Astrid Bedrossian, director of training at the Georgette Klinger Salon, has been performing facials for nearly 30 years. First trained in Bulgaria, Bedrossian’s methods are top-notch. “My Eastern European training was very medically-oriented,” says Bedrossian. “It’s what makes Georgette Klinger’s facials
unique and effective in maintaining younger-looking, healthier skin.”
“A proper facial begins with a thorough examination of the skin to determine your skin type and the right course of action. This step is extremely important, because many people don’t know what kind of skin they have, or how to care for it at home. There is no set pattern for a facial—I adapt each step to fit an individual’s skin care needs.
“Similarly, your skin type determines the frequency of your facials. Oily skin should first be treated once a week, for four consecutive weeks, because all of the impurities simply can’t be removed in one or two treatments. Afterwards, one facial per month is adequate for maintenance. Dry skin requires two facials within a week to ten days to ensure good hydration—when you’re just getting started, one facial won’t give your skin a month’s worth of moisture. Again, monthly maintenance is sufficient afterwards.
