As a 40+ er with visibly aging skin I’m always keen to try out new products and facials that delay the aging process. Atache Skincare products promise to do just that and I was invited to come to Allure Beauty at City Square Mall to try out their unique facial and skincare line.
The salon is located in the middle of the mall and looks modern and pleasant. I got a warm reception and the treatment room itself was small but pleasant. Before going there though, my therapist, Grace, examined my skin and told me a little bit more about the uniqueness of Atache Scientific Cosmetic.
Its key ingredient is Vitasource™. It acts as a promoter of Telomerase production, delays aging and recoups characteristics of young cells. It protects chromosome telomeres and prolongs the number of cell divisions. It also protects and repairs the DNA, thereby improving cell function. On the epidermis itself, it helps to maintain perfect moisturisation and nourishment.
Atache has coupled its products with a unique massage called the Geish Anma massage. This massage uses an Asian technique that combines aesthetic protocol with a reflexology massage and movements of fascia. The aim is to tone up facial muscles in a natural way, while at the same time reducing wrinkles and expression lines.The massage feels very relaxing and Grace showed me the difference in my face before and after the massage (she did my left side first and then showed me the difference). The difference was definitely noticeable.
During the treatment you also get a double mask and this is what it looks like (see below). It was fun for me to see this picture, as you have no idea what you look like when you are lying there. I had no idea the masque was so thick and dark. This mask is layered onto another mask and some thin tissue, so don’t worry, you will not get any of that stuff into your mouth or eyes. The treatment was relaxing and my skin felt smooth and hydrated after the treatment and it glowed. My hair on the other hand was a complete mess!
Here are just a few of the products in their range.
For day use there is Precision touch. Based on 3D technology which helps both skin volume and uniformity, it combines 3 of the most effective wrinkle filling ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid Microspheres, Liftonin Xpress and Soft Focus light reflections. These ingredients help to smooth out any wrinkles. The cream also includes vitamin E which protects the skin against free radicals (which cause the skin to age). Price is $185.
Cellular Regeneration Day with SPF 15
Also for day is this all round anti-aging treatment. Its two most powerful ingredients include Vitasource™ (as explained above) and Aqua Osmoline™. The latter helps control the skin’s water flow, ensuring optimum skin moisturisation. This cream will result in brighter, more moisturized skin. Price is $175.
Advanced Repair cream
Finally for night is this all-round anti-aging treatment. It contains a blend of Vitasource™ and Soya Glycopeptides, which bring back the suppleness and smoothness of young skin. Price is $265.
This was a very interesting treatment in a nice salon. Therapist, treatment rooms, temperature and atmosphere were all good. The products look promising with the precision touch having an instant effect on your wrinkles. I’m currently using their Cellular Regeneration Day cream with spf 15, which is a very pleasant cream that feels soft and smooth on the skin. If you are looking for a facial with a difference the Geish Anma massage and facial with Atache products is certainly worth a try.
