Your Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Facial at Freia Aesthetics

img-1

We all love CHOICES but with over 20 facials on our extensive facial menu, selecting the right facial can be a challenge. 

Remember, our skin changes day to day, moment by moment and its “state” is influenced by many factors; including genetics, dietary, hormonal and even environmental. Similar to how we advocate “reading your skin” at home and treating our skin according to what it needs, we advocate the same when it comes to picking a facial. While a comprehensive skin assessment by the state of the art skin analysis machine, VISIA and/or with our skilled therapists is always your best bet, here’s a nifty little guide on our different facials which vary in intensity, purpose and intention; that could help you along the way.

Gentle

These ultra soothing and redness-reducing facials are perfect for the most fragile, intolerant, sensitive skins and could help manage medical conditions like rosacea, eczema, atopic dermatitis, etc. Facials in this category leverage on anti-inflammatory ingredients (like probiotics, Centella Asiatica etc) or machines (such as Healite LED light therapy; LDM Local Dynamic Massage or icy cold cryo sticks) to intensify the calming aspects and to provide instant relief. It takes time for us to stabilize intolerant skins; as such, we recommend a series of facials in this category to, over time; deeply soothe skin; strengthen one’s skin barrier and to re-balance skin’s microbiota. 

•⁠  Ultimate Skin Relief facial - incorporating products from Exquisite (a brand that is dedicated to restoring and improving skin’s integrity); this is a facial that will bring down irritable skins to a state of balance and calm. 

•⁠  ⁠⁠LDM Dewy Skin facial - combining the healing powers of plants in Future Cosmetics’ products and the alternating frequencies of a very unique ultrasound machine. Broken skin connective tissues are restored; inflammation reduced. 

•⁠  ⁠⁠Oxygen Cell Rewind treatment - ultra cool sprays of pure oxygen to push in exosome, stem cell proteins into our skin; bringing about instant relief and restoring radiance.

Medium

Facials in this category employ more intense machines like the Hydrafacial to deeply purify and decongest skin. This is best suited for those with congested, acne prone or active acne skin types. Focusing on deep cleansing; de-clogging of pores, restoring sebum balance; while preserving the skin’s microbiota and the acid mantle (the very fine, slightly acidic film on our skin's surface). Key ingredients used in these treatments would be glycolic, salicylic acids, botanical extracts like juniper,thyme, lemon peel, French green clay etc.

•⁠  ⁠Aqua-Boost facial - a thorough deep pore cleansing facial using the original Hydrafacial machine. Complete with manual extraction, sebum balancing masks and skin appropriate massage techniques.

•⁠  ⁠⁠LDM Clear Skin facial - we picked the hero acne-busting products in the Future collection and paired them with the anti-inflammatory properties of the LDM machine. With repeated session, skin is refined, sebaceous glands less active and balanced.

•⁠  ⁠⁠Future Afterglow facial - marrying the best of Future products in Beauty Drops No. 3, Phyto Mask No. 2, Heritage Mask and the pore cleansing powers of the Hydrafacial machine, this is an absolute skin treat that resolves problematic zits and leaves skin glowing.

•⁠  ⁠⁠The Ultimate Hydra O2 Experience - experience 2 amazing technologies in the Hydrafacial and Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion machines.

Facials in this category also employ more intense techniques like Gua-Sha; machines like Exilis Elite and mesotherapy to create a specific end-point / result. Best suited for skin that is “stable” (i.e. not sensitive or active acne) with particular needs in mind (eg. face sculpting, lifting, tightening, wrinkles-reducing, brightening etc). 

•⁠  Future Gua Sha facial - pay homage to the traditional art of gua-sha; which improves blood circulation; release tension and creates “space” within the otherwise stagnant areas of our facial muscles.

•⁠  ⁠⁠Glow Right treatment - chemical peels without the side effects. Leveraging on SkinBetter Science’s AlphaRet professional peel, expect a protocol that will leave skin baby smooth, soft and refined,

•⁠  ⁠⁠V-Shape Face - regular treatments using the Exilis Elite machine, combined with our Pietro Simone products to give a lifted, more defined mien.

•⁠  ⁠⁠Auteur Regenerative Therapy - the epitome of luxury; a “step up” in your routine. This treatment promises skin healing, glow and radiance - redefined. 

⁠⁠•⁠  ⁠⁠Needleless Rejuran - a great alternative to the popular Rejuran injectables, this is a pain-free facial that plumps up, hydrates and gives that signature glow that injectable rejuran promises.

•⁠  ⁠⁠Skin Reset Mesotherapy - this skin rejuvenating facial includes an express peel and the use of the Meso Infinity Thermal Electroporation Mesochip Mesotherapy Device to deliver either hyaluronic acid/collagen serum/24K gold indebenone into the skin while maximising our skin's absorption of skincare.

•⁠  ⁠⁠Notox facial - ease away fine appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this classic treatment is a great alternative to injectable botox.

Strong

This series of facials are dedicated to giving anyone an instant “step up” - think intensive glow, radiance, efficacy. Active ingredients like glycolic or phyto-retinols or various AHAs, BHAs, enzymes, vitamin C are used.

During the facial, one’s skin could turn “red” which is not a bad thing when the intention of the facial is to stimulate the skin. In fact, it’s a positive indication that the active ingredients are doing what they are meant to do - stimulate, regulate, balance and “step up”. Be it highly concentrated ingredients or stronger massage pressure techniques that are employed, we work on the upper layer of dermis where many blood vessels reside. Warmth from our facialists’ hands causes blood vessels to dilate , improving blood circulation; giving rise to the “redness” that some may not be comfortable with.

Our goal is to bring your skin to a beautiful red color during the facial and just before we are done, to tone it down to a muted, healthy, glowy pink hue.

Facials in this category also employ more intense techniques like traditional Gua-Sha; Cotton thread exfoliation, dry massage, together with machines like Exilis Elite and mesotherapy; to address targeted concerns. These treatments work best for skin that is already “stable” (i.e. no sensitivity or active acne) as they require us to push the boundaries just a bit more - in order to get results.   

•⁠  ⁠Ayuna facial - a signature favorite, the AYUNA facial is a must for those who want a full AYUNA experience and yet, see definitive results of glow, radiance and a healthy mien.

•⁠  ⁠⁠Aurum Radiance facial - comprising 5 different massage techniques, this is a 24K gold treatment that leaves many with impeccably glowing and youthful looking skin.
