

Highlighted here are a few of the best skin treatments money can buy, all available during Spa Week for $50. All all six New York locations are participating, so don’t miss out on your chance to book these services while they’re deeply discounted:

Photo Facial: This gentle treatment uses light and thermal energy to promote collagen production and restore skin to a more youthful state. Considered a revolutionary advance in laser cosmetics, a photo facial will remove discoloration and textural irregularities, and can improve an array of skin conditions, like sun spots or red blotching from rosacea. On average, symptoms improve over 75%, leaving healthier, more vibrant skin to shine through! In short: you’ll be ready for your close-up!

Laser Acne Therapy:  Perfect skin is attainable when you enlist the help of the highly trained estheticians at Laser Cosmetica. Laser Acne Therapy uses both intense pulsed light and suction to purify pores from the inside out. The technology used dries and flattens pimples and helps to decrease the frequency and severity of breakouts – like an armed attack on your skin’s peskiest predators. You’re sure to be happy with the winning results!

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is one treatment that offers immediate, noticeable improvements in your skin. Laser Cosmetica uses the DiamondTome system, which leaves skin smoother and more radiant. It uses a micro fine diamond encrusted wand to brush away the topmost layer of skin, so that the dewy fresh skin below can sparkle. This non-invasive treatment is pain-free, completely safe, and proves that diamonds really are a girl’s best friend.

Wellness Gone Wild! The Spa Week Spring 2012 Video

From perming my lashes to cleansing my colon, it’s safe to say I’m a spa addict. Have you watched the official Spa Week Spring 2012 video yet? Wellness has officially gone wild:

A trip to the spa is always an adventure – especially with a camera in hand. Okay, Michelle: don’t let the camera get under the Vichy shower… keep your hand steady even though this is the best scalp massage of your life… oh no, move the tripod a little more left because your butt is most definitely showing. I may not be entirely relaxed and zenned out on my many filming escapades, but I’m definitely still enjoying myself and reaping all the benefits of each therapy.

YOU, on the other hand, have only one thing to think about during your Spa Week adventure April 16-22: YOU. Your health, your bliss, your moment. Spend an extra half hour reading VOGUE in the relaxation room, tell your massage therapist HARDER if you want it, and learn about skincare from your esthetician, even if you can’t understand half of what she’s saying.

This season I had a full Saturday of beauty at Spa Martier, where Yuki, my favorite nail artist in NYC, created a glittery manicure masterpiece while Murad gave me a gorgeous blowout after delivering THE greatest hair wash/scalp massage of my LIFE. I discovered how much I never knew I wanted a lash perm at Skintology (home of vacation-like tropical walls). Mascara shows up so much better now! I downward-dogged with Stephanie Eris, the mind-body manager at Exhale Spa and she taught me the nuances of achieving the best upward dog possible, and at Perfect Spa I learned that freshly shredded apple makes for an extremely natural scrub – and that Vichy showers are really difficult to film by yourself. Bunya Citi Spa Thai’d me up in a dynamic mixed-modality massage then purified every last pore on my face, including that sweet spa rave.  Completely Bare lasered off my unwanted bikini hair, and Laser Cosmetica lit up my face with a photo facial to smooth out unwanted redness. Andddddd I pooped again.

Book your $50 appointments, and get ready to turn OFF your phones – unless you feel compelled to Instagram it all like I did…
