SPOTLIGHT 28 @dayspamagazine • May 2019 (including glycolic, lactic and mandelic acids) and BHAs (salicylic acid) to eliminate the buildup of keratinized cells on the skin surface and allow for increased penetration of subsequent products. The peels also assist in diminishing age spots and fi ne lines. Additionally, we've had good results with the G.M. Collin Stem Cell Facial (75 min./$170) and the G.M. Collin Botinol treatment (75 min./$170), which contains Argireline, retinol and Myoxinol. Both services help improve skin tone and minimize signs of aging. How do you promote these targeted treatments? Barton-Schwartz: We offer clients a Clinical Care Consultation profi le/questionnaire, asking them about their skincare concerns and current at-home regimen. We then discuss the role that hormones play in the aging process, and work to determine their goals. Moreton: I fi nd that most women know what they want to improve as they face each phase of menopause; their struggle is fi guring out where to begin. I have fun on social media by using vintage photos to grab their attention and draw them into a discussion about their specifi c issues. The combination of comedy and education makes them feel comfortable asking the right questions. It's a great trust-building experience, as guests are put at ease while learning about each service's benefi ts and the importance of the supporting home care. Lavigne: Our estheticians conduct a personalized skin analysis for every client. It's critical that each individual be assessed and treated based on their particular skin needs. Our website showcases all of our treatments, and reception staff are trained to help guide clients to the options that best suit their concerns. u What ser vices and skin care do you recommend to these clients? Moreton: For immediate and dramatic results, I couple the Yon-Ka Paris Time Resist Facial with a Dermaplane (90 min./$200). Dermaplaning allows me to remove the initial layer of dry skin along with any extra hair they may be concerned about, promoting an instant glow and helping products penetrate more easily. I follow that with Yon-Ka Alpha-Exfoliateur, a resurfacing gel that combines AHAs and BHAs to exfoliate and hydrate, and then I perform a variety of relaxing and antiaging massage techniques enriched by layers of repairing and nourishing serums and creams. The treatment concludes with a marine collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) mask to restore hydration and leave skin plumped and radiant. For home care, I recommend the Yon-Ka Time Resist Duo, formulated to intensely hydrate, detox, smooth, calm and rebuild skin for a healthier, more youthful look. Barton-Schwartz: I opt for the Guinot Hydradermie Facial (60 min./$160) or Hydradermie Lift (60 min./$250), which help improve elasticity and hydration, and boost collagen to minimize and prevent wrinkles. Each client is treated with a blend of HA and plant extracts for their skin type, along with mild galvanic current and massage to plump up facial muscles. Their morning and evening skincare regimen must change during this time to address dryness in particular. I recommend Guinot Liftosome Lift Firming Face Serum, which tightens skin with seaweed, moisturizes with shea butter and aloe vera, and protects from free radicals with vitamin E. Lavigne: We always suggest G.M. Collin peels (a $25 add-on) before beginning any other targeted treatments, as they contain a variety of AHAs Osmosis StemFactor PCA Skin HydraLuxe Yon-Ka Paris Time Resist Day Cream Pure Fiji Anti-Aging Booster Dilo Oil purefi Phytomer Resubstance
