SKIN MATRx is a healing skin oasis that provides stress relief, relaxation and one-of-a-kind facial treatments, including a facial that boosts radiance and stimulates lymphatic release for healthy immune function.
As a women’s health and thyroid expert, I am always looking for the next level in functional Medi Spa and Skin MATRx is now MY GO-TO.
Upon arrival, I was greeted by a lovely woman and landed in a lounge chair embedded with light therapy and soothing vibrations.
After nearly finding myself deep in doze mode after only a few minutes, I was guided into a treatment room and met Dr. Blanka Orloff, one of the co-founders of SKIN MATRx.
SKIN MATRx is a fully accredited Surgical & Aesthetics center, owned and operated by renowned husband and wife team, Dr. George Orloff and Dr. Blanka Orloff, combines modern luxury with a caring and respectful, uncompromised commitment to the highest levels of patient care.
The versatile spa and medical center offers a wide variety of services that range from surgical enhancements, skin rejuvenation for the face and body, dermal fillers, nutrition and vitamin therapy, brow artistry and custom makeup, infrared sauna, and slimming body services.
I first heard about SKIN MATRx in The Hollywood Reporter as THE A-LIST FACIAL TREATMENTS STARS SEEK OUT THE WEEK BEFORE THE OSCARS, so when Erin Kelly PR and Spa It Girl invited me for a custom facial, lymphatic treatment, and SlimFit IV Drip, I was thrilled.
My Instant SKIN-Glow Oxygen Facial felt remarkable. My facialist’s intuitive touch was incredibly soothing and exactly what my sensitive skin needed after all the sun I’ve been getting lately.
This is a healing and soothing skin treatment that offers noticeable improvement by hydrating the skin with a low molecular weight hyaluronic serum, vitamins & minerals. As the serum soaks into the skin, oxygen is applied to further increase absorption and immediately delivers relief to dry or irritated skin.
I slipped into a state of bliss and within minutes of the treatment, I felt clear and open, breathing was easier and I experienced a renewed state of mental clarity and freshness.
After the facial, I enjoyed a deeper facial treatment to stimulate lymphatic flow. It was like nothing I’ve experienced, and definitely a treatment I will return again for.
The proper functioning of our lymphatic system is widely recognized as a critical component for overall health and well-being. The lymphatic system absorbs fluid, macromolecules, microorganisms, toxins, waste products and foreign substances from the interstitial tissue.
Numerous substances (electrolytes, proteins, hormones, toxins, debris) and immuno-competent cells (lymphocytes, macrophages) pass through the regional lymph nodes, where this fluid is filtered, purified and concentrated.
The lymphatic flow can stagnate for many reasons, such as swelling, chronic inflammation, lack of physical activity, stress, fatigue, emotional shock, and age. When lymphatic circulation slows down, the regeneration of cells becomes less effective.
This condition allows toxins and proteins to accumulate around the cells, causing cellular oxygenation to decrease and tissue regeneration to diminish.
Lymphatic Drainage moves toxins out of the lymph nodes, thereby boosting the immune system and increasing blood circulation
Dr. Orloff routinely prescribes Lymphatic Drainage for surgical patients to help speed up the recovery process.
Some of the known benefits of Lymphatic Drainage:
- Helps in circulation of lymph, blood capillaries, veins, and edema
- Aids in tissue regeneration for scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fracture, or surgical-incision sites, are improved.
- Assists with detoxification and anti-aging regimens.
- Helps to relieve chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disease, bronchitis, sinusitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, arthritis, acne and eczema.
- Helps to relieve stress, depression and sleeping disorders
During my facial, I received a tailored IV Vitamin Therapy containing nutrients for cellular metabolism and immunity – the total package for my gorgeous revival.
Vitamin infusions improve energy, immune system, performance and enhance skin and hair. IV or intravenous therapy, safely delivers high levels of quality vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream bypassing absorption and getting these nutrients directly to where they are needed.
Optimizing your vitamin levels helps with performance, recovery and maintenance.
IV Therapy can also provide additional hydration to our water starved cells and tissues. This improves cellular and organ function, provides increased energy levels, and helps to improve the quality of hair, skin, and nails.
Dr. Orloff and medical nurses evaluate each patient and develop a Vitamin IV Therapy Treatment plan based on each patient’s individual needs and concerns. All IV Vitamin Therapies are administered by highly skilled doctors and nurses to ensure optimum safety and results.
In a world where finding IV Vitamin Drips is becoming easier and no longer only for post-Oscar parties, New York’s Dr. Svetlana Kogan, MD emphasizes the importance of going to a reputable doctor for IV Therapy: “It has to be only a doctor from the legal standpoint making up an IV solution with a very precise number of milligrams of substances X, Y and Z.
A mistake can cost a human life.” Miscalculating those doses, she says, can cause the patient to suffer a dizzy spell and nausea or at worst, lethal cardiac arrhythmia. For that reason, says Dr. Kogan, “People should not be using IV therapy frivolously.”
She’s a fan of it being used occasionally by those who have a medical problem (chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, malnutrition, poor GI absorption, anorexia), get sick a lot or want an immunity boost before travel.” – The Hollywood Reporter
