For spring 2019, Spa Week is taking on tech.

From April 15-21, 2019, spas around the country will be shining a light on digital damage via $50 treatments aimed at reducing the impact of blue light on skin and the sleep cycle.

Blue light—be it from the sun or a smart phone—causes premature aging, increased inflammation and sagging, among other adverse side effects.

Among the treatments offered in New York City:

  • BeautyFix Townhouse’s microneedling facial, utilizing a MicroPen device
  • Skin Spa’s OxyTrio facial, including a “skin cocktail” with oxygen, superoxide dismutase and a blend of acids
  • VMV Hypoallergenics’ Re-Everything peel
  • Faina European Day Spa’s lavender salt scrub and full body massage
