Easily achieved and effortless.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over years of dermatological appointments and elimination diets (coupled with ‘that time of the month’), is that my skin is not “facile.” But that’s exactly what drew me to this trendy, yet highly advanced medical boutique.
FACILE is a trilogy of a dermatologist office, spa, and beauty shop whose mantra is ‘Good Skin Should Be Easy.’ FACILE offers a personalized approach to services with remedies that range from facials to injectables to all natural medical grade skin treatments.
Danielle Nadick, the CEO and co-founder behind this medispa boutique, explains, “From the moment you walk into FACILE you understand why we’re different, our space is incredibly inviting.” (In fact, both their West Hollywood and Pasadena locations look more like a home than a doctors office!) Besides the warm and ‘gram-worthy aesthetic, it’s the tailored approach to services that really separates FACILE from the rest. Just check out their menu and you’ll understand why their unique treatments aren’t the cookie-cutter facials that most spas offer, but rather ones that are personalized for you and designed to meet your needs on any given day.
Nadick was able to achieve this above-and-beyond approach with the help of skincare expert and now business partner, Dr. Nancy Samolits. “I happened to be getting wedding ready and was recommended to see this incredible doctor by a friend who is seemingly growing younger each year,” remembers Nadick. “So I listened and made an appointment with Dr. Samolits.” It was at her third appointment when she had the cliche aha!-moment and decided to ask her doctor if she’d be interested in meeting outside the office to discuss possibly teaming up. They did, and a little over a year later the doors of FACILE officially opened in West Hollywood.
For those tickled to book an appointment, first-timers can expect a one-on-one consultation with an expert esthetician — a perfect way for clients to discuss their skin goals and build a plan.
Nadick specifies that all of their providers have an incredibly subtle and natural touch. “We don’t want to change the way anyone looks,” she states. “We want to make sure that you still feel like you — just with better skin!”
Some of Nadick’s personal menu favorites for a glowing complexion are:
Microneedling with PRP — When the provider takes your blood and spins it in a centrifuge until you’re left with plasma (which is the healing property in our blood). They then microneedle it into the entire face, creating micro channels in the skin which helps with collagen production and assists in cell turnover.
Microinfusion — A custom “cocktail” of botox, filler, and vitamins that are stamped into the top layer of the skin with gold needles. Microinfusion helps with fine lines, pore appearance, discoloration, acne, and overall glow.
The Jelly Mask FACILE Facial — Estheticians create a customized facial based on your skin. It’s one of the most satisfying feelings out there!
Amping up your skincare routine and carving out time for some extra TLC is a great form of self care. According to Nadick, “Self-care is the act of listening to and assessing your needs without judgement at any given time and addressing them with care and attention. Aesthetic treatments, for some, are a way to feel like their outside appearance matches the way they feel on the inside. I am all for doing the things that help you feel like your best self.”
At FACILE, treatments are only a small portion of Nadick’s self-care ritual. The boutique-side of the business offers skincare and wellness goodies that clients can take to-go. Nadick’s fave picks are an ice roller for morning puffiness, a HanaCure face mask for soft and supple skin, and a Saffron Latte for mental health.
For those that aren’t Angelinos but vibe with FACILE, Nadick and Dr. Samolits have brought their knowledge to the masses with theSKIN. Their recently launched editorial platform is concentrated on health and beauty content with a no BS approach — and they’ve even added a twist by touching on taboo topics like “Vagina Makeovers” and “Porn for the Modern Woman.”
Book your next treatment at FACILE and indulge in our Saffron Latte Wellness Powder sold at both their West Hollywood and Pasadena locations, and be sure to subscribe to theSKIN for beauty insights with a twist!
