When it comes to skin, everyone’s a philosopher.
Some hail from the school of topical treatments. Others swallow handfuls of vitamins for a glow that starts from within. And then there are those who opt for the nip-tuck route.
For facialist Kate Somerville, the philosophy is simple: the best of everything. Hidden on Melrose Place, her picture-perfect medi-spa is a skin-care paradise, with four charming rooms decorated in soothing blues, greens, and pinks and matching down comforters to keep you toasty.
The treatments? Best in town. Everything from vein zapping to laser hair removal or a non-invasive collagen synthesis treatment to plump your kisser. For something more extensive, opt for the Titan Treatment, a lift that uses hot and cold lasers to tighten and boost sagging spots (chin, arms, stomach, neck) in just two hours. Sure, it costs $2,000, but it’s a small price to pay to get rid of that turkey-gobble neck you inherited from Granny. (Don’t believe it? Check out the before and after shots on the Web site. Not doctored — we checked.) It’s no wonder she’s made fans out of Annette Bening, Bo Derek, and Kirsten Dunst.
The real kicker is that none of the services are surgical. Everything is painless and requires zero post-treatment downtime. So you can look your best without getting near a knife.
And that’s a philosophy we can get with.
