Tempt your radiance out of its shell. Tiger Clam shells, the natural, mineral heated shells that are typically used during Swedish massage-based Lava Shells massage have been incorporated into a facial treatment that aims to relax and revitalise your mind whilst rejuvenating your skin.
The shells used during the treatment are identical to the mineral reaction-heated ones used during a Lava Shells massage. After cleansing and polishing your face, neck and décolleté, the therapist will begin a specialised gentle massage using a single Lava shell. The warmth from the shell is designed to relax your facial muscles, draw blood to the surface of the skin (boosting circulation and plumping the tissues) and open your pores (enabling hydrating products used throughout the facial to penetrate deeper into the skin).
After the 'triple Lava lift' heated facial massage, a mineral mud mask is applied before the therapist gives you a soothing head massage. In total, the treatment usually lasts between 30 minutes and one hour, but Lava Shells claim that the minerals used in the products stay active for hours after you leave the spa. Lava Shells are also non-porous, and so no unhygienic bacteria or oil is absorbed and passed from the skin of one patient to another.
If you’re looking for an indulgent, original and non-invasive way to improve the appearance of your skin, then a calming Lava Shells Therma facial could be right for you.
All the products utilized by practitioners during Lava Shells Therma Facials are suitable for those with sensitive skin, with only allergen-free fragrances, non-animal, non-GM and paraben free organic ingredients used.
If you have extensive broken or sunburnt skin on your neck or face, you should probably avoid this treatment as the heat from Lava Shells may prove to be uncomfortable.
Lava Shells retain their heat up to 10-12 times longer than the basalt stones used in hot stone massage therapy.
