Did you know that the skin around the eyes is about six times thinner than that on the rest of the face?  This area also has fewer sebaceous glands that produce sebum, the natural lubricant that keeps skin
moist. Add to that the thousands of repetitive muscle movements that occur in the eye area daily, and it’s no wonder that it is often one of the first to show signs of ageing. And while laugh lines are indicative of plenty of happy times, they can age you—never a good thing.

At the root of intrinsic skin ageing is sluggish cellular metabolism—often due to inadequate rest, an unhealthy lifestyle, long-term exposure to UV rays and urban pollutants, a lack of proper care or simply the natural ageing process. And it is precisely this that MTM’s ES’TE Amour Eye: Lift & Drain treatment seeks to rectify. Specially designed to tackle issues in the eye area, including signs of ageing such as dryness and fine lines, it works on optimising cellular metabolism and restoring cellular functions, gradually improving elasticity and boosting density for a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance.

Driven by the Local Dynamic Micromassage technology, the treatment employs two mechanical waves at varying frequencies, creating a continuous change in frequency.  transported between and within cells. It is also said to tighten connective skin tissue and help improve the skin’s moisture-retaining ability, for a lifting and plumping effect. Meanwhile, heat generated by the waves—don’t worry, all you’ll feel is a relaxing warmth—boosts microcirculation while stimulating the synthesis of new collagen and elastin. Powering this treatment, too, is a host of MTM Custom-Blended Skincare, all specially concocted for Asian skin and its unique characteristics and conditions where age, environment and lifestyle are concerned. Just one session is enough for a visible difference, with the eye area looking brighter, less puffy and more refreshed, giving you a well-rested sparkle.
