My experience with Premier Clinic - Subcision treatment

"The true Losers in Life, are not those who Try and Fail, but those who Fail to Try.” 
The above quotes mean to encourage those who failed before and it's not end of the day, so stand up and be confidence to try again. By the way, good day to all my beloved followers, how many all of you lack of self confidence? So do I... Most likely I guess 80% of people is not satisfied with their appearance. But why? Because we ain't born in perfect or perhaps it is our skin problem. We have many type of skin problems likes - oily skin that cause acne and scaring, dry skin cause pigmentation and over weight cause unhealthy body. How can we solve this problem? And who able to help people like us? Well, guess what... I am grateful to have this trustable aesthetic clinic consultation by Premier Clinic.


Premier Clinic offers a wide range of aesthetic services and they have 2 branches in Taman Tun Dr Ismail and another in Bangsar. I went to the TTDI's branches and my first impression was the staff and nurses are welcoming and friendly, making the visit a pleasant one.

I went to Premier Clinic to do my acne scaring progress, I had serious acne problem before and it left acne scar on my face. So, I am here to share my laser treatment - Subcision combined with Fractional CO2 Laser. Dr Kee Yong Seng is my consultation doctor and we have a short discussion about my various skin concern before my treatment.




Consultation by Dr Kee Yong Seng 

WHAT CAUSES ACNE SCARRING?

Acne scarring is a direct result of the presence of acne and can often be determined by inflamed skin which can appear swollen or red. It can also appear after the acne has cleared or when an individual picks or squeezes the pimples, which can further inflame the skin and worsen the condition.

A natural occurring substance known as collagen will be produced which is needed for the skin to repair itself. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, depressed or raised acne scars will form respectively.

WHAT IS SUBCISION?

This is a minor surgical technique that is utilised in order to treat depressions and dimples that come about as a result of acne scarring on the face. It is an effective treatment that is suitable for all skin types, and typically improves the depth of these depressions and dimples by up to 50%.

A local anaesthesia will be applied to your skin which effectively renders the procedure painless, after which a small needle will be inserted into the skin. Our doctors will use the needle to break up bands of fibrous tissue which hold the skin down. This fibrous tissue is the cause of depressions, dimples and scarring and breaking it up will allow the skin to heal properly, generating new cells to fill in the gaps made. After the procedure, compression bandages are applied and patients are usually able to drive home unaided.

POST-TREATMENT

There is some minor downtime associated with this treatment, and patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities for 48 hours following subcision. Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics as a precaution or preventive measure. Side effects may include bruising and minor pigmentation on the treatment area, which will subside anywhere between 3 months to 1 year.

The results are permanent and are usually noticeable after 2-3 treatments, but this may vary from patient to patient. During consultation, your doctor will determine an appropriate number of treatment sessions in order to get the best results possible. Treatment may also be combined with Derma roller, Fractional CO2 laser or PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy for optimum results – do consult your doctor to find out which treatments work best for you.

WHAT CAUSES DULL SKIN?

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to your skin looking old and dull. The city lifestyle exposes your skin to a lot of dust and pollution, which settles on your skin and gives it a dull appearance. In addition, the stress caused by a taxing job and the city lifestyle could also be contributing to your less than perfect outlook. A lack of sleep could also be to blame and is often the cause of dark eye circles, eye bags and even early wrinkling.

You don’t even have to be living a hectic lifestyle to suffer from dull skin. Overexposure or even underexposure to the sun may affect your skin – be sure to use a high SPF cream if you are going to be under the sun for long periods of time, although it is best not to be under the sun for too long. You may also consider reducing your intake of coffee and tea as it dehydrates the skin and may lead to wrinkles. Another factor might be not removing makeup foundation before going to bed, as this prevents your pores from breathing.

HOW CAN IT BE TREATED?

Dull skin can be treated using a new technology known as Fractional Laser Resurfacing (Lux1540, non-ablative). This treatment utilises laser energy micro beams to penetrate and break down skin tissue, leaving behind your old skin to be replaced by new, healthy skin that grows over the treatment area. The results are similar to that of deep chemical peels or ablative laser resurfacing, but does not come with the discomfort or the regular downtime. As your skin heals naturally, the new layer will be glowing and much more radiant than its dull predecessors. No visible wounds are left on your skin during the procedure and you are free to apply make-up immediately after it.


At last, after an hour of treatment, I am very satisfied with my treatment by Dr Kee. Furthermore, I do not feel any pain when the laser were shot on my face, I never like creepy machine sound and afraid of pain too. Anyway, my face was a bit swollen after the treatment and don't forget to apply sun block. (Forgive me for showing my naked face) :P
