Using advanced cryo technology, this express facial uses controlled cold air to naturally stimulate collagen production to leave skin plump and smooth. The cooling effect reduces puffiness and redness, and because the entire facial uses only air, you don’t need to worry about removing any makeup. The quick 15-minute treatment additionally burns up to 800 calories--there’s not a fresher facial treatment in Hong Kong.
