MY FIRST FACIAL LASER EXPERIENCE WITH RJ CLINIC

I'm concerned by my skin texture and its flaws, like all the time. 


Yes, me.

me

Eventhough after some heavy foundations + concealers can concealed what seems to be my skin's flaws I may "looked" okay, it still bothers me so much to know that my skin are not as smooth as others and it may have bring me some issues when clients are super picky with model's skin texture. 



And I found that it's hard to look good on video when the acne scars are so obvious under certain kind of lighting and videos are extremely hard to do editing when it comes to flaws, and it really got me feeling jealous of others who have smooth skin texture that they literally are the "I woke up like this" group of people.


And not to mention fine lines and acnes that pops up here and there.
Life's hard all the time don't you think?


Hence when I found out that RJ Clinic (formerly known as Renee Clinic) has this Sublative Laser Resurfacing treatment that treats skin's acne scars, fine lines and even out skin texture, I'm eager to know more about it and try it out. I went to their branch that's located at Rivercity, Jln Ipoh. 





The interior of the clinic is so sparkly clean and pretty it literally put my house to shame. I felt so relaxed and awed by its classic elegant interior design and it kinda soothes the nervousness of mine because this place doesn't feels like a clinic at all. I was served with coffee while waiting to meet Dr. Cheok for my consultation session.



All the certs and awards of the two doctors from RJ Clinic -  Dr. Cheok and Dr. Renee attained



So here's some background of RJ Clinic and the two doctors who runs it:
  • Both of them are qualified, aesthetician physicians (doctor) with Letter of Credentialing & Privileging (LCP)
  • One of the TOP 10 best aesthetic clinic in Malaysia
  • more than 3000 patients treated





personalised consultation session


I'm very honest with Dr. Cheok that I have zero knowledge regarding aesthetic procedures because I don't feel like doing anything "major" on my face, I just want my skin texture to smoothen and even out, and acne scars to disappear, it will be great if fine lines can be remove as well (Do I sounded demanding? lololol)


He explained to me in patience everything about the Sublative Laser Resurfacing procedure, and what will I get as result alongside with some before & after photos from previous cases of patients he treated with said laser treatment. I know that this procedure has some down time for recovery process as well. 



WHAT IS SUBLATIVE LASER RESURFACING?


This FDA approved laser treatment uses radio frequency energy to contact deeper skin layer's connective tissue and it stimulates the tissue hence skin surface is lifted, fine lines and scars are lighten bit by bit after a few treatments without any unnatural appearances. 


Anesthetic (numbing cream) will be applied onto my face and after 30 mins of waiting time, the Sublative Laser Resurfacing procedure will take about 40mins to be done. Down time (recovery) is about 3 days - 1 week depends on skin condition. After thoroughly understand what will be done, expected result as well as the after effect, I'm good to go!



Let's took some before and after photo



It's fine if you show up to the clinic with full makeup because the nurses there have some good skill in removing makeups as well as cleaning up your face that it almost felt like facial session and I'm falling asleep!



make sure my face is squeaky clean before applying numbing cream







anesthetic procedure done and then I'll have to wait for 30 minutes for the numbing sensation to work


Luckily I have super comfortable bed as well as some TV entertainment 


Can even goof around while waiting lololol
Hahahaha never see myself like this before, I can't feel my face at all!



After waited for the anesthetic to work, Dr. Cheok made some final explanation of my face condition and is ready to hit my face with the laser gun.



Okay, I'm not gonna lie, it does hurt a bit... Maybe my tolerance to pain has went lower throughout these years and I needed a stress ball to release my tension. Dr. Cheok was nice to wait for my nervousness went over before he continue to finish the whole process, it was rare to see such patient doctor in Malaysia nowadays. 








Each and every skin area of my face are run through with the laser gun at least 2 - 3 times depends on my skin condition and right after the process done, I can feel the heat sensation on my face. Great, that means that the radio frequency energy is working underneath my skin layer and I can't wait for the down time to be over!


Dr. Cheok applied moisture cream with UV protection onto my face


I was given some cleansing gel and moisturiser after the laser treatment and was told to avoid UV at all times as my skin is in fragile state and extra UV might darken the pigmentation and forms unwanted pigmentation while skin is healing. I literally hide at home for 2 days post treatment and slabs on tons of UV protection before I head out on the 3rd day.


POST TREATMENT RECOVERY PROCESS

DAY 1- Redness and sore, I still can feel the heat on my face.

Day 2 - Not so much heat was felt, scabs are forming and redness reduced.


Day 3 - No more heat sensation on skin, scabs has harden and I applied tons of sunscreen before head out

Day 4 - It has healed 60% I would say? Just waiting for the remaining scabs to remove itself 



Here's an even more accurate before and after laser treatment comparison photo:




My unevenness has been smoothen out A LOT after I did the Sublative Laser Resurfacing treatment and also I felt that my skin appear brighter and firmer too compare to before! My skin condition has balance out a bit hence it was not as oily as my skin used to be, honestly I'm really happy about the result! 



So in terms of cost saving + visible result, I think Sublative Laser Resurfacing treatment from RJ Clinic is really the best choice if you were like me want remove visible acne scars and increase evenness on skin surface and skin tone. Just look at the before and after photos of mine you'll definitely notice the difference. This laser treatment is priced at RM1500 per treatment for whole face and they're having a buy 3 treatment package FREE 1 treatment promo, and don't forget to quote another promo code of mine "REIKOxLASER" to get free silkpeel facial with every treatment purchased!


To a smoother and brighter future!

BALLIN WITH MY SHINY MERC

*trying hard to look cool with my title lololol*


Sorry for the "showing off" tone on my title but I really meant it with the term  "shiny Merc"! All thanks to Ceramic Pro who brings life to my car after a year driving it without those protection coatings. 





2 years ago, when Fei (my bf) purchased his new car, he did some research on car coatings and window tinting services available in Malaysia and came across Ceramic Pro Malaysia which by then located at Glenmarie area. We traveled all the way from Batu Caves to Subang just because there are a lot tons of positive reviews from other car owners. It was a pleasant experience back then and we're pretty much satisfied with the products and services for the money we paid. 



2 years later, Ceramic Pro has opened up a new branch in Setia Alam and I decided to send my another car to do the coating because I'm sick and tired of having to clean my car often due to Malaysian weather  (right after you wash your car it decided to rain so more dust stick on the car, anyone get me and my pain??? lol). Fei's car still looking new and shiny after two years hence I made up my mind to send my car to Ceramic Pro.








So what's Ceramic Pro and why Ceramic Pro?


Technically speaking, Ceramic Pro is a type of clear, ceramic coating that can be applied in multiple layers that can be transformed into permanent durable but flexible ceramic shield after polymerization (chemical reaction). It has self cleaning properties as well as 3 times more hardness compare to car body alone.




This nanoceramic company established its name since year 2010 and till today, they have more than 5000 installers worldwide and are available in more than 70 countries worldwide. All products within the Ceramic Pro range has proven non-toxic and has been extensively tested by SGS.



Of course, best part of this coating to me is the self cleaning effect! I love how easy to clean Fei's car after he did the coating. Literally any type of common stain ( I don't know bout marker pen or crayon stains from kids tho, you might want to check with Ceramic Pro) you might encounter during your drive - mud, dust, bird shit etc... Just rinse them with water and wipe them away! As easy as that!



And also, your car will always look brand new too due to the coating. Even if it doesn't shine bright anymore, they have 5-10 years of warranty depends on the package you choose from so you can always bring your car back to their service centre to do the coating maintenance again. The whole process will took about 8 hours so make sure you block your day when send your car to Ceramic Pro for the coating service (or maybe give yourself a break, just chill at their lounge area or take grab to nearest Setia Alam Mall for a movie!).

I'm the first customer to arrive on that day and I left my car there and head to one of the cafe that's located just few minutes grab drive away. I took the GOLD PACKAGE which consist 6 layers of nano ceramic coating as well as 7 years warranty. The person in charge of Ceramic Pro Setia Alam branch - Lucas is so helpful and kind that he updates me each and every step of the process that's been done onto my car when I was away. It's by then only I realise my car's body have so many stone chips and scratches.





These are the process Ceramic Pro Malaysia does their coating on your car:

STEP 1: CAR WASH & CLAY BAR PROCESS

STEP 2: PAINT CORRECTION

STEP 3: CERAMIC PRO COATING APPLICATION

STEP 4: INFRARED CURING PROCESS

STEP 5: MAGNUS PRO PAINT PROTECTION FILM


And voilà! Car will be as good as new! I can't believe my eyes after I saw the differences between before and after photos that Ceramic Pro sent to me. The 1 year old car has transform into a brand new car after one day of coating process. It's kinda amazing if you ask me.









Those minor scratches are gone after the coating process, like a magic touch from photoshop except it is done by professional well-trained staff who are very good at what they're doing. They take their job seriously and make sure each and every surface of my car are well polished and covered in coatings.  I'm seriously impressed by their serious working attitude when I was back from lunch and saw my car still undergo coating process.

Ceramic Pro Coating application



Not just car body, even the smaller parts like headlights and inner surface of door handle are protected using Magnus Pro's Paint Protection Film to avoid scratches on those areas. For my package, basically everything from exterior to interior is coated with Ceramic Pro except for my engines. It really does make my car washing task become easier as I just need to clean my car with normal soap and no waxing required at all!

If you are very much afraid of hassles like me but at the same time enjoy a clean-looking car for most of the day, I really do highly recommend Ceramic Pro Malaysia and their services. Not just their products last long and also deliver maximum results, the professional and friendly staff do gives me good impression and made me enjoyed their services. This is why I choose to protect my car with Ceramic Pro, and it's already my second engagement with them!
