For the average person, the thought of caviar and chocolate might conjure images of decadent cocktail parties. But for the aestheticians at Le Visage, these delicacies join a host of other luxurious ingredients as integral parts of their skin-care services. During anti-inflammatory facials, for example, they apply 24K gold to the face to cool and balance the skin. In other rejuvenating treatments, they use stem cells sourced from delicate Swiss edelweiss flowers to repair fine lines and increase elasticity, making skin as firm and bouncy as Roger Federer's favorite tennis ball. Even air takes on an important role in cosmetic services here, with treatments that deliver concentrated oxygen into the epidermis to soothe the complexion while opening pores to nutrients.
