Designed specifically to address dull and tired complexions, this energising facial breathes new life to skin by replenishing it with hyaluronic acid and oxygen. It first begins with thorough cleansing before a diamond peel exfoliation is conducted to decongest pores and soften comedones. Your therapist then performs a light extraction, followed by the application of Jet Peel using saline water to keep acne-causing bacteria at bay.

Next, your skin is treated to a cool oxygen mist which revives sluggish cell metabolism to kickstart healthy cellular turnover. A blend of customised serums is then infused into your skin using an oxygen stream to boost absorption for plump and supple skin. An O2 Detox Vacuum ensues to stimulate lymphatic drainage and reduce puffiness. Finally, enjoy a relaxing and firming facial massage which tones the complexion and enhances microcirculation so you emerge with a well-rested glow. For more information, visit
