What: The TWC Luminous Treatment ($4,173 for 6 sessions), from The Wellness Clinic, is a quick fix for dull skin. It involves a combination of Dual Yellow laser treatment and radiofrequency technology.

Tried-and-tested: “Recently, my skin had been looking a little tired and I also noticed the appearance of tiny dark spots.

After a detailed consultation with The Wellness Clinic’s Dr Ram, it was thankfully concluded that any sun damage on my skin was mild.

Before the treatment commenced, a numbing cream was applied to my skin so as to ensure comfort even with the various lasers used.

The hour-long session kicked off with microdermabrasion to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells before radiofrequency was used to tighten skin, improve elasticity, and stimulate collagen production.

Following that, Long Pulsed Yag laser was applied to my skin via a hand piece to tighten open pores. Next, the Dual Yellow laser was used to reduce redness and pigmentation. Finally, a fruit acid peel was applied to gently exfoliate skin.”

Verdict: “Immediately after the treatment, a slight redness was visible on my cheeks due to increased blood flow to the area. This subsided in less than half an hour. Later on, my skin had a nice glow to it.”
