Last April, I attended the launch of Wink's newest Revlite Laser Treatment but it only took me last week to try it out for myself at Wink Laser & Wax Studio in BGC. The treatment is also available in their newly opened Trinoma branch, by the way.

Holly Chang explains what Revlite is: "Revlite is a new and revolutionary laser treatment designed to help you achieve smoother skin texture and more even skin tone by treating skin pigmentation, enlarged pores, wrinkles and fine lines, aging skin, and sun damage."

It has several services to address the skin concerns of clients such as follows:
  • Wink Laser Facial - leaves your skin bright and glowing by shrinking pores, fighting oil and active pimples, and improving the appearance of pigmentations. 
  • Complexion Correction - corrects skin tone and texture by reducing pigmentations, pore size, scars, and sun damage. 
  • Age Retrace - stimulates collagen to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and deeper pigmentation. Acne Erase - targeted to fight pimples and reduce deep, embedded acne scars. 
  • Spot Treatment - a deep lightening and tightening treatment on specific areas. 
  • Doctor’s services - pigment removal and tattoo removal done by licensed doctors.

During my own session last week, my therapist discussed the entire procedure of the treatment and the expected results as well as the post-treatment maintenance. She prepped me by cleaning my face and making sure there's no makeup residue left, and also mentally by telling me honestly what to expect.

There’s very minimal discomfort involved such as the mild tingling sensation while the procedure is being done. It's similar to getting flicked by a thin rubber band. After 10 minutes of this, there's a slight burnt smell because it also has an effect on facial hair. It lightens it (think of bleached hair) as the hair sheds in its own in time. Redness is also normal and will subside in a few hours. It only took 15-20 minutes to finish the entire treatment. 

The Revlite machine that can do it all!

Best part is, there's no downtime! You can immediately wear makeup. It's very low-maintenance I must say, except for the part that you need to wear sunblock with at least SPF 30. They also recommend moisturising nightly after the session to avoid dryness.

After four days since my first treatment, I noticed that my skin texture was more even and the appearance of pigmentation lightened. My pimple also that was crazy huge when I went and tried Revlite, dried quickly and has been flat since Day 2. I'm off to my second treatment next week and I can't wait to see better results!

Revlite is available at Wink Laser Studio in BGC High Street Central and Trinoma. Visit their website for more info.
