Before spending a skincare intensive day with Dr. Mom at le jolie medi spa in Studio City, Richard never realized just what pains women take for the sake of beauty.
He learned fast when Dr. Mom aka: Dr. Parvaneh Rafaeloff , co-owner of the all-purpose day spa with her daughter Sharona Rafaeloff, is not only a medical doctor, but a trained therapist, esthetician who worked her magic on his face. It stung, if hurt but it got the job done.
The gentle, soft-spoke, Iran-born beauty guru took Richard under her wing and performed her magic with lasers, oxygen and acid peels to turn the clock back and make him look years younger. While this would make any wife proud, and did, it also proved that 1. Men age better than women and 2. Men respond really well to pampering and skincare. What really drove this home is when Dr. Mom, meaning no ill will, said that Richard had better skin than me.
Why women hate men (not really, envy) they can eat more without gaining weight, lose pounds faster when on diets than women and now respond better to skincare treatments. Well it wasn’t just Richard’s reactively-accepting skin that did the trick, Dr. Mom knows what she’s doing. And so does daughter Sharona, who also performed her magic on my face using a chemical peel, lasers and assorted techniques.
We’ve been hitting le jolie medi spa since it opened about a month ago and well don’t know how we lived without it. It’s an amazing salon that performs face lifts, skin resurfacing, and several other beauty-making treatments that work like surgery but are non-invasive and safe.
We’re talking machines like the Hyfrecator 2000 which zaps away the sun damage and other facial flaws and the Dr. Oz favorite ‘Fractor Firm’ which lifts your face in minutes with the proverbial knife.
Le Jolie’s Fractora Firm treatments cost $2500 for three once a week, $3500 for five and $4500 for eight. The procedure uses advanced fractional radio-frequency that increases elastin and collagen production and miracles. First impression of Le Jolie Med Spa is that it’s like a fountain of youth discovered. This is one facility that is bound to become the hottest go-to beauty spot in Los Angeles where male and female pamper-seekers can not only relax and unwind but undergo procedures that firm, tone, slim, rejuvenate and turn back the hands of time. You can also have your hair colored, cut, extended or flattened (Brazilian, HED Keratin and more).
They also offers an impressive selection of injectable medical treatments from Botox to hormone therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic and well just about every service known in the beauty business.
Sherona customizes packages for her clients so you can look over the menu of services and mix and match a whole day or afternoon of face and body care. Remember they’re open daily until 10 p.m.
Le Jolie Medi Spa (if your French is faulty, le jolie means beautiful) is located at 13041 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, 818-501-1114. Tell them Patti sent you. You can thank me later
