Admit it – regardless of how beauty is interpreted, a glowing skin is still the pride and joy. Let it be for the women or men, I am certain you will sense an overwhelming feeling of happiness whenever people compliment your looks. By right, there is nothing wrong with being proud of your skin because it says that you care and you maintain your skin well. Definitely I won’t deny, of course I love it, if not for looking a few years younger but mainly for my clear skin. While I do have a choice of dolling-up with layers of make-up which is rare but once a while I do, I prefer a presentable complexion defended with the daily beauty regime and the weekly home facials. However, despite applying sun block, quite a thing actually to totally prevent age spots and sun spots since I sweat profusely when I am cooking or gardening. Blame it on the hormonal imbalances, these spots are not really prominent, but instead of allowing them to worsen or trying out new skin care products, I opted to restore-rejuvenate my skin at the good hands of a professional skin doctor.
Arriving at the clinically clean and comfortable Klinik Dr Christina Chea with prior appointment (please do to avoid waiting time), Dr Chea analyzed my skin and recommended the microdermabrasion treatment which comes in a package with oxygen therapy/infusion and a face mask. Also, since my skin lacked hydration, the “Prism” treatment was included to lock in water and humectant.
I was then ushered to the treatment room where my face was thoroughly cleansed before the microdermabrasion - the application of tiny crystals to buff away the surface layer of skin and usually done to the face but can also be done on the arms, elbows, back, or feet to smooth and to remove skin’s visible imperfections, like blemishes, mild acne scarring, sun damage and fine lines. Suitable for all skin types, no preparation is needed for this comfortable and painless treatment for the instant results and to improve absorption of skin care products. Erasing epidermal layers at varying depths in a controlled manner, microdermabrasion mechanically alters the epidermis and invigorates cell renewal to create a healthy-balanced skin surface. Its patented dual control system and adjustable applicator head simultaneously suctions and distributes a jet of fine crystals across the skin for also the production of collagen and for mild extractions to help decongested skin.
Next, to retain skin's firmness, smooth out fine lines and to prevail redness should it occur, my face was cleanse again to receive the gentle splashes of the cooling and wonderful fresh fountain water like oxygen therapy/infusion into my pores. Thereafter, a purifying and deep cleansing cream mask was applied and washed off after 20 minutes.
Finally, to whiten and hydrate, the lontophoresis/primcare treatment was introduce by using soft electric currents to transport the Vitamin C applied on my face and into the deeper layers of my skin. In my case, since I have done the microdermabrasion earlier to remove dead skin and impurities with deep pore cleansing, the ultrasonic cleansing or peeling was skipped. It replaces the microdermabrasion for those with very sensitive skin, very dry skin or if you prefer a much more gentle cleansing. For me, the purpose of primcare treatment was to further harness skin's texture with moisture, hydration and smooth out fine wrinkles.
Notwithstanding there is no downtime, no side effects and results are noticeable after the first microdermabrasion treatment or prism treatment, a smooth and even-toned appearance is revealed within the next 3 to 4 days once the remaining accumulated dead cells slowly and naturally comes off. Also remember to continue with your daily beauty care, including sunblock to protect the skin from ultra violet rays. So, all you beautiful people, do care for your skin and in the next post, I will be back with the highly effective, safe, chemical free, no artificial ingredients or harsh salts, completely organic and no scratching Medlife C6 QS ND:YAG Laser treatment to treat a variety of skin condition.
