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.

 

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

History of Lymphatic Drainage

 

Lymphatic Draining is a gentle, non-invasive technique that has a powerful effect on the body. However this technique hasn’t been around forever, in fact the Lyphatic System was first discovered in 1622 by the medical. Later, an Italian physician Hazleton Asselli noticed milky veins in a dog after it was given food.  The term, Lymphatic Drainage was later coined by an Osteopathic Doctor from Toronto named, Frederic Maillard.

 

In 1932, Danish Massage Practitioner, Emil Vodder developed a hands-on technique for lymph drainage called, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, which is a type of gentle massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart.

How the Lymphatic System Works for the Body

 

The Lymphatic System moves fluids through your body and returns it to the Circulatory System. It is the body’s way of disposing of waste, bacteria, excess water, proteins, and more. These are cleared away from the connective tissue and returned to the blood stream for removal by the kidneys. The Lymphatic System collects proteins and molecules that are too large to return to the blood. The proteins of molecules are transported and filter through the lymph nodes and then rejoin the blood by the Subclavian and Jugular veins.

 

Lymphatic Drainage Massage requires that the skin is stretched and torqued in a specific manner, based on scientific, physiological principles that are proven to encourage lymph flow.

How Can Lymphatic Drainage Help You?

 

Lymphatic Drainage massage is a gentle moving massage and it increases lymphatic circulation it helps to remove the toxins from the body and assists load lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage cleanses and regenerates tissue and therefore promotes homeostasis in the body.

 

The internal movements that this massage stimulates, encourages the formation of lymphocytes which in turn produces antibodies which helped the body’s resistance to infection. Lymphatic Drainage also encourages and improves lymph drainage in the healthy lymph vessels, which helps keep fluid away from swollen areas.

What is a facial?

 

A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin, especially when it’s given by an experienced, knowledgeable Esthetician. Facials clean, exfoliate and nourish the skin, promoting a clear, hydrated complexion, and can help improve and maintain a youthful appearance.

 

A facial will provide the best results when it is a part of an on-going skincare program, including regular facial treatments as well as at-home care. Facial treatments can include a variety of actions, including cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, facial masks, peels and massage.

Why do people need facials?

 

  • Facials can actually clear your pores. A professional treatment will cleanse your skin in a way that you simply cannot achieve at home.
  • If your skin is behaving badly, you’ll find out why. Your skin can and will change over time, this can vary depending on age, weather and even hormones. It is always a good idea to have a licensed Esthetician help you to address those changes, identify the potential reason and to educate you on how to treat those concerns. If you have great skin now, don’t trust that it will last forever. For example, many people suffer from eczema in the winter and will simply blame dryness. Not treating a serious condition such as this can lead to long-term damage!
  • You can get extractions done the right way. Don’t lie, we know you do it, but every time you squeeze a pimple you are risking acne scarring and dark marks. Extractions done regularly by an Esthetician will help keep your skin to stay clear. It will also help prevent long-term damage that you might be causing by doing it yourself at home. You may even find that receiving regular facials will eliminate any reason to pop or pick at any blemishes. Facial are an essential step to preventing imperfections.
  • Facials are better than a visit to the beauty counter. You know when you go to a department store and someone tells you what to buy based on looking at your skin under fluorescent lights? This is not how you should be purchasing your skincare items. A knowledgeable, licensed Esthetician will provide you with personalized skin recommendations and a regimen that will address your individual concerns. The best way for anyone to make suitable recommendations for your skin is to examine your bare skin after it has been cleansed. Once you’re on the appropriate regimen, your Esthetician should update it seasonally as your skin changes. It’s like having your own skin concierge!
  • You’ll find your happy place. Facials are so much more relaxing than any DIY project you try on your skin at home. At Fountains many facials include a mix of high frequency, massage and hot towels, all to maximize the pampering experience. Stress can highly contribute to skin issues; therefore a facial can improve not only breakouts, but it can also give you a reason to take a few deep, cleansing breaths, and relax.

 

MicroDermabrasion

 

How often should people get facials?

 

The frequency in which a person receives facials depends on several factors, your skin type, condition, skincare goals, age, even where you live. On average, getting a facial by a professional once a month is ideal for someone who wants to maintain healthy looking skin.

 

It’s important to remember that the skin is a living organ, and because of that it goes through a type of shedding process. It takes about 30 days for skin cells to move up from the dermis (deeper layers of skin) to the epidermis (surface skin). Once the cells reach the surface, they flatten out, die, and stay right there on the surface of your skin. A facial simulates the exfoliation process, keeping the skin more toned and youthful looking. At a minimum a person should try to have a facial at least four times a year, as the season changes.

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 – 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.”

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.

Guinot’s New Double Ionisation Hydradermie

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.

 

DoubleIonHydra

 

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.

 

DoubleIOnHydra2

 

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.

 

Super Hydradermie

 

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.

I was recently asked by someone, what my most favorite treatment to give (and receive) was.  It took me no time to reply with the answer, reflexology.

 

 

When reflexology is preformed correctly, it not only balances the physical body, giving a great sense of well being, and total relaxation, but it also can help your emotional state as well. This transformation is achieved by stimulating the reflexes found on the bottom of the feet, which transfer electrical impulses of energy (also referred to as Meridians), to different parts of the body.  For instance if you are suffering with a migraine headache, it may not be possible to massage the head, as it may be too sensitive to touch, however by applying pressure to the big toe (the head meridian) the pressure that you are feeling in you head, will begin to subdue.

Reflexology_clipped_rev_3

Anyone can receive Reflexology, though extra care is given to pregnant women. It is a wonderful treatment to help the body heal itself, and the frequency depends on the condition you are working on erasing.  I find many of our facial clients at Fountains add it onto a facial service to give themselves the added benefits of well being and relaxation.

 

At Fountains, we give 25 or 55  minute reflexology sessions. If you have back aches or other stubborn pain issues, then I would recommend the longer treatment. Come in and try a little bit of heaven, and judge for yourself.
