Here are four of the best facial treatments that are worth the splurge for your next spa date. Trust us, your skin will thank you.
1 Cinderella Facial at The Laser Boutique
What it is: This facial is done with Near Infrared Technology (NIR) using Nimue or RegimA skincare products. The products are all enriched with hydrating and soothing ingredients. The result: glowy, clear, moisturised skin.
Benefits: Near Infrared Technology (NIR) heats up the tissue underneath the skin, which helps to stimulate collagen production for tighter and firmer skin. In the beginning, the treatment is quite relaxing, however, the second half is the best part! It involves the NIR laser, which is not painful at all. Initially, you may experience a bit of discomfort, but its nothing unbearable. The heat will gradually increase, but your skin adjusts, and the results are ah-mazing!
Cost: From R900
Duration: 45 minutes
