Gina Mari Skincare – Beverly Hills

21 Sep

Sometimes a visit to the esthetician can feel like an hour of boot camp. You get poked and scrutinized and lectured—and sometimes it’s exactly the kick you need. Sometimes.

Visiting Gina Mari Skincare isn’t like that. It’s like going to good friend’s house, where you are welcomed and accepted. A friend who happens to have the coolest machines ever! And you never want to leave.

Sure Gina and the girls will tell you what’s up. They’ll tell you what could be beneficial to your unique complexion, and what’s not worth your investment. They’ll even pay closer attention to some melasma-looking thing that your dermatologist blew off.

WHAT TO ASK FOR

Right now — just in time for the Emmys and approaching holiday season, clients are booking Gina’s most advanced body treatment to date: the Birthday Suit.

It’s a 5-step non-invasive fully body procedure that she says will help reduce sunspots, dimpled and dehydrated skin – thanks to some cutting edge technology. Ninety minutes later, your skin is left glowing and refreshed.

I’m gonna say this one is best for the 30 and above crowd. Here’s a brief breakdown of the Birthday Suit treatment:

STEP 1: Full Body Microdermabrasion – Dry & Wet

This works on all the environmental effects of LA-living on our skin. Think: pollution, ultraviolet sun rays, airborne bacteria, et al. Microdermabrasion will exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate new cell turnover.

STEP 2: Exfoliation & Brightening

A light acid wash is applied to fully remove the dead skin cells, followed by Shea butter to leave a brightening effect. Multiple skin irritations, such as psoriasis, eczema and sunburn can be improved in this step.

STEP 3: TriPollar

Here’s where they take the party up a notch. Tripollar delivers radio frequency through 3 or more electrodes to drastically improve the skin’s surface and subcutaneous fat layers.

STEP 4: Z-Wave Pro

 Z-Wave Pro further addresses signs of aging, like stubborn fat pockets, with a sound wave technology. Radial shock waves are used to encourage a tightening in the body’s general connective tissues. Now I don’t fully understand how this works…but after watching the Emmy red carpet, I’d be down to learn.

STEP 5: LED Light Therapy (full body)

Step 5 is based on NASA research that has found certain light frequencies increase new tissue growth and stimulate collagen production. Basically, light energy improves cell energy.

Non-Invasive Treatments for Summer

2 Jul

Spring showers are history. So Cal can now reclaim her sunny disposition.

Slight editorial exaggeration aside – our tank tops don’t really hibernate until July, like the rest of the country. But the sundresses definitely don’t get their usual mileage!

Either way, Angelenos don’t have the luxury of hiding anything under bulky seasonal clothing. As such, a popular term in beauty treatments lately is “non-invasive.” Translation: minimal to zero downtime.

If we don’t have to sacrifice efficacy, the option of a quick turnaround (well, pretty much in any scenario) is king on the west coast. And it’s of special interest when beauty is concerned.

Tucked away in a wellness lounge on La Cienega called réVélation, Leslie Diaz has been treating celebrities and pro athletes with a breakthrough technology called Percussive massage. Leslie is wonderfully personable, and very conscientious about approaching each treatment with a specific goal.

The non-invasive treatment has proven successful for multiple grievances, such as acute and chronic pain, weight-loss, cellulite-reduction, speeding up post-op recovery time, sleep issues, sciatica, and migraine headaches.
