Mirage Aesthetic facial for clear and moisturised skin
Having watched a K-drama or two, it’s always difficult to keep my eyes off the heroine’s glowy “glass skin”. It’s the latest Korean beauty trend – having skin so plump and moisturised, till it’s almost translucent like glass. But wait up: you can actually achieve this beauty look.
Glass skin means that your skin’s in the prime of its health, and that’s what Mirage Aesthetic is putting on the table. Unlike sheet masks and shimmery highlighters that’ll give an all-over temporary sheen, Mirage Aesthetic’s Nano Crystallise Hyaluronic Skin Booster Treatment aims to give you lasting clear and poreless skin. Be prepared to shine bright like a diamond.
Skin consultation at Mirage Aesthetic
My first experience with Mirage Aesthetic was for their BB Facial Treatment, and I’ve come to expect a thorough consulting sesh that’ll shed much-needed insight on the condition of my skin. And of course, they came through with a high-tech machine that zoomed in on each and every blemish on my face.
The consultant told me that my skin is extremely dehydrated – and that doesn’t simply mean dry. Instead, she explained that dehydration occurs when skin is lacking hydration. Slabbing on all the moisturisers in the world wouldn’t salvage dehydrated skin, since it only reaches the surface level of your skin cells.
Nano Crystallise Hyaluronic Skin Booster Treatment
First, I was led into a cosy room which had tons of lush greenery around, putting me instantly at ease.
Step 1: Double cleanse
All facials need to start on a clean slate, so to rid the skin of any impurities, my skin was cleansed twice. The first with a mild cream cleanser to remove dirt and grime, and the second, a scrub to exfoliate oil and sebum build-up.
I easily sank into complete and utter relaxation with the aesthetican’s gentle massage!
Step 2. Massage skin booster into the skin with nanocrystalline injector
No matter how diligent you are with your multi-step Korean skincare regimen, products like moisturisers, serums, and essences might only improve things on the surface. But this skin booster treatment penetrates all the way through to reach skin cells.
Good thing too, when it’s made up of collagen and other luxe ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, and oligopeptide filaments – 500 grams is supposedly worth USD60,000! These boost collagen growth by increasing collagen elastic fibres, which helps to slow down aging.
There’ll be a nanocrystalline injector – this means micro-sized needles – set at radiofrequency heat (RF) to pump all the goodness into your skin. RF heat helps to open up all your pores, but you won’t even feel a twinge of heat and it was more cool and calming than anything.
But just in case, you can opt for the numbing cream – the aesthetician will apply this to prominently bony areas, mostly across your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline.
Another interesting thing I noted was that the injector comes in three different LED modes: Blue – for acne and oily skin, Green – for sensitive and acne prone skin, and Red – to refine pores and lift. For me, the aesthetician used Green and Red since I have both dry and sensitive skin.
Step 3: Moisturise with the Silk Protein Mask
Once the injector’s done working its magic, the aesthetician will gently apply a Silk Protein Mask, which resembles a Korean sheet mask in how its soft and dripping with nutrients. Like the booster, this particular mask is filled with collagen peptides and polypeptides filaments, and will transform troubled skin into bouncy and radiant skin.
Step 4: Tighten skin with 5D Sculpture Lifting Protein Mask
A 5D Sculpture Lifting Protein Mask ties everything together by giving your face some major lift. It’s not just any regular mass-manufactured mask – instead, the treatment’s applied to fit the precise contours of your face.
The aesthetician will lightly drape layers over your face, and yes, that includes eyelids and lips. The only openings left were for your nostrils so you can still breathe. Much like clay, it’ll slowly harden into a cakey material.
All in all, it was a relaxing process. The mask was left on for about 15 minutes and I liked how it was slightly cool to the touch before hardening – it felt like nutrients were seeping into my skin, encased in a mask of collagen goodness.
Step 5: Massage with serum and sunscreen
Once the aesthetician removed the mask, she immediately massaged in a soothing post-treatment serum. It was similar to the consistency of a watery toner. She then ended the facial with the most vital skincare product – sunscreen.
What a pleasant surprise! I took a quick glance in the mirror, and my skin was glowing in a quality similar to glass. This isn’t just your run-of-the-mill dewy skin – my complexion was now smooth and hydrated, and had a sheen that a Sephora-bought highlighter won’t be able to pull off.
But the question is: do the results last? There was an instant lift to my cheeks and jawline right after the treatment, and my chin was noticeably sharper. This faded a few days later, but my skin is still hydrated – it’s bouncy to the touch with less creases of dehydration around my eyes.
