To help complexions glow their brightest, Gina relies on Dermalogica products and advanced techniques such as oxygen infusion treatments and microdermabrasion. Each of her treatments zeroes in on a specific issue, whether that's signs of aging, acne, or inflammation. But Gina is an expert in more than facials. She also tints and perms brows and lashes, waxes away unwanted hair, and meticulously applies permanent makeup, imbuing skin with pigment that shaves time off morning routines and prevents the deforestation of lipstick fields.
