Ever since I crossed 30 years old, I’ve noticed that my skin doesn’t recover as fast as it used to. (The woes of Club 30 is real.) Get less than seven hours of sleep and I’ll notice obvious dark eye circles, deeper laugh lines and also lines at the corners of the mouth, and just skin that looks tired and haggard. Even good makeup won’t be able to hide fatigue that seems to come from within.
As a rare treat, I visited HAACH’s outlet at Orchard Central during lunch, to get a respite in the middle of a busy day. The cosy and elegantly-furnished facial studio offers a comprehensive suite of beauty services from including facials, massages, and waxing. But I was there for its latest offering, the Phytopeautics Everlasting Youth facial treatment.
At the heart of this treatment is the use of Alps Botanical stem cells from rare Swiss Apples, which is known for their anti-ageing and brightening properties. On top of the superior active ingredients used, the treatment also combines the use of advanced ultrasound technology to further stimulate the metabolism of skin cells.
How is the treatment like?
After a thorough cleansing, the treatment begins with a Diamond Peel that helps to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells so that the skin is prepared to absorb the active nutrients it is about to receive during the treatment. Extraction is done, and then a special infusion probe is used to supply ingredients that boosts collagen production deeply into the skin. Then, ultrasonic frequency is applied to encourage cellular turnover. Finally, a customised mask is applied to complete the pampering session.
If you, like me, prefer not to make small talk during facial, then you’d have enjoyed the treatment that I went through. The HAACH therapist will explain briefly to me the steps that are happening, but she didn’t once make any unnecessary small talk. It gave me the feeling that she was very focused in delivering a good job.
After the facial, while I was enjoying tea, the consultant showed me a face diagram where my therapist has drawn and pointed out the different problem areas that she observed during the treatment, so that I can pay attention to these areas in the future. I find this post-facial consultation quite useful.
Did I like the treatment?
The most obvious thing to me after the facial was that my skin felt extremely soft to touch. The therapist had also managed to unclog my pores thoroughly, so it looks smooth and clear.
The 90-minute Phytopeautics Everlasting Youth facial treatment is available at SGD288. HAACH is located at Level 11 M Hotel Singapore, #03-10/11 Orchard Central, and #04-11 Wheelock Place.
