Facials: Paula Stewart Microdermabrasion
Aussie Paula Stewart has been beautifying faces in Singapore since she arrived on our sunny shores 13 years ago. She’ll bring her microdermabrasion machine to you, suctioning out blackheads and oil before blasting skin with fine crystals to slough off dead cells and leave your face feeling soft, smooth and super-clean. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive – no need to hide from the public due to red blotchiness, mamas! – and is suitable for all skin types. It’s particularly beneficial for combating sun damage and pigmentation — ideal for our equatorial clime!
