A great facial is a life-changing thing—it allows your skin to look and feel its best for months on end. But a mediocre facial will leave you strapped for cash and feeling no better off than when you started. It's all about the technique, the products, and the personalized treatment. So we decided to give you a peek into the best facials in your hometown. This time, it's New York City.
We've done the research and hit up almost every facialist on the island to get the lowdown on what works and which treatments are worth your time. (It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.) Finally, we've come up with our five favorites.
What: Elemis Bespoke Biotec Facial
Where: Georgia Louise Atelier, 114 East 71st Street
Why: There are three signature Biotec facials at this location, each offered for personalized skin benefits. There are microcurrent pulses to target fine lines and wrinkles, massage and sculpting for firmer, more lifted skin, and ultrasonic peels for brighter, more radiant skin. Your esthetician first does a consultation to determine what your skin would benefit from and begins. No matter which facial you go with, it's super hands-on and effective… as well as incredibly pampering.
Elemis's consulting facialist, Georgia Louise, explains, "My team and I love offering the Elemis Biotec facials. They are the perfect balance of science and nature, the right amount of hands-on massage with the newly formulated professional products. A truly A-class facial experience, time and time again, for all skin types, that delivers longer lasting results than traditional hands-on facials. My clients trust my hands and I trust Elemis to help shape beautiful looking skin."
