INSTANT GLOW FACIAL (HK$1,500 for 60 minutes / HK$2,250 for 90 minutes)
Specifically formulated to provide targeted cell regeneration and an intense dose of moisture, this facial employs the potent and ultra-moisturising Hyaluronic Serum to deliver a natural and refined glow to the skin. The Signature Facial Massage designed by Dr. Sturm stimulates blood circulation and boosts collagen production for the iconic #STURMGLOW. The nutrient-rich finishing product, Glow Drops, utilises light-reflecting pigments to even out any irregularities in the complexion for visibly youthful radiance.
BRIGHTENING FACIAL (HK$1,500 for 60 minutes / HK$2,250 for 90 minutes)
A revolutionary brightening treatment created to deliver extraordinary luminosity, evenness, clarity and softness without the use of laser technology. The protocol begins with a preparative deep cleansing and exfoliating facial. The areas of visible pigmentation and unevenness are then targeted and topically treated with our rapid-acting yet gentle brightening formulas for immediate results. Facial massage will also be performed to promote blood circulation, allowing skin to heal itself from the damage caused by sun exposure, sleep loss and free radicals. When the facial is completed, skin will demonstrate the brightness and clarity of laser resurfacing treatment, but without any discomfort or downtime.
CLARIFYING FACIAL (HK$1,500 for 60 minutes / HK$2,250 for 90 minutes)
A pioneering facial paired with a lymphatic drainage facial massage to rebalance and restore the natural dermal equilibrium. Effectively treating blemish-prone and irritated skin, it begins with the non-comedogenic cleansing process; refreshing skin and gently removing excess oils without destabilising sensitive pH and hydration levels.

SUPER ANTI-AGING FACIAL (HK$1,500 for 60 minutes / HK$2,700 for 90 minutes)
By combining the effects of the antioxidant-infused Super Anti-Aging Serum with
