There’s a certain plumpness and glow to the skin of someone who gets regular facials. It’s the difference between looking OK and really great—and besides, it’s nice to have someone sort out what your skin needs without your having to do oodles of research. Not only that, but there are all kinds of new tech that promise to change your skin, from gold-infused face masks to LED light treatments to stone wands that massage the toxins out of your face. Here, the best facials in L.A. for when your skin needs a pick-me-up.
Acupuncture + Oxygen at The Things We Do
This salmon-pink and glass brick–decorated salon in the Row DTLA shopping complex has a split personality: It offers old-world techniques (facial cupping and acupuncture) as well as the latest high-tech treatments (cryofacial pore tightening, injectables like Juvederm and Botox). And owner Jennifer Lee’s product line sells out fast, including a skin-stamping tool that brings collagen-inducing microneedling to the home user. All this plus a CBD gummy offered at the start of a facial—what could be more relaxing?
