THE 24K GOLD FACIAL - WHAT IT IS

Meet the new facial celebs are loving

Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli is famous for scouting out the hottest new beauty treatments. Last year, she tried the odd-sounding vampire facial. This year she opted for the revolutionary new liquid gold facial. Yes, you read that right – liquid gold!

24K gold mask benefits

This expensive facial treatment has become a staple among stars such as Cameron Diaz and Nicole Kidman. What makes it so special? Besides consisting of 24K gold, it’s known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and aging benefits—and experts have known about these benefits for a long time. Leading dermatologists tell us gold has been used in skincare and healing for centuries. Even Cleopatra slept with gold on her face, and ancient Ayurvedic treatments have always used gold. Of course, this treatment doesn’t come cheap. For around $1,660 for a single treatment, you too can shine like a star.

The typical gold facial treatment kit consists of both a gold-based cream and a gold-based gel that have additional skin-improving ingredients. The gold cream usually consists of 24K gold dust mixed with saffron, honey, and sandalwood powder. This cream is typically followed by a gold-based gel turmeric pack derived from a combination of aloe vera and very thin sheets of gold foil. A specialized facial instrument is used to melt the gold foil by controlled degrees so that the gold particles can penetrate the skin’s surface. Following the removal of the gold turmeric pack, the skin is calmed with cold compresses and moisturized with a light lotion.

24 karat gold facial treatment alternatives

Obviously, not everyone can afford to be getting gold facials regularly. So what other facial treatments can turn back the clock? It all depends on your skin:

IPL FACIALS

Fairer skin types can address scarring and pigmentation challenges like sun damage using Intense pulsed light (IPL) facials. Harnessing broad-spectrum light to penetrate multiple layers of skin, IPL is a slightly more intense process that treats brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, uneven pigmentation, and redness, with little to no recovery downtime.

CLEAR + BRILLIANT

Advantageous for all skin types, Clear + Brilliant laser facials can tackle a little bit of everything at once. The fractional laser technology creates millions of microscopic holes, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue. It’s a multitasking treatment that rejuvenates the skin, improving skin tone and texture, reversing early signs of aging, shrinking pores, and reversing the appearance of sun damage & acne scars. Smooth, even, youthful results can be seen in a single treatment and improve with additional touch-ups.

FIRE + ICE

Combining laser and cryogenic technologies, Fire + Ice laser facials work on all skin types and tones, and are especially great for those with an upcoming special event. This multi-step process first heats the skin via laser light to reduce the appearance of pores, tone the skin, and stimulate collagen production, then uses cryogenically-forced air to immediately cool the skin. It’s followed by a soothing vitamin C facial mask to seal in all the benefits. In less than a week, patients can expect brighter, softer, and more youthful skin.

LED FACIALS

Sensitive skin types can benefit from light-emitting diode (LED) facials, where narrow-spectrum light is used to boost collagen for firmer, younger-looking skin. They can also help control acne flare-ups by killing harmful bacteria via blue light. LED facials are fast and effective with zero downtime, and though results appear subtle at first, they continue to improve after each successive treatment.
