What it is: "Hollywood EGF Facial", otherwise known as "Penis Facial" thanks to stars like Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, who both swear it for [1
Why did we try it? Let me ask you this: Should you surpass the chance of having skin that looks as even as Blanchett or Bullock s?
Difficulty: 2 if you get a lot of mild pain and maintenance
Everything started back in March when Blanchett opened her skin care secret: a special facial treatment on aesthetics Georgia Louise New York City skin care teacher, as Bullock turned her on. She called it "Penis Facial" – which, after further investigation, we learned to get its name from the ingredients of the treatment. And on Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show Bullock explained not only why the treatment is so good, but also the reason for the name.
Bullock explains that facial enhancement increases collagen by micronutrition technology by enabling serum, including an epidermal growth factor (or EGF) serum to sip deeper into the skin. Serum, she says to DeGeneres, is "an extraction from a piece of skin that came from a young person far away." But as DeGeneres simply points out, the EGF is derived from "foreskin from a Korean baby."  Yes, she's right. The serum is made of the foreskin of a child's penis. As a representative of Louise, explains: "For Hollywood's EGF facial treatment, Georgia Louise uses her TCA shell, microtool machine and an electrifying mask to calm the skin, followed by her" secret box "of EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) serum. derived from stem cells from the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby skins – which helps to generate collagen and elastin. "
But according to Bullock, that's not what you think. "It's not like I'm lying there with little pieces all over my face," she laughs. "I call it penis facial treatment. And I think when you see how good it is for your face, you will also run to your local facial and say," Give me penis. ""
And that's my friends What I did – but instead of just a facial I went straight to Louise's NYC spa to get the exact treatment that Bullock and Blanchett have received. Spoiler Warning: I did not look like her, but my skin looked really good for days afterwards.

"It started last year when Sandra Bullock filmed in NYC and came to see me for a deep cleansing and prolonged facial glow," explains Louise. "I wanted to give her something that would transform her skin without having to undergo lasers, so I put up her tailored facial treatment with something that would give her long lasting results. Within a few weeks, her makeup artist Whitney and throwing friends wanted to know what was the cause of her amazing long-lasting glowing skin … and from that moment on, Hollywood EGF Facial was born! I have text threads that would make thoughts from celebrities, asking for "penis treatment" all the time now! "
I arrived at Louise's superfina spa on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, I sat in the lobby, placed on the first floor of a chic brownstone, and offered a cup of black tea in fine porcelain. Fancy, I know. Eventually, I went back to the treatment room with my aesthetist, Sarah, who explained that my skin would turn red afterwards and that I would have to refrain from making cosmetics for 24 hours and clean up hot water or hard products. I had to.
But I learned soon that while it would definitely be one of the best facial treatments I'll ever get in my life, it probably would not be the most relaxing. Sarah cleansed my skin (this part was relaxing) and then applied a chemical shell to sterilize my skin. Then came the numbing cream. She massage it all my face and then I was under red and blue light (they have great anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties) while the numb kicked in. Soon I could not feel my face – which meant it was time for the most important part of the facial area: micronedling.
The microneding machine is an eln needle with a dozen little needles at the end. Yes, it looks – and sounds – scary, but because I was stupid, it was not that bad. Sarah squeezed the needles in my skin in a linear pattern, poking teeny little holes in the surface of my face. While she did, she applied the EGF serum-yes, the child's brow one-so it penetrated immediately. The process took about 30 minutes – and while I was sorry that it was over, I was eager to see if I had yet had a motherfat into Bullock during that time.
But I was not ready yet. Then Sarah applied a second chemical shell, and then a thick floating face mask as she smoothed evenly over her eyes and mouth. Since I could not see or talk, I showed her taking pictures of me similar to a science project (above). Then she hugged the edges of the mask up to an electrifying machine, which would send waves through my skin to lift and tone it. Then she swiped on some more serum and SPF and I was in my happy way.
The assessment : As if the resounding "you look glowing" from my colleagues did not show how good the results were, I must have looked in the mirror to examine my skin about 20 times to get to work. It was not as much reddening as I had expected, and I really forgot. My pores looked smaller, my cheekbones looked more defined, and the lines in my brow that usually bug me were nowhere in sight. But beyond that felt soft and firm in days. Since experience, my usual redness has disappeared, so I can jump over the ground, and there is still a radiation about my skin that was not there before. And while I really do not have the budget (or the time, for the part) to get these on the usual Ocean's 8 casting, you better think I'll take better care of my skin now hoping for to maintain the results. Thank you Sarah (and you too, Sandra!).
