Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Purcell Sr Whether you re thinking about getting a medical-grade facial, injectable fillers, or perhaps a cosmetic procedure, chances are you will be going to a medical spa to do it. Capital Skin a hybrid of a medical office and a day spa operated under a physician s license and care. With treatments and products that are stronger, more involved, medical-grade and physician-strength, Capital Skin Medical Spa is primarily about dramatic visible results and secondarily about relaxing and pampering treatments. At Capital Skin, we effectively combine the two, offering medical treatments in a spa-like environment.

Clifton Park, NY |
Not only was I mislead about how much their services cost, it was a waste of our money. Had to seek treatment elsewhere for improvement.
in Clifton Park, NY |
Called for an appointment for the first time ,,, Wanted to get in same day. They scheduled me for a week out. They said they would try to get me in earlier. They called back with an appointment that day. I was so relieved. The staff was amazing. I had a 15 minute wait. Dr Purcell explained everything to me. I was so hesitant to go see anybody, I was embarrassed, but he put my mind to ease. I just wish I went in earlier.
