Prestige reviews: Six new anti-ageing treatments we like
What: Glow To Go IPL Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Where: EstheClinic, 72 Tras St
Duration: 20 minutes
Touted as a “zero pain” treatment that instantly brightens and firms the skin with no downtime, this skin rejuvenation treatment uses EstheClinic’s unique MacPeel technology, which claims to work twice as fast as traditional IPL (intense pulsed-light) systems.
Unlike traditional IPL that delivers a high level of energy in a single zap (often described like the sensation of rubber bands snapping against your skin), this treatment gradually raises the heat of skin to the optimum temperature for cellular rejuvenation, so that the experience is pain free.
High-intensity pulses of light are passed across the skin to induce controlled wounds deep within, prompting the skin to heal itself — creating new cells and promoting increased collagen production to smoothen and refine skin, shrink pores, and soften fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment also promises to reduce uneven pigmentation and give a more even-toned, radiant and smooth complexion.
During the treatment, no numbing cream is needed before the therapist uses a handheld device to “massage” the face and neck. True to its claims, there is hardly any pain, save for a warm and slightly tingly sensation throughout. The treatment ends with a relaxing facial, neck and shoulder massage.
The results are immediately visible, with skin appearing more radiant and dark spots diminished — perfect for time-strapped urbanites who want a quick perk-me-up. Benefits are said to last up to three weeks, and six to eight sessions are recommended for best results.
