Treat Yourself Like a Queen – $300 Dior Facial with Capture Totale
OMG ladies! I just got back from the most relaxing hour I’ve ever spent since in my life!
I have had facials before, but this was a totally new experience. I walked into the very posh clinic of Sadick Dermatology on Park Avenue and 80th street which is modern and sleek. I waited only a few short minutes before I was called in. Luzinette, the master medical aesthetician, brought me back to a private room. I discussed my skin problems as I was lying back on a comfy bed-type thing and prepared for relaxation (I was so relaxed, I don’t even remember everything she did to give me my new flawless skin because I almost fell asleep!)
Apparently, Dr. Neil Sadick works with Dior and their skincare specialists to develope this signature treatment called the Dior Facial. Sadick Skincare is also the only skincare facility in the whole country to offer clients this very special treatment so I felt blessed to have one. The Dior facial is a one-of-a-kind treatment that uses a selection of Dior products to cleanse and protect the skin. This facial treatment combineskin care products with the best Western and Eastern massage techniques to refine and rejuvenate. To be fair, most clients who come in for the Dior Facial are a good deal older than I am. Luzinette uses Capture Totale, a revolutionary line from Dior Skincare that uses advanced DNA chip analysis to target 20 identified ‘youth markers’. It contains a rare plant from Madagascar along with other secret ingredients. Luzinette tweaked the products she used just for my skin which is young, oily and active. But the pampering is pretty addictive!
First, Luzinette started dabbing my face with cool water, and then proceeded to use an exfoliating mask to get rid of all the dead skin cells. She let the mask sit for a few minutes, while a mister shot out steam to open up my pores. Next came the extraction (this part hurt a little, mostly around the nostrils), in which she used a tool to extract all the gunk in my pores. She was so diligent that some of the places she extracted from I didn’t even know had pores, let alone clogged pores! Luzinette finished off my deep cleansing facial off with a soothing aloe vera mask to calm my skin and gave me a pack of samples to take home of what she wanted me to use on my skin.
The end result was a clean, unclogged, and supercharged complexion that made me feel glowy. I wish I could one of Luzinette’s special facials every month, but at $300 a pop, I think my mom will definitely put her foot down. However, the Medical Cleanse Facial at $135 is definitely one to try and Luzinette customizes each treatment she does for every client.
