D'skin: Oxygenating Treatment Facial

1 comment:

D'skin, one of the leading skin treatment centres in Singapore, has brought in Soft Plus, a standalone PC-powered skin assessment system. They are one of the first skin treatment centres to offer a pH level assessment. 

Why should you care about your skin's pH level, you ask?

Well, a balanced pH level can eliminate usual skin woes such as acne, wrinkles and inflammation. I didn't know that! My usual facial place does not offer this service for sure. 

At D'skin, the therapist will conduct a series of "tests" on my face and explain the results to me. I will get to know about my hydration, sebum, elasticity and melanin levels and how I can improve my skin conditions.

Note that Soft Plus is endorsed and used by medical clinics and doctors, for skin diagnosis and reports, to track skin age and progress following every treatment. 

They offer a variety of treatments to suit each skin type and requirements. 

I also learnt why my skin is constantly oily. Turns out I have combination skin: dry skin underneath and oily skin on the surface. This is because the inner layers of my skin produce oil to counter my dry skin and so my skin is sometimes oily. I always thought I just had pure oily skin and as such, I didn't like to use any oil or gel based products because they made my face shine even more.

In actual fact, for people with skin like mine, we should use more hydration-based products so as to moisturise the skin so that there will not be excess of oil or sebum produced. Now I know!

I am pleased to say I was offered the Oxygenating Treatment (O2) worth $198, perfect for my combination skin. For me, I am usually busy every day and my skin gets tired and dehydrated from running around. With this treatment, D'skin aims to strengthen my skin elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, diminish pores, and increase my hydration level up to 40%. That was quite a mouthful. 


My review of the facial:

I thoroughly enjoyed it! Besides the usual cleansing, extraction and mask, the oxygen machine was employed to - how do I put it - "oxygenise" my face. A small pen-like object (I think, that was how I felt it was, since my eyes were closed) went over my face several times at strategic spots like forehead, cheekbones and chin, and was pressed down. I could feel the oxygen entering my face, if you know what I mean? My skin felt cool and relaxed, and after the facial it was obvious that it looked more hydrated, plump and renewed. 

I also liked how they included a neck and shoulder massage, which was very comfortable and good for de-stressing. There was oil applied, which smelled good and helped me relax my tense muscles further. I felt that this is a service that is generously given by D'skin, because it is not usual at facial salons.

I am speaking from a person who has done facials at numerous places and signed countless facial packages over the years. And this one has an "APPROVED" stamp all over it. 

Sure, it might be a little steep in pricing, but honestly, you only have one skin, one face. Choose the best. They offer facial packages that are super flexible, for e.g: 

$2,000 for 2500 credits, at $1 = 1 credit
So this means, they give you 500 free credits (essentially $500) upon signing up of the package, and you can choose from any of their treatments every time you visit them for a facial, and they will deduct the credits (according to the treatment price) accordingly. Some days you just want a basic facial, some days you want a pampering one. Our skin has its up and down days too, so this package is specially tailored to suit every customer's needs.

Other treatments they have (but not tried by me):

- Soft Light / Cold Light Therapy ($498): light of specific wavelengths delivered to the skin to stimulate and activate cellular processes deep within the skin layers. Triggers the production of collagen and elastin, to combat visible signs of ageing.

- Photo Rejuvenation ($348): non-evasive treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to penetrate and treat different layers of skin. Helps in treating acne, skin damage from sun, visible broken capillaries, hyper pigmentation and enlarged pores.

- Supreme CO2 Phototherapy ($468): Treats dark circles and visibly minimise eye bags. Helps to refresh skin tone and restore youthful skin, with no downtime. Cell-detox and also increases blood circulation. 

If you don't take care of your skin, who will?
