Gigi’s of Westport is an intimate, personalized cosmetic boutique. Founder Gigi Sakr is a medical aesthetician certified by the international beauty therapy association, Comité International d’Esthétique Cosmétologie (CIDESCO). She has more than 20 years of experience in aesthetics.
Beauty Begins with Healthy Skin
Gigi specializes in ultrasound and galvanic facials, as well as many other specialized treatments. While traditional facials also remain popular, the ultra sound and galvanized treatments provide the most benefits to the skin, with clear and glowing results. Proponents of these types of facials point to increased circulation and the production of air bubbles between skin cells which allow nutrients to move into deeper layers of the skin.
Gigi also specializes in acne treatments, particularly in teen-agers, and consults with her clients on how to achieve and maintain healthy skin.
Eye Lashes, Eye Brows and Waxing Services
While premium skin care remains the raison d’etre since the spa opened in 1994, several other complementary services are also offered by the professional aestheticians at Gigi’s. These include the growing popularity of eyelash extensions, eye brow shaping and tinting, eyelash tinting, and waxing services for her and him.
Gigi first trained in Switzerland where she worked alongside plastic surgeons, concentrating on pre- and post-operative skincare treatments. In turn, she has trained spa professionals across the U.S. in advanced aesthetic techniques, as well as lectured overseas for various international skincare companies. A member of the Medical Aesthetics Association, she emphasizes the establishment of the skin’s natural balance, focusing on preventive skincare.
Gigi grew up in Europe and the Middle East. She graduated from London University. She moved to Westport 30 years ago. Her daughter, Gizelle Begler, is a fashion designer. Though born and raised in Westport, she is currently living in Cairo, Egypt, to launch her design house. Many of her fashions can be seen and purchased at Gigi’s.
