Catering to Spa Fresh Skin

More men and women are venturing to skin care spas for treatments that yield softer, smoother, younger looking skin. But the caveat to some of those treatments is sensitive post-treatment skin in need of unique pampering. Enter Pamela Hill Skin Care. Created by Pamela Hill, R.N., a renowned skin care expert with more than 15 years of experience in the spa and medical spa industry, and developed in Facial Aesthetics, her own spa, the line has the benefit of feedback from spa customers.


 
From the outset, Ms. Hill has endeavored to fill the gap between salon and physician based skin care products. The Pamela Hill Skin Care consists of both professional and retail products formulated to be used in the medical spa setting to enhance the results of any specialty spa procedure. The products are formulated to prepare the skin before a procedure, increase efficacy during a procedure and calm and soothe the skin after a procedure to ensure maximum results. “Pamela Hill Skin Care not only enhances and/or increases the efficacy of procedures done in the medical spa, but helps maintain the results in between procedures through daily home care,” she said.


The retail line consists of 16 cleansers, moisturizers, Therapeutic Agents such as Retinol Serum with Replenishing Vitamins and Enzyme Exfoliation Mask with Papaya Enzymes, and carries an average price point of $25.00.


The nine-product professional category is comprised of “Back Bar” products like a clinical strength cleanser, Glycolic Peel, Peel Neutralizer, Masks and a moisturizer. Professional products are offered in 16 and 32 oz. sizes. The average price point for the 32 oz. professional products is $95.00, and $50.00 for the 16 oz. products.


Ms. Hill credits her many years working as a nurse for a plastic surgeon for helping to inspire and develop “aftercare” products specific to the delicate needs of post-procedure patients. For example, a soothing Chamomile Mask is the available for reddened and/or stinging skin that may occur after a Fotofacial, Jessner peel, TCA Peels or laser hair removal. For skin with exhibiting “hot spots” following a light peel, microdermabrasion or facial, there is a Cooling Cucumber Mask.


The Enzyme Exfoliation Mask with Papaya Enzymes harnesses the skin-clearing properties of papaya to yield healthy, glowing skin. The product’s primary ingredient is an optimal concentration of papain, a naturally occurring enzyme found in papaya that has been used for centuries to exfoliate the skin. The enzyme dissolves dead skin cells and removes surface impurities, thereby improving skin tone and texture.

 
Ms. Hill again looked to nature for inspiration when she created her Daily Moisturizer with Green Tea.  Suitable for all skin types, the potent moisturizer harnesses the power of Green Tea to do not only address existing signs of aging, but also to prevent future damage to skin. According to company literature, “Green Tea when topically applied can help stimulate the production of new skin cells, thereby increasing epidermal thickness and lessening the look of fine lines and aging.”


Ms. Hill said she is committed to creating products that offer “the very latest in technology and research.” Examples of this commitment, she said, are best exemplified by her interest in peptide technology and brightening serums. “In addition,” she said the company “utilizes the latest in antioxidants, with percentages higher than OTC levels [of] glycolic acid (12 percent), lactic acid (eight percent) vitamin C (10 and 20 percent).

 
In addition to creating the skincare line, and maintaining her medical spas in Denver, CO, Ms. Hill also offers The Pamela Hill Institute, a “virtual institute” which consists of 12 book titles, and four instructive DVDs to help newly licensed aestheticians attain the confidence and expertise of more seasoned aestheticians. Her curriculum is currently used as part of the in several schools and institutes throughout the country.
