Cool­ing spa treat­ments

Detox­ify your­self

While the Lift And Firm Hip And Thigh treat­ment at ESPA spa mainly tar­gets cel­lulite and fluid re­ten­tion around your mid­sec­tion, a ther­a­pist will use iced mitts to help detox­ify (and slim down) your body. A scrub made with marine ex­tracts and salt is slathered on and re­moved with ice mitts be­fore a firm detox­i­fy­ing mas­sage that is meant to stim­u­late your colon and break up cel­lulite cells.

Ritz-Carl­ton Abu Dhabi, Khor Al Maqta’a, Abu Dhabi, daily 10am to 10pm, Dhs500. Tel: (02) 8188051. Taxi: RitzCarl­ton. ritzcarl­ton.com

Freeze your fat

You can now freeze fat cells in­stead of try­ing to burn them off in the gym. Cool Shap­ing (also known as cy­rolipo­y­sis) uses a vac­uum, an LED, mas­sage and cryo tech­nol­ogy. It’s claimed the pro­ce­dure eliminates cells through your nat­u­ral me­tab­o­lism. The spa rec­om­mends the treat­ments be done in con­junc­tion with 3-MAX (an­other high-tech fat blast­ing ses­sion).

En­ter the Cryo

Cryo is a high-tech spa at the Abu Dhabi Coun­try Club that of­fers fa­cial and body cryothe­r­a­phy treat­ments that are said to do a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing – from kick-start­ing weight loss, re­duc­ing cel­lulite to help­ing in­flamed mus­cles re­cover. Us­ing tem­per­a­tures as low as -120 to -160 de­grees Cel­sius, guests stand in pa­per pants in a cham­ber filled with cryo­geni­cally cooled air for three min­utes. You can also try a ten­minute cryo glow fa­cial that’ll see chilly air blasted on to your face in a bid to ac­ti­vate col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and boost elas­tic­ity.

Abu Dhabi Coun­try Club, Al Mushrif, Abu Dhabi, daily 10am to 10pm. Tel: (02) 6677736. Taxi: Abu Dhabi CC. cryo.com

Use cold caf­feine

The Elemis treat­ment at St Regis Abu Dhabi uses min­er­als and sea­weed to tar­get cel­lulite and poor skin tone. Guests will have a cool­ing mix­ture of caf­feine and green clay ap­plied to prob­lem ar­eas (hips, thighs, ab­domen and arms) paired with a sculpt­ing mas­sage to whit­tle their sil­hou­ettes. The masque (which also fea­tures red al­gae) is said to cool your body.

St Regis Abu Dhabi, Al Khubeirah, Abu Dhabi, daily 9am to 10pm, Dhs230 to Dhs900. Tel: (02) 6944444. Taxi: St Regis Abu Dhabi, Cor­niche. streg­is­abud­habi.com

Get a CoolShape

Anan­tara Spa also uses CoolShape – a ses­sion here sees ar­eas of your body ex­posed to low tem­per­a­tures (up to -5 de­grees Cel­sius) and then treated to a light suc­tion vac­uum. The method is said to kill ex­cess fat cells that are ab­sorbed and elim­i­nated by your body. The spa of­fers a pack­age of three 60-minute ses­sions, plus three 30-minute lym­phatic drainage mas­sages as well as a per­sonal fit­ness assess­ment and nutri­tion plan for Dhs1,750.
