BIOTEC Tecniques

There are 5 different BIOTEC treatments to augment the Spa Facial. Each is described below along with the benefits of each treatment type.


The Ultrasonic spatula uses a highly effective Piezoelectric energy causing 27,000 vibrations per second through a quartz/ceramic head. These rapid vibrations push skin impurities to the skin surface and cause any dead skin cells to become dislodged. The vibrating hand piece is used to deep cleanse and gently exfoliate the epidermis.


  • Deep cleansing
  • Gently exfoliates surface impurities and pollutants
  • Gentler alternatives to traditional microdermabrasion methods of skin exfoliation
  • Stimulates collagen production to minimize the appearance of fine lines
  • Accelerate blood circulation to aid the healing process
  • Minimizes appearance of pores and smooths fine lines


Microcurrent is the only aesthetic technology that can physically firm and tone the skin, gently re-educating the facial muscles with small pulses of microcurrent. Each pulse mirrors the body’s own natural current, stimulating the skin’s own biological energy. The treatment tones and firms, visibly minimizes lines and improve contours.


  • Dramatic lifting effect on the facial contours
  • Re-educates and strengthens muscle memory
  • Increase the production of collagen and elastin
  • Promotes and improves the micro-circulation
  • Firms and tightens slackened facial muscles Significantly improves the facial contours


Galvanic is a two-step treatment that works synergistically with positive and negative charged ions to propel similarly charged high potency actives deeper into the skin. Helps minimize the symptoms of ageing bought on by stress and tiredness – fine lines, dullness, photo-ageing, sensitivity and blemishes.


  • Results in the skin appearing completely refreshed and rejuvenated
  • Rebalances and normalizes the skin, preventing any undue redness post treatment
  • Improves skin clarity and reduces the look of blemishes Softens the appearance of fine lines
  • Eliminates a tired, dull looking skin caused by ageing or stress


LED Light Therapy uses wavelengths of visible light, that differ according to color, and penetrate the skin at variable depths. LED light triggers biological processes within the skin and body, stimulating the cells, glands, nerves and muscles through unique frequency vibrations, that can help promote skin rejuvenation, to normalize and rebalance the skin. Within this treatment, Red or Blue light is applied, penetrating the deeper layers of the skin, delivering a bio stimulatory action.


  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Increases cellular renewal
  • Energizes and boosts micro-circulation


  • Delivers a powerful anti-bacterial effect to minimize skin bacteria
  • Anti-inflammatory and reduces redness
  • Skin Calming


Oxygen therapy uses powerful bursts of compressed air to infuse the skin with a combination of 95% pure oxygen with selected high potency actives. The active ingredients penetrate through the natural space between the epidermal skin cells into the deeper layers of the skin. Concentrated air pressure on skin tissue visibly plumps out lines, increases skin firmness and hydration, when used in conjunction with active skincare ingredients.


  • Visibly plumps and smooths the appearance of fine lines Leaves the skin feeling tighter and firmer
  • Restores elasticity
  • Stimulates tissue repair and healing
  • Rebalances the skin
  • Results in a more radiant, healthy-looking skin

Spa facial aftercare tips

The following advice will ensure you get the most from your spa facial and minimise the chances of experiencing any irritation after your treatment:

Avoid any further skin treatments for at least 48 hours after your facial (increase this to 72 hours for exfoliant products and scrubs)

Avoid excessive sunlight and heat sources (such as saunas) for a minimum of 48 hours

Try to keep makeup application to a bare minimum for the first 24 hours following your facial – allow your skin to breathe and take full advantage of the treatment

Drink plenty of water to aid the flushing of toxins from your skin

You can purchase the products used during your facial enabling you to repeat the regime recommended by your therapist at home

Facials which use laser technology or chemicals have their own specific aftercare requirements – always follow the advice provided by your therapist

Facial Questions

What is a facial treatment?

A facial is a beautifying skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates dead skin cells, hydrates and moisturises the skin, and treats common skin concerns with a custom regime.  Facial treatments are one of the most popular treatments for spa-goers. Facials are designed to boost the immediate appearance and overall health and longevity of the skin. 

What are the benefits of facial treatments?

The pampering experience of a beautifying facial can provide multiple health and beauty benefits. 

A regular facial is ideal for maintaining good skin health and can leave you with a radiant complexion. There are many types of spa facial to choose from. For example, some aid skin elasticity, preventing sagging, wrinkles and other tell-tell ageing signs, while others help to combat dry skin ailments or acne.

Even the lucky few of you with perfect skin will enjoy the indulgent pleasure of a facial, which utilizes gentle massage techniques. Facial massages are not only relaxing; they also boost circulation and blood flow, helping the skin on your face to self-heal while re-energizing your mind.

What should I expect during a spa facial treatment?

Every ELEMIS Pro Facial incorporates the power of 3 essential steps for optimum Skin Wellness.

The ELEMIS signature double cleanse has been supercharged. Powered by our Ultrasonic Resurfacing Technology, the triple cleanse provides hyper focused deep cleaning and resurfacing to unlock healthy, glowing skin from within.

Step 1 – Pro-Cleanse Treatment

ELEMIS signature multi-step cleasing method with gentle extractions that removes build up and daily pollutants, purifies pores, and prepare the skin for the next steps in treatment.

Step 2 – Ultrasonic Resurfacing

27,000 vibrations per second draw out impurities, gently resurface and helps stimulate collagen to unlock healthy glowing skin from within.

Step 3 – Shape & Sculpt Facial Massage

ELEMIS expert hands improve skin health, boost circulation and drainage for alifted, more sculpted appearance.

How should I prepare my skin for a facial treatment?

While you can continue to follow your usual skin routine ahead of your spa visit, you should avoid exfoliating masks and scrubs several days before your facial to prevent the risk of raw, or otherwise uncomfortable, skin caused by over-treatment.

You should try to arrive for your facial makeup-free. While the therapist may be happy to remove makeup for you, this extra step will need to be completed within your overall treatment time. Be sure to arrive promptly too, to get the very most from your appointment.

Are skin breakouts (i.e. spots) common after undergoing a facial?

Some clients report the appearance of new spots within 48 hours after a facial. This can be a fairly common reaction – it simply indicates your skin is detoxifying itself, and a glowing complexion should soon follow.

While spots are far from guaranteed, you may want to schedule your facial a minimum of four to five days before any important event in order to allow your skin plenty of time to recover.

Are you a Candidate for BIOTEC Spa Facials?

ELEMIS BIOTEC Spa Facials are amazing and are the best facials available combining ELEMIS hands-on techniques with the latest in technology to stimulate and rejuvenate the skin. However, under certain conditions, a BIOTEC Spa Facial may not be the best solution for you, and you should have a Traditional ELEMIS Spa Facial (without the BIOTEC technology).

Listed below are the ELEMIS BIOTEC Spa Facials we offer, and the conditions that could react adversely to this treatment. An X indicates you are NOT a candidate for a BIOTEC treatment.

* A doctor’s note is required to receive an ELEMIS BIOTEC Spa Facial if you have a heart condition
