{SP} #NOFILTERSKIN

January 31, 2015
Paid a visit to GLOMAX Aesthetics! I love coming here for a facial fix! I have tried a number of their award winning facial treatments, which you can read here and here; and I have no complaints, nada! 

I hate to admit it, but I had been neglecting my skin cause of my busy schedule. My skin was feeling dehydrated due to the hours I spend on the plane and my skin was looking dull due to my odd sleeping patterns. So, for this visit I decided to try the HYDRAULIC LAYERING REJUVENATE OXYGEN TREATMENT ! I was so excited to try out this Hollywood favourite treatment, cause of it's list of benefits:
  1. Dramatically enhances the skin's overall hydration.
  2. Rejuvenate uneven skin tone, making it look brighter and luminous.
  3. Soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  4. Restores, binds and attracts moisture.
  5. Plumps up the skin and helps the skin look firmer.
  6. Creates clarity in skin and continuous radiance.
The thing about this treatment is, it comes with no fuss and frills; it is a quick treat for your skin! Perfect if you want to head back to work or have a meet up, without the splotches and the worries. Hehe! This is how the treatment works:  

  • The specialist first cleansed and exfoliated my face thoroughly.
  • Then the session started off with microdermabrasion, the machine gently unclogs the pores to enable maximum ingredient penetration. It felt as if a plunger was sucking out all the impurities in my pores. I was happy to see the was-white cotton, it meant my pores were free of dirt and excess oil.
  • Next step was sonic cleansing, the machine removes dead skin cells and smoothes the skin, resulting in a glowy, even skin tone. In order to see the full effect of the treatment, it is important that the skin is decongested.
  • The following step was extraction. Just a note, this was an add-on, it doesn't come with the treatment, but you can request to combine this with another treatment. Although I hate this step, I personally find it the most important part of any facial! That's cause I can't seem to get rid of all my blackheads and whiteheads on my own. Boo!
  • After that, it was time to start the treatment with O2! The machine introduces oxygen directly into the skin's pores; the oxygen is treated with a cocktail serum in which the skin absorbs for maximum dispersion of nutrients. The cocktail is made up of different ingredients with different properties:
    • Hyaluronic Acid - Delivers essential vitamins and antioxidants to the skin 
    • Aloe Vera - Calms and moisturises.
    • Green Tea - Helps neutralise free radicals.
    • Vitamin A - Essential for healthy cell growth and an antioxidant.
    • Vitamin C - Essential for collagen synthesis and an antioxidant.
    • Vitamin E - Provides a barrier against loss of hydration and an antioxidant.
  • The specialist gently delivered the oxygen and cocktail serum into my skin, improving my skin's hydration levels and targeting my expression lines/wrinkles. She started with the right side off my face to show me the before and after effect. I instantly saw a smoother appearance for the fine lines under my eyes, better volume and increased firmness of my cheeks! Wowza!
  • The specialist then used something that felt like metal balls to lightly massage the cocktail serum into my skin. I felt so cool and calm with the combination of the oxygen, serum and massage that I practically dosed off. 
  • The facial ended with light cleansing, dabs of toning, some moisturising and a layer of UV protection. 

I left the place with my skin feeling hydrated and happy! I was all ready to go out and about around town!


Here are some bare-skin selfies I took later in the evening! My skin is looking and feeling glowy, radiant and fresh; and it only took forty-five minutes to give my skin the hydration boost it needed! 

I think this has become my favourite treatment, I love the results! And since I believe good things must be shared, here's an offer for you readers who want to try this Hydraulic Layering Rejuvenate Oxygen Treatment!
