It's not very often that I start off a post with my bare face. Yes, I'm not wearing any makeup here whatsoever and I actually went out with this face.. All thanks to the Skin Rejuvenation Laser Facial that I did at My Skin Gym! PS: This medical aesthetic clinic has now become my favourite place to go for laser facials!
If you're not familiar with My Skin Gym & Medical Spa, I suggest you read my first ever laser experience HERE and HERE. I fell in love with the Carbon Peel Treatment the first time I did it because of how clean it made my skin feel! I even had friends messaging me to ask about the procedure and results after they read about it and saw the effects on my blog. Anyway, before any laser procedures started, the beauty assistants would help me to cleanse my face and remove all traces of makeup.
A little insight about the Signature Skin Rejuvenation Laser Facial before we go on. It is a new and improved version of the previous Duo Laser Treatment which required 2 laser machines (Erbium & ND Yag) to do the treatment. However, this new treatment only requires ND Yag because typically, the other machine is just for removing the dead skin cells on the external layer of the skin only. This medically crafted laser facial that adopts the latest technology from Korea & US has been tested on over thousands of patients in Singapore and is so gentle yet effective that you can even get it done EVERYDAY! That is, if you have time to drop by the clinic everyday, of course :p It is a fast & safe treatment with no downtime and is comfortable and credible, as you are putting your face in the hands of a certified medical professional. I will explain more about the benefits of this treatment as we move along.
I'm glad to say that this treatment has a little bit of carbon peel incorporated into it too! After cleansing, the next step is to apply carbon onto the T-zone and let it sit for 20 minutes. The carbon will help to control oil, kill bacteria-causing acne, reduce inflammation and cleanse the pores.
Next, the doctor will administer the laser procedure. There will be 3 rounds of laser throughout the procedure, each with a different purpose and to target a different skin layer. The first laser by the ND Yag machine is to remove any external bumps & unevenness on the skin. Did I mention that ND Yag is great for reducing hyper-pigmentation & photo-aging problems too?
The 2nd round of laser is then turned on to a higher level as it needs to be stronger to remove the carbon layer. A vacuum is turned on nearby (I can't see haha sorry) to suck away the smell and carbon residue in the air. Fyi, there will be a slight burning stench on top of the carbon smell. The smellier the carbon, it means the more dirt there is inside your skin, OMG!
Finally, it's time for the third laser. This round, the laser is slowly increased to level 3 to target deeper into the skin's epidermis layer. It helps to break down melanin, reduce enlarged pores while assisting in deep pore cleansing at the same time. Over time, regular treatment will give you clearer, more radiant skin with reduced appearance of acne, fine lines, wrinkles and restore firmer skin.
The result? Fairer, brighter, toned and smoother skin after each treatment! As usual, I can feel my skin feeling REALLY clean after the laser treatment. Can't believe it all only took 15 minutes with no downtime at all! It's great for a quick fix before attending events etc, don't you think? If you asked me if it hurt at all, I can only say that if you can survive a tiny ant bite, you can definitely survive the laser treatment. It can be quite intimidating the first time but once you tried it, you'll never look back haha. Can you spot the difference in these before & after photos? For one, redness & acne bumps in my skin have reduced and the whiteheads & blackheads on my nose is gone as well!
What I love:
- Fast treatment with no downtime at all
- Attentive beauty assistants and doctor who explains each step of the procedure to you carefully so you do not feel alarmed
- Skin feels squeaky clean, fairer and brighter after each laser treatment that I feel confident enough to go out even without makeup!
What I don't:
- Not the most affordable treatment ever, but it is worth it
- Not sure if this is really a cons, but I would say this treatment is more suitable for more mature skin as you can see more obvious results
Did I mention that My Skin Gym carries their own line of hydrating skin care too? These are formulated to suit their patient's skin and won't aggravate the skin even after laser procedures. For best results, it is advisable to do the Signature Skin Rejuvenation Laser Facial at least three times a week and pair it with My Skin Gym's skincare range. I would advice you to drop by or call My Skin Gym to enquire about the latest promotional package. If you are keen to try out this treatment for yourself, you can try it for only RM49 for the first trial! You have nothing to lose, and don't say I never share ok!
