Whether your skin craves hydration or it’s breakout–prone, consider treating it to one of these 5 award-winning treatments.
All of the facials here were featured in the Spa Awards 2018, produced annually by Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore, a fellow SPH Magazines title.
Thanks to Estetica’s BB Dewy Shine Face Therapy ($350 for 45 minutes), a host of skin conditions like acne scars, dull skin, pigmentation and enlarged pores can be a thing of the past. The brand’s latest innovation uses MTS (Micro Needle Therapy System) to apply brightening ampoules infused with healing properties to boost hydration and speed up cellular renewal.
Don’t be intimidated by its name: All you feel is a light buzzing vibration as it is used on your skin. In addition to this, these naturally tinted ampoules also reduce the appearance of fine lines, visible pores and dark eye circles for a more uniform skin tone. Rest assured, the products used are rigorously tested to ensure that all ingredients are non-comedogenic and gentle.
Devised to expel toxins and impurities, Yakson House Singapore’s Acne Care treatment ($198 for 90 minutes) is for those with oily skin prone to frequent breakouts. The treatment’s highlights include an exfoliation of the skin using refined organic sea salt to lift dead skin cells, an application of a vitamin C ampoule to reduce scarring and inflammation, as well as an upper body massage to stimulate the lymph nodes to improve the elimination of toxins from the body.
The products target over-active sebaceous glands to help balance your skin’s natural PH levels. Over time, expect to see firmer facial muscles, more elastic skin, and a clearer complexion, resulting in a more youthful-looking and brighter appearance.
Healthy and radiant skin, full of moisture and firmness has long been regarded as an ideal. Attain that look with ART by Verita’s Cryolift Correct Hydra Therapy ($210 for 75 minutes). Suitable for all skin types, this gentle yet power-packed facial calms inflammation-prone skin and replenishes lost moisture.
To begin, your therapist cleanses and exfoliates your skin thoroughly. Next, a cryotherapy probe is used to cool skin’s temperature as you’re treated to ART’s proprietary Hydra Cryo-Serum. What follows? A relaxing facial massage before a Hyaluronic Youth Mask is applied for a refreshing boost.
Get this: Porcelain Face Spa’s signature Porcelain Illuminate facial ($425.86 for 75 minutes) uses diamonds and a state-of-the-art microdermabrasion device to help give your face a brighter, clearer, fresher-looking mien. Once your skin type has been assessed, your therapist gently works on your face with an ultra-fine diamond tip.
Soft movements rid the outermost layer of dull skin before antioxidant-rich nutrients like polyphenol – derived from white grape wine and fresh fruit pulp – exfoliate the epidermis, leaving your skin primed and ready for the OxyPulse lymphatic facial massage and Floral Essence massage. Finally, all the benefits are sealed into skin with the application of the Hydrocare Biocellulose Mask.
DrSpa’s Glow Mira-Lift signature treatment ($888 for 120 minutes) comprises state-of-the-art technology like radio frequency, gold-plated derma-channelling and ionwave – designed to stimulate collagen remodelling and accelerate cellular activity – plus an infusion of pure hyaluronic acid. This combination ensures deep cellular penetration so that your skin reaps maximum benefits. Ideal for anyone looking to restore firmness and radiance, this all-in-one treatment helps improve skin with no down-time.
