Would you spend $1,250 on a facial? Even if you would, you might not be able to find it—the Beverly Hills spa that offers "Personal Face Training" won't give out its address. There's also the $1,000 3D facial at Paul Labrecque, where celebs go to get microdermabrased, lasered, and buffed. Would you smear bird poop on your face?
