With all of the skincare options out there, why not start using a serum that was made specifically for your skin? Enter Custom D.O.S.E. from SkinCeuticals, a new bespoke experience that results in a serum designed specifically for your skin. Tribeca MedSpa is the only place in New York City that offers the experience.
Custom D.O.S.E. from SkinCeuticals allows you to customize a serum designed specifically for you in real time, so the ingredients are extremely fresh and super effective. First, you discuss your skincare goals with a medical esthetician receive a diagnostic to assess biological and environmental differences that make your skin concerns unique to you. The Custom D.O.S.E. diagnostic assesses dullness, sun spots, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, brown patches, fine lines and wrinkles and uneven texture. After the assessment, Tribeca MedSpa will then formulate your corrective serum in-office for you to take home with you immediately following your appointment.
The technology is extremely impressive and Tribeca MedSpa is the only place in New York City that has it. We chatted to Malika Sloan, Medical Aesthetician at Tribeca MedSpa, about the experience.
What makes Custom DOSE so unique?
MALIKA SLOAN: Custom DOSE from SkinCeuticals is only available in select cities and Tribeca MedSpa is the ONLY location in NYC with a machine. There is no other device like it out there. We can customize a serum for the client down to its base. It's the future of beauty.
What can people expect during the experience?
MS: During a DOSE consultation we will go over the clients current routine, their concerns, lifestyle and what they/we feel they are missing in their routine. Their provider then comes to a decision of ingredients best suited for his/her concerns. The DOSE device also provides an option with recommendations from SC scientists based on a questionnaire the client and provider do together. We can then alter any ingredients from the conclusion of the questionnaire.
What type of results have you seen from people using a custom serum?
MS: Results from DOSE include brightening, tightening and treatment of brown spots and uneven tone/texture. When combined with an antioxidant, moisturizer and SPF recommended by their skin care professional they can expect nothing but amazing results. Our clients have been over the moon with their Custom DOSE and continue replenishing every 3 months. My favorite part is that we can change ingredients based on seasons; for example, we can simply remove retinol for 3 months of the summer and add it back in at the start of Fall.
