Whether you are considering a complete skin transformation or an urgent hydration boost, the following treatments are offered by Hong Kong’s best and most indulgent beauty salons, so you can be sure your skin will look young, beautiful, and refreshed.
1. Anti-Ageing Skin Treatment
One of the most common types of facial treatments is the anti-ageing facial treatment. The primary purpose of the anti-ageing treatment is to fight wrinkles and give you a younger look. This treatment is designed to brighten up dull skin and improve the skin’s complexion. Some of the benefits of anti-ageing skin treatment include:

2. Hydrating Facial
Another popular skincare treatment, especially during the summer, is a hydrating facial. It is a treatment created to give profound hydration and restore the skin cells and tissues’ deep layers. Hydrating facials are fantastic for boosting collagen, elastin, and cell generation. Please note that this type of treatment also improves blood flow circulation to the skin.
This treatment is suitable for everyone who has, consciously or not, dehydrated skin. When the skin is more oily than usual and looks lifeless, the skin is probably dry.

3. Anti-Acne Treatment
If you suffer from acne breakouts, sometimes over-the-counter products might not work alone. People with clogged pores usually have breakouts, which means getting a facial treatment can be an excellent option. There are different types of treatments you can choose to unclog pores and reduce redness and inflammation. These skincare procedures can leave the skin healthier. The primary purpose of a facial is to have the skin clean by exfoliating and unclogging through extractions.
4. Oxygen Facials
If you are looking for a non-medical procedure to make the skin look bright and healthy, oxygen facials are a fantastic option. The body cells need oxygen to flourish, so when the cells are entirely oxygenated, they look glowing and lively. Every spa has a different process to perform an oxygen facial. The aesthetician will commonly cleanse and exfoliate the face and then deliver high pressurized oxygen to the skin. This skincare treatment has many benefits, including:
- Increases collagen production
- Speeds up cells recovery
- Detoxifies the skin cells
- Improves uneven skin tone
- Instant results
