Go Beyond Skin Deep at The Spa at the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort

Sanctuary Spa crop Upon leaving a spa, guests don’t want to just feel good — they want to look good as well. The Spa at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort has teamed up with the developer of the NuFACE Trinity device to deliver FDA-approved, multi-solution anti-aging therapies that produce almost instant, visible results. “Our new 90-minute Micro-Current Face Lifting Facial and 60-minute Wrinkle Repair Treatment provide nearly instant results that appear more natural than a facelift or Botox treatment,” says spa manager Paul Fleming. High-Tech Electronic Facials With the NuFACE Trinity facial, treatments go beyond skin deep. The device stimulates the facial muscles, in essence giving them a workout — even around the eyes — to leave them more toned and strengthened. This “workout” leads to tighter and lifted skin, a more defined jawline and smoothed-out wrinkles. Unlike some medical devices, which “shock” to stimulate the muscle (which can cause atrophy), NuFACE is safe and gentle, and offers settings to adjust to each guest’s individual comfort level. The Spa offers the treatment at a cost of $275 for a 90-minute session. The NuFACE Trinity Wrinkle Repair treatment minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. To combat the breakdown of collagen and elastin due to aging, the NuFACE Trinity LED red light attachment is used to increase the production of collagen and elastin in the treated area. A 60-minute treatment is $205 at The Spa. “To help our guests appreciate their results, we treat one half of the face and then allow them to see the difference,” says Fleming. “We then complete the treatment on the other half of the face.” Just like a workout for any other body part, results are temporary, with the first treatment peaking at about eight hours. “The more guests repeat these treatments at home, the more lasting they become,” explains Fleming. “To facilitate home care, we offer the NuFACE Trinity for sale in The Spa.” Read more about Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Connoisseur: The Magazine of Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
