Skin Resurfacing or Photofacial: Which Treatment is Best for You?

Skin Resurfacing and Photofacial in Singapore - Is this for you?

The Hollywood Facial Rejuvenation

This is for you if:

You want your skin to glow

This medical facial will get your skin looking red-carpet-ready, and with no downtime. It creates a glowing, even skin tone, gives a boost of hydration to plump up the skin’s texture and repairs blemishes. The glow factor is immediate, and will last for at least two weeks. It’s recommended you have the facial just before an event, or every month for a sustained glow.

For the first step, you’ll be given a microdermabrasion treatment with an infusion of hyaluronic acid. This both exfoliates and plumps up the skin’s surface thanks to the hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid.

The second step is called laser genesis – this increases blood circulation, resulting in a rosy hue. It also shrinks pores and reduces acne scarring.

The final step is glycolic peel – this brings out a glow, while smoothing the skin’s texture and reducing the appearance of scars and blemishes in a double hit.

Photo Facial

This is for you if:

You want to get rid of dark spots, broken capillaries and sun damage

Photo facials are a quick, non invasive and effective way of slowing down the ageing of our skin. They use intense pulsed light-based technology (IPL) to rejuvenate the complexion by lightening dark patches and treating broken capillaries and the signs of sun damage. The light stimulates collagen production for firmness and resilience.

This treatment takes around 20 minutes and has minimal or no downtime. Six initial sessions are recommended at one-month interval, and once every two to three months thereafter.
