SOTHYS HOMME TREATMENTCreated for men, this $75, 50-minute treatment begins with an upper back, neck, and shoulder massage for five minutes using Relaxing Modeling Oil by Sothys Paris. Next, Tonic Hair Lotion is applied to the hair and scalp, and a five-minute scalp massage follows. Finally, a facial (with extractions) is performed using Detoxifying Active Cleanser, Detoxifying Soft Peeling, Age-Defying Modeling Cream, Peel-off Mask, Hydrating Active Care, and Age Defying Active Care. The hair tonic—which includes such ingredients as apple vinegar, biotine, d-panthenol, and ginseng—is left on the hair throughout the facial, leaving the scalp refreshed and healthy and the hair soft, radiant, and well-protected.

DERMALOGICA'S REVITALIZING EYE RESCUEThis 20-minute, $35 treatment begins with a Face Mapping consultation to obtain the client's skincare history and profile. Next, makeup is removed with Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover. Using the fingertips, a thin layer of Bio Peel (or a smooth paste of Daily Microfoliant mixed with warm water) is applied around the eye area. This is left on for five minutes, removed, and followed by the application of O2 Uptake Serum to the eye area. Pressure-point and drainage massage is given for five minutes. Iontophoresis (passing a small electric current through the skin) may be performed around the eye area for two to three minutes with an electrode designed for a smaller area (i.e., a ball electrode). If this is done, Colloidal Masque Base may be mixed with O2 Uptake Serum to make an ionizable eye gel. The remainder of the Colloidal Masque Base may be left on the skin in a very thin layer and covered with two dampened eye gauzes to protect the eyebrows. Three scoops of Clinical Colloidal Oatmeal are then mixed with water to form a paste-like consistency and spread with a spatula over the gauze-covered eye area. It is left on the skin for 10 minutes. The oatmeal application is taken off and the residue removed with a cool steamed towel. The treatment is completed with an application of Multivitamin Power Firm.

BODY SLIMMINGGuinot offers a 60-minute slimming treatment that begins with an exfoliation using Lotion Starter Minceur. Next, essential oils are applied over the entire body, followed by a 20-minute body wrap, which includes a slimming red clay masque. The treatment concludes with an application of Absolue Minceur, a slimming body gel. There's also a firming treatment available that includes a total-body application of Huille Tonifiante Relaxante. A firming green clay masque, with minerals to soften the skin and stimulate cell metabolism, is then applied before the client is cocooned in a layer of blankets for approximately 20 minutes. A full-body application of Nutrizone Lift or Longue Vie Body Cream ends the treatment.
