My journey to clearer skin

Hey guys!

I usually have the occasional breakout before my period which was manageable with topical creams. However as I was trying out a few new products my skin reacted badly to it. At that time I did not figure out that it was the products that was causing my skin to have breakouts and continued using it, causing my skin to be worse and worse. I was rather depressed as it was taking too long to heal and I got rather impatient. My confidence was like -23746871524% as concealer cannot conceal bumps on my skin. I just wanted to stay home all day. I have to be careful next time as I have sensitive skin and not all products will suit my skin type.


My hairstylist’s friend recommended me to go to Swiss Clinic to consult Dr Liu to help out with my skin problems. On my first visit, Dr Liu recommended me the Dual Yellow laser acne treatment.
He explained the benefits of the Dual Yellow laser which would treat my acne by destroying bacteria without damaging my skin and help heal my scars. It is also effective for pigmentation (freckles/age spots), wrinkles, stretch marks and also aids in skin rejuvenation. Even warts and moles can be treated effectively with the Dual Yellow laser. After he explained everything to me, I was super excited for the laser treatment! :D


Here's there treatment room! :D



The whole process was rather quick and took about 45 minutes :D I had to get my hair away from my face and have it all cleansed to prep my face before the laser treatment. The laser treatment was not painful at all! My eyes had to be shield from the bright lasers beams.


After the laser treatment I had a mask all over my face to soothe my skin :D To me it was sleep time.

After the whole treatment I realized that there was a difference to my skin and it was in a better condition than it was before. My skin was clearer, smoother and brighter. I was so happy with the results. Of course more treatments are needed to achieve even better results and I can't wait till I achieve flawless skin! :D

Dr Liu also prescribed me a few medications(Doxycline, Retinol A Cream, Prednisone) which I paid for to keep my acne under control :D

Two weeks later, I came for my next treatment! This time, it was the Carbon Peel Laser Treatment :D 



 This is the machine that they used for the laser treatment. :D



 Before performing the laser treatment, a layer of carbon lotion is applied on my entire face and allowed to dry over a few minutes. During the procedure, laser light is shot on the skin and is absorbed by the carbon lotion. It helps to exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in the pores.



The carbon lotion made me look like an inverted panda :p Hehe. After the treatment, my face was rather red. Thank god they put a mask over my face to soothe and reduce all the redness :D



By the time I left the treatment room, my face was GLOWING O.O When I looked into the mirror I realised my pores were noticeably smaller :'D This treatment is suitable for people with acne, enlarged pores, oily skin. fine lines and dull skin. So glad I could see results in just 1 treatment :D Dr Liu did inform me that I might face breakouts after the treatment as it has a 'detox' kind of effect and push the impurities out of the skin. I guess it will be all worth it in the end right? :D


Thank you Dr Liu and the staff at Swiss Clinic for being so kind, patient and accommodating! :D
