About Porcelain The Face Spa
I had the pleasure of hosting an event for Porcelain The Face Spa several months ago. It was a small intimate gathering and I got to understand the history of this luxurious brand a little better. Porcelain The Face Spa, is in fact, a home-grown Singaporean brand and has established itself as the two-time winner of the Best Beauty Spa in Asia Continent at the World Luxury Spa Awards. That is a great feat for a brand that is only about 5 years young! Clients love Porcelain for providing highly effective aesthetic and skin solutions to transform not only their appearance but also their overall state of mind. As a woman, there are days where my hair is a mess and I have a bad breakout. Feeling good about oneself DOES start from taking care of one’s appearance.
So at Porcelain, their philosophy is that good skin should be clear and radiant from within and they seek to treat the root of the problem. By allowing our skin to breathe, our skin can gain radiance naturally. No two skins are the same. At Porcelain, each treatment is customized specially according to the client’s skin condition.
The Porcelain Experience
Recently, I got to experience and understand why women love the Porcelain The Face Spa.
Its flagship branch, Porcelain, The Face Spa located at Cantonment Road offers facial treatments. The good news is they have opened a second branch, Porcelain Aesthetics at Orchard Gateway which offers a comprehensive menu of highly effective aesthetic treatments.
Making my way down to the newly open branch at Orchard Gateway, I was greeted by a sleek and sophisticated spa interior. Decked out in muted greys, whites and blacks, it was welcoming as it was elegant.
As mentioned earlier, Porcelain customises each treatment according to the client’s skin’s needs. So to determine the problem areas and the effectiveness of my treatment, therapist, Jacelyn, ushered me to the skin analysis area. She looked deep into the areas of moisture level, sebum production, skin elasticity, wrinkles, pores and pigmentation to determine where I needed the most help.
After carefully reviewing my skin conditions, she kindly recommended their award-winning facial – the Proionic V-Shape Facial. This treatment helps to improve blood and lymphatic circulation, increase collagen and elastic fibre production for firmer and smoother skin. Because our skin is full of blood vessels under its surface, it made perfect sense to ensure that blood flow circulation to encourage skin radiance and health. Aside from the lymphatic drainage massage, there would also be a firming and hydrating treatment. The whole facial session would last a total of 75 minutes. Yay relaxing time!

The Proionic V-Shape Facial Treatment
Before we started the facial, the therapist patiently explained to me that the Proionic Facial is suitable for ALL SKIN TYPES. I am not gonna lie and say that I have no worries about turning 30. So it was definitely good news to hear that the treatment would help prevent saggy and wrinkled skin and rejuvenate dull and fatigued skin. I certainly needed help with my fatigued skin after much travel and late nights.
The signature treatment of Porcelain Aesthetics utilises a unique patented 448kHz radio frequency technology to produce a ‘Proionic effect’. This facilitates the exchange of positive and negative ions in the skin cells to create a balanced state of ions, thereby giving you healthy cells. Delving into a little basic science here, but we all know that our cells are made up of positive and negative charges. Having our skin cells skewed too much in one charge can severely damage your skin condition and even caused unwanted cell growth.
So it was during the lymphatic treatment, Jacelyn used a little heating wand to encourage lymphatic drainage and cell balance. She positioned the heating wand to the different lymph nodes and gently held it there for several seconds. It is normal to experience some heat similar to that of a heat pack on your skin. I asked about how It is similar to applying pressure to your lymph nodes to encourage them to open. Some skins may be sensitive to heat, and as a first timer, you may experience mild flushing on the face (similar to a sunburn look) but that quickly dissipates after a few hours.
The treatment rejuvenates and improves skin elasticity, boosting overall facial contours instantly for a younger-looking ‘V’-shaped face.
Overall, the treatment is relaxing and the sensation is similar to that of having a facial massage and it was so relaxing I almost dozed off and had to struggle to keep myself awake so I can document this experience and my results.
On a daily basis, our skin is exposed to dirt, dust and UV rays. Add to that, late nights and and stress, it was not hard to see that my skin was getting dull. But after the treatment, there was a radiance and luminosity on my skin I hadn’t seen in a while. The detoxification certainly helped!
Every woman should have some time to herself and indulge in a facial, it is one of the best things you can do to pamper and relax your mind. Not only did the Proionic facial uplift my mood and spirits, it also saw the lift most prominently around my jawline and was certain my jaw line was more defined.
You can see that on the right side of the picture, my skin is more taut and skin looks more firm than the left. Hello facial contour! My cheeks look fuller and cheekbones more prominent. Ha. I have a lopsided face in this photo. But Jacelyn quickly solved it by working on the other side of my face. More importantly, at the end, my skin was not as dull as when I first walked in. By opening the lymph nodes and draining the toxins from my skin, my skin was brighter and fairer immediately.
On top of that, the radio frequency technology has been proven to stimulate collagen production and increase elastin levels. The 448kHz radio frequency technology used by Porcelain Aesthetics is safe and gentle on the skin. Did you know that this signature Proionic facial can not only be done on the face, but also on the tummy, thighs, neck and décolletage too!
It is fantastic that you can see immediate results after just one session of the Proionic facial session. Based on that, can you imagine that what a course of treatment with the Proionic V-Shape Treatment will do for your skin long term? For optimal results, the therapists recommend an initial course of 6 to 8 sessions, thereafter the treatment can be done once a month as maintenance for long-lasting results.
At the end of the treatment, to make sure my eyes were not playing tricks on me, the therapist did a review and captured an “after” snapshot of my skin. More importantly, this was to ensure consistency in measurement. The results showed great improvement in the moisture level and lesser pigmentation. HOORAY!
