Whether you are looking for something for oily skin or for a face lift in a bottle – we have a great list of products and treatments for you, from budget friendly to a little more pricey. Night creams, lifting serums or Ion Remedy treatment are worth trying to help tired skin and keep skin toned and firm.
BTL Exilis Elite (from $400)
A cheaper and safer alternative to surgery, this is an ideal treatment for sagging skin, including to spot-correct problem areas. The device uses a technique that delivers thermal energy to all the layers of the skin, from the topmost layer right down to the deeper dermal tissue. As well as tighter, firmer skin, you can also look forward to the reduction of any cellulite. While two to four sessions are recommended to treat skin laxity, you may see visible improvements after just one session.
From Dr Soh Lea Sar, Medical Director of Healthsprings Laser and Aesthetic Clinic: What’s your advice for choosing an anti-ageing treatment? While non-surgical treatments can produce significant improvements, the results will not be as dramatic as surgery. Choose something that is medically safe and promises reasonable results according to your expectations. Also, pick a treatment you’re comfortable with; it shouldn’t be a torture session!
Ion Remedy Facial ($150)
Tucked inside a picturesque shophouse, Queen’s Market is a boutique Japanese salon known for its herbal facials, manicures and massages.
Energise tired, lined skin with a pampering Ion Remedy facial session, which aims to detoxify and re-contour the face. Suitable for women of all ages and skin types, the facial uses products from Japanese brand & Ratia which are formulated with rice, soy beans and guava. These plant-based, antioxidant-rich products are gentle and fragrance-free, and are recommended for those with sensitive or eczema-prone skin. The session includes a lymphatic facial massage to get rid of toxins, increase blood circulation and reduce puffiness.
The highlight of the 90-minute treatment? A gold ion mask which promises to promotes collagen production, enhance metabolism and lift facial lines. Immediate effects, they say, include a brighter complexion, a sharper jawline, fewer lines and less sagging.
