Trends / Health & Wellness

This past year exploded with fresh, and sometimes bizarre, skin care treatments worthy of a double-take. Here are some new and noteworthy facials to check out, should you dare.


The Hydrafacial

This isn’t your typical soothing facial. A handheld hydradermabrasion device gently cleanses, exfoliates and infuses your skin with healing serums meant to moisturize and plump. The machine is equipped with “vortex technology” that whirls around extracting dirt from your face and then pushes nutrients back into it. It feels a bit like your face is going through a car wash, and you come out shiny and new.


The Cryo Facial

If you’re ever done a cryotherapy treatment before, imagine that, but for your face. Essentially, vaporized liquid nitrogen is used to freeze your face in order to prompt your skin to firm up and produce more collagen. Added benefits also include reducing inflammation and pore size.


The Vampire Facial

This just may be one of those crazy beauty trends we look back on 20 years from now and say “what were we thinking?!.” A Vampire Facial starts by drawing blood from your arm, separating platelet-rich plasma from the blood and then using microdermabrasion techniques on your face before spreading the PRPs across it like a moisturizer. This process promotes healthy activity in skin cells and firm skin.


The Hollywood EGF Facial

Here’s where we get really wacky. The high-end Hollywood EGF Facial, otherwise known as “the penis facial” involves a cleanse, peel, micro-needling and a serum that contains epidermal growth factor … a.k.a. stem cells harvested from the foreskin of newborn baby. You read that right! It’s even FDA approved. The cell enzymes encourage rapid cell turnover and immediate benefits like brightening, tightening and wound healing.
