What is a Gold Facial?
Celebrities do some pretty outrageous treatments to enhance their looks. They endure Botox injections, cosmetic surgeries, and use expensive creams to maintain their youthful appearance. A new treatment being offered in spas and beauty centers recently is the 24K Gold Facial. While it sounds extravagant, it has some very desirable results for anyone who wants to be pampered. You don’t need to be a celebrity to feel like one.
Gold has always been known to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Many high end cream lines include gold in their ingredients. Combining gold with a facial is the logical next step for the ultimate in relaxation techniques.
The treatment is usually combined with exfoliation and massage for a truly luxurious experience. Sheets of 24 karat gold leaf are gently brushed onto the face of the patient in the same way gold may be brushed on to an art piece. Some of the benefits are said to include:
- Increase blood flow and circulation of the skin
- Improve skin elasticity
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Increase cell renewal
- Help with pigmentation
- Repair oxidation damage
- Remove toxins from the skin
- Slow collagen depletion
Nowadays you don’t have to leave the house to try the healing properties of gold for yourself. There are even home kits that are available online and from specialty stores that replicate the experience of a gold treatment, however it does lessen the pamper factor to have to do it yourself. It is rumored that Cleopatra herself partook in the practice of gold facials, but anyone can feel like royalty with such a unique spa experience. Check out your local boutique or spa to see if this non-invasive treatment is available in your area.
