Does not imply person featured in the photograph had any of the treatments mentioned in this article.

The trendsetter is your friend who seems to know about everything chic and effective months ahead of everyone else in your life. It’s almost as if they are part of a secret club (or, perhaps, reads a truly informative newsletter).

Where to get it: European Skin & Massage Studio℠, Los Angeles

What to expect: Few things feel as luxurious as adding precious metals into your beauty routine. This facial fit for royalty features the detoxifying properties of gold, which is said to leave the skin smoother, tighter, and brighter. 

The treatment: Dermalinfusion® ($200)

Where to get it: Glo Spa NY℠, New York City

What to expect: This medical-grade skin-resurfacing treatment smooths, cleanses, and softens with three simultaneous actions. It stars a small vacuum-type tool that exfoliates, extracts, and infuses the skin with serum all at the same time. Regardless of your skin concerns, you can tailor the treatment to fit its needs by selecting from four available serums. 

The product: Drunk Elephant® T.L.C. Sukari BabyFacial® ($80)

What to expect: This powerful, cult-favorite mask uses a concentrated blend of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids to help resurface skin, revealing a smoother, tighter, brighter-looking complexion.
