Beauty solutions and wellness
TRADITIONAL beauty treatments may seem outdated next to the latest pimple zapper or skin-revitalising laser.
But that is not to say that they do not have their benefits.
Beauty and wellness centre De Beaute Face Skin and Body Spa offers a wide range of beauty treatments using the latest technology and some traditional methods.
Founded in 2001 by former Miss Singapore Universe Cori Teo, De Beaute provides a wide range of services, from body slimming and facials to massages and even navel candling.
Some high-tech treatments include intense pulsed light (IPL) facial revitalisation and hair removal, radio-frequency slimming and Oxyjet facials.
Some traditional methods are also used in De Beaute's facial and slimming treatments.
The Chinese "gua sha" facial involves scraping the skin with a sandy surface to exfoliate it.
Indonesian "jamu" slimming, which involves using traditional herbs to aid in slimming parts of the body, is also offered. This should be coupled with regular exercise and a balanced diet.
Apart from performing superficial skin treatments, De Beaute also takes care of customer wellness.
Trained body therapists are available to perform body massages, including deep tissue, shiatsu, lymphatic drainage and aromatherapy.
De Beaute clinics are designed to evoke the feeling of ultimate luxury, with elements of Thai royal court and palaces in the decor.
The spa has shower facilities, a jacuzzi, hydrojet therapy and sauna, which create a relaxed, rejuvenating experience for the customer.
