Spring’s temperamental game of red light, green light has left you blue (and broken out and blotchy) in the face.
Shade shift with Tracie Martyn’s new Purple Ray facial.
Martyn, whose clients include Oscar winners, models, and other hotshots with million-dollar mugs, designed the treatment for people who still break out but need a bit of antiaging magic.
Begin with a diamond tip microdermabrasion, followed by a gentle cleanse and extractions and Martyn’s zappy Resculpting process. The remainder of the facial takes place beneath a combination of red and blue LED lights that clears up blemishes and promotes skin cell regeneration. Sessions end with a hydrating mask, blast of cold oxygen, and application of organic firming cream.
Beyond instant cheekbones, fewer fine lines, and smaller pores, our skin is still healthy and blemish free two weeks out — despite wearing a plastic mask (Sleep No More) and exposure to the elements (ski trip).
Color us impressed.
