Although beauty is skin deep, charisma can only be found in hidden crevices of bone marrow. Delve into the alluring depths of attraction with today's Groupon: for $300, you get a Triad medical facial at New York Dermatology Group on Fifth Avenue (a $600 value).
Gracing the pages of prominent publications, including the New York Times and Allure, New York Dermatology Group whips skin into an aesthetically sound shape with medical and cosmetic services led by Dr. David Colbert. Crafted by Colbert's extensively trained hands, the Triad medical facial approaches skin from every unflattering angle with a trio of smoothers for the face, hands, or feet. The 40-minute service begins with a session of microdermabrasion that gently vacuums up layers of dead cells. A session of laser toning then sends 5,000 pulses across the surface area to shake out unwanted pigmentation while smoothing texture and awakening sleepy collagen. The trifecta concludes with a chemical peel, which politely lifts away rough patches to reveal a radiant complexion that’s smoother than a sweet-talking dolphin.
Set in an 11,000-square-foot landmark building in the Flatiron District, New York Dermatology Group is stuffed with modern décor, a surgery suite, and the latest skincare technology. A dedicated staff also resides and occasionally writes group poetry in the luxurious space, including board-certified dermatologists, a laser aesthetician, and a derma-massage therapist.
