6 Game Changing Facials in Singapore to Up Your Skincare Regime

From deep cleansing to luxurious sake infused treatments, these top facials are actually worth spending your hard-earned money on!


A perfect pick-me-up for dull, tired and overworked skin, a facial done right can truly up your skincare game. Deciding where to get one though, is quite the battle in itself! No upselling and guaranteed TLC for both your skin and your mind - these are the top 5 facials to indulge in Singapore.

The Customised Deep Cleansing Facial at Ikeda Spa

Not all skin types and needs are the same, and this is recognised by the popular Customised Deep Cleansing Facial at Ikeda Spa. The treatment starts with an initial assessment of your skin and concerns, followed by an individually curated deep cleansing facial. Extraction on your mind? This facial begins with a deep-pore cleansing (gentle at that!) and exfoliation. Next, choose one aesthetic treatment add-on from a list that includes the E-Light Glow Booster and Aqua Acne Peel amongst others - all Japanese aesthetic technologies that promise instant results after your first session.

This is then followed by a massage style of your choice (soothing, lifting or relaxing). Facial massage is crucial to the process and helps promote blood circulation and drainage of toxins, while gently plumping the skin.

Finally, you get not one but a trio of IRÉN serums on a mask, that works to target your specific skin concerns. Results, you ask? Clean, healthy and glowing skin, that’s instantly visible after your treatment!

Bonus! For a short time, you can get the Customised Deep Cleaning Facial for only $138+ (U.P $ 210+).

Skin Luminosity Plus Facial at Derma Lab

Looking for radiance or brightening of skin? The highly regarded, Skin Luminosity treatment by Derma Lab was designed for it. Using the latest Dynamic Pulsed Light (DPL) technology, a mix of both Laser Power Source and IPL, this treatment is able to reach deep into the layers of your skin and effectively reduce pigmentation as well as even out skin tone. All that work on the epidermis stimulates collagen production, minimizing pores and also reducing fine lines.

And that’s not it! There is the added benefit of the Nutri-Oxygen Nano Mist therapy which delivers a gentle blast of Oxygen and mist of nutrients deep into your skin to hydrate and nourish it. High pressure of the oxygen pulverizes the nutrient solution to tiny, nanoparticles, so they are easily absorbed by the skin. The infusion of Oxygen, on the other hand, encourages cell and collagen regeneration as well as rejuvenates skin cells that have been exposed to pollutants and hence deprived of oxygen.

Completely non-invasive, painless and with no downtime, you can rest assured your skin will be visibly brighter, even-toned, hydrated and more supple!
