Rejuvenate with the latest lasers.
Where: The Laser Lounge

The painless procedure (it can get a little hot) takes about 20 minutes and the results can be seen immediately but improve over time.

Salon Based Facials Put Your Best Face Forward.
Why: Nano-needling stimulates collagen production in the skin by safely infusing active ingredients from your serum through tiny nano-channels. This is very similar, but less invasive than micro-needling and allows up to 97% product absorption. This treatment combats fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, and other skin blemishes through the transdermal delivery system for increased effectiveness of serums.
How much: prices currently from Rp550,000
What else: Run by an experienced hair dresser and an Australian beauty technician, Aspya offers a full range of services from their safe, effective facials and beauty treatments to hair colour and expert cuts.
Give Your Skin A Real Boost.
Where: Made Ita Aesthetic
Why: Skin Boosters are micro-injections of dermal fillers in the skin. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, they are not designed to add volume or shape the face. Instead, they are very fine dermal fillers that are injected into the face to add lasting hydration and improve the quality of the skin. The mix of hyaluronic acid with glutathione and amino acids plumps the skin and restores a youthful glow and will last up to six months. Read why this is one of Sarah Dougherty’s favourite treatments here.
How much: Rp4,500,000 (check the FB page for current specials!)
