Warkworth Medispa: Less than an hours drive from Auckland is the historic village of Warkworth and one of the town’s best kept Luxury Spa secrets… the Warkworth Medispa!
It can be found nestled in a beautiful picturesque spot overlooking the banks of the Mahurangi River which is perfect place for a relaxing spa treatment.
We were especially looking forward to experiencing one of the Spa’s Luxury treatments the MCeutic Renovation Radicale by Thalgo.
Spa owner Becky Varty is originally from London where she was an international trainer for Thalgo having travelled throughout the world teaching spa treatments in many amazing 5 star spa complexes.
We were obviously in very good hands! The first stage of our treatment was a personal skin analysis, undertaken by our therapist who then gave us a detailed report on the condition of our facial skin. She then selected what grade of treatment would be best suited for us.
Our treatment began with a renovating peel for the regeneration of the skin. This rids the skin of dead skin cells and excess keratin and to prepare the skin for the next step.
The second part of the treatment was the Mésolift Marin infusion of cellular regenerating ingredients and hyaluronic acid, designed to treat surface irregularities, blemishes and scarring, to reveal a brighter, clearer and more refined skin.
This included a draining massage with pressure points to boost skin detoxification and stimulation.
The last stage was a mask treatment that resurfaces and exfoliates the skin for a young, restructured and perfectly smooth epidermis. It was during this application that we enjoyed a fabulous shoulder and arm massage which was simply divine!
Our therapist finished by applying a cream serum resurfacer and an SPF50+ cream to prolong the effect of the treatment and protect skin from UV rays.
Afterwards our Warkworth Medispa therapist provided us individually with a Skin Care Prescription for MCeutic products to use at home designed to prolong the effectiveness of our treatment and offered some very sound skincare advice.
But does it really work? Absolutely! You only have to look in the mirror to see the difference. It really is amazing! It takes 3 days for the full effects of the treatment to become apparent, but we could see the results immediately.
Our treatment took about an hour, and Becky recommends another three treatments, a week apart, for longer lasting results. If you are looking to refresh your facial skin and look younger then this is surely for you!
