Months of working from home may have left you in dire need of a massage. But if you ask Pietro Simone what kind of treatment he recommends, it may not be what you expect.
The 35-year-old disruptor in the beauty industry launched his own skincare line, Pietro Simone Skincare, in the United Kingdom in April 2019, along with specialized spa services. His luxe line, Prestige, followed seven months later. He debuted the products and services in the U.S. at the Greenwich Hotel’s Shibui Spa in Manhattan in the fall of 2019, and thanks to an alliance with Meadowood Napa Valley, his products and services are now available in the Bay Area.
His specialty: deep tissue facial massages. Yes, you read right. Be prepared, it’s not your average massage, and feeling intense pressure along your face and cheeks takes some getting used to, but the glow on your skin afterward is a testament to the technique and the products.
The following services are now available on Meadowood Spa’s menu:
Billed as Meadowood’s most luxurious and transformative facial for the ultimate anti-aging infusion. This is a regenerative high-tech facial treatment that works on lymphatic drainage, improving muscular tone, oxidative stress and tissue acidosis, all focused on anti-aging. A high-potency blend of peptides helps lift, nourish and promote healthy hydration. This is a nonaggressive anti-aging facial.
An intensive moisture-restoring treatment, encompassing Pietro Simone’s signature deep tissue technique and layer method. Science-led custom formulas are meant to cushion and boost moisture levels. This anti-aging facial focuses on hydration and skin-saving nutrients, while also helps to increase elasticity and promote collagen production.
Multi Refine and Sculpt:
A skin-resurfacing treatment that comprises Pietro Simone’s unique signature organic cotton thread exfoliation method and signature deep tissue technique. This anti-aging facial has a signature spotlight on multi-phase deep exfoliation, with the goal of creating smoother-looking healthy skin.
