Bring your facial skin back to life at Artepil, the best spa in Puerto Vallarta.

The word Kobido means "ancient way of beauty". According to legend, this method was for several centuries the favorite therapy of Japanese empresses, who seemed to have porcelain skin. This ancestral technique acts on the deepest layers of the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and acting on the facial nerves and subcutaneous musculature. This is achieved through the combination of a set of facial maneuvers performed by the hands of our experts at Artepil. 


The kobido facial goes from the skull to the neck. By performing the correct technique it will help you prevent wrinkles, eliminate toxins from the face, and it also has therapeutic effects and will recover your musculature. It is all based on the speed of the hands and fingers and how they alternate. Slow speeds to achieve relaxation and fast speeds to stimulate and achieve a lifting effect.
