Visited IDS Orchard earlier this week for my 1st Facial treatment. After all the safety check-in procedure, I was greeted by their friendly Consultant who recommended Cryo Therapeutics Treatment (CTT), noting that my skin was looking dull (probably after several late night this festive season).
|The Treatment Room|
The treatment room was a nice serene white theme, spotlessly cleaned for hygiene and a comfortable experience. Therapist Jessmine was very soft spoken and at the same time very friendly and approachable in answering my questions.
The procedure for the facial:
- Double Cleansing
- HydroD (water dermabrasion including use of multi minerals solution)
- Serum infusions (vitamins & brighteners)
- Seaweed Mask
|Just before starting|
As IDS skincare products are used in the facial, I could immediately recognize the fruity scent of the Refreshing Cleanser. Following that, the gentle Facial Scrub was applied to remove surface impurities.
|First step: Refreshing Cleanser|
|After Scrub, there's an immediate glow already|
In the next step, I experienced an interesting vacuum sensation as the HydroD water dermabrasion machine was used. It was comfortable and I like the feeling that excess dirt is sucked out from my skin!
Next was my ultimate fear - extraction. Jessmine was so quick and gentle, it was over in a jiffy. I was not as uncomfortable as I thought it would be.
|Next vitamin and brightening serum were delivered into my skin through iontophoresis, followed by Cyrotherapy technology (CryoProbe) to soothe and energize my skin.|
Because my skin is sensitive and turn red occasionally, a seaweed mask was used instead of the usual sheet mask. I like the scent of seaweed that immediately felt soothing and comfortable.
I must say this facial session had been the most comfortable one I have ever experienced. I also like that the duration is just nice for a lunch time quick fix!
