My Fractional CO2 with PRP experience

Last I had my fractional CO2 with PRP done was August 2009. The effect showed maximally after 3months (90days) and lasted almost the 8months it was expected to. I loved it! My skin finally improved to waht it used to be in my twenties. After much postponing, I finally managed to have another treatment done. Just to share my day to day account of the aftermath of a fractional CO2 :

Day 1 - Immediately after. Face was swollen, red and quite uncomfortable. Stings when water touches it. Tried all the postlaser creams available at our clinic but all of them stings! What helped is the thermal springwater spray (Avene, Uriage) which really have a soothing

Day 2 - some redness have settled and much less stinging is felt. Skin feels very warm to touch and dry.

Day 3 - Face looks a darker shade due to formation of scabs on the little laser 'dots'. No more sting. Redness has turned to patcy pinkishness.

Day 5 - scabs starting to fall off. Mid face area came off first slowly along the sides of face. Once the scabs come off, the smoothness of the skin can seen & felt. I'm looking forward to see what my skin will be next week!

Day 7 - all scabs are gone. Skin is smooth n healthy looking. yeah!

Day 14 - getting comments from people around saying you look "refreshed" n your skin glows! Now for my age that is definitely a welcome comment!

PRP is going to be my new face procedure from now on.
Those interested to do the same, please ask your doctors for PRP therapy combined with Dot laser for the best outcomes.

Hydrafacial vs Silkpeel

Our old but very reliable microdermabrasion Diamond crystal peeling machine broke down after many years of high performance. It was one of our highest performing equipment and it had served us well. My dear Diamond MDA I shall miss you. And although I would like to continue our liaison , it does not see possible anymore as there is no longer a distributor in Malaysia. So, I have been going round researching and looking for a new MDA unit to replace our old one. Some here comes the Silk Peel and Hydra Facial.
Silk Peel conducts both dry microdermabrasion using a diamond tipped hand piece which abates and abrade the upper layers of skin. If desired, a "wet microdermabrasion" can also be conducted using the diamond tip hand piece but while the abrasion is going on, solutions containing micronutrients and hydrating agents are infused alongside. This gives for a more effective treatment as delivery is more efficient as products are more penetrate.
Now, the Hydra Facial?
Well, am …

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem! This method not only can reduce the excess weight fast and permanently, it does this by burning the reserved stubborn fat in the body and not the structural fat which easily returns with a vengeance once a program is over. In summary, this "Enhanced" Weight Loss Program aims to :
1. Loose excess weight esp from stubborn fats
2. Increase and Reset Basal Metabolic Rate to a higher level and by doing the #1 and #2, able to
3. Maintain the weight loss forever! ( don't we all wish for this?) .
With all this in mind, I decided to embark on this program myself. It is Day 8 today. This protocol should reduce my weight from 0.5 to 1.0lb per day. I only need to follow a special diet plan and take the medication daily. Total loss expected if all progresses accordingly will be 6 to 9kg (or upto 15lbs). I started with 64.8kg on Day1, went up to 64.9kg on Day2 and have progressively lost between 0.3 to 0.7kg daily since. Today I am at 62…

SmartLipo - It's Powerful Advantages

SmartLipo vs "Stupid Lipo" When we first started offering the Smartlipo laserlipolisis treatment at our clinic there were many enquiries and interested clients enquiring about this minimally invasive liposuction. This was because apart from liposuction proceudre, there really was nothing else availble that could treat those stubborn fats on the body which just doesn't go away despite exercise and working out. Malaysiasns were also becoming more concious about their looks and health and wanting to look presentable and well groomed was becoming a treand and the norm in society. Basically everyone wants to look good in KL! So I had many patient asked about the difference between SmartLipo laserlipolisis and traditional or conventional liposuction (i called this the "Stupid Lipo"). After explaining to them the difference, I realised I spent most of the time pinpointing the awesome advantages that the SmartLIpo has over any other liposuction or weight loss system! …
