During the treatment, a device called a bubble pen is used to cleanse the skin by removing impurities and traces of pollution – dust, grime and dirt – which make the skin look dull. According to Ms. Koh, the bubble pen delivers a combination of active oxygen and soothing cleanser to penetrate the skin, removing oil and debris from the pores.
The facial also involves the application of aqua alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and beta hydroxy acid (BHA), which keep the skin more hydrated compared to chemical exfoliating acids, Ms Koh explained. Another benefit of using aqua AHA and BHA is that they help break down oil buildup in pores and reduce the appearance of large pores, she added.
Next comes a step known as nano-oxygen misting. This involves spraying highly concentrated oxygen onto the epidermal layer (outermost layer of skin) to promote collagen growth, Ms Koh said. “Thanks to its antioxidant capacity, nano oxygen mist stimulates metabolism and cell renewal, and strengthens the skin’s defenses by repairing the skin barrier. It also has a softening effect on the skin.
To top it off, guests receive a relaxing serum facial massage that uses lymphatic drainage techniques. Depending on individual skin concerns, clients have a choice of three types of serum – brightening, revitalizing or brightening – to accompany their massage.
“Like a good body massage, a well-executed facial massage has benefits. When performed by a trained therapist, regular facial massages can help reduce tension, stimulate circulation and reduce facial puffiness while removing dead skin cells that can make skin look dull,” Ms. Koh said.
According to Ms. Koh, clearer, more luminous skin can be seen “almost immediately” after the treatment session*. She recommends doing regular monthly sessions to maintain a glowing complexion.
