[Review] CALECIM® Professional Stem Cell Facial Treatment

 

In the recent years, skincare products formulated with stem cells have been getting really popular in Asia. It is claimed to be one of the “must have” latest skincare ingredients with anti-aging benefits.

What is stem cells?
Stem cells are the source of all cells. They have an ability to renew themselves and to become various types of cells, such as a skin cell.

How do stem cells keep our skin younger?
As we age, stem cells gradually lose their ability to repair damage, even from normal wear and tear. When applied topically, this ‘star’ ingredient is said to help renew our skin and protect the skin stem cells from damage.

CALECIM Professional

Recently, I was pleased to experience a month (4 sessions) of rejuvenating Stem Cells treatments at Knightsbridge Clinic, located at 277A South Bridge Road. The treatment uses Cord Lining Stem Cells named CALECIM® Professional to help renew my skin. The scientists at CellResearch Corporation discovered a significant new source of stem cells in the Umbilical Cord Lining Membrane – the outermost ‘skin’ of the mammalian umbilical cord. It is from intense research into Cord Lining Stem Cells that CALECIM® was developed.

Cord Lining Stem Cells are growth factors and when applied to the skin, they stimulate collagen production, improve elasticity and many more. To put it simple, they cause our own stem cells to go to work.

Review – Cambridge Medical Group OxyReplenish Treatment

 

Recently, I was invited to experience a rejuvenating Triple-Infusion Oxygen Therapy facial treatment, named OxyReplenish, at Cambridge Medical Group / Cambridge Therapeutics.

Is oxygen really good for our skin? Well, studies have shown that our skin will become dull and bluish in color if we lack of oxygen in our blood. Many celebrities including Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow enjoy oxygen facial. Madonna claimed that oxygen is her biggest indulgence to stay young. According to her facialist, Los Angeles-based Michelle Peck, Madonna gets an oxygen facial before every show when she’s on tour.

Review

The therapist began the treatment by cleaning my face with cleansing milk before proceeding with a second cleansing that contains whitening benefits. And followed with a gentle exfoliation using a super gentle non-abrasive scrub gel. Exfoliation is an important process as this will help remove the dead skin cells on the surface of skin and allow for a better penetration of the key products later. The scrub glides easily on my skin and I actually enjoyed the 2-minute gentle exfoliating massage. She massaged the scrub deeply into my skin in a circular motion and especially focused on congested pores around my nose area. It was really nice, love her tender touch.

Review – Angelface Oxygenating Skin Therapy

.

Do you know when skin is lack of oxygen, skin will appear dull-looking and loss of radiance? Just like body, skin needs oxygen too. Other than genetic, sun exposure, pollutions, diet, stress and unhealthy lifestyle habits, low oxygen level in the skin is also one of the factors for skin aging.

Do read on to find out on why oxygen is important to our skin.

Recently, I have received an invitation for a complimentary Oxygenating Skin Therapy Treatment from AngelFace. At first I was a little hesitating if I should take up the offer reason because I was of late extremely busy with my day work and I have been practically working OT for the past couple of weeks. In addition, there are several beauty events that are all happening at the same time. I’m also afraid that I would not be able to review this treatment soonest as there are piles of backlog posts to be completed. But fortunately, I have made the right choice of accepting it and it turned out to be one of the most rejuvenating skin treatments I’ve ever experienced so far!

Review – Body Wellness Oriental Revival Body Treatment

.

Two weeks ago, I was delighted to be one of the 7 beauty bloggers to be invited to experience a deluxe treatment at Body Wellness @ Winsland House 1. Thanks to TheSampleStore for extending this invitation to us.

As each beauty blogger received different body or face treatment, I was offered the Oriental Revival, a detoxifying body treatment using ginger and black pepper.

.

Oriental Revival Body Treatment

Upon reaching the Body Wellness at Winsland House 1, I received a warmly welcome from a group of consultants and therapists at the counter. A warm ginger tea was served soon after and I was given a set of questionnaire forms. While I was filling up the forms, I overheard a lady making a remark to her friend that she loves drinking the ginger tea whenever she’s here for a treatment. She will drink at least 2 cups each time she’s here. I took a quick peek at her and I could tell that she was really enjoying her every sip of the hot tea.

I was thinking : “Really? What so great about this ginger tea! Isn’t just an ordinary tea right!”. BUT after I have tasted it myself, I immediately fell in love with it too. OMG!!! It is so refreshing and tasty! The ginger taste is really strong and I instantly felt warm inside my body.

The ginger tea is brewed and replenished daily at their respective outlets. And I was told that Body Wellness @ Winsland House serves the best ginger tea among the 3 outlets. I love it so much and I have my second cup after the treatment. :-)

.

Sifang, the pretty Marketing Executive, toured me around before the treatment. I was very surprised that this Winsland House outlet is such a huge place. It has 38 to 39 rooms and it is so big that the corridor is formed in a big ‘U’ shaped.

.

Here’s a peek on one of the treatment room.

.

Instead of using numbers to identify each room, Body Wellness cleverly names each room with an unique name.

.

A potpourri bag is hanged on the doorknob if the room is taken. What a clever way!

.

Here’s the place for customers to blow their hair and put on their makeup.

.

What a huge waiting room. I reckon it can seat at least 25 people.

Here’s one of the hot bath room.

Here are the shower rooms.

I was told that this treatment can also help to treat my bloating, improve my digestion, relieve tight muscles and de-stress. It can also help to treat my cold feet and fingers as I often feel cold most of the time.

Review – Dermalife Spa Jet 2G Capsule, My Most Rejuvenating Spa Experience Ever!

.

.

A few weeks ago, I was delighted to receive an exclusive invitation to indulge myself in an unforgettable innovative spa experience hosted at Clariancy Aesthetic Clinic.

I couldn’t hold back my excitement and I was really looking forward to try out the luxurious Spa Capsule treatment only exclusively available at Clariancy Aesthetic Clinic.

.

.

Clariancy Aesthetic Clinic, started in June 2010, is located in the heart of the prestigious Raffles Hotel with 1,957sqft space area. This latest MediSpa in town has actually invested S$1.5 million in bringing in technology to better facilitate the needs and wants of its clients. Clariancy Aesthetic Clinic is a synergistic one-stop spa solution in aesthetic and spa services. It provides 3 exclusive top-notch capsules - Slimline POD O2 Spa Capsule, Alpha Spa Capsule and Spa Jet Capsule to cater to one’s every need.

.

.

Earlier in the day of my treatment, I was feeling very moody. I didn’t sleep well on the night before and I woke up in the middle of the night as I was troubled with some personal matters. I didn’t smile much and I was extremely quiet most of the day. Hence, I was so afraid I would not be able to enjoy the treatment in the evening, but to my surprise it turned out to be one of my most rejuvenating spa experience I ever have.

Upon arrival, I was warmly welcomed by one of the Directors and the PR Representative. The director suggested that I try out their popular Spa Jet Capsule and I delightfully accepted it.

.

A cosy waiting area that it feels so much like a home.

.

My first glance at their first machine. OMG!! This Slimline POD 02 Spa Capsule looks superior! It can get rid of cellulite, tightens the skin and contours the body, but what truly sets it apart from other slimming spa capsules, is that it is safe and effective in coping with weight management issues.

Only available at Clariancy Aesthetic Clinic, this weight loss spa capsule integrates multiple weight loss technologies, increasing metabolic stimulation to lose weight faster, and reducing weight set points to burning fat at a higher rate. With its related physiological benefits, it’s a one-stop permanent weight loss solution for many. I hope to try this one day…..hee hee……

.

So this is the Dermalife Spa Jet 2G Capsule I was going to indulge with. WOOHOO!!! I was so so excited!!

.

I was given a set of disposable panties and bra. So this is my bra!! Hahaha!! After changing to these, I proceeded to lay down on the Capsule bed.

.

Feeling a little bit nervous laying on this capsule at first. Okay relax! Cheers!
