Sometimes we need more than a standard spa treatment as part of our travels. Fortunately, the spas and salons at Dubai International have some signature treatments that promise real results. You might not look 10 years younger (it’s science not magic), but you can expect skin that glows and to say goodbye to those aches and pains.
At this unique open spa in Terminal 3, Concourse A, you can enjoy everything from express treatments to full service spa therapies with professional products. Be Relax uses French brand Talika, known for 90-95 percent natural products that deliver effective, immediate results. But the spa’s latest treatment goes one step further. The Genius Light Mask from Talika uses patented technology inspired by NASA, no less. The fancy face gear combines light therapy and electrostimulation to lift, firm, tone, highlight and smooth skin. Basically to iron out our wrinkles, right? For a more affordable option, Reusable Eye Therapy patches are a great pre-flight buy.

There are few places as relaxing as Dubai International Hotel’s Timeless Spa. So it’s fitting that here the results-driven treatments are those rooted in ancient therapies, the techniques of which have been perfected over 100s of years. To knead out all those kinks before a long flight, try the Hot Stone Therapy, which uses heat from warmed volcanic stones combined with therapeutic oils to promote deep muscle and tissue relaxation. Make that booking, pronto.
