Who doesn’t want spa and fitness treats with immediate results? Immediate results are almost impossible to find in this industry where most goals are to be reached through a gradual building up of small increments.
But whether you believe it or not; there are a few treats that can leave you prettier, and skinnier immediately! These fabulous immediate results are why I want you to know more about my afternoon with Medica Group.
On a lovely fall-weathered afternoon, Uber Beirut came under my house to pick me up in a FAB limo. After a treat of champagne, chocolate and strawberry… And a sushi lunch by Yabani at Medica with the team; it was time for some serious work!
That’s where I will quit the romantic spoiled talk and tell you more about the beauty and fitness treatments you will HAVE TO try for yourself:
The first treatment my face was given was the chemical peel, based on fruity acids. This peeling is supposed to clean the face deeply and remove any deeply placed dirts and dead cells. This was not my first chemical peel; but it was definitely one of the few that left my face feeling refreshed instead of totally red and irritated (a side effect you will experience with most chemical peelings on the market). After the peeling, normally follows a facial mask. The one Medica picked for me was the Acerola Mask, which is one that is supposed to be whitening, regenerating and full of vitamin C. The mask is thick, and it becomes rubbery on your face, which will also dry out the extra oils and close the open pores. The immediate effect? The soft feel and glow on my face. The mask was followed by a face massage with a special “Miel de Modelage” that is specifically designed to nourish the skin after the facials. The massage is also relaxing and soothing. Everything was finished off with an intense nourishing moisturizer or a “Creme Haute Tolerance”. After this treat, no makeup was allowed for 24 hours to allow the skin to draw the benefits of the treatments without being disturbed by other chemicals.
Now let me tell you one thing; judging facials goes in two steps: The first is the immediate feel, and the second should happen after you have slept and woke up. The way your face looks the next morning right after you jump out of bed will be your ultimate guide. For my Medica facials, the immediate feel was extra softness and an instant glow; but the next morning my skin was even (as if it was never exposed to the sun or tired before) the pores were less visible and the skin texture more flexible with much less dry patches.
Now the truly immediate results were the ones I got from the fitness treat! The “Arosha” wrap. I am sure you heard of hot wraps before; these mechanically or chemically heated body wraps that aim at decreasing water retention and at giving you a less swollen lower body immediately. But this Arosha wrap completely relies on its active ingredients to heat up and start draining you from the extra water. No hot bed nor mechanical heaters needed, just the Arosha wet body wraps filled with active ingredients.
You will be able to feel the Arosha wrap taking effect as the skin will be heating up substantially while the excess water is released. The immediate effect of the Arosha wrap is a much lighter bottom half; since I lost the water retention immediately; the skin will also feel smoother and moisturized. However, this wrap also works on cellulite, and a cumulative effect of it is a clear decrease in orange skin effect.
Overall, I was happy and spoiled! And I left Medica instantly skinnier and prettier!! Not that I am asking you to give up your healthy habits and daily beauty routines; but some “right now” effects are sometimes exactly what a lady needs to boost her confidence.
