Alright, back to my skin consultation and customised Dr. Belter skincare treatment ::


At the time when I went for this facial - my skin is kinda normal with a bit of sensitive itchy patches here and there (most around my eyes and inner cheeks) ... so here the scan of my cheek and compare to the scan of the skin near my jaw(which is the area that wasn't irritated). Can see the redness right - so sensitive!!

Shirley, told me that my skin is quite weak hence it gets irritated easily - I need to strengthen my skin so that it won't get irritation easily and have pretty clear skin. Overall, the skin surface was pretty alright - not much skin issue! (Yeah!!!)



Instead of their award winning Bel-Energen skincare line treatment - it's best for me to try out the Anti-irritative repair treatment to calm and relax my skin for a delicatr and irritable skin. (This treatment is suitable for all skin type ; especially nervous, irritated and delicate skin).

Before the treatment
(I do not wear any makeup)

Here's the treatment procedure that Shirley had list it out for me so that I won't have to keep note and simple relax and enjoy the treatment ^_^ (this also explain the lack of pictures of my treatment ... I just wanna experience and enjoy the treatment without thinking about I still haven't take any pictures! kekekeke)


My favourite part would be the ultrasonic equipment used (it's cold and super relaxing - cold because of my sensitive skin - for normal skin is using using the warm setting.) Skin feel so nice!! After finishing my right side, I can see that the side of my face is tighter, fresher and not as reddish as compare to my left side! <3 

I simply look the cold feeling and you know when you skin was irritation .. skin is away warm and prickly ... cold compress always feel so good!! This is way better then masking face with cold towel!

After which she used this little tool to massage the eye's areas to reduce my dark circles and also did acupuncture points massage for my sinus (blocked nose!)  (Didn't do my whole face cos scare that it might irritate my sensitive skin) ... In Chinese we called this massage as "Gua Sha" (刮痧) to stimulates blood flow. 



After ... sharper face (can see the define shape of my chin/jawline.. but my neck is too chubby la! lolx) Brighter skin, less redness and my dark circles were not that obvious now!!

After the treatment, my skin feel quite good for a few days - less irritation and doesn't feel itchy easily!


Received a set of products from the Bel-Energen line - I still haven't try it yet..  I need to wait till my skin is stronger before trying them.
