A rejuvenating spa or a facial treatment session is an indulgence. You literally lay back and relax, and allow the therapist to do their magic. Next thing you know, you will be up on your feet feeling completely refreshed, energised and ready to conquer the rest of the day. But for some, putting aside an hour or two just for that short pampering is not the easiest task, especially when time is not on their side. And most of the facial treatments available are always stretched to a minimum of 60 minutes while the more extensive and innovative facial treatments are at least 90 minutes long.

This is also the perfect midday maintenance that you can do during your lunch break or after work. Don’t underestimate these treatments though, as shorter duration doesn’t mean it’s less effective compared to the norm. Each of the treatments listed here uses highly effective products along with researched techniques, so you not only walk out refreshed but also experience immediate results.

Not all hope is lost for those who are busy 24/7, as these facial treatments only take less than an hour while some only take a mere 30 minutes of your time. Book an appointment and experience it yourself. You’ll be strutting back to the office with fresh, glowy skin.
