Joanna Vargas, recognized skin care expert and founder of her eponymous skin care collection, is focused on one thing: beautiful skin. Combining her commitment to plant-based ingredients and her passion for science, Joanna’s nature-meets-technology approach has made her one of the most sought-out estheticians and experts in the beauty industry today.
Her Love With Natural Skin Care Products…
Bringing her background in photography and a BA in women’s studies into the beauty industry, Joanna navigated her way through her early days as a facialist in New York City. Joanna first fell in love with natural skin care products while practicing esthetics at a day spa, and later worked for a celebrity dermatologist, where she learned extensively about anti-aging treatments and the most efficacious ingredients and formulas available. Joanna realized that people want active ingredients and the best results possible, and it was from this idea that her brand was born.
As her practice evolved and expanded to both coasts, Joanna was inspired to apply her philosophy to a namesake skin care collection, making it possible for clients and fans everywhere to maintain their skin at home. In 2020, she launched her first-ever at-home skincare device, Magic Glow Wand, that also won an Allure Best of Beauty Award. In 2018, her Rescue Serum was named an Allure Best of Beauty winner, and simultaneously her Super Nova Serum won InStyle’s Reader’s Choice Award. Joanna Vargas Skin Care products are now sold in retail stores internationally.
Technology & Methods..
In creating her signature services, Joanna combined her coveted products with proven techniques including microcurrent, microdermabrasion, oxygen infusions, and LED light therapy to deliver immediate results. Joanna specializes in cutting edge treatments, from her microcurrent Triple Crown Facial that tightens and lifts the skin for an instantly sculpted face, to her patented LED RevitaLight Bed, developed from NASA studies that found LED lights heal the skin at a 300% faster rate, promote collagen production, reduce inflammation and shrink pores. Joanna’s treatments are completely unique, from her training methods, to her knowledge and attention to detail to her products and machines. Each of these elements contribute to the Joanna Vargas experience that is unparalleled to other salons. The Joanna Vargas Salons are located in New York and Los Angeles.
In February 2020, Joanna released her first book, “Glow From Within” – a lifestyle guide on how to everyone can achieve glowing skin from the inside, out. In it, Joanna shares a comprehensive overview to skincare past just the basics: how nutrition affects your skin, self-care rituals and includes detailed tips for troubleshooting highly specific skin concerns, all mixed in with Joanna’s sought-after insider secrets and real-life anecdotes from celebrity clients.
Julianne Moore, Rachel Brosnahan, Mindy Kaling and Maggie Gyllenhaal are just a few famous faces who look to Joanna for radiant skin. Joanna’s results-driven treatments and products are notorious for being a favorite among celebrities, it-girls, editors, and people who simply want the best for their skin. Her non-invasive techniques – paired with her natural and effective skin care products – result in healthy, glowing skin for everyone.
