Dropped by The Retreat Clinic one fine day for a facial consultation.
My skin has always been just, normal, if you get what I mean, tired, dull and just boring.
The Retreat Clinic is a medical aesthetic clinic specializing in Botox, Liquid, FaceSculpting, Laser Facelift, Laser Rejuvenation and Medical Spa services, meaning facials!
After my consultation with Dr. Ong, I was told that I had very dull and my skin was very 'dead'. It wasn't glowing like it should be. So I decided to give the Sublative Laser treatment a try. As acne scars (I have some, on my nose and lower sides of my cheekbones) can be a real bother at times! Plus this treatment will successfully achieve dermal remodeling within a few sessions to smooth out all pits and scars.
Firstly, my face was cleansed and cleaned before a numbing cream was applied.
I had to prepare for the zapping! Haha my top is just so... awesome lol.
Anyways here comes the application of the numbing cream!
In the past, acne scars were being treated with the gold standard of CO2 lasers but it had tons of downsides! For example, downtime and the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (that's why lots of people stay indoors after laser treatments!). With this Sublative technology, you get all the goodness of a CO2 laser minus the bad side effects!
A cling film was left on my skin so that my skin would absorb all the numbing cream while retaining its moisture.
Here comes the zapping session!
One session is enough to show the dermal remodeling going on (only under microscopic view). With LESS damage to the surface of your skin but more heat and effect deeper within. The results? Smoother, even slightly fairer skin with lesser downtime.
It didn't even hurt. I was asleep when this picture was taken. So mind my expression.
After an hour plus I was done! The red spots you see are the parts of my skin which has scars on it, hence Dr Ong had to raise the laser to a higher 'power' to zap it off.
The Retreat Clinic also offers other treatments such as Botox, fillers and so on. They also do facials which will be the next thing I try out!
My face on the second day.
No make up on. So you could see all the tiny dots. Those are the laser scabs which will soon fall off, showing a more glowing, smoother skin!
How my skin is like now! It's been bout 5 days?
So happy with the results!
Thank you Dr. Ong and The Retreat Clinic.
