IDS Clinic

Beach holidays make for a fabulous vacation, but for the complexion-conscious, the very thought of having to undo all that UV damage can be a real turn-off. The IDS Hydro Therapeutics Treatment promises to reveal visibly brighter skin and reverse the effects of UV damage in just 60 minutes.

The session begins with a Hydrafacial — a specially calibrated water-jet stream device is used. This gentle yet powerful jet is applied, along with the clinic’s proprietary Multi Minerals solution to give skin a thorough exfoliation. 

Next is a second round of cleansing using ultrasonic technology to clear clogs and purify pores. A potent vitamin C essence is then applied and iontophoresis (electrical stimulation) encourages the active ingredients to reach the deeper levels of the skin. A customised soothing mask is the final step of this treatment, with the aim of calming and replenishing the skin.

With this teatment’s winning combination of the Hydrafacial for gentle exfoliation, ultrasonic deep cleansing plus the vitamin C essence and customised mask, your skin can start to look its best — luminous, clear and perfectly hydrated.

IDS Clinic

Dead skin cells, grime and “peach fuzz” could be sabotaging your diligent skin-whitening regime. They don’t just make skin look dull, they also cause makeup to become caked over the course of the day, so you can’t simply cover these problems. Thankfully, there’s the IDS Sugar Therapeutics Treatment to help you achieve the soft, smooth, and clear skin you want.

The first step consists of a sugar peel: A food-grade sugar paste is applied to the skin, then gently rubbed off when dried. This process gets rid of stubborn dead cells and tiny facial hairs, working like a wax.

Next, a lightening peptide essence — chockfull of vitamin C — is applied, followed by a cooling mask chosen to suit the individual’s skin condition. Penetration of active ingredients into deeper layers of the skin is aided by a Cryo Stamp machine. As a final step, the IDS Oil-Free Moisturiser and Sunscreen is applied so that your newly smoothed complexion is protected.

In half an hour, you’ll leave IDS clinic with baby-smooth skin and a radiant glow, with time to spare for lunch!

Hair Maximizer Program, $3,478

The Sloane Clinic

Ever wished your hair was as lush and voluminous as a Victoria’s Secret Angel’s? You can, with The Sloane Clinic’s Hair Maximizer Program. Its dual approach combines the revolutionary Revitascalp treatment with Revage 670 laser for best results.

Revitascalp is a 40-minute treatment that sends a targeted blast of nutrients into your scalp. Some of these ingredients include vitamin B12, folic acid, protein-building amino acids and minoxidil, clinically proven to help slow down the production of DHT (which hinders hair production).

The Revage 670 laser hair rejuvenation is an FDA-approved low-level laser therapy. It uses Rotational PhotoTherapy (RPT) to coax thinning hair back to thick, lustrous glory. This laser contains 30 laser diodes that rotate 180 degrees around your scalp, emitting painless laser energy to stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles.

The Hair Maximizer Program has been clinically proven to increase hair density and thickness by up to 40 per cent, and has a 85 per cent success rate in slowing hair loss.

The Sloane Clinic

Look your brilliant best with the Non-Invasive 3D Facelift Program from The Sloane Clinic. This regimen takes on a two-pronged approach, combining two US FDA-approved treatments for lifting and youth-enhancing effects. The first, UltheraTM, works below the surface of skin to stimulate skin tightening and lifting. You’ll be able to see and feel reduced droopiness and the lifting of sagging skin. Other additional benefits include a more defined jaw line, as well as a more even skin tone.

The second treatment, ThermageTM, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation and tightening procedure that uses radio frequencies to boost the natural renewal of collagen. Combined with the ThermageTM treatment, radio-frequency energy is released in short, rapid pulses, which induces the collagen boost at a level that is comfortable yet effective.

Apart from the two superstar treatments, the Non-Invasive 3D Facelift Program also includes two silver-ion regenerating masks to leave skin fresh and glowing with youth.

Estetica

It is true that the eyes are the windows to the soul. But they also often betray our age: Lack of sleep, overexposure to blue light (that comes from exposure to computer and smartphone screens), as well as general stress are some of the common causes of tired-looking eyes, dark eye circles and eye bags.

Try Estetica’s OptimaLift A+ Eye Therapy. This speciality eye treatment uses state-of-the-art equipment and a unique eye massage technique to deliver the powerful ingredients from the best-selling OptimaLift A+ Eye Contour Mask exactly where they’re needed. The two key ingredients here are Eyeseryl®, a peptide that prevents fluid retention and reduces puffiness; and Haloxyl™, which targets dark eye circles.

Estetica’s eye massage technique has the added benefit of relaxing eyes, flushing out accumulated toxins from the skin and combating signs of premature ageing.

A quick and beneficial alternative to a full facial, this relaxing eye treatment leaves you feeling well-rested and bright-eyed in just one hour.

Micro-Resurfacing Rejuvenation (FACE)

One Beauty Spa
(from $228* (60 mins). FIRST TRIAL AT $48*)

Skin-resurfacing procedures like chemical peels and laser sessions are the usual treatments for wrinkles and acne scars. However, these treatments are pricey and can be quite invasive.

For skin-smoothening results without the downtime and hefty price tag, One Beauty Spa’s Micro-Resurfacing Rejuvenation is one treatment to consider.

A derma-roller with micro-needles is applied with different intensities to the skin to activate the body’s wound-healing abilities and kickstart skin renewal.

The derma-roller also helps the active ingredients in the specially customised skincare cocktails to penetrate deeper into the dermis for better efficacy. It also stimulates collagen synthesis for smoother and firmer skin. Compared to other resurfacing tecnhiques, this treatment is free from discomfort and doesn’t harm healthy skin cells in the process. To top it off, there is a medical-grade collagen mask that calms the skin, prevents inflammation and replenishes skin’s nutrients for a radiant, supple complexion. 

This is one treatment that will help to minimise acne and pitted scars, improving congested skin and balancing oiliness. It also refines pores and gives you skin that’s smoother, plumper and more even tone and texture.

TARA BLISS

Hoping to tone up your mid-section? Consider your wish granted, thanks to TARA Bliss’ Slim and Contour Tummy Trimming Treatment. This 60-minute targeted slimming treatment consists of two components: Radio Frequency (RF) Slimming, and Slimming Body Wrap.

The first part, RF Slimming, is a 30-minute non-invasive procedure that uses high frequency electric currents to produce heat (kept to a tolerable 42 degrees Celsius) to reach below the skin and target the stubborn stored fat. The deep, controlled uniform heating of the fat causes it to liquify and eventually pass out of the body. Apart from inch loss, RF Slimming also effectively increases collagen synthesis and improves blood circulation.

After RF Slimming, there’s a 30-minute full Slimming Body Wrap, which removes excess fluid and toxins from the body. Using mud and other organic ingredients to wrap the torso, arms and legs, the heat and compression generated from the treatment helps firm and smoothen the skin, and get rid of water retention. Coupled with the RF Slimming segment, the body wrap leaves you with tightened, smooth skin with a noticeable reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

Heavenly Spa By Westin

This speciality massage draws on techniques from three cultures — Chinese, Malay, and Indian — for ultimate relaxation. The spa’s experienced therapists use precise, continual and consistent movements and techniques — focusing on areas with tension — to relieve pain and fatigue and rebalance the body’s energy.

The first part of the massage is performed on the back — a common problem area for those who spend hours sitting in front of the computer every day. The Chinese Gun Fa method is used here, in which a rolling technique targets accupressure points to stimulate the body’s meridian points, restoring its delicate internal balance.

Next, the abdomen is massaged using a traditional Malay method that gently stimulates and aids the elimination of toxins to improve digestion. The treatment culminates in a relaxing foot massage: Employing an Ayurvedic method drawn from Indian culture, a special Kansu metal bowl is used — it is said to dispel excess body heat and boost energy levels. After a long, hard week at work, this indulgent treatment is just what we all need.
