We tried the Intense Glow Treatment at Estheclinic

I consider myself a pretty diligent person when it comes to skincare. First thing in the morning, I wash my face with an automated silicon brush, apply toner, serum, day cream to top it off and I never leave the house without applying layers and layers of sun cream. Come home and the first thing I do is remove my makeup with cleansing oil then double cleanse with micellar water, but why is it that there seems to be a limit as to how effective skincare can go?


I’ve used countless number of products and tried a number of different facials and treatments in the hopes of permanently getting rid of stubborn whiteheads and reducing scars that leave pigmentation, but it never seems to fully make the pesky acne and uneven skin tone go away. It only goes far as to remove the dirt on the skin surface or sustain a temporary after cleansing glow. So, when I heard about EstheClinic Intense Glow Treatment I was very keen to try it out!

The Intense Glow Treatment is composed of two main steps. First one being Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo-rejuvenation. It uses the clinic’s patented MacPeel IPL technology to brighten, smoothen and refine the skin while also promoting collagen production. The LED photomodulation is then used to delay the signs of aging. Scientifically speaking, the light waves are able to reach mitochondria of the skin to be converted into energy for which production of collagen and elastin is stimulated.

When I got to EstheClinic I noticed how simple and clean the interior was. With a minimalistic furniture layout and white interior complimented by sharp accents of black, it gave off a modern and calming ambience. As I signed in at the counter, I was given a quick client history form to fill in and was later taken into a consultation room to discuss my skin concerns. My skin lies between the spectrum dry and normal with sebaceous white heads on my forehead and acne scarring on my cheeks and temples.


Once everything was ready and good to go, I was escorted to a private spacious room big enough to fit a bed and two big machines. The aesthetician began the treatment by skillfully removing facial makeup and applying thick layers of cool gel to begin the IPL. She started from the cheek to the chin down then to the forehead, moving the handheld device left to right then up and down. Although my eyes were covered, the light was bright enough for me to see the spectrum of light but not enough to feel like I was being paralyzed. It felt something between cool or really hot to the point it felt cool. I wasn’t sure which one it was but the whole process was painless and lasted around 20 minutes.
