Treatment to Try: The HydraFacial at Stillwater Spa

Seasonal changes can leave skin dry and dull, but the non-invasive HydraFacial offered at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe’s Stillwater Spa is designed to make a difference.

“As the seasons change, our skin changes, as well,” says Spa Director Erica Korpi. “Going from summer to fall to winter, naturally our skin gets more dehydrated. This treatment is fantastic just with the hydration element alone. For those with more oily skin, it’s also great because it will pull out impurities.”

Stillwater Spa started offering the HydraFacial this spring, and it has quickly become a popular treatment among resort and local guests alike. It’s more effective than a manual facial, Korpi explains, as the equipment extracts, exfoliates, cleanses, hydrates and protects all at once. Following the gentle treatment, recipients can go right back to wearing makeup as usual.

Guests can sample this treatment and others during the fourth annual Lake Tahoe Wellness Weekend during the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe on Oct. 21-23, 2011. The three-day event schedule features seminars and classes covering beauty, nutrition and wellness topics, from skin consultations and spa treatments to cooking demonstrations, life coaching workshops, yoga lessons and belly dancing instruction.

Stillwater Spa’s HydraFacial is $99 for 20 minutes, $215 for 50 minutes or $1,000 for a series of nine 50-minute treatments and an at-home care product. Lake Tahoe Wellness Weekend packages start at $449 for single-occupancy and $649 for double-occupancy rooms. Rates include all events and classes, plus a $100 spa credit. Non-lodging guests can participate for $100 per day.
