Hanbang Skin Solutions, the latest Korean facial service centre entrenched in Korean traditional massage technique, has opened its first centre at NEX Serangoon.
Established by KC Group, the same people behind the successful cluster of beauty and hair businesses, namely Yakson Singapore, Apgujeong Hair Studio, Myeongdong Hair Studio and Aoyama Hair Studio, the new centre features facial treatments that incorporate its key proprietary GeunmakTM Therapy – a Korean traditional skincare method, which enables customers to achieve firmer facial muscles, as well as a smoother and brighter skin appearance.
Spanning about 1,000 sq ft with eight private treatment rooms bathed in light beige and woody hues, the centre offers customers a calming and relaxing environment. More importantly, customers can expect attentiveness and professional service from the skilled beauticians.
Instead of focusing on the surface layer of the skin, Hanbang’s GeunmakTM Therapy concentrates on the deeper layers by stimulating the fascia; which is a layer of connective tissue made up of collagen that sits beneath the skin to enclose and stabilise the facial muscles. Using the Korean traditional massage technique, this facial therapy helps to relieve tensions between the muscles; boosts blood circulation, and activates the lymph nodes on the face concurrently.
One of the signature treatments at Hanbang Skin Solutions is the Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care. Glycation occurs when one consumes too much sugar, which can weaken the skin and internal organs, as well as retards the skin’s protein, elastin and collagen production. As a result, the skin starts to wrinkle, sag and become dull. In order to prevent premature aging of the skin, Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care treatment infuses essential nutrients into the skin to support the skin’s structure. The proprietary facial massage technique used in the treatment would promote skin elasticity and contour the face through detox and lymphatic drainage, which in turn, firm up the muscles.
Every facial treatment at Hanbang Skin Solutions is specially curated to target different common skin concerns among Singaporean women and men. Before extending any treatment, customers will undergo a skin analysis, which allows the beauty therapist to recommend the most suitable treatment and products for their skin condition in order to achieve optimal facial result. Besides Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care, other available treatments include Anti-Blemish Care, Deep Pore Cleansing Care and Hydro Boost Care, just to name a few.
