DETOXYGENE TREATMENT

 

 

Reoxygenating Detoxifying Treatment

In just 50 Minutes, the Détoxygène Treatment reoxygenates the skin, removing toxins and pollution.

 
 

RESULT

Immediately after the Treatment, the skin is radiant, and the complexion is luminous. The skin breathes.

 
 

TREATMENT SECRETS

 

 
 

EXFOLIATION

The dual enzymatic and mechanical exfoliation eliminates dead skin cells loaded with toxins and pollution particles, smoothing and refining skin texture.

 
 
 

 
 
 

DETOXIFYING MASK

The mask acts as a ‘pollution magnet’, picking up and removing pollution particles to detoxify the skin. A chemical substance known as EDTA forms a chelate with metals, enabling their removal. Green Clay absorbs toxins and impurities.

The mask has a specific cream texture. Use a spatula to apply it over gauze placed on the customer’s face then peel off.

 
 
 

REOXYGENATING MASSAGE

Massage reoxygenates the skin through manual techniques, which boost skin microcirculation, and through active ingredients in the massage serum. Actinergie (Corn extract) increases the oxygen uptake of cells, thereby stimulating cell metabolism, and ATP (biotechnology-derived active ingredient) provides cells with the energy they need to function properly.

Purisoft (Moringa seed extract) forms a detoxifying barrier that protects the skin from the harmful effects of pollutants. It also helps remove harmful microparticles and prevent them from adhering to the skin.

Dermaline (Laminaria algae extract) moisturises the skin and helps improve tonicity.

 
 

 IDEAL SKIN TYPE:

All types

 
 

EXPERT ADVICE:

The Détoxygène Treatment prepares the skin for other Treatments.

This Treatment can be performed several times a year, whenever the need arises (peaks in pollution, times of stress or intense fatigue, seasonal changes, after the year-end holidays, etc.).

Ultra Hydradermie

 

 

Treatment Spotlight:

Ultra Hydradermie

Guest Blogger: Bri Anderson

 

 

My favorite facial to perform is the Ultra Hydradermie. This is an 80-minute relaxing, pampering treat for your face. It combines the full Hydradermie facial with key aspects of the Aromatic facial. I start off every facial with a consultation with my clients to learn first what results they are looking to achieve, this is followed by cleansing and exfoliating the skin. During exfoliation, I incorporate some lymphatic drainage techniques on the face and décolleté, helping my clients to fully relax.

 

 

I then select custom serum gels that are best suited to what my client needs and continue with Galvanic current rollers. The rollers help penetrate the active ingredients of the selected gels into the skin deeper and faster. I follow this up by using an oxygenating emulsion paired with a high-frequency wand. High frequency is known for its antiseptic and healing effect on the skin, as well as its ability to stimulate circulation, oxygenate the skin, and increase cell metabolism.

 

 

After all of this is when I introduce an essential oil blend that I carefully selected to benefit my clients’ individual beauty goals. With these oils I perform a relaxing massage over the face, neck, and décolleté. This service is finished off with a peel-off aromatic mask, packed with a blend of essential oils, fig, green tea, passion fruit, and aloe vera extracts, and 1nishing creams best adapted to the client’s beauty goals. The skin is left radiant, hydrated, and refreshed.

The body is then painted with a warmed creamy organic chocolate masque, that is loaded with nourishing ingredients such as coconut milk, cocoa,vitamins and CoQ10, a powerful antioxidant.

You are cocooned in warm blankets so the body can absorb the active ingredients of the mask.

Guinot Lift Summum

 

 

Lift Summum

Guest Blogger: Brianda Velarde

 

 

My favorite Guinot facial is our new LIFT SUMMUM treatment. It’s a great facial suited for lacklustre, dehydrated or ageing skin. The LIFT summum facial is an exclusive skincare method that provides global firming action and immediately attenuates signs of fatigue and aging in the face, neck and décolleté. After a 50 minute treatment the face is visibly younger-looking, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away & the skin on the face and décolleté is visibly firmer, plumper and lifted. This facial has 2 important key ingredients that give this facial a unique treatment.

 

Active Ingredients

 

During the treatment, the precious anti-aging active ingredients directly act on signs of aging :

 

Mahogany Bark: This ingredient helps stimulate collagen synthesis which improves skin elasticity, tone, and helps counteract slackening.

 

Alaria Esculenta: This seaweed extract helps to regenerate collagen and elastin fibers while fighting outside aggressors. Aids in the prevention of wrinkles. This is a seriously luxurious experience that leaves you with the skin to prove it.

 

 

 

Secrets Behind The Treatment

 

STEP ONE – Double Exfoliation: In the first phase of this treatment, papaya extract breaks dead cells away from the skin to facilitate exfoliation. Microparticles of cellulose remove dead skin cells mechanically through friction. Fruit acids accelerate shedding and boost cell renewal.

 

STEP TWO – Massage: The second phase includes a massage with mahogany bark extract to improve skin elasticity to help counteract slackening, while alaria esculenta seaweed extract helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

 

STEP THREE – Filler/Eraser: The third phase embeds hyaluronic acid spherical fillers into wrinkle grooves. The fillers then rehydrate and inflate to fill the wrinkles.

 

STEP FOUR – Firming Mask: The fourth and final phase utilizes dynalift and a biotechnological complex to smooth facial features and combat skin slackening by forming a mask that lifts.

 

Benefits

In one treatment:

  • Exfoliates and removes dead cells
  • Improves skin elasticity
  • Fills and erases wrinkles

Guinot HydraPeel Treatment

The Hydra Peeling Treatment

 

Over the past 50 years, Guinot’s mission has been to help women become more beautiful with exclusive treatments and innovative products.

 

The Hydra Peeling Treatment is an alternative to aesthetic medicine (without the pain or the hefty price tag). This treatment is a 45 minute facial with 3 steps to ensure and help with the process of ageing, pigmentation and brightening up the skins complexion. It exfoliates, resurfaces, moisturizes and renews the skin leaving it completely re-energized.

 

How it works:
The Hydra Peeling treatment is done in three steps: (1) Peeling, (2) Hydra Neuve Massage, (3) Mask Hydra Beaute.

STEP ONE – Peeling

STEP ONE – Peeling

As the first phase of this treatment, either the Hydra PH or the Hydrabrasion peeling treatment soaks in for 10 minutes, acting on brown spots and pigmentation, while simultaneously exfoliating.

  • The Hydra PH, designed for all skin types, is made with Biolactone to easily remove dead cells, and Phytic Acid (derived from rice grains) to peel deeply.
  • The Hydrabrasion, designed for sensitive skin, uses natural cellulose particles to eliminate dead cells (allowing new ones to emerge) and papaya extract to break connection between dead cells through enzymatic action.

STEP TWO – Massage

STEP TWO – Massage

 

The second phase, Hydra Neuve Massage, uses Dermostimulines to help stimulate cellular activity and re-balance PH in the skin.

 

 

STEP THREE – Mask

STEP THREE – Mask

The third phase, Mask Hydra Beaute, uses reed extract, poria cocos, and camelina oil to sooth and enhance protection of the skin, while restructuring the skin’s barrier.

 

 

 

Two Versions:

Unlike our other peeling facials (Beaute Neuve) two protocols are available with the Hydra Peeling treatment. Which gives the beauty therapist even greater control over the clients skin, making sure we choose the correct procedure for the skins condition.

HYDRA PEELING with HYDRA PH is a skin-friendly peeling treatment that is recommended for all skin types.

HYDRA PEELING with HYDRABRASION is recommended for sensitive skin.

How to Winterize Your Skin

 

How to Winterize Your Skin

 

Guest Blogger:
Brianda Velarde

 

The moment the seasons change from a calm, crisp fall day to the icy cold chill of winter, your skin suffers begins to pay the price. As the temperatures fall in the wintertime and the air becomes drier, your skin will suffer. In chilly weather the skin is less able to protect itself, which can lead to cracks in the outer layer of skin, loss of hydration, and ultimately, inflammation. Here are some tips on how to keep your skin in tip-top shape this season.

 

#1 Exfoliate Often
Exfoliation is key! It’s important to remove the dead skin on the surface to allow proper product penetration for best results. Scrub away those dead cells for new and radiant skin with Gommage Eclat Parfait. This amazing scrub is soothing and gentle (smells delightful too!). It’s active ingredients are Shea micro-particles to remove dead cells and sweet almond oil for protection of the new skin during the harsh cold weather.

 

#2 Use a gentle hydrating cleanser
Use a gentle cleanser that doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight and dry right after. My favorite cleanser is Hydra Fraîcheur Refreshing Cleansing Milk. This milky gentle cleanser removes impurities and make-up (including waterproof!). Its soothing ingredients aloe Vera and cucumber extract leave your skin calm from any redness and irritation from the cold dry air.

 

#3 Use toners that don’t have alcohol
I often have clients that come to me with the view that toners are drying. Toners are meant to balance the skins natural PH. If they are drying your skin it’s not the right toner for your skin type. I recommend a toner that does not have alcohol. My favorite toner is Hydra Fraîcheur Refreshing Toning Lotion. It’s active ingredients are ginseng and aloe Vera extract. It softens, alcohol-free, rebalances the skin and prepares it for the application of moisturizer or serum.

 

#4 Moisturize more!
Let’s face it, hot showers feel the best in the cold winter but they also strip the moisture right out of your skin. It’s important to apply a good moisturizer to help prevent and treat any skin dryness. My to go product is Crème Hydra Beaute. It provides continuous hydration and reduces feelings of tightness, flakiness and softens skin that lacks water.

 

#5 Always Wear Sunscreen 
Did you know? There’s harmful Sun rays hitting the earths surface during winter? Now, you might not get burned because UVB rays (burning rays) are not as strong, but UVA(aging rays) are just as strong strong in the winter as in the summer. My to go sunscreen is Sun Logic SPF 30. This is an advanced anti-aging sunscreen that prepares skin before sun exposure, during and it also repairs afterwards.

 

Introducing Crème Age Summum

Introducing Crème Age Summum

GUINOT PARIS is launching it’s most innovative anti-aging treatment cream, Crème Age Summum. It is the first of its kind targeting all signs of aging, while restoring the skin to its youthful firmness and radiance.

 

What makes Crème Age Summum different?

 

This cream restores the skin’s cellular activity, by incorporating four key ingredients. The first ingredient to focus on is ATP (Actinergie) which boots cell metabolism by storing and delivering energy essential to the vital functions of cells. It also contains the Cellular Life Complex that is found in our other top of the line products. This Complex stimulates cell renewal by providing elements essential to cell growth and longevity. Stabilized Vitamin C is also in Creme Age Summum, this helps to fight against free radicals and helps to prevent dark spots from appearing.

 

 

All of those above mentioned ingredients are amazing, but what really sets this cream apart is it’s Immune Complex.This ingredient protects Langerhans cell, the protectors of the skin’s immune system and youthful appearance. Think of the immune complex as an overcoat to protect your body against the winters cold. When this added protection is in place, the rest of the skin’s natural functions are improved because it doesn’t have to constantly fight to re-balance itself, putting this cream in a class of it’s own.

 

What do the Langerhans Cells do?

 

  • Defend The integrity of the dermal matrix
  • Protect elastic fibers (collagen and elastin)
  • Ensure good cell cohesion

 

 

Depending on your age and skin type depends on the use of the product. This cream is recommended as an anti-aging cream. It can be used by clients in their mid-30s and up, twice a year for a month at a time to help prevent and slow down the aging process. For clients in their 50s and up, this cream should be used on a daily basis.

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

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.
