There are average skincare treatments and, then, there are ULTRA facials. Just ask The Four Seasons Beverly Hills Spa: For awards season, they’ve launched new signature services like the jam-packed Regenerating Facial, which combines cutting-edge anti-aging sound wave treatments administered via a special aesthetic ULTRA Machine with star products from Kerstin Florian’s Correcting line… (The experience after the jump.)
First, after a face steam and hand massage atop a heated table, experience a sonic microderm abrasion sans, well, the abrasion. Instead, a smooth wand drags along the surface of Kerstin Florian peel-slathered skin for exfoliation minus irritated redness.
Necessary impurities properly extracted, an Anti-Gravity Lift—during which charged wands kneed the skin—reminds muscles to stand tall.
Then, after a face massage with cooled globes, LED lights (antibacterial blue for acne; red for plumping) are flashed across the skin’s surface before a Kerstin Florian serum (like C Plus Infusion) is applied using a charged wand for 4000-times the usual penetration.
The treatment culminates in a scalp massage, cucumber water and the spa’s signature chocolate, all of which is ULTRA good.
