How The Estheticians Do It: Micro-currents

About Joanna!

~

Does your skincare regimen currently include micro-current? If not, then I recommend that it should.

A professional micro-current machine is one of my most used skincare tools, both in the treatment room and at home. My clients are always amazed at the results.

Treating the skin with micro-current is like giving it new energy and life – think extreme yoga for your face. It’s a natural way to treat the signs of aging and promote active skin regeneration for truly lasting results, not to mention the immediate lifting effect.

If you’ve experienced our signature Bio-Lift Facial, you know what I’m talking about.

Luckily, there’s a way to get the benefits of this technology at home with two of my favorite personal micro-current devices available at Rescue Spa.

Let’s start with:

The ReFa CARAT

The cutting-edge technology of the ReFa CARAT beauty roller uses a built-in solar panel to generate a mild electric current that’s similar to what our body produces naturally. Its platinum-coated design and the smooth gliding motion is a testament to fine Japanese craftsmanship and quality.

The award-winning ReFa CARAT is available in different sizes to fit the face, body and delicate eye area. My clients love the ReFa CARAT S. It’s the brand’s smallest device and fits perfectly around eyes, lips and between the brows.

How to use the ReFa CARAT?

You have the option to use the device as is, over makeup, or with your favorite serums. Simply roll the device back and forth, following the direction of the muscle and allow the gentle current to work its magic. You’ll notice an immediate glow from increased circulation and drainage of lymphatic fluids.

Try it with a hyaluronic-acid based serum for maximum hydration and plumping such as Valmont Moisturizing Booster or Biologique Recherche Serum Yall-O2.

Another great advantage of the ReFa CARAT is its portability, making it a perfect little companion on your travels. You can even keep one at your desk for a quick and easy “lunchtime lift.” And since it captures solar or artificial light, it’ll never lose its charge. (ReFa CARAT is available for purchase in spa or by telephone at 215-772-2766 extension #3.)

Next up:

The NuFace Trinity Pro Facial Trainer

You’ve probably seen the NuFace device before, but this Pro version is as close to professional strength micro-current as you can get at home, and it requires only five minutes a day for a full facial workout. The stimulating current works by passively exercising the muscle to lift, tone and tighten, while oxygenating the skin and increasing circulation.

How to use the NuFace Trinity Pro?

The NuFace must be used with a conducting medium such as a gel or water-based serum.

STEP 1: Apply your gel. I recommend the NuFace 24K Gold Primer. It contains gold particles with either a brightening or firming complex to boost skin’s overall radiance and elasticity.

Tip: For sensitive or acne-prone skin, I’d go with something gentler such us the Santa Maria Novella Aloe Gel Viso Corpo as a substitute. It will calm, soothe and help to reduce inflammation.

STEP 2: Turn on the device and hold it for a few seconds, focusing on individual muscle groups. You’ll hear a “beep” when it’s time to move to another area.

Tip: Use oxygenating water to re-wet the skin and keep the gel from drying out. I love Biologique Recherche L’Eauxygenante spray for a dose of oxygen and powerful antioxidants.

STEP 3: Remove gel and apply your treatment products.

Although the NuFace is FDA cleared for facial toning, it may also help reduce breakouts due to electric current’s natural anti-bacterial properties. I generally see an immediate reduction in redness and swelling when I use it on problem areas.

Almost anyone can benefit from micro-current and while nothing comes close to the results of a professional Bio-Lift facial, a micro-current device such as the NuFace Pro or ReFa CARAT can help you maintain those fabulous results longer.

So schedule a Bio-Lift facial and don’t forget to give your skin a regular dose of micro-current at home.

Once you try it, I promise you’ll be hooked!

Bar soaps get love from millennials raised on the liquid stuff

“Due to client demand, Rescue Spa, a luxury day spa in Center City, now carries three-dozen bar soaps, up from just six kinds it sold three years ago. Older clients who have used commercial bar soaps for years appreciate the skin-softening benefits of natural soaps, said Kim Zimmerman, Rescue Spa’s e-commerce and marketing director. “And millennials appreciate the eco-conscious packaging, that they’re organic, and Korean beauty products are all the rage,” she said, noting that the best-sellers are natural organic Gounjae soaps selling for $14 to $19 and wrapped in traditional Korean paper called hanji.  And Morihata’s black charcoal soap, $32 for 3.8 ounces, is popular among teenage boys (bought by their mothers) for bacne (acne on the back), she said.”

Calling All Blondes!


 

Sunny summer days making your hair feel brassy and dry? It’s ok, you’re not alone. Salt water, chlorine and sun take its toll on everyone’s hair, but blondes can feel even more taxed when your color starts to turn yellow.

To combat those undesirable hues, I recommend Davines Alchemic Shampooand Conditioner formulated for blonde and silver hair. The strong purple pigments will neutralize brassy tones and restore vibrancy in between color services. Start with using the shampoo and conditioner once a week, increasing frequency as necessary. If your hair is very porous, you may find that the conditioner, paired with your favorite color conserving shampoo, may be enough to do the trick! Try leaving the conditioner on for 3 to 5 minutes for the full benefits.

Follow with a moisturizing leave-in (like Davines Oi All In One Milk) to tame, smooth and lock in shine.

Hair Stylist,

Liz Szot

Colour conditioner suggested for platinum, silver, and white hair.

NEW at RESCUE! Baxter Of California

A-Bunch-Of-Good-Looking-Goodies-From-Baxter-Of-California-1BAXTER OF CALIFORNIA
GROOMING GENERATIONS OF GENTLEMEN.

DEDICATED TO ELEVATING THE CRAFT OF MEN’S GROOMING SINCE 1965.
Baxter of California is one of the original men’s grooming brands created by Baxter Finley in 1965. Cutting edge for its time, it started with a single product: Super Shape, a men’s skin conditioner that offered protection from the sun and sea. This gender-specific breakthrough was no gimmick.

Suddenly, guys got grooming. In the years since then, Baxter of California pioneered a comprehensive range of products tailored to a man’s needs. Years of research by our experts proved that all skin is not created equal.

Our approach is science plus nature, built from the ground up in California. We may be old school in concept, but we’re high-tech in practice.

Bottom line: Finley’s dry skin began a revolution. Baxter’s legacy meets advanced research: this is the evolution of men’s grooming.
