I’d mentioned that I might consider aesthetic treatment after turning 50. Well, that wasn’t just talk. I actually went for a 3 Days to Instant Youth Intensive Anti-Aging Program recently at EstheClinic at their invitation. I was intrigued by their promise of turning back the clock in 3 days. It sounded both radical and intensive but I was game to give it a go anyway.
What was promised in that 3 days program was radiance, smoothness and a visibly firmer looking complexion utilizing EstheClinic’s advanced anti-aging aesthetic technologies with high-performing cosmeceuticals in one single treatment, repeated 3 times over 3 days for an intensive skin-rejuvenating effect.
I underwent a 5-step treatment which combines advanced Thermo-controlled Radiofrequency and LED Photomodulation technologies to stimulate collagen and elastin production on multiple levels of the dermis, and micro-needling to help the highly active ingredients from Eladerm cosmeceuticals to penetrate deeply into the skin layers.
Here’s what the treatment entails:
Step 1: Thermo-controlled Radiofrequency
This highly advanced, clinically-proven radiofrequency treatment heats the skin to a temperature that is optimal in inducing collagen stimulation. This results in immediate skin shrinkage, leaving skin instantly tighter.Radiofrequency waves penetrate deep into the sub-dermal and inner dermis layers to stimulate collagen production for a visible increase in skin firmness.
Step 2: Micro-needling Booster
The Eladerm Le DermaBooster is an effective micro-needling device that stimulates the skin deep down to induce the production of collagen and elastin, while allowing topical skincare actives to penetrate deep into the skin for enhanced benefits.
Step 3: Intensive Rejuvenation
The application of the Eladerm CosmeLED Le Sérum, a concentrate of active anti-ageing ingredients, is applied to the skin during the treatment to enhance the regenerating and brightening effects of the aesthetic treatments. This silky, easily-absorbed serum intensively boosts cellular turnover, while the unique inclusion of chlorophyll (a powerful antioxidant) helps to oxygenate and protect skin cells from free radical attack.
Step 4: LED Photomodulation
This painless and non-invasive treatment uses cold light to activate new collagen formation and simultaneously inhibit the breakdown of existing collagen, helping to delay signs of aging. These light waves are able to reach the mitochondria (the heart of skin cells) where they are converted into energy (ATP) that can be assimilated directly by the cells. Fibroblasts get a much-needed boost: the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated, giving new firmness and elasticity to the skin and activating the skin’s deep, regenerative mechanisms.
Step 5: Nourish and Protect
As the finishing touch of the 5-step treatment, the Eladerm CosmeLED La Crème is applied to the skin to nourish, protect and help skin continue its regenerative efforts free from distress. This powerful anti-ageing cream is formulated to firm, lift and restructure skin, while providing intense hydration and antioxidant protection.
So how did I feel about the treatment? Did it do my face any good as promised?
Well, I’ll be completely honest that I had found the 3 days program a tad of a hassle. I mean having to head down to the clinic for 3 consecutive days was kinda rush for me. The radiofrequency treatment was definitely new for me. At the onset, I was worried about the heat–that it might scorch my face. Thank God it didn’t. The micro-needling wasn’t new to me as I’d done it before. In fact, I used one with longer needles.
But the results weren’t astounding for my face. I wouldn’t say the treatment was ineffective. Rather, it wasn’t what I need. However, I did see improvement to my neck. Skin was noticeably tighter and smoother.
You see, my skin is quite firm and whatever wasn’t done didn’t make much difference. I suppose if the treatment had targeted pigmentation or even out complexion, I probably would have more noticeably results. So my conclusion is, if money is to be spent on aesthetic treatments, do ensure you know what you need before you embark on any program.
