If the words restore, renew and revitalize come to mind when thinking about the needs of your skin, then you need not hesitate with booking an appointment for the Time Reversal facial at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental. Using a regimen of highly engineered treatments by Somme Institute, this results-driven nourishing treatment is recommended for all skin types and works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, discoloration and acne, all while working to improve the skin’s tone and texture.
Upon arrival, each guest is given the opportunity to unwind with slippers, a warm towel and calming tea followed by an invitation (either before the appointment or after) to experience the spa’s Heat and Water oasis, which includes the Amethyst Steam Room, the Experience Shower and Vitality Pool. Those who prefer lounging with the option of enjoying refreshments will find this and more in the Relaxation Room.
Your therapist greets you in the Relaxation Room and escorts you to the treatment room, where they will review the client consultation form with you which will determine if there are any contraindications, or reasons why it might be unsafe to perform services. The facial treatment itself involves a thorough cleansing, toning and skin analysis. The skin analysis is performed by using both a magnifying lamp and woods lamp.
Once the skin analysis has been completed, the remainder of the treatment is customized to meet each individual’s needs. Generally, the remaining steps will include an exfoliation, extractions, a cold stone massage, an indulgent hand massage, collagen mask treatment, foot massage and the application of a serum, eye cream and moisturizer with an SPF (if needed).
Following the completion of your treatment, your spa therapist will present you with a Product Recommendation Sheet which will include treatment recommendations, as well as products recommended for at-home use. Product recommendation suggestions should always be welcomed after investing in a treatment such as a facial. Your goal should be to protect your investment (facial treatment) and maintain all of the esthetician’s hard work with a consistent at-home facial regimen.
