We have all heard of an AHA chemical peel but what about a milk peel? SkinLab’s Gentle Milk Exfoliation Facial Treatment is the gentlest of all its peel-type facials.
Do you know that if you do not remove the dead and damaged skin cells on the upper layers of your face, you will reap zero benefits even if you pile on tons of expensive SKII products? You wouldn’t want to waste all the money spent on expensive products as well.
A facial peel helps to exfoliate the surface of your skin, encourage skin cell regeneration and helps you absorb the products effectively in your skin care regime.
Due to my dry skin type, the consultant did not recommend the Salicylic Acid Peel but suggested the gentle milk exfoliation facial instead which can give me a much needed hydration boost and also aids in anti-aging, deep cleansing of pores, skin brightening, evening of skin tone and even stimulate your natural collagen production!
The entire range of products for the Gentle Milk Exfoliation Facial Treatment are from Germany.
The Difference in SkinLab The Medical Spa
SkinLab uses advance equipment and technology and their quality skin care products can only be found exclusively in SkinLab. Their professionally trained beauty therapists have a minimum 5 years of working experience both locally and overseas.
At SkinLab, they are required to undergo continuous weekly assessments and on-the-job training to properly identify and carried out the best treatment to meet the needs of their clients.
The Decor and Ambience
Having been to many spas for massage and facial treatments before, I think SkinLab is rather spacious and furnished in a clean, minimalist style from the reception area, consultation room and right down to the treatment rooms.
The therapist told me that the Wheelock outlet was just newly renovated a few months ago, no wonder I felt so comfortable!
There is a 5% lactic acid in the Gentle Milk Exfoliation Facial Treatment. Lactic acid peels causes less irritation compared to glycolic acid and is the best choice even for sensitive and rosacea prone skin.
Professional treatments use lactic acid peels at higher concentrations and at a lower pH than what you can achieve at home without causing any skin irritation or downtime and are also more effective.
The therapist uses some heat from the steam to promote skin exfoliation and for better absorption of the nutrients and hydration products onto my skin later on. I am also quite surprised that the extraction that ensues was not painful at all and the therapist gently placed a cotton pad soaked with Rosewater to calm and sooth the skin after extraction.
She then skilfully trims my eye brows after extraction. I really like this eye brows grooming service as not every spas offer this service during facial treatments. A pair of nice brows always makes me feel more confident!
The therapist then uses an aromatic milk massage cream to massage my face and shoulders which also help to stimulate collagen production and the massage really relieved my tensed shoulder muscles!
I love that this relaxing treatment gently exfoliates while effectively hydrates my skin using a combination of pure milk proteins and mild lactic acid, without causing any redness or irritation to my skin. It was a pure bliss to enjoy!
And this must be the reason why it is the most popular facial treatment among SkinLab’s customers that even Cleopatra would want to indulge in!
The 90-min long Gentle Milk Exfoliation Facial Treatment cost $158.
