the skinney story

Skinney Medspa first location, read about us to learn more.

Founders and identical twins, Marisa + Adriana Martino ventured on their own after several years of experience at one of NYC’s leading Medspas at the time. They opened in a doctor’s office brownstone at 112 E 61st Street with one treatment room.

 

They started with technologies such as the Alma Harmony XL SR, HR, Pixel, Thermage, Lipotron 3000 and Chemical Peels. They shared duties such as treatments, receptionist, marketing and business development.

They chose the name SKINNY as a play on words, skin New York, SKINNY. After several attempts, they were unable to trademark SKINNY and that’s when SKINNEY was born.

SKINNEY Medspa quickly became a popular go-to for anti-aging treatments and body contouring. The founders credit their technology, customer service and quality of results. Within one year they grew to 4 employees. The SKINNEY schedule was booked 3-4 weeks out and they decided they needed to expand.

SKINNEY Medspa opened their second location temporarily at 50 Bond Street as they were building their first stand-alone location 125 5th Ave, Flatiron

Hallway at Skinney Flatiron loccation in NYC.

SKINNEY Medspa opened their flagship location SKINNEY Flatiron in October 2014. The business continued to  grow in popularity. The founders expanded their technologies adding Coolscupting, Fraxel, Ultherapy and VenusFreeze.
