Underrated aesthetic treatments you should know about now!
The Retreat Clinic’s signature treatments combine the best and safest technologies to help build body confidence more effectively in a shorter amount of time.While we are known for our body sculpting and fat reduction treatments, there are many other body and facial treatments which we feel are totally underrated but gives amazing results!
Dry, rough-textured and dull skin occurs due to different reasons. It could be of skin-type, age factor, and could even be caused by external conditions such as overexposure to the sun. Aside than your usual skincare routine, extra care beyond just topical application can definitely help to reinstate your skin moisture effectively.
Hydrabooster is a FDA-approved injectable that is used to restore hydration deep into your skin using the water-loving substance Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is actually the substance that is naturally produced by our body, but in lesser amounts as we age. Restoration of HA in your skin will boost its biological process of hydration and tissue restructuring. This will increase collagen production, reduce fine lines, and improve elastin fibre under the skin for more elastic, firm, smooth, and radiant skin.
No longer happy with those body arts? Talk to our physician to plan well about your tattoo removal, especially if you have a date to chase, as it takes a number of sessions to ensure safety and effectiveness.
With proper equipment and handling by an experienced and certified physician, laser is one alternative proven effective to erase off tattoos. Our physician will advise you with a comprehensive treatment follow-up plan, along with proper before and after care to achieve the best results. Laser treatment fades the pigment of your tattoo by stages, and fading is observable by about 30% after each session.
Fire & Ice Facial
This fancy-named facial treatment might just be what you need for brighter and glowing skin! And don’t worry, it is non-invasive with no needles involved. As we age, our body declines in its ability to shed dead skin. The dead skin then accumulates on the skin surface, making your skin appear dull.
The Fire facial has mild peeling properties to help resurface, revealing fresh and brighter skin beneath, with zero-downtime! The skin will then be soothed with a calming Ice mask, leaving the skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. To optimise and maintain your brightened and radiant skin, you may be advised to combine with selected post-treatment skin products where needed and suitable.
And not to forget the traditional aesthetic practices! Gua Sha is a treatment to improve blood circulation and is actually a pretty good health invention by the ancient Chinese that is still relevant in today’s health world, adapted widely in beauty industry!
The treated area is rubbed with long strokes with a Gua Sha tool to stimulate microcirculation, which promotes blood circulation, releases muscular tension and gives an instant facelift while depuffing the eyes. Though seems simple, Gua Sha needs to be done only by a trained physician to avoid risks and to achieve maximum effectiveness. It’s therapeutic and an ideal self-care for some ‘me time’!
Sublime for Face and Neck
Sublime is a painless treatment, using the technology of infrared and bipolar radio-frequency to awaken and stimulate collagen production in your skin. Collagen is an important skin component that is responsible for skin structure and elasticity, it essentially plays a huge role in maintaining a youthful appearance.
With sublime, skin qualities can easily be improved – better texture, defined facial contour, lifted and tightened skin, and decrease of lines and wrinkles. Definitely a good non-invasive option to reduce signs of aging.
Sound scary, but it’s just science. Vampire Lift, or its medical term Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment that uses our body’s own natural healing power to benefit ourselves.
PRP procedure starts with a small amount of blood taken from the patient, which is then put into a centrifuge where the blood will be spun to create separation of the red blood cells from the platelet plasma. The platelet plasma then will be injected into the patient’s skin in the areas to be treated. This will stimulate the cells that are involved in building skin-structure, such as those responsible for collagen and fat production. When these cells are stimulated, collagen production will increase hence naturally improving skin elasticity and filling in lines, improving facial contours and overall skin-aging signs.
Every individual and body is different, and we strongly recommend you to consult a certified aesthetic physician to evaluate your body and skin condition in order to identify the best treatment solution.
