No matter your age or gender, your body’s largest organ is your skin.
If you want your skin (especially on the face) to look its best and stay healthy, you need to take care of it. If your body and face needs some serious pampering, or you just want to make yourself glow, then this is the article for you. There is a time when i didn't take good care of my skin and shit happened. Now, i will not let my skin down anymore. Hahaha, Let's work hard for a better skin together.
As you all know, acne scars are my my biggest skin concern. I will do whatever i can do heal my skin. I did skin lasers, the one with downtime and the minor one, i apply masks almost every night. But still, i know it is not enough…My skin tend to be dry and itchy sometimes. I'm not sure whether it is too dry, due to bacteria, or pore congested ( because i apply make-up too often). So i decided to go for facials, i guess it is about time to give my skin a pamper session. So yea :D
Regular facial not only stimulates circulation and removes dead skin to reveal a healthier, hydrated and radiant complexion. It also provides physiological and psychological benefits. Then i was introduce to Bella Skin Centre, which is located in The Intermark, KL. So why not?
Bella also uses the most up-to-date technologies and techniques in beauty care, and is constantly enhancing and expanding its exclusive range of professional skincare services.
All Bella Skin Care centres are staffed by qualified skincare experts equipped with the latest developments (no kidding about this because I am about to tell you why)
The waiting area, felt like home to me.

The treatment room
The VIP changing room.
For a start, I had skin consultation with a Bella consultant regarding my skin concerns. You know what, All Bella treatments are personalised to suit each client’s individual needs and up-to-date dermatological technologies are used.
It is really important to know our own skin before our skin undergoes any treatment to get the best results for our skin.
So the Bella consultant used a 3D skin analysis machine to analyse my skin, where it can see all the pores, my skin type and my skin concerns.
According to the consultant, my skin is dry on the outside and the pores are oily inside.
Therefore, I need a lot of hydration :P

After the analysis, I was recommended to do the AquaDew Pro treatment.
The AquaDew Pro skin resurfacing technology is the latest treatment from Bella Skin Care. It provides non-invasive exfoliation and delivery of exclusively formulated serums to renew, exfoliate and hydrate, giving skin an overall luminous glow.
The treatment features three serums targeted at different skin types − Skin Clarifying Serum, Antiseptic Serum and Antioxidant Serum.
I was told the Skin Clarifying Serum is suitable for almost any skin types except hypersensitive and acneic skin. The serum contains key ingredients such as lactic acid, algae extract, glucosamine HCL, yeast extract and green tea extract that help in detoxifying, calming and improving the skin’s elasticity.
For example, the algae extract has detoxifying properties, glucosamine HCL is of marine source and is calming and improves skin elasticity, yeast extract hydrates and firms skin, and green extract is anti-oxidant and anti-ageing. The serum’s key ingredients deep cleanse and soften impurities, sebum and dead cells of the skin.
The Antiseptic Serum is targeted at oily and acne-prone skin. It contains tea tree extract, BHA salicylic acid, honey extract and spiraea ulmaria extract which help in reducing acne breakouts, lightening acne marks as well as softening and moisturising the skin.
The tea tree extract has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, salicylic acid has exfoliating properties for acne-prone skin, honey extract softens and moisturises, and spiraea ulmaria extract is anti-inflammatory. Their key actions are to deep cleanse and help reduce breakouts for oily and acne-prone skins, and lighten marks.
Last but not least is the Antioxidant Serum that contains aloe vera juice, hyaluronic acid, green tea extract, vitamin B5, vitamin E and rosemary leaf extract to fight free radicals and provide long lasting hydration. Aloe vera contains multiple nutrients for good skin, hyaluronic acid with its low molecular weight is ideal for deep dermal hydration
Aloe vera contains multiple nutrients for good skin, hyaluronic acid with its low molecular weight is ideal for deep dermal hydration while vitamin B5 regulates sebum and speeds up healing, and vitamin E is a strong antioxidant as well as heals wounds. Rosemary leaf extract has purifying and toning properties.
AquaDew Pro treatment is safe, non-invasive and is done in a comfortable manner with no downtime.
After changing into the treatment gown and settling down in my assigned therapy room
It is so comfortable and chilling. I felt so pampered to be there.
Here’s how AquaDew Pro works on my skin
The specific serum is delivered to the skin through the Aqua Spiral Tip, which is designed in a spiral shape with multiple abrasive edges. This means that the skin is being gently exfoliated several times as the tip is moved over the skin in a gliding motion during serum application.The AquaDew Pro treatment also employs the spiral vortex technology and pneumatic pressure. The spiral vortex technology helps in dislodging and clearing of impurities, thereby minimising extraction work that gives the client a pain-free facial experience. Meanwhile, the pneumatic/compressed pressure, alongside the gliding motion of the spiral tip, promotes lymphatic drainage to help in eliminating stagnant fluids and toxins to reduce puffiness in the face and give the skin a slight toning effect.
The treatment took around 2 hours to complete. You know what, I don’t really go for facial before this because I don’t like the extraction. But this time, it was really effortless because the machine itself did help to clear the dead skin and unwanted blackheads and whiteheads and it was totally PAINLESS! It was more like a spa therapy for my skin. I literally fell asleep during the mask session because it was too comfortable. It has been a while I never really pamper my skin. I think I should to do this more often to give my skin some pampering and relaxation..
Here's a photo of my naked face right after the treatment. I can feel my skin is so much smoother and moisturised after that. Overall, I love the soothing effects the most, which help to reduce my skin redness right after the treatment! Yay, I should do this more often now on!
