Frequently Asked Questions

How are facials for men different compared to women’s facials?

Men’s skin are thicker compared to women. Men are not used to a beauty regime / routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising diligently (daily). Over time build up of such dead skin cells would dull the complexion and pores would also be blocked by the layers of keratinized cells. This condition is quite common for a lot of men thus it is not unusual if a great number of men suffer from acne, pimples and other blemishes. Most facials for men address this problem. The focus is more on cleansing, exfoliation, toning and moisturising. Congestions and blemishes from these conditions are treated and monitored and once the skin clears up, the clients are advised to adhere to a daily aftercare regime. For women, the issues are more specific e.g. hyperpigmented skin, premature aging, slackened skin etc. Women are more likely to adhere to a beauty routine and the issue of coarse thickened skin is quite rare. Most beauty centers thus tailor facials for specific problems.

The Oil Corrective Recovery Treatment will ensure your skin is deeply cleansed and blackheads are removed, thus eliminating the problems of clogged pores which are the main cause of blemishes. To further refine open pores and diminish scars, MSC Crystal Skin Therapy is the best choice.

I suffer from dark eye circles that tend to make my eyes look puffy and tired. To make things worse, they tend to accentuate the crow’s feet around my eyes. How can I revive and refresh the area around my eyes?

Stress and lack of sleep normally contribute to the appearance of dark eye circles and eye bags. Blood circulation and toxin elimination becomes sluggish, resulting in the retention of excess water around the eye zone, hence resulted in the formation of the eye bags. MSC Eye Treatment helps alleviate these conditions by improving blood circulation through relaxing lymphatic drainage messages. With the aid of current technology, the skin around the eye zone looks firmer and more elastic. RF Yeux de Beaute delivers radio frequency to remodel the collagen support network around the eye area, eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. It also balances the “Chi” force in the eye zone to boost lymphatic drainage which relieves puffy eyes and reduces dark eye circles.

My back is always dry and scaly. Worse still, pimples and blackheads are scattered all over my back and shoulders. What can I do?

How should I prepare my skin for the Hair Removal treatment?

The only suggested preparation is to avoid over-exposure to direct sunlight 2 to 4 weeks in advance. If you are out in the sun we recommend a SPF30 or higher sun block lotion.

What about after treatment?

We recommended you use pure Aloe Vera skin care products to soothe and protect the skin. For two days after treatment, we suggest you avoid stretching exercises as the skin may still be slightly sensitive. Moreover, avoid any skin care products that include alcohol, acid or oil elements for the first 24 hours. For 1 week after the treatment, you should also avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight.

What is the different between male and female slimming?

Body fat distribution differs between the sexes. The Body Mass Index (BMI) of women is usually higher that men while the Waist Hip Ratio (WHR) of men is higher than women. Male adipose tissue is usually centred around the waist (the Common ‘beer belly’ syndrome) and is not easily dispersed. Men have generally had a tougher time shaping and toning the body than women.

Why exercise is not the answer?

Exercise is useful for cardio-vascular health but cannot deliver the targeted body-shaping that comes from breaking up and dispersing fatty deposits. Indeed, if you exercise in the wrong way it can make things worse by trapping adipose tissue inside muscle fiber. Exercise also requires time and opportunity that many of today’s men lack.
