So, we might have overdone it just a tad this holiday season, and now our faces (and livers) are paying the price. Lackluster, tired, dull, meh — whatever you call it, our skin is missing its usual joie de vivre. Usually when this kind of thing happens we turn to our trusty arsenal of skin care saviors, but after the epic partying we've been participating in these past few weeks, the usual suspects aren't going to cut it.
Which is why we were thrilled to hear that Chanel has teamed up with superstar derm Dr. Amy Wechsler to offer professional, in-office treatments combining high-tech skin procedures with Chanel's most popular complexion perfectors. This marks the first time the luxury brand has partnered with a dermatologist to offer professional services. Wechsler will offer a revolving menu of treatments that highlights the brand's portfolio of skin enhancers.
The first treatment combines ultra-hydrating Hydra Beauty Serum with diamond microdermabrasion (aka exfoliation that uses a diamond-tip head rather than sandblasting your face with loose crystals) to help boost skin's radiance and clarity. According to the brand, combining the treatment with the product helps to boost the efficacy of the product, and is a great option for addressing fine lines, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage — not to mention reviving a holiday zombified visage. The treatment costs $275 and patients leave with a full-size bottle of Hydra Beauty Serum to take with them and continue the benefits at home. So now all we have to figure out is how to detox our livers (ugh), and get rid of those excess pounds that mysteriously cropped up around our mid-sections (double ugh). Chanel, any suggestions?
