Everyone can enjoy the benefits of professional facial treatment, but not every treatment is for everyone, according to Northern Michigan’s Crystal Spa at Crystal Mountain. When considering which treatment to reserve, think about the outcome you are looking to achieve.

Need to address the visible signs of aging? Consider one of these two treatments.

The Age Corrective Facial dramatically improves the appearance of puffy, tired eyes, sagging skin, or even the deepest expression lines with firming and lifting hibiscus, botanical peptides, and a unique ice wine active. This treatment targets the visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and hyperpigmentation with the use of Eminence’s organic Arctic Berry Peptide Peel, natural retinol alternative, and Swiss green apple stem cells, proven to boost collagen and elastin by 25% in just six days. 

New this year is the Botanical Facelift Facial offers a deep dive into ageless results with unique algae extracts that target visible signs of aging. This facial uses the power of ultrasonic technology, plant peptides, and botanical collagen to target lines and wrinkles, resulting in rejuvenated, lifted, firmer-looking skin. Smart Collagen+ Complex is an intelligent collagen booster that uses advanced plant and algae ingredients to activate the body’s own production of collagen. The Botanical Facelift Facial features a potent combination of protective and corrective antioxidants applied to ultrasonic and microcurrent technologies to deliver deep hydration, gentle exfoliation, and age correction. The combination of botanical peptides and collagen naturally creates smoother skin and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Esthetician Gretchen Schnell assures, “With the combination of anti-aging products and ultrasonic technology, this facial gives a mini workout to the skin and muscles of the face resulting in a visibly firmer, smoother complexion.”

Looking to improve the overall tone of your skin? A deeply hydrating facial is the answer.

This facial does for your face what a massage does for your body” says Heather Ressler, Crystal Spa Services Manager

Detox for your skin? Sometimes a little heat is what’s best.

Our Organic Oxygen Facial will oxygenate and detoxify the skin. This treatment offers the restorative powers of Snow Mushroom, Birch Water, and Reishi Mushroom with this luxurious treatment for the face, neck & décolleté. A stimulating Eminence peel that has a ‘heating effect’ to drastically increase circulation, reducing puffiness, toxins & fluid retention is combined with the latest skin technology from Intraceuticals to visibly lift, tighten and reduce fine lines and wrinkles using a combination of Hyaluronic layering. Cooling, calming, pressurized oxygen delivery increases the absorption of the Intraceuticals serum and naturally improves your skin’s moisture levels. Skin is instantly smooth, with better volume and increased firmness.

Spa Manager Laurie Peet offers, “This facial produces significant heat which increases circulation so it is not recommended for those with very sensitive skin. However, because of the intensity of the detoxifying products combined with state-of-the-art technology of hyaluronic acid infusion, it’s a fabulous facial to indulge in the week of a special occasion.  (Think reunions or weddings—everyone will want to know your secret to looking so young and refreshed!) Esthetician Katarina Six adds, “This is my favorite facial to give. It incorporates detoxification, intense hydration, and facial massage manipulation for dramatic results.  Skin will be clearly plumped, glowing, and hydrated.”

Our Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial is a remarkably gentle and non-invasive treatment using the latest skin technology to visibly lift, tighten and reduce fine lines and wrinkles using a combination of Hyaluronic layering. Cooling, calming, pressurized oxygen delivery increases absorption of the Intraceuticals serum and naturally improves your skin’s moisture levels, while vitamins and antioxidants protect and defend to leave your skin instantly smooth, with better volume and increased firmness. Using the Intraceuticals brand, this facial offers skin quenching products that provide intense hydrations. Skin is brightened and rejuvenated with vitamins and antioxidants for dramatic results.
