As a new mom in my early 30s, I have been struggling with my skin, hair and body over the past year or so. Yes, pregnancy and birthing a child will do that to you plus let’s not forget that age is a big factor too. Having said that, please let me clarify that I am a big cheerleader for self-love, and not at all a believer in society’s set standards for looks and beauty because chasing that, especially in Asia, will drive you bonkers if you’re anything like me.
However, I also believe that we must take care of ourselves and take the leap to do the right thing for our skin, health and overall well-being time and again.
As such, when my super generous editor extended me the chance to try EHA Skincare’s Diamond Polar Skin Tightening Treatment, I knew I had to. I have tried EHA in the past so I needed no convincing about their modern amenities, cleanliness and hygiene and well-trained beauty experts. However, this was probably my first time trying a skin tightening treatment, so I was excited and, to be honest, a bit nervous too.
First, a bit about the brand. EHA Skincare is a homegrown skincare brand that carries its own range of skin care products made both in Japan and France. The products are made specifically for Singapore’s humid climate and are all lightweight and comfortable to use. Now, let’s understand what Diamond Polar is and how the treatment works.
Got Saggy Skin? This Is The Treatment For You, No Matter How Young or Old You Are
Before I explain the process, let me first clarify that this skin tightening treatment has nothing to do with your age. Saggy skin and fine lines are common problems that a lot of women and men face. It is true that these issues usually occur at a later age, but many people face these issues as early as in their 20s owing to factors like prolonged exposure to the sun, stress and so on.
So, you can be in your 20s and by all means choose to go for this treatment if you feel your skin is losing its laxity and needs some extra care. Now that we’ve got this cleared out, let us understand the treatment.
One of the biggest perks of the Diamond Polar treatment is that it is non-surgical and non-evasive, so there is no downtime at all. The treatment involves the use of a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and skin laxity. The Multi-polar RF uses homogeneous energy and volumetric heating to multiple tissue depths which allows for a quick and safe buildup of heat, working at a therapeutic temperature in the skin. The RF heat directly stimulates fibroblasts, a cell that plays an important role in wound healing, while the PEMF stimulates new collagen production.
What To Expect At EHA Skincare
Generally, in this treatment, you can expect the application of a clear gel followed by a radio frequency. At EHA, when I arrived, first my skin was cleaned to get rid of any make-up I had on and then analyzed. Thereafter, I was provided with a soft cotton gown to change in the privacy of my treatment room where I was also provided with a locker and key to store my belongings safely. Once I was ready, I was given a warm blanket (personally, a big win for me because I often find myself shivering during treatments).
The treatment began with the beauty expert Joey, gently cleansing my face and then she gave me one of the most relaxing face and shoulder massages. It was so good that I fell asleep. She kindly allowed me some time to relax and then resumed the treatment where she applied the gel and started the radio frequency. The heat was quite bearable, in fact, it was comforting allowing me to steal another nap.
I came home relaxed, happy and with a glow on my face.
One session of the Diamond Polar Skin Tightening Treatment is priced at $250. To find out more, visit EHA Skincare at #01-15, Shaw Center, 1 Scotts Road or call them on 6235 3325. The staff are very friendly and helpful and will happily answer any questions you might have.
