Porcelain Aesthetics opened last July and offers a suite of medical-grade non-invasive treatments. I try out their latest offering, the Proionic facial, which reportedly helps sagging, dull skin.

After a double-cleanse and exfoliation, the therapist massages my face and neck with two flat electrodes, which resemble a doctor’s stethoscope and are hooked onto a radio frequency (RF) machine. One moves in circular motions for every inch of my face, including the eyelids, to reportedly improve blood circulation and drain toxins; the other to deliver RF waves deeper into skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The heat emitted is warm, like a sauna, with zero pain.

After that comes a facial massage. The therapist warms her hand in the most unconventional way: She attaches a clip from the machine to one of her fingers to allow RF waves to pass through her hands. Face is cleansed again after, followed by a soothing and hydrating cucumber gel mask for 10 minutes.

45 minutes later, my face is visibly slimmer with firmer skin, jawline looks sharper, and eye contours more defined. My complexion also looks brighter with significantly lightened dark circles, and my neck
looks less lined. $406.60, Porcelain Aesthetics (290 Orchard Road, The Paragon #04-48 Singapore 238859)
