Skin care is an essential component of self-care. Life can get busy, and unless there’s an issue that arises, you may not think about your skin care too often. However, the skin is the body’s largest organ and acts as a protective barrier – often the first line of defense against potential infection, environmental toxins, and harsh ultraviolet rays from the sun. By keeping your skin in good health, you’re not only taking care of your appearance, but you’re helping your skin do it’s best job, too. Having a facial treatment is one of the greatest ways to promote optimal skin health as well as enhance the look and feel of your skin.

Facial treatments should not be considered a luxury experience, but rather as a necessity. Maintaining the health and appearance of your skin provides a host of physical, mental, and social benefits that can not be forgone. When there are so many facial treatment options available, it can be overwhelming to try and find the one that will serve your skin best. Whether your facial is designed to be anti-aging, boost hydration, minimize the appearance of sun damage, blemishes, or rosacea, or provide an overall brightening effect, it should be catered to the specific needs of your skin and work for your skin type.

Consulting with an expert cosmetic dermatologist, like Dr. Green, will help you choose the best mix of products and treatments which will provide you with the best skin care designed for you.

Acne Facial Treatments

Dealing with an acne breakout can be frustrating, and it can be hard to resist the urge to pop a stubborn pimple! Popping and squeezing acne lesions, however, can lead to worsening inflammation and permanent scarring. In her NYC office, Dr. Green offers a facial treatment for acne that will diminish pesky blemishes without damaging or scarring the skin. The acne facial is a comprehensive treatment that works for a variety of different skin types to minimize the appearance of acne. It begins with a surface cleansing of the skin and a light glycolic acid treatment, exfoliating the skin and also helping to reduce the appearance of acne scars. This step is then followed by treatment with the manual extraction of any pimples. Next, a soothing and purifying mask is applied to the face. The final step in the facial is the application of oxygen, allowing for a natural moisturizing process that rejuvenates skin cells. The acne facial clears up acne, reduces blackheads, lightens any dark blemishes, and leaves the skin glowing.

This type of facial should be repeated at monthly intervals until the skin is clear, and should be thought of as an integral component of an acne care facial treatment program to prevent future breakouts. Dr. Green has great success with acne facials for patients with troubled complexions. She supplements the procedures with recommendations for an at-home regimen from MGSkinLabs, including acne-fighting ingredients such as glycolic and salicylic acids found in the Pore Minimizing Cleanser, acne spot treatment, and retexturizing pads. This combination makes for healthy, radiant skin with long-term results and a blemish-free complexion.

Facial treatments for dark spots

Dark spots and areas of hyperpigmentation may appear on the skin due to a number of reasons. Sun exposure, hormones, and genetics are just a few of the contributing factors that can lead to the development of dark spots. There are many facial treatment options available for minimizing dark spots, including two of Dr. Green’s favorites, chemical peels and HydraFacial treatments. Dr. Green has over 25 years of experience treating some of the most discerning men and women in the world, offering each a customized treatment plan to address their specific skin concerns and providing customized complete facial rejuvenation. When it comes to treating your dark spots and hyperpigmentation, Dr. Green is here to provide you with a holistic, global facial treatment approach to reveal an even-toned, radiant complexion.

A chemical peel is a facial treatment which helps to increase the rate of skin cell turnover, encouraging any dead, discolored, or hyperpigmented skin cells to be sloughed off more quickly. This in turn results in the new, healthy, even-colored skin cells coming to the surface of the skin and creating a complexion that is more even in tone and texture. Dr. Green frequently recommends the TCA chemical peel facial treatment to her patients experiencing hyperpigmentation or dark spots. By completing a series of TCA chemical peels and combining treatment with the best at-home skincare products for evening skin tone, the result is an overall diminishment of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, revealing a more even, radiant skin tone.

The HydraFacial is a three-step medical grade facial that can be customized in order to target specific skin concerns. By adding a booster serum to your treatment, you may be able to treat issues such as irregular skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and dullness. The Britenol booster can be added to the Hydrafacial in order to address dark spots and hyperpigmented skin. The Britenol booster is packed with Vitamin C and alpha arbutin, two powerful, yet gentle brightening agents that help to even out the skin tone and illuminate the complexion.

Facial treatments for rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition which can be characterized by acne flare-ups, flushing, facial redness, prominent facial blood vessels, and telangiectasias. There are several different forms of rosacea, all of which may present in varying ways. Although the symptoms of rosacea are usually quite apparent, the underlying triggers and environmental causes which cause flare ups can be complex, and expert treatment is vital when it comes to reducing the cosmetic appearance of rosacea.

If you’re frustrated by the appearance of redness, bumps, or broken blood vessels, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green is here to help. Dr. Green is a board-certified expert in cosmetic dermatology and has treated thousands of patients with acne and rosacea in her private NYC office. She is consistently voted one of the best dermatologists in New York, and will offer the best medical advice and combination of treatments for your rosacea to keep your complexion smooth, clear, bright, and beautiful.

The VBeam laser is the gold standard facial treatment for targeting redness and rosacea. The pulsed dye laser works by releasing a burst of light at a wavelength of 595 nanometers to target the red color within blood vessels. The energy is converted into heat in the skin and absorbed by the hemoglobin responsible for the red color. As a result, the VBeam laser does not interact with other parts of the skin and successfully treats redness associated with rosacea, acne scars, stretch marks, broken capillaries, and more. The dynamic cooling system provides cooling of the skin tissue, to make the pulsed dye laser entirely painless. Since there is no downtime or discomfort involved with the procedure, an appointment for the VBeam treatment can be scheduled during your lunch hour.

Many patients choose to have a HydraFacial, to help with redness, hydration, and the irritation that facial rosacea can cause. The customizable nature of the HydraFacial is what makes it great at addressing a number of different skin conditions. By adding the special Rozatrol booster to your HydraFacial, you can effectively minimize the appearance of rosacea and facial redness. Rozatrol contains Rosa Canina Extract and Lactose, which is a milk protein. These ingredients help to minimize the appearance of pores and soothe skin inflammation, respectively. Rozatrol booster can be used to detoxify skin and provide it with ample hydration, strengthening the overall skin barrier. Rozatrol also helps to diminish any visible facial redness and is very commonly used with patients who have rosacea. Consulting with board-certified, expert cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Green, is the first step in deciding which facial treatments are right for you to treat your rosacea.

Microdermabrasion

A Microdermabrasion facial treatment is a simple and effective way to keep skin feeling and looking refreshed and smooth. During a microdermabrasion treatment, a fine crystal or diamond tip is used to essentially buff and polish the skin, gently exfoliating the skin to remove dead skin cells and reveal new, healthy skin cells. Dr. Green may recommend a microdermabrasion treatment, among other rejuvenating facial treatments, in order to effectively rid the surface of the skin from dead, dry skin cells that lead to a dull complexion. The result is a glowing, radiant complexion that’s unveiled from underneath and a stimulation of collagen and elastin production in the skin. A Microdermabrasion treatment may be particularly well-suited to any individual who is following a skincare regimen that incorporates retinoid products, as well as to those who are struggling with the appearance of acne breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, or melasma. After your initial consultation with Dr. Green, she will design a uniquely tailored, customized approach to your facial treatment, depending upon your skin type and specific skincare needs.

Laser Facial Treatments

Laser skin resurfacing facial treatments, which can also be referred to as photo-rejuvenation treatments or laser peels, are non-invasive facial treatment options that can be used to target an array of skin issues. Laser facial treatments have the potential to correct skin concerns such as sun damage, age spots, superficial fine lines and deep facial wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, irregular skin texture, and hyperpigmentation. The ultimate goal of a laser skin resurfacing facial treatment is to induce new collagen production in the skin and to reveal new, healthy skin cells. Laser skin resurfacing facial treatments make it possible to reverse years of sun exposure, discoloration, and skin aging, with almost no downtime involved.

Laser skin resurfacing facial treatments fall into one of two categories: ablative or non-ablative. An ablative laser treatment works by effectively removing the top layer of the skin. The erbium laser and the carbon dioxide (CO2) laser are some examples of ablative laser technology. Ablative laser treatments typically require significantly more downtime after the treatment is complete, and more often, tend to be accompanied by some discomfort for the  patients both during and after the procedure. Non-ablative laser treatments work by heating up the underlying layers of the skin, while leaving the entire surface of the skin undamaged. Non-ablative laser facial treatments tend to offer a more comfortable patient experience and don’t require much downtime. The VBeam laser, Fraxel Dual laser, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment are all classified as non-ablative laser technologies and are used by Dr. Green in her boutique NYC office in order to treat a myriad of skin concerns. To find out if a non-ablative skin resurfacing laser facial treatment is right for you, schedule a consultation with board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Green.

VBeam Laser Treatment

The VBeam is considered the gold standard facial treatment for treating the appearance of broken capillaries, facial rosacea, acne scars, facial veins, port wine stains, spider veins, stretch marks, facial redness, and more. Manufactured by Candela, the pulsed dye Vbeam laser helps to restore skin luster and clarity while diminishing any signs of redness. The laser operates on a wavelength which only targets the skin cells holding onto any red pigment, ensuring that the surrounding skin is left untouched. The result of treatment with the Vbeam laser is a complexion which is less red, brighter, with improved and even skin tone.

The cutting-edge laser technology of the VBeam laser allows for treatment without any discomfort or downtime involved. The VBeam laser has a built-in Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that is designed to automatically cool the skin prior to emitting each laser pulse, making the procedure very comfortable for the patient. The Vbeam laser also utilizes a multi-pulse technology, eliminating the risk of bruising. There is no downtime at all associated with treatment, meaning you can resume all regular daily activities immediately upon completion of the procedure.

Results from a Vbeam laser treatment are visible between four to eight weeks after the initial procedure. Each subsequent Vbeam treatment leads to an additional improvement in the appearance of any facial redness, resulting in a brighter, even-toned, beautiful skin complexion. The majority of patients benefit most from a series of five VBeam laser treatments, scheduled one month apart, with maintenance treatments every six months.

Fraxel Laser treatments

The Fraxel Dual laser is a non-ablative, FDA-approved, skin resurfacing facial treatment that utilizes a fractional laser technology. But what does the term “fractional” actually mean? The term “fractional” refers to the fact that just a precise fraction of the skin is being targeted and treated during a treatment session. This advanced technology allows for Fraxel to be used in addressing a wide range of cosmetic skin concerns. A Fraxel laser treatment can be used to improve the overall appearance of pigmentation, dark spots, sun damage, fine lines and deeper wrinkles, stretch marks, skin texture and the appearance of enlarged pores, acne scarring, and even surgical scars. Since the Fraxel laser is non-ablative, it is able to treat and change the deeper layers of the skin while leaving the surface of the skin undamaged- meaning there’s almost no downtime involved.

The minimal amount of downtime associated with Fraxel is one of the greatest perks associated with this skin resurfacing facial treatment. Patients who are treated with the Fraxel laser can generally expect up to 48 hours of facial redness after the procedure is completed, as well as a minimal amount of swelling that typically subsides within 2-4 days of treatment. Most patients will have a gentle amount of peeling, for several days, as a result of the treatment. This common side effect is completely normal after Fraxel laser treatment and will resolve quickly following treatment with a gentle moisturizer.

Due to the extreme accuracy of the fractional laser technology, the Fraxel laser is able to treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin with a pinpoint precision. Thanks to this advanced technology and unmatched precision, providers performing this facial treatment are able to use Fraxel to exactly target any potential areas of concern on the body, stimulating new collagen formation in the treatment area. Dr. Green fondly refers to the Fraxel laser as “the magic eraser” because of the outstanding skin rejuvenation results she’s seen using Fraxel laser facial treatments in her NYC practice. Sun damage, consisting of sun spots and age spots, can be entirely removed by the Fraxel laser.

The unique benefit of the Fraxel laser is that it is actually two lasers in one singular device. The Fraxel Dual incorporates a 1927 nanometer wavelength laser that is used for superficial treatment, typically utilized for improving pigmentation of skin. There is additionally a 1550 nanometer wavelength laser which focuses on improving skin texture, treating fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars. The two wavelengths of the laser can either be used together or separately, depending upon your specific skincare needs and your overall cosmetic goals. Together, with Dr. Green, you will have the opportunity to establish a facial treatment plan that caters best to your specific needs.

Clearbrilliant BA1

Before & After: Source – Clear + Brilliant

Clear + Brilliant Laser Facial Treatment

Clear + Brilliant utilizes a fractionated laser technology, designed to create millions of tiny, microscopic wounds in the skin in order to stimulate collagen formation, resulting in new, younger, and healthier looking skin with no downtime. One of the greatest advantages of the Clear and Brilliant facial treatment is its ability to enhance the permeability of skin. Immediately upon completing the treatment with the Clear and Brilliant laser, Dr. Green applies select serums and antioxidants to the skin. This step helps to maximize the benefits of the facial treatment, since increased skin permeability means that it is more receptive to phenomenal skincare ingredients. To enhance the process of facial rejuvenation following treatment with Clear and Brilliant laser, Dr. Green loves to use her incredibly popular Vitamin C serum from her line of skincare products, MGSkinLabs, Inc. 

The Clear and Brilliant laser facial treatment is a gentle, yet effective skin resurfacing treatment that is ideal for use in all skin types. Not only does the Clear + Brilliant treatment improve the appearance of enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne scars, but it improves the overall surface of the skin. Since there is absolutely no downtime involved with the Clear and Brilliant laser laser, it can be combined with other cosmetic facial treatments, such as the Vbeam laser, during the same office visit. Dr. Green will help you determine which combination of innovative, non-invasive facial treatments will address your specific skin care needs and provide you with the best cosmetic results.

IPL Facial treatments

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a type of photo rejuvenation facial treatment that can reverse the visible skin damage that is caused by sun, pollution, and environmental stresses. Accumulated skin damage can be an inevitable part of the aging process, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating. IPL therapy uses light energy to reduce the appearance of sun damage, treat facial redness, tighten the skin, even out skin tone, and rejuvenate your skin.

IPL facial treatment is a technology that is based on using different wavelengths of light to rejuvenate the skin. Intense pulsed light is different from other laser facial treatments in that other lasers are typically focused on a single wavelength of light. IPL, however, releases many different wavelengths of light and produces a “flash” of light. Since IPL utilizes more than one wavelength of light, it is able to treat a variety of different skin conditions.

The light from the IPL is scattered and reaches down to the dermal layer of the skin. Depending on which wavelength of light is utilized, the treatment is able to target pigment cells, hair follicles, or blood vessels, which absorb the light energy from IPL, and are destroyed. During your consultation with board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Green, you will have the opportunity to discuss your specific skin concerns and learn if the IPL facial treatment is right for you.

BBL Facial Treatment/SkinTyte Laser

The SkinTyte laser is a skin tightening cosmetic procedure that utilizes advanced infrared technology to deeply heat the dermal layer of the skin. As the laser heats the soft tissues, it simultaneously protects the epidermis (top layer) of the skin with sapphire cooling contact to ensure maximum safety and comfort for the patient during the procedure. Rapid, gentle pulses of laser energy are delivered to the skin during the procedure, promoting the contraction and partial coagulation of collagen. The body’s natural healing process is induced, allowing for new collagen to form and increase the overall firmness of skin. By encouraging new collagen production in the skin, the SkinTyte laser results in a complexion that is more youthful, tighter, and smoother in appearance.

The use of the BBL facial treatment for managing any signs of aging skin offers a set of unique benefits. For those who are seeking a non-invasive skin tightening treatment to improve the overall elasticity of skin, SkinTyte laser treatment is an excellent cosmetic option. Dr. Green suggests SkinTyte treatment to her patients because it is a painless, safe, and effective treatment for all skin types and skin tones. A series of six BBL treatments, scheduled one month apart, provides the best treatment results. Since there is no downtime involved, you may resume your regular activities immediately following treatment, and look forward to enjoying your skin rejuvenation for months.

Halo Facial Treatment

The Halo Facial treatment utilizes a hybrid laser that is both ablative and non-ablative to achieve clear, smooth, youthful skin. The fact that the laser is ablative and non-ablative means that it is able to treat both the dermis and the epidermis of the skin in the same treatment area. The treatment does require some downtime and the procedure itself can take a substantial amount of time to complete. Additionally, there is some discomfort associated with the Halo Facial, both during the procedure and afterwards during recovery time. Dr. Green treats some of the most discerning men and women in the world and prefers to utilize non-ablative laser technologies for facial treatments to achieve similar results without the discomfort or downtime.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a targeted skin resurfacing treatment used to address a wide variety of skin conditions including acne, acne scars, sun damage, melasma, rosacea, lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. During this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin by Dr. Green, exfoliating the skin and removing the outer layers of accumulated dead skin. This chemical exfoliation stimulates cell turnover, encouraging young, healthy skin cells to come to the surface more quickly than they typically would on their own. The result of having a chemical peel is a complexion that is more even in tone and texture, unclogged pores, and a vibrant, healthy glow.

Dr. Green has over 25 years of experience treating her patients with chemical peels to achieve a brighter, smoother complexion. Depending on your skin type and your skincare needs, Dr. Green will select the appropriate type and strength chemical peel to provide you with the best results. Commonly used varieties of chemical peels include BHAs and AHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids and Alpha Hydroxy Acids, respectively) such as salicylic, glycolic, and lactic acids, Jessner solution, and TCAs (trichloroacetic acids).

Microneedling facial treatments

Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure that is able to reduce the appearance of atrophic acne scars, age spots, fine lines, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and melasma. This innovative treatment achieves total skin rejuvenation with almost no downtime involved, making it an excellent, non-invasive treatment option for a refreshed look and feel. Microneedling works by stimulating collagen production in the skin through the body’s natural wound healing process.

The process of microneedling is straight forward. Dr. Green utilizes a handheld microneedling device that contains a set of tiny, sterile needles to create “micro-injuries” in the skin. The device is applied to the top layer of the dermis of the skin during treatment. This technique leads to a boost in elastin and collagen production and the regeneration of new, healthier skin cells. Microneedling also creates microscopic channels in the skin, enabling skincare serums packed with powerful, gentle ingredients and growth factors to penetrate deeply and provide maximum benefits. Dr. Green often uses the Vitamin C serum from her MGSKINLABS Inc. line of products to help introduce some of the best antioxidants and increase the anti-aging effects of a microneedling treatment.

Plasma Facial Treatment

Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), AKA plasma facial treatments, is a microneedling technique that utilizes the growth factors from a patient’s own plasma. Microneedling with PRP is an enhanced version of collagen induction therapy that maximizes the body’s ability to heal and transform skin. This method of microneedling boosts the body’s natural collagen and elastin production, enriched by the unique growth factors in plasma that provide the skin with a renewed smoothness, firmness, and a healthy, glowing complexion.

PRP uses your body’s own blood cells to further enrich the layers of the skin. PRP is similar to stem cell therapy, in that both can regenerate damaged tissues; but PRP is particularly useful for rejuvenating skin surrounding acute injuries (such as the micro-injuries created by a microneedling device). During a PRP procedure, a small sample of your blood is taken and placed into a centrifuge. The centrifuge then isolates the platelets, creating the platelet-rich plasma. Microneedling PRP requires very little downtime, and patients can resume ordinary activity immediately following treatment. Most patients begin to see skin rejuvenation in as little as one treatment.

Microneedling with PRP can be used to treat a myriad of skin concerns, minimizing the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles, evening out skin tone and diminishing facial hyperpigmentation, and even improving the look of textural and pigmented acne scars. For anyone who is looking to improve the overall tone and texture of their skin and achieve a smoother, more youthful complexion, microneedling with PRP may be the solution for you.

Aquagold

Aquagold Fine Touch is an innovative microneedling technique that utilizes a set of uniquely designed, 24-karat gold needles to induce collagen production in the skin. These tiny needles, finer than a strand of human hair, bypass the epidermal layer, directly delivering revitalizing, custom-made skincare serums to the layers of the dermis. Aquagold can be used to treat the face, neck, hands and décolletage, leaving your skin glowing and more youthful in just a 15 minute treatment. Compared to some other methods of microneedling, the Aquagold fine touch is able to penetrate deeper within the layers of the dermis than previous microneedling devices, reaching a depth of 600 microns to deliver optimal results.

Aquagold allows for extremely effective delivery of skin-enhancing ingredients such as retinol, Vitamin C, anti-aging serums, growth factors, antioxidants, Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Belotero, Juvederm, or Restylane directly into the skin, with no downtime or discomfort. Upon completion of an Aquagold microneedling session, your skin will have enhanced with hydration, smoother skin texture, improved elasticity, smaller pore size, and reduced fine lines and wrinkles. These stunning results are typically visible for up to 6 months.

HydraFacials

A HydraFacial treatment is a medical-grade facial that uses essential vitamins and intensive serums to provide a deep cleansing and intense nourishment to skin. The Hydrafacial is completed with a hydradermabrasion device to deliver a three-part skin care: cleansing, exfoliating, and infusing. While facial massages may exfoliate and feel soothing, hydrafacials go a step beyond and offer true deep skin cleaning with skincare ingredients that are only available for medical providers. In this manner, HydraFacials are superior to a simple spa facial, offering medical-grade boosters to tailor your unique facial treatment to your skincare needs.

HydraFacials can also compliment other facial treatments. Since there is no downtime involved, a HydraFacial can be scheduled on the same day as other treatments such as Botox injections or the non-ablative Fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatment. In addition, a HydraFacial can include LED light therapy; red or blue light therapy can aid in the production of collagen for repair and replenishment of skin cells.

The boosters that can be added to the Hydrafacial treatment are part of what makes it customizable and able to cater to the individual needs of each patient. For issues with hyperpigmentation, the Britenol booster is ideal, as it is formulated to help target dark spots. Britenol also helps treat sunspots and sun damage. Britenol contains Alpha Arbutin and Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant and helps to even out the skin tone.

For anti-aging benefits and overall skin refinement, the Dermabuilder booster can be used to help boost collagen production in the skin. Dermabuilder contains a blend of peptides, which are fragments of protein and act as the building blocks of skin. When collagen production is boosted within the skin, it can help restore skin health and elastin, leading to the improvement of skin tone and the diminishment of the signs of aging. Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) can also help with anti-aging. Again, these proteins can help boost collagen production which in turn helps the skin look younger.

Rozatrol is a booster that contains Rosa Canina Extract and Lactose, which is a milk protein. These ingredients help to minimize the appearance of pores and soothe skin inflammation, respectively. Rozatrol booster can be used to detoxify skin and provide it with ample hydration, strengthening the overall skin barrier. Rozatrol also helps to diminish any visible facial redness and is commonly used with patients who have rosacea.

For textural concerns, ReGen GF boosts the production of collagen and elastin in the skin through a uniquely engineered peptide complex. Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide the skin with structural support. By increasing the rate of collagen synthesis in the skin, the ReGen GF booster can help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reveal a smoother, clearer, more youthful overall complexion.

Is a HydraFacial the right facial treatment for me?

The customizable nature of the HydraFacial treatment allows for a variety of restorative and nourishing benefits to be delivered within a single procedure. Unlike some other traditional facial treatment methods such as dermabrasion or microneedling, which can sometimes be tough on sensitive skin, HydraFacials gently provide the skin with a means to a more even tone and texture as well as a radiant glow. The HydraFacial can be used to treat patients of nearly all age groups, complexions, and skin types, making it a great facial treatment option for everyone!

HydraFacial treatments are perfect for anyone who is looking for a way to refresh and rejuvenate their skin. Additionally, a Hydrafacial treatment can help those who are struggling with acne, clogged pores, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, sun damage, or dry and dull skin. A HydraFacial will leave your skin radiant, clean, and smooth after just a single thirty minute treatment.

HydraFacials are also an excellent way to treat acne and clean the clogged pores and congestion that result from wearing a mask. Due to the heat and occlusion associated with wearing a mask, the skin can become congested and prone to acne breakouts. HydraFacials are the ideal way to clean and refresh your skin from the increased sweat and sebum of wearing a mask.

Oxygen Facials

In her discreet, boutique NYC office, Dr. Green offers the innovative Oxygen Facial treatment. Thanks to the revolutionary use of the pure oxygen molecule, the ECHO2Plus™ Oxygen Treatment System is uniquely suited for providing the purification, nourishment, and rejuvenation of every single skin cell. This patented facial treatment system is among the first to offer both corrective and preventative skin care.

Oxygen Facials help to improve the appearance of age spots, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. Oxygen facials can also be used to treat dry and dull skin, facial hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage, free radical damage, and damage as a result of exposure to environmental pollutants. The result is clear, smooth, beautiful skin and a more youthful complexion overall.

How does an Oxygen Facial Work?

The ECHO2Plus™ Treatment System combines vitamins C, A, and E with over 80 other minerals, enzymes, amino acids, and (most importantly) pure oxygen gas to deliver facial revitalization. ECHO is an acronym for the four steps of the oxygen facial: exfoliation, cleansing, hydration and oxygenation.

Step 1: Exfoliation

The exfoliation step of the Oxygen Facial removes the buildup of dead skin cells and debris from the surface of the skin that accumulates on a daily basis. Exfoliation is an essential part of deeply cleansing the facial skin. Exfoliating can also temporarily reduce the tri-level barrier function of skin cells, allowing for maximum nutrient absorption in later steps of the Oxygen Facial.

Step 2: Cleansing

During the cleansing stage of the Oxygen Facial, the ECHO2Plus™ Skin Cleanser is applied to skin using a careful and sterile technique. The application method utilized assures that the newly exposed, sensitive skin cells are not irritated, and that the helpful bacteria that is naturally present on the skin is preserved. This step of the Oxygen Facial provides skin with a deeper clean than a traditional cleanser can.

Step 3: Hydration

The Hydration step of the Oxygen Facial acts as a powerful moisturizer, providing a nourishing skin treatment for new surface skin cells. The ECHO2Plus™ process of “Osmotic Hydration” is the only one of its kind to use specially formulated enzymes and mineral solutions to help draw moisture to the skin surface, intensely hydrating the skin cells.

Step 4: Oxygenation

The final step of the Oxygen Facial is the oxygenation portion.  This step is uniquely and exclusively a part of the ECHO2Plus™ Skin Care Treatment System. Oxygen, in conjunction with vitamins and minerals, is propelled onto the skin to nourish and revitalize the skin cells. Oxygen is an excellent nutrient for collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are proteins in the skin which provide it with suppleness and a firm foundation. The body uses oxygen and other nutrients to increase collagen production and reinforce elastin fibers. The result is an enhanced elasticity of the skin, preventing sagging and reducing signs of aging for a more youthful, smooth appearance.

What is a spa facial?

Spa facials are performed by an esthetician, typically in a spa setting. When you have your facial in a medical office, the treatment is performed under the guidance of a board-certified dermatologist. An expert dermatologist, like Dr. Green, will evaluate your skin prior to providing your facial treatment, making necessary adjustments to the treatment that are based upon your skin type, skin tone, and skin condition. Spa facials are typically delivered in a standard way for every patient, without any skin analysis or customizations. Additionally, in a medical setting, the skincare products and technologies used for facial treatments are medical-grade and exclusive to physicians. In a spa setting, the products and technologies used are often available for purchase by the general population.

When having any type of facial treatment, it is inherently important to select a knowledgeable and experienced provider who can safely and effectively perform your treatment to give you the best cosmetic results. Dr. Michele Green has over 25 years of experience customizing facial treatment plans for each of her individual patients, utilizing medical-grade skincare products and cutting-edge technologies to deliver outstanding cosmetic results that offer long-term benefits.

Whether you are looking to combat the effects of sun damage or diminish signs of aging, the result of adding MGSKINLABs products into your daily care is a more radiant, beautiful, youthful complexion and healthy, happy skin.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant skincare ingredient, helping to replenish skin health, repair and prevent signs of sun damage, and combat the negative effects of harmful free radicals from the environment. Vitamin C helps to even out skin tone, diminishing visible facial hyperpigmentation and brightening the complexion. Vitamin C also plays a role in boosting collagen synthesis in the skin, creating a smoother, firmer skin texture and providing it with a suppleness. Dr. Green’s Vita-C serum boasts an exceptionally high concentration of vitamin C to deliver the ultimate in anti-aging benefits, helping to reveal smooth, radiant skin that is even in texture and tone.

The Essential Antioxidant Infusion is a rich blend of vitamins, nutrients, and retinol that exfoliates, renews, and replenishes the skin overnight. Dr. Green developed the Essential Antioxidant Infusion serum in order to essentially give to patients a one-step solution to anti-aging skincare. With this serum, patients are able to achieve a healthier, more youthful appearance. The Antioxidant Infusion diminishes the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles, enhances the elasticity of skin, and improves overall skin texture.

Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is naturally produced in the body. As a skincare ingredient, using hyaluronic acid is one of the most natural ways to boost skin hydration in all skin types. This ingredient helps to soften and gently hydrate the skin by locking in moisture without clogging the pores. That means that Hyaluronic acid works to reduce signs of aging and minimize breakouts while effectively treating dehydrated, dry skin. Additionally, HA has antioxidant properties that can help protect the skin against free radicals and other environmental pollutants. Using products that contain Hyaluronic acid can help skin look plumper, smoother, and more radiant. Dr. Green often recommends the Hydra Repair from her MGSKINLABs line to her patients who are looking to improve their skin health and hydration. Hydra Repair is a high concentration hyaluronic acid serum that enhances the skin’s moisture content and provides facial revitalization and a more youthful appearance.
