The months of winter can leave you searching for a breath of fresh air and the desire to feel the warmth of the sun on your skin. The punishment of cold weather you experience is also suffered by your skin, which has been beaten and battered. After months of freezing temperatures and sub-zero wind chills, both you and your damaged skin welcome a sunny sixty-degree day with open arms.
Every year it is important to treat your skin to a special rejuvenation at the beginning of spring. Cold temperatures make your skin dry, cracked, and flaky. And with your wedding approaching, there has never been a more important time to ensure that your skin is hydrated and glowing.
We met with our friends at Spa on Penn to discuss some of the treatments they recommend to ensure that you are radiant on your big day.
For Your Face
Diamond tip microdermabrasion removes the outermost layer of skin cells (which takes most of the brunt during the winter months), leading to increased softening and smoothing of skin. A series of 4-6 treatments is recommended for optimal results, but a 30 minute session is all you need to get started.
Deluxe Diamond Microdermabrasion Facial Treatment
Apply the Diamond Microdermabrasion facial above that removes the dead skin with the addition of Glycolic Acid to help improve the appearance of fine lines and stimulate cell renewal. You don’t want to only get rid of the damaged skin, but give your new layers a healthy start. This treatment typically takes an hour.
TMR Advanced Facial Treatment
The epitome of skin regeneration after winter! This facial includes two types of exfoliation, Korean layering techniques, a freeze-dried collagen mask infused with stem cells, specific massage techniques for enhancing the eye area, electrical iontophoresis, vacuum suction, and massage. All of this culminating into the ultimate ninety minute facial experience!
Collagen 2000 Advanced European Facial Treatment
This European Facial Treatment utilizes several forms of Collagen for an intense skin softening, hydrating, and line smoothing treatment. Pure natural Collagen is compatible with all skin types, as it is the most common protein in the human body. As a natural element, it is responsible for elasticity, moisture retention and skin smoothness. Just one treatment provides your skin with an optimum of moisture, improving the wrinkle profile Biomatrix, which can store moisture 30 times its own weight. Hydration levels are increased to 180% during this hour-long treatment.

French Red Clay Mud Wrap
The Sedona and French Red Clay Mud Wrap is the most effective anti-oxidant and anti-aging formulation. This blend purges toxins, leaving the skin soft and re-mineralized with a noticeable glow.

These muds are meant to be massaged onto the body, forming a masque to allow nutrients and anti-oxidants to be absorbed into the skin while detoxifying, hydrating, and healing.
