“Lit-From-Within-Facial” Featured in Town & Country Weddings: Spring/Summer 2011
PHILADELPHIA: Rescue Rittenhouse Spa, Danuta Mieloch. Bio-Lift Facial, $200.
The words “glowing” and “bride” go hand in hand. But by the time the big day arrives, most women feel about as radiant as a dim bulb. While heavy exfoliation and blackhead extractions aren’t going out of style anytime soon, microcurrent treatments that use electrical currents to target facial muscles have brides signing in droves. Microcurent facials have the benefit of being completely noninvasive. Plus, the treatments have immediate (if not incredibly long-lasting) benefits. The microcurrent works by “exercising” and toning the facial muscles. It’s basically a low-level electric stimulation that helps contract the muscles all over the face to give a lifted appearance. There’s no downtime and it’s painless. The treatment works best when done in a series, with the last one performed close to D-day. If it’s a slightly older bride in her mid-thirties or forties, you could even do the last treatment the day before the wedding. It hides the effects of stress on the face. People do come out with a real twinkle in their eyes and that glow from the inside.
