Desire Aesthetics @ Central Review

I went up to Desire @ Central by referral of my dear friend and was hooked on some of the treatments that I have personally undergone. Oh yes, I signed up again. (Sigh, I should just be a premier customer for all things beauty.) My main concerns are mainly my acne, my ever oil-producing sebum and panda rings.

Treatments that I have personally tried and tested.....

For Radio frequency (Eyes only)

-          warm sensation that tightens the eye areas and some of my laugh lines (ok, fine crow lines)
-          increase blood circulation which reduces the dark eye rings to a lighter shade
-          firm up the eye area and freshen up your windows of soul
-          Definitely effective for me but maintenance and discipline required (meaning intensive treatments and sleep early!!!)

Micodermabrasion (Face only)

-          a magic wand to remove black and white heads and top layer of the outer skin giving you a instant clear and smooth, even tone, fairness result. This would also allow for better absorption for any lotion after that since the pores are unclogged from dirt and oil sebum. It is definitely a necessity for clearing out all other necessary evil in my opinion. Must try!!

Acne Treatment Facial (Face only)

-          using formulated Acne Solution with machine that stimulates waves to help your skin to fully absorb the solution quickly.
-          Cold treatment gel is applied and spread over with Meso Cold Handle before Acne cold mask is applied.
-          Thereafter, you can snooze to the cozy ambience

IPL Acne Treatment (Face only)

-          Light treatment that promises to penetrate into the deeper layers to reduce rid bacteria from face that causes inflammation of acne.
-          Tingling sensation as if patting on the face (thou in my opinion, slightly painful as I have super low threshold of pain.)

Results of their skincare treatments

I find their signature treatment of Micro dermabrasion and RF for Eyes a must try as these have been proven to be the most effective for me. I can immediately see the visible difference after the first treatment, hmmm which was why I signed up for the package.

The Acne treatment facial was initially effective for me the first few times but subsequently it doesn’t seemed to work and my bumps (die-hard acne deep beneath the skin layers) still co-exist with me though they didn’t really pop up.

IPL Acne treatment was kind of painful for me and I resist doing it every time due to the “patting” of my face ( I felt slapped a thousand times -_- ) . It did not work for me as my bumps didn’t disappear as it should have since it is supposed to penetrate further into the skin layers. It could also be due to my hormones imbalance or stress levels though. Personally, I didn’t really like this as I can rest whilst having a “facial” and I don’t see my expected results for this.

  1. Hi June,

    I feel like trying but am worried that they might hardsell.

  2. Hi Vuvie,
    No worries, most places do but they are not very pushy in my opinion haha perhaps cause I am a sales person too.
    Not sure if it would help, but you see if it helps to say you would like to try out first and if you see effective results, you will definitely come back since it works for you?

  3. People shouldn't make a lot of issue when it comes to men getting cosmetic treatments. Just because they are undergoing the said treatments doesn’t mean that they are gay.
