Upgrade your facial treatments to these two powerful hybrid programmes that promise to lift, shape and brighten your complexion. By Lance Lim
IDS Hydro Therapeutics Treatment Plus
This much sought-after treatment is a hybrid of two treatments – IDS Hydro Therapeutics treatment and IDS RF Tightening programme DLT ( Dual Lift Tightening). A non- invasive treatment, it combines deep cleansing with skin lifting for optimum results.
How does it work? The 90- minute session starts with dermabrasion using the Hydrafacial equipment that exfoliates gently but thoroughly. This is followed by an ultrasonic cleansing, which loosens and clears away comedones that are rooted to the pores. Vitamin C essence is then applied using ultrasonic technology to drive it into the deeper layers of the skin for maximum absorption and efficacy. The first part of the treatment ends with the application of a facial mask to soothe and calm your skin before the radiofrequency treatment. Administered through a handheld device, high-frequency currents travel through skin tissues to stimulate collagen production, improve blood circulation, and nourish and revitalise skin cells.
Results and aftercare There is little to no downtime. Some may experience very slight flushing immediately after the treatment, but you can expect a general brightening of your skin after one session. Depending on skin condition, more than one session may be required for optimum results.
Reactionrf + Spectra XT or Dual Yellow
Reactionrf is a non- invasive procedure that utilises bipolar radio frequency combined with the advanced Spectra XT or Dual Yellow laser to rejuvenate, tighten and shape, while minimising the appearance of pores, fine lines, and freckles.
How does it work? Beginning with Reactionrf, the treatment uses bipolar radio frequency to penetrate deep into the skin to tighten skin and promote collagen production for a firmer and more lifted mien. To even out your skin tone and minimise pore size, the advanced Spectra XT or Dual Yellow, one of the latest laser technologies available, is used. This preferred multi-tasking laser generates heat to rejuvenate skin from deep within as it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and large pores with practically zero downtime, while stimulating collagen production. This popular laser treatment utilises a unique wavelength that does not damage blood vessels to remove freckles with minimal side effects.
Results and aftercare The entire treatment lasts approximately 100 minutes, and it has little to no downtime. The collagen production from both treatments continues for another three to five weeks, yielding a firmer and more radiant complexion over time.
