Guinot’s New Double Ionisation Hydradermie

Blog Author: Suzanne Olsen

 

 

 

 

Finally we are ready to introduce Guinot’s brand new Double Ionisation Hydradermie Facial to Fountains’ clients. For those of you who love the results with the original Hydradermie, get ready to be blown away with the new treatment. We are one of the first Spas in the USA to receive our Double Ionisation Hydradermie Machine. We are now offering two levels for all of our Hydradermie Facials. We will still offer the Original, Super and Ultra Hydradermie, however if you would like to enhance any of these facials, you can do so by requesting Double Ionisation.

 

 

 

The Standard Hydradermie

 

The Hydradermie is a facial that has been around for decades and our clients love it. A key factor of this facial is that it uses direct and indirect galvanic current. During the facial, your beauty therapist hands you the negative metal rod as they pass positively-charged rollers over your skin. The negative metal rod in your hand actually attracts and pulls the positive ions from the rollers deeper into your skin as they glide over the face. This process allows the active ingredients contained in the Guinot Gels to nourish and hydrate the dermis and epidermis (outer layer) at the same time relaxing the tiny muscle that holds the pore closed enabling the therapist to perform extractions with ease. Once the skin has been deep cleansed the second and very important part of the facial begins.

 

With the skin clean and the pores open we bathe the skin in oxygen, giving life to the cells. This part is so important no matter the age or skin type. A relaxing facial massage is given before the final step, the individual face mask chosen for your skin type.

The Double Ionisation Hydradermie

 

With Double Ionisation the effect of the current is dispersed directly on the surface of the skin, sending the super food gels (rich in calcium potassium and algae minerals) deeper into the skin, providing you with greater longer lasting results. The Double Ionisation Hydradermie will take the same amount of time as the Hydradermie, however there is no longer a need to hold the negative metal rod. Instead of the client holding it, in the new treatment the Esthetician holds both the positive and negative currents in their hand and use them both simultaneously directly on the skin. By having both the negative and positive electrodes pass over the skin at the same time (Double Ionisation) the client is receiving double the benefits, compared to the standard Hydradermie. The positive current helps the nutrients of the treatment gels to go further into the skin, while the negative current is pulling impurities out.

 

The treatment gels that are used during the facial are formulated to deliver deeper nutrients to the core cells, thus increasing the lifespan of that cell while also aiding the negative current to pull out impurities at the same time, making pore cleansing more effective. Compared to the results or the original Hydradermie, the Double Ionization provides more visible and longer lasting results.

To Sum It Up

 

The Double Ionisation reaches deeper, enabling the gels to perform more effectively than ever before. Bringing your skin instant radiance as well as hydration. Since the gels are penetrating deeper into the skin, the core cell’s life span and productivity are increased, in other words, you skin cell will live longer and become stronger. I really am excited to have you experience the new double ionization hydradermie and see for yourself what a difference just one treatment makes.

The Super Hydradermie is a great facial to get rid of all that dry, dull skin that has been building up over the past few chilling months. It combines the exfoliating peel of the Beaute Neuve Facial and the deep cleansing and hydration of the Hydradermie Facial. This is what I like to call “The best of both worlds.” The peel contains a gentle mix of fruit acids including Glycolic and Citric acid. Glycolic Acid is an exfoliator that removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, resulting in fresh new skin. It can also help lighten skin discoloration, such as sun or age spots, as well as help those with acne-prone and blackhead-prone skin.  Citric acid contains vitamin C, which is considered to be a very powerful antioxidant that can stimulate collagen production, plumping up the skin.

This fruit-acid exfoliation is then balanced by a neutralizing treatment  foam, that removes the dead skin cells that the fruit acid has been breaking down, and leaves the skin looking brighter, and healthier. After continued treatments the appearance of hyper pigmentation will begin to diminish.

 

Once your skin has received this gentle yet thorough exfoliation, the deep cleansing of the traditional Hydradermie begins. Your Esthetican uses galvanic current and customized gels, based on your skin condition. The current not only allows the treatment gels to penetrate further into the skin, but it also helps to pull impurities out, making extraction (if needed) much easier.

 

Following the current, an oxygenating cream is applied and a high frequency wand is passed over the skin for several minutes, to further oxygenate and soothe the skin. The facial finishes with a individually prescribed mask and followed with an appropriate moisturizer, protecting the skin from the outside elements.

 

The Super Hydradermie is ideal for clients wanting a deeper exfoliation, improve skin texture, even out their complexion, and increase overall hydration.

My favorite service to give is the Ultra Hydradermie Facial.  It does wonders for the skin!  I like to give this service because you get two amazing Guinot treatments in one.  The Ultra Hydradermie Facial offers the deep cleansing and deep hydration benefits from our regular Hydradermie as well as the relaxation and soothing effects from the aromatics facial.  This service can be customized to fit any skin concerns whether it be lack of hydration, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, or sensitive skin.

First we begin with the Galvanic Current which lightly penetrates serums with active ingredients deep into the skin.  Then we move into oxygenating the skin cells using high frequency, this also provides and antibacterial and antiseptic effect to heal the skin.  Now that we have all the deep cleansing finished we move into relaxation mode. I choose a blend of essential oils that suit your skin and continue with a long massage using gentle effleurage movements and pressure points. Next I transition into a lymphatic drainage massage to remove toxins from the facial area. Concluding the service with a plant extracts mask which is a custom-made cooling peel-off mask, blended with plant concentrates, is sure to have you leave with your skin glowing.

 

I find this facial to be the most relaxing and beneficial facials we offer, clients leave Fountains amazed with how their skin looks and feels. The Ultra Hydradermie Facial is a deluxe treatments, therefore I would receiving either a Hydradermie or Beaute Neuve Facial regularly and the Ultra Hydradermie every 2-3 months for a little indulgence.

The Basics to the Hydradermie Facial

 

Galvanic Current

 
The Hydradermie begins with a good cleansing and exfoliation, making the skin receptive to the benefits which follow. Next, depending on skin type, condition, and treatment goals, we apply customized treatment gels to the face, neck, and around the eye contourThe treatment gels target dryness, dehydration, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, and sensitive skin.

Galvanic Current is then applied to the skin, which initiates two processes known as Ionisation and Disincrustation.  The basic principles of Ionisation are that positive ions are attracted to negative ions, and during this phase, two soothing, electrically charged metal rollers glide over the skin, interacting with the treatment gels and resulting in a deeper and faster penetration of the active ingredients.  The action of the Galvanic Current also softens (disincrusts) blackheads and clogged pores, making extraction of these blackheads easier and more effective.

 

High Frequency

 
The next phase of the facial is the High Frequency phase, this helps to oxygenate the skin’s tissues and cells by stimulating circulation and eliminating toxins.  High Frequency is particularly effective in

  • Energizing skin cells that become sluggish with the aging process.
  • Accelerating the healing of blemishes as well as preventing the formation of new ones.

A cream known to us as “OZ-2” is applied to the face and neck.  The OZ-2 has a high concentration of lavender, which enhances the benefits of the High Frequency phase.  Although each phase of the Hydradermie contributes to that post-facial glow and radiance, I believe that the High Frequency phase contributes the most.

 

Massage & Mask 

 
Next comes a relaxing massage of the neck, shoulders, and facial muscles followed by a facial mask.  In the Hydradermie each phase builds on the previous one, so as we enter the last phase, the skin is even more receptive to a final infusion.  We finish the Hydradermie with an application of a toning lotion to refine the skin’s texture, balance it’s pH, and prepare it for a moisturizer appropriate for the skin type providing additional softening, smoothing, protection and glow.

 

We would be delighted to answer questions you may have regarding the Hydradermie facial. For a brief video describing the Hydradermie treatment and demonstrating it’s equipment, please refer to the video below.

 


 

Who Should Not Get a Hydradermie Facial

 

The Hydradermie is appropriate for the vast majority of skin types and conditions and provides excellent long-lasting results.  That being said, there are a few circumstances which cause us to recommend other Guinot facials because the electric currents could be too stimulating or uncomfortable.   We generally refrain from performing the Hydradermie if any of the following conditions are present:

  • Pregnancy
  • A significant amount of metal pins or prostheses in the body
  • Pacemaker

 

Fun Fact: The Hydradermie was first introduced in 1965 and has been performed in every major city in the world for nearly 50 years.
