Forget a mani-pedi—these beauty treatments offer something a little more unusual for beauty buffs.
iS Clinical Fire & Ice Facial (Renew Skin)

Carboxytherapy (Ogee Facial Rejuvenation)
Have you heard of this little-known rejuvenation procedure? Now you have. Injecting the skin with gaseous carbon dioxide (CO2) in tiny amounts, Carboxytherapy is said to help with brightening skin tone, eliminating puffiness around the eyes, fading fine lines and wrinkles, muting scars, reducing dark under-eye circles, rejuvenating the face, smoothing skin texture, shrinking pores and tightening skin.
So, basically, it sounds like a need, not a want.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Facial (Tinted Skin)
Remember the “vampire facial” that blew up the internet? This is it. In the treatment a small portion of your blood is collected and processed in a centrifuge, then injected back into your areas of concern.
Wondering why the hell you would want to do this? It not only helps to improve skin texture and rejuvenate UV-damaged skin, but it also reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.

Korean Style Facial Treatment (Sycamore Media Spa)
There’s no denying Korean skincare is all the rage (hello snail mucin, pimple patches, and essence emulsions), so why not take it to the next level with a Korean facial? Choose from one of Sycamore Media Spa’s options (think Cherry Bloom Therapy or 24K Luxury Gold Therapy) and see what the buzz is about.

Native Clay and Hot Oil Massage (Jindii Eco Spa)
A fusion of ancient Ayurvedic massage combined with native Australian ingredients, this isn’t your average massage. Beginning with placing a ring of native clay on the back and hot, therapeutic oils continuously flowing to gently release spinal tension, you’ll be left feeling completely relaxed, nurtured, and harmonised. Name a better way to relieve some stress.
