The NOVU Face Masks

October 2017

NOVU, the first fully integrated medical aesthetic organisation in Singapore, has launched the newest addition to its existing Elemental and Enliven skincare lines, the NOVU face masks; lightweight, specially designed to target different skin issues and yet gentle enough for all skin types.

NOVU has been improving people’s skin since 2011 when it was still known as PPP and has performed over 6 million protocols throughout the globe in various skin conditions and in the process has developed safe and effective treatments that address different skin concerns.

With its 360 Solution, a proprietary system that categorizes skin conditions under 3C’s: Color, Consistency and Contour, NOVU offers effective solutions to treat skin issues by applying revolutionary technologies with safe treatment protocols and skincare products such as the NOVU Masks.

Features of NOVU new masks:

  • Time Saving – Application time is only 5 to 8 minutes, which saves 1/3 of the application time as compared to other masks.
  • Elastic & Super Thin – NOVU mask’s almost transparent, super lightweight material is created by a special weaving technology, with elastic features. The mask fits more comfortably than other mask materials.
  • Perfect Fit: Fits perfectly onto face and does not slip off easily.
  • Highly Moisturizing & Hydrating – The serum content is 14 times of the fibre itself.

NOVU Masks

Instructions for use:

  1. Begin with freshly cleansed skin for optimal results.
  2. Unfold the mask and place it on your face, aligning the holes with your eyes, nose and mouth.
  3. Peel away the backing and smooth the mask onto skin; feel the absorption of the nutrients working as the mask clings to your skin.
  4. Remove the mask after 5-8 minutes; gently massage the remaining serum into the skin.
  5. Do not rinse.

Bare your face with NOVU’s Glazo Peel Laser

We were all born with nearly perfect skin; soft, smooth and supple. However, as time passes, acne break outs, sun damage and discolouration become common problems leading to uneven skin tone and discolouration on the face.

Prefer to have smooth and radiant skin naturally or fake it with foundation? Skip the hassle of putting on layers of foundation just to achieve that even skin tone, NOVU Medical Aesthetic Clinic’s latest Glazo Peel Laser can help you achieve it.

Using its in-house specially formulated Glazo paste (Carbon + Kakadu Plum extract); rich in anti-pigmentary, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, the Glazo Peel Laser cleanses, exfoliates and rejuvenates the skin with minimal-to-zero downtime.

Kakadu Plum, also known as Gubinge, Billygoat plum or Murunga is a small green superfruit native to Australia. It has the highest Vitamin C content and measures up to 100 times more compared to an orange. Its undoubtable capability to brighten the skin and regulate the formation of melanin earns its fame as a power ingredient on the rise found in skincare products.

Benefits of Kakadu Plum

  • Antioxidant – L Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
  • Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory (Phenolic Acid)
  • Anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antiviral (Gallic Acid)
  • Elasticity and suppleness (Ellagic Acid)

Prior to performing the laser, NOVU’s GLAZO paste; rich in anti-pigmentary, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties is applied to the skin. On contact with the laser pulses, the Kakadu plum extract is broken down into nano granules which effectively penetrates through the skin and is absorbed in the dermis. The treatment destroys dead skin cells, contaminants, acne, regulates sebum oil, shrink pores, and eradicates pigments on the skin.

Acne reduction is achieved via thermal effect of carbon particles surrounding the sebaceous glands. This procedure also stimulates collagen production and cell regeneration which helps shrink superficial scars.

The Glazo Peel Laser is highly recommended for oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores and acne. One who has dull skin, pigmented skin and aged-matured skin with wrinkles is not an exception.

Duration: 15 minutes

Results: Reduced in pore size, inflammatory acne, acne scars/marks, and a smoother, brighter and more refined skin texture.

Cost: S$98 for 1st trial session, S$108 for ala care session, S$488 for package of 5 sessions, S$988 for package of 12 sessions, and S$1988 for package of 26 sessions

The Glazo Peel is available at the following NOVU Medical Aesthetic Clinics and PPP by NOVU clinics; JEM, Jurong Point, Raffles City and NEX.

Get Youthful Skin and a Shapelier Face with Botox

Wrinkles and fine lines on the face are said to be signs of a life well lived. They are the signs that you have laughed at all the good things and perhaps expressed a little disappointment at the things that did not go so well. However, one thing is for sure, these lines do not make your appearance any better. They make you look aged and tired.

Everyone desires radiant, smooth and young looking skin, as well as a contoured face. The elixir of youth has not been discovered yet but fortune is upon us because there are some things you can do in order to keep the signs of aging at bay and have a shapelier face.

Botox is an injectable treatment that is derived from a purified protein. It was first used in 1984 and since then it has been successfully administered in more than 11 million patients.  It has gained quite the popularity in recent years because of its use in medical aesthetics.

Botox is a neuromodulator that is used for lines and wrinkles, which are the result of repetitive motion. These lines often appear in the upper region of the face such as the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eye area.   By reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines on the face, you will look younger and refreshed. Botox also improves the skin’s consistency by providing superficial tightening for a smoother skin surface.

For a more contoured face without going under the knife, Botox is the solution. The masseter muscle is located in the jaw and used for chewing, and when overdeveloped results in what is commonly called square jaw. However, a square jaw is not very attractive; it is considered severe and masculine. Botox can help in jaw reduction and beautifully contour the lower face to create a slim, feminine jaw without the surgery and the risks that come with it, with minimal pain and bruising, and with quick recovery.

A consultation with our NOVU doctor is a must before getting Botox injections. With proper diagnosis done by our experts, the correct dosage will be administered so you can have a more youthful look and a shapelier face.

 

Duration: 20 minutes (one portion), 45 minutes (full face)

Results: Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a more contoured face

Cost: $560 for Botox for Jawline, $280 for Botox for Forehead, Glabellar Lines and Crow’s Feet (Minimum 2 areas)

Banish Those Bags of Yours

It is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. The skin around the eyes would then be its frame. Do you know that this delicate frame is about 10 times thinner than the skin on the face, and it ages faster than the rest of the skin?

Our eyes work constantly throughout the day, on average, one blinks about 28,000 times a day, moving all 22 muscles and the delicate skin around the eyes. There are many factors that may contribute to under-eye issues such as dark circles, puffiness and under-eye bags, making you look tired and older than you really are.

To list a few factors would be:

  • Water retention, caused by either hormonal fluctuation, diets high in salt and/or excessive alcohol consumption
  • Stress, fatigue and inadequate quality sleep; causing poor microcirculation around the eyes
  • Sinus or allergies; causing temporary puffiness and swelling
  • Hereditary; eye bags is simply a trait in the family genetics
  • Aging, as one ages, the facial muscles, collagen and skin elasticity weakens; causing the skin around the eyes to sag and droop, forming pockets. Once our fat cells gradually seep into the under eye pockets, they form permanent eye bags.

There are many circulated remedies that may aid in reducing the puffiness or swelling around the eye region. Some common quick fixes include slapping on cold compress, sliced cucumbers or cooled used tea bags, taking medication for sinus and/or allergies, and improving daily lifestyle by cutting down on salt intake, consuming less diuretic beverages such as coffee and alcohol, and exercising regularly.

However, for eye bags caused by heredity, aging and long term inadequate rest, a non-surgical, non-injectable solution for eye bag reduction is with laser treatments.

As one ages, fine lines and wrinkles appears around the eyes. By rubbing the eyes vigorously when one wakes up or feels tired or when it is irritated or dry, smoking, and omitting the application of eye gel or cream to moisturize the skin around the eyes furthers abuses the skin around the eyes, hastening the process of fine lines and wrinkles appearance.

NOVU Medical Aesthetic Clinic introduces its latest brilliant skincare innovation, the Eye Depuffer Laser with Eye Energizing Tonic. Say goodbye to tired looking eyes and brighten them up this instant!

The Eye Depuffer Laser with Eye Energizing Tonic is a non-ablative procedure where NOVU doctors gently warm the under eye and the surrounding region with temperature controlled Eye Depuffer laser during the treatment. The warm sensation known as the “bulk-heating” technology, passes beneath the epidermis and dermis layer of the skin, and concentrates all the energy down to the subcutaneous fat layer.

The Eye Depuffer laser at the optimal heating temperature safely, and gently:

  • breaks down the fat cells in the eye bags, which will be removed via metabolic excretion of the body
  • stimulates production of new collagen and elastin under the skin, and compacting them to rebuild the skin structure around the eyes, making it feel firmer and tighter immediately
  • as the skin around the eyes tightens and increases in volume, it naturally fills out fine lines and wrinkles around the eye region

Immediately after the Eye Depuffer laser procedure, Eye Energizing Tonic strips will be left on for up to 10 minutes. The strips are soaked in NOVU’s Eye Energizing Tonic prior to application. This in-house specially formulated tonic is powered by active ingredients that aids to soothe, lift and hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes, resulting in brighter and more energetic looking eyes.

Active Ingredients in Eye Energizing Tonic Strips:

  • Damask Rose Placenta; packed with Vitamins A,C,D and E and antioxidant properties that encourages cell regeneration, neutralizes free radicals that causes skin damage, and prevents premature aging
  • Bulgarian Rose Stem Cell Extract; tightens and brightens the skin
  • EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor); softens and improves skin texture, and stimulates cell regeneration
  • FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factor); improves skin elasticity and making it tighter
  • IGT (Insulin-like Growth Factor); adds firmness, regenerates collagen and hyaluronic acid

Duration: 20 minutes

Results: Reduction of puffiness, eye bags and wrinkles under the eyes.

Cost: S$85 for 1st trial session, S$128 for ala care session, S$588 for package of 6 sessions, and S$998 for package of 12 sessions

The Eye Depuffer Laser with Eye Energizing Tonic is available at the following NOVU Medical Aesthetic Clinics and PPP by NOVU clinics; JEM, Jurong Point, Raffles City, Bishan and NEX.
