[ 38 ] • # dayspamagazine • november 2018 stop the clock! Anti Aging/Age Summum (60 min./$155) Salon L'Eau Washington, D.C. Designed to fi rm and brighten the skin, this fast-acting facial continues working after the guest leaves the treatment room. Following a thorough cleanse and exfoliating dermabrasion, Guinot's antiaging serum is mixed with pure vitamin C and gently applied. The esthetician then performs a 15-step massage using Guinot Modelage Age Summum to re-contour the face, followed by the application of a micro- lifting mask, which is left on for 10 minutes. Finally, a moisturizer, eye cream and SPF, based upon the client's skin type, are layered on. Antiaging All-Stars: "The Guinot Sérum Age Summum contains a blend of 56 active biological ingredients that promote cell production, while the vitamin C tightens and brightens the complexion," says Lai. The facial also relies on a combination of peptides, HA and collagen to plump the skin. Why Clients Love It: From dullness to uneven texture to fi ne lines, every aging concern is addressed with this multifaceted treatment. "After one session, the skin feels hydrated and fi rm," promises Lai. "The products are layered so that they will continue to penetrate long after the facial ends." G.M. Collin Botinol: Signature Anti-Aging Treatment (90 min./$168) Archbeauty Skin Care Salon & Boutique Middletown, Rhode Island Ideal for clients seeking an alternative (or complement) to fi llers or other cosmetic injections, this retinol- based facial diminishes fi ne lines and tones the skin. The treatment begins with a light steam and deep clean, followed by a clinical peel or enzyme exfoliant. Next, G.M. Collin Botinol Serum is applied to visible lines using a syringe. "We massage the serum in with gentle pinching movements to ensure that it penetrates," explains Archbeauty owner Sara Ross. After an invigorating face massage, an algae pellicle is placed over the skin and saturated with an activating lotion. The pellicle is then covered with a thermic sheet for 30 minutes, while the client receives a foot, leg and arm massage. Once the pellicle is removed, any remaining product is rubbed into the skin, followed by a corrective cream. Antiaging All-Stars: "The Botinol serum contains Argireline and Myoxinol, two peptides that work together to minimize muscle contractions and, in turn, the appearance of expression lines," notes Ross. Additionally, the combination of the algae pellicle and the HA in the Botinol Activating Lotion help nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Why Clients Love It: The treatment soothes, hydrates and tones without any downtime. Another bonus? "This facial can be used in conjunction with injections or fi llers to help the results last longer," points out Ross. LEFT: © GETTY IMAGES; RIGHT: COURTESY G.M. COLLIN
