Are you considering booking an appointment for a high-tech facial? You are not alone. Transformative treatments using cutting-edge technology promise long-term skin health. And spas are tempting with packages to regenerate, retexturize, and revitalize skin without the challenges associated with injectables and fillers. If you are intrigued by the possibilities, read on as we explore some of the most popular high-tech facial treatments available for your next spa visit.
If you live in New York City, or your travels are taking you there, you may want to book an appointment with Tracie Martyn. Celebrities swear by the spa’s signature high-tech facial packages to get ready for their close-ups. InStyle raves about their cutting-edge techniques, including “retexturizing microdermabrasion delivered via a diamond-tipped handpiece and her trademarked Beyond Microcurrent therapy, which revs production of adenosine triphosphate, an energy storing molecule that speeds healing and collagen production.” Finish the procedures with a “peptide-infused oxygen mist to lift.” You’ll see why Rihanna calls Tracie Martyn “the best.”
Hydration can significantly affect the look and feel of your skin. No wonder high-tech hydrafacials are grabbing attention. Dr. Purivsha Patel, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare, explains to Martha Stewart Living: “‘A [hydrafacial] is composed of exfoliation using a dermabrasion wand, cleansing using a water and suction wand, and treatment by delivering actives via serums directly onto the new skin beneath to increase penetration and absorption.’” The process can yield beautifully radiant skin that can last up to three weeks, making it a tempting option for anyone who wants to feel refreshed before a big event.
If you have particularly sensitive skin, you’ll want to be sure that your spa’s technicians have expertise in performing this unique dermabrasion to avoid irritating the skin excessively. Are you near Atlanta? TripSavvy confides that The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta is one of the few spas in the Atlanta area that offers this high-tech procedure.
Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial
Upscale accommodations, a stunning locale, and an undeniably impressive spa are all aspects of Willow Lodge that keep guests returning year after year. TripSavvy adores this escape to “Woodinville’s wine country just 25 minutes from Seattle….” While this luxury resort is near tempting local wineries, it is the Willow Lodge spa that prompted the Magazine to name it among the best in Washington State. Their comprehensive menu of services combines an impressive list of traditional and high-tech treatments, including hydrafacials and intraceuticals oxygen facials. The Spa reveals: “[An intraceuticals oxygen facial] is the only treatment that uses oxygen under pressure to deliver a special serum of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, essential vitamins, botanicals, antioxidants and peptides to the skin.” The process is said to promote “natural collagen and elastin production to improve skin texture and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles” after just one treatment.
Enhanced LED Facial
Because no two people have precisely the same needs, the scope of the Enhanced LED Facial, a signature treatment at Joanna Czech in Dallas and NYC, is fully customized and determined on the day of your visit. It’s an approach that is adored by clients and InStyle editors alike. The spa confides: “The treatment begins with sculpting and lifting manual massage, followed by exfoliation, extractions if necessary, and a combination of targeted serums chosen for your skin’s needs on that day. Afterwards, your esthetician will incorporate a combination of modalities, which may include various forms of microcurrent, ultrasound, cryotherapy, oxygen infusion, radio frequency, serums and/or masks.” This high-tech facial highlights an intriguing and targeted strategy for stimulating elastin and collagen. All sessions are completed with “an LED light infused with negative ions,” according to InStyle, with the color of the light determined by the client’s needs; “red for firming, yellow for pigmentation.”
Vitamin Sound Waves
If traditional peels aren’t delivering the desired results, Jordana Mattioli may have the solution. InStyle cheers that Mattioli has created a custom high-tech facial that truly wows. The Magazine reports: “Mattioli’s custom-tailored The Facial … may include the first-of-its-kind Ionzyme DF machine, which uses electrical currents and sound waves to transport large doses of vitamins into the skin, and CoolPeel from Environ, which can stay on the skin longer than traditional peels.” And if you have problem skin, the spa is also making waves using South Korea’s PlaSon device to promote clearer skin within just a few days.
Black Diamond Facials
The Spa at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, California, has earned its reputation for creating a decadent experience while producing enviable results. TripSavvy raves: “Everything in the spa is luxurious from the white quartz crystal steam room’s heated benches and silky sheets to the dark chocolate snacks.” High-tech facial procedures abound; “Signature treatments including Celestial Black Diamond Non-Surgical Face Lifts and Cryotherapy Sports Massages utilize results-driven products and cutting edge tech including LED therapy, [Hydrafacial], and 111SKIN—a skincare system developed by a renowned cosmetic surgeon.”
Among the spa’s irresistible offerings is the Signature Facial by Beverly Wilshire. This 90-minute session begins at $995 and includes several high-tech treatments. You’ll start with the Hydrafacial and enjoy a microcurrent session to lift and firm while experiencing “galvanic technology [which] propels high-potent actives deep into the skin, minimizing lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and sensitivity,” according to the spa. Next, an oxygen infusion will help to restore elasticity, rebalance the skin, and repair damage before the final Knesko Luxury Diamond face, neck, and décolleté mask is applied. And voila – you are red carpet ready!
