3 High-tech facials to solve your skin problems

3 High-tech facials to solve your skin problems

What do we all want from a facial? Better skin, generally. Even better if the effects of said facial are visible and last longer than a day. Increasingly, people expect more from their facials, that’s why nowadays, traditional facials are deemed unnecessary expenses.

“Traditional facials” refer to the basic kind that usually involves five steps – a thorough cleansing, some sort of extraction to clear comedones and detox pores, a relaxing facial (and shoulder) massage, a treatment mask and the application of topical skincare products.
These traditional facials are deemed unnecessary because more and more people feel that they can do these skincare steps by themselves, in the comfort of their own home… No need to spend money to have someone to do it for you. But that’s why this growing crowd are swapping their traditional monthly facials for less frequent but more effective medi-spa treatments that harness machine-based problem solvers like radiofrequency and ultrasound skin firming and tightening, skin-smoothing microdermabrasion, skin infusions, IPL photorejuvenation, and so on.

Here are 3 such powered-up facials you should try for various skin types and concerns:

exilis ultra 360 face at Calvin Chan Aesthetics

#2. For anti-ageing concerns
What it is: A face lifting treatment that harnesses ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) energy for facial skin tightening, contouring and wrinkle reduction. Pairing ultrasound with RF energy enables faster heating of the skin tissue so the treatment is safer, more comfortable and more effective.
What it does: Exilis can also be done on the eyes, double chin and neck to stimulate collagen production for smoother and firmer skin texture. During the treatment, a hand piece is moved over the face, and you will feel a warm sensation as the heat energy but it doesn’t feel uncomfortable as the device has a cooling system to protect the upper skin layers, plus it constantly monitors the skin’s temperature and adjusts accordingly.
The results: You might be able to see subtle visible improvements from the second treatment session; however, it is common to see improvements up to 6 months later.
How often should you do it? The recommended number of treatments is between two to four sessions and are usually scheduled one to two weeks apart.
