How often should I get a facial treatment and why?
We recommend that you come in every 2-4 weeks based on your skincare goals, skincare type, and what your esthetician recommends. Here at Silver Mirror, we are firm believers in the power of regular skin maintenance and results-driven facial treatments. Consistent upkeep is the key to improved and beautiful skin!
How are Silver Mirror facials different from facials at other destinations?
We understand that most skincare solutions are less than perfect. Spa facials, dermatology, at-home products and laser treatments can be expensive, time-consuming, confusing and frustratingly ineffective. We started Silver Mirror to address those problems.
It’s based on a simple concept: great skin takes consistent upkeep. Just like going to the gym regularly or getting weekly manicures, you have to perform ongoing maintenance in order to see results.
Our facials are fast and affordable, yet completely customized and above all, effective. In fact, our facials are not just facials. They are results-driven treatments that are focused on improving your skin.
We use exceptional products, technologies and estheticians—you simply stop in for a treatment every week or two. After one visit, you’ll glow. Over time, you’ll achieve healthy, beautiful skin that lasts.
Do you provide consultations for your skincare services?
Yes, if you contact us we can schedule you to meet with one of our expert estheticians to answer your questions and offer helpful tips and advice on the best skincare regimen for you to follow. The consultation can include outlining what services and products we can provide to help, as well as at-home routines and tips to help you with your skin in your day-to-day life. You are welcome to contact us for more details by calling 646-861-00890 or booking a facial through our online portal.
What are your seasonal skincare treatments?
Every Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter we have special treatments that are designed to help you deal with the conditions of the tricky NYC weather and the usual problems you might have with your skin as a result. Our Winter Skin Fix, for example, is designed to address dry and dehydrated skin from the cold, dry weather outside.
What types of skincare treatments or procedures do you offer?
Silver Mirror facials in NYC are tailor-made for everyone: women, men and teens. We offer a simple, curated menu of services that directly addresses common skincare concerns such as acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and dry skin. They can be customized depending on each client’s ultimate skincare goals and needs.
Each treatment includes deep cleansing combined with variations of light peels, microdermabrasion, hydradermabrasion, advanced LED therapy, microcurrent, micro-needling, specialty masks, and super-serums to provide immediate benefits as well as long-term improvement – resulting in a more beautiful, clear and healthy complexion.
Receiving routine facials is a must to help keep your skin healthy and glowing. It’s important to keep in mind that your own daily skin maintenance routine is still important, but the combination of a great facial and a great skincare routine can have impressive results.
What types of scrubs or exfoliants would you recommend?
We are strong believers in the importance of exfoliation in an effective skincare regimen. We recommend using gentler exfoliating methods (such as enzyme-based or acid-based exfoliants) over harsh facial scrubs. Scrubs harm skin by causing micro tears in the skin, which will further dry out already dehydrated skin, cause increased oil production for already oily skin, and leave skin irritated and red.
What can I do in my daily skincare routine to get address fine lines and wrinkles?
We recommend adding active serums and/or treatments to your regimen in order to turn back the clock on aging skin. One of the most important products to add to your arsenal is retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, which basically signals to your cells to renew themselves. Retinol works to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes the texture of the skin, and decreases the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Other ingredients to look out for in serums that you can add to your anti-aging regimen include peptides (which stimulate collagen in the skin) glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and vitamin C. Stop by our facial bar if you need a product recommendation!
