It has been a month since I started on the skincare products by IDS Skincare (read Part 1 of my review here) I've been told by Dr Michelle Wong that I’m likely to experience some break outs as the products help to purge the underlying blackheads and impurities. Well even though that was expected, I was quite concerned with the additional spots, which unfortunately I picked at. SOBS.
Apart from that, the dry skin condition has eased with the Recovery Serum and Moisture Boost combination! No more annoying flaky spots!
When I headed back for my review, Dr Michelle Wong assured that my skin was fine and that the Hydro-Therapeutics Treatment (HTT) ($198+) would help with clearing my skin further. This treatment works through various levels of deep cleansing to remove accumulated dirt, product build-up and clogged sebum that no regular cleanser can. It also helps with lines and wrinkles too!
The 60 minute facial is suitable for all skin types and leaves you with clearer and brighter skin. Check this out if you don't believe.
The facial started with double cleansing followed by HydroD, a water dermabrasion which uses a multi minerals solution to remove surface impurities. Though dermabrasion may sound invasion, but you'd only feel a light suction on your skin. A deeper cleansing using ultrasound was next and you'd experience some light tingling zapping sensation (not painful at all). Then the usual extractions. I was told that my skin condition was pretty ok so that provided some assurance to my concerns.
After the cleansing, Vitamin C is applied and with the help of the ultrasound device, you could expect better penetration of the serum. Lastly, a whitening mask was prescribed based on my skin condition.
The HTT treatment was very soothing and i was surprised at how bright my skin was immediately after. Will certainly do this facial again.
