Red Carpet Glow: HydraFacial and Complementary Treatments at Face by SM

At Face by SM, we believe in enhancing your natural beauty. Our secret? Science-backed skincare treatments!

The Platinum hydrafacial is our top pick for red carpet worthy skin. It is a treatment that delivers on its promises. It gives a visage so luminous and velvety that it rivals the stars you admire on the big screen.

Hydrafacial is not just a procedure; it’s a transformation for your skin. This medical-grade resurfacing treatment merges cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, lymphatic drainage and hydration. It does this all in a single, blissful session.

Step 1: Cleanse + Peel: Unveil a new layer of skin with gentle exfoliation. As you relax, we work wonders by whisking away dead skin cells. Revealing the fresh, vibrant skin below.

Step 2: Extract and hydrate: Bid farewell to impurities as the painless suction unclogs pores. Then, we add intense moisturisers that quench and nourish your skin, providing hydration that’s deep and refreshing.

Step 3: Detox: Increase lymphatic circulation in your skin. Better lymphatic circulation not only helps move out toxins but also increases blood flow, providing extra oxygen to invigorate the skin. The skin is hydrated and supported, restoring tone and firmness.

Step 4: Fuse + Protect: Your skin is then soaked with antioxidants and peptides. This creates an instant glow. It’s not just skincare, it’s skin health.

Step 5: Rejuvenate and magnify the Glow: Lastly, red and infrared LED Light is applied. This will soothe your skin, reduce redness and stimulate the production of collagen. It also helps your skin to naturally produce vitamin D - leaving your skin feeling soft, smooth and invigorated.

Our Platinum hydrafacial is a star. But, it shines best when paired with our other skincare treatments. Let’s take a look at other skincare services that target specific skincare issues and boost your hydrafacial results.

It changes texture, tone, and tightens. Promoting skin that’s not just rejuvenated but reborn.

Dermal remodeling with Morpheus8 is a treatment that targets the skin's layers. It sculpts and refines your features giving you an age-defying transformation.

Preparation and aftercare are key to your red carpet ready skin. It starts before you step into our sanctuary. To prepare, avoid tanning and excessive sun exposure for at least 72 hours before. Also, avoid exfoliating treatments or retinoids for 48 hours before.

After all salon skincare services, we advise you to avoid direct sun exposure. Ensure you are moisturising your skin and using SPF 50+ sunscreen daily to protect and keep your radiant results.

The skincare treatments at Face by SM are transformative. But, the key to red carpet-ready skin starts with what you put in your body. Nutrition, hydration and exercise are vital to skin health.

Hydrate for harmony:

Water is the essence of life and the lifeblood of clear, dewy skin. Drinking lots of water throughout the day helps flush out toxins. It keeps your skin cells plump and hydrated. Aim for at least 8 glasses a day to maintain that inner glow.

Antioxidant rich foods:

Antioxidants are your skin’s best friend. They fight free radicals, reduce inflammation, and support skin repair. Load up on berries, dark chocolate, and green tea to give your skin an antioxidant boost.

Omega-3 fatty acids:

These essential fats are key to a smooth, luminous complexion. They help keep up the skin’s lipid barrier. This barrier is key for keeping skin hydrated and plump. Eat omega-3s rich foods like oily fish, salmon, flaxseeds, and walnuts.

Vitamin E:

Vitamin E is crucial for skin healing and protection. It works alongside vitamin C to provide a strong defense against sun damage. Nuts and seeds are excellent sources of this skin-loving vitamin.

Minimise sodium and alcohol:

Sodium causes water retention and puffiness. Alcohol dehydrates and dulls the skin. For that red carpet radiance, it’s best to minimise these and instead focus on fresh, whole foods.


It is vital for making collagen and elastin. They keep your skin firm and young. Lean meats, beans, and tofu are great options.

The night before:

On the eve of your red carpet event, avoid heavy, greasy foods. They can cause morning puffiness. Opt for a light meal with plenty of vegetables to ensure you wake up looking refreshed and ready to shine.

Nutrition is powerful. Combine it with advanced skincare treatments at Face by SM and the stage is set for skin that's not just camera-ready, but truly radiant.

Beauty starts from within, and what you eat can be as impactful as the skincare treatments you choose. So, nourish your body with the right foods, and let us take care of the rest. Together, we’ll unveil your most stunning skin yet.

At Face by SM, we’re not just treating your skin, we’re curating an experience and lifestyle that leaves you glowing, inside and out.
