I went to a party at the Spa in the Monte Carlo Hotel and was invited to indulge in a massage and facial to try their new product line! That is the kind of party I like. It is wonderful how a massage or treatment can make you feel. I tried Cures by Avance before at another spa and now they are here at the Monte Carlo.
Sara Glass, Monte Carlo Spa Director, gave her reasons for choosing Cures by Avance, “We wanted to make sure the products were designed for the specific needs of our guests. They were personalized and fitting for every treatment we offer when we decided to go with the line.
Dee DeLuca-Mattos, Vice President of Cures by Avance, feels, “That is very important for us because our concept always remains the same. We focus on creating curative and corrective therapies that really work on skin conditions, however every spa has their own unique factors and the beauty about the Monte Carlo, they are smaller, but their unique factor is that they really focus on personalization. With their treatments, it was important because they are result oriented and can embrace every part of the treatment with their clients. The line is versatile and we can use it in different ways. We focus on results.”
I had the Reboot Facial, just like we have to reboot my computer.
Dee answered, “Sometimes our body and face gets sluggish, these are the type of treatments that reboot us and make us look fresher and more revived.”
I needed a reboot with my busy schedule. The therapist used Vitamin C. I know it is good because we drink it in orange juice and take Vitamin C pills. You use it in your product.
Dee gave some background, “Vitamin C is an anti oxidant. The environment and everything around us creates free radicals which slow down the regeneration and renewal process. When we use Vitamin C, this helps to regenerate the cells at a much faster rate. You see instant results of lighter and brighter skin but it has a long term reparative process as well.”
After the treatment, my skin felt so soft I did not want to put on any makeup to spoil the fresh feeling.
Summing up the theme of the spa, Dee said, “Sara has worked diligently in reinventing the spa. She wanted to take the menu and redesign treatments which will raise the bar of what she is offering to her clients. The theme is reinventing and refreshing the body.
You will not find 25 minute Mini-Treatments in many spas, these are for clients who are busy and do not have time for the full 50-80 minute treatments. Sara wanted to make certain they offered a variety of different services so there is something for everyone. It is amazing what a huge impact Mini-Treatments can have on clients. I experienced two wonderful Mini-Treatments for 50 minutes of pleasure with the Reboot Facial and Restore d©collet©. There are Mini-Treatments for the face, eyes, d©collet©, body, feet, and more. You can take a half hour facial and a half hour massage, mix or match any way you wish. Refresh and rejuvenate no matter which treatment you receive.
The Spa and Salon at the Monte Carlo Hotel, is located on the second floor, 3770 South Las Vegas Boulevard, in Las Vegas.
