July 7, 2023

  “I am so excited to be in this new standalone space in Los Angeles, my largest LA location to-date. I am so grateful to everyone who has supported my career in LA which started 15 years ago in a hotel room at the Chateau Marmont.”

Replacing her previous location at The Sunset Tower Hotel, this gorgeous, standalone location is her largest LA salon to-date. Along with the new opening, Joanna introduces an enhanced version of her signature Triple Crown Facial, the Triple Crown Royale which features NEW patented technology for an even more sculpted and glow-worthy result.

Celebrity Facialist and Skincare Expert Joanna Vargas introduces a NEW Los Angeles Salon. Nestled in the vibrant neighborhood of West Hollywood, this luxurious 5,000 square foot standalone salon marks a significant milestone in Joanna’s journey, representing her largest Los Angeles location to-date and an embodiment of her remarkable growth.

Replacing her previous space at The Sunset Tower Hotel, this new salon allows Joanna to comfortably accommodate her growing portfolio of cutting-edge face and body treatments and patented technologies. Housing 10 treatment rooms, in addition to a dedicated entrance for VIP and celebrity clientele, the former theater – turned exclusive skincare destination – also features art by fashion photographer Yelena Yemchuk. Along with the new opening, Joanna introduces an enhanced version of her signature Triple Crown Facial, the Triple Crown Royale.

The NEW patented technology allows her to electrify her sheet masks, contour with an electric gua sha, and hand sculpt the face with electric gloves, for a completely custom treatment. The Joanna Vargas Salon Los Angeles provides clients the opportunity to escape the bustle of the city and retreat to a relaxing and quiet space.

The extensive menu includes an array of treatments, such as Joanna’s Supernova Facial, NEW Magic Glow Dermaplaning Facial, patented RevitaLight LED Beds, Relaxation Pods, and a variety of luxurious massages.

Her popular, go-to Triple Crown Classic Facial has been upgraded with NEW patented technology and fine-tuned steps to yield even more contoured, lifted and glow-worthy results.

The new technology allows Joanna to electrify her sheet masks, contour with an electric gua sha and hand sculpt the face with electric gloves, instantly draining puffiness, tightening the skin, and reshaping the face. Building upon the success of the original treatment, which garnered a dedicated following among celebrities and skincare enthusiasts, the NEW Triple Crown Royale Facial combines Joanna’s signature techniques with a custom, state-of-the-art patented machine, created in collaboration with 7E Wellness.

The revamped Triple Crown Royale Facial maintains the beloved Microdermabrasion, Microcurrent and Vitamin-Spiked Oxygen steps of its predecessor, while introducing new elements to enhance the overall experience and results. New benefits include improved lymphatic drainage for a defined jawline, pronounced cheekbones and refreshed eyes, and increased collagen production to diminish fine lines and wrinkles over time.

“My Triple Crown Classic Facial has always been the most popular and most recognized facial for almost 20 years. Updating the technology, fine tuning the steps and adding new features allows for a more precise and tailored approach to targeting lymphatic pathways, achieving better lymphatic stimulation, and maximizing incredible results, whether you are 25 or 85! The best part about this treatment is that it is still entirely non-invasive!” says Joanna. Includes:

Diamond Peel: For gentle exfoliation to remove impurities and dead skin.

Microcurrent: Provides a “facial workout” and stimulates muscles to promote collage and elastin, improve muscle tone, reduce puffiness, and eliminate signs of aging.

NEW Custom Waveforms: Enhances lymphatic drainage effects and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles with electrified sheet masks, electric gloves for custom hand sculpting of the face, and an electric gua sha for advanced contouring and tightening. Boosts radiance and supplies nutrients to the skin.

Meet Veriphy, a revolutionary skincare brand that combines the power of natural ingredients with cutting-edge technology designed to address a wide range of common skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and acne, and are suitable for all skin types.

Veriphy skincare is a brand that has been gaining popularity in the beauty industry, and for good reason. Their products are not only effective, but also innovative. One of the key ingredients that sets Veriphy apart from other skincare brands is Photospherix®.

Photospherix® is a type of phytoglycogen, which is a natural carbohydrate derived from plants. It is specifically extracted from the seeds of certain plants, and has been found to have numerous benefits for the skin. In particular, Photospherix® is a powerful antioxidant, which means it can help to protect the skin from environmental damage caused by pollution and UV radiation.

But that’s not all. Photospherix® is also incredibly hydrating. It has been shown to increase the skin’s moisture levels by up to 35%, which is great news for anyone with dry or dehydrated skin. And because it is a natural ingredient, it is gentle enough to use on all skin types.

Veriphy has incorporated Photospherix® into a number of their products, including their Power Trip Facial Serum and their Self Absorbed Facial Moisturizer. These products have been praised by beauty bloggers and skincare enthusiasts alike for their ability to hydrate and protect the skin, leaving it looking and feeling soft, smooth, and radiant.

All products are developed and manufactured in Canada using sustainable packaging and practices. All Veriphy products are up to 98% natural and 100% cruelty-free, with no animal testing.


2023’s Most Trending Skin Treatment With Dr. Azza Halim

February 10, 2023

One of the most trending facial treatments in 2023 is Laser resurfacing and without a doubt one of the best ways to fix your skin concerns. The laser works by creating a beam of light through your skin to help reduce wrinkles, smooth and so much more! The light naturally pushes out the outer layer of the skin, replacing it with new skin. Laser resurfacing is found to be much more efficient than other skin rejuvenation procedures like chemical peels. It’s easier to target acne scars and spots on your skin by using the laser. The laser also is the best option for tightening your skin encouraging collagen reproduction.

I have been super excited about lasers for years and was thrilled to learn about the expertise of Dr. Azza Halim who focuses her medical practice on treatments for anti-aging and beauty solutions. Her overall goal is to create a plan for her patients that gives them the best overall skin rejuvenation results. She has done a great deal of laser resurfacing with outstanding results.

She is considered one of the top docs and educators in the country when it comes to cutting-edge lasers, with thriving practices in Newport, Boca and IL. I’ve heard incredible things about her expertise, craft and care.

There are a variety of other benefits when its comes to laser resurfacing like:

  • Reducing wrinkle and fine lines

  • Reducing size of pores

  • Smoother skin texture

  • Discoloration and redness reduction

If you are in any of these areas, be sure to book a consult with Dr. Halim to find out which laser is best for your needs.

Glutathione: The Secret Behind Auro Skincare

October 26, 2022

The Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System, a patented, first-of-its-kind technology, optimizes antioxidant absorption for transformative skin repair

Every day, the skin is attacked by oxidative stressors – also known as free radical damage – like UVA and UVB sun rays, pollution, and severe weather, to name a few. Glutathione (GSH), often referred to as the “Master Antioxidant,” is a naturally occurring tri-peptide amino acid that is produced in every cell of our bodies and recycles all other antioxidants to provide maximum detoxification of, and protection from, free-radical damage. Unfortunately, as we age, we stop producing enough Glutathione to sustain adequate levels.

Before now, it has not been possible to deliver such high doses of Glutathione, or other antioxidants, to skin in a way that was absorbable for maximum benefits. The Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System, discovered and developed by pharmacist and Auro founder Dr. Nayan Patel, is a patented, first-of-its-kind solution to this challenge.  Powered by sub-nano technology, it delivers antioxidants, like Glutathione, Vitamin C, Resveratrol, and more, to the skin in a more potent way than ever before. Auro Skincare’s four new products launching this month harness this technology to help users improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, dullness, dehydration, uneven tone, and texture.

 AURO skincare is paving the way with a protocol of ultra-potent antioxidant formulas powered by the patented, first-of-its-kind Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System.

I just started my regime, and I’m already INTO IT. First off, this isn’t your mama’s skincare. AURO is the real deal – think sulfur smells and ingredients that mean business. Which of course, I love.

“Glutathione, the Master Antioxidant, is vital and essential for defending skin from the aging effects of oxidative damage caused by environmental stress. The patented, first-of-its kind Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System, developed by pharmacist and Auro founder Dr. Nayan Patel, provides skin with Glutathione, and other antioxidants like Vitamin C and Resveratrol, in a deeper way than ever before.”

Dr. Sheila Farhang: LA’s Go To Dermfluencer

August 15, 2022

Meet Dr. Sheila Farhang, Millennial skincare expert,
Board-certified Dermatologist entrepreneur influencer. 

Dr. Shelia Farhang

I love meeting new experts in the dermatology and aesthetics field. When I think back on the evolution of it all, it’s truly incredible how far things have come. I get a major thrill meeting the new, young practitioners who are currently gaining momentum. It’s always interesting to learn what makes them special and why – in a field that has become so popular. What is their point of view? How is their eye? Are they jumping onto trends defined by social media and filters or are they finding their own vision? You get the idea!

Board-certified dermatologist and double-fellowship trained cosmetic surgeon Farhang recently expanded her practice from Tucson to Beverly Hills and is now seeing patients at her new part-time clinic within Sunder Plastic Surgery on Rodeo Drive.

First off, is this doctor not the most divine creature you’ve ever seen? Especially in THIS SPACE, where so many injectors look like the really played-out, over-used, tacky AF, living embodiment Instagram filters!

No overly plumped lips, over-filled ANYTHING – she waltzed in looking so naturally beautiful, I knew right away, Dr. Sheila had an eye, and a tasteful one at that. That is very important to me when I meet a new provider in this world : What is their taste level? How do they see themselves? Etc…She was a class act head to toe. Elegant, understated and natural. Hence her natural approach has been hailed in all her press.

Featured in the NY Times for her “barely there” approach to botox and her subtle “lip flip” plumping technique, many of Dr. Sheila’s patients are new to botox injections and trust her natural approach.

Named by Women’s Health and Forbes as a top derm influencer, Sheila Farhang is a board-certified dermatologist and double fellowship-trained in cosmetic surgery as well as cutaneous oncology & reconstructive surgery. Dr. Sheila is an entrepreneur–both founder of her dermatology practice Avant Dermatology & Aesthetics and co-founder of her start-up health tech company, Vispera. Dr. Sheila is also known for her integrative approach as she is faculty for an Integrative Dermatology program and lived in Bali while obtaining her Yoga instructor certification. She has been a featured expert on ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, THE DOCTORS, THE REAL, KTLA and more.

So I went in for a tiny basic touch-up – a little around the eyes, between brows, the light touch to soften my extremely emotive and expressive face.

Then we got down to business. How can Xeomin support me, beyond the obvious aesthetics?

First off, I suffer ( YES SUFFER!) from major Bruxism. That means, night teeth grinding, chomping my teeth until they are loose – I know, a real horror show – major gum recession, and more. On one side of my face, my masseter muscle pops out and it looks like I literally am sucking on a jawbreaker. So yes, there is a minor visual component, though it doesn’t really bother me because it only is apparent when I am talking or chewing or swallowing – none of which I do in the mirror. But there is a very real medical aspect – and that is, I have lost 4mm of my bite from clenching. I have headaches – it is a real issue – let’s not forget my teeth popping out and needing gum surgery.

So, we attended to that side. It has only been a few days – but will take some more to settle in. I cannot wait. We did a small amount so as to not over-treat, which can cause laxity. We don’t want that. So, Dr. Sheila said let’s under treat, see how this goes, and asses from there.

Next – my platysma muscles are, shall we say, EPIC. Truly so AGRO that I look like The Hulk. It’s actually disarming when I catch it on a zoom (I train clients on Zoom and can see them from several feet away) – It is like my neck is hosting an underground tree root party in the Redwoods. (Did that analogy work?)

We hit them up with some Xeomin to soften the bulges. They remind me of the trauma I experienced witnessing my mother’s varicose veins at the beach for the first time. “There are snakes under your skin! Truly just…ICKY. (And gross).

I loved my time with Dr. Sheila. The office is spectacular. I love that she is doing a lot of TV promo, sharing her expertise (you can catch her on a host of shows and news channels) and she’s young and hungry to be the best. Clearly, she’s already arrived.
