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.
