Review of the top 5 lunchtime treatments in Singapore
Many people have negative perceptions of plastic surgery and aesthetic treatments. While the stigmas attached to such procedures have disappeared, many people are turned off by the long downtime usually required by these procedures. Lunchtime treatments are ideal for those who have something to attend to immediately after as there is no extraction done in any of these procedures. Some treatments include a double cleanse and an exfoliation with natural enzymes. This is then followed by the shining on an LED light that will address your skin’s issues, be it repair or collagen stimulation. A gel mask, toner and moisture protector then follows to protect your skin from the weather and its harmful effects. The best part is that while your mask is setting, you’re given a head and shoulder massage. Here is a short review of the five latest, non-invasive beauty treatments available in Singapore that let you get back to the office in no time.
1. VShape face therapy
This procedure helps you get the highly desired V-shaped jawline that some of us were not born with. In fact, your favourite Korean pop star probably wasn’t born with his either. This treatment combines ultrasound and radio frequency technology to help you achieve your desired results with no needles or surgery involved. The technology breaks down and removes fat while the radio frequency energy strengthens the collagen fibers to tighten and contour the skin. Each session takes approximately 60 minutes, costs $500 but shows immediate results.
2. Philips Zoom Whitening
This treatment is used to whiten and brighten teeth. Many people don’t understand the effect a sparkling smile has until they try the procedure for themselves. With this procedure, you’ll get an instant ego lift in under an hour. The treatment is done using a combination of active hydrogen peroxide and whitening lamps to penetrate the surface of the tooth, leaving the teeth up to 8 shades lighter. Each session can take up to an hour and a half with an immediate whitening effect. The strength of each effect depends on the original condition of the individual’s teeth. The cost of each treatment varies but prices usually start at $963 per session.
3. Clear Brilliant
This treatment aims to give you younger skin without the side effects of typical laser resurfacing procedures. While such procedures are known for their ability to improve skin texture and appearance dramatically, sadly, they are also known for being incredibly inconvenient as they require a longer downtime than other lunchtime treatments. The treatment uses gentle laser technology to refresh the skin by creating tiny little treatment zones that allow healthy skin to surface. The treatment provides immediate and progressive results that can last for months on end, depending on how great your skincare routine is. A session can be done in under 20 minutes and the cost is between $300 and $400.
4. High definition Vaser Liposuction
This procedure is there to help tone the bits you can’t seem to get rid of no matter how much you exercise. This treatment is the answer to those looking to get a toned physique but either hate going to the gym or are too lazy. This is a unique form of liposuction that targets various muscle groups to emphasize their shape. The instrument used for the treatment is used to perform deep, superficial and precise liposuction around the targeted muscle groups. These areas are usually the abdomen, lower back, glutes and chest. However, this treatment is not for those with excessive body fat as this is not a weight loss technique. Each session costs approximately $7500, takes between 2 and 3 hours to be done, and results can be seen either immediately or within a week, depending on the individual. Patients who had just undergone the treatment should wait a month before beginning to exercise again.
