 WITH HALLOWEEN done and dusted for another year, it’s time to look forward to the end of year holidays. 

And if you want to look your best for the festivities, you might want to consider getting a little help from the latest in aesthetic technology to achieve a “Glass Skin” complexion.

‘Glass Skin’ is the latest beauty trend in South Korea and refers to a glowing complexion so smooth and flawless that it looks like a panel of glass. 

Achieving a glowing, almost reflective skin is only possible if there are no fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and scars. As such , the only way to get that “glass skin” is to eliminate pigmentation, reduce fine lines and diminish pore size. 

The good news is that the Nu Pico Laser holds promise for achieving the kind of perfect complexion that’s guaranteed to make you the belle of the ball. 

Laser technology is known for its effectiveness in pigmentation treatment. However, following laser treatment, Asian skin, with its epidermal higher melanin content, tends to develop adverse pigmentary reactions such as post-inflammatory hypo and hyper pigmentation (PIH), caused by too much heat or thermal energy.

These complications can be minimised by the Nu Pico Laser, the latest advancement in laser technology that minimises damage to surrounding tissue, and reduces PIH as well. It does this by delivering the energy rapidly in pico-seconds, faster than a conventional nanosecond, converting to acoustic shockwaves instead of heat. 

These acoustic shockwaves finely scatter the melanin into tiny particles, which the body can be easily and naturally get rid of. This can mean a safe treatment, for all skin types, with the better clearance of the pigmentation and less treatments overall.

For those concerned about rough and uneven skin texture, the Nu Pico Laser also can be used to treat and improve the texture of skin in a gentle way. It delivers energy in a much shorter time to stimulate the production of new collagen fibres in the deeper skin layers without damaging the upper layer of skin. 

This leads to faster, safer and less painful treatment. The increase of new collagen helps to reduce fine lines and pore size, resulting in smooth and youthful skin, with no downtime, just in time for your festive season.

It is said that when you feel good, you look good. Which is why having glowing and smooth skin is a must for any big occasion.
