The Spa at Four Seasons Introduces Intraceuticals Oxygen Facials
Sure, you could travel all over the world in search of serious skincare, but if you live in Seattle you're lucky enough to have The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel in your own backyard. In addition to being the only spa in the Northwest that offers the Ultra Facial, a treatment that uses micro-current technology and high frequency to non-surgically tone and tighten the skin, the 6,000 square foot spa is now unveiling a new treatment that carefully combines beauty and science in order to achieve amazing anti-aging results. There's a reason celebrities like J.Lo and Madonna love this stuff! Even Victoria Beckham and Rachel Zoe give Intraceuticals facials "glowing" endorsements.
Intraceuticals+ Boosters, a skincare collection designed to completely customize the results of the hyaluronic acid packed Pure Oxygen Facial treatment, made its debut at the Four Seasons Spa last week. The system uses oxygen under pressure to calm the skin and help increase product absorption for maximum results. In just one treatment clients in search of instant gratification can achieve plump, hydrated skin that is red-carpet ready. That alone is precisely why celebrity make-up artists like Gina Brooke, who had done treatments for stars like Madonna and Katy Perry, fell in love with it. She calls it her "cut to the chase" technique when she needs serious results super quickly. She uses the treatment when her celeb clients are getting ready for a photoshoot or special appearance. The results are cumulative and build over time, so clients often see the best results when doing the treatments in a series of 6, spaced one week apart.
If you're into skincare treatments that can help turn back the hands of time, or simply want to delay the gradual signs of aging, this treatment is definitely for you. There are 4 Intraceuticals+ Booster formulations available to address specific skincare concerns including Antioxidant+ to help neutralize free radicals, Collagen+ to visibly lift and tone, Vitamin C+3 to help improve hyperpigmentation, and Vitamin A+ which is great for blemish-prone skin. Unlike typical topicals, these concentrated formulations are delivered to the skin with Intraceuticals’ proprietary hyaluronic technology for instant results you can see and feel. Hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the human body, keeps the skin hydrated, but it decreases with age which is why these treatments are so great, they can provide the skin with a boost of hyaluronic acid to replenish the skin and provide immediate results.
Guests who experience the Oxygen Facial continue to achieve results at home by using the Intraceuticals product line including the Daily Serum formulated with aloe vera to revive the skin, the Hydration Gel to replenish the skin, followed by the Moisture Binding Cream which acts as a final layer to help protect the skin. The products were designed to be used in a specific order determined by each product’s molecular weight in order to truly transform the skin. Without getting too science-y, the technology is pretty unique and there’s a reason it works. In the week or so that I’ve been using the product series I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin’s hydration level. I also love that I can mix a Booster of my choice into the Daily Serum depending on my specific skincare concerns. In the morning, I like to use the Antioxidant booster and in the evening I like the Vitamin A booster so that it can work its magic overnight.
Packages start at $1500 for a series of 6 treatments. It’s not cheap, but neither is a facelift. So if you’ve got anti-aging on your mind, if a special event is in your future, or if you just want to pamper yourself, the Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial at The Spa at Four Seasons just might be for you.
