Sometimes we all need to save a little face in life. The best way possible, in our opinion, is with an extremely haute facial. Here are five of our new favorites in Los Angeles.
THE BIO-ULTIMATE LIFTING FACIAL at THE PENINSULA BEVERLY HILLS SPA
If you want a facial that’s going to give you a lift, tone and overall glow, the Bio-Ultimate Lifting Facial at the Peninsula Beverly Hills is your jam. Think a face-lift, but with way less downtime. This is less a facial and more a beauty breakthrough thanks to TAMA micro-current technology, a holistic method that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to ensure a luminous, lifted complexion. Low levels of electrical current trigger the body’s natural cellular repair mechanism and re-balance the magnetic energy on the face. The process diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by toning and rejuvenating the facial muscles. So what does it entail? First, expect the routine cleansing followed by an AHA peel. You’ll then get a little lifting on your lip, cheek, neck and eye areas using the interactive micro-current system. The treatment concludes with a luxurious face mask finished with a jade roller massage.

CRYOSTEM CELL THERAPY at SPA SOPHIA
Spa Sophia on Abbot Kinney is small but mighty, and its innovative CryoStem Cell Therapy treatment proves it. Our super-knowledgeable therapist prepped our skin with a professional grade exfoliator before applying the CryoStem Cell Serum. Working from basic cell-to-cell communication, a corrective process is triggered to revitalize and influence new cell structures. Sophia’s promise that our skin wouldn’t just look younger, it would be younger is valid: this treatment definitely rejuvenates, corrects and protects. Don’t believe us? The treatment is based on Nobel Prize winning research and is clinically proven to increase stem cell growth by 71%.

YOUTH BUILDING FACIAL FEATURING IP5 TECHNOLOGY AT MURAD
Dr. Howard Murad is a skin guru, so when he says he can make you more youthful, you listen. His comprehensive, anti-aging youth-building facial featuring IP5 is the ideal treatment to combat the aging process. Wrinkles, loss of elasticity and pigmentation are minimized with Murad’s Immuno-Skin Complex, which re-programs the skin for youthfulness, while five high performance exfoliators, hydrators and brighteners resurface and rehydrate your skin. This age-defying facial includes Murad’s Youth Building Acupressure Massage to firm, lift and tighten, an instant eye-lift to hydrate and firm the eye tissue and a cooling mask to soothe, hydrate and minimize redness. You’ll leave the spa feeling at least five years younger. Really, there’s no better way to feel relaxed!

LIFESTAGE ANTI-AGING FACIAL at SPA MONTAGE
Indulge at the massive, sun-dappled Spa Montage at the Montage Beverly Hills and combat the aging process as well with the Lifestage Anti-Aging Facial. Thanks to NET (Natural Encapsulation Technology), a unique, concentrated, time-released serum penetrates into your dermis directly. Your fine lines and wrinkles will be considerably lessened as a result; the facial also reduces pigmentation and stimulates your skin’s elasticity. Sixty minutes is fantastic, but the 90-minute treatment also relaxes you even further thanks to a scalp and shoulder massage. Bliss.

DIAMOND YOUTH FACIAL at THE FOUR SEASONS LOS ANGELES AT BEVERLY HILLS
You’ll love the way you look so much that you won’t be able to stop staring in the mirror after indulging in the Diamond Youth Facial at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. This incredible, innovative facial uses the SilkPeel Dermalinfusion with a patented diamond-tip vacuum technology to lift and exfoliate dry, dull layers of skin while simultaneously infusing a customized serum directly into the epidermis to plump up fine lines and minimize pigmentation and clarify pore congestion. Following the peel, a mask is applied to firm and tone, finishing the facial with Innovative Skincare’s new Youth Serum (it’s like the little black dress of serums, we swear!) to have your skin glowing with a more youthful complexion.
