The Spa at Equinox has formally entered the gilded age with the launch of their 24 karat gold collagen mask. The luxe facial, which was introduced earlier this month, showcases the healing and regenerative powers gold has on the skin.
The Spa is located on the lower level of Equinox at the Franklin Street location where you will be shown to a locker room filled with all of the traditional spa amenities. Once you have changed into a robe, head on over to the waiting area where you can relax with a magazine before entering the treatment room.
Over the next hour, you will be treated to a detailed skin condition analysis followed by a customized facial and décolletage massage topped off with a gold collagen mask. If you have pigmentation problems, dry or flaky skin this is definitely the facial for you.
The aestheticians here are extremely knowledgeable about skin conditions and will tailor the treatment to your individual needs after a thorough analysis. My treatment started off with a mild exfoliation followed by some extractions, which were relatively painless, then some cleansing, moisturizing, and of course, the 24 karat gold collagen mask.
This mask is designed to help moisturize, firm, whiten and brighten the skin as the gold powder blocks free radicals which helps the skin regenerate quicker and fuller. One of the nicest parts of the treatment was the surprise foot massage at the end.
After just one treatment, my face felt firmer and fresher in only an hour. The gold collagen mask delivers nutrients deep below the skin, fighting the underlying causes of facial wrinkles and aging skin. It not only helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and existing signs of aging, but it is also designed to help prevent future wrinkles from forming.
For $165, this just might be your fastest way to a healthy more radiant complexion.
Equinox Fitness Club is located at 225 Franklin Street, Boston. (There is a second location in the Back Bay at 131 Dartmouth Street).
