Our top beauty treatments to try in 2022: 

AsterSpring Volcanic Cool Treatment

Feeling stressed? Book yourself a Volcanic Cool Treatment. This tried-and-true facial treatment by AsterSpring does its job by soothing the skin from redness and inflammation, thanks to the natural cold basalt magma volcanic stones from Peru. Don’t be alarmed by the term volcanic stones, as it brings a cooling and calming effect while releasing any tension to the skin. In addition, it can absorb and neutralise radiation from the skin.

This treatment incorporates clinical colloidal oatmeal masque, colloidal masque and botanical cooling masque. Each masque includes healthy benefits to deeply hydrate and moisturise the skin while strengthening the skin barrier. Ideal as a treat to your loved ones or yourself, making an appointment for this facial treatment is the relaxation you need for a quick escape. Besides the facial treatment, we love how a combination of massage techniques is used too. Overall, it left our skin and mind feeling rejuvenated, smooth and hydrated.

AsterSpring’s Volcanic Cool Therapy is now available in Malaysia at all AsterSpring centres (RM328) and AsterSpring Signature centres (RM368). Head over to the website for more info. 

STRIP Rosebud Vajuvenation

Kicking off our beauty treatment guide for 2022 is STRIP’s Rosebud Vajuvenation. Ladies, have you ever tried a vajafacial? On top of your monthly facials, it’s time to incorporate major TLC to the most sacred part of your body. Identical to a Brazilian facelift, STRIP’s Rosebud Vajuvenation is an anti-ageing facial to lift and firm your private region. The non-invasive and non-surgical procedure uses high-performance Thermal O2 Technology by combining radio frequency, vacuum suction and gentle heat to deliver the best results.

Believe it or not, the delicate vulva can lose its elasticity due to harsh soaps, humid air, hormonal changes and age. Thanks to the treatment, you won’t have to worry about fine lines and wrinkles again. Other health benefits include increasing blood circulation and boosting collagen growth while enhancing skin hydration. 

The process takes 30 minutes to complete and promises instant results after one session. A layer of chocolate oil is slathered on the surface after a Brazilian wax to ensure a smooth experience to reduce friction. Don’t worry about the suctions of the unique device, as you will get used to the soothing sensation a few minutes in. The therapist will focus on each side of the vulva for 15 minutes, where you can instantly notice a ‘lifting’ contrast. Once the treatment is done, you can definitely feel and see a plumping and tightening effect with a noticeable reduction in fine lines.

We recommend trying this service after your monthly Brazilian wax appointments. If you have 15 minutes to spare, add the Blackout mask for a hydrating finish. The charcoal mask is infused with organic botanical ingredients to detoxify, soothe, brighten and hydrate.

STRIP is currently offering its Rosebud Vajuvenation service at a special offer (RM68 nett) for first-timers till 30 June 2022. Head to the website for more info and make an appointment at these outlets here.

Mimone Lymphatic Drainage Detox Full Body Treatment

Made for women by women, Mimone was founded in 2018 and is known for its exceptional natural skincare products. Customers rave about their best-selling Q10 Freeze Hydro Essence Gel Mask. Ideal for a quick pampering session at home, the mask is formulated to boost hydration while leaving a supple, glowing look. For those looking for a quick escape, book an appointment at Mimone spa, which offers various services from manicures to massages. On our list is the Lymphatic Drainage Full Body Detox Treatment. 

For those unfamiliar, a lymphatic massage offers impressive health benefits to relieve excess wastage, maintain proper blood circulation and encouraging the movement of lymph fluids around the body. It’s also excellent for improving cellulite, skin swelling and helps with post-exercise recovery. Choose between the 60 minutes (RM189) and 90 minutes (RM238) treatment. The procedure incorporates rhythmic strokes and light pressure to facilitate the lymphatic system. However, you can increase the pressure according to your liking.

The therapist combines a traditional massage with light, repetitive strokes while focusing on the stomach, back, legs, and arms. Once the treatment is done, your body will feel lighter, relaxed and relieved from the tightness. While each result may vary, we noticed a reduction in water retention in the stomach area and a massive energy boost the next day. 

We recommend incorporating this beauty treatment into your monthly routine in 2022 to reset the body and mind.

Book yourself an onsen as it helps increase blood circulation, reduces stress, relieves pain, and promotes better sleep.

Start by picking your mineral-rich crystalline powders: Iyashi for healing, Zen for calmness and Kirei for beauty. The next step is to choose your preferred temperature (whether 40 degrees or 42 degrees celsius) before dipping into the single-person onsen bathtubs imported from Japan.

AsterSpring Hydra Shine Therapy

The Hydra Shine Therapy by AsterSpring is just the thing you need to revive and brighten dull and dehydrated skin. It’s only natural for skin to lose its glow, particularly when it has been exposed to UV rays and other pollutions on a daily basis. If your aim is to achieve a youthful glow without going through an intense skin treatment, then the Hydra Shine Therapy is the one for you. The 2-hour rejuvenating facial experience starts off with a massage, followed by a double cleansing, exfoliation, mild extraction and a soothing pressure point massage with a blend of calming essential oils. A highlighted product used for the treatment was the Powerbright Ionactive Serum which helps brighten the skin by reducing the appearance of dark spots. The treatment is wrapped up with the use of ampoule mist, serum, moisturiser and SPF to protect your skin for the rest of the day. As a result, the treatment will have your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated- leaving you with more youthful-looking skin.

AsterSpring’s Hydra Shine Therapy is now available in Malaysia at AsterSpring (RM398) and AsterSpring’s Signature centres (RM438). Head over to the website for more info. 

AsterSpring’s Detox Clearing Therapy

Here’s another facial treatment worth noting from AsterSpring. If you’re acne-prone and are looking for ways to tackle premature skin ageing, AsterSpring’s Detox Clearing Therapy is definitely worth booking. As someone who currently experiences hormonal acne, clogged pores and bumps, the facial treatment promises and delivers the best results after a single appointment. Thanks to their newest Purifying Masque and Exfoliant, the process helps clear breakouts and controls excess oil while protecting the skin from sun damage or inflammation. Following that, a bt-accent AIR machine is used with a Power Essence and Soothing Rebalancing Serum to improve cell regeneration, which is exceptionally great for speeding up acne and scar healing. In fact, I noticed a light fade from my old acne scars post-facial. After masking, exfoliating, extracting, and utilising the machine, the professional skin therapist ends the experience with double masques (multigrain soothing and botanical cooling masques) to strengthen the skin barrier and top it with a pressure point massage. My verdict? Not only was it a relaxing experience, but it’s also worth a try if you’re looking for ways to calm your breakouts and clogged pores.

AsterSpring’s Detox Clearing Therapy is now available in Malaysia at all AsterSpring (RM368) and AsterSpring Signature (RM398) centres. Head over to the website for more info.
