We Tried the Clear & Brighten Treatment & We Loved It!

My sister is so different than I, from personality to looks.  While I am a “scaredy cat” about trying all the new beauty technology, she already is a fan of all laser treatments, laser hair removal, laser scar removal, and she is also thinking about getting a tattoo lately!  (I know, we both are very, very slow even to think about a tattoo —  I am even slower, maybe it would never happen to me.). So, before she went back to China after visiting us for a few months, she wanted to go explore the latest popular beauty tech in the U.S. Recommended by a Chinese friend, we went to the New Life Wellness Spa in Pasadena.

妹妹和我有着不同的性格和外表。当我还在担心、害怕尝试各种美容新技术的时候,她已经是激光美容的粉丝了:激光脱毛、激光祛斑等等,她最近还想着去纹身!!(我知道,对于纹身我们俩都落后了,我甚至连想都没想过,估计这辈子我都不会去纹身)妹妹来美国和我们一起生活了几个月后马上就回中国了,所以在她回国前,她想去体验一下目前美国最流行的美容技术,于是我们去了一家由朋友推荐的位于Pasadena的新生命健康水疗中心。



After we checked out all the services they have, my sister decided to try their “Beauty IV drip” before getting a “Clear & Brighten” treatment, and I decided to try something while I was waiting. — the Super IV Drip.  I take my daily vitamins without fail because I believe my body needs all the right vitamins to keep me healthy and feeling good.  We take our health pretty seriously in our family!  The “Super IV drip” comes with vitamins, electrolytes, and antioxidants that will help to make a healthy body and lifestyle.   If you haven’t heard about these IV drips before, neither had I!  But before I went for it, I did some checking of my own to learn more about it.

Here is some information — benefit and risk —  about the IV drip treatment that I learned from USNews:…””It works because if you look at vitamins and minerals, along with hormones and other chemicals in the body, these are the body’s building blocks; they’re our body’s natural pharmacy, and they’re used in numerous physiological pathways.”  It went on, “What you put in your body controls how your cells function at the cellular level, and when your cells are working properly, your organs are working properly, and when your organs are working properly and optimally, your overall health improves.”  With that and some other information, I decided to go ahead with the Super IV drip.

在我们详细了解了他们所有的项目后,妹妹决定尝试做一个“美容维生素点滴”和“亮白肌肤”治疗。而我选择了做一次“超级维生素点滴”。我每天都坚持服用维生素,我自己其实蛮相信说人的身体每天需要各种维生素以维持营养健康,保持自我感觉良好。我们家的每一个人都很注重健康养生是真的。这个“超级维生素点滴”包含有各种维生素、电解质、抗氧化剂,有助于身体健康,是很好的一种生活方式。如果你和我一样之前都没听说过维生素点滴,那就学学我吧,在接受维生素点滴前上网去搜集了解一下相关的信息。以下是我从美国新闻网查到的关于维生素点滴注射的一些信息,包括优点和风险。“如果你正在为你的身体寻求维生素和矿物质,以及身体内的激素和其他的化学物质,而这些都是构建身体所必需的。这些物质是我们身体的天然药房,众多的生理途径都需要这些物质。他们控制着你身体里细胞的功能是否正常;当身体的细胞工作正常时,你的器官就能正常工作;当你的器官正常工作时,你就能感受到你的整体健康状况得到了改善。那么维生素点滴注射是有效果的”。通过了解到了以上的信息,我决定尝试维生素点滴注射。



Here’s how it affected me.  I immediately felt refreshed and my body felt lighter during the IV drip process, to be honest.  It took about 20 minutes.

Now let’s get back to my sister’s “Clear & Brighten” Treatment.  It’s actually a laser treatment for the face.  The nurse told us that my sister might get red and swollen after the treatment. but she didn’t feel any pain at all because they did put some good numbing cream on before the treatment started.  Thirty minutes later, she was done and it was hard to see any redness or swelling, except a little slight swelling under the eyes.

现在说说我的切身感受吧。点滴的整个过程大概需要20分钟,在注射过程中,老实说我立即感觉整个人轻松不少,焕然一新!

接下来我们来谈谈妹妹的“亮白肌肤”治疗吧。实际上这是一项针对脸部的激光技术。护士告诉我们说在接受“亮白肌肤”治疗后脸部会有轻微的红肿,但妹妹在治疗当中并没有感觉到任何的疼痛,因为工作人员在治疗开始前给妹妹用了少量的具有镇痛作用的面霜。治疗的过程大约30分钟,治疗结束后妹妹除了眼睛轻微的肿胀外,脸部几乎看不到任何的红肿。



We expected to see her face got darker and red, but we could barely see even any pink after Day 2.  In fact, my sister went out on a date after only 24 hours, and just used some light make-up in the area where she had the “Clear and Brighten” treatment. She went out for a date after 24 hours, and she did apply some light make up. “When I touch my face, the skin feels like sand,” my sister said, but I couldn’t see anything different; although when I used my fingers to touch her face, I could feel that sensation, too. (P.S. the “sand” sensation is a normal in day 3 and day 4, and it will be gone in a couple days.)

我们都以为妹妹的脸在治疗后会变暗变红,但第二天我们发现几乎看不到任何的痕迹,甚至连微微发红都没有。而且在接受了“亮白肌肤”治疗的24小时后,妹妹只在脸上稍微的打了些粉就出去约会了!妹妹还告诉我:“我的脸摸上去像沙子一样!”我看她的脸时看不出任何的不同,只有用手去摸妹妹的脸才能感觉她所说的磨砂感。(磨砂感现象是正常现象哦,一般4/5天后会逐步散去。)



At Day 3, my sister and I went to a fashion event together, and I didn’t notice any pinkness on her skin, but it still had a little of the “sandy” sensation. But I can tell her face is glowing!

第三天,我和妹妹一起去参加了一个时尚活动。我留意到妹妹的脸上并没有任何的红肿,只是用手触摸时才能感受到的磨砂感。但是我明显看出妹妹的脸很有光泽!



Then my sister returned to China, and I was waiting to hear her final report on the “Clear and Brighten” treatment.

She sent me some pictures yesterday and she really looks great, with a kind of glowing base when I compare her “before” and “after” photos.  Of course, different lighting might lead to different appearance in the pictures, but my sister herself says he really loves the final result (and the “sandy” feeling disappeared soon after she returned to China).  Now she can’t wait to get some more treatment in a couple months when she comes and visits us during the holiday seasons.

接着妹妹就回中国了,而我就等着她汇报“亮白肌肤”治疗的最终效果。

妹妹昨天发来一些相片,通过对比她之前的相片,治疗后的相片里她看起来真的不错哦,皮肤比以前有光泽。当然不同角度的采光拍出来的相片效果会有所不同,但妹妹说她很满意现在的效果。(皮肤的磨砂感在妹妹回国后很快就消失了)现在妹妹等不及在接下来的假期里再次来美国看望我们,并尝试更多的美容项目。

 

Thank you to New Life Wellness Spa for working with us on this post; I specially give thanks to all their professional Chinese/English speaking consultants and nurses who made the experience very comfortable, so it felt like home.

Oh, now I am thinking to go back for some Beauty + Skinny IV Drip — want to try it with me?

在此感谢新生命健康水疗中心与我们一起完成本篇博文;我还要特别感谢他们专业的中英文双语的咨询师和护士,让我们在接受治疗时感觉像在家里一样舒适放松。

对了,现在我在想要再去做美容+瘦身的维生素点滴注射,有人感兴趣要加入一起的吗?
