Raisa Ruder Gives a Facial Good Enough to Eat

2011-09-08 by Lindsay Taub

I’ve had plenty of facials in my day. In LA, it’s not uncommon to get referrals to estheticians who work out of their home or rent a room in a salon. In fact, those are the most coveted appointments, as these are the ones who don’t need a salon for a stellar clientele, whose work and word-of-mouth recommendations keep them in business. So when I was invited to get a facial with a woman whom a friend of a friend said was simply “the best – she’s done Nicole Kidman,” I didn’t hesitate when I learned that she was currently working out of a rented room in executive office space in Beverly Hills.

When I arrived, I was a little taken aback to be honest. The office space was unlike any corporate rentals I’d seen before with two receptionists operating a switchboard for all of the various businesses housed there, answering the phone for everything from a chemical company to law offices to tech consulting. I wondered how they knew which company to answer for from the incoming call number and then really didn’t care. I just wanted my fabulous facial.

When Raisa “Rhya” Ruder came to the reception area to get me, any concerns I had were immediately soothed. Average height, blond, fit, and the kind of beautiful that makes age questionable, her Russian accent was strong despite decades living in Los Angeles.  She had a confident vibe about her as we walked to her rented room in the very corporate surroundings that made me feel like I was going in for a job interview for a position I didn’t want. Inside the room, the typical massage table and facial equipment made it look less office-like, more spa-like. But this wasn’t the frou frou, lather-me-with-products type of facial. It was apparent from the very moment she looked at my skin that this was not about relaxation, but rather skincare. Plain and simple. The skin treatment was as close as you can get to “medical” without being in a dermatologist’s office, although she does have a medical degree in nursing.
