Placenta, Please
Beverly Hills-based aesthetician Louise Deschamps has treated some high-profile faces, like Harry Styles and Ryan Seacrest (“a regular”), with 90-minute placenta facials derived from the umbilical cords of sheep. “Their stem cells mirror the ones in humans, which encourages cell regeneration,” Deschamps says of the treatment, which costs between $350 and $600. -- Carson Griffith

Waist Away
Drawing inspiration from the 16th century, waist-training corsets (like those available at bodycinchers.com) claim to trim inches off the midsection when worn for up to two hours a day. Fans include the Kardashians and reportedly Kelly Rowland, but professionals warn that it can damage organs. “You’d be doing yourself a disservice to not build muscle support from the inside out,” says Anna Kaiser, the trainer responsible for Shakira’s rock-hard abs. -- Nick Williams

Spin Master
Just when you thought spin classes couldn’t get any more luxe, Peloton has taken them a step further. For $1,995, the high-tech workout bike and subscription allow riders to enjoy live and on-demand classes from home. In the year since its debut, fans already include Sean “Diddy” Combs and the team at Republic Records, which partnered with Peloton in May to have Natalie La Rose debut her single “Somebody” to a class of riders. “It’s a great way for labels to get music out there,” says CEO John Foley. -- Carson Griffith
