For the face
#1: Art by Verita ART Deep Oxygen Skin Therapy
This is a calming and soothing facial treatment that uses nanotechnology to infuse pure oxygen to stimulate oxygenation and circulation within the skin. The treatment features potent natural ingredients such as organic pine bark and mushroom peptides that help to repair and enhance skin quality. The infusion of oxygen enhances the absorption of these antioxidants and skin rejuvenating peptides within the skin, resulting in a radiant, plump and healthy-looking complexion. The infusion of pure oxygen into the skin also promotes the discharge of carbon monoxide and waste, enhancing blood circulation and reducing skin stress and fatigue. $240 for 90 minutes. #04-01 Wheelock Place, 501 Orchard Road. Tel: 6732 0836
#2: Astalift Signature Facial
This facial treatment helps to nourish, protect and hydrate complexions. It first begins with a double cleanse.

Once done, a hydrating sheet mask is left on. After which, the therapist will use the same machine but with an EMS Technology to aid in ingredient penetration and stimulate collagen production. $68 for 60 minutes. #01-70 Nex Singapore, 23 Serangoon Central.

If dark circles are your main skin concern, then this treatment is suitable for you.

If you find that the skin on your armpits, inner thighs and kneecaps are darker than the rest of your body as a result of shaving, waxing or hyperpigmentation, this treatment is a must-visit. It helps to treat uneven pigmentation on the skin’s surface while working on the deeper layers of the skin to boost cellular activity, collagen production and promote regeneration. The painless treatment uses a MacPeel Technology that reportedly works twice as fast when compared to a traditional IPL procedure and also gives immediate effects with no downtime. $150 to $300 for 5 to 15 minutes depending on the area of concern.

#2: Mi the Salon Wonder Smooth and Jelly
Besides taking care of your skin, your hair needs some extra TLC too. These two new treatments help to hydrate and treat damaged locks. Both require five simple steps, which includes a moisture repair cream that incorporates SSVR-Silk, a ground-breaking silk-based ingredient that allows the solution to penetrate deeply into the hair fibres. Amino oil is then applied to replenish lost proteins often caused by bleached hair. What makes these two treatments different? The former targets rough, textured hair while the latter focuses on countering dry, parched and damaged hair. $160 and $180 for two hours. #03-19 Ion Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn. Tel: 6884-7757
#3: The Chelsea Clinic Emsculpt
Tackle excess tummy fat and saggy skin with this new non-invasive treatment that reportedly helps to improve the contours of your body (do note though that this is not a slimming treatment so don’t expect to lose a few pounds with this). Besides just burning fat, this treatment is said to be the first that supposedly helps to build muscles as well. It utilises a High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) Field Technology that causes powerful contractions, penetrating through the skin to impact fat as well as muscle tissues to strengthen, tone and firm the abdomen and buttocks.$4,400 for four 30 minute sessions. #05-08A Wheelock Place, 501 Orchard Road.
