More than a year into Covid-19, the concept of self-care is more important than ever. The pandemic has changed the way we work, play, socialise, and not to mention, practise self-care. For some, taking care of oneself can come in the form of exercise or getting enough shut-eye. For others, it goes deeper than that: Building the confidence from within.

Even when the world is in a state of flux, Kim Lim recognises the correlation between looking good and feeling good. Since 2019, the personality and entrepreneur has made her mark on the local beauty and aesthetics industry with a slew of medispas and wellness clinics under her belt. Two in particular – Papilla Haircare and Illumia Therapeutics – are designed to offer effective and science-backed treatment solutions for the modern-day man and woman.

Earlier this month, Papilla Haircare and Illumia Therapeutics made their debut in the heartlands with two new outlet openings at NEX shopping mall. Fronted by celebrity ambassadors Zoe Tay and Cherie Lim, the side-by-side outlets present a unique top-to-bottom concept where customers can undergo the ultimate pampering experience in the name of self-care.

“Covid-19 has been a difficult time for everyone,” says Ms Lim. “We want to bring Illumia and Papilla to the heartlands and closer to customers – and make our effective treatments more accessible.” She adds, “It’s easy to aim for the heartlands, but it’s not as easy to plan a space in these malls. NEX in Serangoon is one of the central locations that is convenient to those who cannot travel to the CBD.”

Hair today, better tomorrow

The new Papilla Haircare outlet at NEX is a swanky yet serene 1, 365 sq ft space that carries a range of unique non-invasive treatment protocols and medically-backed technologies for mild to severe hair loss and scalp conditions. From the privacy of the six consultation and treatment booths, customers can have their hair woes addressed with a variety of treatments to choose from, such as the ScalpElectroporation (S.E.P.) Activator for Hair Loss

Non-invasive and needle-free, the procedure uses varying pulse energy for the transdermal delivery of trichologist-recommended serums into the scalp, thus improving absorption by up to 17 times. In addition, Papilla Haircare’s Cell Nutrition Therapy is one of the first in Singapore to utilise cell-repairing Salmon DNA to boost scalp health.

Founded by a team of aesthetic doctors and supported by plastic surgeons, the medispa’s new outlet at Nex offers a range of non-invasive body treatments.

Whether you’re battling stubborn fat, cellulite or loose skin, Illumia offers various innovative medical technologies and treatment options, including the Cooltech 360 IceSculpt Fat Freezing and Onda Micro Coolwaves from the Slim Science series. The new outlet is also one of the first in Singapore to offer Prime Sculpt PRO.
