Epion Aesthetics Treatment Flow + Contour, $280 for 90 mins
Who’s it catered for: Those with mature skin and fine lines.
Vogue‘s review: This exquisite treatment features the coveted Japanese ceramic gua sha tool, which not only releases heatiness but boosts blood flow and lymphatic drainage for a sculpted and radiant complexion. Prepare to be pampered as the treatment commences with a soothing welcome massage using lavender essential oil, followed by a double cleanse and a gentle peeling gel that softens your black and whiteheads. The gua shas are then expertly utilised to open the lymph nodes, paving the way for a 20-minute gua sha session that sculpts and lifts your face with gentle repeated movements. But the indulgence doesn’t stop there. The treatment also includes a luxurious 24K gold mask, cellular-boosting LED light therapy, and a hyaluronic acid infusion with Epion’s very own VEP machine for enhanced facial tone and contour. The cherry on top? A neck and shoulder massage that will leave you feeling relaxed, revitalised and glowing from head to toe.

Porcelain Skin ClearZ-Purity Treatment, $368 for 75 mins
Who’s it catered for: Those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Vogue‘s review: Porcelain Skin’s ClearZ-Purity Treatment helms advanced technology to provide a deep detox that is both effective and gentle enough for sensitive and acne-prone skin, promoting a healthy, clear complexion. This treatment starts off with a soothing double cleanse with one of Porcelain’s cleansers, selected by your facial therapist to suit your skin type. Skipping the harsh facial extractions that don’t bode well for sensitive skin, a unique 360 rotating tip is instead used to administer micro-jets of filtered water thin enough to penetrate the pores and flush out all buildup and congestion. A potent mix of botanicals from the Porcelain Botanical Sensitive Care Toner simultaneously soothes the skin throughout this process. Following suit is a mandelic acid peel, with its ability to boost cellular turnover and collagen production honed to unveil a soft, glowing complexion upon wash-off. A combination of vitamins is then fed via an oxygen spray to brighten and rejuvenate the skin. Finally, customised LED light therapy is used to stimulate cell repair and fortify skin barrier function. Walk out radiant and fresh-faced, with boosted defences against acne and hyperpigmentation. For an extra-comprehensive experience, opt to take Porcelain’s skin examination and to detect the issues in your skin’s biology in order to have the best experience tailored to you.

Om Aesthetics PicoGlam, $2,480 for 10 sessions
Who’s it catered for: Anyone who’s looking to improve their skin condition, from anti-ageing treatments to brightening and acne solutions.
Vogue‘s review: The merit in a customisable treatment means that its laser procedure would be one most suited for your skin. After a detailed consultation with Dr Neil Pawar who examines your skin concerns, a dedicated treatment will be agreed on. With three types of lasers in the works—a 300 picosecond laser, a long pulsed 755 nm alexandrite laser and a 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser—they come together to treat pigmentation, wrinkles and enlarged pores. As with all lasers, numbing cream is first applied before Dr Pawar begins the procedure. There are bouts of stinging as the lasers are applied, yet not entirely unbearable. After the first session, results are noticeable with the skin looking visibly brighter and clearer. Depending on how extensive the session goes, minimal downtime is to be expected—with some light scabbing showing up post-treatment. Of course, with all lasers, it’s optimal to keep up with following sessions to see desired, lasting results.
