Fountain of Youth Facial
Who wouldn’t want to look younger without going “under the knife?” When I learned about a new facial offered by Alma Holistic that improves skin’s collagen, firming and toning in less than two hours, I was intrigued. The spa-like environment at Alma Holistic invites relaxation with a cool island blue and green color scheme and fresh flowers. The treatment room is welcoming and comfortable with paintings of South American landscapes.
The microcurrent facial rejuvenation system uses gentle electrical stimulation to trigger the body’s natural enhancement chemicals at both the cellular and muscular levels. The non-surgical, non-invasive (painless) cosmetic technique improves the health and appearance of your face. The procedure involves several phases and is said to increase oxygen to the skin cells, stimulate lymphatic drainage, boost the skin’s collagen production and re-train sagging muscles, providing lift.
During the facial, Alma patiently explains what is happening to your skin. For the first treatment she completes all phases on one side of the face so that you can actually see the difference – remarkably, there is one. Never fear, she finishes the other side too, so that your face will match. Alma concludes the treatment with a neck and shoulder massage using essential oils, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and tingly all over.
During the treatment, it is normal to experience a tingling sensation from the microcurrent, which can be increased or decreased depending on individual tolerance. To really see improvement it’s best to commit to a series of six to 10 treatments. To capture the difference, Alma takes a “before” photo to compare with progress from additional treatments.
Alma Holistic promotes a new model for health and wellness – that true beauty comes from within. Health depends on the body’s ability to digest nutrients and eliminate toxins. The more efficiently the body performs these functions, the healthier it will be. Their goal is to create inner and outer balance. By identifying and reducing internal body toxins, external beauty increases.
Alma is developing her own organic skin-care line that will be available soon to complement her skin care treatments. She is happy to work with clients to develop a program that can include a skin-care regimen and a healthier lifestyle. To experience your own fountain of youth, schedule an appointment at Alma Holistic.
