I like the glowing, plump complexion I get after a facial, but who’s got all that time and money to spend on themselves? Now there’s a new service that’s an alternative to yesterday’s hour-plus appointment: the facial workout.
I heard all about it from friends who said it was not only faster than the traditional facial but also lifts and plumps in a similar way to dermatologist-administered Botox and fillers. Needle-free and faster–what’s not to love? Little did I know what I was really in for.
I rolled in to Skin Camp in the Beverly Grove neighborhood and was immediately set at ease by the happy pink decor and upbeat vibe. I sat down in a reclining chair in this Pinterest-perfect environment, amped to get the 30-minute Sculpt facial. My aesthetician Sonia spoke in a low, calm voice, explaining what we’d do today, something about rolling, massaging and an exfoliating mask and facial cupping.
“Wait, is that going to leave round bruises on my face like on Gwyneth Paltrow’s back?”
