Combat the Skin's Hidden Enemy, Stress!
In the digitalized world, the epidemic of chronic stress, whether perceived or real, is causing a myriad of health issues that we may not realize. It's not only affecting one's mood and overall health, but it also has detrimental effects on the skin as well. Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also aggravate existing skin problems and make it harder to heal.
Having closely monitored thousands of our loyal customers' skin throughout the years, the team at the SK-II Boutique Spa recognized that the stress epidemic has also impacted the skin health of our clients. With this in mind, we have developed the Senze EO+ Facial with the aim to tackle the major impact that stress has on the skin & help restore holistic balance to the body, mind, and skin, one facial at a time!
With the holistic approach to skin care health, we look into not only just skin deep, but overall well-being. The Senze EO+ Facial incorporates the following 4 elements making it a gentle, yet powerful stress-reliever facial:
The use of essential oils in alternative healings is not new, neither is the use in beauty & skin care treatments. So, what is so different with this Senze EO+ Facial?
In the 1950s, an Austrian biochemist named Marguerite Maury pioneered essential oils in spa-like clinics focused on holistic well-being, beauty, and rejuvenation. She developed the early massage techniques with the use of aromatherapy. She found that a massage with essential oils was useful in promoting relaxation, treating skin conditions, and relieving certain types of pain.
The Research & Development team at the SK-II Boutique Spa leverages on this master technique in aromatherapy practices for the Senze EO+ Facial to develop a unique 40-minutes massage that offers greater heighten relaxation, increase circulation and reduce any existing stress. Massage is conducted at key upper body areas including the face, neck, shoulder and even scalp.
Furthermore, through our research, we discovered that many clients were experiencing lymphatic blockages due to stress, which resulted in the skin's inability to absorb the nutrients, thus leading to less than optimal results from skincare products and treatments. As such, we paid more attention to the lymph node drainage and stimulation to promote better absorption of key ingredients (SK-II and the organic essential oils) - all pertinent in delivering exceptional and therapeutic benefits to the skin and well-being.
Another unique thing about the Senze EO+ Facial is the incorporation of the ancient healing practice of hand reflexology into our massage protocol.
The Senze EO+ Facial includes the main foundation of our facial treatments such as Triple Cleansing steps, Extractions of impurities, Mask with ultrasound, and ends with SK-II product application. The Essential range of SK-II products is used in these steps including SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser, SK-II Treatment Repair C, and SK-II Facial Treatment Mask. Furthermore, it may also include the special range of products such as the RNA and Genoptics ranges as well as specialized masks, depending on the skin needs.

What Is Health?
WHO defines Health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or illness. In short, health is when our cells are functioning optimally.
Illness is the absence of health. They can manifest in the form of pain, weakness, flu, etc. When we developed a fever or pain, they the sign of illness.
But when illness strikes and develops into a fever, is it a bad thing? Well, it is both bad and good.
It is bad because it means our health is not well looked after or neglected over time. It is an indication that the cells are not functioning optimally.
It is good because our body is fighting the illness. What happen when we developed a viral infection? We may develop fever. But do you know that fever is our body defence mechanism at work? A fever stimulates our immune system into producing more white blood cells, antibodies, and a protein called interferon, all of which work to protect our body against harmful microorganisms. A fever makes it harder for invading bacteria and viruses to survive and flourish.
When we fall sick, the doctor prescribes us medication. Medication merely relieve and suppress the symptoms. Importantly, our body is capable in healing itself. The best way to prevent illness is to look after the wellbeing of our body well. Eat well, rest well, exercise and maintain good lifestyle habits.
But when we feel well, we assume our body/cells are functioning at its optimum level. We tend to let our guard down, and allow ourselves some indulgence to rich tasty food, skip exercise, drink less water, etc. Maintaining good health takes a life time effort. It does not stop halfway when we feel well, energetic or strong. Our body will hold up for as long as we maintain it.
What Is Skin Health?
Skin Health is just like our overall health. We need to look after it well. We need to ensure the cells in our skin are functioning at their optimum level. Often times, we don't pay much attention to this because our skins look fine, and naturally we assume our skin is healthy. So, here's the question:
"Why are you here today? Why do you sense the need to visit your facial specialist?" You are here possibly because you notice something about your skin that concerns you. Or perhaps you are those who understand the importance of good skin health, and you wish to seek professional solution to help upkeep your skin at its optimum level. Whichever the reasons, you have made the right move!
When your skin develops signs of trouble, be it breakout, acne, spots, lines, dullness. It is the manifestation of the state of your skin health. The skin cells are probably not functioning at their optimum level. For these symptoms to happen, the condition may have developed over time. So, what can you do about it?
You need to start looking after the overall wellbeing of your skin. To do so, it requires the following efforts.
At the SK-II Boutique Spa, we believe in helping you realize the importance of skin health, and take the right approach to preserving and nurturing your skin to achieve its optimum level.
Our role is to assist you to better understand your skin care needs, and recommend you a treatment program that is holistic and sustainable.

If your complexion is looking worse for wear, help is on hand with the newly launched Senze Renewal Proionic Facial from SK-II Boutique Spa. This luxurious treatment makes use of the INDIBA Proionic RF machine to help skin cells recover their natural function and aid in microcirculation. The result? Skin that looks significantly rejuvenated and revived.
The Technology Behind INDIBA Proionic RF
This patented and clinically proven technology makes use of high frequency currents emitted through a metal massage head to improve skin firmness and lift contours. The specific radiofrequency of 448 kHz is the most suitable frequency of the mobilisation of ions. When the flow of ions has been optimised, your cells' electric potential is balanced, allowing it to recover its vital functions. This helps promote lymphatic drainage, stimulate the lipolysis process, and improve the supply of oxygen and nutrients to your cells.
A Visible Difference
The INDIBA Proionic RF system offers three key benefits for your skin – non-thermal, thermal, and hyperthermal. Non-thermal refers to the improved circulation and metabolism of your cells; thermal refers to greater microcirculation of cells; and hyperthermal refers to the reduction of fat. This three-pronged approach contributes to a dramatic reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, the firming and lifting of saggy skin, and redefined facial contours. The efficacy of the INDIBA Proionic RF system is best experienced at SK-II Boutique Spa where premium SK-II products are used before and after machine application. Some of the key products used include:
These products are specifically chosen for their anti-ageing and firming properties. The RF heat from the system helps improve blood circulation, which enables the product ingredients to penetrate more deeply into the skin, allowing you to enjoy the optimal benefits of the SK-II skincare ingredients.
Indulgent pampering is the order of the day at SK-II Boutique Spa. The Senze Renewal Proionic Facial also includes an aroma inhalation and scalp massage, a mini neck and shoulder massage, and a cold ball compress (to reduce the risk of overheating the skin). After each treatment, you'll feel a renewed sense of vigour – both physically and mentally.
Duration: 85 minutes
Recommended number of sessions: 6 to 8 sessions.
From there, you can opt for maintenance treatments once a month or once every 3 months.
The new Senze Rejuvenating PLUS Facial promises to deliver highly advanced solution in skin rejuvenation. This latest addition to the intensive range of treatments leverages on the innovative synergy created by combining the goodness of Pitera®-rich SK-II products, pampering & complete facial protocol with the FDA-approved 3Deep technology, the latest in advance Radio Frequency technology (using patented & FDA-approved Endymed equiptment). This unique treatment works from deep within to firm up and rejuvenate the skin, revealing more youthful, supple, crystal clear skin from the very first session& Furthermore, the Senze Rejuvenating Plus Facial is designed to offer optimal benefits in one facial and as such incorporated the full facial protocol that includes pore care (extractions), soothing lifting massage, and hydrating/anti-ageing mask treatment.
This cult favourite feature started in 2007 has since been enhanced to further provide optimal comfort for our guests. This initiative is transforming the way our guests feel while enjoying their favorite treatments. Senze Salus is proud to lead the way by introducing a definitive spa treatment bed affectionately known as the Senzational Bed. Designed with the ultimate experience in mind, the new Senzational Bed is now wider and extra plush to provide a truly heavenly feel for our guests. This is essentially a 5-star bed and our guests will be so pampered that they will emerge totally refreshed and recharged.
Besides the luxury feel, the Senzational Bed is designed with a deeper purpose, and that is to fulfil a holistic effort in delivering better results in our treatments. A good facial should deliver 2 key benefits. The first is the quality of treatments for the skin deploying the right method and science of skin care to renew, rejuvenate, nourish and heal the skin.
The second and equally important part of facials is the relaxation quality. Besides the pampering facial massage, the whole body must be equally pampered to generate optimum relaxation which reduces the body's internal stress (cortisol) level and that is important to attain a truly holistic wellbeing. A good facial therefore must work to serve not just for the skin on the face but the whole body as well.
So, what makes the Senzational Bed the most indulgent?
Like all living things, our skin needs oxygen for normal metabolic processes, such as repair and regeneration. In younger skin, this process is very efficient. However, as we age, the skin does not receive the nourishment it needs. As a result, the metabolism of our skin cells slows down. Collagen and elastin content are reduced; Fine lines, wrinkles, skin dullness and discolouration begin to appear; Sun exposure, air pollution, extreme hot and cold variancies, diet fluctuations, worries, day-to-day stresses and strains of life affect the condition of our skin.
The Senze Oxygenated Facial is developed to tackle such skin concerns &conditions. Using a premium grade equipment & high concentration of pure oxygen (up to 98%), this treatment rejuvenate the skin with the infusion of oxygen that is delivered deep into the skin, while guests can breathe in the pure oxygen for inner well being. SK-II Treatment Essence is applied with the oxygen spray for a more even spread & deeper penetration for a soothing effect. The infusion of oxygen also helps to treat sensitive skin (eczema and psoriasis) & acne prone skin.
