ELLE Beauty Black Book: Face Off

Five of our fave facials to transform your complexion now

1. DrSpa

ELLE Recommends: DrSpa Lift, $480 for 90 minutes.
A treatment that fights loose, sagging skin for a lifted and more contoured profile. It uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to boost collagen production, minimise water retention and even increase metabolism at the skin’s deeper layers. To finish, a gel mask is applied to enhance skin’s micro-circulation and help with its regeneration. The result? More defined features and a radiant. youthful-looking complexion.

2. Estetica

ELLE Recommends: GenXSkin Facial, $358 for 90 minutes.
Reverse the signs of ageing with this treatment that makes use of products from French brand Ericson Laboratoire to repair and restore skin. The unique bit lies in the double mask application of a bio-cellulose mask and a cream mask, which boosts the absorption of the active ingredients. There’s also a mask for the neck area, which is a spot we often neglect. After just one session, your skin should look clearer, radiant and more toned.

3. IDS Clinic

ELLE Recommends: IDS Hydrotherapeutics Treatment, $198 for 45 to 60 minutes.
Get brighter skin in a flash with this comprehensive four-step treatment. It starts with a Hydrafacial, where a specially calibrated water-jet stream device is used to gently yet effectively cleanse the skin. This is followed by an ultrasonic cleansing to clear and purify clogged pores. Then vitamin C is driven deep into the skin via iontophoresis (that’s electric current, to you and me) to help repair and rejuvenate the skin. The cherry on the cake is a finishing mask specifically chosen for your skin type.

4. Jet Concepts

ELLE Recommends: Jet PR3 Facial, $238 for 60 minutes.
PR3 refers to the intended effects of this facial: Protection, reparation, regeneration and revitalisation. Using the salon’s signature Jet Stream machine, your skin gets intensely cleansed and prepped - pores are unclogged and dead skin cells removed. Then a dual light machine called the Jet Dual Ray blasts you with red and infrared light energies to repair skin from the inside-out. To finish off, a liquid laser essence is applied to boost skin’s regenerative abilities. Skin absolutely glows after.
