Guinot is launching a new lifting treatment designed to firm and smooth the delicate skin of the face, neck, and chest (often the first areas to show signs of aging)—offering instant and long-term results. The Lift Summum is fast-acting and removes dead skin cells, redefines the face contour, and restores radiance in just 50 minutes.

In four steps, the treatment exfoliates and removes dead cells, massages the skin to improve skin elasticity, fills and erases wrinkles, and finally masks the skin to smooth and lift facial features. Here's how you can perform it:

Step One: Double Exfoliation

In the first phase of this treatment, papaya extract breaks dead cells away from the skin to facilitate exfoliation. Microparticles of cellulose remove dead skin cells mechanically through friction. Fruit acids accelerate shedding and boost cell renewal.  

Step Two: Massage

The second phase includes a massage with mahogany bark extract to improve skin elasticity to help counteract slackening, while alaria esculenta seaweed extract helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

Step Three: Filler

The third phase embeds hyaluronic acid spherical fillers into wrinkle grooves. The fillers then rehydrate and inflate to fill the wrinkles.

Step Four: Firming Mask

The fourth and final phase utilizes dynalist and a biotechnological complex to smooth facial features and combat skin slackening by forming a mask that lifts.

The 50-minute treatment will be available at more than 1,000 Guinot spas across the U.S. this February.  For more info, check out the clip below:
