Aesthetic treatments are getting more popular in Malaysia, I’ve been receiving a lot of review invitations and it really caught my interest, so I decided to experience it for myself. I’m not a girl who’s into plastic surgery or any drastic change to my face, I love the way I born. 🙂 But I think they might have some very mild treatment who fits my needs too? So I accepted one of those invitations in the hoping that doctor may give me some good advice.
I was first having a consultation with Dr. Jasmine, from Nexus Clinic
She then having a skin analysis on my skin.
Then she tried to explain to me.
I was offered with two choices – Fractional CO2 Laser and Medlite C6 Nd:YAG Laser.
The first one is quite an intensive treatment, the downtime is one week and the skin will turn pink and peel, so obviously I went for the later choice, which the downtown is only 30 mins or less.
Before the Medlite C6 Nd:YAG Laser process, I was given this Microderbrasion treatment.
It is a non-surgical way to get rid of acne scars, fine wrinkles and sunspots by exfoliating the top layers of the skin.
Simple facial cleaning before the process.
This machine is acting like a “facial vacuum cleaner” to clear the impurities on the skin, my blackheads and whiteheads almost gone after this!!
I love this Microderbrasion treatment, A LOT. I don’t feel any pain or discomfort and it could clean my skin thoroughly. My skin was literally having a “spring cleaning”!
Then Medlite C6 Nd:YAG Laser.
The MedLite C6 Laser works by stimulating collagen production. This new technology helps treats scars and wrinkles at the root of the problem, deep in the skin. Using laser energy that penetrates deeply without injuring the top layer of skin, the deep dermis is stimulated to produce natural collagen and other vital proteins that make up healthy, youthful skin.
Dr. Jasmine did the Microderbrasion for double cleansing.
Since this is my first time laser, she set it at the lowest intensity at 3.
She tested on my jawline first, I felt a little painful then she reduced to 2.2. According to them, it’s unusual for a patient to feel painful for this procedure, maybe I’ve a thinner and sensitive skin that’s why I felt it, I think at the end they reduced the laser intensity to about 2, or lower.
Before and after, no edit at all to show the difference.
I’ve brighter skin, smaller pores and some of my acne spots were lighten. My facial hair were bleached and they’re more invisible in the picture now. But I did feel a little bit pain on the lips and around eye areas, on the same day that I did the laser. The pain was gone the next day though, I guess sensitive skin person will suffer a little bit more than normal people?
Apparently I’ve more even skin tone even though the laser intensity was a lot lower than what the doctor usually do. Going through aesthetic treatment is really depending on your skin conditions and your level of acceptance. For me, I thought it would be like another facial treatment but it’s actually not, aesthetic treatment will change your skin/ appearance. In my own opinions, I think aesthetic treatment is good for those who’re having problem skin (acne, scars, etc..) which needs to be cured so badly or to enhance their appearance. It’s always advisable to consult doctor before going through any treatments. I believe that beauty is being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out.
Blogger, Emma Soh visited Nexus Clinic last week and it was her very first time step into an Aesthetic Clinic. She was consulted by Dr.Jasmine about her skin problem and finally she went for Microdermabrasion and Medlite Laser treatment.
