We know that growing older is inevitable. Your body changes, along with your skin. But that doesn’t mean that you have to succumb to it. You can still keep your skin looking youthful and fresh.
Located in the heart of Orchard Road, medical aesthetics centre Privé Aesthetics lends a helping hand with two quick skin anti-ageing solutions to lift and firm the face and skin. More importantly, both treatments are non-invasive and come with little downtime, which makes them ideal lunchtime treatments you can zip in and out of, with your colleagues being none the wiser.
For a more lifted face
Juggling work, deadlines, going out with friends and taking care of family leaves us with hardly any me-time, let alone time to take care of our ageing skin.
To the rescue: Privé Clinic’s Elite Facelift ($380)
This US FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment promises to refresh your looks by encouraging collagen production in skin while tightening it, and softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It uses a combination of ultrasound technology and radio frequency (RF), which deliver heat energy deep into skin to tighten and firm it.
At the same time, the treatment utilises an advanced cooling technique to protect the skin surface, so that no damage is done.
A multi-faceted treatment, Elite Facelift is most well-known for tightening sagging skin and jowls to achieve a slimmer and more defined appearance. It is also perfect for firming and tightening other areas, like the neck, abdomen, arms, decolletage, buttocks and even the thighs.
For radiant, bouncy skin
If you’re looking to achieve that youthful glow, Privé’s Signature Anti-ageing Firming Facetherapy ($228) is the answer.
A multi-tasking treatment, it protects, repairs, hydrates and firms skin. This is done using a range of Cliniccare products made in Sweden, which are exclusive to Privé. It includes a gentle peel to slough off dead skin cells, a low-molecular hyaluronic acid essence to soothe and replenish skin’s lost moisture, anti-ageing serums enriched with antioxidants to protect and repair, and a mask to seal in all the benefits.
The secret lies in the low-molecular hyaluronic acid. If you didn’t already know, hyaluronic acid plays an important role in keeping skin healthy and youthful-looking. This active ingredient is not only able to retain moisture (up to 1,000 times its weight), but also helps repair damage done to the skin, keeping it hydrated and giving it a dewy suppleness.
After cleansing and exfoliation, the serums are infused into skin using electrophoresis, which helps deliver the active ingredients into the deeper layers of skin where they’re needed the most.
And to boost its effects, Omega Light Therapy follows. Depending on your skin’s needs, the therapist will select one these light treatments: red to help stimulate collagen production, blue to destroy acne-causing bacteria, green for pigmentation, and yellow for redness and microcirculation. To finish, a customised mask is applied to nourish and lift skin, leaving you looking refreshed and glowing.
