Best Facial in Boston

InStyle Magazine

After steaming pores at the city’s top spas, aesthetician Natalie Maibenko went solo a few years ago. As a result she opened up her tranquil South End skin studio. 

Shunning harsh ingredients in her anti-aging facials, she packs vitamin A and C into her peels and serums to erase fine lines and reduce pigmentation as well as boost collagen production.

Trained in skincare and massage, Natalie Maibenko makes her own organic oils. She also incorporates healing rubs into the facials at her tranquil studio. 

Shunning deep peels and scrubs, she packs vitamins A as well as vitamin C in her arsenal of serums to erase fine lines, inhibit and reduce pigmentation, as well as boost collagen production. Consequently, the end result is a lasting glow.

We like it hard and deep. But don`t mistake that for a no-frills experience, please. We want it all – strong hands and ambiance. That`s why Maibenko is tops in our book. 

This pretty Eastern European transplant is stronger than she looks. She also communicates blissfully with your muscles, stretching and rubbing as well as applying deep pressure to just the right spots.

Our Best Facial In Boston

January 2010 Improper Bostonian Magazine

Vitamin C Revitalizing Facial with Revitalight LED Treatment.

Description: The facial and the LED treatment work to reduce fine lines and make skin healthier. A photostimulation process encourages collagen production without turning you into a Hollywood housewife.

Health Benefits: This isn’t a gimmicky facial that leaves you smelling line Sunny D. Vitamin A and C serums help reverse sun damage, while the LED light is rejuvenating without pesky UV rays.

Novelty Factor: Electrical stimulation from a “galvanic machine” coaxes your skin to absorb the vitamins.

Account: Starting with the LED treatment, the therapist covers your eyes and moves a small light slowly around your face – like an erazer removing each, tiny flaw. Next, your skin is coated with a fruit bowl’s worth of nutrients. After a few applications, it’s time for an upper-body massage.

As a result: Clearer skin with fewer fine lines.
In a Nutshell: “Feels like I cheated plastic surgery.”

“It was hard to find a bad massage – if indeed there is such a thing – in this year’s bunch.

Natalie at Unique Verve put us quite pleasantly to sleep…”- Best of Boston 2009 edition, Boston Magazine.
