Acne, pigmentation, dull skin, wrinkles, fine lines – what’s your skin concern? Over the years, we’ve discovered a treasure trove of medical-grade treatments to help with whatever skin issues you’re facing. Try one of these non-invasive facials from our favourite aesthetic clinics in Singapore!
Glycolic Hydrating Facial
Entirely customisable for every skin type, this signature facial at The Belle Clinic incorporates a gentle peel that promises to lighten pigmentation without downtime, unclog pores, renew ageing skin and treat the dreaded acne. The peel features the star ingredient glycolic acid, which helps to exfoliate the upper layers of dead and damaged skin to reveal new and rejuvenated skin.
Suitable as a monthly facial for maintenance, this treatment starts with a consultation with Dr Maybelle Tan, who has over 20 years of clinical practice under her belt. As clinical peels can only be administered by a certified doctor, the whole process is monitored and customised by Dr Maybelle herself. The number of layers applied, concentration used and duration are personalised to suit your skin, whether you’re concerned about dryness, dullness, fine lines or congestion. After the peel, which takes only minutes to activate before it’s neutralised with a toner, an extraction follows to get rid of blackheads and unclog pores. Then, you’re treated to a calming mask to soothe and hydrate the skin, before an indulgent facial massage takes place.
Post-facial, you can look forward to brighter and clearer skin immediately, which only improves over the course of the week. As there’s no downtime required, the one-hour treatment is perfect as a lunchtime procedure before popping back into the office.
Chronos “Time Eraser” Therapy
If you’re bugged by pesky lines or sagging skin, this powerful facial at Bio Aesthetic might be the answer to your skin woes. The time-erasing treatment uses powerful skincare products from professional European beauty brand Juliette Armand to prevent and treat the visible signs of ageing, acting as a shield against dehydrated skin, biological ageing and oxidative damage.
Suitable for those who are 35 or above, the facial features four dimensions, all of which work to increase collagen production by close to four times over four weeks. The first aspect is a peeling system, which uses a potent mix of glycolic acid, salicylic acid, urea and keratoplast to remove dead skin cells, rejuvenate the skin, provide deep hydration and induce collagen production. The second dimension is the hydra system, which includes highand low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid for instant hydration and a firming effect on the skin. Also included in the mix is the proprietary Lanablue, a bluegreen algae extract found in a special source of water with unique nutritional properties to smooth the skin and boost the regeneration process.
Formulated with bio-peptides and marine collagen, the anti-ageing system stimulates collagen and elastin production, while plumping up the skin and smoothing out lines. Lastly, the antioxidant system contains alpha lipoic acid (ALA), which is 400 times more powerful than vitamin E and C in combating free radicals.
This medical-grade facial combines gentle cleansing, exfoliation and extraction with hydrating and antioxidant benefits, resulting in clearer and brighter skin without downtime.
Offered at W Skin & Laser Clinic, the popular facial promises to improve concerns like oily and acne-prone skin, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation and brown spots, but it also works equally well as a maintenance facial for those with ageing skin. Vortex technology is used to cleanse the pores and lift away impurities, while hydrating the skin with a nutrient-rich solution. As the vortex effect is designed to easily dislodge blackheads and whiteheads, extraction is quick and painless. Next, the patented HydroPeel tip gently exfoliates dead skin cells without any irritation, resulting in even and painless skin resurfacing results. This prepares the skin for the final step: the infusion of skincare ingredients.
With its spiral-like design, the VortexFusion device infuses hydrating solutions and potent antioxidants into the skin, resulting in a clearer and more even complexion after just one session.
With a series of sessions, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation is reduced. Monthly treatments are recommended to maintain the effects and keep breakouts at bay, especially for those with oily skin.
