If you have been wondering how many skin problems can be solved by facial treatments, it will be good for you to consider some of the various kinds of facials and what each entail. This article touches on some of the popular facial treatments in Singapore.

Classic Facial

This treatment normally includes steaming of the face, exfoliation, extractions, massaging, and maybe some masks. It also comes with the use of serums and moisturizers. It is best for the general upkeep of the skin to make it look good as it leaves you with glowing skin and unclog pores. It is also recommended for targeted skin problems.

Lymphatic Massage Facial

It is also called lymphatic drainage. It reduces puffiness and the built-up tension from the neck to the face. What they do is massage certain areas of the neck to relieve tension and blockage. The result is that it increases circulation, removes toxins, and water retention.

Microcurrent Facial

This is a term for any facial that involves the use of an electric device. But relax; this procedure is safe and painless. Two of such procedures are Galvanic facial, and High Frequency.

Galvanic Facial

Galvanic current is used here to stimulate the face. It is a highly effective facelift, and it is also non-surgical. The current tones the facial muscles and repositions them, giving the face a better look. It is a perfect therapy for wrinkles, skin tightening, and collagen growth.

High-Frequency Facial

This treatment is also known as radiofrequency in some parts of the world. Controlled electric current is used to stimulate deep layers of the skin. For one thing, it kills all bacteria and treats any acne found on the face. It remains one of the best facials for the treatment of acne.

Microdermabrasion Facial

This is a minimally invasive facial treatment where a device known as the diamond tip is used to brush off the upper layer of the skin. It is like the sandpaper of the face, but it is painless. It is best for the removal of dead skin cells; highly recommended for those trying to battle the skin effect of aging.

LED Light Therapy

Here, different wavelengths of light is used to treat different skin conditions. It has different colors that cause different therapeutic reactions on the skin. For instance, blue light therapy helps the skin prevent inflammation; while the red light helps the skin heals faster. It is suitable for all kinds of skin types.

Acupuncture Facial

In acupuncture, tiny needles are placed on several parts of the face. These controlled injuries stimulate the growth of collagen. It is good for the treatment of wrinkles, scars, and skin tightening.

Anti-Aging Facial

This is a general term for any procedure that targets specific age-related skin issues like wrinkles, lines, sagging skins, sun damage, textured skin, and dark circles. It might be just one procedure or a combination of procedures at intervals.
