Best Lifting Facial

629 Park Ave.

Lifting facials, which use a mild electrical current to stimulate circulation and purportedly firm your facial muscles, are routine maintenance for celebrities who want to keep their carefully sculpted features in close-up condition. The marquee practitioners are Yasmine Djerradine and Tracie Martyn, but getting in with them is about as easy as scoring a pair of seats at Masa tonight. The congestion should clear a little now that Aida Bicaj, who’s been training the city’s aestheticians in Biologique Recherché’s electronic lifting method (the same one used by Djerradine and Paul LaBrecque), now offers treatments out of the office of plastic surgeon Dr. Aron Kressel, at $250 for 75 minutes. In addition to the current, Bicaj uses anti-aging serums—all in the never-ending effort to make your skin rosier, dewier, and firmer.
