If you’re a first-timer at getting any sort of aesthetic treatment or facials done, the thought of it can get a little… daunting to say the least. Where does one even begin? Are you really just lying down in a cold, white, sterile room leaving your face and body in the hands of a perfect stranger? Is the front desk going to be unflattering, overhead lights fronted by a nonchalant receptionist?
Modern aesthetic clinics
Well, we’re here to tell you that clinics like that are a thing of the past, and most clinics now pay the utmost attention not only to the technology and efficiency of their treatments but the look and feel of their clinic interiors. After all, getting any sort of treatment done is a form of luxury, and with luxury, the experience and the ambience matter just, if not as much, as the actual product you’re selling.
While treatment efficacy is important, being taken care of in a place that is aesthetically pleasing might put you in an even better frame of mind to enjoy the experience. Here are some clinics in Singapore worth checking out.
1. Epion Clinic
With its iconic black and white striped marble flooring, gold panels, plush velvet furnishings and art deco fixtures, one might have thought they’d step back in time into a 1920’s mansion from The Great Gatsby at the Epion Clinic.
Why you'll love it: When it came to the design of the place, according to founder Dr Melvin Tan, he wanted the surroundings to mirror their approach to aesthetic finesse and efficacy, and be a chic, stylish space that one can retreat comfortably to and emerge feeling like a better version of themselves. This warm and inviting space will surely make you feel like you’re at an upscale hotel that you’ll never want to check out of.
