For those of whom a simple pot of face cream just won’t do, facials provide an additional way to achieve firmer, brighter, and more youthful skin. As skincare creams, serums, lotions and potions become more advanced, so too have the facials on offer today for those seeking ultimate skin perfection.
Combining precious ingredients, pioneering materials, and state of the art techniques, the range of facials on offer in some of the world’s most exclusive locations is phenomenal.
The timeless establishment, The Dorchester in Mayfair, is such a location. A recent treatment to launch in their opulent, art-deco styled spa is the Pure Gold and Collagen Facial by premium skin, hair, and treatment brand Carol Joy London.
This 60 minute facial has been heralded as one of the best five facials in London by Tatler and points towards an emerging trend in incorporating precious metals and substances into skincare and treatments. Don’t be fooled though; the results produced by the use of gold of a lesser quality than 24 Carat are nowhere near the results achieved with pure gold.
24 Carat Gold is known to reduce skin inflammation, one of the main causes of hyper pigmentation and acne, as well as being the key to age delaying and skin brightening.
During the luxurious Pure Gold and Collagen Facial by Carol Joy London, 24 Carat Gold leaf is applied to the face following an application of a plumping Pure Collagen Mask. The gold leaf sits on the skin of the face before being massaged into the epidermis using gentle, circular movements working the precious element into the skin. The facial ends with a spritz of the bestselling Pure Collagen Spray and skin feels instantly lifted and looks brighter.
Carol Joy London is a luxury skincare, haircare, and spa treatment brand, born in Britain out of one woman’s quest for the answer to age defying skincare. The founder, Carol Joy Hatton, travelled the world and invested over £10m into discovering her solution. She returned to the UK armed with Refined Golden Millet Oil and Medical Grade Collagen. With expertise drawn from leading Swiss manufacturing and German engineering, combined with quintessential British refinement and service, a skincare collection was sympathetically created to allow all women to recapture their skin’s vitality and radiance.
The home of Carol Joy London is The Dorchester where they also run their flagship hair salon alongside providing the establishment’s signature facials. Behind the façade of tradition that exudes from The Dorchester hotel, the services on offer utilise pioneering techniques and ingredients including Hyperbaric Oxygen, Pure Collagen, Caviar Algae and 24 Carat Gold, combined with Myofascial massage, Nourishing Steam and Diamond Microdermabrasion.
Carol Joy London also operates in premier locations on an international scale including Fairmont Monte Carlo, Four Seasons Hong Kong, Burj Al Arab, to name just a few.
