1. Perform hand treatment: Using 1 tsp of Radiance Skin Polish, exfoliate each hand and wrist. Remove with warm Aroma Compress and blot hands dry. Take out Renewal Hand Treatment Mask from hot towel cabi; brush warm mask on back of one hand and cuticles. Wrap in plastic liner. Repeat for other hand. Place both hands in warm mitts and gently lay clients’ hands down.

4. Reveal Treatment Peel application: Using a large soft cotton swab, gently apply Reveal Treatment Peel from the outer perimeter of the face towards the center, applying to cheeks and nose area last.

5. While Reveal Treatment is on skin, stay with client to ensure she’s comfortable and skin does not become very red. Remove peel with cool water using soft cotton pads. Afterward, using a dime-size quantity of Recovery Cleanser, thoroughly cleanse skin. Cleanse skin a second time, again using a dime-size quantity of Recovery Cleanser, asking client if there is any discomfort, itching or burning. Blot skin dry with tissue.

The legendary Hotel Valley Ho, known as the playground of the rich and famous upon its opening in 1956, was the place to see and be seen in Scottsdale, Arizona. With a renovation and expansion in 2005, the hotel retained the flavor of its original mid-century “Southwestern” architecture that made it iconic while adding modern conveniences, views of Camelback Mountain and a state-of-the-art spa. Today, the hotel’s amenities are a main draw for visitors from all over the world.

Of course, the spa is a can’t-miss destination: The VH Spa (the VH here stands for “Vitality + Health”), has been named among the top 10 spas in the country by Travel & Leisure magazine and boasts an outdoor deck for relaxing between services, a spa boutique and True facial treatments.

Created by estheticians, aromatherapists and other wellness experts, True treatments are designed for dramatic results and a meaningful experience. With the super-antioxidant idebenone as an ingredient, clients will be happy with what they see. An anti-inflammatory, wrinkle smoother and skin brightener, idebenone provides benefits without redness or reactions. After a six-week series of treatments, studies have shown a 26-percent reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, 38-percent improvement in skin tone, and a 20-percent reduction in facial redness.

As for the experience? This treatment pulls out all the stops. More than a facial, it includes a client welcome (see sidebar), renewing hand treatment (step 1), a firming R&R eye treatment (step 6), and a relaxing aroma massage (step 7). With luxury like this, who needs a vacation?

Snapshot: Reveal the face that looks as young as you feel with this superior clinical peel.

This helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and reduces pore size and breakouts. You’ll emerge bright, smooth, radiant and relaxed.

Client Preparation and Welcome

â–º Invite client to lie down on her back on facial bed.

â–º Loosely wrap client in sheet, blanket, and protective towel (in place for hand treatment application).

â–º Place bolster under lower legs to relieve strain of lower back.

â–º Wrap hair in towel or head band to keep neat and away from face during treatment.

â–º Place Warm Welcome Eye Mask over eyes and bridge of nose.

â–º Remove 2 warm, dry, towel rolls from hot towel cabi. Place one under neck at natural curve of spine.  Adjust for client comfort.  Unroll second towel and wrap around shoulders and over décolleté.  This is a “warm welcome” for your client and has a comforting effect. Be certain that your client is completely at ease.

â–º Briefly explain treatment steps to your client.


NOTE: A series of approximately six separate applications of the Reveal Anti-Aging Treatment are recommended.  Application can be performed at intervals of every seven to 10 days. Never perform more than one peel per week. Depending on the client’s and skin care professional’s objectives, more or fewer peels may be recommended.
