Veritas Medical Aesthetics - My JOURNEY TO BETTER SKIN PART 2



Hi guys, I know it's been awhile *WAVES* :D

          

I've been so so caught up with life and work these few months =/
It has really been exhausting for myself honestly and I'm really thankful that I did manage to take a short breather away to Batam :D

ANYWAYS, if you guys follow me on my instagram and have been watching my instastories, you guys would have known that I have been undergoing Laser Treatment sessions for my acne prone skin with Dr Chua Cheng Yu for the past 9 months.

Previously as per shared, you guys would know that I have been receiving treatments with Dr Chua at thefacedoctor since beginning of the year and I have been really pleased with the results of the laser.

IT HAS BEEN LIFE CHANGING FOR ME. IM NOT KIDDING.

My JOURNEY TO BETTER SKIN PART 1 can be viewed here 


And I am very excited to share with everyone that, DR CHUA HAS STARTED HIS VERY OWN CLINIC, VERITAS MEDICAL AESTHETICS!

Located conveniently at CAPITOL PIAZZA, the clinic is a stone's throw away from City Hall Mrt :D
For office ladies, you can get your quick fix of laser/aesthetic treatments during your lunch hour.


As Dr Chua has been really busy with the preparations of his clinic, I stopped laser treatments for about 3 months.


So he is reviewing my skin to check on the condition and I am really glad to say that the past 6 months Laser Treatment conditioned my skin a lot.
But still my skin still needs further conditioning because I still have acne scarring and acne breakout before/during my period.

But i must say the stubborn reddish marks don't stay that long on my skin anymore and the dull skin tone is almost gone too.


 Time to cleanse my skin! 

Here is Esther cleansing my skin for me, ensuring all make up is removed and all impurities are removed from my skin as well.


My skin with no make up on except the Lip stain on my lips.



And now time for the laser treatment!

Knowing Dr Chua for the past half a year, you can expect nothing but quality!

He brought in this new Laser machine, Fotona StarWalker® which is more powerful than the previous QSwitch Laser that treated my skin before.


Why is StarWalker better than QSwitch Laser?

 The multi-modal Acne Laser Facial Technology uses a range of picosecond to long pulse technology to treat severe and recurring acne problems.

 Picosecond technology uses pulse widths a-trillionth of a second to achieve better results with lesser downtime and side effects. 

This treatment uses three different lasers to achieve acne removal by killing the bacteria in acne, eliminate acne scars as well as shrink the sebaceous glands to prevent recurrence of acne. The skin texture is also improved with natural stimulation of collagen to shrink pores and reduce wrinkles. 

Can you imagine using one machine with multiple modes to treat different kinds of acne?!


With the use of a multi-modal approach, it means there is minimum down time with lesser number of sessions needed. 

This treatment is recommended to be done every 2 – 4 weeks, depending on doctor’s consultation


Yes, this is me, squirming because I've not done laser sessions for awhile and honestly, it was slightly more painful as compared to the other lasers sessions I did before.

Firstly, because this is a stronger machine and Dr Chua increased the frequency of the laser.

A few times I was squirming and Dr Chua asked if everything was okay hahahaha
He blew cold air on my face to relieve the pain on my skin but but due to my sinus nose problems, I told him to just blow the cold air on my forehead.

I told myself, I ONLY WANT THE BEST FOR MY SKIN, I SHALL JUST BEAR WITH IT.

Ah, the price of beauty. :(


He also applied the warm laser on specific areas that I usually have acne/acne scars.
I like this warming laser though hahaha :D



After the laser treament, my skin is reddish.
Especially the areas that were specifically targetted for acne/acne scarring.

This Hydro machine will help to cool your skin down and reduce redness in skin!
 I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS hahahaha

The nurse will apply this cold, cooling gel all over your skin and use the applicator around your face.

As you can see below, after one round of application on my skin, skin isn't so red except for certain areas on my face.


TADAH!!!

This is a bare faced me and my very first laser session with Veritas!

What are the benefits of this laser treatment:
·        Control active acne from mild comedonal to severe nodular acne.
·        Keep shiny and oily skin under control by regulating sebum production.
·        Reduce and unclog larges pores to prevent blackheads and whiteheads.
·        Lighten acne scarring from previous acne episodes.
·        Exfoliate dead cells to correct surface irregularities.

Here's a very big THANK YOU to Dr Chua Cheng Yu for always taking excellent care of my skin!
Under his meticulous effort and care, my skin has improved tremendously over a period of 9 months with him.

Seeing is really believing.
AND  THE PHOTOS ABOVE ARE REAL AND NOT PHOTOSHOPPED.

Many of my friends who know me in real life see the results in my skin and how has it transformed so much for the better.

Having good skin does increase my confidence and saves me much more time in mornings especially on days that I wake up late OOPS hahaha :x
