Next month, skincare line Dermalogica will open the Dermalogica Academy in Chelsea. Classes kick off on May 18th at this innovative LEED-certified training center that will be largely paperless—using "interactive technology" with iPods, iPads and iPhones. Pretty cool. Exciting news for us is the ten-bed treatment room where the Academy will offer discounted $50 facials, compared to $110 at the neighboring Dermalogica retail outpost. [WWD subscription req'd]
