The concept of skin care is not just limited to using high end, luxurious products or following a routine but involves a lot of other investments too. The term skin care has much more revolutionized off late. And high end skin care is not just limited to celebrities these days. Even commoners are taking the pleasure of indulging into such routine. Getting done the similar skin care treatments like that of the celebrities has become much of the fad these days among the youth. There are many salons and skin clinics in the city who are providing these kind of treatments. One such place is the ABOUT FACE. Few days ago i was called at this place to get the skin treatment done and it was an over whelming experience for me.
Talking about the About Face.. This is one of the premier unisex aesthetics clinic in Mumbai having its branches spread among areas like Bandra, Lokhandwala Complex and Malad. About Face is the clinic providing skin care treatments and solution to the Indian skin. The staff at the clinic are professionals and all the treatments are done under the expert guidance. They have varieties of skin treatment on offer for people with different skin type and need.
I visited their clinic located at 36 Turner Road, Bandra (w) and warmly welcomed by their well trained staff. The in house doctor Ms Pooja inspected and discussed the concerns about my skin and suggested me to go for the Lightening and Hydrating Treatment. I was really skeptical about getting the laser facial done because i hadn’t done it before and to my surprise it was really the most easy going process.
I am the one with combination skin type which tends to be dry and even oily at the same time. I also do have acne issues and that’s why the Lightening and Hydrating Treatment worked wonders for my skin. Let’s have a look at my entire treatment. This treatment covered my skin issues like acne, scars, Pigmentation. Now you all must be wondering what Q Switch Laser Treatment is? How it Works? So below is the answer to all your doubts.
Q SWITCH LASER TREATMENT
Q Switch Laser is used to remove unwanted spots, Pigmentation, sun freckles etc or even removing a tattoo. The laser energy pulse, which is in billionths of a second, releases the pigment into the skin so it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body.
LIGHTENING AND HYDRATING TREATMENT
Dr. Pooja suggested me the Lightening and Hydrating Treatment according to my skin concerns which included the following steps.
My facial started off with cleansing with the help of mild cleanser which helped in getting of the dirt, grime etc.
After cleansing it was the exfoliation which helped in removing dead skin off my face.
- Q SWITCH
our eyes are covered with protective glasses before the Q switch laser begins. Laser can be bit hurting if you are getting it for the first time though its just the tingling sensation as the fine facial hair gets bleached and nothing more than that.
This is the most soothing part of the treatment where skin is hydrated and infused with Vitamin C which works wonders for the skin.
In this step the clogged pores of the face are cleaned and cleared using the mechanical means. This is the most important step as it helps in giving that clear and healthy looking skin.
This Lightening and Hydrating Treatment completed by applying a sheet mask for 30 to 40 minutes.
POST TREATMENT CARE
There are points to be noted post the Q Switch Treatment like Not using Face Wash or any soap on the soap for the next 24 hours. You can use wash your face with water. Using Sunscreen before stepping out is must. If you have a medical history it needs to be shared as it is not advisable to go for laser treatments for people who are suffering from herpes, cold sores or even blood pressure.
This is my after facial picture where you can actually notice the difference after just first session where in my skin looks hydrated, glowing and clear. The entire treatment was such a delight and the most soothing experience. You can notice my sleepy eyes as i almost fell asleep during the masking process. My spots faded by 50%. I actually fell in love with my skin. The results was fantastic as i got too many compliments for my skin and i am really looking forward for my next session with About Face soon.
