The Lunar New Year means lots of good food and fun. It also means meeting relatives that you haven’t seen in a long time, so of course, you would want to look great. 

The best and fastest way to get a gorgeous glow: get a radiance boosting facial. These non-invasive treatments use everything from cryotherapy to light therapy, to instantly nourish and brighten skin to give you a fresh, youthful complexion.

If you want the benefits of an aesthetic procedure but with the comfort of a facial, then this is for you. It includes a peel to help remove dirt and dead skin cells, a mask infused with pearl powder to improve luminosity and hydration, and an ultrasound treatment to deliver vitamins into skin.

However, the best part of the facial is the Broadband Light therapy that sends light energy into the skin to boost its natural ability to fight ageing and give you an instant glow.

This treatment is made up of two main parts. First, a Pico laser treatment that targets pigmentation and promotes collagen stimulation. The second portion is a vitamin C facial, which uses iontophoresis to help “push” vitamin C into your skin to boost clarity and radiance, leaving your complexion soft, revitalised and illuminated. 

As a finishing touch, you’ll be treated to a customised mask to nourish your complexion and address potential issues.

This utilises the cold, sometimes going as low as -15 deg C, to revive your complexion, tighten skin and soften fine lines. The cryotherapy treatment increases oxygen and nutrient supply to skin, as well as boosts skin metabolism, to leave you your complexion radiant and luminous.

It’s great for women with dull skin and it can also help to treat sensitivity, dryness and sun damage. Another plus: the facial ends with a relaxing face massage to help stimulate circulation for a soft, rosy glow.

Price: $350 

Duration: 90min

Address: #04-10A Wheelock Place

If you want an instant glow, this oxygen-based facial can help. It uses oxygen in three ways. First, a contactless handpiece releases pure oxygen and saline water at supersonic pressure to gently pressure-wash your complexion, unclogging pores and removing dirt and makeup.

Next, hydrating and skin-clarifying active ingredients are infused into skin using a pressurised stream of oxygen.

And finally, hyperbaric, vitamin-doused oxygen is gently sprayed over your face to detox it, rev up metabolism and diminish imperfections. You’ll leave the clinic with your complexion looking fresh and radiant.
