H.S.A. Facial Treatment at D'skin Seletar Mall

H.S.A Facial Treatment Review at D'skin Seletar Mall Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog

Recently, I was invited to D'skin at Seletar Mall for a facial pampering session! 

Before the start of the facial, I was given a skin analysis to see how my skin condition was. :)

Unlike the other skin analysis I've done before, this is the most detailed and elaborated by far I've underwent. :)

The first test was to analyze the hydration level in my skin and it is doing pretty okay at around 77/100 but my therapist said it can be further improved still >_<

Sebum test shows that I have a rather oily skin at 61/100 :/ But it's quite strange as I feel dry at times nowadays >_<

Next is elasticity test and I scored a 44 for this test! Not very good for a 22 year old according to my therapist hahaha 

Do note that this elasticity test will have a slight suction sensation :)

As for my skin's pH level, it was a little too high at 7.6 which can cause skin sensitivity and hence I was advised that I would have to choose the products I use very carefully. 

I was originally invited to review their new Stem Cell facial treatment but after the skin analysis, I was recommended to their H.S.A. facial to boost my skin's hydration level instead of the stem cell one as the stem cell facial is too rich for my skin type. Really sweet of them :)

Pathway to the treatment rooms :)

This is how the treatment room looks like! I major love their blanket and they also specially placed a pillow at the end of the bed to lift your legs up for a more comfortable experience :)

Now time for the H.S.A facial :)

Step 1: Double Cleansing

I've noticed that the cleanser that they use has a slight herbal scent to it. In addition, my therapist cleansed my face, neck and chest area very gently which I really like haha

Step 2: Warm Steam with Facial Scrub

Warm steam was applied to my face and concurrently, my therapist also did a facial scrub so as to open up the pores and remove all the impurities from within. :) This step helps in making extraction easier and less painful as well.

Step 3: Extraction

Ivy, the consultant at the Seletar Mall outlet, personally did the extraction for me as my congestion is more tricky around my chin area and oh my god, she is extremely skillful in extraction! The way she did it was in very quick and precise movements along with the right amount of pressure. 

How do I tell if a therapist is truly skilful? My chin's congestion will tell me about it. 

Here's the way she cleared up my chin's congestion:
First, she pricked open the skin in just two moves. Then she squeezed ONLY ONE TIME and a big green pus deep in my headless pimple is out of its refuge straightaway. 

How awesome is that man!! Not to mention, the amount of pressure she used to squeeze is out wasn't a lot too as compared many others I've encountered before. Some choose not to touch my chin area at all cuz they are not up for the challenge maybe? O.O

Anyway, after extraction, she showed me how my skin looked and it was pretty red and inflamed cuz there was a lot of impurities going on in my skin at that point of time  due to my period visiting me. She also pointed out that my bottom cheek areas are very dry and has developed some blackheads around there and because of the dryness, she wasn't able to squeeze out all the blackheads during that session or my skin would react badly afterwards. 

That's a super red alert there man cuz I have never had blackheads and dryness around my cheeks area before, only around the nose! I guess I have to apply more mask for hydration from now on. ><

Step 4: Brows Trimming

I requested for my usual brow look which is straight with slight arch. :)

Step 5: Electric wave treatment for anti-inflammation and anti-bacteria

I'm really sorry but I actually don't know the exact name of this machine but according to my therapist (not Ivy anymore, Ivy stepped in only in the extraction step) it has something to do with electric waves. It's pretty interesting to see how the device is capable of having anti-inflammation and anti-bacteria functionalities just from electric waves alone. My therapist concentrated the device more around my chin and bottom cheek area as they were more inflamed as compared to the other areas. You will feel a slight zapping sensation during this step but that's pretty okay to me.

Step 6: Application of hydrating serum

Next, my therapist applied the hydrating serum layer by layer around 5 times on each side of my face and slowly massaged it in with the device you can see in the picture simultaneously. The device gives out ultrasonic and high-voltage pulses that helps to penetrate the serum into the deeper skin layers and at the same time it helps to lift the skin as well :) Awesome!!

Step 7: Face and Shoulder Massage

An essential oil was used during the massage was very on point around my eyes area which I enjoyed it very well. I just wished that they included a good massage around my jaw as well and everything would have been perfect haha.

Step 8: Base Mask + Hydration Mask

Base mask plus a netting for easy removal of the hydration mask at the later part :)

The moment the therapist applied the hydration mask, I immediately detected a green tea scent haha. True enough, the mask was green hahaha. I just love green tea, a lot. Even my daily cleanser is also made from organic green tea from the brand called O'Sulloc which is very famous in Korea for their green tea :) It just helps to relax myself and I love the scent a lot! <3  While the mask was on for about 20 minutes, my therapist carried on with a shoulder massage in long strokes to further relax me. 

Step 9: Wrap up

For the last step, toner and moisturiser were applied onto my face along with the help of a super cool feeling device (I'm sorry but I don't know the name of the device.) to hydrate and soothe my skin :) An eye serum was applied as well in circular motions :)

Overall, the H.S.A. facial was a very soothing and gentle facial without any harsh peelings or scrubbing and etc. at all. The whole process took about two hours. They gave me anti-bacteria solution to apply around my chin are after the facial. Great service indeed :) My nose area's pores are squeaky cleaned from blackheads and I'm so happy that I was able to get all my face's congestion which was pretty bad due to the haze previously. :)

That's it to this review! :D
