Revolutionise Your Skincare Routine With These Non-Invasive Facial Treatments That Actually Work

Everyone longs for youthful and radiant skin and if that is possible without having to go under the knife, it is a win-win. Look no further than the world of non-invasive facial treatments. With advancements in technology, there is now an array of cutting-edge procedures that can transform your complexion without the need for surgery.

From laser facial treatments that stimulate collagen production to HIFU treatments that provide a non-surgical facelift, and the revolutionary Ultherapy that tightens and lifts sagging skin – we have covered the different non-surgical facial treatments you can get done in Hong Kong.

Laser Facials

Laser facial treatments have gained immense popularity among skincare enthusiasts and for good reasons. These cutting-edge treatments use light-based technology to address a wide range of skin concerns. During the procedure, a laser device that emits a precise wavelength of light is projected on the skin to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. These advanced laser facial treatments can help resolve several skin concerns by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening the skin, evening out skin tone, and reducing the appearance of acne scars.

When it comes to non-invasive facial treatments, EMFace is a game changer as it allows individuals undergoing the session to achieve a comparatively sculpted and toned face. The whole procedure typically takes 20 minutes and during this time a device emitting RF (Radio Frequency) and HIFES (High-Intensity Facial Electromagnetic Stimulation) is attached to your face. With the RF rays helping to multiply collagen production and HIFES improving the facial tissues, this non-needle treatment is highly-favoured for offering double the benefits.

HIFU Facial Treatment

Perfect for rejuvenating and revitalising the skin is the HIFU facial treatment. HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) facial treatments have received praise for being the ultimate non-surgical facelift, and it’s not hard to see why. This state-of-the-art procedure employs the power of ultrasound energy that helps to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin. As the energy penetrates deep into the skin’s layers, it stimulates collagen production, resulting in a firmer and more youthful complexion. That is why HIFU is often opted for by people who are concerned about their skin sagging, wrinkles and fine lines. Besides, the treatment needs no downtime or recovery period, thus making this non-invasive treatment a go-to option for those seeking natural-looking and long-lasting results.

  • HIFU V-Shape Face and Neck at the Clinic for HK$12,000 (HK$5,500 for the first session)


Ultherapy is another non-surgical skin-tightening procedure that has revolutionised the cosmetology field by offering a safe and effective way to lift and tighten sagging skin. This innovative treatment uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin, resulting in a toned and sculpted facial feature. Ultherapy targets the underlying layers of skin without causing damage to the surface. As a result, this stimulates a natural healing response, promoting the growth of fresh collagen over time. While Ultherapy is quite similar to HIFU, it uses micro-focused ultrasound rays instead of the high-intensity focused rays used in HIFU.

Jade Rollers – Cosmetic con or skincare secret?

Jade rollers are having a huge moment right now. They’re popping up in conversation, on social feeds, at department stores, beauty shops – almost every celebrity and influencer is using them because who isn’t obsessed with anything that naturally makes the skin taut?

The tiny beauty tools have skyrocketed in popularity, the million dollar question though –  does rubbing them on your face in the name of beauty really work and is it backed by science? 

Keep scrolling, we got all the answers:

What’s the fuss all about and how best to use them?

Face rollers can come in a variety of crystals – jade, rose quartz, tourmaline and amethyst are the most commonly available ones.

Crystals have a natural coolness – no wonder, they find prominence in several aspects of wellness – from cleansing our water to meditation, purifying the vibes or (like Miranda Kerr) putting them in your bra! When it comes to skincare, they might be rage right now but their use is deeply rooted in history. They’ve been used for centuries in the Chinese medicine where the belief was to draw out the negative energy or ‘chi’ and have references in ancient Indian scriptures as well. 

If you haven’t really tried it, then get hold of a crystal roller, freeze it for soothing effect, apply your favourite serum or oil on the face and roll the tool in upward strokes for micro-circulation. The idea is to aid the lymphatic drainage system and help the skin and facial muscles drain toxic fluid buildup, increase the flow of oxygen which reduces puffiness and minimises fine lines. The cooling nature of crystals even after coming in contact with the skin helps to brighten complexion and penetrate the product deeper in your skin. 

The design of the face roller with a larger oval stone and a smaller circular stone helps in getting complete rolling coverage on the face. Below we tell you how to use both the sides for the most effective results.

DIY beauty tool – Here’s what to remember

Besides that zen-like feeling, regular and correct usage of face rollers has legitimate skin benefits – dermatologists say it makes your features pop, skin looks more awake and taut, improves elasticity, tightens pores, helps eliminate toxins and naturally boosts collagen. There’s a host of benefits but if not used correctly, it can do more harm than good. Keep these tips in mind: 

1. Begin with a cleansed face and a cleansed, refrigerated roller. Apply your favourite serum/cream of choice but remember to use a ‘slippery’ product. Some people apply face mask sheets and roll over it for maximum benefits. 

2. Use medium pressure and at least twice a day for visible benefits. 

3. Like with any beauty routine, a face roller is not for all skin types. Some people break out or develop rashes – immediately discontinue its use if it’s not suiting your skin. 

Neck: The oval side of the jade roller is perfect for the long neck – roll it up and down the neck in vertical lines and with uniform pressure. 

Jawline: We love them taut and defined, don’t we? Stay with the oval side of the roller and begin massaging from the centre of your chin towards the earlobe. Repeat for 6 to 7 times on each side and begin to work up the rest of the face. 

Eyes: The smaller stone works well for the eye. Remember to be extra gentle on the eye, roll from the inner point of the eye to the outer area, cover the under eye which sees maximum puffiness and the crow’s feet as well. Roll back and forth for about 8 to 10 times twice a day.
