The new Hydra3Ha Facial has been designed to meet the hydration needs of all skin, according to Sothys. It is a six-phase treatment that incorporates two different forms of hyaluronic acid—one high molecular weight (Ha. hPM), the other low molecular weight (Ha. bPM)—and the company’s patented Boletus extract, which is said to stimulate the synthesis of hyaluronic acid.
During the facial process, Ha. hPM in patch form plus “quenching” active ingredients immediately restores hydration; the boletus extract and a “regulating active ingredient” reactivates skin’s hydric memory; and Ha. bPM plus restructuring active ingredients regenerates the epidermis.
The one hour and 15 minute treatment also features exclusive “digi-esthétique” massage techniques on the face.
After just one treatment, Sothys contends there’s up to 71% more hydration—and my skin felt it for sure.
Two Hydra3Ha intensive hydrating creams and a serum are available for customers take home. The long-term action of the serum combined with the immediate action of the hydrating cream offers the skin a high-performance moisturizing solution, notes Sothys, which offers the treatment and its skin care and cosmetics products at The L'Institut Sothys at 37 West 57th Street.
