An esthetician since the eighties, dewy-faced Natalia Uehara has spent nearly two decades working alongside derms, docs, and holistic gurus providing medical-grade cleansing and pre-facelift skin prep. In 2002, she went out on her own and opened a small office inside cult wellness center Longevity Health. Focusing on anti-aging and acne solutions, an appointment with Natalia (she’s a one-woman show) begins with a thorough consultation, wherein your complexion, diet, and at-home regimen are considered before deciding on a customized treatment. All services include a deep cleansing with Dermalogica or Dr. Hauschka products; microdermabrasian and enzyme and glycolic acid peels are available for adding on. Be warned: A dedicated proponent of extractions, Natalia purports to spend up to forty minutes—no joke—on the squeeze for some skin types, though since her technique is gentle and flawless, clients usually leave with nary a blotch in sight.
