Who She Treats: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jessica Alba, and Chrissy Teigen
Treatment: The Signature Facial ($300)
What It Is: “All my facials are customized based on what my clients’ skin needs [but they] love my light chemical peels, microcurrent therapy, and LED light therapy. My Signature Facial includes each of those treatments as well as more for glowing, bright skin,” Darden explains. “LED light is one of my personal favorite treatments. Red light boosts collagen, reduces fine lines, and speeds up healing. The blue light kills bacteria to help treat existing breakouts and prevent new ones from surfacing.”

Who She Treats: Emily Ratajkowski, Julianne Moore, Helena Christensen, and Dakota Johnson
Treatments: Triple Crown Facial ($250) , Forever Facial ($400), LED Light Bed ($150 for 20 minutes)
What They Are: “My Triple Crown Facial and Forever Facial, plus the LED Light Bed, are the most popular treatments,” Vargas begins. “The Triple Crown Facial is an awesome treatment to get before an event and is favored by my celebrity clients before a shoot or the red carpet. I use a mild electric current to drain puffiness, tone muscle, and tighten [the] skin with no downtime. The Forever Facial has become the top service that celebrities want. It uses radiofrequency to really tighten the skin beyond anything I have ever encountered before in non-invasive technologies. It causes an increase in collagen production in the skin, while giving the person an instant facelift the day of the treatment. There are [also] many benefits you can experience from my patented Full Body LED Light Bed [as an add-on treatment], including increased collagen and elastin production, [the] elimination of sun spots, [a] reduction of deep wrinkles, [and] a filling of fine lines.”
Cecilia Wong of Cecilia Wong Skincare
Who She Treats: Zac Posen
Treatment: The Lift & Shine ($475)
What It Is: “The Lift & Shine is a combination of acupressure and lymphatic drainage facial massage,” Wong says. “[It] stimulates meridian points on the face and neck, which decreases puffiness and eliminates toxins. This facial also employs microcurrent technology to tone, lift, and contour the facial muscles. LED light therapy [is used] to renew and rejuvenate the skin while minimizing fine Iines, wrinkles, sun spots, and pigmentation.”
Dayle Breault-Hagag, Goddess of Skin
Who She Treats: Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse
Treatment: Facial Sculpting Technique with Bucca Massage ($425)
What It Is: Her holistic facial is more like an energy cleansing — crystals, affirmations, healing chants, and all — combined with skincare products and tools that leave your skin with a glow.
Renée Rouleau of Renée Rouleau Skincare
Who She Treats: Sabrina Carpenter and Demi Lovato
Treatment: Master Pore Blaster ($175+)
What It Is: “[For Sabrina] I do a customized treatment that focuses on exfoliation, warming the skin, and softening of the pores, for a safe, yet thorough, cleansing of blocked pores, closed comedones, and blackheads. I call this the ‘Master Pore Blaster,'” Rouleau shares. “If you think of clogged pores, the consistency is like that of cold butter. This treatment helps to melt it and soften it up, making it really easy to extract. We also do biobrasion to exfoliate and lift off some top layers… [as well as] a warm ultrasound [treatment]. Next, we do the Photo-Bubbles Mask, then apply a serum infused with calming ingredients. Finally, we apply a really cold mask that takes the redness out. For someone like Sabrina, plus the makeup she wears at her age, she is prone to break-outs and clogged pores. So staying on top of that is really good.”
