We always dream of clear and beautiful skin but in the real world, that is hard to achieve and maintain. They said that the key to clear skin is to have an ample amount of sleep, eat the right food which is more on vegetables and fruits, and drinks lot of water. Another way to have a clean & clear skin is to visit a facial clinic like Diana Stalder Face, Body & Skin Care Center atleast once a month.
Well, for me I can't/didn't do any of the things above. I always sleep late, I just eat what I want and I don't think I follow the 8-glass of water a day rule. I don't have time to visit facial centers, too. Of course, the result is these unsightly pimples on my face :-( Add to that the fact that I have oily + sensitive skin, which is more prone to pimples compare to normal skins.
Of course I have to do something about it so I tried the ACNESCAPE treatment at Diana Stalder Face, Body & Skin Care Center just this week. The price for the ACNESCAPE (acne treatment with bioptron) differs: P600.00 for mild, P700.00 for moderate and P750.00 for severe. Luckily, mine was just moderate, so there's still hope for me :-P
ACNESCAPE (Acne Treatment with Bioptron) Procedures:
After that, my whole face is 'steamed' for ten minutes. Next is the most painful part: pricking! Super duper ouch! But of course this is to remove the hidden dirt in my face, this is where they removed the blackheads and whiteheads on my face. Then they cleanse it with an antibiotic cleanser, then followed by a hot and cold compress.
|high frequency thingy.|
You can read my first more on this at http://www.blog-ph.com/2012/07/spending-day-with-diana-stalder.html Reaffirming Mask is P700.00 at Diana Stalder Face, Body & Skin Care Center and you can feel the effect after the mask is removed, the swelling of my face is minimized and it feels smoother too. My face improved its texture too.
As much as I don't want to include my photos here,
but for comparative purposes I will post it.
It might scare you off though,
just a warning! ;)
The left photo is after the pricking. You'll notice that my whole face is really swelling and redness all over :-( The right photo is taken after 48 hours of the Acnescape and the Reaffirming Masks, you'll notice that the redness is almost gone and my face is starting to look normal. i hope it continues that way. DIANA STALDER told me that if I want my face to clear & no more break-outs, I'll just follow these diet atleast in 3 days: no salty food, no sweet food, more on vegetables/fruits and drink eight glass of water.
To help me achieve a more clear skin, they recommend me to use the following: Diana Stalder Lemon Soap (especially formulated for oily skin like me, I'm now using this! smells great too) Macrolide ( i think this one is similar to toner) the Aloe-E Cream (which will help me fasten the healing of the wounds cause by the pricking procedure) and the Diana Stalder Sunblock Gel (they told me to apply it often even I'm not going outside because even television and computer/laptops causes radiation and my face needs protection from that.
Goodluck to me ;-) I'll update you guys.
