We're missing many aspects of everyday life during the season of social distancing—travel, restaurants, and human contact to name a few. Another aspect we've been longing for, however, is professional skincare; namely, an excellent facial. Luckily, we've done the legwork for you to ensure your skin is treated to the most luxurious experience possible. Here, marie claire rounds up the best facial spots throughout all of Sydney—where clinicians and dermatologists manage to elevate both skincare and relaxation to the next level.


The Day Spa by Chuan at The Langham Sydney

The Langham Sydney has long been one of Sydney's most exclusive enclaves, and their wellness spa hits all the right spots. Just take a look at that pool.Their menu is packed with many luxury and bespoke options, but it's hard to beat their signature 'Chuan Yu Facial', which starts at $240—it incorporates healing tools from jade stones to gua sha massagers.

Treatments start at $225 for 1 hour, book at The Langham Sydney

SpaQ at QT Sydney

Situated in the midst of Sydney's CBD, spaQ offers welcome respite from the bustling city streets. As for their approach, customisation is key.

Committed to personalisation, spaQ tailors their treatments (and ingredients used) to each visitor's individual skin needs. For example, their beloved Femme Fatal Facial offers use of either vitamin C for glow, hyaluronic acid for hydration, retinol for rejuvenation or aquatherm for repair. Whichever option you choose, the treatment is available for $170.

Treatments start at $95 for 30 minutes, book at spaQ

Sol Spa at The Botanica Vaucluse

Housed amongst a lush fragrant oasis in the heart of the Eastern Suburbs, Sol Spa pairs modern day technology with the healing elements of nature to deliver the ultimate holistic spa experience.

The options abound, with the spa offering everything from the functional (such as the Blemish Purifying treatment designed to aid adult acne, available for $150) to the spiritual (their Signature Rose Quartz Facial, available for $165, will rebalance both your complexion and your Chakra).

Treatments start at $150 for 1 hour, book at Sol Spa

Alkaline Potts Point

We're huge fans of Alkaline's effective, to-the-punch approach to skin rejuvenation.

While they offer a multitude of different massage treatments, their medically-condoned facials are what they're known for (we're fans of the all-too-necessary 'Pick Me Up' skin experience). Book ASAP, as immediate availability fills up fast.

Treatments start at $120 for 30 minutes, book at Alkaline

The Spa at Park Hyatt

Located at one of Sydney's most luxurious hotels, you're guaranteed to be treated to a lavish experience at The Spa at Park Hyatt.

Our pick? The 90-minute Caviar Facial, which starts at $355 and features both caviar topicals and a firming AcuLift massage. It's every bit as luxe as it sounds.

Treatments start at $90 for 30 minutes, book at The Spa

Fleur de Lys Medispa Woollahra

Fleur de Lys' opulent treatments have made it one of the Eastern Suburbs' go-to facial clinics.

With a focus on the full-on pampering treatment, you might as well go all the way with the 24 carat pure gold facial, available for $250, which prevents sagging skin with the help of a little Australian gold.

Treatments start at $99 for 30 minutes, book at Fleur de Lys Medispa
