My guest blogger has tried out the Charcoal Black Doll Face Advanced Facial Laser treatment recently and this is her review.

Charcoal-Black Doll Face 黑脸娃娃Advanced Facial Laser Therapy  - by Ling

I’ve had a chance to try the Charcoal Black Doll Face Advanced Facial Laser treatment recently. Highly recommended by Taiwanese celebrity Barbie Hsu, the treatment is touted to revitalise and bring back glow and youthful brightness to your skin. I made my facial appointment at JL Beauty Wellness Spa’s Novena Square 2 outlet (#04-05). I went for the treatment with hopes to improve my dull, tired-looking skin with open pores, dark spots and expression lines.

Benefits of the laser treatment and how it works

The treatment is suitable for all ages. It promises to lighten age spots and dark spots, fade freckles, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, shrink pores, and remove blackheads and acne. It also lifts and tightens/firms skin, improves elasticity, moisturises and gives a bright and dewy complexion.

The principle behind the black doll treatment is that carbon powder possesses strong capacity to absorb dirt deep in the pores. The face (and neck) is first coated with carbon nano-particles. Next, laser is used on the skin. The medical graded laser allows the particles to penetrate deep into pores, shattering the epidermal keratinocytes and dirt. The heat from the laser also enables the carbon powder to be absorbed into the skin, stimulating the skin cells. Regeneration occurs by encouraging growth of collagen and elastic fibres.

The experience and service

I sat down with Wendy, my therapist, for a chat before the treatment to understand more about it and what it does. She is friendly, very knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable. She assured me that the treatment would feel prickly but not painful, and I would not leave the salon with redness or skin irritation.
Wendy started off the treatment with a facial – cleansing my face, using hot steam to open my pores and performed extraction. Next, she massaged my eyes, face, neck and shoulder with essential oil. Then it was time to try the laser treatment. After placing the carbon on my face, she put some on my hand and activated the laser to let me test and get used to it. Then she applied the laser on my face. I thought the laser felt like ant bites. It was not painful, but needed getting used to.

Using the laser on my face
After the treatment, my face was cleaned and a gold collagen mask was placed on my face. That’s not all—I also had an eye mask and a neck mask, which I have never tried before. The gold masks felt cool and had hydrating, firming and stabilizing effect. While the masks were on, Wendy gave me a head and arms/hands massage. She placed a hot herbal pillow under my neck. It was the ultimate relaxing experience, to get massaged with the smell of herbs and soft music in a softly lit place.

My Gold Look-I felt very rich :P
After the mask was removed and sunblock was put on my face, I took a look at the results and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the treatment was all that it promised. My open pores were smaller, the dark spots around my chin area lightened, the expression lines at my nasolabial folds (nose to mouth area) were less obvious. My face brightened, lightened and looked radiant. Take a look at the pictures below to compare the before and after:

Afterthoughts

All in all, I am very satisfied the Charcoal Black Doll Face Advanced Facial Laser treatment. I am also very impressed with JL’s service and their attention to the tiniest details: asking if I was cold, chatting with me, reassuring me that the treatment is not painful, and serving tea at the end. I am also glad that this treatment includes attention to the neck and arms/hands massages.

The treatment is available at all 4 JL outlets (Bishan, Toa Payoh, Square 2, Sengkang). The trial price (50% off) of S$190 includes a facial and advanced laser treatment. The whole process for both facial and laser treatment takes around 90 minutes. For more information, please call or visit their website: http://www.jiale-beauty.com/
