“IT ’S DEFINITELY NOT YOUR STANDARD IN-AND-OUT SALON, BUT A COMPLETELY BESPOKE, PERSONALISED EXPERIENCE FROM AN UTTERLY CHARMING EXPERT.”

SKIN-DEEP SALVATION WITH CHELSÉE LEWIS TANI BURNS PUTS HER FACE IN THE CARE OF THERAPIST-TO-THESTARS CHELSÉE LEWIS FOR SPARKLINGLY FESTIVE SKIN.

Having a facial treatment is a luxury both in time and spend. But, for those who give any particular care to their youthful visage and general wellbeing, it’s a nobrainer. Given the opportunity to indulge in a little skin treat, I visited award-winning facialist Chelsée Lewis at her oasis of a salon in Mayfair. Her name is whispered among the beauty elite, and she’s worked with the likes of Stella McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow, Suki Waterhouse and Erin O’Connor, likely for the Zen-like pampering she provides, but ultimately for the results. And, well, if it’s good enough for them… I booked myself in for Le Visage, her famous signature facial, a deep-cleansing treatment with a micro-peel that helps to speed up skin renewal, even skin tone and soften lines and wrinkles. The exact serums and masks used were tailored to what she saw on my skin on the day – faced with a Londoner-in-thethroes-of-winter visage, she fed it with everything in her arsenal to fight against the plagues of dryness and pollution. ‘The pollution in London is so high, it’s something we are always having to battle with. On top of this, there’s the powerful blue light that we just can’t get away from in our TVs, laptops and mobile phones – it is stronger than UVA and UVB rays, so I would advise going hands-free as much as possible. The skin can tell us so much, even which ear you usually hold your mobile phone to.’ – Chelseé Lewis. Award-winning facialist There’s nothing I love more than an hour’s shut-eye for a massage, and – lucky me – Le Visage also includes Chelseé’s specialist facial massage, which is her key step to detoxifying and bringing oxygen and nutrients to the skin, while draining toxins and puffiness.

covers the face, neck, shoulders and arms – right down to the fingers – and the massage is aimed at pressure points alongside the photo-drainage massage, catering for overall wellbeing and bringing about a bright new complexion. After the treatment, I was able to speak with Chelseé about her tailored recommendations for me, both in terms of follow-up treatments (I’ll be looking at the Collagen Mask treatment, just £70) and general lifestyle (water, green juices, moisturising – keep feeding the skin!). It’s definitely not your standard in-andout salon, but a completely bespoke, personalised experience from an utterly charming expert. Returning to ‘the real world’ I felt, brighter, lighter and more confident – even completely bare-faced – and perhaps a little more respectful of the skin I was born into. (Le Visage is available for £130 for a 75-minute treatment.) Chelsée’s latest treatment, which you can book now, is the 3D HIFU, a non-surgical facelift treatment using high-intensity focussed Ultrasound to lift and tighten loose or sagging skin on the neck and face. The science? The 3D HIFU treatment focuses energy to stimulate the deep-support layers of the skin without causing damage to the skin surface. The treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen, resulting in a lifted, firmer and toned appearance of the skin. Basically, we’re talking about a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgery, backed by surgeons. Walk out into Mayfair, fantastically fresh-faced, without any downtime at all. Sounds like a dream. Prices from £995. For a full list of all treatment available at Chelseé Lewis, visit www.chelseelewis.co.uk
