Throughout history, gold has been recognised for its anti-ageing and healing benefits. Gold is said to charge the body with ions that stimulate metabolism, circulation, cell renewal and assimilation of nutrients for a youthful skin. In ancient Ayurvedic treatments, gold facials were to used to firm skin, give it radiance and diminish signs of ageing.
The new Marie France Bodyline Goldluxe Body Therapy for women in their 30s is said to tone body curves and target problem areas. Two actives are used to enhance the effectiveness of gold in the therapy to firm skin and improve metabolism.
Vine tonic is six times more concentrated than normal French wine extracts. The antioxidant in wine extracts is said to fight against extrinsic ageing and promotes healthy skin.
Vine Body Serum has vine leaf extract, an antioxidant, and Rhodysterol, a compound derived from red algae found in salt water, to prevent fat formation, stimulate lipolysis activity and eliminate toxins.
The 75-minute treatment treats two parts of the body per session. A warm towel is used on the body to clean the treatment areas, and vine tonic is sprayed and lightly pressed onto the skin.
A vial of vine body serum is then applied using a titanium-plated chromo ultrasound device to penetrate the skin. The ultrasound is claimed to encourage fat burning and metabolism, while the chromo light relieves wastage.
Two pieces (9cm x 9cm) of pure gold leaf is pasted on the treatment areas, which is blended and massaged into the skin. A Gold Body Mask is later applied on treatment areas followed by far infra rays to activate the mask, which is left on for another 10 minutes before removal. n Treatment costs start from RM690.
