• Downtown Medspa: A Self-Care Haven in Jersey City

    Written by:

    Let’s talk self-care. It is something that most of us neglect, especially when it comes to our skin. Sleeping in makeup, baking out in the sun — it’s all fun and games until we see a pimple or a wrinkle — lines are appearing in places we’ve never seen before and that suppleness we all once had is gone. Skincare is such a vital piece of taking care of ourselves and there’s nothing wrong with a little pampering every now and then to make us feel great about the skin we are in.F

    For an all-inclusive spot for every beauty need, check out Downtown Medspa. Located at 115 Christopher Columbus Drive in Jersey City, this one-stop shop is minutes away from the Grove Street Path and is a hop, skip, + a jump from Hoboken. Read on to discover all that Downtown Medspa has to offer as a self-care haven in Jersey City.  

    How Downtown Medspa Began

    Marietta, owner, and aesthetician, started Downtown Medspa with her husband, Dr. Reynolds, a surgical podiatrist with whom she shares an office with. After serving the community in another location for many years, Dr. Reynolds decided to open a new place that would include Marietta’s new venture as an aesthetician and from that, Downtown Medspa was born. {FYI—Marietta and Dr. Reynolds opened their business around the same time they were expecting triplets and had a new baby at home and fun fact— their triplets appeared on Orange is the New Black.}

    Marietta and her staff tend to both local ladies + gents. Yes, guys, you’re welcome here.

    “You wouldn’t believe how many of my clients are men! They want to look good, too,” Marietta told us. Her business grew from local moms. “The JC community is amazing and is always so supportive. Everyone helps. It truly takes a village to start a business but we are so grateful to be here.”

    Downtown Medspa offers a wide range of the most highly coveted beauty services. From skin care to elective beauty procedures {and even shares an office with her hubby, Dr. Reynolds — if you’re also in the market for a great podiatrist}, they do it all.

    The aestheticians provide services such as laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, tattoo removal, + microblading. They also specialize in microneedling, a minimally invasive way of delivering serum to the skin.

    “We love to microneedle. If you are looking to get rid of post-acne scars or other marks and hyperpigmentations, the combination of the Vivace microneedler + Pico Laser make for the perfect team.”

    If it’s lashes that you want, make an appointment with Beatrice. She is the lash queen. Check out her amazing work on IG @luxelasherie — she is a beacon of beauty.

    “Sometimes I get calls saying, Beatrice, I need you! It’s a lash emergency!” Beatrice told us. Lashes are a sure-fire way to bring out your eyes and have you saying, “I woke up like this” all the time. Plus, the wonderful nurse practitioner Christina is the spa’s go-to girl for injections. She uses Juvéderm, one of the best, most well-known products for wrinkles and lip augmentation. The natural look that Juvéderm gives clients is perfect for newbies and regulars, not to mention that it lasts much longer than most fillers.

    The HydraFacial is one of Marietta’s most popular services, similar to a microdermabrasion but with more hydration and less abrasion. The facial follows a three-step process, Clens + Peel, Extract + Hydrate, and finally, Fuse + Protect. This facial is nourishing and give your skin the hydration it needs to look its very best. You will walk out of the office with glowing skin and an extra boost of confidence. She recommends clients come once a month for these types of facials. She even shows guests what came off of their skin during the procedure.

    Marietta and her crew are also well-known for their laser hair removal procedures. Using the Alexandrite or YAG laser, unwanted hair is removed with the simple zap. Some clients need a few sessions of laser hair removal but the procedure is noninvasive and is an excellent way to get rid of unwanted hair. With summer quickly approaching, start your treatments now so you can head to the beach without worry.
