Where Sydneysiders Go to Get Their Skin in Shape
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.
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.
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 five Sydney locations: Bondi, Cronulla, Narrabeen, Rozelle 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. 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.
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.
