The Finer Points
Cutting-edge treatments backed by medical research and attentive service makes medi-spa FREIA AESTHETICS a fit for discerning individuals
Fresh blooms greet you, a delicate scent wafts through the air and a carefully curated audio soundtrack lulls you into a state of calm. Before long, a menu of various drinks concocted to improve wellness is presented. It is an image far from the often cold, stark-white and minimalist appearance of most medi-spas, but at Freia Aesthetics, such detail, warmth and a personal touch goes into every aspect of your experience.
The minutiae doesn’t stop at the reception there, however. The medi-aesthetics spa offers face, hair and body treatments that harness cutting-edge medical innovation and technology. In fact, treatments undergo stringent testing and refinements by spa director Serene Seah and are endorsed by medical director Dr Harold Ma before they make it to the treatment menu. Only advanced skincare backed by medical science, such as Calecim, said to be the gold standard in stem cell extract growth factors, and the SkinCeuticals range born of decades of skin cancer research, are used in the treatments. While signature treatments such as the Notox and CellRewind facials are popular, Freia Aesthetics constantly pushes the boundaries of innovation to expand its repertoire of treatments. New additions include the Ocean Breeze Facial that channels the healing powers of the ocean into a treatment that hydrates the skin, boosts cell renewal and leaves skin supple, as well as the Luminosity Facial, a nine-step treatment for radiant skin. It’s no wonder the medi-spa has a loyal clientele of both men and women.
Not merely focused on one particular market segment or age group, Freia Aesthetics helps women at every stage of their lives to look their best, journeying with clients through their changing skin needs, from teenager to pre-wedding, pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, post-pregnancy and menopause.
For those wanting to turn back time, the X-Lift tightens skin, reduces fine lines and contours the face using a state-of-the-art machine as well as a massage by the therapist for better circulation in the skin. My therapist checked that I was comfortable with the temperature of the heat probe as she navigated it over my face. A mask and massage end the facial.” SHABNAM ARASHAN
ATTAIN PEACE OF MIND
As wedding preparations intensify, it is not surprising for couples to feel stressed and even be sleep deprived. A soothing massage or a restorative couples’ bath with salts, essential oils and flower petals will relax the body and mind so both of you will leave the spa feeling relaxed enough to enjoy quality, deep sleep ahead of the big day.
PUT YOUR BEST BODY FORWARD
Together with facials and appointments to the aesthetics doctor, it makes sense to include spa treatments in your pre-wedding beauty regimen to get a head-to-toe glow. Scrubs and wraps detox and exfoliate the skin while massages stimulate circulation to drain toxins and reduce puffiness. The result—smooth, even toned and infinitely touchable skin that’s photo-ready with any outfit, from backless bridal gowns to peekaboo resort wear for your honeymoon.
YOU’LL GET TO SPEND QUALITY TIME ALONE
Last but not least, the opportunity to focus on each other might just be the most important benefit of a spa treatment, especially since it can be tough to set aside couple-only time before your wedding. But for these few precious hours at the spa, it will be just the two of you enjoying some R&R without distraction from your mobile phones. Many luxury spas also come with facilities such as Jacuzzi pools or tea sessions which are perfect settings for a quality conversation with your other half so you can continue to feel deeply connected to each other.
