This Mother’s Day, why don’t you give the woman who not only carried you around in her womb for nine-months, but also stood by your side while you threw your teenage hissy fits, held you in her arms when you broke your heart over some pimply youth and listened patiently while you complained yet again, about your horrible colleagues, spouse, in-laws, frenemy etc.
Instead of the standard boring luncheon, flowers or box of chocolate that let’s admit, she can easily get for herself, don’t you think that she would appreciate a gift that recognizes her femininity and individuality instead? After all, mum or not, she is still a woman and what woman doesn’t like a bit of spoiling?
For as long as I could remember, I thought that my mother had a square face. It never occurred to me that the reason her jawline was so boxy was that, with age, her collagen had begun to deplete, changing her facial structure, until my face started to get boxy — shudder.

When we think of lifting and firming, we often think of Botox, fillers and facelifts. But REvive Aesthetics has introduced a painless skin-transforming treatment that replaces Botox. This non-invasive and needle-free treatment works to naturally stimulate collagen production resulting in skin-tightening, lifting and radiance boosting.
BIOULTIMA is the next generation of face firming treatments with little to no downtime and instant results. Combining bio-current and radio frequency, REvive Aesthetics has created a fuss-free and very wallet friendly anti-ageing treatment, that is designed to help lift and tighten sagging facial features.
BioUltima 2The treatment starts with a double cleanse before moving onto the Aqua Peel, a deep-cleansing and rejuvenating procedure that cleanses pores, exfoliates dead skin cells, brightens dark spots, smooths fine lines, and hydrates the skin. A suction nozzle is used to remove dead skin cells and cleanse the surface of the skin. This is followed by an anti-ageing and soothing solution that rejuvenates heals, brightens and hydrates the skin. To activate the lymph nodes for detoxification, a hands-on lymphatic drainage massage is performed followed by a facial toning procedure using Bio Current.
Bio Current works by stimulating muscle re-education to shorten slackened muscles and lift the face. Bio Current when combined with radio frequency, results in further lifting, tightening and firming.
Radiofrequency causes elastin and collagen fibres to go through remodelling and thickening, effectively lifting the skin for immediate results. Additional synthesis of collagen and elastin also occurs as part of the healing process of the skin, induced by the radio frequency, so each time you undergo the treatment, more collagen is being produced.
The treatment is ended off with OLT (Omega Light Therapy), which is a relaxing light therapy that treats different skin types, to lighten pigmentation, evens out skin tone, and stimulate collagen production for smoother and younger-looking skin.

The BIOULTIMA treatment takes 60 minutes and provides instant lifting and firming of the skin, a softening of fine lines and wrinkles, minimized pores and re-defined facial features. Results can last around two weeks, although it varies between each individual and their lifestyle habits. The optimal number of sessions required would be six, with results lasting between two-weeks to a month. For the initial stage, the treatment is recommended to be done once every two weeks. For maintenance, once a month would suffice.
