Made to measure


WHAT IS A FRAME® MADE-TO-MEASURE KIT AND WHY USE IT INSTEAD OF A STANDARD KIT:

The needs of your skin vary not only with age but also with the change of seasons, of life- style, and your environment. The choice of skincare products is often influenced by factors that do not meet the real needs of your skin, though.

So, usually, an over-the-counter, generic, anti-wrinkle or hydrating cream may not be enough to effectively prevent and treat the signs of aging. The made-to-measure FRAME® products line was created to give a scientific and specialized personal answer to the needs of your skin and represent a revolution in the field of cosmetics and cosmeceuticals thanks to its innovative approach to skin care.

Individualized creams and serums are created one at a time, and they are specifically customized for each of our clients by combining an innovative manufacturing process with our unique made-to-measure system. The outcome is a product that perfectly meets the needs of your skin, just like a custom-tailored suit.

Our pioneering vision radically sets it apart from mass cosmetic production. Each product is uniquely crafted using an algorithm that cross-checks scientific skin analysis with the individual variables which affect one’s skin health. That is precisely why FRAME® creams and serums contain exclusively what your skin really needs, in the exact concentration.

Every product is created based on the information we receive from you, obtained through our simple on-line questionnaire related to your lifestyle and then completed with the information about the levels of the three principal characteristics of the skin (dryness, oiliness and wrinkles) obtained with the device that we provide you (D1– Bio-Impedance Skin Analyzer).

Our team of experts will analyze the data and will identify the active ingredients best suited for your skin. The final result is the creation of a FRAME® kit adapted to respond to your specific biological needs. Each product contains the optimum concentration of the purest active ingredients for an effective and personalized pro-aging program.

Personalized kits cost 50% higher than the respective standard kit, i.e. customized P kit will cost HKD 14,400, M kit will cost HKD 18,900, R kit will cost HKD 22,500. While we are happy to help you resolve any issue related to your customized kit, due to the personal nature of the products, all made-to-measure kits are non-refundable.

As an effective beauty treatment must continue to evolve with your skin, FRAME® will continue to follow you step by step, season by season, adapting the products you will use to your effective needs. Customers who have particular skin problems; transgender people and those who have had plastic, reconstructive or aesthetic surgeries, please mention on the questionnaire.

In addition to replying to our on-line questionnaire, a member of our scientific advisory board will get in touch with you by e-mail and will ask you some more details before proceeding with the creation of your tailor-made skincare programme. Your status, environment and behaviours significantly affect your health and the quality of your skin. By answering these questions you help us identify which elements can be modified to optimize the effectiveness of your customized treatment.

Now look at your skin to identify your skin type: you will help us understand better what active ingredients to use to prepare your personalised kit. You can check your skin type following a few simple steps: thoroughly cleanse skin with cotton wool and cleansing milk. Rinse your face thoroughly in order to remove any residues. Leave your skin alone for 15 minutes (do not apply any creams or toners; do not drink coffee or alcohol and do not smoke).

Phototype

With a few simple questions we'll try to define your skin phototype to evaluate your genetic sensitivity regarding skin damage and sun exposure. For each category, indicate the option that fits you best.

EYE COLOUR:

Pale blue, light grey or light greenBlue, grey or greenHazel or light brownDark brownVery dark brown

HAIR COLOUR:

Here you should consider your natural hair colour in early adulthood (before it may have turned grey).
Red, strawberry blond or light blondBlondDark blond, sandy brown or light brownDark brownBlack

SKIN COLOUR:

FRECKLES:

People with fairer skin tend to have more freckles. Think about how many you have on areas of your skin protected from the sun.

REACTION TO SUN EXPOSURE:

Skin properties

Individual skin type may change due to external (e.g. climate, skin care) and internal (e.g. medications, hormonal changes) factors over time – it is not static. However, please read the text below, and try to indicate which of this description you consider to be your skin type.

NORMAL SKIN: Displays a smooth texture and a rosy, clear surface, with fine pores. There are no visible blemishes, greasy patches or flaky areas. Sebum production, moisture content, keratinisation and desquamation are well-balanced. Normal skin is often found in young personsDRY SKIN: Is characterised by a lack of moisture in its corneous layer, resulting in tightness and even flaking. The skin appears dull, especially on the cheeks and around the eyes. It may lack elasticity, with accentuated fine lines and wrinkles. In more severe cases, itching and burning may occur. Extremely dry skin shows signs of cracking and fissuring. Dry skin can be genetically determined or triggered by factors such as climate, cosmetics and medications. It can be a natural consequence of the ageing process, as sebum production slows downOILY SKIN: Is characterised by an increased amount of lipids on the skin surface due to overactive sebaceous glands. It is shiny and thick, often with enlarged pores. Oily skin is prone to blackheads and other blemishes. It occurs more often in men than in women, and it predominantly affects adolescents and younger personsCOMBINATION SKIN: Is rather dry in some parts of the body and oily in other localisations. Mixed facial skin tends toward dryness on the cheeks and around the eyes while being oily in the t-zone (nose, forehead, chin). The dry parts and the oily parts require different skin care regimens. This skin type is very commonSENSITIVE SKIN: Is not a skin type, but rather a symptom caused by various factors. Patients tend to describe their skin as “sensitive” if it frequently reacts with redness, itching, burning or dryness to the topical application of skin care products. Causes for this condition may be an underlying skin disorder, allergies, contact to irritants in certain products, or the use of inadequate, not skin type-adjusted products. Most commonly, the facial skin is involvedMATURE SKIN: With age, the skin’s sebum production slows down, often leading to increased dryness, an accentuation of fine lines and wrinkles, and flakiness. The skin may appear dull, and finally start to itch and burn. In women, the shifting balance of hormones with menopause causes various changes. As their skin thins considerably after the menopause, women’s skin may become more sensitive to sun damage and weather extremes. Another problem is hyperpigmentation, especially in persons with a long history of sun exposure. While it is important to meet the needs of mature skin, it is necessary to keep in mind that not all persons over 40 experience the above-mentioned problems. Therefore different skin care regimens may be necessary in persons of the same age according to their skin type

Skin characterisics

Your biological age does not always correspond to your skin's age. You can be 30 years old but look 40, or 50 years old but not seem any older than 35. It all depends on what condition your skin is in and how you care for and nourish your skin daily. For this reason, it is important that you recognise the external signs of skin ageing in order to be able to counter them effectively. Indicate the option that fits you best.
