Legato - 1st to treat scars and stretch marks

The new Legato machine by Alma lasers arrived today. I only recently heard about it during the media launch of Coolsculpting by Zeltiq last month. Am quite curious to see how it works. As far as I know there are no effective technology to rid of scars and so far stretch marks treated by lasers reduced but still does not dissapear. So we tried on one of our staff with some scars that was left after his motorvehicle accident and I was quite surprised the scars became flattened and seemed to reduce by at least 30-40%! We are going to try out this system for a couple of weeks and see how it performs. I myself am going to ry the facial rejuvenation while I'm gonna try it on a patient with melasma.

Hi doctor! Will stretch marks totally be gone after this procedure? and is it available in singapore? if yes, can I ask for the estimated range of cost for a session?

Stretch marks (striae) will definitely be less obvious with this treatment. Strecth marks can never dissapear as the condition is due to ruptured collagen fibres in the skin and of course what is broken cannot be rejoined. The idea is to stimulate the surrounding healthy collagen fibres which will then contract and form around the stretch marks making them thinner and less obvious.

I am sure Legato is available in Singapore as it is distributed by the same company that distributes it in Malaysia. I am a cliniccian and not part of the supplier/distribution of this equipment. You will need to look for which clinic conducts this procedure yourself. For charges on treatment, please contact our clinic direct at 03-79601788.

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…

How you can improve your skin with Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP .

Many patients ask me about this "blood" treatment. Made popular by Kim Kardashian with her "Vampire Lift" facial several years ago, it took the world by storm and became a very popular method for skin rejuvenation adn improvemet.
Over the years I have conducted many PRP treatments.


So what is PRP therapy ?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment that uses the plasma derived from a person's own blood (autologus) to release growth factors, which are cells that act as messengers to initiate skin cell regeneration.

A small amount of blood is taken and deposited into a special PRP kit. A good kit , like the Regen kit (RegenACR) is able to ensure a big quantity of growth factor(GF) cells in the plasma which will then translate to better effect on the skin.





What is PRP good for?
PRP if used to treat the skin each month, has been shown to give skin homogenecity due to regeneration of new skin. Fine lines are reduced, skin color is lightened and brightened. Overall…
