The Phenomenon of Screen Face: 

With our environment and lifestyle being more volatile these days, we’ve relied on technology to bring a sense of normality and routine into our lives. From telecommuting, Zoom hangout sessions with friends and Netflix watch parties, our interaction time with technology has increased to stay connected. However, unknown to us, this increased interaction has taken its toll on our skin and body. The phenomenon of Screen Face is a collection of skincare problems that develop as a result of the increased screen time. Namely, Squint Eyes, Tech Neck and Phone Chin. 

Squint Eyes: 

Long hours spent staring at your screens can cause your eyes involuntarily slip into a squint. Prolonged squinting causes your eyes to be in a crumpled position which leads to fine lines and wrinkles forming around the eye. Additionally, researchers have found that squinting halves the number of blinks per minute, causing dry eyes and blurry vision. With that, you would very likely rub your eyes which isn’t great for the delicate skin around the eyes.   

 Prolonged screen time also exposes your eyes to blue light. This can destroy collagen, cause dark eye circles, weaker skin barrier and increased dryness in the skin.   

Tech Neck: 

This skincare issue shares the same name as the common posture problem. Tech Neck is the forward-leaning of the head to look at devices. This unknowingly repeated action places additional strain on your spine (around five times the gravitational pull), causing shoulder pain and more. Moreover, it can also cause the skin under the neck to fold, deepening necklines. The additional gravitational pull also affects the skin, causing it to sag.   

Pair these issues with the lack of care the neck and décolleté receive in skincare routines you would get a neck and décolleté that may look older than you face. 

Phone Chin: 

Like Tech Neck, Phone Chin is a result of poor posture. Looking down at your phone or computers can cause the skin under the jawline to be compressed. With the average person checking their phone every 10 minutes (amounting to a whopping 96 times a day), this repeated downward gaze eventually causes a once defined jawline and neck to sag.   

Reversing Screen Face: 

Much like most skincare issues, reversing Screen Face is possible with the help of advanced technology combined with traditional craftsmanship encouraging the skin’s natural restorative properties. Introducing, the trinity of treatments that will reverse the effects of screen time, revealing the beauty unplugged.   

Multi-Spectrum Intensive Eye Treatment 

Created to combat Squint Eyes in 45 minutes, the Multi-Sprectrum Intensive Eye Treatment effectively:  

  • Reduces fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark eye circles   
  • Rebuilds collagen for plump eyes and firmer skin  
  • Lifts droopy eyelids 

Step 1: Double Cleansing & Exfoliation 

The treatment begins with a Porcelain staple – double cleansing – to free the skin of impurities while nourishing it with potent ingredients and antioxidants. Followed by a gentle exfoliation using Porcelain’s enzyme-based gel exfoliator – the Natural Skin Refiner – to lighten fine lines and brighten the eye area. 

Step 2: Eye Lift Massage 

A firm lifting massage is performed to aid the lymphatic drainage of fluids – to depuff and lift the eye area.  

Step 3:  Ultrasound with RevitalEyes Concentrate & HA+ Hydrating Serum 

To further boost the efficacy of the lifting massage, ultrasound technology is used to stimulate collagen production and strengthen capillary walls of blood vessels under the eyes to restore suppleness to the area. Coupled with the multi-faceted formulation of the HA+ Hydrating Serum and scientifically advanced ingredients of the RevitalEyes Concentrate restores youthfulness to the skin while reinvigorating the skin’s natural restorative properties.   

Step 4: Mask with LED Light Therapy 

Masking is a must-have. Porcelain’s Multipeptide Silk Eye Mask is then applied along with LED light therapy to enhance the penetration of the mask’s active ingredients around the eyes.   

Step 5: Head Massage 

The treatment ends with a head massage for the ultimate indulgence. Emerge with refreshed eyes and relaxed mind. 

Duo-Intensive Neck & Décolleté Treatment 

The best accessory is an elegant neck with a flawless décolleté to match. However, Tech Neck stands in the way of that. Thus, the Duo-Intensive Neck & Décolleté Treatment effectively:  

  • Reduces fine lines and necklines  
  • Visibly brightens and firms the skin around neck and décolleté  
  • Even skin tone along neck and décolleté 

Step 1: Double Cleansing & Deep Peel 

The treatment begins with a Porcelain staple – double cleansing – to free the skin of impurities while nourishing it with potent ingredients and antioxidants. To reveal brighter, youthful skin, a deep peel made from a balanced blend of Glycolic Acid and Trichloroacetic Acid is applied to exfoliate the neck and décolleté comfortably. 

Step 2: Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatment 

With medical-grade machinery, a selection of pulsating lights is administered for precise and targeted treatment. Gentle flicks of light stimulate the skin’s collagen production in the dermis layer. Simultaneously, pigmentation is lightened and skin tone is evened, leaving behind a plump and radiant neck and décolleté. 

Step 3:  Detox Lymphatic Drainage Massage 

To further enhance the skin’s natural youthfulness, Porcelain’s signature lymphatic massage is conducted. The in-house developed technique reduces water retention and boosts the drainage of toxins for healthier skin upon an elegant neck. 

Step 4: Custom Blended Mask 

A premium custom-blended mask targeted at your specific skin needs is applied as you slowly fall into a relaxing slumber. 

Step 5: Head Massage 

The treatment ends with a soothing head massage that is guaranteed to deepen your sleep, leaving you reinvigorated when you awake. 

Proionic Multi-Sculpting Chin & Neck Treatment 

While adjusting the way you look at your devices can reduce the presence of Phone Chin, allow the Proionic Multi-Sculpting Chin & Neck Treatment to do the heavy lifting and restore a sharper visage with a sleek neck to match.  It effectively:  

  • Reduces the appearance of a double chin  
  • Tightens sagging skin under chin and neck  
  • Stimulates collagen production for taut skin over time 

Step 1: Double Cleansing  

Likewise, the treatment starts with a double cleanse to free the skin of impurities while nourishing it with potent ingredients and antioxidants.  

Step 2: Carbon Dioxide Treatment 

A carbon dioxide sheet mask and topical gel are applied, triggering the BOHR Effect – a process that releases a rush of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area. The BOHR Effect results in stimulating cell renewal and collagen production. Witness an immediate V-shape facial contour with bright skin to match. The cell renewal and collagen production lay the foundation for healthier skin in future. 

Step 3:  Proionic Neck Lift & Detox Lymphatic Drainage Massage 

Using a patented, 448kHz long wave radio frequency paired with Porcelain’s signature lymphatic massage helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production while draining toxins for an instant and long-term anti-ageing effects. Results are immediate with sustained tautness around the chin and neck. 

Step 4: Custom Blended Mask 

A premium custom-blended mask targeted at your specific skin needs is applied. 

Step 5: Head Massage 

The treatment ends with a soothing head massage that is guaranteed to deepen your sleep, leaving you reinvigorated when you awake.
