A total scam and pretty rude to boot (both Dr Mir and her assistant). I had a peel scheduled, was 5 minutes late - and Dr Mir used my bloomspot voucher and refused to do the peel. Literally - she stood there, hand on hips - telling me if she can be there on time so can I and then went off on how bad a day she had yesterday and how I'm upsetting her by just being there. (?????) W.e.i.r.d.
Never in my life have I been to any medical practice literally as cheap as this.
Beware - this woman is fooling around with your skin. I'd rather go somewhere where I know they care about the quality of their work rather than the color of your money.
Similar to the LESresident review below from 2011 I also had a poor experience with Mir Skin and Dr. Tabasum (desk fan and all !)
Upon arrival to the Mir Skin office it was VERY hot with no AC, the reception and general office area was untidy.
Mostly used furnitire and fixtures are all painted gold and is a work in progress (see picture). Next I became concerned with the dust and overall hygene of the treatment room.
The elegant Dr. Tabasum appears to be knowledgeable about skin care but from my vanatge point Mir Skin lacks medical equipment, etiquette and the communication skills to build a friendly and reputable practice.
MirSkin is more of a non-invasive / non-surgical cosmetic establishment, if you are looking for a full service, high quality Dermatolgist try Dr. Sapna Palep at Spring Street Dermatology and for a simple and economical Glycolic Peel try Mario Badescu, a reliable and reputable place for such treatments.
Happy Summer and dont leave home with out it (Sun Block)
Botox NYC – Dr. Mir is the cosmetic dermatologist to see for Botox! She knows how to turn back the clock. The office is quiet, super private and professional. The perfect setting for your anti-aging procedures.
The Glycolics saved my skin!!! – I have been coming to MirSkin and Dr Mir for a year now. I had very badly sun damaged skin, in addition to breakouts and acne scars.
The Glycolic's saved my skin. After several of them, my skin became smooth, and breakout free, and the scars started fading. I am SO happy with the results I have. The office is ultra private, so you can be in a room, and not have to walk out seeing who else is waiting. Or have people watching you as you leave!! I can only say, in my experience, my skin glows and looks amazing, and not just for a few weeks, its been a year now!!
I've been had – I purchased a glycolic facial for $98 on Gilt City - the original price was $250. What a great deal right?! I'm getting a 60% discount on a $250 facial!! Btw, the most expensive facial at Bliss is $280 and that's for 90 min. which I've treated myself to a few times (b/c I work my butt off ;-). So I knew I had to be in for a treat if it was originally $250 from an unknown company. I was very excited for my appointment and was looking forward to a relaxing facial.
I walked in, filled in some paperwork, then was sent to an office that looked like the wax room at the place where I get my nails done. I thought this was just the consultation room and I would be sent to a more relaxing room to put my robe on and prepare for my facial. The "doctor" came in, spoke with me briefly regarding sunscreen...the standard usual mantra. Then said she was coming right back with her stuff. She came in with 2 small bottles, asked me to lay back and hold a small desk fan on my stomach and direct it towards my face...wha?!!!....ok?
She then started the glycolic peel, (NOT FACIAL), before I knew it, she was done!! the whole thing took 7 minutes and I was given a coupon for my next peel and was asked to check out the website.
Ummm...had I known it was just a glycolic peel, I would have booked one at Mario Badescu, the most reputable place for such treatments...and it would've only cost me....$50!!!! (and that's not even on sale).
This place is such a joke....I was totally had!!!
Btw, Gilt City is not at fault...I've been using various certificates for restaurants and services and everything else has been terrific...I guess there's always one bad apple.
Poor service – I was rushed through my consultation by Dr. Mir. She came in the room and the first thing she said was, I don't have much time. She was irrritated in manner from the beginning, and acted like she didn't want to spend time with me during the consultation. She didn't explain choices or options for me very well. However, I had heard good reviews about her, and decided to make an appointment with her. When I scheduled with the secretary, it turned out that there were no openings for the next few months for the day I wanted, (odd) and then Mir came out and together she and the secretary said "We'lll call you when we have an opening." I left and had even more questions than I had before I went to the consultation, since I was rushed through it. After speaking with Mir, I became more confused about my procedure than I was before I went to see her. She doesn't take email questions or calls asked through the secretary, and her disninterested tone compells me to not make another consult with her. I wouldn' t book a preccedure with her with as many doubts and questions I have in my head. Her loss, hopefully for her she is more personable and professional with other patients.
The Most Amazing Products – First, in response to the reviewer who complained that the office is always empty: Did it ever occur to you that Dr. Mir and her wonderful asst. Beverly schedule appointments in such a way as to ensure your privacy? Who wants to go to a crowded office for Botox and such? And who wants to have to wait to get in to see your doctor when you have a scheduled appointment? I love getting in to see the doctor at the time I scheduled, and I love the privacy of not running into dozens of people.
Second, the Mir Skin products are better than ANYTHING I have ever tried, and believe me, I tried them all. The retinol with green tea takes years off after 2 days. The glycolic wash and creams are worth 4 times the price.
I also love Dr. Mir's bedside manner, she is never snobbish or rushed, and takes special care of squeamish patients such as me. She is fabulous, her services and products are incredible, and the office manager Beverly always makes me feel welcome and special.
Great Doctor! – I go monthly now for maintenance. my skin has never looked this great. I love the way my skin looksits healthy, smooth and clear! MirSkin is a beautiful and relaxing place offering many services. Dr. Mir is extremely knowledgeable, warm, and caring. She is an amazing doctor that creates an experience that leaves you feeling and looking great. This is a special place of wellness and beauty that I highly recommend.
I come in from Europe to see The best – I have been a patient for 3 years. I fly to see Dr Mir from Germany yearly. She is the best cosmetic surgeon I have ever seen. She has helped me fix a number of problems that I had with doctors from London and Germany. Dr Mir is intelligent, talented and tailors the appoitment time you have with her with personal attention toward you. Reading some of the other reviews make me feel bad for some of the people Dr Mir has to deal with. People who want a "bargain" or "deal" on with their Doctors prices should get what they pay for.
Excellent!!!!! – Finally, I have found a physician who understood the needs of my skin, without resorting to conventional, run-of-the-mill dermatologic therapies which have given my skin so much grief. At MirSkin, you will get costumized attention which is so refreshing. MirSkin is truly the next wave in skin care. Dr. Mir is seriously dedicated, no-nonsense, knowledgable and confident, and her products are like NOTHING I have EVER tried on the market. I would recommend her to anyone, and I look forward to my first treatment.
