Teamwork, innovation, skill and individualized care have helped make The Greenwich Medical Skincare and Laser Spa a leader in its field. Recently, Marria Pooya, the sleek spa’s managing partner, shared some of the most-often asked questions with us:
WHAT MAKES YOUR PRACTICE DISTINCTIVE?
“We focus primarily on cosmetic dermatology and building a long-term relationship with our patients, which makes sense since proper skin care demands a lifetime of commitment. …We are in the top 3 percent nationwide in Botox and Juvederm injections, as well as the top 3 percent nationwide in Ultherapy skin tightening treatment. We have performed and are nationally recognized for performing the most Coolsculpting treatments in Connecticut and have performed thousands of successful procedures and treatments.
“Our customer service is second to none. This includes our leading practitioners who have vast experience and knowledge, and focus on a comprehensive and holistic approach to skin rejuvenation. We offer a very broad portfolio of treatment options and detailed after-care programs in an office atmosphere that soothes the senses and provides the optimal setting for treatment and comfort.”
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO PATIENT TREATMENT?
“We evaluate each patient individually since everyone has a different goal, physical condition, and ideal. Thus accordingly each patient requires a customized approach. Most of our patients want natural-looking results that subtly make them look better. We live by the credo that ‘less is more’ to achieve optimal and natural results. For most concerns, we find that a combination of lasers, fillers, aesthetician services and products best achieve the optimal outcome. The outcome is also dependent on the proper after-care, so we spend the necessary time to explain and instruct our patients to ensure a long-term optimal outcome.”
WHAT PROCEDURES ARE YOUR PATIENTS MOST INTERESTED IN RIGHT NOW?
“Botox and Coolsculpting are the top two procedures that our patients request. Botox can be done quickly and conveniently without downtime while providing excellent natural appearing results, replacing plastic surgery as the primary treatment option for many patients. We have been performing Botox treatments for more than 10 years and are one of the leading providers in the country. Coolsculpting has revolutionized the body-contouring industry. It’s the state-of-the-art nonsurgical body-sculpting treatment that gives permanent results.”
DO YOU HAVE ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THAT ARE UNIQUE TO YOU/YOUR PRACTICE?
“We have been utilizing a unique treatment that helps repair lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, enlarged pores and acne scaring called The Eraser. The basic procedure has been used safely and effectively for more than 20 years. However, we have found that by applying it in a two-step process combining micro-needling with platelet-rich Plasma treatments it achieves even more impressive results. The Eraser can give the patient smoother, healthier-looking skin by promoting active collagen growth. There’s no downtime and patients generally see improvement in their skin after their first treatment.”
WHAT NEW TRENDS ARE YOU NOTICING IN YOUR FIELD?
“There has been a very large influx of nonsurgical devices and treatments, which have been recently introduced. We are especially excited about Kybella, the new FDA-approved injectable drug that helps reduce the pocket of fat under the submental (chin) area.”
DOES YOUR PRACTICE HAVE A MOTTO THAT SUMS UP WHAT YOU DO?
“Our tagline is, ‘There’s a younger you inside. Let us help bring it out.’”
