Pamper Yourself: 5 Of The Most Luxurious Facials In Hong Kong
Is your skin calling out for a shot of some serious TLC? Make the most of premium skincare products, advanced technology, expert techniques and Zen-inducing surrounds by indulging in one of the most luxurious facials in town; after all, we all deserve a little extra pampering sometimes.
1/5 Second Skin Facial at the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong
Get ready to propel your pampering into the 21st century with this high-tech facial, which promises to offer a ground-breaking, non-invasive alternative to surgical fillers.
This unique treatment utilises electrospun fibre patches that comprise 80% hyaluronic acid (acclaimed for its intense hydrating properties); these patches are then strategically applied to the face as a mask to combat fine lines, wrinkles, skin damage and other signs of ageing.
Whilst 60 and 90-minute versions are available, opt for the 120-minute version of the treatment—which also includes the use of an electroporation machine to help ingredients penetrate deeper into your skin, plus an additional cocktail d’actits regeneration and collagen mask—to reap its full benefits. Plumper, lifted and more luminous skin, this way.
Price: HK$6,300 on Monday-Thursday, HK$7,060 on Friday-Sunday and public holidays

2/5 Y Lift Intensive Facial at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong
The clue is in the name—this treatment is designed to deliver intensive brightening, moisturising and line-smoothing effects in just 80 minutes, with the help of advanced skincare range 111Skin, which was developed by leading plastic surgeon Dr. Yannis Alexandrides.
Clinically-proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, the treatment uses special ball applicators that utilise the brand’s unique Black Diamond Nanotechnology to massage active ingredients deep into the skin. Coupled with firming massage techniques and a face and neck mask, you can expect to see a beautifully soft, more supple and visibly lifted complexion post-treatment.
