Electric Facials (as seen in ELLE)

For more than 15 years Danuta Mieloch, owner of Rescue Rittenhouse Spa has been using  electric in her facials.  Finally the buzz about microcurrents has reached the mainstream!  Electric currents provide painless, non-invasive results to stimulate the muscles in the face (unlike botox), and delivers immediate lifting and plumping effects.  Rescue’s estheticians are personally trained by Danuta to use the most exclusive, state of the art microcurrent machinery available.  Still skeptical?  Schedule a Biolift or Energy Lift facial and see the results for yourself!

Staff Pick: Environ

I love Environ’s C-Boost and Clarifying Lotion. They are my go to products for brightening and smoothing hyper-pigmented, rough skin. Both are non-greasy and very light in texture with virtually no aroma. C Boost contains vitamin C which stimulates collagen; it keeps the skin tight and helps to eliminate fine lines. Clarifying lotion can be used as a spot treatment as well as all over to fade dark spots due to sun exposure or hormonal activity. Together they deliver a one-two punch that Floyd Mayweather would be jealous of.

Fall Look 2011


Out of the season’s none but autumn displays such a glorious array of warm colors, and this season’s new makeup shades are bold reds, passionate plums, gold, navy blue, green, brown, and burgundy. Illuminate nature with hues and textures that jump from the earth, whether it is smoky eyes, lush lips, precious metals or deep, purple this fall there are plenty of fashion forward makeup choices.

A smokey look doesn’t have to be a frightening one. The aim is sophistication that smoulders with lightness of touch, allowing this look to work for both day and night.

With eyes being strong, keep lips simple. Choose a light neutral shade with a touch of gloss for finished yet relaxed look.


Luxurious lips take on this effect when draped with depth. Try deep wine, velvety crimson, bronzed brick, and red. Whatever the color selection, let the lips lead and the rest of the makeup follow, balance the look with a soft neutral shadow on the eyes. Choose one with shimmer to make the eye pop.

When applying dark lip color use a lip brush for preciseness and ease.

Schedule a complimentary makeup consultation, so I can help you achieve the look you want!

Allure Best Of Beauty: Brows and Facial


Over the years the most consistent complaints we estheticians hear are, “I hate these brown spots, how can I get rid of them?”, “Oh my God, I’m turning into my grandmother, I have these horrific hairs sprouting from my chin! HELP!!!!!”, “My pores are huge, how can I make them smaller?” “I don’t expect to look twenty-five, I just want to look as good as I can for my age.” For the true skin care devotee, there is a point where the jar, tube or bottle ends and more intensive treatments are required. Fortunately, we possess the latest and greatest technologies in the field of modern cosmetics to address the aforementioned dignities of fathertime……. For pigment irregularities, we perform a service called Fotofacial. This treatment employs both optical light and radio frequency to eradicate those unsightly brown spots and dilated capilllaries. This service can be performed all over the body: face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. It takes about forty-five minutes and you can expect results almost immediately with little to no downtime. Pore size, skin elasticity, texture and color are all improved by E MATRIX. This technology effectively treats mild to moderate wrinkling, hyperpigmentation, post acne scarring and firms and tones the skin. Energy is applied to the skin in a matrix and the untreated skin around the treated spots accelerate the healing process and amplifies the results. Fall is the perfect time to begin permanent hair removal with sophisticated ELOS technology at Rescue Spa. This unique and innovative technology combines both light and radio frequency to thermally damage the hair follicle. Unlike the antiquated lasers previously used for hair removal, light energy is converted to thermal energy which heats up the hair shaft and follicle. Radio frequency is then attracted to the already preheated follicle, thus intensifying the heat and ultimately destroying it. Both energies are applied in one pulse for a safer, more effective and less painful treatment.

Haute Couture Facial

With the new season approaching I’ve been daydreaming about the smell of pumpkin spice, apples, and cinnamon… brisk air, cozy nights, and carving pumpkins. A time to say goodbye summer and the UV damage it left behind. Yes, sun damage and dehydration….ahhh the ravages of summer. Skin looses vital moisture in the sun causing it to shed much slower, so there is a lot of dead skin cells left on your face which makes it look dull. Dehydration- skin looses vital moisture.. so it withers and wilts making the fine lines jump off your face.

How can Rescue Rittenhouse Spa help? Haute Couture Facial!! Jump-start your skin’s needs. Microderm, electric currents, peels, lotions, and potions! You will see significant improvement instantly. Don’t walk, run…Salvation is just a phone call away.

Turn over a new leaf with your skincare routine

September is the most beautiful month to be in Philadelphia, to take breezy walks, sit at cafes and enjoy the outdoors.  Yet at the same time our skin reacts immediately to the weather becoming cooler and drier.  Skin takes time to acclimate, so this is the best time of year to change your skincare routine.  Focus on rich creams and a little extra exfoliation to get rid of any post summer build up on your skin.  I recommend adding a professional peel to your next facial. We have a options such as Alpha Beta or TCA peels, depending on your individual needs.  Incorporating a serum into your skincare routine is also a smart choice.  Serums are potent, have small molecules, and quickly penetrate the epidermis. They also layer beautifully under moisturizer.  Pay attention to the way your skin reacts to products and only do what is necessary to achieve a healthy balance.  Remember, although it’s no longer summer you still need to apply your sunscreen daily!

Ravages of Summer Skin

Well, it’s September and by now all of you are looking in the mirror at yourself thinking “Wait… what are those spots? Why is my skin dull? It was just a couple of months ago my skin was glowing, smooth and firm.”  The sun makes us happy and provides us with Vitamin D yet unfortunately it also creates UV damage deep within the epidermis.  UV damage can manifest itself in the form of brown spots (that will darken with age, UGH!) and wrinkles.  Have no fear, bronze-goddesses, there are things you can do to prevent and even reverse this phenomenon.  Incorporate Environ products such as AVST, Vitamin C Quence, and Clarifying lotion to your daily regimen.  A great skin care regimen is most important… but what else is available?  Foto Facials!!  Hallelujah! Foto facials (AKA skin rejuvenation) can safely restore your skin.  The combined bi-polar radio frequency and light energies precisely and safely target pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots, and age spots.  In a matter of 3-5 recommended treatments and no down time Foto Facials are the best way to restore and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin.
