Remedial Facial Sculpting massage is what every person needs in their arsenal of monthly self care.
Working from the inside out, this treatment begins with releasing tightness and tension from around the chest, decolletage, shoulders and neck region - which often are the causes for jaw clenching, TMJ, grinding and facial distortions. Once these muscles are released, this therapy moves onto a systematic detoxification of the facial skin through lymphatic drainage, firm remedial muscle work in and around the jaw line, cheekbones, sinus region, eye orbital area, forehead and scalp. Your Facial Sculpting treatment then finishes with Facial Yoga tips and exercises on how to maintain muscle health, firmness and bounce.
This treatment is enormously helpful in assisting your bodies natural systems to work more efficiently to detoxify and bring more blood and oxygen flow to your skin. Both of which are super important for healthy vital facial skin that looks fresh, healthy and youthful.
That post holiday look and glow - Not only is Remedial Facial Sculpting massage deeply satisfying, it is designed to help you reduce puffiness and sagging around the face and eyes, slim down your jaw line, tighten and lift the appearance of the cheekbones, widen the appearance of the eye region and hydrate the skin.
At your first appointment of 90 minutes, your therapist will include LED Light Therapy as part of the treatment process to super charge the initial results. A further 4 treatments within the next 4 to 6 weeks will assist you with seeing faster long term changes. And for ongoing sculpted features we recommend Facial Sculpting once per month (60 minute treatment) supplemented with intermittent 30 minute LED Light Therapy sessions for optimal skin health, glow and plumpness.

aka ‘Natural Botox’
Natural Botox - Facial Rituals for Skincare, Skin Renewal & Spa Experience
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture or the more commonly used descriptive ‘Natural Botox’ is one of traditional Chinese medicine’s oldest practices.
The therapy of Facial Acupuncture assists with increasing collagen production, skin elasticity, skin tone and plumpness. It is a non-invasive skin treatment and requires no down time, naturally increasing your skin’s overall health and vitality - smoothing out fine lines, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness, sagging, dullness, de-hydration and skin texture.
Ongoing treatments that combine Facial Acupuncture, Gua Sha and Facial Rolling (with precious Jade stones), together with Facial Cupping or Derma Rolling (also known as Skin Needling) will improve skin collagen density and skin health and beauty.
The results of Facial Acupuncture are readily visible within days of treatment and is a must try treatment for anyone thinking about skin renewal and ant-ageing practices.
Dr Yvette Forbes (Acupuncture) is available through the week for facial acupuncture appointments at MO+ Bondi Junction clinic.

Why LED Light Therapy is the key to the kind of skin you’ve always wanted
Phototherapy, or light therapy, is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and is used in a variety of ways across many medical fields, including in more therapeutic environments like our own at MO+. Research has shown that light therapy can work to increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, reverse signs of sun damage, improve skin tone, as well as overall texture and clarity of the skin. Light therapy has also been shown to increase the natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin, working to create a more radiant and youthful complexion. In essence, the MO+ Light Therapy treatments works to improve and increase the cellular metabolism of the skin, helping in the repair, rejuvenation and replenishment of our clients complexions.
How Does Light Energy work?
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components.
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised or damaged cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. Blue, red and near-infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria. Red penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photo-biostimulation of fibroblasts. Near-infrared penetrates deepest and increases micro-circulation (tissue repair), decreases inflammation and attenuates pain.
LED Light Therapy and Beauty Facial Treatments at MO+
Light Therapy is often incorporated into our beauty treatments (Facial Sculpting and Facial Acupuncture) both as an added boost to skin health or as a stand alone treatment to maintain healthy glowing skin. As a stand alone treatment we recommend twice a week (30min session) for 6 weeks, then maintain with one session every four weeks.
