Early Spring Time at Dorit Baxter

The early spring as winter loses its grip on the weather and in our moods to make way for the season of renewal, the homepage of our Midtown Spa’s Web Site indicates the enthusiasm which one of America’s first day spas swings into spring.

Extraction Facial

Marie Claire raves about a specialized Dorit Baxter facial which focuses on a deep cleansing. Our Deep Cleansing Facial with Herbal Pack prepares your skin for spring with serious extractions for a seasonal glow. The herbal pack constitutes a softening agent which readies the skin for deep extractions performed by our expert skin care specialists. Discomfort is minimized all the way to a completely cleansed face.

In subsequent blog posts, we will describe the four Spring Specials in detail. For now, we will simply say that these packages of spa treatments are designed to beautify the body and enhance an overall feeling of wellness in tune with the season of budding and blooming, of warmer weather and happier feelings.

Couples Massage Lesson

An all-year-round popular treatment, our spa’s Couples Massage Lesson resonates with loving duos for varied reasons in different seasons. In the season of renewal, romantic pairs see in nature’s exuberance a reflection of their feelings for each other. At Dorit Baxter those feelings find expression in a session of mutual massage lessons.

Swing into spring at Dorit Baxter Day Spa in the heart of midtown Manhattan where we are waiting to usher you into the sweet season of renewal.

Deep Cleansing Facial

Marie Claire Magazine Praises Dorit Baxter

Deep-Cleansing Facial with Herbal Pack

facialOur spa was gratified by a recent feature in Marie Claire by beauty editor Lauren Valenti who writes “Since extractions are a decidedly delicate matter, I did my homework and ended up in the most capable of hands: Yaffa Rabe, a master esthetician and skin specialist at Dorit Baxter Day Spa, who firmly believes that extractions are the secret to a glowing complexion, but only if they’re performed by a professional.”

Skin Softener

The secret to a successful deep-cleansing facial, one which accomplishes the maximum number of extractions with minimal discomfort, is to optimally soften the skin prior to the extraction. In all Dorit Baxter Facials, except for the Deep-Cleanser, steaming is the primary means of softening the skin.

Herbal Elixer

In our Deep-Cleansing Facial, the Dorit Baxter Herbal Pack is the primary softening agent. Valenti describes our spa’s herbal pack as an “elixer made of chamomile, lavender, and flax seeds, which work together to calm the skin, withdraw oil, and remove dead layers of skin without exfoliation or harsh ingredients.”

Heated Fragrance

These specialized herbs are melded and melted in our kitchen and placed in a gauze pouch the size of a large teabag. The freshly heated and fragrant pack covers the face and its softening effects prepare the skin for extraction.

Sealing Steamer

In our deep-cleansing facial, the steaming process functions to seal into the skin the softening effects of the herbal pack, making the skin optimally receptive to the extraction process, best performed by the gloved fingers of one of our highly skilled estheticians using soft tissues instead of a metal tool.

Spring Cleaning

We look forward to welcoming you to our spa in midtown Manhattan this spring for the Deep Cleansing Facial so appreciated by Marie Claire.

It’s Always Couples’ Time at Dorit Baxter

Because Valentine’s Day is in the exact middle of February, the whole month is often promoted as Couples’ Month. At Dorit Baxter, after meeting the aesthetics and wellness needs of discerning New Yorkers and visitors to our city for the past three-and-a-half decades, we have become accustomed to seeing couples coming to the spa together in ever-increasing numbers. Here’s why:

massagelessonShare the Learning

Romantic duos are drawn to our Massage Lesson for Couples because learning together how to have a healing touch on the person you most care about can be a meaningful bonding experience for both of you.

Share the Healing

When two people who love each other have a Couples Massage they are happily sharing the healing experience of being given a massage by an expert therapist. Solo, massage is a restorative experience; sharing it with a life’s partner enhances the healing.

Share the Package

Couples who share our spa’s Couple’s Package enjoy our most popular treatments, including the Couple’s Massage described above.

Share the Experience

Some of our clients who have brought their husbands in for one of the treatments described above get into the habit of coming into the spa as a couple for entirely separate treatments simply because sharing the spa-going experience adds another dimension to the activities in which they include each other. Spa-going is about feeling better and looking better, so why not come into the spa together, and after the treatments enjoy some dining and wining with each other?

We are waiting to welcome couples at our spa conveniently situated in Midtown Manhattan and long known for the coziness of its atmosphere, excellence of its treatments, and affordability of its prices,
