A body treatment could involve anything from a relaxing massage to a rigorous and rejuvenating body scrub. Similarly, their benefits depend on the body treatment and include:
Here at Beauty Essence, in our City of London salon, we offer a range of body treatments to suit all of your beauty needs.
Guinot Hydradermie Back
Following the same steps as a traditional facial, this treatment deep cleanses, exfoliates, tones and steams the back. This is followed by an anti-bacterial action oxygen infusion, massage and mask to finish.
It’s the ideal deep cleansing treatment for cleaning blocked pores and improving skin texture. This special back treatment purifies and rehydrates the skin.
Microdermabrasion can be beneficial for a wide range of skin conditions on the face and body. Rejuvenating, smoothing lines and wrinkles, brightening dull, dehydrated skin and tackling blackheads and blocked pores. It’s also very effective for reducing acne scarring and pigmentation caused by sun damage.
Body brushing is a simple treatment that can have fantastic health and beauty benefits. It can help to remove impurities from your skin and improve circulation in your body. The treatment involves a thorough brushing of your skin using a clean brush with firm, natural bristles. Our therapist will brush your skin with sweeping and sometimes circular motions, beginning at your feet and working in the direction of your heart.
Like a full body massage, please let the therapist know if you prefer a gentler or firmer touch. We aim to adapt all treatments to your specific needs and preferences.
Environ Body Sculpt
Using the Environ Ionzyme® DFII Machine combined with Environ’s Unique Body Profile Gel, this treatment drives biologically active ingredients deep into the lower layers of your skin. Gentle pulses and soundwaves are delivered to the thighs, stomach and arms, which smooth and improve the texture and appearance of the skin.
This reduces the ‘orange peel effect’ on upper thighs and buttocks leaving skin super smooth, nourished and hydrated. It also helps to smooth and minimise stretch marks.
For long-lasting, more noticeable results, we recommend a course of treatments combined with Environ body home care products. Please speak to one of our therapists to find out more.
Luxury Salt Body Polish
A body polish is perhaps best thought of as a ‘facial’ for the body. Our therapist applies a polishing formula comprising a natural salt exfoliant and aromatic essential oils to your entire body. The aim is to remove dull, dead skin cells while promoting the healthy production of new for improved appearance and condition.
A body polish can be invigorating and improve circulation, helping to fight cellulite and improve your skin tone. It can also form the basis of other body treatments because it:
prepares your skin for an even tan
opens the pores and awakens the skin before a wrap treatment
Chocolate Body Wraps
The cocoa solids in chocolate are incredibly high in antioxidants and are naturally anti-ageing. A luxury chocolate wrap detoxifies, replenishes nutrients and revitalises your skin, leaving it hydrated and silky smooth. The aroma is heavenly, creating a sense of wellbeing and relaxation.
Guam Anti Cellulite Detox Wrap
A beautifully smooth, blemish-free skin could be yours with the Guam Anti-cellulite Body Wrap. This highly potent formula contains Guam Algae, Black Tourmaline, Marine Extracts, and European Botanicals to firm and tone your skin.
Seaweed contains abundant minerals that exfoliate, detox, regenerate skin elasticity, moisturise and noticeably reduce cellulite on legs, thighs, and buttocks.
Things to consider – Before, During and After Treatment
Preparations and precautions depend on what kind of treatment you are having. Give us a call, and one of our experienced therapists will be happy to answer your questions.
As a general rule, remember to stay hydrated and avoid big meals and alcohol beforehand, as this could make you feel uncomfortable during the body treatments.
Again, how you'll feel afterwards will depend on what kind of body treatment you have had. Remember that most body treatments will make you feel invigorated and relaxed, a powerful combination that may not ready you for an afternoon at work. So why not plan a little time for yourself.
You are in safe hands
Therapists at our beauty salon in Central London are experienced professionals. Our priority is that you feel relaxed and comfortable during your treatment session. We are happy to talk you through the procedure and answer questions that arise at any time.
If you have questions about any of our treatments, please call us at the salon, and we will be only too happy to help. If you are new to some treatments (e.g. facials, waxing and IPL) or have sensitive skin, why not book a consultation and patch test. This will help us advise you on the best treatment options for your skin and hair type.
Changes because of Covid-19
Some of our procedures may have changed to make your treatments as safe as possible. But you'll find our warm, friendly atmosphere remains, and you'll still come away feeling relaxed and beautiful.
