CUSTOM-BLENDED REJU SERIES FACIAL TREATMENT

mtm labo, locations in Wheelock Place and Winsland House, mtmlabo.com

If your skincare isn’t giving you rapid results, a glow-giving facial that targets your specific skin concerns may be the answer. The “mtm” in mtm labo stands for made to measure, an approach that refers to its custom-blended skincare. This personalisation begins with a digital facial analysis that determines your skin’s true condition. A one-on-one consultation of the results and your lifestyle allows therapists to blend botanical extracts according to your personalised skin needs.

Skin dryness and clogged pores are some of the main reasons for a dull complexion. To achieve luminous skin before the holidays, mtm labo recommends the Custom-Blended Reju Series Facial Treatment, which brightens sallow skin and gives pores a deep cleanse.

The treatment begins with a cleansing and exfoliating routine and a pore-softening formula before the face is steamed. Blackhead extractions are never pleasant experiences but mtm labo’s therapists make these as efficient and painless as possible.

A non-invasive and cold ultrasonic device will then be applied to skin to brighten the complexion while dislodging any grime and dirt. The custom-blended mask follows with thick layers slathered onto skin. Meant to purify the dermis with rich moisture and nutrients, it smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin elasticity and restores clarity.

While you catch up on sleep, the mask targets the formation of skin melanin at its source to correct sallowness and greyness. It is also formulated with Ceramide 3, which offers intensive repair qualities for skin to regain smoothness. After the treatment, you will notice a more even skin tone and a complexion that is visibly more supple. With more sessions, expect brighter and radiant skin. Perfect to dazzle for the holidays.

INTENSIVE STRETCH MARK REMOVAL PROGRAMME

EstheClinic, locations islandwide, estheclinic.com.sg

Like cellulite, stretch marks are yet another pesky thing that is difficult to banish completely. With professional help, however, these marks can fade.

EstheClinic uses three steps in its treatment that requires zero downtime. It begins with a consultation to establish the condition of your marks. Those with more deep-set ones are advised to try the Intensive option. This has a longer treatment time and exposure to the ThermoControlled Radiofrequency step, which is the first stage of the experience.

Carried out using a three-pronged applicator, the procedure involves high heat that may sting in the beginning as the therapist initially uses a higher level to warm up the skin. This later becomes tolerable, with only a feeling of mild warmth. Relax as the radiofrequency waves penetrate deep into the skin’s sub-dermal and inner dermis layers to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin in the longer run.

A micro-needling device will then be rolled onto the skin’s surface. The tiny needles create microscopic wounds in the skin to kick-start the formation of new collagen, the skin’s natural scaffold, to improve the appearance of the stretch marks. A serum is applied next, which contains chlorophyll in the formulation to better absorb the subsequent LED photo modulation technology.
