Describing itself as an "ultra-relaxing urban escape," SKN Spa radiates tranquility from its outdoor patio garden to its private treatment rooms stocked with the latest aesthetic technology. Aestheticians specialize in customized, clinical facials that harness the hydrating, age-reversing powers of firming radio frequencies, vitamin C and collagen-rich serums, or age-spot clearing IPL. Hot-stone massages and scrubs enriched with brown sugar and Dead Sea–mud help leave bodies feeling soft and stress-free, while unwanted hair can be swiftly evicted with light technology, sugaring, strongly worded letters, or traditional wax treatments.
Though only one accent wall drenched in lilac disrupts Paris Skin Care Center of Hoboken’s all-white décor, you won’t be missing color. It appears within the kaleidoscopic palettes at the cosmetics counter, manned by professional makeup artist and owner, Sofia. Using both airbrush and traditional techniques, she makes eyes pop with shadow, gives lips a glossy sheen, and contours cheekbones worthy of a ventriloquist’s dummy—all while masking blemishes. Semi-permanent lash extensions, in either basic or dramatic styles, complete freshly made faces. And though makeup is Sofia’s forte, clients will also want to check out her other spa services. She uses an extra-gentle blend of beeswax and cotton-oil, for example, to minimize irritation and ingrown hairs during full-body waxes, and shoos away stress and muscle pain with deep-tissue and aromatherapy massages.
Each membership level offers a distinct set of benefits, ranging from the simple tonal bliss of the basic bronze-level experience to the top-tier transformative power of lounge-chair tanning with the diamond package. Depending on the individual level and bed, guests can enjoy on-board amenities that may include the use of climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs. Certain beds even have an open-air design to help alleviate feelings of claustrophobia and burritophobia, the fear of appearing delicious.
