Elemis, the only professional British spa and skincare brand to invest extensively in Independent Clinical Trials on their facials, is proud to launch the NEW Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial designed by Noella Gabriel. A revolutionary advanced Anti-Ageing Treatment, NEW Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial is clinically proven to reduce the number of wrinkles by up to 94% and improve skin firmness by up to 57% after just one treatment.(i)

Including every mineral used across the whole Pro-Collagen range, this third facial treatment launch from Elemis completes the programme offering within their high performance Anti-Ageing facials. Set to receive global acclaim for its unprecedented efficacy results, the NEW Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial is empowered with precious minerals that play an important part in cell structure and cell communication: ultimately protecting and de-stressing the skin cells. The introduction of the conducting mineral Quartz along with the stimulus from Rhodochrosite, Malachite, Montmorillonite and Tourmaline, together re-energise and promote healthy cellular activity and revitalise tired and stressed skin cells.

The ageing process, which is accelerated through stress, sun damage and demanding lifestyles, slows down skin cell activity: it reduces collagen production over time, resulting in slackened, and older looking skin. The clinically proven Anti-Ageing marine extract, Padina Pavonica, features as a powerful booster for cell communication (stimulated by a rich cocktail of minerals) enabling efficient cell cohesion and improving skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. The cutting-edge formulations within the NEW Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial also support cell metabolism to promote Collagen and Elastin synthesis. Coupled with Laminaria Digitata and Red Coral to help increase oxygen levels in the skin, this advanced face and eye treatment allows skin to perform at its peak, improving cell respiration and cell regeneration, for a firmer, uplifted younger looking appearance after one treatment.

Elemis expert Noella Gabriel explains...

"We're proud of pioneering a facial that offers a scientific solution to skin ageing. With a unique treatment design and the introduction of precious minerals in our formulations, it is this secret combination that allows the NEW Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial to deliver powerful anti-ageing statistics. Elemis was one of the first spa brands to ever clinically trial a facial treatment. We're continuing to raise the bar with a facial that is proven to reduce the number of wrinkles by up to 94% and improve skin firmness by up to 57% after just one treatment.(i)"

ANTI-WRINKLE- NEW Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial

Clinical Trial 1 - Reduction in depth of wrinkle. Up to 94% reduction in number of wrinkles(i)

Number of wrinkles measured before and after the facial using Laser Profilometry Analysis on silicone imprints of the skin.

Clinical Trial 2 - Increase in Skin Firmness. Up to 57% improvement in skin firmness(i)

Firmness and elasticity of the skin measured before and after the facial using suction with a Cutometer. The machine gauges how long it takes for the skin to fall naturally back to its original position after suction is released.
