Sculptress at Berida Day Spa – Taking The Sting Out Of Anti-Aging


Do you remember a time when you didn’t know what kale was? We do. It wasn’t so long ago. Or burpees? What about ‘dabbing’? (we still don’t get this one and we don’t want to).


Then there are those awkward moments when you’re with a group of gal pals and someone announces that “Sally Henderson’s new ‘baby-blonde ombrè lob’ looks amazing” and you’re thinking to yourself, am I the only one who has no freakin’ idea what language that was? But you nod and smile anyway…. and then Jen, good old Jen, pipes up with, “What’s an Ombrèlob” and, in that instant, you could just kiss gorgeous, brave, inquisitive Jen, smack bang on the lips.


Yep, we all need a Jen in our lives. Someone to ask the “silly” questions.

When The Fold team heard about Sculptress, the brand new Day Spa at Berida Hotel in Bowral, offering state-of-the-art, injection/botox free, anti-aging techniques, we just knew we had to do a bit of investigating and just like Jen, ask the questions you need answers to. No smooching required.


So, let’s talk HIFU, Fat Freezing and CooLifting. Yep, they’re things!


HIFU? Is that like Kung-Fu?

No, it’s not. HIFU, or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is non-surgical, collagen stimulating technology that offers a natural alternative to injectable fillers. In other words, HIFU is Botox without the needles. Sculptress recommends HIFU for; Tightening of the neck and jawline; Improving the appearance of hooded eyelids and droopy eyes; Contouring mid-face; Reducing fine lines and wrinkles. In essence, HIFU offers a scalpel-free facelift with minimal discomfort, no downtime and can be done and dusted in as little as an hour for a full-face treatment.

Fat Freezing (or if you’re into science-y stuff, Cryolipolysis).

So, this one sounds, a) made up and b) chilly. If you’re visualising an upright, space-age tank-like device that fills with dry-ice, placing you into a cryogenic state, waking in the year 2033 with 21% body fat and an ability to time travel... you’d be wrong. But points for imagination! No, fat freezing is actually an insanely simple process that targets pockets of fat on the stomach, arms, back, inner thighs and even your double chin! If you’ve ever considered liposuction, then Fat Freezing is your new best friend. Cryolipolysis destroys fat cells by freezing them at up to -10ºc. Your body’s very clever lymphatic system does the rest. While there is some initial discomfort (suction and cold), the area of the body being treated quickly becomes numb, making Fat Freezing virtually pain-free.

CooLifting – The 5-minute boost your skin is begging for!

Fare thee well, winter skin! Temperatures are rising and your skin needs quenching! Treat yourself to a CooLifting treatment with your next luxurious facial at Sculptress. CooLifting is a facial rejuvenation treatment that delivers results in just five minutes… did we mention it zaps wrinkles too?! This innovative new treatment uses hyaluronic solution to plump out and hydrate the skin and it gives immediate results. Going beneath the skin’s surface using a funky little gun-like device, CooLifting penetrates the dermis treating the cause of fine lines and wrinkles. The Sculptress girls will finish this treatment off with a relaxing facial massage. Um, yes thanks.

As well as these three awesome services, Sculptress at Berida Day Spa continue to offer traditional spa treatments including massage, facials, tinting and waxing…. but we figure if you’re gonna pop in for a brow wax you might as well freeze your tuckshop arms into submission at the same time. We’re all for multi-tasking!


Now that you know all about the high-tech treatments on offer over at Sculptress at Berida Day Spa, the only thing left to do is give the very lovely, Victoria and Meredyth a buzz and have a chat with them about your beauty goals. And the next time you’re hanging with your crew, clue them in on your new beauty vocab. Knowledge is power – and if it means no one is sticking themselves in the face with nasty toxins, all the better!

The Fold Loves - Ice Cream!

Who doesn't love an old school ice cream in a cone! Imagery of our childhood, holidays and memories of that special treat on a sunny summer's day. For a while there it felt like the traditional ice cream had disappeared, with ice blocks and every possible flavour of paddle pop taking centre stage.  But it seems tha...
