Power Nano Facial, $350–$480 for 45 minutes, at REvive Aesthetics.
A common problem with facials is you often have to wait for a few session before you see any real results.
REvive Aesthetic’s new Power Nano Facial, however, promises the results of 10 facials within a single session – a big claim but one worth finding (and testing) out.
A non-invasive treatment using Korea-German technology of nano needles, the painless treatment focuses on transporting concentrated essence (regenerative, whitening, brightening and whitening) deep into the derma layers of the skin which when coupled with radio frequency (RF) that additionally stimulates collagen, elastin fibre and hyaluronic acid reproduction which is always a boon for aging.
The treatment starts with a thorough double cleanse to ensure all the goodness is ready to be absorbed. While the sound of needles sounds scary, in reality it’s a handheld contraption that “rolls” over the face dispensing the essence. Starting from the chin, the therapist covers small areas each time and once complete further massages the essence in by hand using firm upward strokes. Throughout the treatment she sporadically checks in on the comfort level and the only time it ever feels slightly uncomfortable is the forehead where a slight heat is felt.
Once the derma needle portion is done, two rounds of a cold blast treatment is administered to lock in the essence. This part feels slightly more uncomfortable but bearable, the little “shocks” are more uncomfortable due to the temperature. To end, a thick jelly like mask is slathered all over the face to harden and allow all the actives to absorb undisturbed. 45 minutes later the result is lighter, brighter skin. My pores appear smaller and light pigmentation marks from sun damage appear to have lightened slightly. Added bonus: my jawline appears sharper as well.
Ultimately what’s great about this Facial is it’s immediate result plus very little commitment in terms of time and recovery needed. It’s a great perk me up ahead of a big event and with multiple sessions might even deliver me a Korean movie star-esque complexion.
