img_09661-300x200Next time you’re in New York, pay a visit to Joanna Vargas and give your face a well-deserved workout. A skin trainer for many celebrities and supermodels (Zac Posen and Bijou Phillips among others swear by her!), this chica combines the latest technological advancements with organic products that include antioxidant-spiked serums and a stream of pure oxygen that feels divinamente heavenly on the skin.

The Joanna Vargas Salon’s menu includes your typical treatments such as oxygen purification treatments, LED light therapies, full body microdermabrasion and sunless tanning. But what makes Vargas’ salon ultra special is her innovative, signature treatment called the Triple Crown Facial ($250 or $325 with Vargas for 60 minutes), which gives your face a total workout. This one-hour treatment uses microcurrent technology, which is safe and non-invasive. It is combined with organic products to make your skin look healthy, radiant and youthful without any pain at all (no extractions!).

Vargas starts the Triple Crown Facial with a deep exfoliation, using diamond fragments to prep the skin and then uses a microcurrent device to drain excess puffiness and tighten muscles on your face. The treatment concludes with a serum application made up of green tea, vitamins and aloe as well as an application of 98 percent pure oxygen. After she was done, all I could do was stare at myself in the mirror in amazement at what a little electrical current and organic products can do to the face.

To maintain the benefits of the Triple Crown Facial, Vargas recommends doing it once a month if you’re in your 20’s-30’s or twice a month if you’re older. She also recommends maintaining an SPF regimen year-round to protect the skin during the day and a scrub once or twice a week to keep the face looking radiant.

The Joanna Vargas Salon is easily accessible because of its proximity to Grand Central Station, Time Square and Bryant Park. Located at 501 Fifth Avenue, it is open Monday, 9-5, Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat, 9-6 and Thursday 9-8. To make an appointment call 212 949 2350.
