VIVE LA RE­SIS­TANCE

The Kit - - THEKITCA - — Olivia Stren

If your North Amer­i­can im­pa­tience still han­kers for a more in­tense anti- ag­ing blitz, in the spirit of French revolution, take a mini break from the douce reg­i­men and try a Pico Fa­cial, among the most re­cent laser tech­nolo­gies. First fash­ioned for tat­too re­moval, the Pi­coSure laser dispatches short bursts of en­ergy (in tril­lionths of a sec­ond) to stim­u­late col­la­gen pro­duc­tion, re­fine skin tex­ture, soften fine lines, wrin­kles and sun spots and gen­er­ally be­stow ra­di­ance. The pro­ce­dure, avail­able at Toronto’s SpaMed­ica, feels vaguely like your face is be­ing ca­ressed by birth­day sparklers but its results—brighter, clearer, smoother skin— do make one feel quite fes­tive.
