The Treatment

For the time-squeezed, this 30-minute facial treatment is ideal. It starts off with a quick consultation with my therapist about my skin concerns, from understanding my skin to the serums I need. She then cleanses my skin before using a device known as the vortex probe, which uses an exfoliation technology (hydra-dermabrasion) to give skin a thorough wash. During the treatment, the device moves using back and forth motions and I felt a tugging and sucking sensation that is painless. The DermaSOS programme then begins proper. It starts off with DermaSoften and the solution used contains aloe vera to dissolve impurities and soften dead skin cells, followed by DermaOpen. The solution is made with lactic acid to dissolve blackheads and promote smooth skin surface. Lastly, DermaSoothe uses a solution that contains niacinamide to calm and restore skin. To end off the treatment, a sheet mask coated with the Iren Skin Clear Lotion is applied to boost skin’s hydration levels and promote clarity. The mask is left on for 15 minutes.

The Verdict

I am very impressed with this quick facial and I love how it gives instant results with no downtime at all. My blackheads were removed and my skin appeared clearer and felt smoother. Post-facial, I didn’t even feel the need to apply any makeup as my skin was more radiant, dewier and healthier-looking. It is also painless and is a great pick-me-up to get you through the day.  $90, Face Shower Bar, #B1-17A Citylink Mall
