What you need to know about Revlite Laser
I've been having my laser treatment at Wink Laser Studio for over half a year now, and I swear, hair barely grows on my legs and pits after five sessions! My life is easier knowing that I can wear whatever I want without worrying if I look like a sasquatch (no offense to sasquatches though, I'm sure they are awesome). I think I'm due for one last session until the hair is all gone indefinitely.
Anyway, I'm excited to enjoy that kind of freedom - on my face. I mean, imagine not having to wear concealer or foundation anymore because your skin is completely blemish and wrinkle-free. Imagine not having to spend a lot of time brushing and layering on the ironic "no makeup" makeup. Well, it's possible with laser today. Wink Studio's latest laser facial, Revlite, is now available in the Trinoma branch! While it is expensive, it's not as expensive as you might think.
I worked on launching Wink's Revlite treatment to the press and bloggers a few weeks back. Our magazine friends were there, and of course, our favorite online personalities. Holly Chang, the founder of Wink, and dermatologist Dr Angela Castro were there to talk about the new service. The very funny Karrots Nazareno also hosted!
So what is Revlite, exactly? It's a laser treatment that stimulates and rejuvenates collagen in your skin with short pulses of light. The increase in collagen gives skin a youthful glow, a smoother texture, and a more even skin tone. Enlarged pores, pimples, scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and even pigmentations from birth marks and sun damage are especially targeted by Revlite.
What does it feel like? There’s very minimal discomfort involved: most people simply get a mild tingling sensation, similar to getting flicked by a thin rubber band. I tried it on my arm and it's a bit warm, like an electric current passing over my skin. It's definitely not painful but it is a weird feeling that would need a bit of getting used to.
It also removes facial hair and whitens armpits! Revlite treats sunken areas of the skin as well as pigmentation, right, but it has the added benefit of turning your femstache white and eventually removing them completely (with regular sessions). Cool! It's also great for lightening dark under arms - if you're thinking of upgrading from tawas and bleaching, Revlite is the answer.
How many sessions do you need and how long does each of those take? A Revlite session takes about 15-20 minutes and has zero downtime. Your skin will just get a little red, but it's not going to feel sore or anything. You can come back every two weeks, and 6-10 sessions are suggested for you to get the maximum benefit.
How much? Ahhh, the zinger. It's P7,000 a session, or P15,000 for three sessions at Wink Laser Studio. I suggest getting the three sessions as it's simply more practical. People have reported seeing instant results after only just one session but it's best to do it consistently for more permanent results.
I haven't tried Revlite on my face yet but I will report back to you when I do. :) Currently only Wink's Trinoma branch carries the machine, so please do visit there if you're interested!
Do you think you'll be investing in Revlite soon?
