Montana's Fountain of Youth Med Spa relaxes patrons in a peaceful setting while improving the appearance of their skin with medical spa treatments. The noninvasive Intraceuticals oxygen facial kicks off with a professional aesthetician consultation. They'll take care not to upset sensitive face-flesh, which is easily offended and prone to public weeping. Next, the aesthetician selects one of four Intraceutical serums for each 30–45-minute treatment: the rejuvenation serum, which nourishes and hydrates starving skin; the Opulence serum, which balances uneven skin scales; the clarity serum, which banishes blemishes and irritation; or the Atoxelene-infusion serum, a natural alternative to antiwrinkle injections. All serums contain lightweight hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, C, and E, and green tea to protect skin from environmental hazards encountered during frosty high-altitude climbs to the drug store. The serum is applied with a stream of cool, calming pressurized oxygen that increases the rate of serum absorption. Initial results appear immediately, though skin should continue to improve during the following days.
