Most conservative countries like Singapore often frown upon facial treatments and other aesthetic procedures. People have an instil misconception that these create unnatural results and it’s just a luxurious thing. However, the good news is that Singapore is becoming more liberal when it comes to these. No longer do most people become secretive about getting an acne facial or a laser treatment. It’s slowly becoming a normal part of people’s lifestyles!
Common Concerns in Facial Treatments
Although it becomes more acceptable in Singapore, some are still adamant about it because of these reasons:
It Seems Quite Expensive
Indeed, a S$200 facial treatment doesn’t sound attractive. It’s a lavish price compared to Over-the-Counter (OTC) facial creams that can cost up to S$40. At first glance, it is more practical to choose acne creams because it’s cheaper. But, these topical creams in drugstores often take a long time before you can see some visible results on your face. If you try to calculate the overall cost of continuously buying facial creams to keep your acne at bay, then it might be more expensive than getting professional facial treatment. Why? It’s because its effects are almost immediate, and it lasts longer than various topical creams.
What’s more, is that you will only have to get a facial at least once a month. It’s the best routine for acne facials because your skin usually undergoes a skin cell turnover after 28 days. Simply put, the outer layer of your skin (which is the epidermis) is “renewed” so that new cells will take over the skin. So, your skin needs to get pampered again to maximise the results of an acne facial.
It Might Thin Down Your Skin
When you hear the word “laser”, you would normally think that it’s going to do more harm than good on your skin. You are afraid it might thin it down. Maybe, because you have watched so many sci-fi and action movies and you can see how lasers are burning people’s skins and leaving scars. However, lasers in aesthetic clinics and beauty salons do the opposite. It can stimulate the production of collagen on the skin, thus making it smoother and more radiant.
How Can You Benefit from Facial Treatments
You might still feel sceptical about the pros of facial treatments even after debunking some of its misconceptions. So, here’s how some of the common facials can make wonders on your skin:
- In Singapore, you’ll find the best extraction facials that can help remove all your blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. It unclogs your pores, so there’ll be no dirt, debris and bacteria left on your skin. You are less likely to experience breakouts because of this.
- Facial massages are also common in medical, aesthetic clinics. Not only will it help you feel relaxed, but it will also get rid of the impurities on your skin, so you’ll have a naturally glowing complexion.
- Some facials also have anti-ageing effects. People who are in their 20s or 30s use this as a preventive measure against skin ageing because it improves skin elasticity. Thus, they’ll have fewer wrinkles and fine lines on their face.
Facial treatments help improve your skin’s appearance— not to alter your skin’s natural beauty. So, you should get rid of the idea that it’s some kind of a “taboo”. It’s totally normal to go to a beauty salon to consult a skin specialist about getting facial treatments. Think of it this way: it’s just like an investment to yourself. You’ll feel good and more confident in yourself because you can see that you are naturally looking more beautiful and attractive every day, thanks to those facial treatments.
