Beverly Hills, CA
I have always been nervous at the thought of facials because my skin is so sensitive and prone to breaking out. I decided to finally go for it after becoming increasingly frustrated after a few recent breakouts. After doing my research, I decided to try the SPA at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery based on all the positive Yelp reviews.
As expected, the SPA at BHPS was beautiful, comforting and clean. Sophia Phan, my esthetician, was warm and professional and made me feel at ease to discuss my skin's history. She led me into a posh treatment room that was equipped with a machine that unveils all the things you can't see in natural light. I was concerned about sunspots and this machine showed me that I have more on the side that the sun hits when I drive which makes sense since I drive frequently. It also showed dehydrated skin (especially under my eye area since this is a genetic problem), oil congestion, lingering blackheads, and fine wrinkles (nothing hard core but early signs of aging I would like to combat). She recommended a few treatment options and I decided I wanted to start with a microdermabrasion facial. Sensing I was slightly nervous, she put me at ease by explaining what she would be doing and what products she would be using as she did the treatment.
Sophia gently but firmly removed the dead skin cells from my face with a state of the art microdermabrasion machine. She removed my blackheads without irritating my skin. I was fearful that the pressure would be too intense for my delicate skin and leave my face red and irritated for days following. This did not happen. Rather, after removing my dead skin cells, Sophia proceeded to hydrate my skin and treat my sunspots with an antioxidant mask that she had customized for my skin type. The treatment was soothing and the products smelled nice.
When Sophia was done, she brought me a snack and a script that showed the products she used on my face. The products she recommended have kept my skin glowing! I write this review, one month after receiving my facial with Sophia, and my skin still looks better than it has looked in a long time. Hydrated, clean and healthy! I feel better about myself. I know it can be difficult finding someone to trust your face with. As a pleased client of Sophia Phan's, I would TRULY like to recommend her with glowing endorsements.
