Treatment of the Month: Face Haus
I have to confess, I was slightly skeptical when I first read about Face Haus concept of open plan, hair salon like facials at a lower price. I am usually extremely loyal to my facialist and, on the rare times that I tried other facials – mostly while at a hotel somewhere far away trying to recover from jet lag – my skin immediately let me know that it wasn't a great idea to experiment with these treatments. That said I bravely went ahead and made an appointment. After all, even though I value my religiously scheduled facials every three months as recommended by my facial guru, a pick me up here, and there is always tempting.
With the thought process that I had given in to quick mani and pedis, got briefly addicted to Drybar and loved Class Pass, I recognized that perhaps I am not as loyal as I thought I was. Of course, I'm not abandoning my long time faves but, after a stressful week, a long flight or one of those days where you somehow find an unexpected free moment to pamper yourself, the idea of popping in for an Oxygen Facial is lovely – even more if it doesn't break the bank.
The menu at Face Haus is streamlined yet complete, and the add-on options allow for countless combinations depending on your needs. It is perfect for my busy schedule and will revive my tired complexion for Friday night's cocktails.
Although the space is open, hair salon like, you still feel like you have your own privacy somehow. I was surprisingly relaxed and in my own world during the whole treatment. My fear melted away immediately after my treatment started and I became aware that all products used are high quality and trustworthy (Lancer Rx Skincare and Eminence among others), the estheticians are highly trained, and the treatments were created by Dr. Lancer himself. Dr. Lancer is known for treating the likes of Beyonce, J-Lo, Michelle Williams and the Kardashians in Beverly Hills – I took a deep breath, I am in good hands I thought and closed my eyes.
The "World of Difference" was chosen as a first-time experience, and I couldn't be happier with the results. My skin felt dewy and bright, and the results even improved as the next three days went on… hello, long weekend glow! A combination of deep cleansing, smoothing peel, NASA level LED lights, pure Vitamin C, and rich algae mask turned my skin much brighter and firmer.
After this first full intro, I feel that I can pop in here and there for a "United We Smooth" which focuses in a micro-dermabrasion for immediate radiance or a "Haus Special," their signature facial and perhaps try one of the boosts which have super fun names: lip laugh, love anyone? Or maybe an eye rise?
