Ageless beauty is a concept that Sulwhasoo knows only too well. This pioneer purveyor of complete, balanced and harmonious skin wellness brings you the TimeTreasure Renovating Treatment program, so that you can enjoy a time-defying complexion that’s as strong and vital as Korea’s legendary red pine.
You don’t have to be of a certain age to need and desire a time-defying anti-ageing solution. Extended periods of stress of all forms, external aggressors in the environment, and the simple fact of stealthy, creeping, passing time can, and will, wreak havoc on even the most naturally resilient skin.
For those reasons and more, Sulwhasoo has wisely created, through deep study, research, and advanced beauty technology, skin formulations, techniques of application and tools, in the form of the formidable TimeTreasure Renovating Treatment program, so that your skin can bolster itself with the best defence against time.
Sulwhasoo’s TimeTreasure Renovating Treatment program, like all its other treatment programs, can only be optimally enjoyed at the Sulwhasoo SPAs, where every iota of luxury and pampering is rich with meaning and purpose.
Where Youth Springs
If you experience constant stress and are battling dull, lined and saggy skin that has lost its tone and radiance, and deepening wrinkles that don’t seem to lighten even with good sleep, the Sulwhasoo TimeTreasure Renovating program is the gentle yet effective overhaul you need.
The key ingredient in Sulwhasoo’s TimeTreasure products, the red pine, indigenous to Korea, is a symbol of long-lasting youth. It contains, in only minuscule amounts, one of nature’s miracles, the transformative De-Aging Active (DAA) agent, which Sulwhasoo identified.
In Korea, the red pine tree has long been considered a symbol of strong vitality, as it can take root deeply even in barren soil, and preserve its verdant needles and the reddish intensity of its bark over many millenniums.
The red pine has also been cherished as a symbol of longevity and youth because of its solidity, its dense growth ring structure, and evergreen nature. According to the Compendium of Materia Medica, the red pine tree’s bark and resin are often culled for medicinal purposes. In Korea’s history, only red pine was used in the building of palaces, considered the most important buildings in the nation, as red pine is not easily warped, and provides protection against rain and moisture.
Basing its anti-ageing skin science on this precious gift from nature, Sulwhasoo is able to confidently and effectively eradicate signs of premature ageing and hold back the ravages of time.
TimeTreasure’s red pine-derived key ingredient, DAA provides a comprehensive treatment against ageing, and effectively addresses signs of it, while combating ageing-causing factors. DAA revitalizes the skin, by activating the skin’s longevity gene that protects the skin from being damaged. A key process DAA mobilises is the eradication of lipofuscin, a waste product that builds up within cells as a result of skin ageing; DAA also prevents the formation of lipofuscin and suppresses ageing effects.
Sulwhasoo’s unique capsulation technology also boosts the delivery of this and other active ingredients, so that the vitality of red pine can quickly reach the deeper layers of skin weakened by ageing. This is how the TimeTreasure Renovating Treatment program comprehensively achieves the ideal of long-lasting youthfulness in skin.
As with all Sulwhasoo facial treatment programs, the TimeTreasure Renovating Treatment program begins with a beauty protocol involving a massage using a special cloth sprinkled with the customer’s choice of Korean herbal medicinal aromatic oil.
This healing treatment that commences as soon as you enter the SPA room, was one of the healing treatments performed in the royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty. Royal pampering aside, this pre-treatment step serves to augment the efficacies of the treatment by awakening the customer’s five senses.
The royal cloth oil massage, where scented oil is dripped onto the cloth, and a 24-pressure-point technique is employed, serves to awaken the skin so that it is able to receive the nourishment that follows. Deep cleansing thereafter, is imperative, to purify the skin of makeup and impurities.
Freshly cleansed skin is best poised to receive a face massage treatment using Sulwhasoo’s signature First Care Activating Serum, which contains the optimal blend of five precious ingredients, Sulwhasoo’s proprietary JAUM Balancing Complex™, the essence of Sulwhasoo’s 50-year research into traditional Korean herbal medicine.
JAUM Balancing Complex™ moisturises and nourishes the skin to relieve dryness, the root cause of all skin troubles, and replenishes deficient energy to bring balance to the skin within these key aspects – nourishment, vitality, clarity, resilience and regeneration.
Radiance and balance precede clarification with the Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Mask. After the application of the luminosity-inducing mask, the customer is indulged with a relaxing décolletage massage to melt away tension from strained shoulders.
Triply good is the application of Sulwhasoo’s exclusive spa Moisturizing Ampoule for maximum hydration and glow – all this in anticipation of the massage with Sulwhasoo’s TimeTreasure Renovating Cream EX.
One of the many high points of Sulwhasoo’s TimeTreasure Renovating Treatment is the unique usage of warmed amber as an instrument of massage to help the skin absorb the product’s ingredients optimally. This stone of healing value is derived from pine resin. In the TimeTreasure Renovating Treatment program, the pair of amber applicators that when placed together form a complete circle, are used with the TimeTreasure line of products, and in the case of this program, the TimeTreasure Renovating Cream EX.
Post-cream comes the application of the First Care Activating Mask, which, infused with one-third the bottle of First Care Activating Serum EX, offers the skin the intensive balancing benefits of a boosting serum, providing it with moisture and soothing reparation. The micro net radiance sheet of the mask fits the curves of the face perfectly, allowing the mask’s active ingredients to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, giving it a smooth, moisturising finish.
The serum in the First Care Activating Mask absorbs fast into the skin, leaving it toned and refreshed. Its natural herbal scent is also calming.
To double-seal in the nutrients and active ingredients of the TimeTreasure Renovating Cream EX, a remodeling mask is placed on top of the First Care Activating Mask; the latter has properties that heighten and maximize the effects of the entire facial. While time is given for the masks to produce results, the customer is given a deeply relaxing hand massage.
Finally, the TimeTreasure Renovating Serum EX is applied on the face using a twist pinching finger massage technique. This is designed to energise facial skin and improve lymph drainage actions, for the overall benefit of the complexion. This strategic pick-up-and-lift action improves skin’s density, helps skin absorb the products better, and gives it youthful tone and radiance.
Customers are encouraged to continue caring for their skin with Sulwhasoo’s comprehensive range of TimeTreasure products, which consist of TimeTreasure Renovating Water EX, TimeTreasure Renovating Eye Serum, TimeTreasure Renovating Eye cream EX, TimeTreasure Renovating Emulsion EX, TimeTreasure Renovating Serum EX, and TimeTreasure Renovating Cream EX.
