Fountain of Youth
What is a Fountain of Youth Facial?
When it comes to looking younger, our skin and complexion really can make a difference in how we feel and the confidence we exude. The Fountain of Youth facial was designed to restore your skin’s glow and vibrance, taking years off in the process. As with any facial, the Fountain of Youth facial has multiple steps, each geared toward restoring skin health and bringing back the inherent luster of the skin.
However, this particular facial addresses not only the face and the fine lines and wrinkles that can occur there but also the decollete. The decollete is the area between the neck and upper chest. So when you’re wearing a lower cut short or dress, the decollete is the area that generally gets exposed. As we age, this region can become crepey and show fine lines. With the Fountain of Youth facial, the mask applied here will help smooth out the skin and make it look firmer.
The process involves masks developed to fight the sign of aging and improve the skin’s tone and texture. Not to mention, the treatment is entirely relaxing. In other words, it is excellent for your body and also for your soul.
How does a Fount of Youth facial work?
As is typical with most facials, you will first consult the aesthetician. At this point, you will go over any concerns you have, any skin issues you want to make a note of, and your desired results. The aesthetician will also assess your skin type to ensure that the Fountain of Youth facial is, in fact, the best option for you.
The actual facial process begins with a deep cleanse. This is to remove residual makeup, dirt, oils and make sure the face and decollete are a blank canvas ready to absorb the excellent nutrients and minerals that are to come.
There is generally an exfoliation as well. This even further cleanses the skin, helping to unclog pores and remove debris. In some cases, depending on what you discuss with the aesthetician, there can also be an extraction during which blackheads are removed using a unique tool.
The central part of the Fountain of Youth facials comes with the masks that are applied. The masks consist of a brightening complex hydro jelly and a PEPTI-nano. These are specifically used to make skin look younger while at the same time brightening otherwise dull complexions. As we age, skin can become worn and fade. That brightness gets restored during your Fountain of Youth facial.
The decollete area, which often can get neglected, is also addressed during your facial treatment. The crepey look and uneven pigment can make us look older than we are. With this facial, these things are pinpointed, and you look younger and will feel more confident.
What to do before your Fountain of Youth Facial?
Before your facial appointment, you want to make sure to wash your face. While you will go through a thorough cleanse during the actual facial, being prepared by washing your face and removing makeup is always a good idea. You also want to avoid applying any lotions or creams right before your treatment. The skin needs to be a “blank canvas” to absorb the nutrients and ingredients of the facial optimally.
You also want to be sure and dress comfortably. A facial, any facial, is meant to be a relaxing experience. This is a chance to slip away from the hustle and bustle of the world and take a deep breath. Make sure you are dressed comfortably so that you can truly enjoy your time at the spa.
What are the benefits of a Fountain of Youth Facial?
Most facials have some fantastic benefits, and the Fountain of Youth facial is undoubtedly no exception. Of course, the intent of this facial is to help you look and feel younger and thus take years off, but what else can you expect:
- Softer skin. The process involved and the masks used make skin so much softer and smoother to the touch.
- Plumper skin. As we age our skin loses collagen which causes it to sag. Plumping up your skin does help it to look years younger. The ingredients in this facial are designed to volumize otherwise sagging skin.
- Healthier skin. Skin health is so important at any age. With the Fountain of Youth facial, active ingredients help rejuvenate skin cells and stimulate collagen production, leading to overall healthier skin.
- Reduction of fine lines. The number one sign of aging is fine lines and wrinkles, of course. The people who get a fountain of youth facial notice a diminishing of fine lines, usually immediately. The key is to help create a smooth and lustrous surface.
What to do after your Fountain of Youth Facial?
How do you maintain the effects of your facial for longer? This is perhaps the number one question people have after receiving this type of facial treatment. The great news is that many of the products that a spa uses are for sale so that you can take them home and keep up your skincare regimen.
You can talk to your aesthetician about some tips and advice for maintaining the look of the facial and proactively addressing the signs of aging so that you can slow down the hands of time. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and address any concerns that you may have. They are there to help, after all.
If you are ready to look and feel younger, then a Fountain of Youth facial is the ideal treatment option for you. Do your research, read the reviews. Which spas/salons are people raving about in terms of these kinds of treatments? And then, when you do select a spa, make sure to consult with the aesthetician.
