Sydney is Australia’s biggest city, so it’s no surprise it has the most spas and clinics offering facials as compared to any other. Whether you’re after a more hard-core facial that can take up to six weeks to see full results, like skin needling and depigmenting, or a gentler, more surface-level face treatment for an immediate glow, you’ll find something to suit at Sydney’s spas and clinics.

Ahead are some of those Sydney spas and clinics locals trust for a flawless face.

Glow Medispa

Elisa Osmo worked at Endota Spa, Melanie Grant and Face Plus Medispa before starting her clinic Glow Medispa in Pyrmont. Treatments target acne, dehydration and pigmentation, using LED, extraction, dermaplanning, skin needling and face massage, but all are tailored to the individual depending on what Osmo sees is needed and what the individual wants.

The Jurlique Spa

Australian skincare brand Jurlique has spa locations at shopping centres in Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast, as well as two in Sydney: Westfield Chatswood and the QVB. All spa treatments use the brand’s natural skin products. Choose from the likes of 30-minute express facials, to 75-minute ultimate radiance treatments. The Signature Herbal Recovery Facial is the spas’ most popular

Dr Adam Brown Skin and Cosmetics

Unlike many other spas in Sydney, Dr Adam Brown Skin and Cosmetics sees your skin treatments completed by an actual doctor. One treatment offered is the Cutera V+ Laser Gensis, which works to improve rosacea and wrinkles and stimulate collagen growth with a laser directed onto the face. The machine has a built-in cooling mechanism that helps to minimise any discomfort.

The Well

Walking into The Well on Elizabeth Bay Road in Potts Point, with its carpeted floors and dusty pink and white colour scheme, you’ll feel as if you’ve walked into a spa straight out of Barbie land. In addition to cosmetic injectables, the clinic also offers machine-led skin regeneration, like RF skin needling, hydra facials and LED facials, and skin treatments, using products from DMK and O’Cosmedics.

Clear Skincare Clinics

Clear Skincare Clinics are a great option for a Sydney facial, with clinics all around Australia, including a handful in convenient Sydney locations, like Balgowlah, Balmain and Clarence Street. Facials range from a 15-minute express microdermabrasion to skin resurfacing that’s only available in select clinics and see new tech Renuva used on your face to reduce wrinkles and stimulate collagen.

Laser Clinics Australia

Laser Clinics Australia has franchises all over the country, with a handful in Sydney, at Bondi Junction, Broadway and Castle Hill. The clinics offer laser hair removal, injectables and facials. Book a free consultation to find out which is right for you or choose your own. Facials range from lighter-on like express microdermabrasion, LED yellow treatments and aquafacials, to more heavy-duty, like skin needling and peels.    

The Skin Bar

The Skin Bar has six Sydney locations: Bondi, Cronulla, Narrabeen, Rozelle, Mosman and Double Bay. It’s Australia’s only dedicated skin needling clinic, so you can bet its staff knows what they’re doing with it. It also offers Korean-designed treatment radio frequency (RF) needling, which plumps, lifts and evens out skin texture with minimal downtime. At the Rozelle location, be sure to leave time before your facial to visit The Bathhouse where you can do a sauna and ice bath.

Endota Spa

For more of a spa experience to accompany your facial, head to Endota Spa. The spa has several facials you can do if you have just 30 minutes, like an express clinical peel, electro-mesotherapy and an organic express. The spa’s intense renewal facial helps to plump, sculpt and illuminate your complexion, so is great to book ahead of an important event.

DMK Skin Revision Clinics

The DMK philosophy is to remove, rebuild, protect and maintain. It uses Enzyme Therapy to oxygenate, strengthen, nourish and tone the skin. DMK treatments are practiced in clinics around Australia, and in over 40 DMK clinics in Greater Sydney. Y
