ANGSANA SPA'S AGE-DEFYING FACIAL
This facial (right; HK$1,150) harnesses Parisian skincare brand Anne Semonin's unique cryotherapy technology to reduce fine lines and other signs of ageing. The 60-minute treatment, followed by 30 minutes of refreshments and relaxation, starts with a head, neck and shoulder rub using the spa's signature dry massage techniques. The therapist then applies a rich cream mask designed to restore the skin and calm sensitivity with an algae and kaolin clay formula. An Express Radiance Ice Cube is then used to reduce puffiness and improve skin elasticity while leaving a surface-tensing film for smoother make-up application. 3400 1052, www.angsanaspa.com

 

DR MURAD AHA RAPID EXFOLIATOR ANTI-AGEING FACIAL
Iyara Beauty aims to turns back the clock with an exfoliating facial (HK$950) that leaves skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Glycolic acid works to remove dead skin cells while a blend of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and hydrators soothe and revitalise. When performed in a series, the therapist will gradually increase the percentage of glycolic acid with each treatment. This helps to accelerate cell turnover, leading to improved skin texture and tone. The spa will recommend suitable Dr Murad products for home use. It also offers a 25 per cent discount for first-time visitors. 2545 8638 (Central), 2545 8637 (Wan Chai), www.iyarabeauty.com
