Been There, Tried That: A Facial With The Founder of Rescue Spa

Ahh yes, Rescue Spa. The famous spa name passed around by glamorous New Yorkers. The founder, Danuta Mieloch, is the closest thing to a skin goddess, as clients praise her ability to make their complexion radiant, hydrated, and blemish-free. Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to get a facial with the amazing Danuta, after hearing her praises for quite some time. Literally one week after my appointment, I saw an Instagram story of Danuta posing with none other than Rosie Huntington Whiteley. If it’s good enough for her, it’s most definitely good enough for me!

“I love this facial,” -Eva Chen

“I love this facial: So between being lazy and pregnant and then nursing for 9 months for each kid, I’ve basically slacked on skincare for a solid four years. I’m beginning to inch back into taking care of my skin and the Biologique Remodeling facial at Rescue Spa helped to kick start that. I never got as many compliments on my skin as I did after getting this facial… I don’t know if it was the LED lights, the electric currents, or the tons of facial massage but… the combination works. I think I’ll get this (not inexpensive, alas) facial 4 times a year.” –Eva Chen

How to Banish Dry, Scaly Winter Skin via Shoppist

We’re barely two weeks into our new normal – freezing, winter-like temps – and already we’re noticing the telltale signs of cold weather: dry, flaky, scaly skin. While lotions and moisturizers can help, sometimes you need to bring in the big guns and hie yourself to a spa and the hands of a seasoned skin pro.

We’ve sleuthed out five of Philly’s best treatments for winter’s dry skin, all of which will bring some life and moisture into even the dullest, flakiest skin. Get one now before winter really wreaks its havoc, and you’ll be dewy ’til spring. (Or at least until it snows.)

Full-Spectrum Facial, $200 // Rescue Spa, Rittenhouse
During this 90-minute tailored-to-you pampering session, your face, neck and shoulders will be massaged, de-gunked, and re-hydrated to glowing perfection. West Coast transplant Ashley Span cleans, steams and wraps your face in hot towels, before giving you an exfoliating microdermabrasion to slough away dead layers. Up next: a Biolift plumping treatment which activates collagen (think: tighter, tauter, skin), followed by an LED light therapy treatment for color correction. Then, your face is slathered in serums to send a much-needed drink deep into your skin for moisture that lasts. (It’s been three days since my full-spectrum microdermabrasion, and my skin still feels brand-new.)

What’s the deal with Biolift?

Biolift is essentially one giant upgrade to your traditional classic facial here at Rescue, and here’s why: electricity!! In the City of Brotherly Love, where our own Ben Franklin first harnessed the electric power of lightening, we here at Rescue are doing essentially the same for your face.

Sound a little intense for you? I thought so too. So I booked myself a Biolift with our very own esthetician Joanna Kula (Ben Franklin was booked for the day) to test it out – her credentials are pretty stacked, so I knew I was in good hands.

We started with a little Lait U cleanse, which for the record feels 1000 times better when a professional applies it. Joanna followed with the Valmont Face Scrub, full of tiny exfoliating granules that left my face feeling buffed clean and new, not to mention it smells like a dream. Of course, the ever-renowned P50 1970 followed. Joanna basically gave my face a bath in this toner, pressing the drenched cotton round into my skin to really deliver the product (a technique I’ve been trying to replicate). I can’t actually afford to spread that much P50 on myself every day, nor does Joanna recommend it, but for the occasional facials, the P50 party on my face felt phenomenal.

Then for the big shebang: the Biolift!!!

The electric current is delivered through two sponges that Joanna keeps in constant motion on the face. In areas that could use a little extra love, like the eyes, frown lines, jawline or the brow, she plumps the skin by using a pumping motion to really activate the muscles. That’s the sweet thing about Biolift – the electric current activates muscles in the face, penetrating the layers of the skin. Joanna explained it like this: Biolift is like going to the gym. If you work your muscles at the gym one time, you aren’t going to see lasting results. But if you go all the time, your muscles will build. And when its muscles on your face you’re beefing up, that means bye bye sagging skin, hello cheekbones!

And if you’re closer to my age and don’t quite have wrinkles that need filling or a jawline that needs tightening, fear not!! Biolift is still an amazing service for you. Not only will those few stress lines be filled for your big event – like seriously by permanent brow furrow was erased – but you will walk out of there with glowing, radiant skin. My face felt baby soft (it still does, a week later), fuller in all the right places, and finally hydrated possibly for the first time in my life. And it’s all thanks to the fact that Biolift’s electric currents send the products already on the skin even deeper into the epidermis – more so than a normal facial could. And who couldn’t benefit from that?

I cannot stress how beneficial Biolift is for younger women, as well as women with more mature skin. If you don’t believe me, take it from Joanna, who says “It is a great preventative treatment, especially for those who want to avoid plastic surgery later on. It helps to combat not only the effects of gravity on the face, but also helps stimulate collagen production, which is the reason why skin becomes saggy in the first place. Women start to lose collagen very rapidly in their 30s and it just goes downhill from there, which is why prevention is the so important early on.”

Boom.

After the Biolift treatment, she spread Oligo-Proteines Marines Serum over my skin (amazing for dark circles), followed by Vip O2 Creme (light and oxygenating), finished with Serum Fluide VIP O2 for that million dollar glow.

 

If you’ve got a big night out on the horizon, I cannot recommend this service more. It’s the perfect quick lift for any special occasion that will have people begging you for your skincare regimen. In the wise words of that guy from Men’ Warehouse, “You’re gonna like the way you look. I guarantee it.”

Younger looking skin

Over my years of experience when I ask a client what improvements they would they like to see in their skin, one of the most common answers is ” younger looking skin”.

Wouldn’t it be easy if we can easily wave a magic wand and instantly tighten your skin and smooth out your lines?

Unfortunately we do not have that power but thankfully we have access to great technology including non invasive procedures that provide great results in little to no downtime. Yes, you can even receive these treatments on your lunch break!

The Refirme is an FDA approved skin tightening laser that requires 3-4 sessions spaced at about 3-4 weeks apart.  Each treatment is about one hour long for the full face/neck area.

Refirme uses elos technology which combines bi-polar energy and light energy into one procedure which makes it an effective method in wrinkle reduction and tightening.

Does it hurt? Although “beauty is pain” this procedure is a pretty comfortable treatment.  There may be some areas of slight discomfort but overall there is no downtime.   Your skin may be left slightly pink. You can apply make up and continue on with your day.

For optimal results try the Energy Lift facial which combines the best of two tightening and firming technologies: Refirme and Rescue’s signature Biolift treatment which involves  a customized blend of serums and noninvasive electrical currents used to plump and lift the skin also leaving you with a post facial glow and of course younger looking skin.
