Chicago’s George the Salon is helping clients practice yoga—for their faces. While there aren’t any downward dogs or child’s poses used, esthetician and Spa Director Lindsey Blondin says the salon’s Anti-Gravity Facial uses microcurrent and light therapy to act like facial yoga. The treatment helps tone and rebuild collagen.
