[Review] Safe and Effective Acne Scar Removal Treatment in Singapore

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Friday, 07 February 2020 10:36

We thought that acne scars are just acne scars, but who knew that there were different types of acne scars? That’s what our MyFatPocket videographer Desmond found out when he went for his first ever aesthetics consultation at The Clifford Clinic in an attempt to get rid of his acne scars.

We accompanied Desmond to his consultation at The Clifford Clinic, known for their safe and effective acne scar removal treatments, and he met celebrity doctor, Dr. Chow Yuen Ho, who will be the doctor in charge of him. Read on to see his final results, and how much his scarring improved in the comparison of his pre and post-treatment photos at the end.

 

Consultation

During the consultation, Dr. Chow took a detailed look at Desmond’s skin and shared that Desmond had three different types of acne scars – ice-pick scars, boxcar scars, and rolling scars. Apparently, different types of acne scars require different treatments for the best results. Dr. Chow customised an acne scar removal program for Desmond, which included Secret RF, Pico-Hexa MLA laser and Infini Fractional R Treatment, a total of three sessions over three months.

 

Acne scar removal session 1: INFINI Acne Scar Treatment

INFINI is the latest and most effective technology available in Singapore to treat deep acne scars, and it comes with the bonus of overall skin lifting and rejuvenation. 

INFINI uses a microneedle system that reaches into the dermis layer of the skin to stimulate collagen production from below. The collagen then pushes up the pits of the acne scars and thus, smoothing out the skin. Because of the collagen production, this acne scar removal treatment comes with the “side effect” of a youthful and lifted skin. Isn’t that a bonus?

The beauty therapist at The Clifford Clinic cleansed Desmond’s skin and applied numbing cream and injected anesthesia on his face prior to the treatment. Once the numbing took effect, Dr. Chow went ahead to administer the INFINI treatment and the entire treatment took about 20 minutes.

Desmond was nervous but shared that Dr. Chow calmed him down a lot by chit-chatting with him throughout to distract him from the needles. There were some discomfort during the treatment but it was definitely bearable.

Post-treatment, Desmond's face looked really red but the redness went away in a day or two.

 

Acne scar removal session 2: Secret RF

Secret RF uses controlled, fractional RF energy and minimally-invasive microneedles to fight acne and the first signs of aging, and restructure and rebuild the affected areas damaged by aging and acne scarring with long-lasting effects. 

After cleansing and numbing, Desmond was led to the treatment room where Dr. Chow administered the Secret RF treatment on him. Gold-coated needles deliver heat into the skin at various depth to remodel collagen and elastin.

Desmond’s face was red and he had patches on his skin that looked like burnt marks. Not wanting to scare everyone, he wore a mask to work for the next two days. At this point, he was pretty worried about scarring from the treatment but there was nothing to worry about. He recovered after a few days, and in fact, his skin looked smoother, and his acne scars improved a lot after this second treatment.

Do keep in mind that there will be some downtime for the Secret RF treatment, and remember to make sure that you plan your schedule in such a way that there are no important events for the next few days after the treatment. However, everyone is different and may react differently to the treatment, so it is still best that you check with your doctor so that he/she can give you the best advice.

 

Acne scar removal session 3: Pico MLA Laser

Picosecond lasers are effective removal tools for skin pigmentation and acne scars and its extreme precision means that it can minimize the risk of damage to surrounding tissue, thus causing less discomfort to the patient and greatly reduces recovery time.

Just when Desmond was gearing himself to brave any form of pain, he was elated when he realised that the Pico MLA Laser is a relatively painless process. There was zero downtime, and Dr. Chow also informed him that besides helping to reduce the appearance of his acne scars, Pico MLA Laser can also treat enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. Now, look who is grinning from ear to ear?

 

Results of Desmond’s 3-month Acne Scar Removal Program

On the 4th month, Desmond returned to The Clifford Clinic for a review. Comparing his pre and post-treatment photos, we can say that the acne scar removal treatment was a success!

Desmond's acne marks lightened significantly, and his pitted acne scars evened out. His skin tone is now more even and skin is much smoother. The 3 treatments stimulated his collagen production and if you look closely, you can see that even his laugh lines are less obvious and his skin is more youthful and rejuvenated!

 

If you are plagued by acne scars leftover from your younger days, do book an appointment with The Clifford Clinic for a consultation with Dr. Chow Yuen Ho to see which treatment program is best for you.

Skin Rejuvenation and Scar Removal at Sozo Aesthetic Clinic

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Thursday, 06 February 2020 15:26

Unlike ladies, men going for aesthetic treatments is often a hush-hush subject. Since I am approaching the big 4 soon, I wanted to look for a reliable aesthetic doctor who understands my skin needs and offers treatments that have got no downtime.

Sozo Aesthetic Clinic Skin Rejuvenation Scar Removal Anti-Aging Treatment Singapore

Dr Justin Boey, who runs the Sozo Aesthetic Clinic was the answer to my prayers. Sozo Aesthetic Clinic is conveniently located at One Raffles Place and it is easily accessible. Join me as I bring you through my journey with Sozo Aesthetic Clinic for my skin rejuvenation and scar removal treatments in my quest for better skin.

 

The Consultation

Well, this ain't exactly my favourite as I often feel vulnerable with someone exposing all my facial flaws. However, Dr Justin Boey was great in easing me into the process. His nurses took high-resolution images of my existing skin conditions which he studied in detail. As I inch towards the big 40, Dr Boey recommended skin rejuvenation and scar removal as my priorities for rosy and glowing skin.

To achieve my desired results, Dr Justin recommended Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment. The treatment produces thousands of tiny microthermal zones in the treated areas. Each zone is the diameter of a shaft of hair, however, these columns extend deep into the middle layer of the skin- where the scars lie. Laser targets the scarred areas and old collagen but also leaves areas of healthy tissue to regenerate through collagen production. He also hinted that he might just add another treatment if this treatment goes well.

Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment

Before going under the laser, one of the friendly nurses applied numbing cream over every inch of my face to ensure that my Fractional CO2 Laser treatment will be a comfortable one. The numbing effect kicked after about 20 minutes.

I was a little surprised when the laser first hit me. It stung a little but it was definitely bearable. There was a burning smell but Dr. Boey assured me that everything was alright.

I got used to the feeling after a while and at this point, I was quite worried, wondering if my face became a patchwork of "burns".

I guess I worry too much. Thankfully, the Fractional CO2 Laser treatment didn't leave any marks. I just looked a little red.

I was tasked to apply this recovery cream for the next two days. I went back to work the very next day as there was only slight redness. Only one or two colleagues asked if I was out in the sun the day before. No awkward moments!

The INFINI Laser Treatment

On my next visit, I consulted Dr Sau Po Yi and she enthusiastically introduced a new treatment on top of my CO2 Laser to further improve my skin. Say hello to INFINI Laser Treatment, a microneedling radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing treatment that addresses scars, wrinkles, and sagging skin. She shared that this is one of the best acne scar removal treatments.

Sozo Aesthetic Clinic Skin Rejuvenation Scar Removal Anti-Aging Treatment Singapore

 
A 3-dimensional approach is used to deliver RF energy to volumize scar tissue. It combines the thermal power of radiofrequency with microneedling. Radiofrequency is delivered deep into the skin. The dermis, which is the second layer of skin, contains collagen. INFINI delivers heat energy to the dermis. This encourages the production of collagen and elastin – which in turn tightens scar tissues, improves skin texture, and reduces the depth of scars.
 
Sozo Aesthetic Clinic Skin Rejuvenation Scar Removal Anti-Aging Treatment Singapore
 

INFINI Laser is especially effective for depressed areas on the skin as INFINI RF technology uses little needles and deliver heat deep into the dermis and directly targets the inner part of the scar – up to 3.5mm deep. The sting from INFINI Laser hurts even more than CO2 Laser. But ass Dr Sau said, "‘No pain, no gain"!

Sozo Aesthetic Clinic Skin Rejuvenation Scar Removal Anti-Aging Treatment Singapore

 

After 3 months of treatments, it was time to review the results. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the noticeable improvements. My old scars were less obvious and my skin has also become smoother, brighter and more glowy.

I made a trip to Croatia recently, and the cold weather, coupled with the treatments I received, made my complexion so much better!

Sozo Aesthetic Clinic Skin Rejuvenation Scar Removal Anti-Aging Treatment Singapore

 

I really appreciate the professionalism of my two doctors and the team of nurses at Sozo Aesthetic Clinic. The overall results were good. The cost and downtime were very manageable and I believe I will soon get used to the sting as the treatments become more regular. Other than the treatments I went for, they also have other treatments such as Subcision FillerRejuran Filler as well as TCA Cross Acne Scar Treatment.

Getting Ellanse Filler for My Sunken Cheeks at The Clifford Clinic to Regain My Youth

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Monday, 03 February 2020 09:47

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. Collagen gives our skin the elasticity and plumpness for that youthful look. When our skin loses collagen, we will start to look older and more haggard as we lose volume and plumpness on our face.

The Clifford Clinic Ellanse Fillers for Sunken Cheeks Singapore

The areas below my cheekbones were looking sunken due to collagen loss, and I’ve often felt that my sunken cheeks made me look tired and worn-down. I longed for a treatment that could add some volume to my face for more contour and definition to regain my youthful look. I went to The Clifford Clinic and did a short consultation with celebrity doctor Dr. Gerard Ee, hoping that he could address my problems. Upon looking at my face, he immediately realised what I needed.

The Clifford Clinic Ellanse Fillers for Sunken Cheeks Singapore

Dr. Gerard Ee gave me 2 options to fill up my sunken cheeks. Dr. Ee told me that both Sculptura and Ellanse can improve my sunken cheeks and add more volume to my face. However, he strongly recommended Ellanse as the result will be more natural.

 

What is Ellanse?

ELLANSÉ® fillers works differently and naturally. 

Thanks to its unique properties, it not only corrects wrinkles and folds but also stimulates your own collagen production to really treat the underlying causes of facial ageing. The effects are gradual and longer-lasting, giving you a natural, youthful appearance.

Both Sculptra and Ellanse fillers help to stimulate collagen. When there's collagen, your face will naturally look plumper.

 

How is it different from other collagen-stimulators?

1. Sculptra collagen stimulators need 3-4 weeks to see the effects, whereas Ellanse has an immediate filling effect while waiting for the new collagen to be produced (in this case, Ellanse is similar to Radiesse).

2. Sculptra fills up a zone/area of the face for general collagen stimulation, whereas Ellanse can be used to fill up a zone/area as well as for precise contouring (like the nose bridge and chin).

3. Sculptra needs 3-4 sessions of treatment for the results to last 2 years, whereas 1 session of Ellanse treatment can last from 2-5 years (including the collagen produced that lasts for an extra 0.5-1 year on top of the longevity of Ellanse.)

4. For Sculptra, you need to massage the treated areas for 5 days post-treatment whereas Ellanse doesn’t require any massage.

5. Other collagen-stimulators last around 1-2 years, but Ellanse can last up to 4 years.

 

I was hoping to achieve an immediate effect of a plumper face and I was so happy when Dr. Ee told me that Ellanse can give me instant results!

I guess most of us love aesthetic procedures that give immediate effect and does not have any downtime, isn't it?

The Clifford Clinic Ellanse Fillers for Sunken Cheeks Singapore

The process of the Ellanse treatment to fill up my sunken cheeks is simple and non-invasive. Anaesthetic cream is first applied to numb my face so I don’t have to feel the needles pricks. After that, Dr. Ee assessed my face for potential sunken areas. During the injection process, I was able to chat with Dr. Ee while he did the injections on my cheeks. Pain level was 1/10 !

The Clifford Clinic Ellanse Fillers for Sunken Cheeks Singapore

Look at the outcome after my Ellanse treatment.


I love the immediate effect so so much! And the best part about this collagen stimulator is that it does not have any downtime!

No bruises, no swelling on my face.

Isn’t that the best way to start my 2020?

The Clifford Clinic Ellanse Fillers for Sunken Cheeks Singapore

Ellanse lasts much longer than other fillers and thus, the injection of Ellanse has to be precise, accurate, and safe to avoid any short-term or long-term complications. The doctor offering Ellanse must be extremely competent in fillers injections.

And this also the reason why I chose Dr. Gerard Ee from Clifford Clinic. I have been with him for a few years and I would say that he is really an experienced aesthetic doctor.

The Clifford Clinic Ellanse Fillers for Sunken Cheeks Singapore

I love the subtle change that Dr. Ee gave me with the help of Ellanse. The outcome I get from every procedure helps me gain more confidence.

Eradicating a tired look and achieving a well-rested face has always been a constant challenge for me. I’m so glad that Dr. Ee gave me the best solution and I finally solved my problem!

Cream Skin Is the Next Korean Skincare Trend After Glass Skin

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Friday, 31 January 2020 09:40

The era of the matte, no-shine skin is long gone, and we are no stranger to the ultra glowy glass skin and honey skin brought about by K-beauty skincare trends.

It is possible to achieve glass skin with skincare and skin treatments, but it takes an awful lot of time and effort (think the 10-step Korean skincare routine) and for that, we are happy to hop on to the next Korean skincare movement that will be taking the front row seat this year — cream skin.

 

What is cream skin?

Korean Cream Skin K-Beauty Trend Skincare

Laneige ambassador Kim Yoo Jung /Credit: Laneige 

Cream skin, unlike its predecessor the glass skin, requires less time and effort. Instead of it being just a look, it is a call to get men and women to go back to the basics of skincare routine and focus on hydrating and softening the skin. There is no longer any need to apply layers of serums and oils for skin that shines. Cream skin is basically, skin that looks soft, healthy, and nourished.

 

How to achieve cream skin?

We advocate a healthy lifestyle, combined with a good skincare routine with the right products to achieve supple and healthy skin, à la cream skin. According to Soko Glam founder Charlotte Cho, there is no need to have a multi-step skincare routine, and one can achieve cream skin with products that have lighter and milkier consistencies to achieve a dewy complexion without that blinding shine.

One such product, or in fact, the product that started the cream skin trend is Laneige Cream Skin Toner and Moisturiser. It is a 2-in-1 hybrid that preps and softens like a toner and moisturises like a cream for maximum hydration benefits in one simple step. Laneige's Cream Skin Toner and Moisturiser is lightweight but at the same time, deeply hydrating, and there is no need to layer on other products after application.

Other than Laneige Cream Skin Toner and Moisturiser, you can also try COSRX Light Fit Real Water Toner To Cream, a unique two-in-one toner cream that transforms from a bouncy cream to a liquid on contact and delivers ingredients like seawater, hyaluronic acid, sea buckthorn (a source of vitamin C) and niacinamide into skin to boost moisture levels, brighten and fade acne scars and protect against free radicals.
