I visited the clinic again to treat my acne problem one week after I have done my cheek fat removal with CoolMini at Halley Medical Aesthetics.
Take a look at my skin condition, it is so bad that I will feel frustrated at times because the affected area hurt so much whenever an acne pops up, especially at the chin area. Because of all these flaws. I’ve got to put on cream foundation every day which is not healthy for the skin.
- Fractional CO2 laser
- Long Pulsed laser
- Fractional Erbium laser
Hearing that I am having an upcoming outdoor activity right after the treatment week, Dr. Tan customized the treatment by removing the Fractional CO2 laser as there might be some scabbing, which would not be ideal for me.
About the lasers
The Long Pulsed laser – a versatile, no downtime laser which is used to improve skin texture as well as tighten our skin by stimulating the skin’s fibroblast cells to generate collagen. Pore size is reduced as well when our skin tightens. The Long Pulsed laser also targets haemoglobin within the blood vessels, removing fine veins and redness caused by inflammation and acne.
My treatment process
First, cleansing is being done for removal of make up
Numbing cream is then applied and left for a few minutes for it to be absorbed into the skin
Wore an eye protection and started off with the Long Pulsed laser done by Dr. Tan
This is how the Long Pulsed laser tool looked like from another angle
Followed by the Micro Laser Peel with the Erbium laser
After the laser treatment, I can resume my normal routine, but Dr. Tan advises me to minimize sun exposure for a week and to apply sunblock daily on the treated area.
No downtime after micro-laser peel
My overall experience was pleasant. The process may seem scary because of the types of equipment and tools used, in fact, it’s not painful at all. The feeling felt like little ant bites.
Dr. Tan also did frequent checks with me when he was treating area to area to make sure that I was feeling alright.
About 3 days later, my skin started to peel. However, it was a mild one, not exactly visible if the person is not standing near me. Although the skin peeling, it doesn’t feel dry, itchy, or painful. I still continue with my usual makeup routine.
1 week later, my acne started to clear up slowly, except for the chin area. But I’ve scheduled another session with Dr. Tan to further improve my skin. Now I can go out even without any foundation on.
