T-Zone Facial

New York Spa Introduces T-Zone Facial Just in Time for Summer

NEW YORK, NY—Master aesthetician Shizuka Bernstein combats oily and congested skin this summer with a new facial targeting a notoriously troublesome area.  The T-Zone Facial at Shizuka New York Day Spa (7 West 51st St., 6th Floor) deep cleans through lactic acid exfoliation and Shizuka’s signature painless pore extractions for a clear and radiant complexion.

The T-Zone includes the Forehead, Nose and Chin Areas of the FaceThe “t-zone” is the area of the face most prone to excess oil and acne breakouts in those with oily and combination skin types.  Summer heat and humidity exaggerate these problems, creating clogged, enlarged pores and overly shiny complexions.  Shizuka offers an effective remedy in her T-Zone Facial (60 Minutes, $140), just in time for the summer.

The T-Zone Facial begins with facial cleansing using Shizuka’s all-natural Clay Cleanser ($48 at ShizukaNY.com) that contains Moroccan lava clay to absorb excess oil and other clarifying ingredients such as peppermint and witch hazel.  Cleansing is followed by a lactic acid exfoliation which removes the outermost layers of dead skin and other environmental pollutants that can clog pores and lead to blackheads and acne.  Lactic acid was selected by Shizuka for its gentle efficacy.  “I chose lactic acid for the T-Zone Facial because it is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin.  It is still able to exfoliate well, but does not carry the risk of irritation and allergy associated with glycolic facials and other chemical peels,” Bernstein says.

Shizuka Bernstein has become well-known for her innovative treatments such as the Geisha Facial® (a.k.a. Bird Poop Facial), but she is equally admired for her technique as a facialist which has consistently garnered her recognition from publications such as Allure and New York Magazine.  Her signature painless pore extractions maximize results while minimizing the squeezing, pinching and redness often associated with facial treatments.  In her T-Zone Facial, she focuses care on the forehead, nose and chin before sanitizing and closing the pores and applying her hydrating Shizuka NY Moisturizer and other anti-aging skin care products.

The T-Zone Facial is the perfect summer facial, appropriate for both women and men who want a complexion that is cleaner, more even, and healthily glowing.  As a special introductory offer, Shizuka is pleased to offer the T-Zone Facial fo $120 through Labor Day, September 7, 2009.
