Microcurrents to the Rescue!

When surgery isn’t an option for you , but loose skin is making you look older than you are… what should you do ? Microcurrent therapy is the most popular option. It is a type of non-surgical facelift which uses electricity to accelerate the production of collagen by improving facial and neck muscle tone. It also lifts the jowls and eyebrows. Microcurrent therapy produces the best results when followed by a home regimen that can produce effects of a facelift .

Some creams and serums also available on the market include Cellective Celllift serum with high performance active ingredients to help prevent facial micro-contraction (Botox like effects). Follow this serum with Cellective celllift cream or it also comes in a lighter version. These creams restore volume to the skin and correct cutaneous sagging jowls .

Let’s not forget about our eyes. For all signs of gravity and droopy eyelids try Valmont Serum Majestueux Vox Yeux prior to using any Valmont eye cream.

Microcurrent facials and these products are available at Rescue Spa.

Amazing Products You’ve Never Heard Of
*And if you have: We’re calling you next time. – Allure

Sure you can spell “exfoliation” — in Korean. You can cite the RPM of the Dyson hair-dryer. And when someone says she likes her Fetish with a touch of Orgasm? You know the statement is entirely PG. But friends, you do not know it all. And we’re about to prove it. Our editors convinced beauty-world icons to tell us the products that they didn’t want to tell us about. Their secret weapons. Their holy grails. We guarantee you’ve never used these products before* — and now you’ll never stop.
Refa S Carat Roller
Recommended By: Val Garland, Makeup Artist
“If a makeup rule exists, Garland is backstage breaking it. Lipstick gets smudged. Eyeliner gets blurry. And flowers are more likely to end up on the face than in the hair. But underneath all the creativity, Garland’s real gift is perfecting skin – which is where this roller (that’s it above) comes in. “I plunge it into ice or stick it in the fridge, and then just go up and down on the face,” she says. “It feels like a facial, and it’s a great way to depuff the skin — especially around the eyes. When I’m working on a celebrity or a nervous client, it’s also a great way of making them feel relaxed. “

 

NEW YEAR Specials: We could all use a reset after the holiday over indulgence, couldn’t we?

NewYear
SLIM + DETOX WRAP:
Kickoff the New Year with healthy detoxification, you’ll literally feel like you’ve lost a few inches! An invigorating scrub boost circulation, followed by natural sea mud packed with minerals and anti-oxidants to detoxify and purify the skin. You will feel relaxed and your skin firmer and more toned. 60 min – $125

DIY BODY:
Take a “French” Biologique Recherche approach to detoxification and slimming. Shower using the P50 Gommage scrub with the BR Body Glove, followed by Anti-C Oil. It goes on right after stepping out of the shower while the skin is still damp. Lock in the moisture with Crème Reparatrice on areas of the body that need firming and to slim and smooth away cellulite.

Taking care of your hands is also crucial since they’re exposed to the harsh elements.  Ultimate Mani/Pedi tends to cuticles, skin, nails, exfoliating and hydrating, extra hydration with a hand and foot mask overnight followed by hand cream you can wear cotton gloves for extra penetration.  We suggest that clients carry hand cream with you in your handbag, we like Rich Girl since it has SPF and if you’re an obsessive hand washer Swedish Sea Salt is a nice but inexpensive option.

FULL SPECTRUM FACIAL:
Take a full spectrum approach to skincare and allow us to focus on what works.  First we start with a deep cleansing; detoxifies and prepares the skin for treatment, followed by microdermabrasion; treats acne scars, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. Next a mild exfoliating peel; resurfaces and encourages regeneration. Microcurrents; for immediate lifting, firming, and toning.  LED light therapy; known for its ability to rejuvenate skin, treat acne, increase microcirculation, and enhance collagen & elastin production.  90 min – $200

DIY FACE: Focus on products that really deliver.  The Essentials: We believe that clients should take the same approach body, hands, and feet with the same care and attention they give to their faces.

Cleansing; a milky cleanser respects the epidermis and it works on anyone, for all skin types. You will never feel dry or stripped.

Exfoliation; If you can only get one product P50 1970 is the one! It is balancing, toning, hydrating, etc. like a facial in a bottle.  There is a reason this is a cult favorite. Fruit Acid Overnight cream, is like an overnight peel in the most natural gentle fruit acids.  Extremely brightening, evens out skin tone, rehydrates, this is the time of the year to do this renews.  In conjunction with retinol twice a week you can skip the dermatologist appointment for the aggressive peels.  Vitamin C; is TLC for the skin.  Just like your immune system can benefit from Vitamin C this time of year so can your skin! C-Quence, C-Boost and Vitamin C Cream from Institut Esthederm.

A Rich Moisturizer like  Valmont’s Prime Regenera II is the richest cream there is.  If you can only get one winter moisturizer… this does it all. You can apply on any dry patches or the entire face.

 

PSA: This Is Not a Sex Toy

It’s a de-puffing, tightening, turkey-neck-fixing face roller — and it works.
 
Really. It’s a platinum-coated face and body roller, made in Japan, obsessed over in Korea and now carried in Philly. The premise: A solar panel on the handle converts light into a micro-current, one that emulates the natural low-level electrical frequency already in our bodies (which weakens as we age). Rolling the ReFa Carat over your face and body—backs of knees, cheekbones, forehead, jaw line, chest, any spot that sags, dulls or bloats—stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage and, well, just feels good. In short, it’s a literal recharge of the skin. The end result? You won’t feel a buzz or notice Botox levels of improvement, but your skin will look tighter, tauter, de-puffed, glow-y and downright refreshed. So, yes, it’ll raise eyebrows. But really, that’s the whole point.
