No Pain, No Gain: Extreme Facial Draws Blood

Celebrities like Penelope Cruz, Kate Upton and Gisele Bundchen go to aesthetician Christine Chin, known by the nickname “Mean Christine,” for their skincare needs.

Mean Christine’s painful facials can pack a punch, but clients still wait up to three months for an appointment and travel from as far as China to New York to see her.

Sara Haines and Kelly Harold of Yahoo News went to see Chin at her discreet New York City spa. Chin explained to them that while other more relaxing facials don’t actually solve skin issues, her painful facials do the trick.

“We analyze your skin and if you have a problem, we dig it up,” Chin explained to Haines and Harold of Yahoo News.

Chin also claimed that the biggest mistakes people with skin issues make are not applying sunscreen, leaving makeup on overnight and not using toner.

“If you don’t use a toner, it’s like you tell your dentist I don’t use a tootbrush,” Chin told Yahoo News. “I’m interested in cleaning skin, meaning all of my clients bleed. If you don’t get a good cleanup, your teeth are going to have a lot of plaque. It is the same as skin.”

However, she claims that clients rave about her attention to detail. At 250 dollars, her facials do not come cheap.

”I was nervous for our appointment, but like a skin whisperer, she identified the reasons for my problem areas and then she went to work,” Haines commented on Yahoo News. “First, she used a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand. It cleans the skin with suction that feels like the lick of a cat’s tongue. And then she unveiled her painful secret weapon, a lancet. She uses this tool to cut and make extractions from the skin.”

Haines comments that she left the spa feeling pink and puffy. However, while her facials may be painful, Chin offers long-term results.

“Your skin will look nicer, dewy and clean for a long period of time,” Chin promised to Haines.

Microdermabrasion is an effective way to achieve healthy, radiant and youthful looking skin. There are plenty of cosmetic options for Skokie residents and summer is the perfect time to reverse the effects of sun exposure through microdermabrasion.
