BEST PORE-REFINING FACIAL BB BABY SKIN BOOSTER 
$3600 for four sessions, The Aesthetics Medical Clinic
Those familiar with the Rejuran Healer and PDRN (polydeoxyribonucleotide) will know the restorative benefi ts of salmon DNA. After applying numbing cream, the bio-compatible substance is delivered through micro injections to the source of collagen and elastin production, stimulating the skin’s regenerating functions. A healing mask with a cold probe then soothes the skin. You may first face  bumpy skin with tiny red spots, but what follows after a day or so are shrunken pores, smoother texture, improved density and lightened blemishes. Visit tamc.com.sg

BEST MICRODERMABRASION DIAMOND DIVA FACE THERAPY
$220 for 75 minutes, Privé Aesthetics
Goodbye, enlarged pores and blemishes; hello, smoother and revitalised skin. This treatment begins with deep cleansing, before potent serums are applied in the microdermabrasion process, where a diamond-tipped wand gently exfoliates the skin’s surface. A mild suction then lifts all impurities away, before a customised mask to refresh and nourish. Visit priveaesthetics.com

BEST QUICK-FIX FACIAL HIGH-BRIGHT TREATMENT
$250 for 45 minutes, Kosme Aesthetics
Providing immediate relief for skin concerns like acne, pigmentation, dullness and unevenness, this laser facial delivers intense contact cooling to tighten and lift the skin’s layers using freezing temperatures. Skin is visibly tauter and brighter after one session. Visit kosmeaesthetics.com

BEST LIFTING AND FIRMING FACIAL M SKIN GYM
$449.40 per session, Moyem Medical Aesthetics
Like a workout for your face, this treatment strengthens, tones and sculpts in three parts: An exfoliation to eliminate dead skin cells and activate cell renewal; monopolar radio frequency energy to  boost circulation and collagen remodelling; and an infusion of peptides and vitamins before micro-ultrasound energy enhances lymphatic drainage. Visit moyemmedical.com

BEST SKIN REJUVENATOR NEOGEN PLASMA FACELIFT
$400 for 60 to 75 minutes, Calvin Chan Aesthetics
A non-surgical facelift treatment, this remodels the skin’s natural architecture, and instantly rejuvenates and lifts it from within. An ideal needleless approach to renewal, it uses NeoGen technology to convert nitrogen gas into plasma energy, gently treating dull and problematic skin to reveal a younger appearance. Visit calvinchanaesthetics.com

BEST SKIN-REFINING FACIAL TETRA 4-IN-1 TREATMENT 
$425 for 90 minutes, The Aesthetics Medical Clinic
A multi-tasking treatment perfect for busy urbanites, the TETRA 4-in-1 Treatment utilises lasers of varying wavelengths to zoom in on varied skin irregularities all at once. Think: A long-pulse wavelength to boost collagen production, a fractional wavelength to firm and refine skin texture, plus a unique pigment wavelength that can break down melanin clusters, ridding skin of sun spots, freckles, melasma and acne scars. In turn, skin is visibly refined with a healthy glow. Visit tamc.com.sg
