The lead up to Christmas at this time of year is often the busiest, most stressful time of the year. Many of us are trying to wrap up end of year work deadlines, plus there’s Christmas shopping to accomplish, organising food and family for Christmas Day, not to mention work Christmas parties, friend’s Christmas parties, kid’s Christmas parties, the end of the school year…it can be hard to find a minute to catch your breath! And yet times like these are when it’s most important for us all to take some time for self-care, an hour or two just for us; to rest, refresh, and rejuvenate – so that we can be in a condition to enjoy the festive season, rather than just suffer through it. If you’re looking for a way to treat yourself, or indeed, the perfect way to treat a loved one, it’s hard to beat the Amo Ultimate Face Time facial for a nurturing, luxurious experience.
As soon as you set foot in the lusciously cool environment of Amo Spa you can feel yourself relax. Everything from the efficient and friendly staff to the beautiful art deco inspired décor, even the names of the treatments themselves – Rejuvenate Me…Relax Me…Give Me Oxygen… – conspires to make you feel pampered and nourished.
The ninety minute Ultimate Face Time facial begins with an invitation to leave your day to day life behind and step into one of Amo’s soft, comfortable sarongs for your treatment. This is ultimate therapy, guaranteed to leave you looking and feeling revitalised. It incorporates not only a 3 phase oxygenation process and microdermabrasion exfoliation, but also comes to a grand finale with a Jannsen’s collagen fleece mask. The therapist hands you a menu and asks you to choose which of the miraculous collagen masks you would like today from options such as Collagen with Aloe Vera or Collagen with Caviar extract. The Caviar mask is touted to have a powerful stimulating and tonic effect while the Aloe Vera is deeply nourishing and a perfect pick me up after some time in the Bali sun.
In the peaceful Amo inner sanctum, you are invited to lie back and relax while your therapist covers you with a warm blanket and begins soothing ministrations to your face and neck. The microdermabrasion exfoliation treatment involves a subtle scrubbing of the outer layer of your skin, gently but effectively removing dead skin cells and debris, and at the same time stimulating collagen production to restore elasticity.
This is followed by a 3 phase oxygenation treatment, that involves the Oxygen machine spraying first pure highly concentrated molecules of oxygen right into your epidermis, then Jansenn Cosmeceutical serum infused with oxygen and lastly a pure oxygen mask. Your therapist applies the machine wand to your face and neck with a gentle sucking effect, which results in the removal of fine lines and other signs of premature aging for skin that glows with health.
Finally, your choice of Jansenn Collagen Fleece mask is applied. The therapist gently moulds the cloth mask infused with hydrolyzed collagen and other anti-aging ingredients to fit your face. While your skin absorbs the nourishment, your therapist applies facial reflexology to tone your skin and facial muscles, as well as gently massaging your arms, hands and neck – bliss!
Ninety minutes later, which you have spent lying in comfort while your face, shoulders, arms and hands are massaged and pampered, you will feel like a celebrity. Don’t rush to get back to the real world but stop in the ambient lounge for a while with an excellent cappuccino or hot ginger tea. Amo Spa makes self care easy and fun with experiences like these to be enjoyed!
