Miranda Kerr, Kim Kardashian and Naomi Campbell are just a few celebrities on the Intraceuticals, aka “No-Tox Botox”, train. Last weekend I paid a visit to the first (and only in North America) Spa by JW located at the JW Marriott Houston Downtown to find out what all the hype was surrounding this hydrating and rejuvenating treatment. My stay included an evening in the one of the hotel’s 4 Spa Suites. After only one year of opening the Spa by JW has racked up celebrity and professional clientele with their luxury accommodations and amenities and recently featured in the New York Times as offering the some of the best “lickety-split” spa services for the busy professional. The JW Marriot Downtown and Spa isn’t just another blown out luxe hotel with no personality, it’s foundation holds a rich history in modern development for Houston, where, in its previous life “The Carter Building” (constructed in 1910) was the city’s first official skyscraper and hailed as Houston’s most magnificent structure.
The hubby and walked into our spa suite and I immediately thought: I should have booked this for Valentine’s weekend, le sigh. The extremely spacious room is equipped with a welcoming champagne on ice, a Vitamin C shower, soaking tub, massage chaise lounge, yoga equipment, and aromatherapy turndown service to name a few. The suites sit on the same floor as the Spa by JW, health club and executive lounge, making access to the amenities very convenient. The executive lounge offers breakfast along with 24-hour refreshments such as wine, soda, coffee and snacks, not to mention many comfortable settings to get work done.[huge_it_gallery id=”50″]
No-tox botox is receiving a lot of celebrity endorsement’s, which makes the non-invasive treatment, promising similar results to injections, all the more exciting! I don’t believe in injections before 30 so Intraceuticals seem like a worthy preventative option.
“Intraceuticals facials leave my skin glowing and radiant! Thank you”.
“Thank you Intraceuticals. When constantly travelling I get dehydrated and Intraceuticals is an absolute necessity to replenish my skin”.
“I love the Intraceuticals Facial Treatments. Getting them makes me feel so rejuvenated and refreshed. xo”.
My treatment began with a 15-minute complimentary massage where four of the five senses; sound, sight, touch and smell were stimulated. A scenic video played with relaxing music and aromatherapy while the kinks and knots were worked out.
Next up was eye and lip Intraceutical treatment. I was bought into the private treatment room where the technician and I discussed my skin goals, what I was receiving and what to expect. I laid down in my JW Spa robe, and let the magic happen. Between the base, collagen serum, eye contour gel, vitamin C booster and oxygen stimulating my face I was super eager to see the results. We did half face at a time so I could see the results more clearly. I was impressed. My undereye was fuller and fresher for sure, but what really stood out to me was how lifted and tight the treated side was. From the jaw line to the cheek bone to the eyebrow, everything was naturally elevated and defined. I should note that I did not get the full facial treatment but since the area around my eyes and lips were stimulated and worked on I felt my whole face showed some great results. By the end my lips were looking fuller. I had been experiencing some dryness and cracking due to the cold weather prior to this treatment, but I was totally cured. The products listed below were penetrated deep into my skin reaching the dermis using oxygen. The intensity is something you can really only get in a spa treatment.
