I think I can speak for a lot of women out there that have had their share of painful facials.  If we’re talking about a facial with extractions, then there is no way you’re getting out of being in pain.  It’s a process we women and many men put ourselves through so that we can have clean pores and a flawless complexion, but is it worth it? Do not get me wrong, there are plenty of facials being conducted on both men and women that can be classified as a facial massage, but that’s about it. It will be relaxing, it will be a nice experience, but your face will not be “CLEAN” and I don’t know about you but if I am going to invest in a facial it better leave my face “CLEAN”.  We at Calle Ocho News set out to find an Anti-aging facial in Miami that can leave your face “CLEAN” and be the ultimate pampering experience, and we found it!

Her name is Victoria Ottenstein, she is a licensed esthetician with over 12 years of experience in the beauty industry.  I would say that she provides a high-end service at more than affordable prices.  I had the pleasure of receiving the infamous Oxygen Facial. This service began with me stepping into a robe so that my neck and facial area were completely accessible to her.

She began by removing my makeup, cleansing the skin and applying steam to then exfoliate my face in preparation for the  massage and extractions. To my surprise the painfully dreaded extractions were PAINLESS. I found it was a pleasant experience.  Specially because it had been almost two years since my last “REAL FACIAL” which was super painful and the reason I had prolonged another. After the extractions, she applied a medical grade mask customized to my skin’s needs.  I was so pleased with just that aspect of my facial that when she was thorough enough to treat my lips, my neck, and my hands I understood the difference between mediocre service and someone that really loves what they do. At Bliss Intoxicating Beauty, Victoria’s facials focus on treating all areas prone to aging, making it a thorough treatment.

Victoria took the time to explain step by step what she was doing to me before she did it. She took the time to educate me, she was patient and detailed. Victoria applied a special hand-softening treatment made in Israel, wrapped my hands in plastic, and put them in heated mitts. These heated mitts melted the treatment deep into my hands where I felt a definite difference in the softness of my hands. It was divine! She knew what I needed better than me. She explained that aging, dirt accumulation, and dead skin cell removal does not end with the face. She explained that as we grow older, the oxygen levels in our skin naturally and gradually decline, accelerating the aging process. Using oxygen literally slows down the effects of aging and plumps the surface’s cells softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Oxygen hydrates and heals the skin as well as disinfects the skin, removing any bacteria on a deeper level than a regular facial would. It is also the number one preventative therapy against skin cancer.

I would say the facial I received was a very euphoric experience and what better indicator that your esthetician knows what she is doing than her own skin. I mean I had to take a picture of Victoria’s skin to share with my readers, ITS FLAWLESS she clearly knows what the skin needs so my suggestion to you is book a consultation so she can tell you what you need because if you are like me your knowledge is limited. She can design a daily regimen for you without hurting your wallet. I mean isn’t your skin worth high-end attention?

Something else I would like to bring to my readers’ attention is the level of cleanliness and customer service at Bliss Intoxicating Beauty is outstanding. Victoria works in a welcoming environment that is modern, luxurious, and would make anyone want to pamper themselves!
