Need a combo of retail and facial therapy? Enter Skin Laundry, which has officially opened its fifth Los Angeles location inside Nordstrom at The Grove. The fast facial studio's dedicated dermatologists and skin therapists are now prepared to fulfill your skincare requests — right in department store's brand-new Beauty Haven.
Neighboring non-toxic nail salon Base Coat and soon-to-come Anastasia Brow Bar, the 200-square-foot space features Skin Laundry's revolutionizing treatments, including its Laser + Light facial ($75). The 15-minute process produces clearer, brighter and tighter skin by targeting inflammation and bacteria from the pores. For skin rejuvenation and acne removal, another offering is the Carbon Peel Facial ($150), which combines the Light + Laser facial with a carbon lotion, providing a deep clean and gentle peel. Last on the menu is the Ultra Fractional Facial ($250), a facial that targets fine lines and wrinkles, thus creating younger-looking skin.
Haven't tried Skin Laundry's luxe pampering seshes yet? It works like this: As customer's safety is the main concern, the studio's certified skincare professionals will double check with you first confirm if there's any legal reason you can't try a treatment. (Pregnancy, active infections, history of skin cancer, certain antibiotics, Botox/fillers within the past five days, vitiligo, and any recent non-Skin Laundry facials or spray tans are just a few things that might delay your facial.)
Now we know what you're thinking about lasers: Ouch. It's worth noting that the procedure is almost painless. Creating a noticeable "pop rock" sensation on the face, Skin Laundry's pros are aware of the pace that they need to take to make the experience comfortable for you. The YAG laser vaporizes all the impurities from the pores usually within 2.5 mm (depending on how the customer's skin can handle it). After finishing the heating, customers can also request a hydro boost to cool down the face. Once the cooling gel is applied and the pulse light is finished, guest receive a toner and aloe vera with SPF 35 to soothe the skin.
