If you like results-driven beauty treatments, check out the Saguaro Spa’s new Intraceuticals line. It launched April 4 and is available in new facial services and for sale -- only at the Saguaro Palm Springs Spa. “We’re the only hotel in the desert to have Intraceuticals,” Theron Pucinelli, the Saguaro Spa manager, told me. He was familiar with Intraceuticals (which is manufactured in Australia) from spa experiences elsewhere in the world and said he is thrilled to bring it to the desert.  


“Intraceuticals is very effective at combating the drying effects of the desert climate,” he explained. “It provides intense hydration utilizing oxygen, vitamins A, C and E; antioxidants and Hyaluronic acids to lift, tone and hydrate the skin. You can see the results immediately. Skin looks instantly plumper and glowing. And, it gets better the second day.” Pam Price, one of the desert’s top beauty writers, agreed. “Intraceuticals is a very good product,” she told me.   


I experienced a mini version of the new “Intraceuticals Rejuvenate” infusion treatment – and my face did look better for several days. First, the esthetician applied the serum over my entire face including under the eyes and on my lips. Next, using a small, high-powered air brush, she infused the serum into my skin with a strong, constant blow of cold oxygen. For perhaps 10 minutes she worked the oxygen across my face, with custom concentration on my laugh lines, under and around my eyes, around my mouth and even on my lips. Looking into the mirror afterward, my complexion was glistening like a disco ball – and looked great. “The infusions are good for all skin types. You can put your make-up on over it. However, to get the most benefit, don’t wash your face too soon. Leave the infusion on for as long as possible,” Theron recommended.  


The Saguaro Spa’s new Intraceuticals menu includes:
The 60-minute $150 Rejuvenate Treatment to lift, tone and hydrate the skin.
The 30-minute $75 Atoxelene Treatment, an amino acid add-on to the Rejuvenate Treatment to increase the reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The 60-minute $225 Rejuvenate Anti-aging Treatment, which combines the Rejuvenate and Atoxelene services to tighten and firm the facial contour and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
The 90-minute $275 Ultimate Treatment which adds botanical skin brighteners and super concentrated vitamin C to the anti-aging service for a luminous skin clarifying effect and targets the neck and décolleté and includes a hand treatment.
The 30-minute $50 Intraceuticals Boosters, which include vitamin C, collagen and antioxidants.


Book an appointment or give Theron a call at 1-760-969-6483.
