The Best Facials To Get Snatched Just In Time For Chinese New Year
For a brighter, more radiant complexion: Estheclinic Intense Glow Treatment, $380 for 40 to 60 minutes
This utilises a combination of the clinic’s patented MacPeel IPL technology and non-invasive LED photomodulation technology to regenerate skin from the inside, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. The former helps to rejuvenate and heal the skin from within, promotes collagen production and is even said to reduce the size of enlarged pores. The latter uses red and yellow light to activate new collagen formation and simultaneously inhibit the breakdown of existing collagen, helping to delay signs of ageing for a plumper, firmer and more youthful look. The result: skin tone is more even, faded dark spots, refined pores, and a noticeable glow.
