Zac Posen, Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore and Ashley Greene all turned to Celebrity Facialist, Joanna Vargas just days before the Met Gala to whip their skin into shape. She's Hollywood's constant go-to and you bet your butt I'll be visiting her the day before my wedding. I had the pleasure of chatting with Joanna again about what thehype of her facials is all about.
Your Triple Crown Facial seems to be popular amongst your celebrity clientele. Why is this the facial to receive before a big event?
My Triple Crown Facial is an awesome treatment to get before an event and is favored by my celebrity clients before a shoot or the red carpet. I use a mild electric current to drain puffiness, tone muscle and tighten skin. There is no downtime, people love the instant effect and long term, the effects are cumulative. I usually recommend this facial once a month. For someone in their twenties, a facial once a month is always recommended, but this facial is a great treatment once a month for thirty and up. Since I designed this treatment myself, it is only available in my salon.
Can you describe the three steps and their benefits?
Step one, the diamond peel, really removes surface dirt and dead cells. I believe a great exfoliation is awesome and can transform the skin. It allows or all the products to penetrate better.
The microcurrent drains puffiness, tightens muscle and builds collagen. It's like going to the gym for your face .
Oxygen is soothing, healing and collagen building all on its own. It gives anyone an instant glow and gives the skin a much needed boost.
How did you come up with combining the elements of the facial?
I always try to combine the best technologies for my clients so they always see a difference in their skin at the end.
Since most of the results are temporary, how long do they last and how far in advance should someone get one before a big event?
The day of is ideal. If not, then the night before is what I recommend.
Do you do anything differently durning the facial when treating mens skin like Zac Posen than treating womens like Michelle Williams?
Well, we all tend have the same concerns: clear skin, small pores, and everyone wants to look well rested and fresh even when they’re working night and day!
