Are in-home beauty treatments worth it?
Writer Alyssa Shelasky makes a statement about Dr Shirley Madhère in-home service.
I am a hard-core skin-care junkie. So when a beauty editor told me about Dr. Shirley Madhere, a holistic plastic surgeon who makes house calls in the name of beauty, I thought, “Hell yes!” I booked an appointment via her “Jet Set Beauty Rx” reservation line (no app — she’s old-school), and she came over a few days later. Dr. Shirley is a knockout: She totes around a vintage Louis Vuitton doctor’s bag and has cheekbones to kill for. Her clients, many of whom are celebs, often transport her to the Hamptons in the summer for Botox, chemical peels and fillers.
I opted for Shirley’s Vita-Glow facial — a multivitamin treatment that entailed poking my face several times with a serum-drenched needle — before my birthday party. It took 15 minutes, didn’t hurt too much and resulted in dewy, sparkly skin that lasted for about 10 days.
