Searching for the fountain of youth? Who isn’t? Starting now, you may not have to look very far. Named among the “Top Ten Destinations in the World” by Travel + Leisure magazine for three years running, Lake Austin Spa Resort is enhancing its current treatment offerings with astounding and age-defying HydroPeptide’s high-result, zero down-time facials. How great is that?

The leading peptide brand’s award-winning home care products featuring over 60 unique peptides blended with carefully selected antioxidants and botanicals are offered to the spa’s guests seeking to extend their post-treatment results. We recently were asked to try out the facial for clock-turning-back potential and what did we find? Suddenly, the mirror reflected years gone in about an hour. It achieved the desired results with both minimal time and pain.

How? Attribute it to a few different HydroPeptide treatments, including the Advanced Resurfacing Facial and Blueberry Restorative Facial. The HydroPeptide professional products used in these facials deliver superior anti-aging results for even the most sensitive and mature skin types by nourishing and gently resurfacing the skin with lifting, volumizing and moisture-binding peptides combined with botanical stem cells and exfoliants shown to be effective on fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and sun damage. We learned that the driving force in these formulas are peptides, the messenger molecules that work on a cellular level to increase hydration and reduce visible fine lines and wrinkles while optimally nourishing collagen.

We also learned that these zero-downtime facials can be done on the day of a special occasion to soothe the skin and produce a more youthful looking, even-toned, matte-finish complexion. Clients see continued improvement in the days following treatment and are advised to adopt a HydroPeptide homecare regimen tailored to their individual skin concerns for amplified results. Carol, the aesthetician at Lake Austin spa, commented, “Who wouldn’t want to feel instantly younger looking like this?” We agree.

The Advanced Resurfacing Facial (50 minutes; $175) is an instant resurfacing treatment that combines the best of science and nature to produce the end result of a glowing and camera-ready complexion. Six Botanical stem cells work to protect from external stressors while peptides rejuvenate and revitalize. In one treatment, skin is youthfully plump, smooth, radiant and visibly lifted, with continued improvement in the days following treatment.

We also found out more about the company behind this miraculous treatment. Founded in 2004, HydroPeptide is a leading peptide-based anti-aging cosmeceutical line famous for professional facial and body treatments and 21 retail products featuring VLR technology – using the correct variety of peptides applied at clinical levels with continuous repetition for superior anti-aging results. With over sixty peptides, botanical stem cells, and moisturizing actives, our award-winning daily care and professional collections are the perfect combination of science and aesthetics, simple and customizable for all skin types.

“I fell in love with HydroPeptide in the fall of 2012 after meeting Steve and Chris, the President and Vice President, at the SpaTec show in Tucson,” said Robin Jones, the Spa Director of Lake Austin Spa Resort. “I saw results so quickly that I've been afraid to stop a year and a half later! I am obsessed with all of the products and recommend them whenever the opportunity presents itself! The Advanced Resurfacing Facial and Blueberry Restorative Facial have been a success with clients and my 20 estheticians absolutely love both the HydroPeptide facials and retail products. Next, we plan to enhance our menu with an 80 minute HydroPeptide treatment.”
