Oftentimes, extravagant facials do little more than infuse your skin with a flowery scent or cause unnecessary pain. But these are not your typical facials. Scottsdale’s world-renowned spas offer up lavish options that are also 100 perfect effective.


The Well & Being Facial at Fairmont Scottsdale Princess


The signature facial at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess’ Well & Being at Willow Stream Spa, this treatment uses the latest advancements in green skincare technologies to provide a natural face lift. This herbal enzyme resurfacing treatment includes a “butterfly” massage and electrical current therapies to provide a lift and stimulate the skin for maximum nutrient absorption.


Sonoran Rose Facial at Camelback Inn


The Spa at Camelback Inn’s rich, aromatic facial puts the soothing and softening powers of roses to good use. After removing surface build-up with a glycolic facial peel, hands and feet are massaged with rose-infused oil, and free radicals ousted with a stabilized oxygen cream that’s enriched with Vitamins A and E for ultimate results.


Hydropeptide Facial at Hotel Valley Ho


Skin in need of a boost? The Hydropeptide Facial leaves behind a vibrant and dewy complexion, the true markings of health, for a look that’s downright effervescent. While you’re there, kick it up a notch with a chilled marble enhancement – the perfect add-on for decreasing puffiness and toning those drab spots. It’s ultra-replenishing and ultra-luxe.


DNA Repair Oxygenating Facial at the Boulders Resort


Powerful and anti-aging, this healing-focused facial features liquid oxygen concentrate to increase skin cell metabolism, plus a peel-off cryogenic mask for strengthening collagen and enhancing your skin’s natural “matrix.”  Suffice it to say, this is the route to take if you’re looking to kick wrinkles and fine lines to the curb.


Lighten and Brighten at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale


Perfect for the morning after a night out or, say, at the tail-end of an indulgent vacation, the Lighten and Brighten facial uses antioxidant-rich copper peptides to revive dullness, even out skin tone and level up its radiance. Bonus: Facial enhancements like ginger-lime hand massages and hydrating collagen eye pads.


Sinus Renewal at the Westin Kierland Resort


If seasonal allergies left you with telltale puffiness and dark under-eye circles, this treatment at Agave Spa at the Westin Kierland Resort is for you. Using Eucalyptus along with facial acupressure and lymphatic drainage techniques, aestheticians relieve sinus pain and pressure to help you feel and look your best. It’s the perfect add-on to any of Agave Spa’s luxurious facials.
