FACE OFF

THE AQUA PEEL THER­APY AT THOMAS D’ESTHETIQUE CLEANSES, EXFOLIATES AND HY­DRATES THE SKIN – MI­NUS THE HAS­SLES.

Men's Health (Singapore) - - GUY WISDOM -

We don’t al­ways un­der­stand how a fa­cial works. And most of what the ther­a­pist tells us even­tu­ally comes to nought mid­way through the mas­sage. But if you have had a fa­cial be­fore, you would know that the most in­tense part would be the “ex­trac­tion”. This is when pores are pressed, probed and squeezed to ex­pel the gunk trapped be­neath your skin. While this clears up your com­plex­ion, it’s also when one ex­pe­ri­ences the most dis­com­fort.

TRIPLE AC­TION

At Thomas D’Esthetique, a men’s only aes­thet­ics and well­ness cen­tre, the sig­na­ture Aqua Peel treat­ment does away with the pain but re­tains sim­i­lar, if not bet­ter, re­sults.

The three-step ther­apy be­gins with the Al­pha Hy­droxy Acid (AHA) so­lu­tion that is said to tar­get wrin­kles and slow down the signs of age­ing, while firm­ing up and ton­ing the skin. The so­lu­tion is ap­plied on the der­mis by way of a pen-shaped in­stru­ment. The tip of the de­vice com­prises three holes. As it pul­sates to mas­sage the skin and ap­ply the AHA so­lu­tion, the mid­dle hole siphons away the im­pu­ri­ties from the skin.

The treat­ment ends with a mois­turiser (dis­pensed from the third out­let) that’s mas­saged onto the face, which is fol­lowed by a fa­cial mask. The cold, muddy cover pro­vides a re­fresh­ing feel and re­ju­ve­nates the skin at the same time. More im­por­tantly, the en­tire treat­ment pro­vides cleans­ing, ex­fo­li­a­tion, ex­trac­tion, hy­dra­tion and an­tiox­i­dants, with­out the need for any in­tense “bat­ter­ing” or squeez­ing of your skin.

AFTER­GLOW

The Aqua Peel is suit­able for all skin types, whether dry, oily or acne-prone. And it re­quires a first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence for its ef­fi­cacy to be be­lieved.

While the ther­apy may leave your face slightly red and tight, the re­sults in­clude an ob­vi­ous nat­u­ral glow on the skin. Bet­ter still, the sparkle lasts be­yond the treat­ment, and the face feels fresher and re­ju­ve­nated with each pass­ing day.
