With the lack of sleep and relentless stress on my skin, I needed to up my beauty game. While a conventional facial is great, marrying it with technology does wonders for the complexion. To revive my sallow complexion and lighten pigmentation, Beaute by Kew’s therapist May coupled Australian organic skin and body care brand Black Chicken Remedies with Dynamic Pulse Light.
The treatment started with a deep-cleanse using Black Chicken Remedies Cleanse My Face, a purifying oil cleanser which contains 14 medicinal oils that is deeply calming. Unlike cream or foaming cleansers which rely on chemicals to remove impurities from the skin, Cleanse My Face effortlessly removes makeup and dirt without disturbing the skin’s natural oil balance. Following that, the skin was exfoliated with Complexion Polish, a 100% natural powder facial exfoliant made from finely milled extracts. The product is free from water, additives, fillers, preservatives and plastic micro beads.
After extraction, May proceeded with Power Dynamic Pulse Light ($190) treatment to even out my skin tone, as well as reduce pigmentation and broken capillaries. What I like about DPL is that it’s painless with no downtime; I can continue on activities or return to work immediately after the session.
Using the same machine but with a different program, I also tried Power DPL hair removal. The quick, safe and effective laser treatment not only gets rid of hair for good, but also smooth and whiten underarm to achieve the same shade as surrounding skin. Until the 30th September2014, this service is on promotion at $98 (u.p $128 per session) for unlimited treatments for one area of concern (underarms/upper lips/ bikini lines). Shall post the before and after pictures after a couple of sessions.
RF iFine Advance Eye Treatment ($130) helped lift my droopy eyelids, lighten dark circles, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating blood circulation and collagen production with the latest radio frequency technology. The warm sensation is soothingly comfortable. Again, there is absolutely no pain or downtime.
Next, May slathered a generous amount of Love Your Face Serum and massaged it into my skin with a series of firm yet relaxing movements. The first thing that hit me was its heavenly aroma. This concentrated lightweight serum is made up of pure essential oils of Neroli, Palma Rosa, Rose Maroc, Ylang Ylang, and Sandalwood in a blend of Vitamin E, Apricot kernel, Jojoba, Evening Primrose, Rosehip and Argan oil. The anti-aging, skin boosting serum nourishes delicate skin and absorbs quickly, allowing skin to breath as it works. Great for daily hydration and soothing facial massages without clogging pores.
A thick layer of cool gold mask was applied, followed by a therapeutic shoulder and back massage. It went long enough for me to fall into a comfortable slumber.
