The Minkyti® Facial – The Best Facial on the Planet for Dry and Aging Skin

Paul Service Spotlight, Spa Notes , , ,
Relaxing Facial Massage at Sanctuary Spa

One of our main concerns for our skin is preventing and reducing the visible signs of aging. To do that, we must infuse dry and aging skin with nourishing essential vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and enzymes.  When the skin is dry, sloughing of dead skin cells is too slow and circulation is minimal, all resulting in sluggish cell renewal and a reduction in that healthy glow that keeps us looking young.

With our unique Minkyti® Facial*, we combine expert techniques that go to the core of what’s causing skin to weaken and age. No other method is as comprehensive in naturally stimulating your complexion to look its best. Deep cleansing and exfoliation are combined with shiatsu pressure point and connective tissue massage to increase circulation to the connective tissues of the face, neck and décolleté area, allowing for greater penetration of nourishment directly into the skin.[...]   READ MORE >
