We usually go to the gym to work out our muscles. Running on the treadmill for days on end, lifting heavy weights to get that dream figure, all them yo-ga-lates, you get it. But what about the muscles in your face? It turns out, our face requires the same attention as the rest of our bodies, but no one ever really thinks about that.
On the second episode of our ‘Good to Glow’ series, based on beauty treatments and specialty spas, we took the nearest train to a familiar New York City location- Broadway. Residing on the busy NOHO streets lies the newest location of the facial fitness spa, FaceGym.
FaceGym studio is a beauty service that seeks to solve that issue. The London-founded space caters to clients to help achieve a toned and tightened face. With the use of muscle manipulation and deep pressure massage, the beauty service puts the 40+ facial muscles to work. It's definitely not your typical facial, and that's why they call it a workout.
NYC native, Milena, went through an intense ‘workout’ with FaceGym trainer, Elyse. The “workout” included four different stages: warm up, cardio, sculpting and cool down. Throughout each stage the facial massage therapist, or in this case, “face trainer,” incorporates a mixture of exercises to give the best non-invasive facelift.
Did Milena meet her workout goal? You guessed it- she definitely did! Not only did Milena see a dramatic difference in her skin’s complexion, but she also felt it.
Plus, the workout was worth the penny! The cost of a ‘workout’ varies between $70 to $275, giving the best results for your skin. According to your facial needs, FaceGym also offers customized facial serums so that your skin can glow again!
