It’s not at all surprising that many common misconceptions surrounding skincare and skin maintenance prevail, predominantly in view of the innumerable extent of information and knowledge we are constantly bombarded with, which ultimately makes it challenging to decipher truth from myth.

Amongst the most widespread misconceptions include – Expensive skincare products are the most effective; all forms of skincare treatments cost an arm and a leg; and undergoing a skincare treatment most certainly indicates having to take a pause from your routine to allow the skin to heal, however long that may be.

There is, in fact, little to no truth to those aforementioned claims, and global beauty trailblazer NOVU Aesthetics – A Singapore-founded aesthetic chain that has since established its footprint in the industry with over 250 locations worldwide – is out to debunk them with its revolutionised, no-downtime services and extended offerings.

Backed up by certified medical expertise at its core fused with state-of-the-art technology as well as clinically-tested products and multiple accolades, NOVU Aesthetics aims to bring to the forefront trusted, safe and results-driven skincare and aesthetics that are kept greatly accessible to clients across the board.

The question is – Is it all as promising as it seems? We recently visited NOVU Aesthetics and put its signature treatment to the test.

Every client who walks in for the first time is assessed via The NOVU 360 Solution based on three underlying principles: Colour – Uneven or dull-looking skin tone and pigmentation; Consistency – Roughness, enlarged pores, acne and post-acne scarring; and Contour – Skin ageing including fine lines and wrinkles.

A thorough scan and careful personal evaluation later, it was time to undergo NOVU Aesthetic’s signature treatment which includes a combination of P+ Phtyo Laser, Radiance Light and NOVU Ion Infusion. While it sounds complicated, all the procedures were completed swiftly within the span of 15 minutes. Let us break it down:

P+ Phyto Laser

This non-ablative treatment treats a number of skin concerns, including the lightening of pigmentation, promoting skin rejuvenation, refining the skin texture and plumping up signs of ageing. Though undergoing a laser treatment seems intimidating, it was barely unpleasant and very gentle.

Radiance Light

Using bouts of Intense Pulse Light (IPL), this treatment delivers a brighter and healthier glow to the skin by stimulating collagen production and reducing sebum production. It works hand-in-hand with the P+ Phyto Laser for an even and glowing complexion.

NOVU Ion Infusion

To seal in the aftereffects and pump the skin with moisture, NOVU Aesthetics’ Kakadu Serum is first applied onto the skin before an Ion Infusion machine is used to stimulate absorption so the skin soaks up all of its skin-loving nutrients. It also promotes the reduction of dark spots.

It’s expected to be skeptical over the efficacy of the treatment in light of just how short of a time the procedures took, but there were immediate results. Aside from a visibly smoother skin texture and minimised pores, the skin appeared much brighter and more radiant, whereas the skin felt more plump and bouncy.

It is recommended for clients to undergo the signature treatment at NOVU Aesthetics consistently in order to achieve longer-lasting results. With that said, the non-abrasive treatments are indeed gentle enough to be done frequently and wouldn’t harm or irritate the skin in any way.

We’d highly recommend giving the signature treatment at NOVU Aesthetics a go, more so should you be someone who is always pressed for time yet has no intention of neglecting your skin in the midst of it all. It’s a quick, lunchtime treatment with zero downtime and you can go about your day right after – and what’s not to love about that?
