After cleansing and exfoliating my skin, the therapist conducts a microcurrent peel with a circular handheld device – it emits tiny electrical impulses at an ultra-low frequency to firm and tone skin. The same device is then used to suction my skin with vacuum pressure, which supposedly helps to improve lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. Next, the device produces polarised bioactive currents to reportedly stimulate skin cells to produce collagen and restore moisture. A sheet mask infused with a hydrating essence is then placed on my face, before the therapist carries out a facial massage with the device. To end, red LED light – said to boost energy in skin cells and help them repair faster – is shone over my skin, before a face and shoulder massage, then skincare.
My complexion appeared slightly brighter and smoother immediately after, and I like how everything took less than an hour, making it a suitable lunchtime pick-me-up. #03-05 Wheelock Place, tel: 6733-7055
