While I totally recommend that everyone make time for a monthly facial, I also know just how hard that can be with our busy work-life schedules, so when I was invited to try out Ombre Concepts’s express facial treatments, I was intrigued. Was a 30 minute facial treatment worth the effort? Turns out, it was.

Fitting in an half-hour express facial treatment during your lunch break is totally doable, and the best part is that it is a fabulous mid-day pick me-up, and self-care treat you can give yourself a couple of times a month. An express facial gives you ample time to scarf down a quick lunch, and then enjoy a power-nap while your skilled facialist works her magic on your face, allowing you to head back to office looking, and feeling totally rested, pampered, glowing and fab!

Ombré is a homegrown and newly established brand that combines 30 years of experience in the local beauty industry. Equipped with new-age technology, they hope to provide effective and rejuvenating facial treatments to those who are time-strapped and want a hassle-and haggle-free service.

The brand’s objective is to provide their clients with healthy and radiant skin in the shortest possible time, using the latest professional skincare technology and products, minus the stress of signing packages and hard-sell pitches.

Ombré offers five different express facial treatments, all of which can be done in 30 minutes or less:

Hydraclean: At just $28, this facial uses Ombré’s Hydraclean machine to provide deep cleansing and skin exfoliation in just 15 minutes. Through the use of a spiral wand tip that creates a vortex effect, the goal is to effectively and painlessly remove impurities while nourishing the skin.

Hydrafusion: This deep cleansing facial treatment takes only 30 minutes and costs $58. By using thermotherapy and cryotherapy, the Hydrafusion facial treatment stimulates blood circulation and tightens pores while infusing an ampoule into the skin. To tackle different skin conditions and skin types, five different ampoules are available:

Hyaluronic ampoule for treating dehydrated skin, Ceramide ampoule for treating sensitive and dehydrated skin, Arbutin ampoule for treating dull and pigmented skin, Mandelic acid ampoule for treating acne or ageing skin and Copper peptide ampoule for treating ageing or wrinkled skin.

Mesojet: By using a high-pressure jet ejector, the ampoule’s ingredients are pushed into the skin’s dermis layer. This $58 treatment uses advanced technology to quickly break down the contents of the ampoule into nano-molecules, and high-pressure blasts of air mimic an injection that penetrates 90% of the ampoule’s contents into the dermis layer of the skin.

Some may find this treatment too ‘intense’ due to the loud noise produced by the high-pressure air jet blasts. Therefore, this 30-minute facial treatment is recommended for those who have had facial treatments in the past. I have actually tried this technology before (at a different salon) and have found it to be perfectly tolerable with the use of ear plugs. A single treatment results in instantaneous, radiant, and dewy skin, and is totally worth the loud sound.

EndyMed Face V-Lift: Take half an hour to try the non-invasive lifting and contouring facial treatment EndyMed Face V-Lift priced at $98. With its controlled and focused 3DEEP RF Technology, the EndyMed machine delivers energy deep into the dermis layer of the skin, reaching 52 – 55C with minimal epidermal heat, reducing fat and giving your face a more sculpted appearance within a short amount of time.

EndyMed Eye Lift: As one of the first areas to show signs of ageing, the periorbital region can be rejuvenated using EndyMed Eye Lift’s non-surgical, effective, safe and non-invasive treatment. With its unparalleled volumetric heating, 3DEEP provides maximum treatment efficacy. During this 30-minute treatment priced at $98, under-eye bags are reduced, the skin is smoothed and tightened, and the upper eyelid is lifted to give the eye a more open, and youthful appearance.

The Ombré-Sculpt treatment uses a non-invasive technology known as High-Intensity Pulsed ElectroMagnetic (HIPEM) energy to tone and lift the targeted parts of the body. Women who are seeking to get rid of their Diastasis Recti or individuals who wish to sculpt a six-pack or lift their buttocks are recommended to try out this treatment.
