Facials aren’t new.
It used to be a luxury, likely costly and done only a few times a year for special occasions.
Facials are common now. In fact, facials should be (and encouraged to be) a prerequisite treat for the face.
The age of internet have provided us a wealth of information about skin care, and thus it is likely that your room is already filled with products – peels, masks, scrubs, toners — you name, you got it.
But don’t just go skipping out on seeking professional help. Even though you may not suffer from severe acne or other chronic conditions, your complexion will still benefit from the attention of a trained aesthetician.
So that was what I did recently.
I asked Josh what do I need to maintain a radiant complexion in between regular Q-Switch and PICO Laser sessions.
Is there something that I can do to pamper the skin that everyone happens to see at first sight?
Your face is the one area of your body that is almost always exposed to the elements including wind, sun and cold.
It does deserve the best care don’t you think?
It so happens that Clique had just welcomed Lilian Ong, a trained esthetician to the Clique familia.
Lilian’s expertise’s were honed from her years as a beautician for a global cosmetic and skincare brand.
For my case, and as fitting of an experienced aesthetician, Lilian checked my skin and promptly recommended the Clique Signature Medi-Facial.
The Signature Medi-Facial entails a full process of cleansing, exfoliating, extraction, laser, massage and of course, mask.
Step 1: Cleanse.
Step 2: Exfoliation
Step 3: Extraction – extraction of white and blackheads.
Step 4: Serum and massage – head, shoulders and decolletage.
Step 5: Laser (Q-Switch) by Aesthetic Physician. Check out how it works HERE.
Step 6: Mask.
Step 7: Serum, moisturizer, sunscreen.
I won’t bore you much with an overly detailed account of the facial as I’m certain that many of you are familiar with facial procedures.
But here are some facts that you should know:
What you should know about Clique Clinic’s Medi Facials:
1. How are Clique’s facial different from the others?
ANSWER : The main difference between a medi-facial and a classic facial is that it is typically performed within an aesthetic clinic and uses medical-grade products and tools.
Medi-facials are custom tailored to your skin’s needs and generally follow the same steps as a spa facial – cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, and moisturising, but on a more intense level. Medi-facials are also a safe and effective way of complementing other non-invasive treatments such as injectable dermal fillers or laser. It can help prepare your skin for the treatment and improve results post-treatment. It’s also a bonus when your aesthetic doctor can coordinate directly with your beauty therapist to create the ultimate game plan.
- 2. What are the pricing like?
ANSWER: Price ranges from RM 300 to RM 600. As facials are repetitive routines, we advise clients to go for our packages to enjoy a package rate.
- 3. Are the products used for the medi facials sold to customers (if customer would like to buy to use at home) ?
ANSWER: Yes. We have Clique prescriptive range of medical skin care, only be prescribed by medical doctors to our customers depending on skin needs.
- 4. Which one of the medi facial below is suitable for MEN?
ANSWER: We would recommend the Clique Facelift Luxury Facial.
It is an anti-ageing facial treatment that aims to boost cellular metabolism. Skin damage from shaving routine or skin damage can’t be fixed with the soap and water you use every day. Redness fades, but the underlying problem don’t. In fact, men’s coarser skin, larger pores and sun exposure would benefit a lot from our medi-facial.
Clique Facelift Luxury Facial is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime. You will get the immediate results in this 75-minute treatment!
Lilian said ” There are some things you just can’t DIY. You will never have the right products at home to get a professional effect“.
Take a steam machine as a prime example.
I assumed you’re not Mariah Carey and you don’t own a professional skin steamer in your house. Nor would you have light therapy machine.
Even professionals have a hard time performing extractions on themselves because you can’t see at the same angle on your own skin as you can on someone else’s.
Unless you’ve got big bucks and the proper degree, you can’t get that kind of treatment at home!
Why regular facials are necessary:
Need more motivation to make those regular facials appointments?
Here’s 5 easy reasons why facials are important!
1. Anti aging
Regular facial treatment helps to stimulate and increase the circulation in the skin.
In addition to that, it helps to relax the muscles and tone your face. It is believed that the anti-aging products you use would absorb into the skin better with regular facials.
2. A facial is a cosmetic treatment of the face that includes a series of pampering methods of applying creams, lotions, masks, peels, exfoliation, steam and massage.
This guarantees you a deep cleansing more effective than the type of cleansing you typically execute at home.
3. Get the ideal treatment.
A good cosmetic doctor will assess your skin care needs and provide you with the best treatment options for you to achieve the kind of skin you’ve been dreaming of.
“Your skin changes over time depending on age, weather and even hormones,” Lilian explains. “It is a good idea to have an expert who can address those changes – identify skin conditions and educate you on how to treat them.”
So even if you have great skin now, don’t think that it will last forever!
4. Psychologically: Lessen your stress
Almost all facial treatments help you relax especially if it combined with a massage. Experts believe that your body releases a hormone called endorphin that makes you happy when you are in your most relaxed state.
An effective facial will also leave your skin looking younger and healthier which in turn improve self esteem.
5. Give professional advise.
Last but not least, remember – “A knowledgeable, licensed esthetician will provide personalized skin recommendations and a regimen that will address your individual concerns.”
