After my first visit to Atlas Medical Clinic, I’m here to report back my first facial experience with Atlas Medical Clinic as promised!
As I mentioned before, my skin concerns are mainly dull and mild acne skin, Dr Yuen recommend and assigned two skincare treatments for me. Namely the Silk Peel treatment and the Vitamin C treatment!
Here’s a picture of my before facial:
This is what the Silk Peel is about, taken from the clinic’s website:
Silk-peel’s Dermal-infusion is a breakthrough treatment that uses “wet abrasion” to infuse the skin with a topical dermaceuticals while simultaneously providing diamond exfoliation, targeting the unique needs of your skin to give you the revitalization you want.
Dermal-infusion abrades the upper 30-35 microns of the stratum corneum and clinical studies have shown that it provides even abrasion across the treatment area and rapid hydration to the underlying cells.
Compared to traditional microdermabrasion, which can cause discomfort, dryness and irritation, Silk peel is gentler on your skin. There is also no downtime and the procedure lasts only about 20 minutes. There are also a range of topical dermaceuticals for dehydration, dull looking skin, dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, acne and acne scarring.
Hyaluronic acid plus allantoin and glycerin combine to deliver rich, nourishing moisture to very dry skin, improving overall skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Using Kojic acid, Arbutin and Mulberry, this solution neutralizes active melanocytes while calming the skin with Aloe and Glycerin.
This anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory solution promotes clear skin for patients with pustular or cystic acne using Salicylic acid. The added aloe extract soothes even the most sensitive skin.
Your skin will look renewed with a radiant healthy glow after the treatment.
She uses a machine with a tool that is like a pen that has a texture similar to sandpaper at the tip and it basically scraps off the dead skin cell very lightly. Then the same tool will emit a liquid that serves 2 purposes. The first is to moisturize the skin and the second is to prep the skin to be more absorbent, like a first treatment essence. To best describe how this tool works, it’s like a nail buff when you buff your nails except this if for your face and at the hands of a trained beautician. I have very low tolerance for pain so I was hesitant about it initially but after going through it, I can attest that it’s gentle and nothing to be afraid off. It’s definitely less painful then extraction and it feels quite good. Cause I love to exfoliate my skin, so this feels like a very thorough skin exfoliation!
After the silk peel treatment, we commenced on the Vitamin C treatment.
This is what is says on the clinic website:
ART VITA-C HYDROLIGHTENING 비타민 C 화이트닝 관리
Using innovative technology, this calming and refreshing therapy uses unique korean lab-researched and developed concentrated vitamin C enriched serums that have anti oxidation, anti-pigmentation and skin tone lightening effects.
Firstly a lot of Vitamin C serum is spread on the skin. Next there is machine (different from the silk peel) and a tool that has two ends. One end will be in the hands of the beautician who will use it to spread the vitamin c into your face. The other end requires you to hold on to.
The vitamin C treatment feels very hydrating and after the treatment, remarkably, I feel that my face is very bouncy even without touching it.
Take a look at the photo of my face right after the treatments:
It’s fairer/ lighter and the acne marks are lighter.
It’s been more than 2 weeks since this facial session and more than 3 weeks since I’ve been using the Rose 2 skincare range and I’m slowly seeing that my skin is getting clearer and fairer. I did have a breakout after changing the skincare range, though I can’t be sure if it’s because my the change in skincare or because of the usual breakouts I get. I’ll update more photos in my next post as I share about my back-cial(back facial) experience!
Here’s some of the pics I took outside the clinic after the facials!
