Any website for this particular saloon?

How do you feel after the facial, if it doesn't seem to give u much problems but improve your skin, why not sign up with the package? If in the end it doesn't give ur skin the attention that's suppose to be, then don't sign up any more packages. Things like this have to be tried and tested to know if it's suitable for you or not. Bad reviews from others doesn't mean it'll give u bad reactions if u use their product or services.

hi patricia,

actually last week i was in the same situation as you. I went for their trial facial at RM48. i thought their facial was very nice. My consultant was very friendly as well. She did ask me to sign up for 10+1 sessions plus 6 full size products for RM2000 (they claim one time is RM280). I told them it was expensive and i will have to ask my parents ( i am just student lar) but i paid deposit of RM50. My consultant said that if i dun want the package den i can exchange the deposit for product.

So when i wen home surf the net, i read many complains from singapore site about their service. I was so worried den. When my consultant called me up , i told her too expensive . So she gave me a student package 3 sess plus 3 products for RM 588. So i tot i might try it lar since just 3 times, better den 10 times lar. Monday i wen for the second time. Their facial actually very nice lar ,like the ultrasonic BUT the extraction so painful. Like use some needles poke my face. Now my face can say less break out lar . Their product also not bad also. I din get any rashes or anything.

I know lar after my 3 times, will surely ask me continue, but expensive lor. I took my mom there also, she sign up 11 times for RM2000 , they say one time RM 400 wor for her age, problems like sagging, wrinkles etc...

Actually up to you lor whether wanna sign up a not. For me since it is 3 times only den oky lar. If anything goes wrong den i won't continue lor. Hope this helps. Btw, which branch did you go? I went to Subang parade one.

Don't get conned by them. They are from the group called the Yun Nam Hair. They are very unethic business people. Their trick is to make you sign up and bucks from you again and again. Infact they have changed name too due to too much complaints fr customers.

You can try the one I sign up...and you and compare are they that good. Mine is bodyperfect at midvalley. Its from HK. I will let you try at my cost. then you can make judgement. (if you are interested la.... )

wait ah...i saw in one website on lots of complain on this NY skin solutions leh.......

shazzac said...

Yea extractions are painful. They use those mini but really sharp needles to poke a hole at the whiteheads/blackheads/pimples in order to get the yuckiness out. If they dun poke, it'll be harder to come out thus more painful squeezing.

jaylow said...

my facial extraction is not painful one...I hate those beautician poke and then use fingers with tissue squeeze it out It has been very common to famous salons like dermalogica or thalgo ones. They still can say prodly "our extraction is very famous!"

what i like about my facial is they use very fine twizzer and they go to your pore and take it out. Some even wear the Magnifer glass which they wear on their forehead and see your pore enlarge like few hundred time and they use the twizzer to take out.....

As my skin is very sensitive, I find the normal painful squeezing methods makes my skin reddish very red and swollen and they can't go off even the 5th day. But when I go for the "take out" method, I got no such problem and I got to confidence to meet frens after facial.

There is another type I heard they only suck out. But you haveto use their range of product which consists of oxygen. But I find the product too oily. Don't like it.

NYSS.. i dun have confident with them altho they advertised a lot but so far all i heard is all negative feedbacks / complaints. To me, if i wana go for facial, i'll choose well-known company which gives me enof confident n mostly can give good results. I've been tired of trying those 1st trial which offers a cheap price but end up not satisfy with their products / services. Most of them r very pushy to make sales from u. I dun like the feeling.

Now i'm having my facial at Bella Skin care. It's a bit exp compared to others but they r very very professional on this. They have lotsa machines n the extraction is very good! I juz love their service so much

jaylow said...

Hi people,

Wonder have you read this? its a place for consumer to complain on their encounters. And New York Skin solutions and Yum Nam (all same boss) are included. Quite a fair bit there.

Happy reading....

Hi jaylow,

I also have sensitive skin, but would like to go for a trial facial and maybe sign up a package to clear blocked pores and some acne/pimples on my face. May I know what package u signed up for at Body Perfect, mid valley? How much is it? I'm kinda interested to try after reading ur comments on how the extraction was done.

Hi all,

I was one of the NYSC customer in subang parade branch last year. I signed up for the course worth about RM4k which about 15 times facial. during the course, i saw improvement in my skin textures which i need to continue using their products for a long time.

to tell u the truth, these people are really good in pestering and persuading people to take their attractive packages. i was one of the victim. when my facial almost reach the 15th, they kept persuading me to continue in order to see a better result. having said that, the package they offered is quite expensive compared to the others.

i finally discontinued. now my face back to origin which at times it break outs quite often. that saddens me. after spending so much money in their product n services, nothing much has help my face unless i keep investing more money into them.

Hi all,
I'm new member here. just joined today after I read the forum on NYCC here.
I signed up a facial treatment package at NYCC subang parade last year Nov. Now I still have balance 3 treatments to go.
I agree with u all ----all the consulatants are very hard-seller. do u all know how much I have spent there since NOV 2006 till now?
first RM3900 for 15 treatments. then on my 6th treatment, the consultant told me that my skin is too dry, need more hydration. that's why can't see obvious result on my face. ask me to add another 2k++ for ampourse (soothing & hydrating liquid).they claim that if i don't add this product in the treatment, my face will not get improvement and it's waste for the RM3900 that I 've spent for the whole package.
so, I bought that product. first time use that product, really feel soothing.... but dunno why I found it no effect on my skin anymore after 3rd or 4th bottle.
then come to my 10th or 11th treatment, i met their skin specialist. she keep on criticizing my complexion-- too dry la..too sensitive la...that They have to use their strongest weapon---plant placenta, then only can totally cure my complexion. it cost about RM 960 per treatment. and have to go for at least 5 times. but this time i didn't signed up. because I realise that I've spent almost all my saving there but no improvement on my complexion.

Hi Jaylow, may i know which package are you taking at BodyPrefect at there ? I'm quite interested with it.. and how much does it cost you?

Hi girls .. I'm a new member here.

I feel shock after reading the comments in this column & I want to share my story too.

I tried the NYSS free trial facial in Mac this year at the Subang Jaya outlet. During the consultation, the beautician pointed out I am having very severe skin problems. After the facial, the beautician & the branch manager asked me to signed up for a course of RM 4000 consists of 15 collagen facial treatments. I did'nt sign up the course immediately but I paid a deposit of RM 500 in order to book for the so called "promotion" package !! 2 weeks later, the beautician called me & hoping to to overcome my skin problems, I signed up the course. After 4 treatments, I don't see any visible improvement as guatanteed by them, the beautician has cosulted her "skin specialist" & asked me to switch to a more expensive course >> RM 9800 for the plant placenta treatment. She said this will definitely overcome all my skin problems. I rejected her suggestion, saying that it is too expensive. Again, the branch manager (an Indian lady who is quite rude) also pursuaded me to sign up for the course. I didn't do so. After 3 week, I went for my 4th facial treatment, the beautician said I can switch to the plant placenta treatment by just purchasing 10 bottles of plant placenta which cost me RM 1890 (after discount). Again, hoping to cure my skin problem, I bought those plant placenta. Honestly, I can see better skin complexion after the 1st bottle .... but now, my skin is back to orgin. I feel so regretted as I spent so much of my money.

I want to know does this "skin specialist" actually exist ? Also, I don't understand why they ask me to go facial on a weekly basis ? Moreover, whenever I get breakout after the facial, the beautician will say "it's a normal skin reaction" ??!!

Mich gave a free facial to me sometime last month at New York Skin Solutions.

“You must call them to make appointment, they are very busy one,” she told me.

My ‘beautician’ explained my skin type and what she would do while scanning my face with a eye-scope and displayed the images in the notebook screen. Eeek! Lots of clogged pores, dirt (a lot of standing, waiting for bus?), oil and blemishes.

The reception area appeared small but according to my beautician, “There are 22 room here,” when I asked her. The walls are in navy too so it’s quite dark but the rooms are in beidge or white - couldn’t really tell.

Each room has a bed, a sink with automated hot / cold water (convenient for facial & massages), a mirror and hanger for your clothes. Most of the customers would have a machine brought in for facial. There is a loose garment to wear because there’s shoulder & neck massage. Some of the products are applied there too.

The facial would take about 1 1/2hr - 2hrs. For my pimples with oily skin, I was:

cleansed
2 masks
pimples, blackheads & whiteheads extraction
brief face & shoulder massage
It was very relaxing - I almost fell asleep. Except the extraction part. 2 cotton pads were put over my eyes to protect them from the light onto face. And I suspect to absorb my tears. After the facial is finished, I was brought to the same room as the screening again to check results. Really, cleaner and fresher. There was less red marks from the pimples retraction compared to Praise Beauty.

Then she introduced the facial package. RM2000 for 10 facial sessions and 50% discount on skincare products. Aha! It was too expensive for me. Seeing my reluctance, she offered another package - RM1000 for 5 facial sessions and 3 products in full size (cleanser, toner, moisturizer).

“Let me think first,” I told her.

“You must sign up today. The promotion is not valid on another day.”

Wah, shit. This is how New York Skin Solution capture you.

“You also get 3 free facial vouchers for your friends each month.”

Next time, I’m going to research all freebies and jobs/companies at Online Consumer Community Portal!

London Weight Management (formerly Sensualite Slimming),
New York Skin Solutions (formerly Giant Ginseng) & Yun Nam Hair Care belong to same Singaporean HQ: all 3 companies use same hard-selling tactics, same operation. There have been cases filed against them at the consumer tribunal for misleading advert, unethical business practices, cheating etc. You can read those horror stories under consumer messages headings “Yun Nam Hair care” & “London Weight Management Sdn Bhd”.

- Consumer - New York Skin - suspicious and unethical

My beautician also recommended Collagen drink to detoxify and have more energy - there’s a promotion of Buy 2 Free 1 for April. 1 pack is RM180. I didn’t buy it. She persuaded me to take it but I insisted not to.

The point is:

YOU CAN SAY NO and LEAVE.

By the time I reached home, the red spots were apparent! I thought we shouldn’t get scars from facials! But after a day or two, I noticed my skin was better and no more red spots.

Resolution:

Learn to say NO more often
Eat more Vit C & fruit
Drink more water
Shit more
Exercise and manage stress
