Essential Oils and Massage

When you walk into a spa and smell all the incredible scents, such as lavender, peppermint, lemon, ylang ylang, etc., what’s your first thought? You think about how amazing it smells! What if I told you that those smells benefit both your mind, and your body?

 

The scientific aspect of aromatherapy comes from knowing the subtle differences in essential oils that are attributable to thousands of aroma chemicals, and how these chemical elements affect the human body. The aromatic properties of natural essential oils are a catalyst for change in the human mind and body.

Essential oil aromas stimulate the part of the brain that affects emotion. The shape of an essential oil molecule is like a key that opens lock-like structure in the olfactory nerve receptors in our nostrils. The impression of the aroma is sent directly and immediately to the limbic system. This is where memories are stored as well as where pleasure and emotions are perceived. When stimulated, the limbic system releases chemicals that affect the central nervous system. Serotonin counteracts anxiety; endorphins reduce pain. Inhaling essential oils can help attain a pleasurable emotional balance. A balanced emotional state in turn can have a therapeutic effect on physical problems.

Essential oils have positive effects on every level of your being. Their unique properties enhance the mind, body and spirit. Aromatherapy is the creative and scientific application of essential oils to create beneficial changes in our lives on aesthetic, therapeutic and mystical levels.

 

Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Lemon, Sweet Orange, and Sage are just a few of my personal favorites! Each have their own properties and benefits, but probably one of the most popular oils that I use during an aromatherapy massage is Lavender. Lavender is good for calming and relaxing as well as skin health, and restoring.

 

Overall, essential oils are a great enhancement and bring more benefits to your massage!

Everyone Is Getting Microdermabrasions…Even Statues

 

A few months ago, I read a newspaper article about how the Ulysses S. Grant bronze memorial, after 93 years is undergoing a month long restoration to remove a massive buildup of bronze patina deposits, rust, dirt and grime. “Weary. Sick. Beleaguered.” is how they described the monument’s condition.

 

What does the U.S. Grant Memorial have to do with Microdermabrasion? One of the main techniques they are using for the restoration is sandblasting — shooting streams of sand under pressure, which cuts through the grime and abrades the surface, leaving it as smooth and clean as it was 93 years ago. That basic concept for our purposes –applying a crystalline material known as aluminum oxide — is how microdermabrasion smoothes and refines the texture of the skin.

What is Microdermabrasion

 

Microdermabrasion is an effective way to diminish acne scarring, large pores, fine lines, and hyper pigmentation (sun damage) by exfoliating the top layers of the skin. Other benefits include boosting the cellular renewal rate and stimulating collagen production–both of which are key elements of youthful radiant, firm skin.

 

There are many degrees of intensity when it comes to exfoliation. The exfoliation you do at home is very mild. Microdermabrasion is much more aggressive, although not nearly as aggressive as some of the medical grade chemical peels, usually administered in a doctor’s office. One might think that microdermabrasion would be painful, but the vast majority of clients who get microdermabrasion do not feel even the slightest amount of pain. This is because the machine has intensity settings which allows the Esthetician to apply a lighter touch for more sensitive skin.

 

Microdermabrasion has been performed in the U.S. for about twenty years and in Europe for 35 years. It was developed as an alternative to a much more aggressive (and painful) treatment simply called, Dermabrasion. Dermabrasion often required an anesthetic and left the skin extremely irritated and swollen for several weeks. Microdermabrasion avoids these negative effects. In fact, microdermabrasion is often referred to as a “lunchtime peel” because there is no down time — you can get the treatment on your lunch hour and return to work with radiant, glowing skin!

 

Microdermabrasion

 

Who Should Avoid Microdermabrasion

 

Although most people are good candidates for microdermabrasion, it is not for everyone. If any of the following conditions are present, we would not recommend microdermabrasion:

 

• Extremely Sensitive skin; moderate to severe rosacea
• Large amounts of broken capillaries, also known as Couperosis
• Severe acne, characterized mainly by pustules and inflammation (wet acne)
• Autoimmune disorders
• Eczema
• Dermatitis
• Diabetes
• Psoriasis
• Lupus
• Recent Laser treatments or cosmetic injections
• Use of Accutane within the past year (a very strong acne medication with significant side effects)
• Use of highly concentrated Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) within the past month
• Use of Vitamin A derivatives such as Retin-A, Renova, or Differin within the past month

 

 

We ask new facial clients to complete a questionnaire which will give us more insight as to whether you would be a good fit for microdermabrasion. We also have a brief consultation before performing a microdermabrasion treatment.

 

 

Microdermabrasion Results

 

It is important to note that microdermabrasion will not result in perfect skin. Deep wrinkling, severe scarring and severe hyper pigmentation can be diminished, but we don’t want to give you the impression that these conditions will disappear with a single microdermabrasion treatment. We always see improvement in the skin, even after one treatment, but the degree of improvement will vary with each person. For maximum results, we recommend a series of six treatments to be performed 10-14 days within each session. This six treatment series can be done up to three times a year.

 

Another key consideration is that microdermabrasion makes the skin more vulnerable to the effects of the sun. For those who spend lots of time outside during the summer — at the beach, pool, on a boat, or on the golf course, we recommend holding off on microdermabrasion treatments during the summer. Now that fall is here, it’s the perfect time for getting a microdermabrasion treatment. But even during the cooler months, it is extremely important to still use a sun block to protect the skin and maximize the results. Applying a moisturizer three times a day for the four days after microdermabrasion will minimize any drying effects as a result of microdermabrasion.

 

MicroDermabrasion

 

Microdermabrasion is also popular with people who don’t really have conditions that they wish to correct — they simply want to maintain healthy, smooth, glowing skin. These people will often do a microdermabrasion treatment, every few months as an alternative to our traditional Guinot facials.

 

We welcome any questions you may have about microdermabrasion.

Age Summum

 

Guinot has recently launched a new anti-aging facial called, Age Summum. The facial includes 4 phases and is specifically designed to target signs of aging, with the use of pure Vitamin C and powerful Pro-Collagen to help restore the skin.

 

This facial also includes an anti-aging massage, which allows the ingredients to deeply penetrate the skin, leaving your skin feeling regenerated and radiant. This treatment is ideal for anyone who wishes to appear younger.

Anti-Aging Skincare Program – Final Week

 

Anti-Aging Skincare Program

 

 

Week 4

 

 

Mary has completed her skincare plan, let’s review what her specific skincare plan entailed. Mary and her Esthetician decided that the Anti- Aging program would be the most ideal for her, considering her skin concerns and goals. This program was created to target two main concerns regarding aging skin, the toning and tightening of facial muscles under the skin and the plumping, smoothing and firming the surface skin.

 

FullBeforeAfter

 

The two facials that create this program are the Age Summum Facial and The Lift Facial, both facials are performed twice during the duration of the program. The Age Summum works on firming of the surface skin, while plumping it up with a vigorous lifting massage, using Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C to provide a visibly-increased amount of tautness in the skin. Then, The Lift Facial focuses on stimulating the muscle tone of the face, highly concentrating on the muscles in the neck and around the mouth and eyes. The use of a micro-current is what provides the lift and stimulation to the muscles in the face.

 

Mary has continued to receive compliments from family members and friends. Her husband was the first to notice right after her first facial in the program. Mary also found herself at a party, hosted by her sister-in-law, where her friends came up to her and said how well-rested she looked.

What Changes Mary Noticed

 

 

Of course it’s always nice to hear people compliment you on your skin, however it’s most important to notice those changes yourself. Now that Mary has completed her program, we asked her what she noticed about her skin during the course of the program, and at the end. “My skin is consistently brighter, every day I’ve noticed this. Even when I am sleep-deprived, I look lifted! Before the program my skin had sometimes appeared saggy, but now I look refreshed on a daily basis.”

 

We were curious if she had noticed a difference in her skin after each facial was complete. “I saw a consistent change when I would look in the mirror. Especially first thing when I woke up and would look in the mirror without a trace of makeup on.”

Mary’s Overall Thoughts On The Program

 

 

Mary loved the results she received from completing her Anti-Aging Skincare Program. When asked if this was something she would do again in the future, she said, “Absolutely yes! I would do this program again if I was preparing for a special event or even if I needed a boost in my skincare regime.”

 

“I would recommend this program to my friends who wanted to have a real improvement in their skin, and what they saw when they looked in the mirror. I personally would only recommend a skincare program to someone I am close with, close enough that I feel comfortable talking about signs of aging skin with.” We understand Mary, you can leave it to our Estheticians to talk to people about their aging skin, just point them in our direction after you get your compliments!

Esthetician’s Thoughts

 

 

We checked in with Mary’s Esthetician, Suzanne at the beginning of her program, now let’s check back in with her and see how she feels about Mary’s results. “This program really addressed Mary’s issues that she had with her skin. Her skin looks lifted around the mouth, and refined lines around the eyes. Overall it softened her facial features.” Suzanne does feel that Mary received the results that they had expected from this program, and Suzanne notes that the results were heightened because Mary had “a great home care routine.”

 

Specifically for Mary, Suzanne would recommend a monthly facial to maintain her current skin condition. However she does suggest that Mary consider doing another skincare program in the Winter time. As the weather gets colder, the skin can tend to dry out, and a skincare program is a great way to combat that. Again Suzanne stresses that this suggestion is specifically for Mary. What type and the frequency of a skincare program will vary depending on the client and their individual needs.

 
 
 

Anti-Aging Skincare Program – Week 3

 

Anti-Aging Skincare Program

 

Week 3

 

 

 

Let’s recap what we’ve done so far with Mary’s Skincare Program, she is currently completing the “Anti-Aging” Program. At this point, Mary has completed three of the four facials in her Skincare Program, two Age Summum Facials, one Lift Facial, and one Lift Facial, that will be completed next week.

 

 

Let’s Check-in Before She Begins Her Third Facial

 

Before starting her third facial this week, we wanted to check in with Mary to see how her skin was doing. In reference to the first two facials in her program, Mary noted, “There is a clear difference in my skin, having these two facials so close together. My skin it noticeably different, it’s plump, moist and smother, and my face looks lifted and has for the past two weeks. I like what I see in the mirror first thing in the morning. I don’t look tired, my skin looks alive.”

 

This is what we would expect at this half way point. Between her first two facials, and her at home care (you can see what products she’s using be checking out Week 2 of her skincare blog) she has basically been on a skincare workout routine. Although simply being on a skincare program will boost the skin’s health, having a good at-home routine as well, will not only boost any benefits received from the facials in the program, but will also prolong the results.

Age Summum vs. The Lift

 

The Age Summum and The Lift are the two facials that complete the Anti-Aging Skincare Program. They both combat signs of aging, but do so in two completely different ways. The Age Summum fights the aging process externally, while the Lift battles signs of aging internally. Let take a closer look at each of these facials and get Mary’s thoughts on each of them.

 

Age Summum

 

The Age Summum is an anti-aging treatment that will help regenerate, firm, and restore the skin’s radiance. The exfoliation process helps to improve circulation, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and even out the skin’s tone. This treatment rejuvenates and brightens the skin for a more youthful glow.

 

Mary expressed that she felt the Age Summum immediately made your skin fell lifted and tighter directly after the facial. Then after a few days, she noticed her skin continued to feel hydrated and was fuller and plumper.

The Lift

 

The Lift facial creates a natural, temporary “Face-Lift” effect by lifting facial features through muscle stimulation. The specific muscle-stimulation that this treatment uses, is  called a micro-current. This current exerts a lifting effect on the facial features and oxygenate the skin. The Lift allows the skin to regain its tone and surface wrinkles to begin to fade. This facial is like “body building” for the face.

 

Although Mary has enjoyed both facials thus far, she does note that she may favor The Lift a little more. “They are both different. I do not prefer one over the other. Both have given me positive results. Possibly The Lift contributed a bit more to my firming and smoothness.”

Anti-Aging Skincare Program – Week 2

 

Anti-Aging Skincare Program

 

Week 2

 

Last week Mary began her Anti-Aging Skincare Program and let us come along for the ride with her. She received the first facial in the program, The Age Summum, which helps fight signs of aging on the surface level. This week Mary received The Lift Treatment, which aggressively fights signs of aging under the surface by using a micro-current to stimulate facial muscles.
 

 

Mary’s Week After Her First Treatment

 

Mary spent some precious “alone-time” with her kids, and even said that her husband complimented her on how her skin looked. Mary expressed seeing “immediate results” after receiving her first facial. “My skin felt lifted and tighter.” This is due to the Pure Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Pro-Collagen, which stimulate the synthesis of collagen, fight skin slackening and smooth wrinkles. After a few days had passed, Mary reported the her skin appears to be more “plump, full and hydrated.”

 

BeforeAfterWeek2

 

 

At Home Skincare Routine

 

Mary truly understands that any good skin treatment goes hand-in-hand with good at home care. That being said, her at-home skincare regime is not complicated. In the morning, she cleanses her skin with the Guinot Brightening Cleaner and follows with Guinot Age Logic Cellulaire as her daytime moisturizer. In the evening though she does step up her game a bit, she uses the same products in the evening as she does in the morning, but also includes Guinot Time Logic Serum before putting on her moisturizer and then uses Guinot Age Logic Yuex around her eyes. “I always remove my makeup before going to bed.”

Anti-Aging Skincare Program – Week 1

 

Anti-Aging Skincare Program

 

Week 1

 

During our Open House in June, we launched a brand new series of treatment packages called Skincare Programs. There are six different programs, each one designed to provide specific results to a targeted audience. Each program consists of  4 treatments that are to be completed in a 6-week period. The reason we are calling these packages “Programs” is because that is exactly what they are!  In a short time frame, the Program recipient will have a dramatic change in the look, texture, and health of their skin.

 

These Skincare Programs are great for anyone who is looking to amp up their skin before a big event, such as a wedding or a reunion. Or simply someone who wants to have better-looking skin and wants to begin with a jumpstart, making maintaining healthy skin so much easier.

 

We wanted to show our clients how completing a Skincare Program can make such a dramatic difference so we are going to follow along with one of our clients,  Mary, as she starts and finishes her very own Skincare Program.   Over the next few weeks, you’ll get to know her and learn about her skin concerns and goals, but most importantly, you’ll get to watch her skin improve throughout the Program, as well as see her final results!

 

Meet Mary

 

MaryCarroll

 

Mary has been coming to Fountains for the past 25 years, she is the mother of 3 children whose  ages range  from  18 to 23 years old. She is also the fur-mother of 4 dogs and 1 cat. Needless to say, she can be a pretty busy lady. Mary wanted to get a head start on boosting her skin’s overall appearance since her daughter will be getting married next year, and there will be many events she’ll be attending leading up to the wedding.

 

When Mary came in for her first facial of her Skincare Program, she mentioned, “I’m getting older and the lower (half) of my face is falling and sagging”. Based on this information,  Suzanne, Mary’s Esthetician,  and Mary both decided that she would be a perfect candidate for the Anti-Aging Program, which consists of 2 Age Summum Facials, and 2 Lift Facials.

Esthetician’s Thoughts

 

Suzanne has been working with Mary for many years now and knows her main concern is slowing down the aging process, minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as preventing drooping around the eyes. The Anti-Aging Program consists of two very powerful and complementary facials for combating aging skin. The Lift Facial addresses the signs of aging internally by toning and stimulating the facial muscles and skin through the use of micro-current. While the Age Summum Facial focuses on the face externally by exfoliating and plumping the skin, providing a more youthful appearance.

 

Throughout the Anti-Aging Program, Suzanne expects that Mary will notice a gradual tightening and lifting of the skin, especially around the neck and eye area.  After the Program is completed, Mary’s skin will feel plump and fuller and have an overall more youthful skin tone and appearance. See Mary’s results after completing her first facial in the program.

Magnesium Oil

Pure Prehistoric Magnesium Oil

Article by: Suzanne Olsen

 

Magnesium Oil

 

 

Fountains is always looking for the newest and most effective products and treatments in the alternative health field, and out latest discovery is, Prehistoric Magnesium Oil (cold filtered for purity).  Though not an oil, it has a oil-like consistency, it can also be applied topically or taken orally.

 

Magnesium Chloride is a natural mineral used all over the world in homeopathic medicines, naturopathic medicines, as well as in emergency rooms. It is one of nature’s best kept secrets, and should be in every home in the United States, as it is one of the most necessary nutritional minerals which is incredibly fast-acting, safe, and very effective.

 

 

Who benefits from Prehistoric Magnesium application?

 

Magnesium deficits in the human body, have been tied to allergies, asthma, and even attention deficit disorder (ADD,) musculoskeletal conditions, such as fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, muscle cramps and chronic neck and back pain, as well as, anxiety and heart disease.

 

Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common nutritional problems in the world today, and there is no substitute for Magnesium; it is as close as necessary to our bodies as air is! It also balances DHEA, (dehydroepiandrosterone) which tends to be on the low side when the body is ill.

 

 

How do I take it?

 

Internally:

 

Drinking 3-5 sprays of Magnesium Oil in a glass of pure water is a good way to ingest magnesium internally. It assists digestion, counteracts excess acidity in the stomach, and delivers magnesium quickly into the bloodstream for distribution to all the cells in the body. The taste is not so pleasant in water and could be mixed in a pure fruit juice as an alternative. I also would recommend swirling it around in your mouth if you have any gum or mouth concerns.

 

Externally:

 

This is the quickest and most convenient way to transmit Magnesium Chloride into the cells and tissues. It can be used as an effective and safe deodorant spray for under the armpits. While it does not stop you from perspiring, it does balance out the body’s natural odor while effectively transporting Magnesium swiftly through the thin skin into the glands lymphatic channels and blood stream, for equal distribution throughout the body.

 

Magnesium Oil can also be sprayed onto the soles of the feet before bedtime to ensure continuous absorption. Finally a massage therapist can incorporate it into a massage treatment for added pain relief.

 

 

My personal experience with Prehistoric Magnesium Oil

 

I was introduced to Magnesium Oil six months ago by my Acupuncturist, as I was experiencing severe muscle cramps in my calf muscles, mostly at night and sometimes numbness in some toes in the day time. The cramps were so severe I would be unable to walk or stretch the muscles out. Needless to say, I was becoming sleep deprived, and we all know how awful that feels! It took just one application.

 

I applied the oil directly to the calf muscles the first time I used it, and I received instant relief from the most severe pain. With continuous use, I do not have the nightly pain attacks and have noticed my back is much less stiff in the morning upon rising, and of course – sleep has been so much better! My plan is to take it orally in the morning and to apply to the soles of my feet at night on a regular basis. I also plan on applying the Magnesium Oil to any areas that I experience cramping, as needed, although since starting to use the oil they have not occurred as often or have felt nearly as severe.

 

 

Use With Caution

 

Avoid contact with the eyes, do not use on your legs if you have recently shaved or have an open cut or bug bite; you will experience a stinging sensation. I recommend diluting the area with water first.

Please consult with your healthcare practitioner before using Prehistoric Magnesium Oil, if you are pregnant and\or suffering from a serious medical condition or are taking medication.

 

 

Cost of Oil

 

You can add on Magnesium Oil to any massage treatment to aid with treating sore muscles.

 

Cost: $14

 

 

Guinot’s Newest Treatment, Eye Logic

 

Guinot’s New Eye Logic Has Arrived

promo-eye-logic-angl-620x256

 

Targets wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness in 40 minutes

Eyes are the focal point of the face. Unfortunately, they also portray signs of age and fatigue through wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness. Guinot’s new Eye Logic treatment targets these three concerns for a more youthful and energized appearance.

 

 

How it works

 

The Eye Logic Treatment is a contouring treatment that targets the very delicate eye area in just 40 minutes. This 3 Step Treatment will help eliminate wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles around the eye area.

 

Eye Serum Gel Ionization

A special eye serum gel paired with ionization through Guinot’s pattented electrodes helps drain puffiness around the eyes, decongests dark circles, and smoothes away crow’s feet, wrinkles and frown lines.

 

Eye Contour Massage

An eye contour massage tones the skin, stimulates tissue drainage, and activates sub-cutaneous microcirculation to reduce puffiness and dark circles.

 

Eye Contour Mask

An exclusive patented shaped eye mask releases the rejuvenating active ingredients deep into cells and creates an instant lifting and firming effect.

 

Eye-Logic

 

 

The Results

 

– More youthful looking skin

 

– An energized and visibly different appearance

 

– Wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed out

 

– Puffiness, shadows and bags are reduced

 

 

 

 

Why Eyes Are Vulnerable

 

Elasticity
The skin around the eye contour is thinner and more fragile than the skin over the rest of the face. The area is poorly protected and highly exposed (wind, sunlight, etc.), making it easily subject to signs of aging.

 

Water
The accumulation of water causes eyelids to swell, which is accentuated by fatigue.

 

Blood
Dark circles are caused by excessive dilation of blood vessels on the skin’s surface that become visible. The poor circulation stagnates and intensifies the bluish color characteristic of dark undereye circles.

 

 

 

Duration & Cost

 

Duration of treatment: 40 minutes

Cost per treatment: $85

 

 

 

Démaquillant Express Yeux

Guinot Démaquillant Express Yeux
 
Eye Makeup Remover

 

 

 

 

Guinot has just launch a brand new eye-makeup remover, Demaquillant Express Yeux. This eye-makeup remover removes all types of make-up from eye shadow to eyeline, even waterproof makeup, both thoroughly and quickly. This efficient eye make-up remover has been designed for the delicate and sometimes sensitive skin around the eye area, removing eye make-up instanty.

 

This remover uses a two phase cleaning approach – one part oil and one part water. When shaken, the product creates a mixture with strong cleansing properties. The oil effectively removes all eye makeup and the water portion breaks down make-up and helps the make-up remover to evaporate so that it doesn’t leave a greasy film around the eyes. It is also fragrance-free and paraben-free, making it perfectly suited for even the most sensitive eyes as well as contact lens wearers.

Treatment Product

 

This product is not only a makeup remover, it’s a treatment product. It contains ingredient, specifically included to improve the condition of the eye, while stripping it of makeup. There are four ingredients that are extremely beneficial:

 

Allantoin – softens, repairs and soothes the skin.

 

Cornflower extract – helps detoxify the eye contour and soften the skin

 

Eyeliss – reduces puffy eyes and combats tissue slackening.

 

Chamomile – Calm the eye area

 

 

 

How To Use Guinot Demaquillant Express Yeux – Eye Make-up Remover

 

Shake first, to mix the two phases together. Apply to dry cotton pads, use two separate cotton pads, one for each eye. Gently hold cotton pad over the entire eye (from lashes to brows) for 10-30 seconds then sweep downward, removing all eye makeup.
