8 Philly Experts Reveal Must-Try Beauty Treatments

Antonia DePace | March 29, 2021 | People Style & Beauty

From CoolSculpting to lip blushing, there’s a ton of new ways to feel (and look) your best.


Verena Lasvigne-Fox, Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia Spa Treatment: Seasons of Chakra

“Having been able to travel in Asia, I learned that relaxation through energy and holistic treatments may be often so much more powerful than the physical benefits from a deep-tissue massage. We invite the guest to let go, and if they are able to let go, they will be drifted away being transported for 60 minutes into a different sphere. Some guests may have a feeling like having left for a week of vacation, as letting go allows them to deeply relax the body, mind and spirit.”

Lisa Espinoza MD, La Chelé Medical Aesthetics Treatment: Twice the Fat Freezing Charm

“At La Chelé Medical Aesthetics, we are always on the lookout for the best body sculpting devices in the medical aesthetic industry. One technology that never disappoints is CoolSculpting. It’s the gold standard in non-invasive fat reduction, especially those stubborn areas of fat where dieting and exercise haven’t given you the results you want. This is why we’ve been really excited to hear about the new release of CoolSculpting Elite and its dual applicator. The Elite device safely freezes twice the fat compared to using a single applicator, which helps treat a wider range of body areas and saves on time. It makes for a more comfortable and effective fat removal treatment perfect for anyone looking to whip that COVID bod into summer shape in no time.”

Gabrielle Bruni, George Waldron Salon

Treatment: Hydrafacial “If there’s one thing you can do, it’s adding a hydrafacial to your skincare regimen. In 30 minutes, you can cleanse, extract and hydrate—each treatment comes with a gentle peel that uses a blend of glycolic and salicylic acids to leave your skin glowing for days. And for anyone looking for fuller lips, add on a lip serum for instant plumping and smoothness.”

Sonya Savage, Sonya Savage Skincare

Treatment: Skincare “2021 is all about being the best natural version of yourself. This starts with a solid skincare routine that includes regular treatments of micro needling, chemical peels and facials as well as staying hydrated. Staying focused on that routine allows us to ditch the complicated makeup routines and let our skin take center stage for the ultimate ‘glow-up.’”

Jessica Marin, Forever Valentine Beauty

Treatment: Lip Blushing “Lip blushing is a cosmetic procedure that improves shape, color and definition of the lips. Tiny needles deposit the pigment into the lips correcting tone and even asymmetry. Lip blushing basically eliminates the need for lipstick, which means a smudge-proof, kissable pout. When the masks come off, don’t you want your lips to say ‘wow’?”

Rosa Martinez, Salon Rosa M Treatment: Scalp Detox

“Detoxifying and balancing your pH levels in hair and scalp will be all the rage this year in the beauty and hair world. There will be no more harsh treatments to fix hair problems, but more treatments and understanding what one needs to do to have an overall healthy scalp to support healthy hair.”

Dr. Ran Stark, Stark MD Plastic Surgery

Treatment: BodyTite From InMode “We have continued to see patients wanting the nonsurgical options of neurotoxins such as Botox or dermal fillers, especially since we are all still looking at ourselves more with Zoom-type calls. An exciting new treatment that is on the rise in 2021 is the option for a body contouring or skin tightening procedure like the BodyTite from InMode. With this type of procedure, I can offer my patients outstanding results with no downtime. The device allows me to target specific areas of the body with radio frequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to address stubborn fat and loose skin.”

Michelle Glynn, Body+Beauty Lab

Treatment: Microneedling Peel “While 2021 still brings concerns of Zoom faces and maskne, our new favorite and highly effective treatment is the two-in-one combo of the micro needling peel. This service will strengthen and regenerate cells, target fine lines, texture, pigmentation, pore size and stimulate collagen. One trend that will never go out of style is always reapplying sunscreen, even at home near windows on those Zoom calls!”
