Get Summer-Ready with YSA Skin and Body Experts


People usually get conscious only with their weight whenever the season of "lesser clothes" draws in. Actually, I've long been over working-out for abs during summer because my body type is just not meant for them, but I do consider TWO other things to get ready for the season: 

1) Going hair-free
and 2) Trying out underarm whitening

In short, I am all for smoother skin more than thinness when it comes to having a "swimsuit body". There are still a few weeks to achieve these, and there are services in Ysa Skin and Body Experts to help you with these goals. 




Ysa Summer-Ready #1: Chemical Peel

Chemical Peeling is for skin rejuvenation, a whole body process that is non-invasive, fast, and easy. It treats skin conditions like fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, blemishes, shallow acne scars, and discoloration, giving you a youthful, softer, tighter, and smoother skin.

When I had my underarm chemical peel in Ysa, they first tested the peel solution (TCA - trichloroacetic acid) in a small portion of my arm to see if it has negative reactions to my skin. When confirmed safe, TCA was applied in my UA, and then I was free to go about with my day's tasks. I went back the next day for my 2nd application, the chemical wasn't wiped off, and I was allowed to go to my Bikram Yoga Class after. 

The peeling started around a week after the application, and lasted for around 2 weeks max till it was completely peeled off. I don't wear sleeveless a lot so it wasn't a problem. I noticed that the dead skin has peeled off, and replaced with fresh, "pinkish", new skin. :) 


Ysa Summer-Ready #2: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

I am a big fan of laser hair removal because it is fast, clean, and pain-free. And of course, being hair-free lasts longer with laser! I tried a lot of IPL and diode machines in different salons, and YSA by Zen in Burgos Circle Taguig is one of my favorites. 

What I like about the machine they use in Ysa by Zen is that there's no need to apply cool gel and shave hair from my UA and legs. A handheld treatment unit was swiped in areas with hair, the procedure lasted at around 30-45 minutes. It was quick and clean, I just felt minor stings on my leg where hair was a bit thicker. You can go for an IPL every 3 weeks to 1 month, for 8-10 sessions, before hair is completely unnoticeable.
