I’ve not been sleeping too well lately and been having the worse neck pains when I wake up in the mornings. Really hate having stiff neck, restricts movement & I can’t carry out my daily activities in peace. So when MyVisitDay.com asked if I was interested in attending a trial 60 minute facial or a 30 minute massage session at Spa Collection, I chose massage without thinking!

When I first stepped into Spa Collection at Causeway Bay Plaza 1, I was promptly greeted by friendly staff and they immediately signed me in. Thereafter, a lady showed me around the spa & I was amazed how huge the place was! It’s about 3700 sq. feet in total. It has numerous private massage rooms, 2 toilets, make-up corner, lockers & even a resting area for guests after their treatments.

IMG_2007I find this make up area a great idea as we always have our hair messed up, make-up smudged after a massage. Or even after a facial, you normally want to freshen up a little before leaving the spa. *thumbs-up*

I was showed into my own private massage room and it looked calming and peaceful with dim lighting & soft coloured wall paper.

I quickly changed out of my clothes and snuck a selfie before the treatment started. (who isn’t guilty of Selfies raise your hand!)

Now… I am all ready to start my massage! Before the massage started, the therapist asked which parts of my back hurts the most so that she can concentrate more on those parts. And I told her my neck and shoulder areas hurt the most from my late nights and bad sleep. I lay down on the massage table and the therapist started applying Lanius massage essential oils imported from England. This oil is supposed to help rid your body of water retention and expel toxins deep in your body. After, she used this very interesting looking massage rod called 排酸棒. (See picture below) She explained that this rod creates vibrations while rolling against your tight muscles which gives you a deeper tissue massage as compared to using your hands. It felt really good! Personally I enjoy strong and firm massages because my muscles are always tight and knotted. So this massage rod really did it for me as I could feel my knots loosening.

After 15 minutes, they took a photo of my back which only the left half was given the treatment. Visually, you can tell that the left side already looks slightly smaller and tighter – effects from the Lanius oil & massage rod ridding of toxins through my lymph-nodes. If you’re worried that the red marks caused by the massage rod won’t go away, don’t fret! They disappeared after a few hours for me.

IMG_2020I was happy to see it working so quickly & I could really feel my muscles relaxing. Now I really wished the massage lasted longer than 30 minutes as I could lay there forever and it felt so good! I left the place feeling happy and refreshed and wanting more. (it’s pretty addictive & I love massages!)

Yesterday I underwent my very first laser for my face. I felt that my skin is starting to look tired, freckles on my nose bridge/cheekbone area is becoming more noticeable and my open pores have been bothering me for some time. (My irregular hours & sun damage from scuba diving is probably the cause of it) So I decided to give RevLite a try at Dermacare@ION. I heard rave reviews that after one session you can immediately see a great improvement in skin tone & fairness.

I met up with Dr Dennis Kwan and consulted with him raising tons of questions regarding my skin. From my clogged chin area – is it due to fine facial hairs? – YES. To is there any downtime or side effects with this laser? – NO. After spending about half an hour bombarding him with all my concerns as I’ve never tried laser treatment before and I’m naturally worried. I was ushered to take a before photo of my skin *horror*.

After that I was laid down on the treatment bed, had my sunblock removed & started the laser treatment. The first time the laser touched the skin on my cheek it felt like someone just gently snapped me with a small rubber band! Kinda shocked me a little. But after a while I got used to the sensation and it was like tiny ant bites on my skin which didn’t really hurt. And after 5 minutes I got used to the feeling and it felt like a massage – sore but soothing as the skin warms up as well.

What I am most happy with is that RevLite will also ‘burn’ off the fine facial hairs that cause my pores to be more open & skin more prone to white heads. Something that’s been plaguing me and I’ve tried so hard to battle it. Immediately after the laser, I found my pores tighter, and skin more radiant n fair.

So I decided to sleep over it and take a photo of my bare skin with no make up the minute I woke up this morning. I’m happy! My chin actually seems less clogged and pores definitely smaller. I also found that my eye area less dark. Freckles still look about the same to me. But generally I find my skin a lot smoother than before without a single bit of make up.

So I did up the before after treatment photo and also noticed that I’m slighter fairer! *yay*

Can’t wait to go down for my next treatment and see more improvements on my skin!

XOXO
