Pamper yourself and get serious results with these innovative facials and body blitzes
THE LOW-DOWN: Dr Jules Nabets Zer02 treatment combines Zerona cold laser technology with Carboxy CO2 Therapy for dramatic cellulite reduction and inch loss. Zerona (the latest beauty buzz in the US) targets the fat-storing cells, shrinking and collapsing them. The fat is then
released from the body through the lymphatic system. The Carboxy Therapy involves micro-injections of C02 just beneath the skins surface, which help to break down localised fatty
deposits, stimulating collagen production and increasing circulation.
RESULTS: Overall fat and cellulite reduction (expect up to 5cm inch loss within three weeks) as well as smoother, firmer skin with an improvement in the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
WHERE: Available exclusively at Dr Jules Nabet Medical Rooms, Kensington High Street, London, treatments cost £150 per session with a course of six recommended for optimum results. Call 020 7938 2195 or visit julesnabet.com for details.
THE LOW-DOWN: A great spa-like facial, the HydraFacial incorporates medical strength ingredients and combines diamond microdermabrasion and botanical infusions for deep cleansing and painless extractions. This is followed by vitamin infusions into the skin to nourish and hydrate. It also uses LED to stimulate collagen production.
RESULTS: Its a great one-off treatment for a fresh-faced party look, or a course of six treatments will reveal marked improvement for sun damage and mild pigmentation, poor skin tone and texture, acne, puffy eyes and fine lines.
WHERE: For more information, call 020 7408 1164 or visit mayfairpractice.com. A course of six treatments costs £650.
THE LOW-DOWN: The LED Light Therapy Skin Rejuvenation pod is a full body and face treatment that uses convective dry thermal heat and near-infrared heat along with intense LED light to tighten and tone the skin by replenishing damaged skin cells and stimulating the production of new collagen. The combination of red light and the thermal heat has been shown to also increase basal metabolic rate (BMR), which in turn aids weight loss. The LED works to stimulate our serotonin inhibitors, too, which become depleted in the winter months.
RESULT: Youll emerge looking beautiful and feeling happy.
WHERE: Visit drfrancesprennajones.com or call 020 7499 3848 for more
information. Prices start from £120 for one treatment with a 10 per cent
discount on a course of six treatments.
THE LOW-DOWN: This innovative facial from Lancôme combines sophisticated dermatological analysis with a face-sculpting massage. The facial starts with a scientific snapshot of the skin using a skin diagnosis probe that measures your hydration levels, sun damage and the length and depth of lines and wrinkles. The therapist will then follow up with a personal prescription of skincare
products and key massage techniques.
RESULTS: Facial muscles are defined, the face is lifted and wrinkles smoothed.
WHERE: The Lancôme Luxury Facial is available at Peter Jones, London. Its £25, redeemable against two or more skincare purchases on the day of treatment.
THE LOW-DOWN: The Drip n Chill treatment, exclusive to EF MediSpas Chelsea Clinic, is essentially an IV saline drip chock full of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals to boost your immune system and leave you feeling revitalised. Set in a specially designed chill-out area, you can enjoy a foot massage or reflexology while the drip works its magic. Choose from a menu that includes the calming Stress Buster or the Meta-Booster, which helps speed up the metabolism and aid weight loss.
RESULT: The super-nutrient infusions for your saline drip have been formulated to correct any imbalances, increase
energy levels and assist the body to face up to the stresses and strains of modern lifestyles.
WHERE: For further information, call 020 7186 0900 or visit efmedispa.com. The Drip n Chill costs £225 per session, without a foot massage, and if you book a course of six, the last treatment is free.
THE LOW-DOWN: A favourite with Madonna, the brand new Demilec Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment uses high-energy acoustic waves to tackle cellulite by stimulating the
microcirculation in the fat tissue.

tightens muscles and encourages elimination of lymphatic congestion.
