My journey to looking better continues...
If you have seen me in person, you will know that I don't have perfect skin.
I have enlarged pores. This is partly due to the bad acne problem I had when I was young. Because of that, I feel embarrassed when people look at me closed up.
Thank you Doctor Matthew Yap, my savior from Astique Clinic! If you had read my previous post on my 1st visit to Astique Clinic, Dr Matthew Yap advised me to do Jaw Botox to achieve a more chiseled look, fillers for a more defined nose bridge and also laser treatments (for pores).
Yes! Laser treatment is the secret to a better skin and this is what I am going to share with you today.
Laser skin rejuvenation
Price: from $481.50 per session
Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Stimulating collagen production in our skintexture, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with acne scarring will also notice a marked improvement. The laser can be used to rejuvenate many areas on the body, including the face, hands, neck and chest.
Laser can stimulate collagen production in our skin, and as new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, as the laser light penetrates age spots and other pigmentation, these areas are broken apart and absorbed into the skin. Patients report, and studies have also confirmed that laser skin rejuvenation results in a refreshed appearance, smoother skin
Safest lasers on the market
The Medlite C6 laser used for skin rejuvenation is one of the safest lasers on the market today, and the procedure has very little risk of complications. Patients of all skin types can be safely treated – including those with tanned skin.
How is the procedure like?
There is simply no downtime for this procedure because the Laser skin rejuvenation does not affect the outer layers of skin. During the procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleansed, and laser-protective goggles are placed over the eyes. A topical anesthesia can be used if the patient requests for it.
There will be an invisible laser beam which is directed at your face, heating up the deeper layers of the dermis to stimulate collagen production. The Medlite laser offers a very comfortable treatment and the sensation can be described as a “tingling” feeling.
As you can see from the photo above, the female assistant holding on to a pipe on her hand, that is actually like a cooler blower to cool your skin so you will not feel any discomfort during the procedure. One session will take approximately 45 minutes.
After the laser session, you might see mild to moderate redness on your face and it is normal. But the redness usually fades within an hour after treatment.
Patients can put on makeup immediately and resume their daily activities.
One thing to note is to avoid the sun for 1 to 2 weeks after laser treatment.
