Zap Your Way To Beautiful Skin


If you haven’t had your skin analyzed by a dermatologist yet, I urge you to do so. Having your skin scanned can identify key problem areas that need to be resolved in order to achieve a perfect complexion. A reading of acne, wrinkles, pores, and texture is fascinating, and an in depth study of UV spots, brown spots, broken veins, and deep set bacteria, can help guide you to the correct course of treatment.

Cleansing is paramount to maintaining clear and healthy skin—where there is a build-up of bacteria, there will no doubt be the development of an unsightly blemish. But, what about looking deeper into the layers of the dermis? There can be deep-set bacteria lying dormant under the skin that is responsible for wreaking havoc on the skin’s surface.

After a skin care consultation at the Niranlada Medi-Spa at Chiva-Som in Thailand, I opted for the Bioplasma Facial. This treatment uses a Radio Frequency technology that travels deep into the pores to zap bacteria. As it slides down the hair follicles, it makes an unusual (and rather unsettling) sparking sound that feels like an elastic band is being pinged across your face. Radio Frequency (RF) waves can kill 99% of bacteria that leads to acne, rosacea, and folliculitis. After ten minutes of an RF treatment, your skin will look red and a little patchy, so no post-treatment dinner dates. After a good night’s sleep, you will see immediate results—pores look visibly tighter and your complexion is both more refined and radiant. A series of 3 to 5 treatments is sure to set you on the path to perfect skin, and with fast results and no real downtime, I am ready to book in my next radio frequency facial.
