MY FIRST FACIAL LASER EXPERIENCE WITH RJ CLINIC

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


Yes, 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!
