If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you will somehow notice that I’ve been taking steps to improve my skin condition lately. I never grew up with perfect skin.
At one point in high school, my skin condition went downhill and I suffered from severe acne. So severe that my dad felt bad for her daughter to grow up looking like she’s sprouting all over her face so he sent me for vitamin C booster injections for months. It did clear up my skin although I wasn’t very sure if it had any side effects. The only things left were my enlarged pores, acne scars and some pigmentation from the years of tanning under the sun.
I’m not a person who wears makeup on a daily basis, despite my undying love for cosmetics. Of course, makeup looks even better on a clean and clear canvas, don’t you think? I’ve always longed for clear, near-perfect skin so I can skip multiple steps of the makeup base everytime I want to put makeup on.
I’ve consulted a few skin clinics before but I settled with M.E Aesthetics Clinic in KL, BerjayaTimes Square cause the doctors and the staff made me feels at ease. They were friendly, gentle and definitely one of the best I’ve met in explaining procedures and my skin condition to me.
I had very little scarring left so I didn’t need to go for the major laser procedure. I also needed to shrink my pore size hence they recommended the “Elsa Bright Laser Treatment”, also known as the Lunchtime Laser Treatment as it takes only between 15-30 minutes to rejuvenate your skin.
There are virtually no side effects right after this treatment so patients can resume back to their activities immediately, re-apply makeup and carry on with the day. However, it is advised that patients keep out of the direct contact with sunlight and apply at least SPF 30 before going outside. If patients have extra time, this Elsa Bright Laser Treatment can also be combined with Post-Laser Treatment as an ideal complement to microdermabrasion.
Benefits of the Elsa Bright Laser Treatment:
- Removes brown age and liver spots (lentigines)
- Removes freckles
- Removes tattoos
- Removes brown birthmarks and Nevus of Ota
- Improving dull & uneven skin tone,
- Smoothes wrinkles,
- Minimizing open pore
- Improving acne & black heads.
- Stimulates new collagen synthesis to improve skin tone
I’ve had multiple shoots over the past couple of months and have been exposed to extreme sun and harsh conditions but every time I did the treatment I would always come out with great skin right after. I can’t wait to finish all my shoots and have the best condition for my skin to breathe, heal and rest. So far, these are my photos with very little foundation less than a week after each treatment. I noticed that my scarring have lessened, my pores have tightened and it’s easier to remove my whiteheads nowadays. All you need it just good routine of skin care, sun protection and you’ll be able to maintain the post-laser skin for a very long time.
After my first treatment, I got a little sunburnt in Thailand during my shoot but my pores were clearly diminishing in size and applying makeup was much easier.
By the time I was in Azerbaijan, my makeup stayed and my face was less oily. I didn't need any more makeup base or pore fillers before applying my foundation. Plus, I was only using a tinted moisturiser instead of a full-fledged foundation on this trip.
My latest skin condition in Sydney, smoother skin with less acne scar visible on my skin. I had little foundation and my skin was easier to manage. However I was sunburnt again from this trip and I'm currently rejuvenating my skin with home remedies and also going for the facial treatment at M.E Clinic soon!
