Looking for a facial treatment that will give you glowing and radiant skin? Our Editor tries a new treatment at HAACH and loves the results!
Finding a good facial therapist is akin to finding the perfect life partner. The search is hard, and for some, and infinite one. Growing up, I was regularly exposed to facial treatments (thanks Mummy!). While I generally have not-so-problematic skin, I hated going for those monthly sessions because the extractions always hurt so bad. So somewhere in my mid-twenties, I stopped going for facials altogether and just opted for regular sheet masks (they work like magic!) instead to give my face that extra je ne sais quoi.
For that reason, I thought I would be eternally happy with my favourite Snail & White Peony sheet mask from Guardian. But, because my wedding is just less than two months away, I knew that I needed a little extra TLC so that my mien will exude that radiant glow every bride desires. I’m just going to say it straight up. I had a facial treatment done at HAACH and I’ll never be the same. I’m not even exaggerating when I say that what I experienced was relaxing, life-changing, painless, walk-towards-the-light kind of amazing. The Phytopeutics Everlasting Youth Treatment changed my face, for the better.
As soon as I arrived, I was lead to the treatment room. I was really nervous and memories of yore flashed back to the horrified 18-year-old me, red and sore post-facial. I could have sworn the therapist, Queenie saw those flashes too and assured me that this was no ordinary facial. She promised that the next 75 minutes would be as painless and rejuvenating as can be and even mentioned that there’ll even be a soothing head and shoulder massage at the end. Wait a minute, did she just say massage?
So what is this miracle Phytopeutics Everlasting Youth Treatment about? It’s essentially a facial treatment that uses advanced ultrasound technology married with HAACH’s unique concoction of Alps Botanical stem cells from rare Swiss Apples. Yes – apples!
As I lay down on the soft cushioned table, Queenie draped me with soft blankets and dimmed the lights. The music was lightly playing in the background and the ambience for total relaxation was perfect. The treatment started with a Diamond Peel that works in exfoliating the top skin layer to rid away dead skin cells (can’t imagine the gross amount that’s built up on my face – sorry Queenie!) and acts as a prepping step for the skin to receive nutrients. After that, a special infusion probe that’s packed with ingredients that boost collagen production are infused deep into the inner dermis layers of the face. Apparently, the application of ultrasonic frequency aids in increasing cellular turnover, smoothens our fine lines and wrinkles, lighten dark eye circles and old-age spots; leaving skin looking fresh.
By this time I was in and out of slumber because the Queenie was really gentle and good with her hands. For the last step, to seal in all the goodness, I was given a customised treatment mask. After a few minutes of letting all the magic seep into my face Queenie gave me that shoulder and head massage which she promised and man, was it good! At the end, she held up a mirror, and I was surprised at there was a radiant glow. My skin felt smooth to the touch and looked really luminous. My face felt really plump and hydrated and I even stepped out to face the world make-up free!
Here are some benefits of the Phytopeutics Everlasting Youth Treatment:
- Extend protection for skin cells under UV exposure
- Boost the production of skin steam cells by protecting skin from stress and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles
- Contains unique anti-wrinkle peptide which compensated the defects of botox
- Instant Aqua firming effect to enable you to rediscover luminous natural beauty of your skin
- Gently exfoliate dull, congested skin and promotes skin renewal.
- Boost collagen production and plump up facial lines, as well as restore elasticity and hydration to unhealthy skin
Overall I was very impressed with the immediate results that I saw from the treatment and let’s just say that I’m gonna have HAACH on speed dial now. Let me leave you with a picture of me sans make-up (I rarely ever take a #nomakeup photo so this is your lucky day!), a day after the facial. “Goodbye sallow and dull skin”, says the most radiant bride ever!
