The Finer Points

Cut­ting-edge treat­ments backed by med­i­cal re­search and at­ten­tive ser­vice makes medi-spa FREIA AES­THET­ICS a fit for dis­cern­ing in­di­vid­u­als

Singapore Tatler Wedding - - BEAUTY -

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.
