Hello everyone, this is my first blog post for 2017 and I’m so glad to be doing a review on my experience with The Urban Clinic. I’ve been working with Dr Yanni since end October 2016 and have been really fortunate to try out a range of TUC’s products and services. Before I begin, here’s a brief introduction of The Urban Clinic.
What is The Urban Clinic (TUC)?
TUC is the expression of Dr Yanni Xu's dream to see many more people benefit from first-class aesthetic treatment.
A Cup of Green Tea Philosophy
Today, aesthetic treatment is fuss-free, painless and affordable. Enjoying clear and luminous skin, a beautifully sculptured face and a defined silhouette is not much more difficult than sitting down for a soothing cup of green tea.
Since I started being active on social media, I’ve gotten the opportunity to work with a number of aesthetic clinics and have experienced various doctors’ treatment styles. But when I arrived the The Urban Clinic, I was immediately greeted with a different experience. The whole clinic was designed with a very modern and slightly edgy theme and it didn’t feel like I was in a clinic at all. The staff were also exceptionally friendly, in a good way =)
After the registration process was completed, I had to take a 3D photo of my face with a Life Viz camera. What this camera could do was really amazing. A 3D image of my face was formed with 3 photos taken in 3 different angles.
We finally met Dr Yanni in her consultation room. I have to be honest, when I first met Dr Yanni, I was thinking to myself..How can anyone have such good complexion??!! I was literally staring at her face throughout the consultation but I couldn’t find a single blemish! #truestory
Okay now back to the 3D camera, what was shown on Dr Yanni’s computer screen was actually a 3D image of my face. And she could literally peel off the layers to see the underlying problems of my terrible complexion.
Dr Yanni was very clear in explaining my current condition and was also patient to answer all my queries. To be honest, I was kind of overwhelmed with the information as all these were totally new to be despite visiting multiple aesthetic doctors. Dr Yanni then prescribed a day and night facial regime, which I followed to a tee.
I was also introduced to a range of quality facial products that were really easy to use and most importantly, it keeps my face clean through the entire day!
Here’s my easy daily facial regime:
AM Wash PM Wash
Step 1: Amino Acid Power Wash Step 1: Amino Acid Power Wash
Step 2: Herbal Balancing Toner Step 2: Herbal Balancing Toner
Step 3: ABC Serum Step 3: Epiduo
And that’s it! Just 3 simple steps every wash and I am able to see some really amazing changes to my complexion. My face became brighter and the condition has gotten a lot more stable. I am usually really prone to outbreaks whenever I travel, but I was shocked to have clear skin throughout my company’s retreat in Bali because I was dirty and sweaty after all the team building games every day.
The next treatment that I saw great results from is called Lasemd.
Introduction to Lasemd
The Urban Clinic’s Signature Korean Lasemd Skin Care Facials (Baby Skin Laser)
LASEMD is a cutting edge cosmeceutical delivery system (CDS) laser based on a 1060nm wavelength. It opens microchannels on skin.
This procedure helps skin to absorb nutrients approximately 5-7 days later, producing superior skin treatment results. It is particularly useful for pigmentation, acne and anti-aging.
1. Heals skin from within
2. No numb cream needed
3. No/ Minimal discomfort
4. Minimal downtime – some pinkness on the skin which eases within a few hours
5. Procedure time 45 – 75minutes
TUC uses the Multi-Nanosome Granulated (MNG) technology to create more effective and relatively free of preservatives and chemicals serums. These unique serum ampoules come in various formulas – Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Tranexamic Acid, Stem cells and Resveratrol.
TUC combine the laser with products such as the TUC Vacuum Mud for the detoxifying of skin and TUC Thirsty Mask which bursts with hyaluronic acid and botanical extracts.
Unlike the conventional Carbon laser treatments I’ve done in the past, which were really painful and had quite a long down time, Lasemd is a comfortable treatment that gives results in just one session.
The remaining ampule was passed to me and I was to apply it every day and night after wash. The ampule contains active ingredients and I could feel good amount of tingling sensation after application.
With a blink of an eye, Limaran and myself have been working with Dr Yanni for close to 3 months. With Dr Yanni’s friendly personality, we have now became friends not only with her, but her husband, Ryan, too.
I was totally blown away by the treatments that are available at The Urban Clinic as well as the professionalism that was shown by every single staff. Thank you everyone, for bringing the amazing glow back to our faces again!
