Joanna Vargas Keeps Skincare in the Spotlight in 2015

March 3rd, 2015

Joanna Vargas has been at the forefront of the aesthetics industry since the founding of her luxury day spa 2004, and has continue to keep skincare in the spotlight into 2015.  With more than a decade of success and a proven track record the skincare Guru behind this venture has built a solid celebrity and professional clientele by staying abreast of the latest technologically advanced and holistic skincare methods.  Vargas’ passionate ambitions ran deep to dedicate herself to providing superior natural therapies while creating a thoughtfully edited face care line suitable for all skin types and tones.

W, the top-tier fashion magazine, has this to say about Joanna Vargas in their January 2015 issue: “New York microcurrent pioneer Joanna Vargas’s Triple Crown facials cost $400 a pop, and her regulars come in weekly. The lifted look that results lasts several days, and the idea is to “wake up” the muscles continually so they tighten-like Pilates for the face.” In the article Joanna considers her approach to achieving optimal skin, ”I do my best work when I can treat people over a period of time,” says Vargas, whose devoted following includes Julianne Moore and Naomi Watts.


Glamour Magazine’s, Petra Gugliemetti, was “giddy with excitement” to get a peek at the celebrity facialist’s skincare lineup for the Golden Globes this past January.  In recognizing Dakota Johnson’s glow at the awards courtesy of Joanna Vargas’ skill these four treatments could not be overlooked:

The Triple Crown Facial. this is the ultimate in elastin-boosting and sculpting face care.  With three supreme treatments harnessed into one youth-enhancing facial the skin becomes dramatically refined for a soft silken radiant appearance.  Microdermabrasion, microcurrent and pressurized oxygen resurface the skin, redefine the contours of the face and regulate overall dermal function for a flawless visage.

Full-body Microdermabrasion.  This is the ultimate in skin pampering: applying diamond tip wands to completely exfoliate the enter surface of the body.  The treatment creates luxuriant flawless texture for her client’s special events.

Steamed Compresses.  The warmth of coconut and ginger saturated compresses were an elegant touch for relaxing tense muscles and delivering thorough moisture following microdermabrasion.

LED Light Therapy.  scientifically proven light emitting diodes are known to expedite healing time of wounded and aging dermal tissue.  Collagen and elastin proteins get a significant boost with dramatic age-defying results by applying infrared light.  This is an essential part of advanced face care regime for a glowing .

And what of the spa’s male clients?  According to a recent New York Times article, “Are You Man Enough for A Peel?,” Joanna Vargas notes a consistent uptick in her male clientele. Peels are the preferred way to rapidly remove blemishes in a less painful way because as she’s observed “Women think it’s O.K. to suffer a bit for beauty, but men are a little more sensitive to extractions,” she said.  Along with highly concentrated fruit acids she adds “invigorating” paprika.  Ms. Vargas  says,“they [men] like the heat of the paprika.”

As 2015 has already been busy year for Joanna Vargas with much press and public recognition, appointments have booked up fast.  With that in mind it’s important to book well in advance to guarantee a timely facial.
