Today was my off day, and I had plans to go for a thai massage. Somehow that plan did not come to pass....
Somehow instead, I ended up heading to Estuary Medispa to utilize my friend's Balinese style 60 mins body massage from the mini package. My friend didn't have the time to come in at the last minute, so I was the lucky mate instead. ^^
Taking two flights of escalators up the Scotts Garden building complex, along Old Klang Road, this building is really one of the more convenient places one can go to have their facials done. Parking is easy. Buses and cabs pass by this building every minute of the hour.
There's even going to be a new gym, Chi, which will be opened in June 2013! How convenient is that?

As I was looking for a facial treatment to do, I decided to try their first trial Cosmocell Bio Cell Shock Treatment which was selling at Rm120. Before going for the facial, one of my friends advised me to try out their Japanese Synergy Sauna (from my friend's package..so it was free). It is this room with lots of heated magnets (no idea how it works) but it is supposed to improve your blood circulation, and helps to open up pores.
Before going into the sauna, the therapist will hand you a pair of disposable bikini to change into. It is also advisable to take a shower before going into the sauna room.
After that, I changed back into my own clothes. I was then ushered up the stairs to the first floor where the facial rooms were. It was across the hall from where the nail salon area is located.
My facial started around 3pm. The therapist actually used a technology which I have not been privy to before this, which is the BB scrub- a gel solution and a little contraption with a metal 'scrubber' which works together open the pores and makes it easier to remove blackheads. It replaces the use of a steamer, which blows hot air to a client's face to open up the pores.
My face was rather dehydrated so it took a little longer for the therapists during the extraction process. Due to this rather stimulating process, the therapist used a kind of ultrasound contraption to calm my face before proceeding to the next step.
By the time I was done, it was 5.30pm. Overall it was a different experience from my normal facial salon that I also frequent in the same building.
I ended up purchasing another four facial package for Rm480 from the consultant, Eugine. I quite like the fact that the location is convenient, as well as the facial being quite thorough.
