which stim­u­lates and re­gen­er­ates skin to make it firmer and younger,” said Chung, whose re­cent trip to Kuala Lumpur was to launch Marie France’s lat­est slim­ming treat­ment.

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. Avail­able at all Marie France Body­line out­lets.
