Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, smoking, age, and a lot more factors could cause our skin to appear tired and sallow. Although it is natural for the skin to lose its elasticity once you reach your 20s’, it is not normal if the skin-ageing effects start to progress fast. Fortunately, you can slow down skin-ageing through various facial treatments in Singapore.
How Can Facials Help Boost Skin Health
The primary goal of facials is to rejuvenate the skin. Part of the facial process is to exfoliate the skin to get rid of the dead skin cells and remove all the oil and dirt on the pores. After that, an aesthetician will use a moisturiser or a serum to keep your skin hydrated.
Some facials are more advanced. Medical aesthetic clinics are now offering facial treatments which use innovative dermatological technologies. Most are non-invasive and serve as alternative treatments to a surgical facelift. These require minimal downtime and entail faster results. You can even go shopping right after the treatment!
Facial Treatment Options in Singapore
Here are some of the facial treatment options in Singapore that you may want to consider today.
- Radio Frequency (RF) Facial Treatment
Skip using topical creams that do not seem to be effective in getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines. You can get an instantly smooth, wrinkle-free skin with RF facial treatment!
The treatment uses radiofrequency technology to tighten your skin. An aesthetician will use a gently heated applicator or handpiece, gliding it over your face with repeated motion. The heat will reach into the deepest layers of your skin to generate heat shock proteins. These proteins will be responsible for boosting the collagen and elastin fibres on the skin. Other benefits of this facial treatment are contouring and slimming the face.
- LHE (Light and Heat Energy) Radiancy Facial Treatment
LHE is a facial treatment suitable for patients who want to get rid of their acne marks and age spots. It also works for making the skin tone look even.
It is often confused with lasers, but the treatment process is different. Instead of using a pointed beam of light to target a specific dark spot and blemish on the face, LHE uses both light and heat to treat large areas of the skin. The heat is responsible for damaging the lesions that cause the skin to darken. Moreover, it is a gentler procedure than laser, thus there will be no signs of burning or scarring on the skin.
Aside from removing lightening sunspots and blemishes, LHE is also effective in rejuvenating the skin. Just like the RF treatment, it boosts the production of collagen and helps tighten the skin.
- Oxy Liqui Facial Treatment (Oxygen Anti-Acne Facial Treatment)
Simple facial treatments that do not require high and advanced dermatological equipment to achieve glowing and bright skin exist. One of which is the Oxy Liqui Facial Treatment.
Using a wand or a handpiece, an aesthetician will spray a high-pressurised oxygen to your skin. As oxygen is antibacterial, you will experience a cooling effect on your skin, calming down signs of redness. The oxygenation process helps skin cells to better absorb the hyaluronic acid serum that will later be applied on the face. Another benefit of it is that it helps kill Propionibacterium or the bacteria that causes the formation of acne. Thus, this facial treatment is also considered as an effective acne facial procedure.
Oxy Liqui is ideal for patients who do not want to undergo chemical-based treatments because of their sensitive skin. It doesn’t cause major side effects like irritation and swelling, unlike other treatments.
Maintaining healthy and younger-looking skin is one way you can boost your confidence. So, consider trying some of these facial treatments in Singapore to improve your skin. You can get these innovative treatments here at our clinic in Indulgence Beauty!
