My Customized Skincare Products from IDS Clinic (Review)

It wasn’t my first time visiting IDS Clinic. The only difference this time would be me bringing back a set of skincare products, specially customized for my skin.

Being plagued by skin problems such as acnes and keloids was a torture since puberty. Managing such troublesome and oily skin type was not my forte at all too.

I had retuned to IDS Clinic for a consultation with Doctor Ian Tan at Novena Specialist Center that day. Doctor Tan was already familiar with my skin conditions since I had keloid jabs done by him previously. Upon reviewing my skin condition, he prescribed a set of IDS skincare products specially catered to help improve my current skin condition.

I was then led out to another product consultation where I had my face photo taken for record purpose. One of the skin consultant then introduced to me the range of products that was prescribed by Doctor Tan, ensuring that I understood the sequence of application. I admit that I have not used this many facial products before and I felt slightly intimidated.

Thank goodness I have managed to follow my facial regime planned out diligently for the following month! I have seen improvements in my skin conditions in terms of control & repair as well as brightening aspects.

Let’s take a look at my prescribed set of customized skincare products shall we ?

First and foremost, my daily regime starts off with the T1 Refreshing Cleanser. After wetting my face once, I usually apply a single pump onto my palms before rubbing till slightly foamy. I could detect a faint fragrance that reminded me of orange blossom as I massaged my face gently before rinsing off once again. It is known to provide deep cleansing without stripping the skin’s natural protective layer.

The next step would be to apply the T1 Refreshing Toner which comes in an equally tall spray bottle. I simply spray the toner onto my palm before patting gently onto my face. You could also choose to spray directly as well. I love how it offers my face a matte finishing in the morning as it aids in unclogging and shrinking my already-large pore size.

The Pore Formula is what people with oily skin would need as its purpose is to refine pores. Just a pump of its beige solution for application would help minimize oil production without drying out my face. I felt a tingling sensation every time, just like having a cool mint wash. This product is meant to reduce both blackheads and whiteheads.

The C-Plus is in fact one of my favorite topical skin care products! Besides being clear and easily applied onto my face, it is a formulated potent form of Vitamin C. Its skin lightening effect assist to even out skin tone and lightening out my acne marks.

Applies to Day Time Use

Last but not least before leaving my home would be to apply the S2 Non-Tinted Suncreeen. Since we have to constantly put on our masks outdoors, I only applied mainly on my forehead. Its broad-spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen basically protects my skin from 99% of UV radiation. What makes this sunscreen different would be its additional function of blue light (HEVL) protection among the other benefits!

Applies to Night Time Use

Before going to bed, my facial care had another step which involved mixing both A-Plus & Recovery Serum before application. I was initially stunned by the bright yellow color of A-Plus and it has a similar texture to acrylic paint. It has age-preventive function, targeting fine line and wrinkles, as well as reduce blemish marks.

It was definitely a wise move to mix it together with the Recovery Serum for easier application. Its function includes reducing irritation, redness and improves the overall skin tone.

I definitely find the cream-like Spot Control a really useful skincare product whenever I would realize an acne was about to make an appearance on my face. Not only does it minimize breakouts but also soothes and heals skin!

After every week, I would pamper my face with a sheet of facemask loaded with 30ml of serum from DermaShield Mask Box. It basically protects my skin from UV, Infra-Red, Blue light as well as environmental pollutants. The amount of serum contained in there could provide 2 days worth of usage and is so moisturizing! Each box contain 10 sheets of mask.

IDS Clinic Pico Laser Treatment Review

I have been wanting to do face laser treatment ever since my army days, hoping that such a treatment could at least lighten my acne scars that had haunted me for years.
Since I am just lazy to do a detailed research on face lasers procedures as well as pricing, I decided to just stick back to the same skin specialist clinic which I have been visiting every few months for my keloid jabs and purchase of skin products.

Gamma Light Mist Treatment Review at D’skin

I arrived at D’skin that was located conveniently at Novena Square to experience for myself one of their newly launched Gamma Light Mist Treatment. This Gamma Light Mist Treatment is said to be an advanced form of treatment that could reduce inflammation and revive tired skin.
Since it was my first time at D’skin, my treatment started off with the standard skin analysis with the aid of a machine that could analyse stuff such as the hydration level of my face, mainly forehead and both cheeks.
After removing my shoes, I was led into the treatment room all ready to begin. I know it sounds strange but the sounds of Gamma Light Mist got me kind of excited.
My face was gently given a double cleansed before steam was used to open up my pores. As I have oily skin and often have battles with my deadly acne enemies, my whiteheads were plentiful. A yellowish gel-like mask was applied on my face which needed time to harden before peeling off. It definitely was satisfying to see so much of my whiteheads being wiped out as the mask was peeled from my face! For facial treatment like this, I do not edit my face. Do check out my unedited pictures below and you would understand what I meant. (This whiteheads removal process is not part of the Gamma Light Mist Treatment.)
Minor extraction was next and my facial therapist was gentle in case it was too painful for me to bear. I have high medium-high pain threshold anyway. A device was used on my face after my extraction and it was prickly. Most probably the effect of bacterial elimination from my face. Another device that emits purplish lights can could only be visible from the camera screen aids in the rejuvenation process.
Next comes the Gamma Light Mist Treatment which emits mist that could penetrate into the deepest layer of my skin to activate each cell’s metabolic process. The mist emitted was cooling as though I was undergoing a face spa, coating my face with fine droplets and moisturising it in the process. It was probably about 10 minutes each time on the left, right and front of my face.
The treatment ended off with an oxygenated mask which was probably my first time hearing this term. The mask was clear, gel-like and had little lumpy stuff which I have no idea about. It was pretty easy to rinse off too.
By the end of the treatment, besides the slight redness from the extraction process which was normal, I felt an improved resilience and my skin was indeed more hydrated too. The total length of the treatment was about 120 mins and suitable for all skin types.
Thank you Brandcellar and D’skin for the invite.

Brighttonix Y10 Mouth Rejuvenation System Review

Brighttonix Y10 Mouth Rejuvenation System
Maintaining my oral hygiene and keeping my teeth white is definitely a dread for me. Although I hardly drink coffee or alcohol, tea was the main culprit that stained me teeth and it has unknowingly became my habit to order ‘teh ping’ (ice tea) at least 3 times a week.
Brighttonix has recently launched the Y10 system which is a procedure that provides immediate results in teeth whitening as well as oral cavity rejuvenation. Nowadays, results are what everyone would expect to see. The earlier and more obvious the results are, the better.
My experience with Brighttonix began with the comparison of my current teeth shade to a scale of teeth shades from 1 to 29 as shown in the picture below. Mine falls under 11 despite the fact that I did scaling at the dentist just a week before.
I was then led to a sofa beside a pretty portable I-pad looking system with an attached disposable mouthpiece. With an initial shade and P3 (30 mins) preset selected, the nurse proceeded on to remove the plastic packaging of the mouthpiece. A special bright blue toothpaste was then squeezed along the groove of the top as well as the underside. I was asked to bite onto the mouthpiece before the timer started running in percentage.
The toothpaste was minty and completely edible as explained by the nurse. I guess that swallowing the toothpaste was one of the primary concerns that people would question. At first, like everyone else, I was a bit hesitant to swallow even the slightest bit of saliva that formed in my mouth. I ended up just swallowing it since it was safe to do so or it would ended up overflowing from my mouth.
So what exactly does this Y10 Mouth Rejuvenation System does?
It employs low power radio frequency (RF) technology that would remove stains from teeth enamel within that single session of 30 mins time frame. Think about the constant vibration that would occur between the Y10 toothpaste and the stains of your teeth at the molecule level. This collision and separation occur about 7 million times per seconds, resulting in stains being pulled out and leaving whiter teeth.
Thankfully it was only 30 mins since I get bored easily while fiddling with my phone.
This treatment is considered safer since it was painless, pleasant and do not have any post-treatment side effects at all. Best reward of all would be able to see instant results from a single session of Brighttonix Mouth Rejuvenation treatment. I have witnessed other influencers who did their treatment during the media launch and their teeth went a few shades whiter, leaving them a wide smile on their faces!
The treatment ended with me gargling my mouth and once again comparing my teeth against the scale. My teeth actually went a shade whiter from 11 to 9 even though I did scaling just a week before!
Who wouldn’t want to smile in front of the camera with whiter teeth?

Latest Bio Sculpture Treatment at Shou Slimming

Shou Slimming
Another virgin experience ticked off my list as I had undergone a session of the latest Bio Sculpture Treatment at Shou Slimming. Shou Slimming have 3 outlets in Singapore and the one I went was located at Velocity, Novena Square. The post will probably be a detailed process of my personal experience since I have been wanting to get rid of those annoying fats located around my lower abdomen. I want to correct others perception that being skinny does not necessary mean no ”spare tyre”. Having one made it even more shameful for me to even admit.
Bio Sculpture Treatment at Shou Slimming
The Bio Sculpture Treatment started off with me stripping and changing into a disposable underwear provided and lying with my belly exposed to the slightly warm red light hue. As explained by my therapist, the treatment involved the use of FIR (Far Infrared Ray) technology to target localised fatty deposits as well as to stimulate the body’s natural cellular stimulation while aiding in detoxification.
There were a total of 3 different types of Nano serums used in this Bio Sculpture Treatment. The therapist did explained to me each serum’s purpose in mandarin before using each of them. As shown, the first 2 serums were used under the red hue, followed by a 10-15 mins long belly massage/torture. I have attached a video that I have recorded for reference below. It was rather painful as my belly was constantly being pressed downwards (from middle and sides) for optimum results I supposed.
The third serum used to spread across my belly was cold and gel-like. One of them could possibly be the Bio Clay which has the function to seal in the effects of speeding up overall fat-burning, skin tightening as well as to encourage overall hormonal balance.

Shortly after the 3 serums, the treatment proceeded on with a cold bandage reeking strongly of herbal extracts. My therapist did warn me in regards to the smelly smell beforehand, but I somehow loved the 草药 (herbal medicine) smell instead!
After the mummification process of my belly was completed, a device of metallic studs was belted across the herbal bandage. These vibratory stud were explained to target important vital points for effective slimming results. A ‘pain-test’ (intensity level) was performed to ensure that I wasn’t in too much of a discomfort since it could be painful to some. My advice would be to withstand the discomfort and go with the normal settings suggested by your therapist for optimum results. The timed session lasted for about 45 mins as the device would vibrate aggressively on specific areas from time to time.
I tried taking a nap to pass time but unlike facial, I could not. The last ‘Beep’ sounded and my treatment has ended. From the pictures, my belly area was slightly red after the treatment and it took some time to subside. The entire treatment duration was about 1 hr 15 mins.
For the following 2 days, my belly was aching just like after doing 1000 situps the previous day. (Not that I could do that amount since I could barely hit 40.) Thankfully the pain subsided on the third day and my normally tight pants actually had a bit of leeway! Hopefully I do not fill this space up too quickly within the next few days.

Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment at Chrysalis Aesthetics Clinic

Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics
It is rather obvious that my face was a aftermath of an acne outbreak during my puberty stage and it remained a warzone throughout my polytechnic days. Just imagine how a ruptured minefield would be like.
Unlike girls/ladies who could cake their face with powder and makeup without getting judged, male victims like me could only let-it-be or occasionally apply a teeny weeny amount of BB cream. I guess with Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment available, we guys need not worry about not able to revive back our youthful skin we once had.   
Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics
Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics
After a cup of warm tea and a consultation with Dr Ho who explained to me about Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment which I was obviously oblivious to. It is a safe and non-invasive treatment in which Radio Frequency (RF) technology is used to generate heat to initiate skin change, rebuilding collagen and fibroblast stimulation.
3 to 4 treatments are required for best results.
Below are some things Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment could achieve:
-Decrease visible pores for even skin textures
-Reduce signs of aging for a fresher, more youthful look
-Even out textural irregularities for refined looking skin
-Reduce acne scars for a clearer and healthier complexion
-Diminish deep lines and folds for younger looking skin
-Correct necklace lines to lessen the signs of aging
-Diminish and tighten lax skin for a more firm decollete
Since I have nothing to hide about unglamness and clear and unfiltered pictures are needed in order to justify that Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment really could lighten my acne scars. The whole process of my treatment is also documented step by step, picture by picture. I was hoping my experience might be useful for those who intend to undergo this treatment.
Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics
A basic cleanse is done before the treatment to remove any form of makeup.
The intensity of Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment is by percentage (%) and mine was 80%. Dr Ho explained that any higher than that might leave pigmentation on our skin. My pain threshold level is high since I often do facial treatments that involves painful extractions. I even requested not applying numbing cream throughout the whole process which lasted about half an hour. The most painful and tear-triggering part would probably be the area below my eyes and along my jawline closest to the ears.

As you can see from the pictures, after Dr Ho has adjusted the percentage based on my skin condition (which is quite severe), he started working the machine on my face. Minor scarring requires one round while the deeper one required at least 2 to 3 rounds.
After the treatment has ended, I could instantly feel my skin tightened, restricting my facial expressions temporarily. That explains my stony look below with Dr Ho.  
Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics
Here is a photo with the team at Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics. Thankfully I looked like I had a pretty bad sunburn after the treatment and not anything worst or I would have to cancel my museum visit with my friend that day.
After treatment analysis:
Day 0 (on that day itself) – I rinsed my face with water only, not even daring to use any form of facial
                                           products. Face was quite sensitive and slightly reddish like having mild
                                           sunburn. That night I used a hydration mask.
Day 1 –  Dr Ho advice to put sunblock and tons of moisturiser. I stayed at home the entire day to let
              my skin rest.
Day 2 –  I was contemplating to even step out of my house to go to work. My face was redder than
              the previous 2 days. The sections where my face had undergone treatment was pretty
              obvious due to the redness. I started using facial foam, only lightly tapping on face. 
              Accidentally applied Vitamin C which was not supposed to that morning. (No acidic 
              substance to be applied.) Towards the evening, the area beside my eyebrow had a few lumps
              of swelling cysts. They went away after 2 days. At this point, need to bath with cool water
             and any attempt to squeeze white heads would cause bleeding. 
Day 3 – Skin still reddish and could feel a ‘crust’ forming on certain parts on my face. The crust wasn’t
             formed on areas that undergone 2 – 3 layers of treatment.
Day 4 – The textured dots was rather obvious on my face now and the 2 – 3 layers has started to form
             crusts as well.
Day 5 – Redness was gone. Skin start to dry up and started shedding like sand. (Below picture)
Day 6 – More shedding occurs on various areas. Started using scrub and gently rub against my face to
             remove dead skin.
Day 7 and 8 – Face remained slightly pink
Day 9 – Back to normal with visible improvement on skin.
Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics
I went back for a review almost 2 weeks after the treatment. My scars definitely have lightened slightly after a single session of Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment. Slight improvement might not seems much but for someone with bad acne scars, even a slightest improvement would mean a great deal to him/her. 
(Note that at least 3-4 sessions are minimally needed.)
My friend Shermaine also went for the similar treatment. Feel free to check out her post here
Thank you Janjee from Brand Cellar for the invite and Dr Ho, director of Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics for the treatment!
