The facialist to the stars, including Rachel Weisz and Julianne Moore, is setting up shop on the West Coast.

Rachel Weisz, Julianne Moore, Karlie Kloss, Sofia Coppola, Zac Posen and other celebs from the film and fashion worlds have helped make Joanna Vargas New York's go-to facialist for a healthy, natural glow. And beginning this month, they will have another salon to visit.

Vargas has expanded her business west, opening an airy and intimate salon tucked away in West Hollywood.

"L.A. was a no brainer because I have so many dedicated clients who live there," she says. 

Vargas will be able to treat clients before awards shows and major premieres at her own salon, which also is staffed with a team of senior estheticians trained by her.

The new salon will feature everything available in the New York space, including popular treatments like the LED light bed, Triple Crown Facial, Forever Facial and Vita Lights.

In addition, a detox treatment exclusive to the Los Angeles location will be offered. "It’s a full-body detox peel," says Vargas about the service, which is bound to be popular with the Hollywood crowd. "It's a full-body microdermabrasion followed by a massage with compresses of shredded coconut, so the skin is detoxed, hydrated and soothed."

The full range of Vargas’ organic skincare collection also will be available to buy at the salon, including the Forever Glow Anti-Aging Face Mask ($75) and the celeb favorite Daily Serum ($85), said to be like a "green juice" for the skin.

The Joanna Vargas L.A. Salon is now open; however, the West Hollywood address will remain unlisted for client privacy. Those looking to book a treatment can call Vargas’ New York salon at 212-949-2350 for an appointment in Los Angeles.
