30 DAYSPA | NOVEMBER 2014 SPOTLIGHT ON... Single-serve Skin Care Spa pros share why they've made these solo superstars part of their regimen. By Rachel Kossman Julia Shintaku, lead esthetician at The Spa & Salon at ARIA in Las Vegas: We use several single-serve items in our treatments, but the most popular are Timeless By Pevonia's Age-Defying Collagen Ampoules for their hydrating properties. Las Vegas is so dry, everyone experiences some form of dehydration while they're here. As a professional, I appreciate the single-serve packaging because it means the product doesn't get over-used. The ampoules cut down on our back-end costs, but they also ensure that the product is always at its freshest. Our clients love that we can use half of the collagen serum in the treatment room, recap the rubber tube, then send the other half home with them. Sara Imberman, store manager at Jurlique in Santa Monica, California: We consistently use the brightening and fi rming treatment masks at our spa— they're offered as an upgrade ($15) to any facial ser- vice. Clients love that results from the mask last several days, and that their skin is hydrated and plumper while lines are also diminished. The masks can be used as a treatment over a several-week period, or just once for a special event. I've also had clients tell me they use the paper masks on the airplane to hydrate, they're so easy to apply! Carol O'Neil, owner at Carriage House Skin Care in Austin, Texas: We offer a Collagen Infusion Therapy Facial ($200) using SAIAN's Hyaluronic Acid Ampoules and Pure Collagen Masks. The ampoules are great for preventing moisture depletion during winter and after intensive dehydrating services such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser skin rejuvenation and acne treatments. We also offer the ampoules as an add-on ($35) to any facial. Each one is two or three doses, so I can use some product during the treatment, then send clients home with the remainder. I have them plug the tube with a cotton swab and put it in the fridge, and it will last for up to a week. My clients also love the am- poules because they can travel with them—if they have an upcoming event, they can keep a dose in their purse to moisturize and plump up their skin! One-hit Wonders Timeless By Pevonia Age-Defying Collagen Ampoules A blend of caviar, marine collagen and anti-aging extracts tightens, smooths wrinkles and hydrates skin. 800.PEVONIA, SAIAN Hyaluronic Acid Ampoules These capsules are packed with a topical wrinkle fi ller that acts as a non-comedogenic hydrating agent and anti-infl ammatory. 800.291.1130, Malibu C Transparent-C Masque An antioxidant treatment that normalizes skin texture, evens pigmentation and reverses visible signs of aging. 800.622.7332, Jurlique Purely Age- Defying Firming Treatment Mask This self-adhesive sheet utilizes kudzu root, beech tree and willow bark extracts to target anti-aging concerns. 800.854.1110, Sanítas Brightening Peel Pads A triple threat of salicylic acid, witch hazel and aloe vera removes bacteria, tightens pores and softens skin. 888.855.8425,
