SENZE VITALITY FACIAL
SK-II BOUTIQUE SPA BY SENZE SALUS
Tired, dull and fatigued skin are the bane of modern women, stretched thin from the demands of career, family and social obligations. That’s where the Senze Vitality Facial comes in. Designed to tackle these skin concerns, this indulgent treatment is available at the SK-II Boutique Spa by Senze Salus, a well-established name that delivers efficacious facials with Asian sensibilities.
ROOTED IN THE EAST
Based on ‘Bojin’ principles—an acupressure massage technique which stimulates pressure points to ease pain, optimise energy flow and enhance skin’s overall wellness— the Senze Vitality Facial promotes circulation, detoxes skin and maximises the absorption of nutrients from skincare products.
The facial massage is done with a special microcrystalline rock facial tool with rounded edges, known as a ‘bianshi’, to unblock meridian channels on the face and regulate the flow of ‘qi’. Gentle but firm pressure is applied to the face’s acupuncture points to melt away tension and boost circulation, thus improving skin’s glow.
WELLNESS BEGINS HERE
A true self-care experience for the weary, this relaxing facial starts off with an aromatic ritual using carefully selected organic essential oils. Skin is rid of impurities with the spa’s signature triple-cleansing method—it ensures skin is thoroughly cleansed without stripping it of its natural moisture and ready to reap all the benefits of the products that follow.
After cleansing, the therapist starts the facial massage, applying smooth strokes and rhythmic pressure to stimulate energy flow. Your skin is now in optimum condition to absorb active ingredients. Next, the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask is applied, along with ultrasound therapy to help the hydrating and soothing ingredients penetrate deeper. The final step is the application of SK-II signature products based on your skin’s needs. Purifying and pampering, this 90-minute session is all you need to reveal your skin’s radiant potential.
