High Tech Beauty Treatments in the Hotel Spa
High tech beauty is the umbrella term for beauty treatments with technical cosmetic equipment. The combination of modern equipment and high-quality cosmetics creates a synergetic effect that intensifies the effect. It is very important that high tech beauty treatments are only used by professional cosmeticians, because then the best possible results are achieved.
Each treatment and tool is individually tailored to the guest and the results are many and varied: from positively influencing the skin's regeneration processes and activating the metabolism to refining scars or stretch marks. The word "turbo-beauty" is often used in this context - because you can see the effects directly after the beauty treatment.
A little insight into the world of high tech beauty treatments:
Microdermabrasion is a controlled mechanical peeling that removes the topmost skin cells. A kind of "sandblasting device" shoots fine crystals onto the skin at high speed and then sucks them off again directly by vacuum. The intensity of the treatment can be controlled by the number and size of the crystals and the depth of pressure.
This ensures that the skin absorbs skin care products better after the treatment. Microdermabrasion has a skin tightening, firming and regenerating effect and provides a fresh, rejuvenated complexion.
Ultrasound creates a vibration on the skin that acts like a deep massage. The intercellular spaces of the skin dilate, resulting in greater permeability. Applications with ultrasound stimulate both blood circulation and cell metabolism. This method also ensures that the skin absorbs cosmetic active ingredients and care products better. Ultrasound has a refreshing effect on the skin and reduces small wrinkles and cellulite. In combination with ointments, ultrasound can help to visually reduce scars and reduce scar pain.
In micro-needling, the skin is treated with a roller-like device equipped with fine needles, the Derma-Roll. The irritation of the skin by this procedure stimulates the self-healing process and thus the production of collagen, fibres and hyaluronic acid. Skin-care active ingredients are added to the skin either directly during micro-needling or after the treatments, as the skin is then particularly receptive. After a few minutes, small punctures in the uppermost skin layer close up again and are no longer visible one to two days later. Micro-needling activates skin regeneration and visibly reduces skin problems such as scars or stretch marks.
When individually formulated injections are injected into the middle (meso) layer of the skin of the area to be treated, this is called mesotherapy. The injections are mixed with either homeopathic or also conventional medicines in low doses and are considered to be particularly gentle. Injected into selected acupuncture points, they slowly release the active ingredients over a longer period of time. Mesotherapy is used in particular as an anti-ageing measure, as it improves the skin structure and smoothes out small wrinkles.

Our Apparative cosmetics-Tips for you(not so) light potato
Paying attention to your calorie intake? Then listen up: Potatoes are not all the same. A big bowl of baked potatoes has around 200 kcal. Peeled and fried the same potato already has 500 kcal. Believe it or not, further processed to chips, said potato now has 600 kcal.
Yay! Dark chocolate can be healthy. Dark chocolate with a very high cocoa content, little sugar and fat has a positive effect on blood vessels and reduces the risk of heart attacks. Chocolate with around 99% cocoa mass is the healthiest but also the bitterest! We stand at 70% :)
Are you suffering from very rough hands? Then the following helps: Take a handful of oats and pour boiling water over them. Let them steep for a while. As soon as the water is lukewarm, bathe your hands in it for 10 minutes. Dry them, use some cream and you are good to go.
