T h e S p a a t F o u r S e a s o n s H o t e l B a l t i m o r e T h e S p a & S a l o n a t A R I A [ 26 ] • # dayspamagazine • june 2018 The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore Baltimore Service savvy: The Body Brightening Glow Experience (80 min./$235 Mon.- Fri., $245 Sat.-Sun.) utilizes exfoliating bamboo, fruit enzymes and acids, and stimulating body-buffi ng techniques to brighten the skin. Therapists then massage organic ginger oil blended with a fi rming shea butter crème and nutrient-rich algae onto the body, using long, relaxing strokes with a focus on the neck, back and shoulders. Finally, the application of a collagen face mask completes the service. Upping the ante: Products from the Kerstin Florian Correcting line help fi ght pigmentation and lighten the skin, and the fi nishing mask is even specially shipped from Knesko with Reiki-instilled energy. Seasonal promotions also attract clients, and one staff member personally makes custom scents to incorporate into treatments and sell in the retail space. The spa regularly provides redeemable incentives to attendees at community events, too. Client cachet: "Guests love that this service tends to the entire body, and that they see immediate results while feeling youthful and supple," notes spa director Vanesa Cox-Tristani. "Then, during the summer we allow exclusive access to our rooftop pool from Monday through Thursday, excluding certain blackout dates and holidays, with a purchase of this treatment (or any off ering that costs $225 or more)." head-to-toe glow TOP: COURTESY MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL; BOTTOM: COURTESY FOUR SEASONS HOTEL BALTIMORE The Spa &Salon at ARIA Las Vegas Service savvy: The Fresh Hydration Wrap (50 min./$180 Mon.-Thu., $190 Fri.-Sun.) includes the Pevonia De-Aging Saltmousse Mango-Passion Fruit Scrub, which uses fi ne- milled French sea salt to gently exfoliate the body from neck to toe. Therapists use warm water to dissolve the salt, creating a non-greasy, easily applied mousse that emits negative ions. Following a private shower, the client receives an antiaging body balm application, in which mango, shea butter, papaya, pineapple, collagen, elastin and retinol help fi rm, tone, brighten and moisturize. Upping the ante: The service is available as an à la carte option but is even more popular as part of the spa's romantic couples' package, during which duos receive a sampling of face and body experiences in private suites. Clients also love pairing the unique exfoliation treatment with a facial for head-to-toe rejuvenation. They can sign up for a rewards program to earn points for their spa spending, which can be redeemed for benefi ts like free hotel rooms, food and beverages, or future spa treatments. Client cachet: Lead esthetician Julia Shintaku says the service is referred to as a facial for the body. "The feel and scent is enjoyed by both men and women, because the Saltmousse smells clean and fruity but not perfumed—and the texture leaves a velvety-smooth fi nish without feeling oily," she adds.
