While I was in LA earlier last month, I had the pleasure of having a facial at the Kate Somerville Clinic. The team invited me to experience the Signature Facial, which is one of their most popular treatments. In addition to traditional facials, the clinic is a fully functioning medical spa that also does procedures such as Botox and various injectables. It’s basically a one-stop shop for everything you could need for the face and/or body. And the fact that the clinic looks like the most glamorous boudoir you have ever stepped foot into, only adds to the experience! (THAT FIREPLACE!!)
My appointment was with Kelly, who was actually trained by Kate Somerville herself so I felt incredibly lucky to have her experienced hands working on my face. Since extractions are part of the facial, I am always curious to see how my skin will fare after since it always goes one of two ways for me. Either I leave with great skin that continues to look amazing and radiant as the days go on, or I break out no less than 24 hours after and repeatedly do so for the next 7-10 days. Ugh. It’s always a gamble to be honest. But knowing the quality of Kate Somerville’s products and the popularity of this spa, (and frankly Kelly’s experience) I was hopeful. Well thankfully, I didn’t experience even one breakout after my treatment and my skin looked absolutely radiant. If only this spa wasn’t on the opposite end of the country, I would come here regularly for my skin’s maintenance. For those that want to make a day of it when visiting, the clinic is located right on Melrose Ave in the heart of all the great shopping and restaurants. And make sure either after or before your facial, you treat yourself to a tea/coffee/Instagram at Alfred Tea.
If you are interested in making an appointment, visit the site and peruse through the various treatments, and then call the clinic directly to set up a time. I highly┬árecommend Kelly if you can see her – she will work wonders on your skin.
