Top 4 dermatologist-approved treatments to get your body beach-ready
From bacne to buttne (believe it or not, they do exist), we give you the low-down on how you can get your body beach-ready, whether it’s chillin’ by our local beaches in Sentosa, or if your heading to Europe to soak in the Mediterranean sunshine.
1. Back Peels
Using alpha beta hydroxy acids, stubborn dead cells are sloughed off, reducing bumpiness of the back and smoothening out superficial unevenness of the skin. Do expect mild flaking of the skin for a few days post-treatment, but above all, expect the skin of your back to be smoother and brighter in just a couple of sessions.
2. Hair Removal
Swimsuits and body hair never quite go hand in hand. This hairy situation can be easily rectified with laser hair removal treatments. But we don’t stop there. We complete your body transformation by restoring your underlying skin with a series of gentle yet restorative, pigment lightening, skin brightening laser therapies in tandem with dead cell-exfoliating peels to ensure that your skin is not only fuzz-free but gorgeously presented.
3. Clear blue body treatment
Try this 5-step treatment for clarifying your skin, which is excellent for those who want to keep their complexions clear and problem free. Pineapple Enzyme Scrub helps to dissolve away dirt & debris while your skin is treated to a basic Deep Sonic Cleanse… but we don’t stop here. I-Clear Blue light therapy with its anti-bacterial and pore-shrinking effects clarifies skin. The facial continues with apple based enzyme peel with its gentle fruit acids to purge pores of gunk before ending with an Acne Collagen Mask to soothe, calm the now purified skin.
For a little extra, we recommend Cellu-Melt, which uses a proprietary blend of actives in a skin plumping hyaluronic acid base, delivered using a specialized ‘acu-point’ technique. The treatment targets uneven texture and weakened dermal supports by boosting collagen and elastin production, and is excellent for improving skin tone and texture as well as smoothening out the dreaded ‘orange peel’ effect of cellulite-afflicted legs. Complete with a body masque specially formulated to restore skin hydration, softness and suppleness, this 60-minute treatment is your go-to if you want to improve the appearance of cellulite or stretch marks, short of divine intervention. Cellu-Melt is best paired with Exilis Body Magic for an overall skin tightening, cellulite-busting effect.
