The Dr Dream Experience
Dr Dream Treatments Testing Laser Peel and LTTT Treatments
Recently I was offered a well deserved beauty treatment courtesy of Dr Dream, Essendon’s premier cosmetic treatment centre.
This was a great opportunity to road test some of the treatments I’d normally not been able to explore.And the fact I could quite possibly chisel off years in the process was more than enough to entice me.
Being part of the beauty industry I know first and foremost how important one’s appearance is, looking fresh faced and youthful 24/7 is a must.This becomes prevalent when I meet people for the first time or they stumble across my images via social media.First impressions are often times very powerful and play a crucial role during negotiations or engagement opening up important dialogue and networking opportunities.Regardless,everyone can benefit from looking fresh faced and youthful whether you’re in the social lime light like me or just like to keep your skin looking fabulous.
Dr dream first opened its doors in Melbourne 2012 offering the latest technologies from Korea with unique treatments tailor made for your skin type.Currently Korea is the world’s leading experts in cosmetic beauty treatments from the major to the minor and it was now time for Australia to share in the secrets of eternal youth from the masters.Dr Dream is an ever expanding venture with a bright vision for the future educating all of us about the skin we are in.
The location of the clinic is easy to find being located close to Moonee ponds and a stone’s throw from highpoint at 211A Buckley Street Essendon it has off street parking and Bus options via public transport.
Entering the clinic I did not know what to expect.The first thing I noticed though was the large volume of clients this place sure was busy with people from all walks of life.The customer service is another point worth mentioning as it was very good at providing a warm welcoming vibe.
The clinic is well lit clean and modern radiating a gently “feng shui” flow making the old and new feel immediately at ease.
After a short wait I was taken to the consultion room where I meet Anla Tan the owner operator of Dr Dream Australia who proceded to discuss my various skin concerns and what kind of treatments I would benefit from the most.Im glad Anla was so transparent and honest with me on which improvements I needed because lets face it you cant improve anything if sugar coat the truth.
We eventually culminated an attack strategy opting for the Laser peel and Led light therapy.I felt like Anla was my personal trainer at a Skin Gym,and like any Gym there are no cheap and nasty shortcuts to getting great long lasting results.
Anla is not just a strong business women who talks the talk but she also walks the walk knowing all there is to know about skin rejuvenation with it being very much part of her own story after suffering a major car crash.
Anla has a inspirational story about her road to recovery after a near fatal car accident reminding me of my own accident from which I’m still suffering today.In which she lost a large portion of her mobility and beauty ,something you would never believe unless you saw the pictures of her accident yourself.
The recovery she underwent was about to turn the western medical establishment on its head defying doctors prognosis of not being able to walk as soon as she did or look as she once did again.
Laser Skin Peel-
Laser skin peel uses a Spectral laser wand which I’m told is great for removal of skin pigmentation, fine lines and scarring,with lasting results.
As I lay waiting in the treatment room the butterflies in my stomach began to play in anticipation of having my brand new baby fresh skin.
Prior to the laser procedure the face is lightly cleansed and cleaned then application of a carbon face mask which is a key component that reacts with the frequency of the two types of lasers.
This in turn stimulates healthy collagen production and tightens skin.Here’s the procedure in action–
After the laser treatment the application of an ice pack followed by the DR Dream Rose mask is needed which cools and regenerates the affected area thus avoiding that dreaded red raw shiny face look!
No downtime so no one will be the wiser to your amazing laser peel antics!Except for the glowing skin, you could even get it done during your lunch break!
In the past my usual microdermal facials have left me looking like I walked into a car wash naked.Thankfully this time is the exception.
- Does it hurt? As the laser hit certain parts of my face(mainly my large pore zones) I did feel slight pain that was quick lasting,but trivial in comparison to waxing.The pain is reminiscent of tiny electrical static flicks.
- How Long? Takes approx 1hr
- Down time? None you leave and you’re good to go with fresh smooth skin after the treatment Anla foundation is applied,which has a SPF in it to protect your fresh new skin from the suns damaging UV light.It is a light foundation that gives the appearance of wearing nothing at all.
- Is it worth it? Yes 100% my skin was glowing smooth like velvet, It honestly looked and felt younger and more refined.
(LLLT) or Low-Level Light Therapy
This unique procedure uses coloured light wavelengths that heal your skin and bones on a subcellular level promoting faster healing and also giving relief from arthritic conditions and muscular pains.
- Does it hurt? Not at all
- Down time? The only downtime is getting the procedure done, typical treatment time approximately 30 mins
- How often? To receive the full benefits of the (LLLT) light therapy it is recommended to have 1-2 treatments per week
- Is it worth it? Yes,I immediately felt the healing properties take effect with the first 24hrs.Not needing to take any painkillers until 4pm the next day! Truly amazing as i take very strong medication frequently to alleviate my arthritic conditions.Not only that I slept like a baby which I’m told is also a characteristic of the therapy itself.
I tried the light therapy not only on my face but on my knees and lower back where I’ve suffered continuous chronic pain for over a year now.Only people with chronic pain will understand that even several hours pain free is life changing.
Using the LLLT worked and for good reason it apparently heals the body on a cellular level penetrating deep below the many layers of skin.Prior to the LLLT treatment I had been seeing a physio for years as well as a knee specialist each making me feel more alone and helpless to the whims of my pain.
All treatments at Dr dream are accompanied with there custom range of beauty products of which I choose Rose.
These are massaged into your face neck and shoulders with several skin replenishing agents/oils making you feel like a cat relaxing in the sun.
When Anla’s competent team had finished working their magic I could not help but stare continuously at my skin in the mirror it really did look amazing,granting me my lost confidence to go ‘au natural and only needing light mascara.
My mother is not one to hold back from the truth and told me via Facetime “you have the skin of a doll”serving only as a testament to how awesome Dr Dream is.The skin treatment is unparalleled to any other I have had before.
Anla is a professional standing on her front foot with the latest beauty techniques to keep us all radiant & healthy she tells me each person who comes in is as important as the next caring about everyone who sees her. She is akin to me believing in what she does channeling her love and enthusiasm into her dream.
She also got me onto using her Dr dream Rose skincare range from korea.Did i mention the packaging is blush pink with rose gold!
Let’s not pretend that packaging is unimportant,sure I want skincare to do the job but I also want it to look good in my bathroom not like a weird topical cream that doctors would prescribe.
So Can you turn back the clock with Laser?I think so
I will be making a series of follow up blogs tracking my progress,looking at various other treatments.
Thankyou Dr dream you have made a difference in my life 🙂
