What exactly is the treatment?

The Couture Technology Facial uses Elemis’s BIOTECH technology, using professional high potency actives as well as touch therapy, so that therapists can really target what the skin needs. The customer will have a skin consultation, and then the therapist will make a recommendation as to exactly which facial they will have according to personal needs.

Where does it come from?

It’s bespoke technology, unique to Elemis. Its formulation was a turning point for the brand that came about because we recognised that consumers wanted to get more from their facials. It took two years of development in which Elemis Co-Founder and Managing Director Noella Gabriel worked with a number of experts. She wanted to create multifunctional treatments that used hands on therapy as well as new technology, and that really delivered results.

What is it supposed to do?

It delivers visible results and is tailored to the client’s needs. The purpose of the facial is immediate, visible and longer lasting results.

Is there anything you do to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment?

We start the treatment with a skin lab consultation - which combines state-of-the-art technology in facial mapping analysis and a lifestyle consultation to offer the client skincare solutions in only 15 minutes. We use a special machine to take a photo of the skin and the therapist then talks through what they can see, for example, dehydration and open pores, and follows it up with what they can do to target the facial and address those issues.

Is there anything you recommend clients to do pre or post-treatment to get the most out of it?

Post treatment our therapists will give a skincare prescription and recommend Elemis products to help address any skin issues.

Is there anyone you particularly recommend the treatment for?

One of our best selling facials is the BIOTECH Radiance Renew, which is great for targeting a sluggish complexion and restoring vibrancy. It’s a good all-rounder for most people who come in Because of the variations which mean it can be tailored to the individual.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t have this treatment and why?

As with many treatments, the regular contraindications apply. It is not suited to anyone who is pregnant, and if you have had surgery or a serious illness it is best to consult your doctor first and possibly supply a doctor’s note. If you have any questions it is best to contact a therapist before your appointment.
