Every girl, young and old, loves a facial. Its not just good for a dry skin but also quite relaxing and therapeutic chatting for hours with the therapists. We recognise its value and examined how we can provide this service and add on certain non-invasive procedures together that can have a therapeutic effect on the skin.
Our therapist combine facial massage, cleansing, mask with vitamin C inotoporesis, radiofrequency skin tightening, IPL to enhance the skin as well as deliver a relaxing and enjoyable session.
Vit C inotoporesis – increases VitC penetration into the skin resulting in a brigthening effect. Its also great to reduce redness and marks post acne.
RF skin tightening treatments helps to give a tight and supple look.
IPL is great for giving radiance to the face.
So after the entire treatment – about 2hrs usually, you are relaxed, refreshed, skin is hydrated and medically improved with these treatments.
We want to let patients have a choice between a totally enjoyable session and a laser session (not as enjoyable definitely).
Deep Dermal Rejuvenation
The sun exposure, pollutants, poor diet and smoking can lead to premature aging. As we aged, the loss of collagen result in poor texture, coarse lines and age spots. At Alaxis, we provide a range of aesthetics services cater for individual’s skin and needs.
Laser Facial Rejuvenation
Laser rejuvenation greatly improves the tone and texture of your skin by stimulating collagen growth from within. It is also very effective in reducing pore size and for the treatment of black heads. You can choose laser treatments with no downtime or with mild redness lasting 3-4 days. We use long pulse Nd YAG and a patented VRM mode Q Switch Nd YAG laser for non-ablative laser rejuvenation with no downtime. These lasers are commonly used in top centers internationally and have been proven to work in major clinical trials. For a h2er treatment, we use laser carbon peel, these can lead to mild redness lasting 3-4 days. There would be more exfoliation and stimulation of collagen as it results in a semi-ablative rejuvenation. The results will be more impressive in a short time but you may have to bear with some redness and peeling for some days.
IPL Facial Rejuvenation
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) rejuvenation works similarly to laser rejuvenation but works on the more superficial layer of the skin. It helps the skin more radiance and reduction of superficial freckles. Diamond micro-dermabrasion is combined to enhance results.
Chemical Peels & Diamond Micro-dermabrasion
Chemical peels & Diamond Micro-dermabrasion helps remove old cells on the skin surface and accelerate regeneration of new cells.
Chemical peels are h2er treatments with a range of strength, e.g. mild redness and slight peeling 3-4 days later. Patient may expect peeling of the skin. These are superficial (Glycolic acid peels), medium (TCA peels) and deep peels (Phenol). These treatments penetrate into different depths of the skin.
The use of superficial peels helps reduce pigmentation and acne problems. These are done over a series of 3 peels with increasing strengths from very mild peeling to moderate peeling 4-5 days later. TCA or phenol peels are not h2ly advised,as these lead to longer downtime and there are better and safer methods of treatments available.
Diamond Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process with the use of a diamond tipped head, which makes contact with the skin and abrades against it. It gently exfoliates dead skin to aid superficial pigmentation, blemishes and helps brighten up your skin. It is a very mild method of removing dead cells on the face, facilitating better penetration of light (IPL, laser) to the skin.
Sonophoresis and Vitamin C Iontophoresis
Sonophoresis uses ultrasound waves to remove white heads effectively. Iontophoresis uses electric charges to increase skin absorption of vitamin C. It results in saturation of vitamin C on your face for about 2-3 days.
The benefits of vitamin C are whitening, anti-inflammatory, and increase of collagen production, increase skin resistant to photo-aging, increasing skin healing capability and anti-oxidant effect. This treatment will boost quicker recover after post chemical or laser peels.
