VPL Laser Facial Treatment at Atlas Medispa

IMG_7836
Hey everyone!

Will be trying out the VPL (Variable Pulse Light) laser treatment at Atlas Medispa this time round.
It is slightly different from the usual RevLite Laser Treatment that I did.

VPL is able to use 840 different pulse variations and energy output levels. These easily adjustable settings allow doctors to vary the pulse delivery from patient to patient. This allows for maximal comfort and optimal clinical results.

With the advance in technology, pulsed light, and in particular variable pulse light can regularly produce better results than laser. Each light pulse comprises a sequence of rapid shorter pulses. These variable pulses (hence its name), ensures more controlled absorption whilst minimizing heating of the surrounding skin. This means that a greater range of hair and skin types can be safely and effectively treated than was previously possible.

VPL can be used for different functions:
1. Sun & Age Spots (Skin Rejuvenating)
2. Thread Veins, Spider Naevi and Cherry Spots
3. Wrinkles and Fine Lines
4. Acne Scarring
5. VPL for Acne Treatment

More details can be found here: http://www.atlasmedicalclinic.com/art/dermatology/laser-treatments

For my skin, it would be more on skin rejuvenation and a little on acne scarring as I do have a few minor scars on face caused by acne.

The treatment started off with a Silk Peel to remove dead skin cells.

The specialist uses a suction tool to gently remove the dead skin cells.
She uses twisting motions instead of pulling across the face as it is more gentle on the face.

Next is the VPL Treatment.
A clear gel is applied onto the skin and a tool as shown above is used to inject the pulse light into the skin. This process hurts a little but the pain is bearable and might be uncomfortable at certain areas where the skin is thinner.

Lastly, a mask is applied to cool down the skin.

Overall the treatment took about 45 minutes to an hour to complete and here's the after photos.

My skin feels rejuvenated, smoother and brighter in just one session!
The acne scars are slightly reduced as well.

We moved on to the Snow making workshop in Snow World where we get to try making our own artificial snow.
SAM_3222

SAM_3230
It is relatively simple, we just have to add in the liquid to the snow powder and the artificial snow will form within a few seconds! We can even mix in different colors.

Up next was the See, Do & Eat Workshop where we can make our own sushi bento and DIY donuts!
SAM_3242

SAM_3323
The idea of Horizon 50 was conceptualized in line with Genting's Integrated Tourism Plan where the resort wanted to have a one-stop venue to share its history, its amazing scale to current operations and its construction of the many new and future projects with its visitors.

After the tour ended, we had steamboat for dinner at Resort Seafood Restaurant.
SAM_3352
Look at all the yummy food!
Totally in love with the tom yum soup base and the restaurant comes with a huge variety of sauces to choose from to suit your taste.

SAM_3355
Ended off with a Ice-cream steamboat!

Attack on Titans Movie Review

Attack on Titan Live Action Movie Part I

Attack-on-Titan-Live-Action-Movie-Poster

Trailer:

Plot: 100 years ago, titans suddenly appeared on Earth. Soon, human civilization veered on collapse due to the titans. Humans then built a giant wall to defend themselves. Within the giant walls, humans lived in peace, but, 100 years later, the giant wall is broken.

Attack on Titan Live Action movie was released in Singapore on 13 August 2015.
I've heard of this manga ever since a year ago which was highly raved by many people that they made a live action movie.

I have not read the manga before watching the movie but I find that the movie involves a lot of gore scenes like blood splashing everywhere. Like literally EVERYWHERE.
A lot of bloody scenes as the titans feed on humans.
The graphics wise is not what I had expected as I thought it would look like the giant titan that broke down the wall (in the trailer) however it was just humans in giant size.

Rating: 7/10

I would wait for Part II to be out as the trailer seems to be more exciting than Part I

DR SM Yuen @ Atlas Medical Clinic: RevLite Laser Toning 7

Did my 7th RevLite Laser Toning Treatment at Atlas Medical Clinic.

SAM_2917

SAM_2933

SAM_2939
Once in a while my face do pop up a few pimples/acne which leaves me with reddish scars.
I realized that the RevLite Laser treatment, it does help to lighten the scars even faster than usual.
Not only that, my pores do shrink a lot as compared to the first time I came for the laser, my blackheads have reduced significantly as well.

In some of my pictures I might look like I've put on some powder/foundation but actually the laser treatment helps to even out my skin tone a lot so sometimes I just have to put on some concealers and I am ready to leave my house.
All thanks to Atlas Medical Clinic for their wonderful laser treatment :)
