Article by: Suzanne Olsen

agelogiceyemask

We are so excited to announce that Guinot has added to their homecare eye range, Age Logic Eye Mask.

This mask will help to encourage longer lasting results the Eye Logic Treatment.

 

 

The eyes are the first area to show signs of ageing and fatigue. The skin around the eyes is thinner and more fragile than the skin on other parts of the face. With exposure to wind, cold and the Sun, early onset of wrinkles and lines can become more visible. Fluid buildup, fatigue poor circulation and inadequate care can accentuate any puffiness, as well as those unattractive dark circles around the eye.

 

 

The mask is exclusively patented by Guinot and is made of microfiber, allowing hold more of the restorative serum concentrate. It’s shape and material perfectly fit the eye contour area. Each mask is individually sealed and comes in a set of four. Designed for someone on the go who want to extend the lasting results of the Eye Logic spa treatment and those who want instant visible results, with dark circles puffiness and wrinkles.

 

Eye-Logic

 

The Age Logic Eye Mask is the exact same mask that is used in the spa’s Eye Logic Treatment and now it’s available for you to use at home. Each mask contains powerful active ingredients that deliver real results.

 

 

INGREDIENTS TARGETING FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

 

  • ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate): Delivers and stores essential energy to the vital function of the cell, for younger looking skin.
  • ACTINERGIE: Increases the oxygen consumption of the cell, boosting cellular metabolism.
  • CELLULAR LIFE COMPLEX: Promotes cell growth renewal and longevity.
  • DYNALIFT:  Firms and lifts the skin

 

INGREDIENTS THAT REDUCES PUFFINESS AND DARK CIRCLES

Fountains Introduces The Pregnancy Facial

Fountains Introduces The Pregnancy Facial

Guest Blogger: Erin Bunty

 

 

 

 

 

You asked, we answered! We have had many requests for a deep cleansing facial that can be received during pregnancy. Our flagship Hydradermie facial is amazing, but unfortunately we do not recommend it during pregnancy, due to the galvanic current. The current that we use in the Hydradermie is to help with product penetration and opening the pores to allow extractions. During pregnancy the skin can rapidly change and suddenly you’re faced with new challenges due to a change in hormones. Many pregnant women need extractions to rid the pores of excess dirt and oil.

The HydraClean has always been a go-to facial for a quick cleansing facial for expecting moms. Although the HydraClean is a great facial as well, many moms-to-be have other skin concerns that require a longer facial in order to address them. During pregnancy, you may experience dehydration or hyper-pigmentation. Due to this, Fountains Day Spa has created a new facial, geared towards pregnant women who want a luxury deep cleansing facial.

 

The Pregnancy Facial begins by using a Thermoclean Electrode with an individually prescribed gel to trigger hyper-secretion of the sweat and sebaceous glands to clean the pores and rid the skin of oil and toxins. The Esthetician performs extractions, and follows with a relaxing facial massage. Your Esthetician will use one of our luxury Guinot masks, based on your skin type, to conclude this ultimate prenatal facial.

 

Cost of The Pregnancy Facial: $120

Facial Duration: 50 Minutes

Other Facials available during Pregnancy

 

 

Aromatics Facial– This relaxing facial uses essential oil blends suited for your skin type. These oils help to nourish and hydrate the skin. The Esthetician uses these oils while performing a lymphatic facial massage. This will help your body get rid of toxins and reduce redness on your face. The aromatics mask is a setting mask, which binds water to the skin for extra hydration. This facial is perfect for any mom to be, that is experiencing redness, breakouts or dehydration.

 

Beaute Nueve Facial– This facial is for the mom to be that is experiencing issues with hyper-pigmentation. Your Esthetician uses a gentle fruit acid peel for extra exfoliation, followed by a vitamin C mask to help lighten and inhibit the production of melanin. This facial will help to unclog pores, soften lines and fade brown spots, while promoting a softer, clearer complexion.

 

HydraClean Facial– The HydraClean facial is a 25 minute facial working on cleaning the skin. This facial uses a heated wand to relax and open the pores to perform extractions. This is a good facial for moms who may have had a regular facial routine before getting pregnant and wants to continue regular maintenance. It would also be ideal for moms to be that have grown uncomfortable laying down for long periods of time.

 

How To Re-balance & Brighten Hyper Pigmentation

How To Re-balance & Brighten Hyper Pigmentation

 

Article by: Suzanne Olsen

 

Newwhite2

 

In order to remedy this problem we must first understand how the skin reacts when exposed to sun light. It is vital for our skin to get exposure to natural sun light, however too much exposure is not good. I recommend getting outside early in the morning or late in the evening, at those times the amount of UVA and UVB rays are less intense. By that I mean the rays are less damaging, and the heat is not as strong. On top of that the Sun’s nutrients (vitamin A and D) are more abundant.

 

 

The heat from the Sun’s rays penetrates deep into the dermis layer (top layer of skin). As the heat builds up, it stimulates the skin’s natural protection known as Melanin, to come up to the surface and protect the core cells below. It is the natural reaction to the heat of the sun. Unfortunately over time due to too much sun exposure, some of the melanin is left on the surface and remains as hyper pigmentation, brown spots or melasma. Once the melanin is burnt, it can become lighter in texture in winter months but does not return to its original even color tone.

 

 

Guinot’s NEWHITE Skincare Range Brings New Life to Pigmented Skin

 

Newhite

 

NEWHITE is a professional treatment program which helps to correct pigmentation disorders, whilst preserving the skins beauty. The NEWHITE program is the only brightening skin care program that can be measured in time for visible results.

 

Two Key Ingredients Throughout the NEWHITE Range

    • MELANOXYL creates two effects on the melanocytes. It slows UV-induced melanin production and reduces the initial presence of melanin in the skin.

 

  • VITAMIN C reinforces the lightening and anti-pigmentation action. Through its antioxidant and anti-free radical action it protects the skin and cutaneous tissue. Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis thus regenerating the tissue.

 

The NEWHITE range is comprised of several products, which all work together to even out skin color and bring a healthy even toned completion. Please call us and ask for assistance. Let us help you love your completion again.

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.”

 

MaryBeforeAfterProgram

 

 

 

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.

 

AgeSummumMask

Age Summum Mask

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.”

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 of treatment: 40 minutes
