The Signature Facial is a treat for body, skin and soul, it leads to a deep sense of relaxation, giving you a feeling of complete wellbeing and inner balance.
This transformative facial experience restores balance and proper functioning of the skin internally and externally. Using advanced fascia massage and lymphatic stimulation techniques to firm and lift the face and to ensure optimal ‘flow’ for rich nutrient delivery and healthy waste removal.
Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, muscle and nerve fibre in the body and face in place. Restrictions or adhesions in the fascia can impact the internal structures of the skin leading to the development of lines and wrinkles and a general ‘pulling downwards’ creating sagging of the skin.
I use an advanced facial fascia massage technique to relax tension within the muscles and release 'stuck' fascia to improve skin suppleness.
This not only reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but restores a youthful plumpness to the skin. It encourages better circulation for improved nutrient and oxygen delivery and promotes the production of collagen and elastin, plumping the skin, softening and smoothing lines and creating subtle lift of the facial tissues, for firmer more toned and lifted facial features.
The overall effect is refreshed and lifted facial features with restored plumpness for a youthful and glowing appearance.
In the relaxing lymphatic stimulation I use gentle rolling, pumping and wave-like movements to encourage the removal of waste and decongest the skin.
This creates space within the tissues for nutrient delivery to support and strengthen skin functions. Puffiness, dullness, stagnation and congestion are reduced and brighter, vibrant healthier skin is revealed.
The Signature Lift and Firm facial is the only treatment I use the exclusive Laurel Abundant Harvest preparations. This range is a professional only line using the most potent and active plant medicine for real skin change.
Abundant Harvest includes a variety of herbal infusions and potent plant actives that allow me to custom blend treatment masks and herbal compress infusions specific to your skins own unique requirements.
This treatment begins with a warming and relaxing herbal salt foot bath, before moving to the treatment bed for an optional gentle rhythmical back and shoulder massage to release tension within the fascia, promote relaxation and stimulate the lymphatic system.
By gently stimulating movement within the entire body, particularly in the neck, shoulder and head, the flow of lymph and release of fascia in the connective tissues and muscles of the face will be more effective.
This is followed by gentle stretching and massage to legs and arms, again stimulating the lymphatic system, deeply nourishing balms are applied to feet and hands as you gently relax and drift into a state of blissful peace.
Using the luxurious Laurel skincare preparations to deeply nourish, the treatment is tailored to each individuals particular needs. Warm herbal compresses prepare the skin for gentle yet thorough cleansing, with very gentle desquamation to remove dead skin cells but maintain the integrity of the epidermis and its protective acid mantle to support healthy skin barrier function.
Following the fascia massage a treatment masks will be blended especially for you, to support the skin whether it needs, soothed, hydrated, detoxified, or if you have hyperpigmentation or sensitive skin.
After the deeply relaxing lymph stimulation the treatment is completed with specially chosen Laurel Elixir, Serum and Balm.
The Signature Facial is a deeply relaxing and restorative experience. Your mind will be calmed and your skin will have a renewed vibrancy.
Regular treatments support the natural ageing process, lifting and firming facial tissue and muscles, reducing fine lines, promoting collagen production for balanced facial form.
