Los Angeles-based facialist Kate Somerville is one of the most well-known skin care experts in the business. With a client list that includes celebrities like Kate Hudson, Demi Moore and Jessica Alba, she’s become a trusted name in the world of serious skin care. Here, she Somerville reveals some of her personal secrets to getting that beautiful celebrity skin.


One of the most popular treatments at our Clinic during the summer is VASER Shape. It’s a non-invasive, non-surgical ultrasound therapy treatment that reduces fat volume in targeted areas. VASER Shape feels like a comfortable massage-like treatment and it only requires three to five sessions for noticeable results. It’s a great way to smooth the contours of the body and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.

During the summer, it’s always a good idea to get regular facials to help keep pores clear! Skin becomes congested from heat, sunscreen and humidity. Our Signature Facial is completely customized to each individual’s needs and leaves skin smooth, clear and healthy.

One of my favorite products for the summer is IllumiKate CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ PA+++. It gives skin the most beautiful glow and provides excellent coverage! If you depend on CC Creams for SPF, make sure you are applying the formula evenly all over your face, otherwise you will need to use another SPF to adequately protect your skin.
