An oasis of calm and tranquility, high above the city on the ninth floor of Jumeirah Carlton Tower, The Peak’s signature SKEYNDOR Kobido and Global Lift Facial combines Kobido facial massage techniques with SKEYNDOR’s revolutionary Global Lift Facial to remove toxins, smooth out wrinkles and restore facial fullness.
The Kobido massage removes toxins and smooths out wrinkles without the insertion of needles, whilst the Global Lift programme restores facial fullness and improves definition, as well as minimising wrinkles around the eye area. With ProGEN-in technology, this treatment achieves a face-lift effect by redefining the jawline and firming the neck.
Having read about the amazing results possible thanks to the SKEYNDOR Global lift with Kobido massage treatment at The Peak Health club & Spa, I was looking forward to experiencing them first hand having been warmly greeted by my therapist Maria and led to the relaxing treatment room in the Spa.
First Maria cleansed and toned my skin before exfoliating it to remove dead skin cells, encourage cell renewal and improve circulation. She then applied SKEYNOR’s Global Lift Activating Firming Gel and used hydro-electrophoresis for a few minutes.
This is a non-traumatic method using pulsed Galvanic current to help active ingredients in aqueous solutions to penetrate more deeply into the skin by transporting molecules across the dermal barrier using one million pulses per second. The activating firming gel is an emollient non oily gel which has tensor and firming properties.
Maria then applied an SKEYNOR’s Global Lift Anti Gravity Serum and use electrophoresis for 6-8min. The anti-gravity serum is formulated to produce a global lifting effect on the skin. It is specially developed for treating loose mature and prematurely photo-aged skin with hydrolyzed collagen and organic silicone which consolidate the skin’s supportive properties.
Using a little more of the Anti Gravity Serum, Maria performed Kobido massage on my face which is a massage technique based on a traditional Japanese facial for lifting and firming. The Kobido heritage stretches back over 500-years so I knew that I was in safe hands with Maria who is professionally trained in the special percussion based technique.
After Kobido, SKEYNOR’s Lift Action Mask was applied, first on the neck and then on the face. The mask was left on for about 20 minutes during which time Maria used cryotherapy over the mask for about 10 minutes. This produced a cooling sensation over my skin which Maria told me preserves the active ingredients in the skin and prevents them from being transported away from the areas we were focusing on.
The final stage of the treatment, Maria applied a small amount of Lift Contour Cream to my skin. This face and neck cream is based on [ProGEN-in] technology to provide a firming, redefining and anti-wrinkle effect which helps cosmetically lift the skin giving it a more youthful appearance.
In the homecare routine I was given to take away with me was the Global Lift Elixir. Winner of two prestigious Awards, Best Anti-ageing Product, this heavenly smelling serum redefines the key points of the facial contour while combating visible signs of ageing and helping to correct the skin tone with its pearlescent effect.
