Dh350 for a 60-minute ses­sion. Pack­ages avail­able.

Im­proved mi­cro­cir­cu­la­tion and ton­ing of cellulite-af­fected ar­eas.

The treat­ment con­sists of ex­fo­li­a­tion, body wrap, and a full-body mas­sage to fin­ish. The prod­ucts are all from Ital­ian brand Com­fort Zone, and a real perk is they are non-sticky, so there was no need to shower at any point.

The Body Strate­gist+Ac­ti­va­tor Gel con­tains a blend of lac­tic and gly­colic acids, to dis­solve dead skin cells and al­low for deeper pen­e­tra­tion of the Body Strate­gist + Re­mod­eller cream. The lat­ter is the key prod­uct in the treat­ment and has thermo-ac­tive in­gre­di­ents in­clud­ing caf­feine, for im­proved cir­cu­la­tion, and car­ni­tine, which helps re­duce the ac­cu­mu­la­tion of lo­calised fatty de­posits.

I was wrapped in plas­tic sheet­ing and warned I might feel an in­tense hot and cold sen­sa­tion but, re­ally, I just felt a pleas­ant tin­gling. After 20 min­utes, dur­ing which I had a fa­cial mas­sage, the cream was re­moved with hot tow­els. Next was the mas­sage with the Body Strate­gist+Re­finer Cream, which con­tains seanamin, a marine com­plex rich in min­eral salts, and en­cour­ages re­ab­sorp­tion of ex­cess flu­ids.

Who knew that an ef­fec­tive cellulite treat­ment could be as re­lax­ing as a spa ther­apy? Cer­tainly not me.

I have al­ways been scep­ti­cal of quick fixes, but I can hon­estly say my skin felt much firmer and smoother after just one treat­ment. The num­ber of ses­sions needed varies de­pend­ing on the ex­tent of the prob­lem but for vis­i­ble cellulite, bi-weekly ses­sions for two months would typ­i­cally be rec­om­mended.
