It's All About Face

Anyone who's ever heard anything about best-selling author and celebrity dermatologist Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone knows that he has based his skincare philosophy on a three-pronged approach, including an anti-inflammatory diet, supplements, and topical antioxidants. But if you're not an adherent and have no time for the regime, at least drop by the newish, posh salon and treatment center (not his office) and avail yourself of the miracle Electro-Stim Lifting Facial -- because you might just find it delivers the same result! We've had many a facial in our lifetime and have to say that this facial, at least as performed by master esthetician Estela Gilboe, is an hour-plus of sheer heaven, and the results are, well, utter magic.

This is not your mother's facial, that's for sure. There's a cutting-edge machine involved that delivers some type of electro-stimulation technology that promises rejuvenation -- the non-invasive "facelift," if you will. The literature says it stimulates facial muscles, which in turn results in greater facial contour -- and a more youthful look, which the staff says can actually be measured by complexion analysis using VISIA technology. We don't know about all this, but what we do know is that Estela works miracles and that we saw lots of dead skin cells come sloughing off our face and we saw a more youthful visage a few hours later.

We also have to say that the time we spent with Estela was like visiting with an old friend. She is one of the most seasoned estheticians in the city...with an impressive resume and credentials. It's no wonder Dr. Perricone snapped her up from the Louis Licari Salon. Louis' loss was Nick's gain -- and ours. We cannot wait to go back to test drive the oxygen facial. The N. V. Perricone, M.
