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!
