When I was informed that I will be heading to 14th Floor where DRx Medispa is located, I knew I was in for some awesome pampering. True enough, I will be trying the much raved facial treatment which has also won Cozycot’s Holy Grail Award and All Time Favourite Facial for Elle Magazine Beauty IT List! The facial is none other than Essential Facial Plus which is DRx’s essential maintenance for good complexion!
My beauty therapist explained each step and I love how detailed she is in making sure I understand what each procedure means and how it will help improved my skin.
Step 1: Cleansing my face to remove makeup and other impurities before we get started.
Step 2: This is to remove all superficial outer layers of the skin and I am surprised by what I see after my beauty therapist showed me after she did half of my face so that I can see the before and after effects after microdermabrasion! The AFTER is definitely smoother compared to the BEFORE! You can also see all the dead skin and dirt on the clean cotton bud!
Step 3: Using an ultrasound device, this step is to remove dead cells and loosen impurities, oil and eliminate comedones in the pores. After ultrasonic cleansing, you will sometimes see flakes of dry skin because of the removal of oil in your skin.
Step 4: The sound of the word Extraction sounds painful already. My nose area is a little dry thus the black and white heads are rather stubborn and takes a bit more effort to squeeze them out aka MORE pain! My beauty therapist said I don’t have a lot of black heads but more of white heads which is a norm. She said mine is still ok and she only extracted less than 5 times and she is done. Thank goodness!
Step 5: Using the same device as Step 3, instead of removing dead cells, we are going to “input” vitamins for using the ultrasonic nutrient delivery, our skin will be able to absorb faster and better! I was given Vitamin C to stimulate collagen and whitening.
Step 6: The last and my favourite step would be applying Therapeutic Mask! The therapist will apply a mask to suit your skin needs and I was given lavender and some other vitamins to help moisturize my skin with water, firming and whitening. It is so comfortable I actually fell asleep!
Skin looking all fresh and glowing! No filter needed for this picture and I went shopping right after my facial sans makeup! Just me and my natural glowing skin.
