Spa Review: Remede at the St. Regis San Francisco

How Champagne and Wax Can Lead to Better Skin


There are a lot of reasons to like Remede Spa at the St. Regis San Francisco: the sleek women's lounge, the pool access, the cozy robes, the handmade chocolate truffles and Champagne offered post-treatment. But the best of all may be the luxe spa's customized facial. Along with pampering perks such as a paraffin foot wrap, the treatment itself is nearly obsessive about treating skin well. For instance, instead of using steam to prepare the face for extractions, estheticians paint warm paraffin on the face; not only is the temperature soothing, the wax also has a lower chance of irritating skin than hot steam does. Unlike poke-and-prod facials that leave a red, angry complexion behind, our gentle facial virtually stopped a nasty breakout while leaving skin glowing. At $175 for an hour, Remede's facial isn't for the light of wallet (ours was comped). But if you're looking to be seriously pampered and get serious skin care at the same time, Remede delivers on all counts.
