Best of Boston
2004 Best Facial
No pore goes uncleared, no blemish unbanished, no wrinkle uneased in the capable (nay, magic) hands of Lavinia Borcau. Her serene European skin-care salon is a temple to all things epidermal, and her meticulous facials have become the stuff of legend. Here, science and beauty unite as technology (epidermabration and glycolic acid) meets old-world technique (from deep pore cleansing to serious moisturizing), making for skin as radiant as it is ravishing.
