Natural Age-Reversal Technique at Healing Facials

Joan Forlow

A scalpel isn’t the only tool that can reverse the effects of aging on the face, says skincare therapist Joan Forlow. At Healing Facials, located at 3021 Route 9 in Cold Spring, Forlow uses a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing and massage that acts as a natural facelift.

“I specialize in Age Reversal Facials using a Face Lift Massage that moves fluids, targets fine lines and tones the muscles,” she says. “This technique is a combination of lymphatic drainage and an Asian technique utilizing the beautifying points.” The process starts with cleansing and continues through to finishing serums and moisturizers geared toward the client’s skin type and condition. The end result is refreshed, revitalized skin, she says.

Forlow says her $80 “double-cleanse, double-exfoliation, double-mask” treatment is one of her most popular services. “In just 90 minutes, you feel a magical lift in your neck and face,” she says. “You receive an arm and hand treatment that exfoliates as well as supports the age-reversal process; the strokes and pressure points are used to activate your natural beauty. The facelift massage is most focused over the multivitamin mask. Then a cooling, hydrating mask is added while a hand and nail treatment is administered using reflexology.”

Forlow, a New York State-licensed skincare therapist, trained at the Dermal Institute in Manhattan. Her designation as a Dermalogica expert required six months of postgraduate clinic work and theory and equipped her with a broad knowledge of products and trademarked touch therapies.
