Crystal Facial Treatments For Singapore

One aspect of ageing is that the skin becomes thinner and loses moisture more easily, resulting in dehydration. Collagen and elastin the skin are slowly depleted and wrinkles begin to appear on the face. To support the skin and stave off withering, low viscosity hyaluronic acid (HA) can be applied by Singapore’s ICARE Medical and Wellness Clinic in what’s called a crystal facial.

This treatment involves filling the surface of the skin with small deposits of hyaluronan. Over the course of seven days, the hyaluronan molecolues bind water molecules resulting in a hydrated and shiny appearance that gives the skin extra volume and moisture. Hyaluronic acid can be used to fill in lines and creases across the face, and is particularly effective for combating the deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth and between the eyebrows.

The procedure lifts and tightens the skin of the cheeks, smoothing out wrinkles and helping to remove lines and assisting the skin in regaining its former elasticity and maintaining extra volume.

For a glowing complexion, consider a crystal facial treatment with vital injector

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an extremely potent moisturiser. This compound is able to draw 1000 times its own weight in water from the surrounding environment. Its naturally reflective properties mean that it gives any skin it is deposited under a natural glow, as if tiny crystals were embedded (giving the procedure its name). IMG_8775 (1)

Vital Injector enhances the already impressive results by ensuring that HA is distributed smoothly and evenly.

FAQ

Q

Is the crystal facial only for people of a certain skin tone or colour?

A

No. Our clinic uses Juvederm Vobella, which in our experience has shown no increased risk of hypertrophic scarring or hyperpigmentation when used on patients of color. This filler is smooth, ensuring that the end result is not uneven. It also lacks a Tyndall effect, meaning the skin is not at risk of appearing bluish. The Tyndall effect refers to the appearance of bluish light resulting from light scattering by particles in a very fine suspension or colloid.

 Q

How long do the effects of the crystal facial last?

 A

Results can be seen instantaneously. The lifespan of results is tied to the biodegradation rate of the HA, generally between 6 and 12 months. This is impacted by factors such as your skin type, age and smoking status. To maintain the effects of the treatment, our clinic recommends that you pursue a follow-up treatment every nine months.

Q

How soon after treatment can I return to my normal social and professional life?

A

As soon as the day after!

 Q

How does hyaluronic filler differ from Botox Cosmetic?

A

Hyaluronic is a natural cosmetic filler that plumps the skin up to remove wrinkles. By contrast, Botox Cosmetic is a drug that that relaxes muscles that lie beneath wrinkles. We’ve heard positive reports from patients who have received both products in different areas of the face.
