SOTHYS Premium Salon
If your acne is caused by the clogging of pores, it will usually clear up after you go for an extraction facial. However, for those who are suffering from more severely inflamed acne, you may want to consider going for a facial treatment that specifically targets this skin issue instead.
SOTHYS is a 73-year-old brand from Paris, and most people will be familiar with this professional spa chain. They offer a Matt-Stabilizer Synergy Treatment, which addresses sensitive, inflamed skin and reduces excessive sebum. It aims to soothe the skin and promote healing.
The treatment involves aromatherapy techniques, where you are first made to relax over the soothing scent of lavender oil. The therapist then proceeds with the treatment, starting from a double cleanse, optional extraction, application of serum, and the star procedure – application of not one, but TWO ampoules.
At the end of the acne facial, you will be further rejuvenated with a facial point massage, multi-masking, followed by a blissful shoulder massage. All your frustrations about the acne – and of course, the acne itself – will disappear by the end of this acne facial.
Judging by the high ratings and good reviews of SOTHYS Premium Salon we’ve seen online, we are certain that their acne facial is worth checking out when you need help with those pesky zits.

Caring Skin (trial at almost 70% off!)
An expert in treating sensitive skin and acne, Caring Skin is known for its signature painless extractions that promise minimal downtime. This gentle feature is what catapulted the facial spa into mainstream popularity. It’s no surprise that their effective facials have garnered countless five-star reviews on Google and Facebook too.
If you’re looking for a calming facial to soothe and hydrate your acne-prone skin, try Caring Skin’s Plantomer Soothing Treatment. This plant-based facial alleviates irritation and retains hydration. It marries the moisturising benefits of seaweed with healing properties of antimicrobial propolis to infuse your skin with minerals and vitamin A. The treatment is suitable for all skin types, and works best for those with dry, acne-prone skin.
After a relaxing facial massage and double cleanse, your esthetician will apply a gentle enzyme peel to exfoliate your skin. She will then perform Caring Skin’s signature painless extraction, which is ideal for those who have sensitive skin or a lower pain threshold. Next, a soothing mist will be used to refresh and prep your skin for the following treatments.
The facial also involves the use of Cryogenic Therapy, a cooling treatment that helps to soften and deliver the nutrients into the deeper layers of the skin. After which, a mask made with detoxifying seaweed and soothing propolis extracted from the Jura Mountains of France will be applied on your skin. These ingredients are rich in natural antibiotic properties and vitamin A, which help repair your skin. Allow the scent of lavender and vetiver whisk you away into relaxation.
Your facial will end with a shoulder massage to ease tense knots. After 90 minutes, you’ll notice visibly calmer, even-toned skin with less inflamed acne.

Face Shower Bar [Temporarily closed until further notice]
Ever been puzzled by the lack of results seen after a facial, or never had the time to actually go for one because you just can’t afford to take a longer break from work? Face Shower Bar is the solution you’ve been looking for.
Face Shower Bar offers the unique concept of a “dry bar facial”, where modern women can keep up with pampering for their skin with facials that only takes 30 minutes to complete. Its signature treatment is the Quick Shower Facial, which uses hydra-dermabrasion, an advanced exfoliation technology that removes clogged pores and blackheads.
This facial treatment follows a three-step patented DermaSOS, a programme that was designed by Face Shower Bar, together with an A*STAR researcher.
The first step is Dermabrasion, where a gentle vortex liquid wash dissolves impurities and softens dead skin cells. It is then followed by the second step, Dermaopen, which sloughs off dead skin cells and unclogs blemishes with a painless suction. The last step is called Dermasoothen – it eases irritated and dehydrated skin with a calming solution through vortex infusion.
Our reviewers who tried this acne facial at Face Shower Bar were all very impressed by the instant results they had seen after the facial treatment. The blemishes they had were not as obvious as before as the pores were thoroughly unclogged during the (painless!) extraction, and their skin continued to feel soft and smooth in the next few days after the acne facial too.
Impressed already? You can read full reviews of Face Shower Bar’s facial by our reviewers here.

A specialised medi-spa with solutions for the face, hair, and body, Cambridge Therapeutics marries a science-based approach with effective products to create a slew of treatment options. Curated by doctors, you can expect safe, high-quality treatments that deliver visible results. If you’re struggling to heal your acne and acne scars, try the Neogen™ Plasma Acne Treatment.
It uses plasma energy to heal and regenerate the skin. Plasma sterilises and kills harmful bacteria on the skin and inhibits their growth. This is why it is highly effective in treating mild to severe, inflamed adult acne. Compared to conventional acne and pore-tightening treatments, the Neogen™ Plasma has a more potent skin regeneration ability that suppresses sebum production too.
Since the Neogen™ Plasma is not a laser treatment, you won’t experience any redness or sensitivity after – practically no downtime at all. It is suitable for all skin types and is especially recommended for those who are sensitive to laser-based acne treatments.
On top of that, the Neogen™ Plasma is able to treat several other skin conditions at the same time, from psoriasis and melasma to pigmentation, eczema, and enlarged pores.
Cambridge Therapeutics’ Neogen™ Plasma Acne Treatment is priced from S$200 for the first trial.

Known for their facials and aromatherapy body massages, Boudoir Aesthetics offers a variety of beauty treatments to address your skin’s needs and concerns.
Besides facial treatments, the beauty studio also provides beauty courses conducted by a trainer who has over 10 years of experience, including various facial courses, eyebrow embroidery, as well
as personal and professional makeup courses, so you can level up by learning a new skill. They also offer post-natal, prenatal, and infant massages.
If you have acne-prone skin that’s congested with whiteheads and blackheads, try the Bye Acne Facial. The treatment will begin with a gentle but meticulous facial extraction to remove the gunk that’s been clogging your pores. According to a happy customer, the extraction wasn’t as painful compared to other facials she’s tried.
Made with salicylic acid, eucalyptus, and other acne-combatting ingredients, the treatment unclogs your pores and targets blemishes, bringing down any redness and inflammation. Plasma energy is also used to help various skincare formulas penetrate better during the treatment. Their in-house toner is also used to fight acne-causing bacteria and eliminate acne growth from within.
The treatment also involves a lymphatic drainage massage to detox and depuff your face. On top of that, you’ll also receive a relaxing head and shoulder massage to knead away tension and soothe your senses.
After the first session, most customers have noticed clearer, brighter skin that’s smooth to the touch. One customer was pleasantly surprised that there weren’t any new blemishes that formed after the facial. However, it all boils down to individual concerns too – some may require at least five sessions to see a noticeable difference.
Boudoir Aesthetics’ Bye Acne Facial is priced at S$68 for the first trial.
