Concentrated Effort

The Peninsula Spa New York recently debuted the MBR Age Defying Customized Facial.

Wanting to give spa-goers undergoing aesthetic surgical procedures more favorable results and less downtime, The Peninsula Spa New York recently debuted the MBR Age Defying Customized Facial ($360, 60 minutes; $500, 90 minutes), which incorporates products from MBR (, short for  Medical Beauty Research, a German skincare brand based on intensive research by leading dermatologists and aesthetic physicians. The facial relies on patented technology that allows MBR to extract higher concentrations of medical-grade active ingredients that treat down to the dermal level of the skin. “We were looking to target customers who are serious about pre- and post-skincare to complement their surgical alterations and esthetic medical procedures,” says spa director Enid Fernandez. “MBR is something we are recommending for guests who are interested in using medical-grade ingredients to enhance the life of their esthetic alterations while still giving back to the true nature of the skin through the dermal layer. We’ve recognized the need for this type of enhanced skincare approach to accompany our current client offerings.” Non-surgical spa-goers also benefit from a significant reduction of visible wrinkles, sun damage, and sagging skin, providing a more youthful and radiant complexion.

MBR was initially developed by a combination of dermatologists, plastic surgeons and skincare specialists to accompany aesthetic procedures and post-operative care and enhance their effect. At the frontier of medicine, MBR starts where normal skin care reaches its limits. MBR creates luxury skincare products with revolutionary ingredient blends, in the most concentrated formulations, allowing the ingredient systems to synergistically enhance each other and stimulate all epidermal and dermal cell functions. MBR Medical beauty research provides a “Made in Germany” quality throughout the entire production process, manufacturing every product in small and exclusive batches and utilizes the most powerful, pure, and effective ingredients to revolutionize the market, absolutely free of mineral oil, parabens, PEG, phthalates and artificial fragrances. Thus ensuring optimal skin compatibility and avoiding allergic reactions.
