If you know me, you’d know that I’m pretty picky about what goes on my skin. And with recent trips to Mexico and Nicaragua, and another one to Bahamas in the works—my well-traveled skin needed some serious TLC. (A good problem to have, I know)
So I headed to Joanna Vargas Salon to try out their signature Triple Crown Facial. It’s the treatment that gained her a celebrity following, and now I get why. With a combination of microdermabrasion, microcurrents, and oxygen therapies I left with the best-looking skin of my life. Here’s what went down:
Step 1: Microdermabrasion
Exfoliation to a whole new level, they slaw away dead skin so your face can soak up what’s about to happen in the next 45 minutes.
Step 2: Microcurrent—A Face Workout
It’s for this reason that I’m going to start coming back for monthly facials here. I used to do daily face yoga to tone the muscles in my face, but their little machine is a quicker and way more efficient way of tightening those muscles and producing collagen and elastin. The result? Tighter skin, higher cheekbones, contoured eye sockets, the works.
Step 3: Oxygen infused therapy
A cooling and relaxing end to the facial, the oxygen closes your pores and gives you that really healthy plump and glow.
To be frank, I don’t get facials often because I leave most thinking-meh, I could have done that at home. But not this one. Not only was my skin smooth and radiant, I actually noticed a difference in my face shape. (See photo below) Like, I literally looked prettier. I’m sold.
