True beauty comes from within, but that doesn’t mean we can’t put effort into looking and feeling our best. And though there are plenty of ways to accomplish this, few things hit the spot quite like a facial spa.
So, if you’re looking for your own little slice of skincare heaven, we’ve certainly got you covered. Through a meticulous process involving various criteria, we’ve handpicked a list of the best facial spas in Vancouver
How much do facials cost in Vancouver?
The cost of a facial can be influenced by various factors including product costs, treatment types, and the use of high-tech equipment. To help you plan for your next visit to the spa, we’ve also compiled some basic services along with their average price ranges.
|Service||Price range (per session)|
|Basic facial||$35 – $50|
|Comprehensive treatments||$75 – $90|
|High-tech facials (with equipment)||$100 – $250|
|Facial peels||$100 – $200|
As we mentioned earlier, facials can carry different prices depending on a client’s chosen services. Generally, treatments using specialized equipment and products will end up costing more than basic treatments.
The Best Facial Spas in Vancouver
Before we explore what Vancity has to offer, we’d like to mention the standards and criteria that we used to build this list. Each of our entries was carefully screened based on the following:
With these three criteria, we felt that we were able to build a diverse list of high-quality options for those seeking a facial spa experience.
Now that we’ve established these standards, it’s finally time to unveil our picks for the best facial spas in Vancouver.
1. Breathe Spa Vancouver
Massage & bodywork
Aesthetic medical procedures
|ADDRESS||464 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V6C 1V4, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone number: (604) 688-4769|
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday: 10 am – 6 pm|
Tuesday: 12 pm – 8 pm
Wednesday: 12 pm – 8 pm
Thursday: 12 pm – 8 pm
Friday: 12 pm – 8 pm
Saturday: 10 am – 6 pm
Sunday: 10 am – 6 pm
Situated along Granville St., Breathe is something between a high-end spa and a cosmetic clinic. We say this since these folks provide standard spa services such as facials, and mani-pedis along with more cosmetic procedures like dental cleaning and needling.
For facial services, clients can choose from 5 different options with varying levels of skin treatments. Their basic option takes around 20 minutes and includes facial cleansing, steam therapy, and a facial massage.
In contrast, Breathe’s signature facial takes an hour and a half to complete. But, in exchange for a longer appointment, clients receive additional treatments such as extractions, oxygenation, facial masks, and an application of creams and oils.
These folks aim to pamper their clients in every sense of the word. To help accomplish this, the spa’s interior follows a beige color scheme with classical design pieces similar to those seen in baroque architecture.
All in all, the facial treatments offered by this establishment are hands-on with little to no use of equipment save for a basic light therapy machine. This can be great for clients who enjoy traditional facial spas as opposed to high-tech machine-based treatments.
If you’re looking for a high-quality facial spa using traditional methods, this place is an excellent option. However, if you’re more inclined towards the use of equipment, you may want to explore some of our other entries.
I feel fresh and rejuvenated each time.
“I love frequenting this spa! Every time I go for a massage or a facial I am welcomed with the warmest regard. Likewise at the end of the treatment the amazing service continues. The treatment itself of great quality, I feel fresh and rejuvenated each time. All in all I must say I love it there!” – Megan P.
The ambiance in the spa is very relaxing and the service was fantastic.
“My friends and I came here for the express facial, the ambiance in the spa is very relaxing and the service was fantastic. I personally had Katherine and she was so personable and is great at making her clients feel comfortable and well taken care of!” – Ashley A.
2. Skoah Yaletown
|ADDRESS||1007 Hamilton St, Vancouver, BC V6B 5T4, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone number: (604) 642-0200|
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday: 10 am – 8 pm|
Tuesday: 10 am – 8 pm
Wednesday: 10 am – 8 pm
Thursday: 10 am – 8 pm
Friday: 10 am – 8 pm
Saturday: 9 am – 7 pm
Sunday: 9 am – 7 pm
Located in the heart of Vancouver’s Yaletown, Skoah is an excellent option for those who want to unwind with a facial and grab a delicious bite nearby. These folks pride themselves on developing and using their own line of skincare products.
The highlight of Skoah’s skincare line is the fact that all of its ingredients are entirely plant-based. What this means is that these products will generally be gentler than chemical-based skin care products.
Naturally, Skoah exclusively uses its own products for in-house facials and treatments. Based on what we’ve heard from previous clients, these products work quite well thanks to their high-quality constituents.
Clients looking to try out Skoah’s facial services can choose from three different services with each one increasing in the level of intensity. Regardless of the level, each of these services comes with a deep tissue massage to help clients unwind further during their facial.
For die-hard fans of Skoah skincare, this facial spa is an obvious no-brainer since it only uses Skoah products. Now, if you’re looking to try natural skincare products for a change, this place also presents a good opportunity to do so without committing to a full product kit.
From what we can gather, this facial spa’s most glaring downside is that it doesn’t make use of any synthetic-based products. So, if you’re not confident in the effectiveness of plant-based products, or you have a serious plant allergy, it may be wise to visit a different facial spa.
It was my first time there, I was welcomed in with a friendly smile.
“I was super impressed with the care and attention I received at my facial appointment the other day. It was my first time there, I was welcomed in with a friendly smile. First Impressions count so much. I felt relaxed and at ease. I was pretty impressed with the final result. My face and neck have never felt better. TI definitely will be back when I’m in Vancouver next” – Jahnoia C.
It’s a clean and relaxing environment and they use quality products.
“My girlfriend and always find ourselves back here as it’s the perfect way to treat ourselves. The staff here are always so friendly and professional. It’s a clean and relaxing environment and they use quality products. My skin trainer, Teagan, was amazing and so gentle with extractions. She listened to my skin concerns and gave me some pro tips on what to do at home.” – Janet Y.
3. Derma Bright Clinic
|ADDRESS||2786 W 16th Ave #206, Vancouver, BC V6K 4M1, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone number: (604) 259-8757|
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday: closed|
Tuesday: 10 am – 5 pm
Wednesday: 10 am – 5 pm
Thursday: 12 pm – 8 pm
Friday: 10 am – 6 pm
Saturday: 8 am – 6 pm
Sunday: 9:30 am – 5 pm
Derma Bright is a cosmetic clinic that focuses on providing high-quality skincare with a mix of all-natural ingredients and alternative light-based therapy. Depending on what service clients choose, treatment rooms can take the form of a standard clinic setting or a basic spa room.
For traditional facials, Derma Bright has chosen to use Nelly deVuyst organic skin care products. Again, this will be more beneficial to clients who have relatively sensitive skin or irritated acne.
Clients who prefer not to use any products whatsoever will be thrilled to know that these folks also offer photo facial therapy. This type of facial treatment makes use of intense light pulses to help deal with wrinkles, spots, and even unwanted hair.
While we can’t speak on the effectiveness of their IPL treatments, many clients have praised this clinic for its ability to handle tough acne. We like to think this is due to the effectiveness of Derma Bright’s products which they extensively evaluate for overall efficacy.
Overall, we believe Derma Bright does a good job of splitting the difference between traditional facial treatments and high-tech facials. We say this since they also utilize oxygenation machines and ultrasonic devices alongside their photofacial tools.
Our only concern for clients would be the general vibe of the establishment’s interior spaces. As a clinic, this place carries less of a “spa feeling” than what some clients may be accustomed to.
With that said, if you’re not too bothered by this then Derma Bright can be a great choice for a unique facial treatment that combines synthetic products and some equipment.
My skin looked so much brighter and full of life after I finished.
“I got a 45 min facial and it was amazing!! My skin looked so much brighter and full of life after I finished. And the staff were super accommodating and professional” – Cassidy F.
The people are lovely and their services are fairly priced.
“I now know why people travel long distances to go to a hairdresser they trust. Because that is how I feel about DermaBright and my skin. The people are lovely and their services are fairly priced. I really enjoy going to the clinic for treatments any day of the week (not just special occasions)!” – Nic A.
4. SKN Holistic Rejuvenation Clinic Inc.
Laser hair removal
|ADDRESS||1152 Mainland St #150, Vancouver, BC V6B 4X2, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone number: (604) 568-6333|
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday: 10 am – 7:30 pm|
Tuesday: 10 am – 7:30 pm
Wednesday: 10 am – 7:30 pm
Thursday: 10 am – 7:30 pm
Friday: 10 am – 6 pm
Saturday: 9 am – 5 pm
SKN is a cosmetic clinic that focuses on blending natural cosmetic products with next-level skincare offerings. One of the best examples of this unique combination is SKN’s HydraFacial treatment.
The HydraFacial treatment uses specialized products to painlessly extract dirt, blackheads, and even built-up pus from acne. In the clinic’s words, “there’s no pinching and you (clients) actually see what has been removed from your skin”.
Despite this unique approach to facials, we’ve found that most clients are particularly pleased with SKN’s ambiance. This is due to the fact that the clinic’s interior makes use of dim lights, monotone color schemes, and wooden furniture to produce a relaxing atmosphere.
Overall, SKN is an excellent option for clients who want to explore a mixture of natural cosmetics and high-tech therapy. With several facial treatments to choose from, the clinic is also capable of catering to various skin types.
Although SKN seems similar to one of our entries, we’d like to stress that it differs in its use of natural products and high-tech facial therapy. Along with this, the establishment also carries a more “spa-like” appearance compared to other clinics.
In terms of facial treatments, the unique blend of natural products and equipment makes this place alluring to many. Though we can’t speak on the efficacy of their facial treatments, the clinic’s ratings certainly suggest a favorable end result for many clients.
Highly highly recommend them and their hardworking staff
“The reason I ONLY do facials at SKN clinic and nowhere else is because of how relaxing the experience always is, with wet and warm towels to remove any product from your skin after cleansing (instead of cotton pads like most places nowadays do) or massages while you wait for a mask to dry, and the ambience and music is always so nice after a long day at work. I have tried cheap $30 groupon facials before, but trust me when I say that you get what you pay for. SKN Clinic for life :D, highly highly recommend them and their hardworking staff, you get so much more than what you pay for! My skin is glowing!” – Nelly S.
Seriously the best, most calming facial I’ve ever had.
“I was so pleased with every aspect of this. Was so calming as soon as you walk in, and the technique, the smells and the product were all perfect. Seriously the best, most calming facial I’ve ever had. I also picked up one of their products when I was there last week, and I’m so pleased also with that, my face is soo soft now, that I’m going to email and pick up more to complete the line. Thanks so much for the experience.” – Amanda P.
5. Formula Fig Kitsilano
High tech facials
|ADDRESS||2050 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1M9, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone number: (604) 423-3881|
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday: 8 am – 8 pm|
Tuesday: 8 am – 8 pm
Wednesday: 8 am – 8 pm
Thursday: 8 am – 8 pm
Friday: 8 am – 8 pm
Saturday: 8 am – 8 pm
Sunday: 8 am – 8 pm
Based on their extensive collection of equipment and offered services, Formula Fig is one of the most high-tech facial spas on our list. To keep things simple these folks divide their services into two categories consisting of injectables, and facials.
For facials in particular clients can choose from 8 different services involving everything from light therapy to microdermabrasion, and even electro facial therapy. By offering so many different facials, Fig is able to help a wider variety of clients.
Upon examining the reviews left by previous visitors, it seems that Fig has indeed helped many people achieve results with their modern equipment. In particular, many clients are extremely pleased with fig’s “All in” facial which includes microcurrents, light therapy, and extractions.
It’s worth noting that because Fig uses such high-tech equipment, many facials can be quite costly. So, to make its services more affordable the spa offers memberships which come with reduced prices for all services.
The high cost of facial treatments is perhaps the only true issue that many clients have with Formula Fig. But in all truth, few facial spas can offer the same number of high-tech facial treatments found at this establishment.
So, if you’re keen on trying out a high-tech facial spa, or you’d like to see the benefits these machines can give you, we’d certainly suggest visiting Formula Fig. If you intend to visit this place regularly, it may also be wise to consider a membership to save more on treatments.
The first time I stepped into Fig I was smitten.
“Fig quickly became my favourite place to be. The first time I stepped into Fig I was smitten. It’s so calming and soothing in there, and gorgeous to look at. It’s not just a pretty place, their treatments and staff are exceptional. I am a regular monthly visitor and I’ve noticed a huge improvement with my skin. I’ve had facials before and they never seemed to make a difference – I could almost replicate the results at home. Fig leverages quality products with tools that support and transform the skin. I love this place! Thank you for existing!” – Freya P.
Amazing high tech facials.
“Aesthetically comforting. Amazing high tech facials. Kai is the best – they apply the right amount of pressure and gets every inch of your face. Everyone is friendly and welcoming, and they take the time to explain the facial you’re getting, its benefits, and if there is anything you want to focus on, just let them know. I’m grateful to have found this place and if you go monthly for facials, the membership is definitely worth it!” – Aria G.
6. False Creek Skin Solution Clinic
|ADDRESS||660a Leg in Boot Square, Vancouver BC|
|CONTACT DETAILS||604 877 1299|
|OPERATING HOURS||Tuesday to Friday: 10am to 6pm|
Saturday: 10am to 4 pm
Monday: By appointment
False Creek Skin Solution Clinic is the place to go to for your facial concerns. They have different procedures that may help you out, no matter your problem.
They have HydraFacialTM to give you an instant glow, microneedling to generate new and healthy skin cells, Laser GenesisTM to rejuvenate your skin, and microdermabrasion for skin resurfacing, to name a few.
These procedures can help with acne, large pores, rough skin texture, dull and sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and a lot more. You just have to consult with them to know which would be best for you (their consultations are free, by the way!).
All of their nonsurgical aesthetic procedures make use of cutting edge technologies that are administered by highly trained staff, so you don’t have much to worry about.
Over the years, clients have raved about how much knowledge their staff has—you’d know this is truly their expertise. They’re also very professional yet caring, so you’re sure to be in safe hands!
If you need more than a facial, they offer procedures for your body and hair as well.
Since they mainly use equipment and technology for their procedures, this may not be the best option for those who would like a more traditional facial. We do have other places in this list for such.
This is a beautiful boutique clinic tucked away in False Creek.
The staff are very friendly & so welcoming.
I felt Natasha (the owner) truly cared about my experience, which was exceptional!
Janka is without a doubt one of the best, she has been taking care of my skin for several years & I would highly recommend her.
I had done my first hydrofacial care with Natasha. It was great and relaxing experience. I don’t think my skin never has been so soft and the next day morning no need to use any cream 😯 I am very impressed!
Thank you Skin Solution Clinic and you will see me back ❤️
This is one of the best experiences I have ever had. The owner Natasha is super knowledgeable and provides the best advice. She is particular about your personal experience as well as your outcome. The staff are amazing and Alexandra is a wonderful technician. They have been providing me with laser tightening and the results on my face and neck have been fantastic! They are my clinic for everything!
