Joanna Vargas’s NYC escape

Bryant Park, July, New York City, the tail end of a very intense season of work and travel. Emerging from the subway through the tangle of suits and pedestrian traffic, I find myself in the little oasis that is Joanna Vargas’s studio on Fifth Avenue.

The day after shooting outside in the searing Roman sun and a long eight-hour flight home my skin was incredibly thirsty.

My aesthetician was warm and very gentle, I was treated with the Super Nova Facial. The process included an Aqua Peel, using an oxygenating formula of nutrients, saline and glycolic acid. This was followed by a micro current to lift, contour and depute the face, followed up with a mask of collagen to infuse my skin with vital nutrients. Finally, a very relaxing cooling cryotherapy which increases circulation, oxygenation and lymphatic drainage seal with an oxygen facial.

I felt very pampered and ready to face the rest of the day, most definitely a return client.
