AGNES Treatment to Get Rid of Stubborn Acne and Pimples

Author: Alexius Chua

Being a guy used to be easy. Men were known to keep everything to the basics, just one hard soap is enough to scrub from head to toe, without a care in the world, much less on appearance.

But not now.

I’ve got many skin problems, and one that irks me the most is pesky acne and pimples. It is a skin condition triggered by overactive oil glands. When pores are clogged with too much sebum produced by the oil glands, the pimple pops up.

Have tried a million different things – changing different pimple creams and facial wash, and visited polyclinic for that birth control pill prescription twice, with little or temporary success. What results is dry, sensitive skin and scarring on certain areas. I thought that every option to eradicate this problem has been tried and failed, there is nothing I can do except to watch my diet and hope for the best.

But I was wrong. The solution couldn’t be simpler.

AGNES Treatment for Acne

Thankfully, Dr Ryan Tan at Aesthetics Central Clinic at Clarke Quay Central is here to the rescue. Dr Ryan suggested AGNES Treatment for my first acne treatment. It is a permanent, non-surgical solution to treat my stubborn acne.

Separated to 2 days, on the first day Dr Ryan will use a special device called AGNES to administer radiofrequency energy precisely on specific problem areas. This tiny burst of electrical energy will cause the affected oil gland to shrink and produce less oil.

On the second day, acne extraction by the beautician.

AGNES Treatment for Acne

First, Dr Ryan demarcates the acne areas – an important step as there are 100,000 good, normal functioning pores, and only about 300-500 diseased damaged pores that are always getting inflamed and infected repeatedly. Dr Ryan inspects at every single pores and selectively selects the problem causing ones for treatment.

Next is the numbing shots, which to me felt like ant bites. Okai to be honest there are jabs on certain areas that woke me up from slumber (Yes I am that tired lol), but his assistant used a vibrator-like thingy to numb area while Dr Ryan administer the injection, making it much less painful.

AGNES Treatment for Acne
The same 1% of the pores on the face are responsible for causing 90% of the acne

Then comes the AGNES treatment, which felt like a breathe of sunshine as compared to the previous numbing shots. Its amazing considering its a special needles but there’s no feeling at all, perhaps partly thanks to the numbing shot taken earlier. Dr Ryan zaps only 1-2% of the thousands of pores, so good thing is I won’t be experiencing any dry skin or flakiness after the treatment as compared to other solutions!

AGNES Treatment for Acne

It is completely pain-free during the AGNES Treatment. Although the machine sound might be somewhat distracting with its constant beeping, it is all in all a pleasant virgin experience for me.

The treatment takes about one and a half hour from arrival to exit, so it is quite fast and, more importantly, painless for me. Although I experience some redness and swelling immediately after the treatment, it doesn’t stop me from going out for dinner. Of course, I must remember to hydrate, moisturize and sunscreen.

AGNES Treatment for pimples

One month after the treatment, the redness has subsided and I am quite pleased with the results. The zapped problematic pimple areas have no recurrence so far and there is no drying or sensitivity. My face also felt much less oilier than before. Understand that, depending on person to person, it may require 1 to 3 treatments or more to prevent new acne from forming from existing healthy pores.

And the best thing of all, it is permanent, so no need to compare between harsh pimple creams or taking medication that is not ideal for kidney again!

ALBION Milk First – EXAGE Advance Milk and Moist Full Lotion Review


I have always been a fan of ALBION Skin Conditioner and recently, my knowledge of ALBION widened after attending the launch of ALBION Moist Advance Milk, which promotes their unique skincare method – Milk First.

I never understood why it was necessary to apply milk before lotion but after using ALBION EXAGE range for more than a month now, and seeing the results, I finally understood why!

There are two key beliefs in Milk First:

  1. The Best Timing
    “”Because your skin is delicate and prone to losing moisture and oils, it is vital to promptly fix your skin’s moisture balance “after using face wash” in order to properly care for the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin).”Not sure if you girls apply your skincare right after using face wash, but for me, I always apply my skincare within 30 seconds after I wash my face as I feel that my face is the cleanest at that point of time. So I can safely say that, even though my rational isn’t right, I did obey Milk First – The Best Timing belief after all!
  2. The Best Moisture Balance
    “Instantly creates the perfect balance of moisture for your skin.”Your skin is often rough and dry after a facial wash as the moisture and oils are washed away from your face, and this includes both the good and bad oils. Therefore it is important to apply Milk Lotion on your skin first to restore the moisture needed. ALBION’s Milk lotion is the perfect balance of water-base moisture, natural moisturizing factor and oil-base moisture.

I have been using the ALBION EXAGE range for close to a month now and I really LOVE the after effect! My skin glows after every use. Yes you heard me right – after every single use.

I am currently using the full range – Clear Moist Wash, Moist Advance Milk II, Moist Full Lotion II and Vital Focus.

Albion EXAGE

First things first, the Clear Moist Wash has a very creamy texture that I love. My skin feels bouncier right after every wash. I have very dry skin so it is very rare for my skin to feel bouncier after a wash. Sometimes, my skin feels tight with certain face wash and that is when I know that the product isn’t suitable for me.

albion exage review

For their Step 2 and 3, it is highly recommended to use their facial cotton for their milk and lotion as it helps to enhance the absorption.

One pack of ALBION cotton contains 120 pieces of cotton and costs only $7! And rest assured this is high-quality cotton is specially created to ensure that your face doesn’t get scratched when massaging your Milk Lotion into your skin.


I love the pleasant scent of both the Milk and the Lotion. They have a very soothing scent which starts and ends my day right. The milk lotion has a creamy texture and 3 pumps are all you need for your entire face.


The Lotion on the other hand, has a milky watery texture. Massage the milk into your skin and pat the lotion onto your face with the cotton pad gently. Doing it the correct way can help shrink the size of your pores if you have enlarged pores like mine.

Watch the videos below so that you can apply the Milk & Lotion correctly. Do note that applying the products the right way can bring out the maximum efficacy of the products.

Albion EXAGE

I always end my regime with Vital Focus, which seals in all the goodness into my skin. As compared to the days where I have yet to embark on Albion Milk First journey, my face is now a lot smoother.

Some friends even commented that I haved the marriage glow. The truth is…. I changed my entire skincare regime!

When the people around you notice the improvements more than you, it shows that the products are working well for you.

If you are keen to give them a try, ALBION can be found at Takashimaya Department Store, Metro Centrepoint and Robinsons Raffles City.


D’Skin Lab Facial – For Him/Her


As part of my daily work to conduct business discussion with clients, I get to frequent Novena Square quite a fair bit. Having a beauty blogger girlfriend does keep my eyes more open to Beauty products and skin treatment centres within the mall.  One of the stores that stood out in the higher storeys of the building is the Su Beau Derma Clinik. They are one of the leading skin treatment centres in Singapore which focus on the use of high tech medical grade equipments to achieve desirable facial results for their clients which are proven safe and effective.

Su Beau Derma Clinik is also known as d’skin lab. They also carry their own line of skincare. To find out more, visit their website for more information.

This time around, I am very thankful we not only get to try out their treatments but also their latest addition, the Soft Plus (A standalone PC-powered skin assessment system. With this all-in-one machine, the dedicated therapists are able to track our skin’s pH, hydration, sebum, elasticity and melanin level within minutes!

It is a painless, fast and simple procedure. Basically, the therapist attaches a probe onto our faces. End of it all, the reports for each components are revealed! Here, you get to know whether your skin is aging faster than your true age!

M went ahead first.  I like the fact that the therapists were very detailed in their analysis of our skin so as to ensure that they are able to recommend us very effective treatment thereafter.

A glimpse of what appears on the Soft Plus screen during the analysis.

Finally my turn after a short wait of 10 minutes!

With the analysis completed, the therapists are aware of our skin condition and proceed to recommend us our respective treatments.

We needed different facials.

For me: Hydration & Lifting

For M: Hydration

We changed into our respective robes and…..

slept… well not really…

If you are wondering why I did not contribute to the photos, it is simply because the treatment was so soothing that I fell asleep during the course of it! Lol! Got a good scolding from M! But well, it was all worth it! I love visiting them after work because they would drain my entire day of exhaustion away.

I would say truthfully that even the extraction portion of my treatment was of minimum irritation. There is a reason for this! Later did I realise that the extraction process was not simply done by any Tom, Dick & Harry. Also, certainly not my therapist herself. For this task, they have an extraction specialist! They take on a long, ardous training before being certified as an extraction expert.

After the extraction, our face felt SO SO much cleaner. M had an extra mask to help in the extraction due to the application of make up on a daily basis. She did the hydration facial which she enjoyed thoroughly.

Her feedback was ” It was one of the best facial so far! The face felt so smooth and clean because all the black/white heads were removed in just one session. The foundation felt easier to apply because the face was smooth and the fine lines were not as visible as before as the skin is deeply hydrated”.

For me, It was my virgin experience in eyebrow shaping! I think my face look neater now and the skin looked more radiant. That is also why you see quite a fair bit of selfie in my Instagram (@james_awyong) recently 😛

Another feature of the treatment that impressed me was the fact that their therapists were well-versed with good massage techniques. After the facial treatment portion, my therapist went on to give me a rejuvenating shoulder, neck and head massage. See! That’s why i couldn’t escape the slumber!

Thumbs up for their services and skills. I personally hate pushy people, the staffs were neither pushy nor arrogant. Good job!

We are planning to head back once a month. Join us too?

Benzac – For Acne Prone Skin

I have a confession to make. I do not have excellent skin and my skin can be quite sensitive at times. As I had already mentioned earlier in my older entries, I had an awful acne outbreak due to allergy from a friend’s skincare product.

I was so desperate for it to heal but we know, healing from breakout takes time and it can be quite a painful period.

Just nice, I took up a challenge at the same time. It was a 5 day challenge by Benzac which helps in acne.

Benzac specializes in treating mild to moderate acne sufferers. It contains benzoyl peroxide which helps unblock pores and kills acne bacteria within 48 hours.

I was given 3 products to try for the 5 days.

1) Benzac Daily Facial Liquid Cleanser
2) Benzac Facial Scrub
3) Benzac AC 5 Water Base Gel

As the cleanser which was given to me was mainly for oily to combination skin but I have dry skin, I only use it every night before I go to bed. The cleanser removes impurities, helps unblock pores and controls oiliness without drying my skin.

Suitable for daily use if you have oily or combination skin.

The Benzac Facial Scrub is suitable for ALL skin types and helps to exfoliate and deeply cleans the skin while reducing skin oiliness without damaging the skin.

I only managed to use it twice throughout the 5 days challenge as scrub can cause dry and flaky skin if you scrub your face away. So my advise is to only use it once every 2-3 days.

My skin felt clean and fresh after the scrub and it does not leave the skin dry or wrinkled. Thumbs up!

The scrub looks slightly yellowish and it does not have any medicated scent. You can also see a lot of microbeads with the naked eye.

Lastly, the Treatment Gel demostrates fast, effective results and long-term benefits in clinically tested trials. This works like magic. Like I said, I was so desperate for it to heal and I was actually very hardworking throughout the 5 days with this gel.

Just so you know, there are different strength for the gel. Always start the treatment with a smaller dose.

I was given the 5% gel and trust me, my outbreak was pretty bad. It was all over the cheeks and forehead. The gel is a spot treatment and should ONLY be applied to affected areas.

This was only applied after I had already cleansed and hydrated the face and was ready for bed.

The gel works by killing the bacteria that cause acne, drying the acne pimples and helping the skin to peel. New skin would grow and heal after that.

It can also unplugs blocked pores and contains acrylates copolymer beads that absorb excess oils and release glycerol which reduces the risk of irritation.

The gel will appear colourless after rubbing. As it could be drying, I only applied a tiny amount to the acnes every night. Visible results could be seen in just 3 days of application so I became pretty hopeful after that!

Remember, Cleanse, Scrub, and then Gel!

Lucky me, Benzac gave me acne-free skin again! I am looking good again!

I am a proud ambassador of Hada Labo!

Some of you may have already seen the Television Commercial on Channel 8 or 5. Yeap, I am the new Hada Labo girl and I am extremely proud to be the ambassador of my favourite skincare brand! Not everyone gets to be the ambassador of their favorite brand right? So yes, you could guess my feeling when I was informed that I was selected.

1 drop locks an ocean. Doink Doink!

This is where I talk about the behind the scenes of the entire TVC.

I have no experience in anything like talking infront of the camera nor speech and drama. It was a very difficult task for me because I have stage fright and I was so scared that I might mess up the whole thing.

Thankfully and gratefully, everyone was very patience in guiding me and tolerating my countless NGs. Lol.

Meet the wonderful people from Hada Labo (Mentholatum Singapore). They were the people who were with me throughout and constantly advising me on the scripts and actions.

I had to report at 7am for the hair and makeup and had a long long day till 7pm. It was a very nice experience and definitely, one of the best.

For someone who had no experience like me, even walking in to the cafe scene was hard. LOL.

And this picture, it seemed that I was totally memerized by his eyes. No? HAHAHAHA. Ken was actually just giving me some instructions and telling me about the next scene.

Where are your eyes, Ken?!

I love the entire look Mark gave me, the eyes, the brows and everything. I had always thought that the makeups applied for people who were on-screen were thick until I met Mark.

With Charmaine again. She’s so pretty, isn’t she?!

My second scene was me looking out of the window until Chloe praised my skin. Lol!

Touch up on the hair, the face, the hair, the face and the hair again. It was a common routine for me every 20-30 minutes. The curls wouldn’t say still!

I was also feeling stress at one point of time because I had severe tongue tied and couldn’t even say a simple sentence properly.

It was fun doing this scene because Ken hid in a corner. And when I turned my head up, he would be there to give me a huge smile just so that I can smile brighter. Lol!!

And then Tadah!! Chloe came in. She is extremely cute and bubbly. I really enjoy working with her. That was only the second time that we had met (once, at the screen call), and our chemistry was fairly good. There was no awkwardness. I was shy, but her liveliness made things so much better.

She had short hair and the hair was actually an extension. I personally like her with long hair. She has this very Japanese look.

Okay, I did that face on purpose.

Done with all my scenes and it was time for me to take some selfies. I wanna wake up to this look everyday!

Stay tuned for other related behind the scenes and I will also be sharing with you my favourite skincare products that I am currently using! 🙂

My 1st experience with Botox and Fillers

I had always wanted a sharper nose and smaller face but never had the guts to do anything about it.

I was very glad to visit Astique for some facial enhancements. All thanks to My Fat Pocket and aesthetics hub! It was like a dream come true for me~~~~

Click here for more information on aesthetics hub and Astique Clinic 🙂

As I was looking into the mirror, I was more determined that I needed a smaller and sharper face. And take a look at the dark circles around my eyes as well. I need to do something about it before it gets worst.

So while waiting for the doctor, I explored the clinic a little. You know, clinics always look like a typical clinic whereby you have the counter, waiting area and rooms. But Astique clinic looks like a little playroom where you get to browse through and try out the different skincare products.

This picture below shows a very clear view of my side profile. I feel that I have a button nose. The peak is a little sharp but the nose bridge just isn’t high enough. And my jaw line, it sure is far away from small and sharp. Lol.

The very young doctor, Mr. Matthew Yap, consulted me and told me what I needed for my face. He was also very friendly and patience towards me. As it was my very first time, I kept emphasizing on the pain score and time and again, he would assure me that it wouldn’t hurt a bit.

He also has very nice complexion himself!

I also wanted to try some fillers to soften the very visible smile lines so that I can look younger as the folds made my face look old and tired. Lesser lines also mean a clearer and cleaner look!

I was also really comfortable with him. He told me all I needed for my nose was a higher nose bridge.

The numbing cream was applied for 10-15 minutes and I was very skeptical of its effect because I really can’t bring myself to believe that a topical cream can actually stop all the pain that would come later.

I was of course, proven wrong. After the numbing effect has set, it was time for the the jaw botox. I am quite petite in size (but not short!) as you can see from my pictures, but I have quite a fat and big face. Who would complain that they have a sharp or small face anyway?!

I can hit 40kg and still have a chubby face. I don’t know why.

The numbing cream effect can last one for hours. It lasted me for nearly 4 hours i think, so there was no need for another application of numbing cream for the injections.

Biting my teeth to estimate the size of the muscle on my jaw before deciding on the amount of botox to inject.

I tend to chew on the left size of my face more, so the muscle on my left was almost twice the size of the muscle on my right! :O And this can result in a bigger face on the left (which was what happened to me). I realized that my left face was much bigger than my right even before the doctor told me that but had absolute no idea that what was the cause.

I could feel nothing when the needle went in. I did not know and refused to believe that I felt nothing at all! To think that I used to have SO MUCH fears for them.

I can only see the results for botox 2 weeks later. So hold on, I will do up another post to show you the huge difference!

And I am very much in love with the side profile of my face!

For fillers, Juvederm was used on me and it was said that the effect would last me between 6 months to a year.

I was really excited to see the final results. A higher nose bridge was always what I wanted.

You see, I could still laugh, so you should be able to guess my pain score.

To be honest, on a scale of 10, I would gladly rate it between 0 to 1. Likewise for the chin filler.

The chin filler was done to give the face a more almond-shaped kind of feel.

Pretty much the same for both fillers – Injection, Clean and Massage.

Below are some pictures for comparison.


Nothing was done to the face. You can see visible cleave on my chin

Post procedures. 

Do observe the chin in this picture. Cleave gone and the whole face looks sharper. This was exactly what the Doctor wanted to achieve. I really love the prominent chin.

Now, look at the side profile of the nose again. Can you see the higher nose bridge? I look so good in most pictures now! Save me some time on highlighting the nose bridge. Heh.

These procedures have certainly boosted my confidence level and I am really loving how I look now. I can’t wait to hear what Dr. Matthew has for me next!

Carbon Laser at DRX Clinic. Let’s go Chao Tah!

I am finally back to the land of beautiful skin.

Due to the improvements of the skin conditions:

1. Recovery from ance/pimples outbreak due to haze
2. Constant dehyrated skin

Dr. Yani and Chester arranged a session of Carbon Laser for me. The benefits of this laser includes smoother and more radiant skin, and perhaps, a little effect on closing up the pores. To be honest, I feel that I have enlarged pores so I was really hoping that this would minimize my pore size.

As this laser requires your consent, you would need your parent or guardian to be with you to sign the consent form if you’re under the age of 21.

Make up removed. All that was left was my birthmark and eyeliner.

Next, Carbon was applied to my face. Before the laser, Nurse Zen and Chester explained the procedures to me again.

They told me that I would be able to hear fire crackers cracking throughout and MY!!!!! THAT SCARED ME A LOT. I am someone with extremely low pain tolerance but for the sake of beauty, I must endure!

They assured me by saying “You could only hear the sound and the pain is very minimal.” But of course, I was already biting my teeth and my heart was already pounding like mad.

Still, I still wanna camwhore a bit with this “burnt” black face. LOL. It is not everyday that I have such a black face.

My heart was already in my mouth when I laid on the bed.

My pretty Doctor, Dr. Yani did the laser for me personally. I was still waiting for the cracking of the fire cracker but even the sound was minimal.

Don’t even mention about the pain. It was almost nothing. I think I scared myself for nothing in fact.

The procedure was divided into 2 parts.

Part 1: Laser
Part 2: Laser with cold air

I was practically enjoying myself during Part 2 and I remembered asking Dr. Yani this “Is there even any pain?” Lol!

The cold air was damn relaxing. I don’t mind doing this over and over again!

You can watch it live because Chester has kindly recorded some of the scenes for me for both Part 1 and 2 🙂

These videos would do justice to my words. No frowning or jerking because of the pain as there was NONE at all.

The end result. No redness or burnt mark. As it was my first session, the voltage wasn’t that high yet.

It is recommended to do Carbon Laser once a month with slight increase in the voltage for better and more significant results. We can’t expect miracles with just one session can we?

Despite saying so, my skin was smoother and I could see a slight reduction in pore size 🙂

(I wish I could tear the birthmark on the lower lip away. Stop spoiling my pictures!)

If you’re interested in the Carbon Laser or are you facing any skin problems, feel free to head over to their facebook page at! 🙂

ZO Skin Health

Celebrity dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi was in Singapore last month and mine, I must say that I am honored to be able to be present to listen to his speech.

Dr. Zein Obagi believes in the future of skincare and has launch his own medical skincare lines ZO Skin Health. They are exclusively available in skin clinics like Prive Clinic, Cosmetic surgery and other skin clinics. You can’t buy it from the pharmacies outside.


He had treated a lot of patients and brought their youthful skin back. Below is one good example.


He also mentioned that applying too many products to the skin will cause the skin to produce less oil and hence, moisture. I do notice this because my face tends to get oily more easily when I leave house without make up.

I am the type who spam thick makeups on the face, but I still have dehyrated skin. Should I completely stop making up then? 🙁

ZO Skin Health products come in with recommended programmes kit to cater to different individual needs and skin health.

They have the Daily Skin Care Program, Anti-aging Program or Aggressive Anti-Aging program.

I guess what I really needed was the daily skin care program to boost my skin health.

The Daily Skin Care Program provides the essential tools that can be used on a daily basis to help restore and maintain youthful and radiant skin.

The program consist of Offects Exfoliating Cleanser, Offects Exfoliating Polish, Ossential Daily Power Defense and Oclipse Suncreen + Primer SPF 30. (They replaced all the E with O. So cute!!)

Offects Exfoliating Cleanser – Gently exfoliates and cleanses skin, reduces excess oil and neutralizes free radicals. Encapsulated vitamin E provides antioxidant protection and hydration for healthy skin.

Offects Exfoliating Polish – Ultra-fine magnesium crystals exfoliate dead skin cells and increase epidermal turnover for a cleaner, smoother, more even-toned complexion. Vitamins A, C, E, and C-Esters provide antioxidant benefits to help maintain skin barrier function.

Ossential Daily Power Defense – Time-released retinol, antioxidants, and specialized DNA repairing enzymes work around-the-clock to help minimize UV oxidative damage and uneven pigmentation, while restoring skin function and elasticity.

Oclipse Suncreen + Primer SPF 30 – Using natural melanin, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide to provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, Oclipse is also used to smooth and prime skin for a more even makeup application.


Right now, I am using their Oclipse sunscreen primer. I only apply it once a day, which is before I put on any make up. I have always felt that even if you leave house without makeup, you MUST have your sunscreen on. Other than protecting yourself against sunburn, aging, it also protects you against SKIN CANCER!

Oclipse Sunscreen Primer is retailing at $85 for 40ml.

It was also kinda cute because even the desserts served that day was catered to the theme for ZO Skin Health – Blue!

You can have baby skin too!

Due to my constant juggle with events, school, family and friends, I rarely have the chance for a proper rest and this made me a victim of dark circles, eye bags and some other problems that will be discussed later.

Hence, I am on a mission to babify and save my skin with The SPA-Lon!

I could see visible results just from the first session! (Pictures as evidence. 100% without photoshop)

On my first session, I was consulted by the senior beautician, Irene, and was told that I have quite a few areas of concern.

1)Dull complexion (due to congested skin, not properly cleanse)
2)Dehydrated Cheeks (due to poor circulations)
3)Dead skin cells (on forehead, chin)
4)Laughing Lines (caused by sagging muscle)
5) Dark circles (caused by late nights)

You know, all along, I thought that the only problem was probably my dehydrated skin because I hate drinking water. I never knew I had so much problems. I guess they are not really visible or major like acne for me to notice and that is probably why I always thought that my skin is pretty good except a little dry.

We all know that with better complexion, comes higher confidence.
And with The SPA-Lon’s help, I can be confident! 🙂

To me, The SPA-Lon is a very comfortable, classy yet relaxing place.
No tension, no noise, just pure relaxation.

This was a corner of their toilet. You can choose to take a quick shower there before starting on the facial. Isn’t it always better to feel clean rather than lying down with a long day sticky body with a clean face post facial?

Before the lady began the whole treatment, she massaged my head, neck and shoulders a little to loosen me up. It was so comfortable that I almost fell asleep.

Cleansing the face.

After cleansing, I was quite afraid of the huge equipment beside me because I have low tolerance for pain. I was told that I would be doing Micro-peeling as one of the procedure and the word peeling hurt me a little. LOL.

In the end, the micro-peeling was probably lesser than an ant’s bite. PHEW.

Here is a picture of the before and after with Left being before and Right being after.

This picture is probably the best evidence for the visible results after 1 treatment. Can you see the glow on the post-treatment picture on the right?! :O

This is just the first session. So you can still see some flaws on the close up picture.

Another point is that my face was ultra smooth. Yes, super was an understand so I used ultra. Even the application of make ups were so smooth and easy for the next few days – a week. Irene also told me that the treatments should be done weekly (for I am not sure how long), to see more effect. So do look forward to my second entry on my second session 🙂

Let me give you more details on the treatments that I did that day:

5 treatments to address the 4 main problems that I have.

1) Dull complexion and Dead Skin Cells
Micro-Peeling Treatment – To cleanse the skin and exfoliated dead skin cells together with removing fine lines on the face with minimal discomfort. Pigmentation and dark spots are also reduced to brighten the skin.

Photo Rejuvenation Treatment – Combined with Micro Peeling Treatment so that you can’t see any post peeling redness. It also helps in increasing the collagen production and regulates melanin levels (for dark spots and pigmentation), resulting in more radiant skin.

2) Laughing Lines/ Aging
Radio Frequency Treatment – Provides an immediate tensor and lifting effect to the skin and has a filler effect to the wrinkles, combining all signs of aging. Sounds painful but nah, it is 100% un-invasive and pain free. It was like massaging my face and nothing else.

3) Dark Circles
Cryocooling Treatment – Done by a soothing, low temperature hand piece. Eye bags and dark circles were visibly reduced and the surface of the eye contour was smoothened. It was very cooollldddd but comfortable.

Eye-Lifting Treatment – The eye contour was lifted by electromagnetic waves as well as smoothening expression lines and crows feet.




You can compare the old photos in the other blog posts and those which I just took recently. Look at the face contour and glow! 🙂

Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask

What is as edible and good for your skin?

Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask

Instant Brightening With Intense Hydration

Yogurt is Not Just Good Food. It can be Healthy Skin Treatment Mask Too!

Amethyst Mineral Yogurt Mask builds upon the natural goodness of premium yogurt with the additional special blend of Amethyst, Tranexamic acid, Hyaluronic acid, Bio Energy Fluid, Ginseng and Olive Oil.

Your skin becomes instantly brighter, feels more moisturized and soft. With regular use, a fairer and more even skin tone will give you a natural radiant glow from within.

Product Efficacies:

– Intensively nourishes and rejuvenates skin, for a soft and smooth complexion
– Excellent whitening and brightening of skin, giving a naturally fair and radiant complexion
– Deeply hydrates and locks in moisture, for supple and healthy looking skin
– Helps to keep skin refreshed and cool
– Non-greasy formula for easy and deep absorption into skin

The application of the mask is actually pretty smooth because it’s cream based and best still, not thick so you can wash it off pretty easily.
 The smell is a BONUS. It has a sweet fruity scent in my opinion.

I guess the only bad thing about it is that there is no scoop, thus, you would have to stick your fingers in to scoop up the mask.
So make sure your fingers are clean thoroughly before sticking them in!

After cleansing your face, gently massage an adequate amount onto your entire face. 
Leave the mask on for around 15 -30 minutes to allow the nutrients to be absorbed into the skin and rinse off thoroughly.

I have dry skin, so the mask can help to keep my face hydrated and at the same time brightening it 🙂

Available in stores at $18.90 only.
