Not long ago, we shared about one of AsterSpring’s new facial treatment, the Intense Hydra-Light Therapy, a hi-performance synergy facial that combine the latest technology from Dermalogica with highly potent IonActive™ Hyaluronic Acid and Gelloids concentrates and bt-accent® LED Light that’s tailored to your unique skin type.

I made my way to AsterSpring at The Starling to try out this unique treatment to give you the 411.

The bt-accent® LED Light technology used in AsterSpring’s Intense Hydra-Light Therapy incorporates different color light depending on to target different on your skin type, that helps to accelerate skin renewal and reveal a smoother, firmer and radiant complexion.

The Treatment

The facial starts with a PreCleanse then, the therapist did a double cleanse using the Essential Cleansing Solution and Daily Microfoliant.

Next, she exfoliated my skin with the Isotonic Hydrating Bubble Cleanser that contains coconut fibre.

The bubbles of the cleanser will slowly dissolve until only the coconut fibres are left, then it will be scraped off with a spatula.

For my skin, the therapist has chosen the Violet-coloured light which is suitable for sensitive skin to help calm and relax sensitive skin. It reduces redness, flare-ups and irritated skin too.

The LED Light was left on for up to 15 minutes then, she applied an Isotonic Bio-Cellulose Mask, followed with an Upper Shoulder Movements massage while I was masking.

This in-depth facial is a nice pampering treat for us busy folks. Your skin will get an intensive cleanse and treatment to clear up your skin’s dullness, clogged pores and saggy, bloated skin. The LDM Machine gave me a slight ticklish feeling but it wasn’t very uncomfortable. I didn’t feel anything when the LED Light machine was close to my face but it definitely very bright so remember to close your eyes even when the therapist put googles on you. My skin never looked more revitalized and brighter after the therapy.
