This RevLite treatment doesn’t come cheap. Each full-face session costs Php 8,000 at Aesthetic Institute of the Philippines (AIP). I know some, if not most, of you are already dismissing the idea of getting this treatment done. I won’t blame you, like I said, it’s not cheap. But for me personally, if I have, say a couple of thousands, to spend on a good set of skincare products, why not save a little more and get RevLite done instead of buying high-end products that may or may not deliver? The results are faster and the procedure has proven to be more effective in removing dark spots than any other high-end products I’ve tried so far.
In rough estimate, I’ve probably spent almost Php 20,000 in minor derm treatments and skincare products in the past 4 months with the hopes of minimizing the appearance of my hideously dark pimple marks.. but obviously, my efforts were futile and money wasted. Now here’s something I’m sure that’ll work. It’s pricey, yes, but it works.. you’ll see. 🙂
Before we get ahead of ourselves, allow me to walk you through the procedure.
Before the procedure, my makeup was removed and my face was thoroughly cleansed. I was asked to wear goggles like that of tanning salons to protect my eyes from the laser. There was no anesthesia to make my feel numb throughout the procedure so I can really feel everything. The doctor’s description as to how the laser would feel like when it touched my skin was indeed very accurate. It was like multiple rubber bands snapping on my skin. It was painful but still tolerable. It smelled as if something was burning which made me worry for a second there but the doctor as well as the nurse reassured me that it was normal. The instrument passed every inch of my face except the eye area and then again on my problem areas.
After doing half of my face, I was handed a mirror to see the immediate difference for myself. It was noticeably lighter than the other half of my face. Apparently, the laser turned my facial hair into somewhat blonde. Our facial hair causes shadows on our face which makes us look darker. So when the facial hair is bleached or removed, you could imagine how this could affect the skin tone, right? After I stared at my reflection in amazement for a few minutes, they started doing the other half.
I was told that the full effect of the RevLite laser could be seen after a week or two. For me personally, I saw noticeable difference after a day. The pimple marks really did lighten – something that could take months to accomplish with my usual skincare products. And the blonde hair, I can effortlessly pluck them right off and some fall off on their own. In less than 3 weeks time, the pimple marks are now hardly noticeable, my skin looks brighter and more radiant and yes, my pores are less visible. I was so impressed with RevLite that I’ve been personally telling my friends about it. It’s incredible! Other than the price, there’s no reason not to love RevLite. *wink!
