Note: This list is strictly not in order.
1. Adonis Beauty
If Adonis was a person, they would be a senior in terms of their years of experience. Since it first opened its shutters in 1988, Adonis has quickly become Singapore’s favourite place to go to for facials as well as health and wellness treatment.
A facial session at Adonis includes being served a cup of herbal tea blend that amplifies the treatment you are about to receive. While you leisurely sip on your tea, a professional consultant will guide you through a Skin Analysis to determine your skin troubles. The consultant will then communicate your completed readings with an assigned aesthetician for a customised facial with products tailored to your needs.
Typically, a facial at Adonis consists of five steps. First up is cleansing using Adonis’ signature soft milk cleanser. This gentle product is thoroughly applied over your face, neck and décolletage for double-cleansing too. Next, comes the cold mist therapy where the impurities from deep within are softened for easier extraction. Right after comes the extraction where work is targeted on clogged pores. This process has been proven to hurt a lot lesser with the cold mist therapy. With all the nasty gunk out, a soothing step comes next to ease any redness or skin sensitivity.
At Adonis, you can count on them for a comfortable extraction session anytime.

2. Indulgence Beauty
Located at the heart of busy office workers, Indulgence Beauty can be found in a corner on the second level of International Plaza.

3. The Spa-Lon
The Spa-Lon prides themselves in their ATP38® treatment. So what exactly is it? The ATP38 is a Switzerland revolutionary device that stimulates the body’s ability to regenerate and repair itself through the aid of multi-coloured light. The ATP38 Lightwave treatment taps on collagen production and regulation of the melanin level for a more radiant-looking complexion.
The skin analysis conducted by a therapist measures the skin’s moisture level, texture, elasticity, and exposure to UV light. Through this, customers will be able to learn their skin type and problematic areas. Meanwhile, the 90-minute Marine Breeze Pollution Shield with ATP38 Lightwave treatment is an extraction facial which focuses on unclogging pores and revitalising the skin. Customers can expect deep cleansing and detoxification alongside sebum regulation and the brightening of complexion in this treatment.
Fun-fact: The special ‘cold lights’ featured in the ATP38 Lightwave device is actually developed by NASA!
The Photo Stimulation – a non-aggressive treatment – exposes the skin to different wavelengths of light, intensity and pulsations based on your specific skin needs. The LED lights penetrate deeper into the skin and have been proven to boost cellular activity by helping the skin repair itself better, which in turn improves skin condition.

4. Face Shower Bar
The Face Shower Bar is so easy to get to that you would have to be atrociously bad at directions to not reach it in one try.

The Quintessential is heavy on facial extraction in which it benefits congested and acne-prone skin the most. This process involves a skin analysis to determine the level of treatment required. Thereafter, the extraction session through the usage of metal tools will kick to a start.
Leave your face to the therapists who have personally undergone six months of training with Jenny and just take a nap while you are there. They are more than qualified to tailor the treatment to your skin’s needs.

Fingers are used during the extraction process with a pain level close to a zero. Cold compression patches are pressed on the freshly extracted area immediately to promote fast healing. These cold compression patches are all soaked in an in-house blend of essential oils in advance.

8. My Cozy Room Boutique Spa
Today, not all facial spas and clinics adopt the same generic all-white and brightly-lit aesthetic into their space. My Cozy Room Boutique Spa at Orchard Road is a textbook example of one. Sitting pretty on the second floor of a shophouse, this boutique spa takes on an olden Victorian look with vintage furniture and ornaments that look like they belong in a royal castle.
Don’t let the antique interior intimidate you from stepping into the spa because this award-winning boutique is dedicated to providing specially tailored beauty treatments for every skin type. My Cozy Room Boutique Spa is also highly raved amongst customers for offering the best extraction facial in Singapore.
The Premium Pore Extraction Facial begins with a thorough skin assessment where you will hear only the honest reviews from a knowledgeable therapist. Before extraction comes into play, the face will be prepped with deep cleansing and exfoliation, lotion as well as steaming. The dead skin cells are removed in these steps to better prepare the skin for more effective results.
My Cozy Room Boutique Spa makes use of both a metal extracting tool and tweezer which can go up to 40 minutes. A typical extraction process usually lasts 15 minutes at most which show how thorough the team at My Cozy Room Boutique Spa are.
A skin tonic is applied immediately after to disinfect, soothe and reduce redness followed by a high-frequency treatment. The latter aids in further disinfecting the pores to prevent possible acne from budding. Rest assured that the whole facial treatment poses little to no discomfort for those with low pain tolerance!
