[Wedding Prep] My 5 Stars Experience with Avante Facial and Spa

Every girl wants to look their best during their wedding day: Things to do 1-2 weeks before the wedding:

– Trimmed brows
– Tamed Hair
– Refresh hair color
– Manicure and Pedicure
– Radiant skin?!
– Angelic figure??!!

Good skin and a slim, toned figure just won’t happen in 2 weeks! In fact, it will take months in order to achieve them!   I am happy to be picked up by Avante Aesthetique Face, Body and Yoga to help me prepare for my big day. Their unique philosophy and vision of providing best-in-class services catering to inner and outer beauty gave me confidence that with only 5 months left to my wedding date (I am a late Bridezilla bloomer indeed…), I will still be able to achieve radiant looking skin and Yoga into a slimmer and toner version of me! Keep on reading till the end for a mouth watering, unpreceded promotion!

A warm welcome by Avante Staff

Today, I am going to talk about my facial experience with their Nano Laser Treatment. The treatment is a deep cleansing and non-invasive laser facial therapy using nano charcoal cream for better penetration. It targets my trouble areas, dry, oily skin with open pores by controlling excessive oil secretion, stimulating collagen, minimizing pores, reducing fine lines and improving skin tone. The treatment also treats hyper pigmentation, helps in overall firmness and radiance of skin.

Love their home-made ginger tea!

Upon arrival, I was served with a hot towel and a warm cup of home-made ginger tea. The ginger tea has calming properties that helps lower stress and tension. I was also told it can help improve stomach performance, reduce inflammation and improve blood circulation. The strong aroma from the tea cleared my mind and instantly made me fell more relaxed. With the hot towel pressed against my neck, I closed my eyes and let go of the day’s thoughts and stress ^.^ The last time I experienced such service was at a 6 star hotel!

Just enjoying my tea 🙂

While sipping my tea, my beautician came over to take a good look at my current skin condition and asked about my current concerns. As I just came back from overseas, I was suffering from skin reactions due to climate change. I also had open pores issues as well as some bad acne bumps that formed on the right side of my cheeks. After that, I was lead into their facial room and given a robe to change out.

Calm and cozy room

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love their relaxing and brown cozy colour scheme! The pillows are firm and comfortable, definitely not those cheap flat types that some neighbourhood facial centres use. The blanket is also a quilt cover type – so comfy! Each room is also fitted with everything you need – mirror, sink with soap, contact lens solution and cases, hanging hooks and a cabinet for your clothes, bag and other belongings. I felt like I have just booked a hotel room!

All tucked in and ready for my spa and facial experience

Before the facial begins, I was treated with a round of relaxing de-stress message. The beautician first rubbed some essential oils over her hands and moved them over my face. Love the scent (Got to ask them what they use!) She then proceeds onto a chest, face and neck message, softly telling me when to breathe in and out. I felt all my muscles let go of any tensed up feeling and my body relaxing into the softness of the bed.

By then I was already starting to fall asleep 😛 The beautician started cleansing and a heads up – this is the VERY FIRST TIME I AM BARING MY NAKED FACE ON MY BLOG.

Even cleansing also so shiok… cleansing and messaging at the same time.

The first step of the Nano Laser Treatment is to apply charcoal cream. The charcoal cream will help to remove dirt and impurities deep within the pores and have dis-infecting properties too, perfect for my troubled skin. After which, a non-invasive (meaning non burning and no blood) laser treatment will be used on the cream for deep penetration. I found it really amazing how the charcoal cream disappeared into my skin with every laser light pulse!

2 Big Acne still there but alittle dryer and less painful after the treatment. The Acne really went down by alot following the next 3 days.

The other side – smoother skin

After the treatment, I was treated to yet another indulging neck, shoulder, back and arms message! A hot towel was placed under my neck (feels really really good – shattered me into a million pieces!!!) and the very experienced beautician worked her way from the temples of my head, down my neck to the shoulder and then worked on both my arms all the way to each and every finger. She has a very good sense of the body and what’s going on – occasionally asking at the beginning if the massage was too hard or too soft to have a better understanding of my preference. Having been to some other professional spa experiences, I can definitely say that the beautician skills are definitely on par with these professional spa centres!

So relaxed I fell asleep >.< Next, I was given a Collagen Crystal Mask with oil control properties to help with my skin troubles. On top of the high collagen content and skin balancing effects, the mask also helps even out skin tone and whitening! It’s jelly like texture was cooling and super soothing. With a scented compression bag placed on top of my eyes, I slept through most part of it too 😛

Extremely relaxed by the end of the session , with a contented smile on my face!

After the mask, the beautician applied toner, moisturiser and sunscreen. At the end of the facial and after getting dressed up, the next thing that comes to every girl’s mind is to tidy up our hair! No worries at all at Avante, they even have a hair dryer for styling!
