Unlike the girls who habitually take care of their skin, I never had a proper facial treatment or skin checkup in my entire life. Though I am always worried about my skin because of its over sensitivity and the redness around my cheeks, but this always ended up googling about it and getting the false alerts. I went to several renowned dermatologists in Islamabad and they recommended some expensive medication including tablets few face creams but without any proper examination. Some of them said its because of the stomach issues and some doctors suggested that your hair issues are spreading on your face. But what was exactly my skin issue?
I finally got an opportunity to get my skin properly checked from certified people at Passions salon located in Diplomatic enclave Islamabad. My visit was an invitation by an Islamabad Based eminent PR company, Constantine PR. I was invited to an inauguration tea party for the bloggers and an opportunity to know about a suitable skin regime and the right products.
Passions salon is a new class of international Salon that has emerged with high-design decor and luxe amenities. I was welcomed by the CEO and Founder of the Passions Salon Mr. Muhammad Shahzad Bhatti. Mr Shahzad is an entrepreneur and pioneer of the Beauty Industry in Pakistan. He has substantial experience of working with Dermalogica, loreal, wella, keune, Brunovassari and Cholley Isabelle Lancray. He is a certified Diplomat cosmetologist so he knew pretty deep stuff 😀
I saw this on Salon’s Wall
So I gave Mr Shahzad my brief introduction and a detailed introduction of my Skin :P, He sort of got the idea how confused I was and he gave me a form to fill. The form included a medical history or things we have to tell a doctor before a treatment (pretty Professional it is). Then he took me to the coolest area of the salon that was called the “Hair and Skin Bar” , I had a face mapping test in which the 14 zones of my face were carefully analyzed.
Based on the analysis he assigned me a therapist named Shereen (That’s her nickname I forgot her real name :D) to whom he gave some instructions (Customized skin treatment) for the session.
So finally I got the answer for my skin, I basically have rosacea, that’s some skin condition in which you get facial redness, in my case it’s on cheeks causing burning and stinging sensations. But the previous doctors made it more dramatic (It’s not a big deal- Seriously 😀 ).
I was already using few products of Dermalogica from their Ultra Calming range that was bringing some positive results. But this time it was a little more and a little professional. A 5 step calming therapy to see the results.
The staff is pretty friendly and they give you services with great generosity and warmth. I literally felt at home.
My therapy included Ultra Calming cleansing, Ultra Calming exfoliation, Ultra Calming toning, Ultra Calming moisturizing and after good 30-40 minutes it ended up with a layer of Ultra Calming serum over dermalogica’s sunblock. The session was so relaxing the therapist was pretty nice and friendly.
After the session I realized that my skin was calm now. The red patches were gone and my skin was literally breathing and feeling light as if I have taken a heavy load off it.
If you crave pampering in plush surroundings and you really need a skin therapy without any bleaching or skin lightening products than Passions Salon is the right place.
Before leaving I bought some Dermalogica products (Ultra Calming Kit). So that I can use them later on, and yes I got a lot of discount cards as well 😀
To every girl it’s my recommendation to visit Passions Salon once, and you will never make any other choice for your skin treatment. #StayChic
