Well I personally think that only special treatment from professional can help me to prevent the regrowth of active acne and majorly removal of the dark scars on my skin at this moment. Thanks to Premier Clinic for the invitation to experience their service at their TTDI branch 2 weeks ago.
Premier Clinic, TTDI Environment
Premier Clinic is located strategically in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, providing a comprehensive range of non-surgical aesthetic procedures and advanced laser treatments.
Premier Clinic has experienced, qualified doctors and staff to serve your need. Besides, they provide comprehensive range of aesthetic services with personalized consultation and competitively priced without sacrificing quality and complimentary. They also emphasis on safety and excellent results which you don't have to worry about.
I was assigned to see Dr. Kee Yong Seng on my consultation. Dr. Kee is a credentialed and experienced aesthetic doctor. Besides, he's also the director and owner of Premier Clinic, so he's pretty trustable.
He said that my condition can be treated with their Carbon Laser, follow up by a LED Phototherapy treatment to calm down my skin, and then a Skin Peel treatment to treat and stop the active acne from underneath my skin. Yes, 3 treatments together, it's possible!
The treatment starts right away after the consultation with Dr. Kee.
|A protective cap is needed for hygiene purpose before the treatment starts.|
|The nurse cleansed my face before she start applying anything. The cleansing process is very gentle and comfortable.|
|The Carbon Laser and Skin Peel will feel somehow tingling and painful for some people so it's a must to apply numbing cream on the skin before the treatment.|
Carbon laser peel is an innovative laser resurfacing treatment that utilizes laser beams to treat imperfections on the skin. It enhances your skin’s radiance and simultaneously encourages the smoothness of the fresh layer that is revealed. (Read more about Carbon Laser)
|The machine for this laser treatment.|
|The Carbon laser utilizes a special carbon layer which is applied onto the skin before laser commences, so applying carbon on the skin is the key of this treatment. It will have to be set on the skin for 5-10 minutes.|
|The focused laser beam is then aimed at the skin, and after a spark, it will be removed from my skin.|
|That's the laser's spark on my skin.|
How the Carbon helps: The dark shade of the carbon particles helps to absorb the laser beam before a vacuum lightly removes these particles via suction, simultaneously removing the damaged upper layers of skin in the process.
|So that's my skin after the laser, it does gone a bit red especially those injured part. The treatment will produce some carbon/smokey smell so the nurse was holding a suction pipe to suck away the smokey smells.|
If you asked me whether the laser will be hurtful, I would say yes but no. Dr. Kee told me that this laser treatment won't be hurtful but just like a little bit tingling feel, but in my opinion, the laser is like a firecracker popping on the skin. I hope it's because of my sensitive skin and that's why it feels more painful than anyone else did. Also, you have to expect for loud helicopter voice from the laser machine. Besides, my skin gone a bit red after the laser as the laser beam is a little bit heaty.
The light therapy is an anti-aging technique, light therapy restores the youthfulness of your skin and produces results that look natural, making this method increasingly popular. Penetrating the skin at the right depth, light wavelengths help to activate cellular functions in the body which speeds up the pace of skin healing and rejuvenation. These functions also help to address several conditions at the same time, meaning that one session could potentially treat a few skin imperfections. (Read more about LED Phototherapy)
But in my treatment, this LED Phototherapy is to help to calm my skin after doing laser. Since it helps to address several conditions at the same time, I got other benefits from it as well.
Also known as chemical peel, skin peel is recommended for both men and women and is suitable for all ages. It is typically used to remove the top layers of the skin, and is done by applying a peeling solution to the skin, which causes it to naturally peel off. This removes any dead skin cells on the surface and reveals a fresh layer of skin, which is generally smoother and healthier than previous layers. (Read more about Skin Peel)
|Dr. Kee applied a specific acid called Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel, which is one of the original peels used for skin rejuvenation on my skin.|
|Immediately, I felt the burning sensation on my skin, I almost couldn't stand it cause it burns! The nurse was trying to cool down the burning sensation on my skin with the portable fan. Spot the skin that popped up on my skin, just like how the skin of the sausage pop up when we're cooking it (lol is that appropriate? Haha).|
|Finally, my treatment was ended with a full step of skincare routine. Another cleanse, toner, moisturizer and sunscreen. The whole treatment took only 2 hours.|
After the skin peel, I was advised to not to go under direct sunlight, and to avoid it even better. Since my skin will undergo a 2 weeks of down period, moisturizer and sunblock is super important for me after the treatment.

I don't really see obvious skin peeled effect like my previous experience during these 2 weeks of time.
