I have always cared a great deal about my skin. Facials, massages, nails and haircare have been a part of my life since I was sixteen years old. From Paris to London, from Rome to New York and Los Angeles, I have frequented hundreds of places, some well-known and others less.
My regimen includes a weekly visit to the masseuse and nail salon and a monthly visit to the hair salon and the aesthetician. I have had some OK, some good and some great facials. A top facial to me is when you leave your aesthetician with clean pores, soft skin and a glow on your face.
I just met Louise Deschamps, a medical aesthetician who is located at Dr. Lancer Dermatology. On a scale of 1 to 10, she is an 11. It takes about 90 minutes; time well spent for her detailed step-by-step facial.
Here are the various steps, according to Louise:
Exfoliate and cleanse to shed unwanted dead skin, impurities and skin debris. I use Dr. Lancer's polish and cleanser.
Steam to soften and open pores.
- Extractions to clean pores, (blackheads and pimples).
- Oxygen to soothe hydrate plus reduce redness using a blend of rose and coconut blend delivering cooling hydration and antibacterial properties to the skin. I use my special blend and not a retail product.
- Massage a blend of grape seed and rose oil into the skin. This will hydrate and nourish bringing more nutrients to the skin while improving elasticity and suppleness.
- Apply enzymes to stimulate skin functions. My favorite is the Epicuren hot peel which stimulates circulation and gives a flush look to the skin. This is not a retail product.
- Mask using papaya, green tea, oat meal or minerals covered by a warm paraffin gauze dipped in rose essence and plant stem cell. The warm gauze is used as a blanket to the skin pushing all the ingredients deeper for better absorption leaving the skin sultry.
- Application of stem cell and serums. Stem cell from our gold stem cell retails for $300; a very powerful antioxidant.
- LED (light emitting diode) to stimulate and detox skin cells. These lights are used to diminish pigmentation, heal, stimulate collagen and reduce inflammation.
Et voila! You have a new visage. I felt so clean and rejuvenated.
Of course, maintaining is part of the process, so on your way out, I recommend you pick up 3 products known as The Lancer Method: The Method: Polish $75.00, The Method: Cleanse $55.00, The Method: Nourish $125.00. You won’t regret it.
My ZEN rating: 11 out of 10! (A record!)
Lancer Dermatology Clinic is located 440N Rodeo Dr Beverly Hills CA 90010
