Spa at Saguaro Puts the Blushing Next to Bride

Intraceuticals treatments give immediate rejuvenation, and beyond

Saguaro Hotel

Summer means weddings, and brides-to-be want nothing more than to be blushing.

The Spa at the Saguaro hotel in Palm Springs offers facial treatments using Intraceuticals, which has been a celebrity favorite for years and is great for the desert climate focusing on hydrating and replenishing skin.

But it’s also perfect for brides looking for everything to be perfect for that milestone in their life.

“Their skin will never appear blotchy or uneven, which can often happen after a more traditional facial experience,” said Theron Puccinelli, spa director at Saguaro. “There is no reaction or sensitivity, and the bride will achieve that instant overall radiant glow. The best part is that makeup can be applied immediately after without any negative effect."

The cozy spa on the hotel’s basement level continues the vibrant color palette and funky bohemian style used on the Saguaro's exterior and room interiors. In a quite contradictory fashion, all their facial services by Intraceuticals are cutting edge.

I had the Intraceuticals Rejuvenate treatment done, which focuses on the ultimate in skin hydration and provides immediate results in addition to several days later. The treatment focuses on three elements:

•    Oxygen is blown through a light silver hand-held device that channels age defying ingredients to the skin while it cools it. This felt slightly odd at first and then somewhat relaxing. (My best real life comparison would be a hose for inflating tire pressure hovering above your skin.)

•    A lightweight Hydralonic Acid is applied through the Rejuvenate Serum. This has active vitamins and antioxidants that hydrate the skin to provide firmness and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

•    Treatment Support Products are used to preserve the overall glow and radiance for your newfound face. They provide essential layers to lock in the skin nutrients for the longest-lasting results.

The treatment does not take long at all, and you don’t even have to disrobe. My makeup was removed and I lay on the treatment table.

My face felt more radiant after my Rejuvenate treatment and I noticed a difference in fine lines over the next week.

Additional treatments include Atoxelene and Anti-Aging Treatments, and either of these will be sure to punch a noticeable difference.

“I have had the Intraceuticals treatments on my service menu at other spas, and they are always extremely popular especially for clients that are traveling and want a quick overall uplift or simply want to try something new,” Puccinelli said.
