Willow Stream Spas and Spa Partner Kerstin Florian introduce highly-developed Lifting Facial treatments...think of this new approach to anti-aging as "exercise for the face."
Dante may have given vanity a bad name, but I digress — I want my skin to continue to look impossibly fresh as I age. More accurately, I want to reverse the aging process. And as my knowledge of how to anti-age continues to increase, so does my desire to achieve this through new technology in spa treatments. I am not talking about plastic surgery. In fact, I am a devout proponent of time - honored healing traditions — and now that beauty experts are converging natural methods with sophisticated technology, I can satisfy my desire for modern innovation while keeping true to my mantra: "[anti-]age gracefully."
The Willow Stream Spa (the award-winning signature spa brand of the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts) is teaming up with Spa partner Kerstin Florian International to introduce a series of age-management Lifting Facials utilizing European style spa products and authentic, been-around-for-centuries, therapy techniques. Visible results are immediate, the relaxing and sensorial experience palpable...perfect for a 21st century busy-body like me. Bye-bye aging, "see-ya-later" fine lines. Hello immediate lifting and firming, restored dermal density, and increased collagen growth.
"Willow Stream Spas are all about energy – living with abundant energy and offering energy-enhancing treatments that promote a healthy well-being,” says Anne McCall Wilson Vice President Spas, Fairmont Raffles Hotels International. “With our spa partner Kerstin Florian, we are able to address the aging process providing a natural, effective treatment to re-energize the skin."
This non-invasive, super-relaxing treatment utilizes three high-performance energy technologies in three phases.
- Red LED Spectrum Light: energizing and repairing cells, while promoting collagen production.
- Impulsed MicroCurrent: re-educating muscle tissue, redefining facial contour, and improving elasticity by stimulating DNA regeneration.
- Transdermal Delivery: infusing essential nutrients that penetrate deep into the gentle layers of the skin.
The "Correcting and Essentials Skincare Line" was created specifically to address a variety of sneaky factors that make us look less than radiant, including: sensitivity, uneven skin color, fine lines, loss of elasticity, hyperpigmentation, dull or dry patches, clogged or enlarged pores, blackheads and acne scarring. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and glycolic acid, Kerstin Florian products are designed to treat, repair and refine the skin from the very first use. Products used in every service are customized to suit your complexion.
Best results occur with a series of three, six, or nine treatments, but are noticeable after one visit.
