Alexandra Wagner is going to examine every last pore on your face like it’s done something wrong. Just know results await on the other side of this aesthetic inquisition.
Working out of her airy new clinic in Venice, Wagner customizes facials to include the deep cleansing, microdermabrasion, enzyme peels, and oxygen or LED therapies you may need. For super-thirsty skin, she recommends an ultrasonic/microcurrent infusion that encourages skin to really soak it in.
Warning: There are extractions. Wagner belongs to the school of no pain, no gain, but the aforementioned pores come out squeaky clean. They’re followed, thankfully, by a soothing neck massage done to a cheery iPod playlist.
She’ll also take care of stray chin hairs, wayward brows, and unwanted fuzz — any reason to get up in your face.
