A range of treatments are available but, in our books, the following two treatments are the absolute gold standards for beauty treatments. For pure indulgence, the Crystal Cryotherapy Facial combines hot and cold, using exfoliation, a jade crystal roller, hot towels, a modelling mask and frozen moisturiser. For sculpting and lifting, the Sculpt and Define Lymphatic Facial, is the way to go. Using exfoliants, peels and a thermal moulding face mask, the facial muscles are prepared and then lymphatic movements are used to visibly contour the face and neck. When it comes to the best facials in Sydney, these are our sorts of treatments.
