Philadelphia Magazine’s Best Of Philly 2013: Facial at Rescue Spa

Philadelphia Magazine, 40th Anniversary Edition: Best of Philly 2013

FACE-SAVER:  The Rescue Rittenhouse Facial is a timeless beauty at its best.

Sometime in my mid-20s, three faint but distinct lines decided to plant themselves on my brow, stretching from temple to temple across my forehead like a fence without posts.  I sometimes stand under the harshest light in my bathroom, dabbing on a variety of products to see if – with the right combination – they might plump back out, like little troughs just waiting to be filled.  They never do.

Well, they never did, I should say.

Five years ago, on the advice of a friend, I went to Rescue Rittenhouse Spa’s Danuta Mieloch, a Polish-born aesthetician who worked in Paris and Manhattan before opening Rescue here nearly a decade ago.  Her facials are the only thing that has ever made the lines fade into near-nothingness.

I realize this sounds absurd, especially because we’re not talking about injectables or lasers or anything you’ve seen on Real Housewives.  The magic comes courtesy of a non-invasive, utterly relaxing 60 minutes filled with exfoliating, a little mircodermabrasion, and lots of moisturizing.  The result is Beyonce-level luminosity and smoothed-out skin.  One glows -no exaggeration- for weeks.

Chances are good that I’m not writing anything you haven’t read about or experienced yourself: Danuta (or Dana, as she’s known to clients) long ago became an instant Philly classic.  Friends told friends, and suddenly you had to wait 6 months to get an appointment.  But Rescue –the closest thing I’ve ever found to redemption for all those sunburns of my youth – is always worth it.
