What exactly is the treatment?
The treatment starts with a personal consultation followed by a facial cleanse. A skin vision lamp is then used to analyse the skin which will show the exact skin type and condition. Next, the exfoliation will refine and brighten the skin before a deep cleanse. After each cleanse the product is removed with a soothing hot towel. The massage includes the décolleté, shoulders, neck and face, followed by pressure points and lymphatic drainage. A dual action mask is applied to the face and neck to deeply cleanse and purify the skin. Whilst this is working, a deeply relaxing scalp massager is performed. The mask is again removed with a hot towel before a facial spritz, and eye and facial moisturisers are applied.

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