The Hudson Med Spa: Bespoke Beauty

When luxury beauty standards are met with an exceptionally timeless and natural approach rooted in scientific-based evidence, you know you are in good hands. The medical landscape is saturated with an overabundance of treatment initiatives, which can burden an individual’s decision making process. The Hudson Med Spa in Englewood, NJ redefines the oftentimes intimidating space of a medical facility to make clients feel at home when seeking cutting-edge, sustainable anti-aging treatments and medical care skincare services.

Melissa and Dr. Brad Gandolfi are the ambitious pair of siblings who joined forces to build The Hudson Med Spa into a state-of-the-art medical spa. Nestled in downtown Englewood along a diversified commercial strip, it boasts a unique and alluring charm. The luxurious and boutique-like ambiance is something that the Gandolfis take great pride in. “At the end of the day, it is a doctor’s office, but it doesn’t feel like that when you’re here. It’s a really special place,” Melissa Gandolfi shares. The modern, eclectic design by Vanessa DeLeon draws inspiration from the Louisiana roots of the Gandolfis’ upbringing, both warm and charming. Every intricate element, from the high-end retail store appeal with products that delicately illuminate the walls to the refreshing, complimentary infused water, is tailored toward satisfying your experience. “We wanted to create a destination, not a doctor’s office,” says Melissa Gandolfi. 


Always wise and ambitious, Dr. Brad Gandolfi had a deepening passion for pursuing a career in medicine from a young age. His accolades speak for themselves, as well as the quality of treatment and services he provides. First earning his medical degree from LSU School of Medicine in his hometown of New Orleans, Dr. Gandolfi then ventured into New York City to become a general surgeon at Mt Sinai Beth Israel. Following the rigorous program, he furthered his studies in plastic surgery at Duke and UCLA, two of the most prestigious programs for this specialty in the nation. Now a plastic and reconstructive surgeon practicing in Manhattan and New Jersey, his thirteen years of training is evident in the care that he graciously extends to each and every client. 

Melissa Gandolfi, CEO and co-founder of The Hudson Med Spa, has always been business-oriented with a keen eye for success. After a decade-long prosperous career in strategy consulting, she was looking to take on a new project more aligned with her personal values. Melissa shared an energetic passion for skincare before joining her brother in the aesthetic space. Her entrepreneurial spirit and technical edge, when combined with Brad’s natural talent and extensive training pedigree, makes the two an unstoppable force in the aesthetic industry. Now, Melissa and Brad warmly welcome you to The Hudson Med Spa, whose name is inspired by the healing power of the water which harmoniously flows throughout The Hudson River. 

The philosophy at The Hudson Med Spa is quite simple: the beauty of balance. A minimalist, non-surgical approach toward targeting skin aging, skin laxity, uneven skin tone and texture, and dehydration is their specialty. Led by a double board-certified plastic surgeon and a seasoned team rich in expertise, The Hudson guarantees effective solutions with restorative effects. The Hudson is built on the foundations of simplicity, excellence, honesty, and scientific evidence, which translates into every patient-practitioner transaction. “For me, coming into this space not having been in aesthetic medicine in the past, I started looking at what others were offering and felt quickly overwhelmed and confused with what different services were and how they were helpful,” Melissa Gandolfi admits. The Hudson has an intentionally edited down services menu, designed to only provide scientifically proven effective treatments and build treatment plans for clients on a concern basis. At The Hudson, aesthetic treatments are a highly personalized experience. Their membership program, The Hudson Club, was designed to simplify their client’s experience by taking the guessing out of preventative maintenance. Members are set up with baseline anti-aging services and access to members only pricing on additional services to customize their treatment plan, providing them with the best of both worlds.
