Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel & Spa near Chester is one of the first spas in the UK andthe first spa in Cheshireto offer the innovativeElemis BIOTEC treatments. This range of seven supercharged facial treatments target specific skin needs for both women and men. Whether its signs of ageing, dull and tired, blemish-prone or even sagging skin, Elemis BIOTEC has it covered with visible results after just one treatment.

Delivered in 60 minutes, each BIOTEC facial combines a unique high-potency activator and specially designed Elemis Skin Lift Touch.  Using the power of hands-on therapy, the Skin Lift Touch softens and prepares the skin.  Significantly improving skin function, it enables it to convert energy from each technology and receive the actives more effectively, whilst re-balancing the skin's microflora. 

How does it work?
From UV damage, stress and age to illness and lifestyle choices, our skin is constantly put under strain, causing stressed and unbalanced complexion and a breakdown in elasticity, leading to the dreaded fine lines and wrinkles. These unresponsive cells in our skin need to be stimulated to boost performance and efficiency, enhancing the skin's ability to repair, renew and tone.

Elemis has combined its 25 years' of industry expertise and success to create seven, Elemis. Each facial contains powerful plant actives, peptides, anti-oxidants and essential oils, expertly formulated to penetrate deep into the skin and re-charge the cells' energy to boost responsiveness.

Numbers don't lie
After all the technology talk, does it actually work? Perhaps the most remarkable example of treatment success can be found in the Triple-Tec Anti-Wrinkle facial; women who were tested found:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles were reduced by 68 per cent after justonetreatment
  • 100 per cent felt that this was the best anti-wrinkle facial they had ever had
  • 100 per cent felt they would postpone surgery/Botox in favour of a course of facial treatments
