2/8 Cellu M6 Revolution Facial at the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong
Give your complexion two hours of total TLC with the Cellu M6 Revolution Facial, a natural and non-invasive treatment that promises instant results.
This facial uses a gentle, mechanical stimulation technique to reactivate your skin’s cellular metabolism, boosting its production of new collagen and hyaluronic acid—which in turn helps eliminate fine lines, saggy skin, double chins and dull complexions. Factor in an extra collagen mask for an even greater moisture boost and you can be guaranteed firmer, smoother skin and a clearer, plumper complexion after just one session.
Price: HK$3,500 on Monday-Thursday, HK$3,780 on Friday-Sunday and public holidays

5/8 Contour at Flawless
Whilst expert cosmetics artistry can take care of makeup contouring for your face, this powerful 100-minute body treatment will ensure that your figure gets effectively toned and contoured too.
Utilising French brand Algotherm’s marine-powered skincare line (featuring pure seaweed, which is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and essential fatty acids), this treatment promises to eliminate toxins, improve circulation, drain away excess fluids, and reduce the appearance of cellulite by breaking down fatty deposits through the lymphatic system. You can expect to feel slimmer, smoother and firmer after just one session – the ideal treatment for boosting your body confidence before slipping into that show-stopping ball gown.

6/8 Lymphatic Drainage Massage at Plateau Spa, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong
For the ultimate convenience, why not get your treatment at our ball venue itself—the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, which just so happens to be home to one of the city’s most luxurious spas.
Opt for an intensive 90-minute Lymphatic Drainage Massage, which has been specifically designed to activate the lymphatic system and improve blood circulation. This detoxifying treatment uses moderate to firm pressure and long, flowing massage strokes to reduce uncomfortable and unsightly bloating and fluid retention. The result? You’ll feel much lighter, leaner and limber… and in perfect shape for tackling the dancefloor with gusto.

7/8 Super-Lift Haute Couture Facial at The Peninsula Spa, Peninsula Hong Kong
Celebrities like Claudia Schiffer and Princess Charlene of Monaco have been known to fly especially to Monte Carlo to receive a signature facial from famed beauty expert Margy Lombard – but thankfully, you can get a slice of Margy’s magic somewhat closer to home with The Peninsula Spa’s Super-Lift Haute Couture Facial.
This 90-minute treatment utilises Margy’s highly-potent, collagen-rich masks, which are applied after algae patches have been gently massaged into your face – resulting in an immediate reduction in fine lines, and a smoother, more radiant complexion all-round. The treatment finishes with a divine neck and shoulder massage, ensuring you’ll leave feeling – and looking – every bit as relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated as possible.
