Our very own, Marria Pooya, is featured on Women In Business!
Another speaker was Marria Pooya, managing partner of Greenwich Medical Spa. Started in 2005, the medical spa now includes locations in Westport and Greenwich, Connecticut, and Scarsdale, New York. There are 23 staff members providing treatments including CoolSculpting, Botox and fillers. “I wanted a business that helped empower women,” Pooya said. “I wanted to be the best med spa in the area by giving the best quality of care, the best customer service and to be completely honest and transparent with patients.” In addition to the medical spa locations, Greenwich Medical Spa has developed a line of skincare products, ArieedMD.
Pooya said there are three things anyone concerned with antiaging should be using. “Sunscreen is the number one antiaging product that’s out there. You should not leave home even in the winter without sunscreen. Number two is vitamin C.” She said that vitamin C helps the body deal with free radicals created by sun exposure, pollution and even stress. “Finally, a retinoid or Retin-A (a form of vitamin A), because that helps with fine lines and wrinkles. It helps build collagen as well as thicken your skin and shrink your pores.”
