In the past, the only kind of technology you’d find in a facial room was a steam wand. But lately, skincare gurus are turning to techy gadgets and machines to get better results. “Technology is changing the skincare game in many ways,” says Sarah Garland, senior manager of planning at Equinox Spas. “Desired results can be achieved in a shorter period of time, and tech makes spa treatments more effective in a single session.” Click through for more of the best high-tech facials that employ the latest top-of-the-line, high-tech skincare tools.
LASER & LIGHT FACIAL AT SKIN LAUNDRY
All you need are fifteen minutes when you book a session at this popular skincare boutique (with locations in California, New York, and Hong Kong). The quick treatment features the YAG laser, which cleans the skin by vaporizing debris and other pollutants on the surface and deep within the pores. It also breaks down discoloration and stimulates collagen, allowing skin to rejuvenate at a faster rate, which also helps to smooth and tighten the skin. After the laser, an intense pulsed light is used to kill acne-causing bacteria and even out skin tone. This facial is designed to be done frequently (every week or so) as skin maintenance.
