When news broke that a nonsurgical face-lift (the Silhouette Instalift) had come to the United States, we were pretty intrigued. Especially since this news came on the heels of a Goop announcement that facial threading (where a barbed piece of thread is passed through the skin and pulled up for an instant lift) was the new trend, albeit one that scared the living daylights out of us. However, the Silhouette Instalift, while minimally invasive, still requires local anesthesia and sutures, so you can count us out of that one, too. If only we could get a quickie lift without having to actually insert anything into our faces…
Enter: the Lift Facial. Ildi Pekar, facialist to Miranda Kerr, Lindsay Ellingson, and Irina Shayk has created a customized treatment for an instant face-lift, no needles required. Pekar tells E! that the treatment is a three-step process: "First, we cleanse the skin. Then we provide a microcurrent [treatment], which helps stimulate and work out the face's muscles while providing lymphatic drainage to get rid of any excess toxins and water especially around the eye area. Next, we use radio frequency—this is great for skin tightening and fat shrinking. By minimizing the excess fat around the face, we can give you a natural contour that shows definition in your jaw and cheek areas. The final step is our Oxygen 2.0, which is an upgraded version of the famous 'oxygen facial.' We use microhyaluronic acid to penetrate your skin on a deeper level. You can instantly see an increased skin hydration level while giving you a youthful look."
After the treatment is done, Pekar applies a layer of her honey-infused moisturizer ($78) to leave the skin glowing. But before you book an appointment, know that the treatment will set you back $275 (sorry to be the bearer of bad news).
