There’s never a shortage of beauty trends and one of the strangest to come out in some time is nicknamed the “penis facial”. Created by celebrity facialist Georgia Louise, penis facial fans include Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. Blanchett talked to Vogue Australia about her experience with the “penis facial”.
“Sandy Bullock and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial and it’s something – I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just cause it smells a bit like sperm – there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial.”
Georgia Louise actually calls the penis facial the ‘Hollywood EGF Facial’ and it will run you a steep $650. According to Louise, the facial includes a cleanse, followed by an intensive TCA peel, micro-needling machine and an electrifying mask to calm the skin, followed by her ‘secret box’ of EGF serum (Epidermal Growth Factor). EGF is derived from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby foreskin – which helps to generate collagen and elastin. FDA approved stem cells and peptides are penetrated deep into the skin using a special electric micro- needling wand. This process allows the active ingredients to be transported deep in the skin by creating temporary micro- channel.
If you’re interested in getting your own “penis facial”, you’ll need to get in line. Believe it or not, there is actually a two-year wait list.
