Feeling a bit tense from sitting in an office all day? Perhaps an afternoon of pampering by a team of beauty professionals is just what you need to reset and revitalise! The only problem is that it’s not always easy to find a truly good aesthetic centre in Hong Kong. Most such local businesses are known to be intensely hard-sell, with pushy customer service focused on wringing out as much money out of the customer as possible.
That’s why we were pleasantly surprised when we spent a relaxing afternoon at Japanese hair removal and aesthetic centre Ginza Calla and experienced a much-valued Japanese level of care and customer service first-hand. From the tranquil ambience to the professional consultation and the friendly staff, Ginza Calla delivers an unparalleled experience to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit.
The moment you step into the centre’s Zen space and are showered with warm Japanese greetings, you know that a one-of-a-kind luxury experience is in order. Outfitted with warm wooden furnishings and plush red lounge benches, Ginza Calla tailors its environment to soothe to the senses and help city-dwellers disconnect from the chatter and chaos of everyday life. Sip on complimentary cups of soothing tea as you get settled in to calming music and let all outside stresses melt away. Once the mind is calm, your body will naturally follow in relaxation—the heated spa bed and cosy blankets help too, of course.
Attention to detail is the way to set oneself apart in a class above the rest, and the therapists at Ginza Calla excel at anticipating their customers’ needs and treating customers with utmost care and patience. Before undertaking your hair removal or facial treatment, you are asked to fill out a detailed form regarding your health and skin condition, which will be thoroughly reviewed with you in the pre-treatment consultation. Your therapist will then walk you through the entire treatment, explaining what each step involves so that you know exactly what to expect. And if you have specific needs or preferences? Voice them out and rest assured that they will make every effort to accommodate you to the fullest!
Having firmly established themselves in the competitive Japanese market for 27 years, Ginza Calla brings nearly three decades of experience to their craft—but it doesn’t stop there. The centre’s staff receive continuous training to maintain impeccable service standards and stay abreast of the latest industry trends and technology. You can sense their professionalism during the treatment when the aesthetician swiftly yet meticulously works her magic on you, getting your skin into glowing, tip-top condition with little to no discomfort. So let the worries ease away and relax knowing that on the receiving end of Ginza Calla’s technical expertise, you are (literally) in good hands.
The world of beauty is ever-evolving and a good aesthetics centre needs to keep up to date with new trends to be ahead in the market. Ginza Calla understands their clients’ needs and innovates new ones, importing trending treatments regularly and using technology specifically designed for their customer base. You can be sure you’re using the world’s best in speed and accuracy—a godsend when it comes to services that you need to be reliable and effective.
In terms of hair removal options, the most time-saving yet efficient option at Ginza Calla is Splendor X, an EU-certified technology which involves dual-wavelength lasers working simultaneously. With this treatment, efficient hair removal for the entire body requires just six speedy sessions—perfect for our packed Hong Kong schedules! Traditional lasers use a rounded emission point, whereas Splendor X works on a square-shaped grid matrix; this means that there are no spots left untreated by the laser, whereas circles will leave gaps between the rounded edges. After the full treatment, customers will see a decrease in pore size, with the skin becoming smoother and more refined.
Another type of hair removal service available at Ginza Calla is their exclusive Tri R, a patented Japanese technology developed by the company themselves for Asian customers. Apart from effective hair removal, Tri R also works to whiten and rejuvenate the skin at the same time. Mixing multiple wavelengths means that this service is suitable even for those with sensitive skin—if you have a low pain tolerance, then this gentle treatment will suit you to a tee. Tri R is their crown product, and it’s easy to see why.
In addition to these groundbreaking hair removal technologies, Ginza Calla also offers over 30 top-notch facials to address every skin type and concern. Fans of skincare will already have heard about the effectiveness of Thermage and HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound), which use high-energy, focused ultrasound to adjust and stimulate the skin’s deeper layers, achieving contouring, anti-ageing, and slimming effects. If you’ve ever been envious of actresses’ facial contours, wanted a sharper jawline, or simply want to uplift ageing skin, then Thermage and HIFU treatments are your answer. Alternatively, we love their Aqua Peel treatment for an instant boost of moisture and glow. The deep-cleansing treatment uses a suction device to gently pull dirt and impurities out of your skin, all the while exfoliating and infusing skin-replenishing nutrients straight into the dermis!
After a blissful afternoon of pampering aesthetic treatments, you are guaranteed to step out of the centre with beautifully silky-smooth skin and feeling positively radiant. But we know there’s still one concern on your mind—are the results going to last? After all, what’s the point of paying for a service that doesn’t perform in the long run? Particularly when it comes to self-care services, there’s little more frustrating than seeing your initial improvements slowly deteriorating back to square one.
Luckily, Ginza Calla is way ahead of the game, using the latest Japanese innovation and technology to bring you results that will impress and last well into the future without hassle. And you can tell that they truly care if customers achieve their intended results—they even conduct a follow-up after your appointment via WhatsApp to make sure that you’re happy with how your treatment turned out. Going above and beyond in every aspect of their service, it’s no wonder why Rakuten Research in Japan has ranked Ginza Calla number one in hair removal effectiveness, customer satisfaction, company reliability, and therapist skills!
With 52 salons already established in the Japanese market, Ginza Calla expands its operations to three Hong Kong branches so that we, too, can enjoy their premium hair removal services.
