North Country ENT has undergone a revitalization and is now known as North Country ENT and MedSpa.
Just as the change in name suggests, the business has evolved into more of a spa retreat feeling, according to office manager Claire Hensler.
Dr. Robert Hughes and staff are now not only ear, nose and throat specialists, but offer a full holistic treatment service spa as well.
Hensler said the MedSpa offers European waxing, which covers all areas of the body; permanent makeup, which aids individuals with visual impairments or dexterity-related conditions that may make applying makeup a challenge; laser-free tattoo removal; micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy; cosmeceuticals, which helps to create and maintain a youthful looking complexion; acne treatments, facials and peels, BioLOGIC cosmeceutical spray tan, FuturaFace light therapy, teeth whitening and Infra-Slim body contouring.
Hensler said they schedule appointments, but take walk-ins as well.
She added that some patients come in for cosmetic reasons, while some are patients with medical conditions seeking assistance or people recovering from medical procedures. Hensler said the variety of people reaching out to them is what they love about the business.
"Our clientele is very well rounded, from men and women, to prom goers to baby boomers," said Hensler.
She said they have been in operation as North Country ENT since 2006. She said the recent addition of the MedSpa has been extremely well received.
"Right now we are in the height of the season, as we expected … Things are really starting to crank up," said Hensler.
Hensler said the staff is committed to providing quality information and assistance to men and women considering cosmetic enhancement. Its staff of professionals are ready to help existing and potential clients with questions and concerns adapted to their specific needs.
The business is located at 2 Mountain Ledge Drive in Gansevoort. To meet with an aestheticism for a personal skin care appointment, request a consultation online or call North Country ENT and MedSpa at 587-6610.
