Since its inception in 2000, JOYRE TCMedi Spa (formally known as Jiale) has incorporated TCM concepts into its skin care treatments and has recently undergone rebranding in early 2016.
JOYRE offers a variety of holistic Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments for both the face and body that focus on promoting good health for men and women.
Typically, a normal spa would provide facials, massages and baths using spa products but JOYRE’s natural treatments are a combination of proven traditional TCM remedies with modern technology, complemented by specially selected Chinese herbs.
Focusing on families, children and pregnant women, JOYRE also provides customised treatments based on the individual’s physical constitution and lifestyle, and manufactures its own range of health and beauty products. They have multiple outlets located all over Singapore for your convenience.
Ancient Bamboo Charcoal Face Therapy | 60 mins
The Ancient Bamboo Charcoal Face Therapy is a laser treatment focusing on skin revitalizing to improve pigmentation, uneven skin tone and dull skin to bring back the glow to your face. This very much reminded me of a Carbon Laser Facial.
Highly raved about by famous Taiwanese celebrity 大S Barbie Hsu, this laser treatment technology hails from Korea.
- Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- Lighten age spots and dark spots
- Tightens and firms skin
- Shrink pores
- Improve elasticity
- Removes blackheads and treats acne
- Deep cleansing of the skin for a soft and dewy complexion
How does the treatment works?
The therapist apply the carbon nano-particles on my entire face and then use the laser machine to blast the concentrated carbon particles on my face. This allows the carbon particles to penetrate deep into the pores to shatter the dirt and deeply cleanse the skin.
The laser’s heat energy allows the carbon powder to be completely absorbed into the dermis layer thereby stimulating the skin cells. This promotes the growth of collagen and elastin for cellular regeneration.
She then massage my neck and shoulders and ended off the facial treatment by applying serum and sunblock on my face.
Moxibustion Womb Care Treatment
This treatment uses moxibustion to remove dampness from the uterus and improve blood circulation, thus stimulating the digestive system and energy (qi) flow for vitality and good health.
I heard from the therapist that this treatment is recommended for women during menstruation too as it relaxes and soothes menstruation cramps. The moxibustion treatment feels nice and warm on my abdomen.
For a person who drink cold water daily, I know I definitely need this womb care treatment to remove the dampness! 🙂
Even though the therapist held the laser a distance away from my face, I could still feel the firing of the laser (like the flicking of a rubber band) on my face and smelled the burnt smell of the carbon particles being blasted.
The therapist told me that if she had held the laser closer to my face, the intensity would increase and I would also see better results. As this was my first time, she decided to go easy on me.
I wouldn’t say that it was exactly a pain-free and extremely comfortable experience and many people would just grin and bear with the slight discomfort to reap the benefits later.
For a person with a low threshold for pain, I rate the pain as 5-6 out of 10 and it was slightly more painful on certain sensitive areas such as the upper lip and under eye areas.
There is one thing I would like to mention. I have this dark pigmentation on the side of my face which has been bothering me for the longest time.
I could feel the laser intensifying at the spot where my pigmentation was and I thought the therapist had tried to target that spot for me.
When I asked her about it, she said that this machine would auto-calibrate its intensity/energy around the face if it detect age spots and pigmentation. This is indeed an advanced laser therapy! 🙂
The treatment did not leave any red botches or marks on my face at all, instead, my skin appeared to be more radiant and luminous just after one session. My dark eye circles also improved and my skin tone was brightened.
So considering the slight discomfort I felt, this is the small price for beauty any women would find it is worth paying for. 🙂
