4 Unique Luxury Facials to try in Hong Kong.
With its abundance of luxury spas, Hong Kong is at no shortage of pampering me-time spots for the urban city dweller. Plan your wellness escape and indulge in one of the finer things in life—a premium facial. Whilst we’re all accustomed to home skincare routines and weekly face masks, there are some treatments which are just better done in-person by a specialist.
What’s more, some facials may even require specific equipment and machinery to prepare for more in-depth treatments. Here are four unique luxury facials in Hong Kong to try.

Escape city life with the brand’s Tseung Kwan O branch, nestled in Crowne Plaza hotel, where the spa takes you outdoors to a serene luxury hut-like treatment room. Opt for something a little different with Sense of Touch’s The Buccal Facial. Known as the facial which Duchess Megan Markle received on the day before her wedding, The Buccal Facial works a youthful, rejuvenating glow, by massaging the skin from the inside out. Using the hands to massage from the inner gums, therapists massage the cheeks to remove toxins and fluids which typically cause puffiness and congestion. It also brings relaxation to the jaw muscle, with plumper lips and smoother facial lines as a result of the increased blood flow and collagen production.
