DEFY GRAVITY

A New Zealand First | Exclusive to Skinography

Hailed by countless celebrities worldwide like Meghan Markle, Kate Moss & Keira Knightly as their go-to Red carpet & Royal wedding skin prep. This innovative and renowned European technique offered by only a handful of Facialists worldwide, some of which are well known cult celebrity Facialists like Nichola Joss in London & Danna Omari, the founder of Noy Skincare in New York City.

Kate has since travelled to Los Angeles to train under internationally acclaimed Russian specialist Yakov Gershkovich, in his The Sculptural Facial Massage technique. This practice involves Osteopathy, Cranialsacral, Deep Tissue as well as Lympatic drainage philosophies.

Kate is currently the only Facialist in New Zealand to hold the advanced level certification in The Sculptural Facial Massage technique.

The Buccal Technique restructures, sculpts and redefines the jawline + cheekbones to create a chiseled effect. Touted as the ultimate facelift alternative without going under the knife.

The Buccal Technique removes tension & stress in muscle tissue by softening + strengthening the muscle fibers. Facial muscles are manipulated by massaging deep inside the cheek and jaw area to sit higher, creating a more lifted structure + defined facial contours. Lymphatic drainage effectively removes toxins, draining and eliminating puffiness + fluid retention while increasing blood circulation. This encourages more nutrition rich & oxygenated blood to flow freely, feeding the skin cells + muscle tissue, improving regeneration + restoration of skin and facial tissues. Tighten sagging skin and wind back the years.

Relax while this 60 minute High-end hands-on lifting treatment radically changes your skin tone and texture. You will experience a total anti-aging facial workout, resulting in an even and more relaxed face that rests in a more lifted position with diminished facial lines and plumped to perfection, which can last up to three days, and even longer.

How does it work?

Did you know you have 57 muscles above the collarbone?

Your skin is first prepared + cleansed with a gentle cleansing milk eliminating any surface debris. We then drench the skin with lush organic & unrefined Shea butter + Macadamia oil, deep massage movements using pressure point and lymphatic drainage to sculpt, contour, and enhance the face including cheekbones and jawline using firm, gua sha-like massage of the external facial muscles. Kate will perform a range of lifting and sculpting movements- think vigorous toning movements and high energy whipping strokes - to boost blood circulation and collagen production. De-stressing muscle tissue allows features to become stronger and skin more vibrant. Flushed with blood and nutrients, from there the massage turns buccal.

Inside Job

With a pair of surgical gloves we begin the buccal technique inside of the mouth, lips and jawline where mimical muscles are deeply massaged and tension released. The muscles are sculpted + toned using precise movements. You will immediately feel more open, lighter & deeply relaxed.

The result? Your skin will have a soft rosy glow to it, cheeks appear lifted, deliciously smooth + contoured. You will walk away from the experience with plumped cheekbones and a less tight, chiseled jawline.

What results can you expect after one session?

Say "Aah": this Meghan Markle-approved face workout is all you need!

Radiant, plump, glowing skin for sure, and the added benefit of relaxed, bouncy, fuller + firmer muscles and sculpted contours. You won't nod off, but your skin will look instantly tighter and brighter. Results are cumulative so it's important to continue regular weekly sessions until you achieve your desired goal and then continue with monthly maintenance treatments.

Performed exclusively by Skinography founder, using High-end hands-on lifting and contouring from industry veteran Kate Michelmore.

THE CHAKRA SYSTEM IS THE SYMBOLIC PRESENTATION OF ENERGIES WHICH EXIST IN THE BODY INFLUENCED BY THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND. 

At Skinography, we draw on Ayurveda, a 5,000 year-old healing tradition from India, that helps us balance our chakras - 7 spinning wheels of energy - that affect our health, well-being and beauty.

“Let us guide you on a sensory journey.“

We use our senses to explore the world around us. By using your intuition, your senses will help you discover the chakra that you should focus on during your session. While you can work with all 7 chakras at anytime, it is helpful to focus on one chakra at a time. Once you discover which chakra you will explore, we will include a series of wellness rituals to help you connect to that center and find balance. Your focus areas are constantly changing so each sensory journey will be unique and can be focused on as often as you like.


Our Signature facial + massage help you to awaken those energies for the most balanced state of mind, body and soul.

90Min Facial | $250

60Min Massage | $145

90Min Massage + Crown Ritual | $185

+ includes your chosen LUNAR Chakra Atomiser to take home worth $30.

Your journey will begin with by discerning which of the chakras we will explore and balance.

Our opening Muladhara ritual is ideal during periods of change or disharmony. It combines a cleansing smoke ceremony, specific affirming meditative sound healing and deep slow cleansing massage using organically grown botanicals oils, hand blended with the corresponding chakra oils. Together, they induce a deep sense of stillness and connection, leaving you feeling physically and emotionally grounded.

This enlightening and balancing ritual includes focused marma point facial massage techniques helping to pave the way for a more peaceful, clearer and ‘knowing’ state of mind. Relaxing the nervous system, harmonising and increasing the flow of energy.

Heart chakra warming massage with Rose and Jasmine oils, and cananga ‘breath of peace’ meditation. Flowing warm, crystal infused rose oil, known for its spiritual and healing qualities precedes the focused heart work.This loving ritual includes a rose quartz crystal chest massage followed by deep inhalations with healing damascena rose otto placed over the heart. A sense of harmony is restored, leaving you feeling at one with yourself and those around you.

The crown is then anointed with warm flowing aromatic oil, the head gently massaged using traditional Indian head massage, blessing each chakra prior to a hot towel wrap - a unifying sequence that channels energy from the heart of the earth to the higher self, encouraging reconnection with one’s source.

Skinside out.

Your skin is a mirror of what is going on inside your body, so if you're consuming nutrient-dense foods, vitamins and antioxidants, that glow from within is going to shine through and your skin will express health. The skin is the largest organ in the body and often reflects the internal health of the body, particularly our gut health. For instance, inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and can represent an issue with poor gut health.

The health of your gut influences more than just your stomach, In fact, it’s your body’s wellbeing machine – home to trillions of microorganisms responsible for 70 per cent of your immune system. So it’s no wonder that if you’re feeling a bit ‘off,’ your gut is likely out of whack.
