My First Acne Treatment at Nexus Clinic
Hi all! Recently I having some skin problem, it’s quite serious for me. I’m here to tell you a little story of my skin.
Previously when I was in secondary school, I have mild acne skin. After I studied collage I was thinking to cure the acne. I know it’s not so serious but I can’t leave the acne on my face!! (I know I’m typical OCD haha!) Then my friend have try a home care peeling skincare to cure her acne skin, so I contacted the agent. After few month, I started using the peeling skincare. After 2years using the peeling skincare, I stopped using it slowly. Because I don’t want to do the peel continuously.. It’s tough for me! And then I found Nexus Clinic
I started the treatment on 16th January. Let me tell you what I did at Nexus Clinic and how they help me cure my acne skin!
Nexus Clinic founded in 2001, they have been this aethetics industry for more than 13years. The clinic is a top-notch aesthetics center which is sitedin the heart of KL’s Golden Triangle (around Pavilion). they providing a comprehensive range of non-surgical aethetic procedures and advanced laser treatments.
I was talking to Dr Jasmine about my acne problem and my skincare routine. She said, must be the things you put on your skin brings you trouble and sleep late it’s also will cause you acne! (YES! I Agreed!) Dr Jasmine advice me to do the TCA Peel (Tri-Chloroacetic Acid) & LED Phototherapy! I will explain to you some detail about the treatment.
TCA Peel (Tri-Chloroacetic Acid)
TCA Peel is one of the original skin rejuvenation peels. They are recommended for men and women of all ages wanting to improve moderate to severe sun damage and or signs of ageing. Superficial TCA Peels are designed as mild to moderate peels. Their strength and therefore peeling effects can be increased, by layering the applications.
NOT SUITABLE FOR THOSE WHO:
• Roaccutane used in the last 6 months
• Dermatitis or infection in the area to be treated
• Abnormal wound healing
Expected changes over the next 7 to 14 days include:
Day 1 to 3 – Tight, dry skin with moderate redness and sensitivity
Day 2 to 5 – Areas of darkened skin (this is the old skin in preparation to peel)
Day 3 to 7 – Peeling or slight flaking lasting 2 to 5 days
After the conversation, she bring me to the room and prepare for the treatment!
First, they did some cleansing to remove any impurities and breakouts! (Honestly, I’m quite enjoy the pain-ness on this process! haha!)
Here’s are my BEFORE picture! Still can see a lot of breakouts and small white head on my face.
I ha no enough sleep on that day I think! haha XD
Next, Dr Jasmine apply the TCA Peel on my face.
(Very honest to tell you, it’s quite tingling, warm and pricking on the skin. But it’s very normal, no harm k!)
Massage! I love this! To reduce the tingling sensation!
Light therapy is one of the most powerful anti-aging tools in the arsenal against the ravages of time. This powerful technology has been mostly used by physicians, NASA and the NAVY SEALS for muscle regeneration and the healing of wounds.
When light therapy is used, this triggers cellular activity thus producing ATP and once produced, the tissue uses it to carry out healing and rejuvenation in the treated area.
WHAT TO TREAT:
• Wound Healing
• Pain Relief
• Muscle and Joint Pain
• Muscle Spasm
• Temporary Increase of Blood Circulation
• Hair Regrowth
• Active Acne
• Skin Rejuvenation
It improves or erases fine lines and wrinkles, it lifts and tones and improves the overall complexion. It heals blemishes, pimples, acne and other such skin problems. It kills the bacteria present in the skin and ensures that it does not take place again.
After that become Ultraman by wearing the tanning goggle! *JIANG JIANG! haha!
I’m going to do the next treatment which is the LED Phototherapy! The LED Phototherapy normally need to do it up to 20mins…. (I almost fall asleep when I did it! *yawn)
That’s all for the LED Phototherapy! I had done my treatment today! yeay! Need to wait for 5-7 days for the skin peel.. hmm..
Thank you Dr Jasmine for the treatments and the skincare product!
After a week, my pores was reduce, but you still can feel the small white head, acne and scars on my face. But it’s actually improve a lot after the above treatment!
I will share you all their own skincare products on next post, my favourite skincare in the whole series is the Vital C! I tell you! This product is amazing!! It’s like a serum or essences! After I apply it, my skin stopped peel about 50%! Serious!

First, clean the skin before we proceed to the treatment! *I love it*
After cleansing, there is still a lot of whitehead and black head there, so we proceed to the treatment now!!!
TREATMENT – ENERPEEL
Dr Jasmine had suggest me go for this Enerpeel. Enerpeel is actually a mild peeling. As Dr Jasmine mentioned, it’s mild peeling so the peel for this time is different compare to the first peel (TCA Peel) that I did. *happy*
Enerpeel® provides a range of skin peel treatments designed for patients seeking skin rejuvenation treatments that can stimulate skin remodelling and boost collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production without traumatising the skin on the surface.
By using this press the Enerpeel out from this tiny brush. Apply on the whole face.
How’s the feeling? It was a bit tingling and dry.
Dr Jasmine is adding more Enerpeel on the area I had breakouts
After applied the Enerpeel for few minutes, Dr Jasmine using the Enerpeel Remove Wipe to remove the Enerpeel acid on my face ????

SKINCARE & MEDICINE
Dr Jasmine had give me some antibiotic, which is the Doxycycline®.
According to the research, Doxycyline® belongs to a group of antibiotics called tetracyclines. Doxycycline is used to treat acne and rosacea, as well as many other bacterial infections.
