Spectrapeel

Some of you might have been reading about my Enerpeel chemical peel treatments to reduce acne, acne scaring and improve my skintone.

This was my skin on Aug 19 when I first visited Dr Phua at Asiahealthpartners

For some reason my skin is flaring up alot more than usual this year. I’ve never used to get as many spots on my cheeks, chin and even neck area. Lovely Dr Phua then recommended me a series of peels to loosen out clog skin and dead skin cells, and aid in the removal of acne.

I had the Enerpeel Jesnner’s during then.

This was my skin after my 2nd peel done 10 days after the first one . Dated 28th Aug.

I had the Enerpeel – Salicylic acid peel done to dry up the acne i had.

 

2 weeks on: my  journey towards radiant skin continues, and what the Doctor ordered was: Spectrapeel laser.

Things were alot better from when i first entered the clinic looking like the above, however in September – due to my work load and working for nights on end without sufficient sleep. My skin started to flare up much to my dismay. So Suddenly in September this was how my skin looked. I’ve always been 1 to react really badly to the lack of sleep and from stress . hahaha

In this aspect: there’s not alot I can do…isn’t it?

Thank goodness there’s Dr Phua to take care of my skin.

so here goes:

I underwent the Spectra Laser Peel – a powerful yet gentle carbon-assisted laser treatment..

 

Laser Spectra® for Acne
Spectra® Peel is a carbon-assisted laser skin rejuvenation treatment, which uses a photothermal effect and photochemical superficial peeling to control acne inflammation, reduce sebum production, unplug pores and minimize pore size. Spectra® Peel can also improve some acne scars, uneven pigmentation and poor skin texture.

Dead skin, sebum, skin oils and colonizing bacteria (Proprionibacterium acnes) clog pore openings (blackheads and whiteheads) and enlarged pore size all contribute to acne. This safe and non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure is highly effective in controlling oily skin and sebaceous activity; unclogs and minimizes pores to reduce breakouts and improve appearance.

What can Spectra Peel do for me?

Regenerates collagen

Removes surface discoloration

Lightens melasma and spotty pigments

Reduces all types of acne

Evens skin color

Softens skin tone

Decreases pores size

Reduces or removes fine wrinkles

There is minimal discomfort and patients can return to work immediately afterwards. The protocol intervals are between 14 to 21 days with repeated treatments from 4 to 6 treatments for best results. This procedure can be performed on the face, chest or back.

here is what the process is like

 

What makes it special?

It’s highly effective in controlling acne inflammation, reducing excessive oil and sebum production, unclogging pores and minimising pore size. It also reduces redness from past acne inflammation, diminishes brown spots and improves acne scars, uneven skin tone and texture and fine lines.

 

Whom is it for?

Anyone of any age who suffers from acne, enlarged pores, fine wrinkles, oily skin or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

 

How many sessions?

Visible improvement, especially to active acne, can be seen after the first treatment. For optimal results, a series of six treatments at intervals of two to three weeks is recommended.

 

Recovery time?

The treatment takes about 30 minutes and you can resume normal activity immediately afterwards. This was me about to drive home…after treament.

personally it was painless and comfortable enough for me to be talking to the doctor during intervals while i was having my skin treated with the Spectral Peel Laser :) Here’s how the whole experience was for me and perhaps it can benefit you too. Personally I get outbreaks of acne and it is particularly bad this month as I’ve mentioned earlier, I also have open pores which I hope to minimize :) over the next few sessions.

 

Advantages of Spectra Peel

No chemicals to cause adverse reaction to the skin (as found with chemical peel)

No harsh sand papering of the skin (as seen with derma-abrasion)

Ability to return to immediate daily activity, requires no downtime

No scabs, pain, bleeding, or infection (as can happen with laser resurfacing)

All patients regardless of the color of skin can be treated

Is Spectra Peel painful?

A brief heat sensation can be felt each time the laser delivers a beam of light. However, with numbing cream applied before hand, it aids in minimizing this.

When the numbing cream is cleansed off, the clinical assistant helps to apply a coat of carbon onto my face.  Looking like I have a beard, and somewhat like a pirate ? hahah

 

That’s the spectrapeel laser behind me (that black aparatus)

Spectra Laser Treatment explained

 

What is a Spectra VRM III Laser Treatment?

Spectra VRM III is a CE and FDA approved non-ablative laser used in the treatment of many aesthetic conditions. Its advantages of being non-ablative means that it delivers the benefits of much more aggressive procedures
  • without the discomfort and downtime
  • patients return to their normal lives immediately after treatment
  • improved patient satisfaction

When would you need the spectra laser treatment?

This treatment is recommended for people who have:
  • Inflammatory Acne
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Fine Wrinkles
  • Oily Skin
  • Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Melasma (soft laser peel + laser toning)
  • Unwanted tatoos (black, blue, brown, red, tan, purple, orange)

Advantages of Spectra VRM III Laser Treatment

  • This Spectra laser treatment avoids prolonged downtime and PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation) – common with AHA / TCA chemical peels and ablative CO2 lasers.
  • It can also be used in combination with Vit C iontophoresis, LED phototherapy, microdermabrasion, RF, IPL or fractional laser therapy for better outcomes

Mode of Action

Spectra mode
  • photothermal stimulation of the epidermis and dermis
  • gently heats the microfine carbon particles in the SpectraLotion™ and exfoliates the outermost layer of the skin
Acne reduction
Q-switched mode
  • photomechanical destruction of the microfine carbon particles in the SpectraLotion™ along with removal of outermost layer of dead skin
  • skin tone and texture are improved
  • cells associated (fibroblasts, mast cells, macrophages) with skin rejuvenation are stimulated resulting in collagen remodelling

Now for the fun part- :

Here are the results after my first treatment.

This is my skin taken on the 20th of sept. 10 days post treament.

No make up on my cheeks or anything. just lip stick :)

Again for contrast – this was before the SpectraPeel. What do you think? :) My schedule is starting to free up as well, so as much as what the doctor can do for your skin. Your sleep and skincare works together with the treatments administered too.

Doctor Phua mentioned my cleanser might not be working too well for my skin and thus I’ve switched to using Japanese – skincare brand ORBIS which just launched in singapore.
I’ve also switched to Heliocare gel based skinscreen SPF90 and purchased some sunblock pills too :) .

I love the fresh scent of Heliocare gel sunscreen. Most sunscreen have a strange chemical smell but Heliocare doesn’t which is what I love most about it. Heliocare ultra series – is only sold at clinics and you can get them at Asiahealth too. I bought mine at Aesthetics Asia 2013 from Neoasia who’s the distributor of brands such as Neostrata, Enerpeel, Heliocare and more during the tradefair when I was there to interview Dr Marino Petratros, one of the pioneers of chemical peels and laser treatments who practises in NYC. These products are not sold outside of clinics, so you got to get them prescribed or direct from your dermatologists.

Chemical Peels – Enerpeel

Nowadays, one can get a derma peel at your aesthetician’s clinic without undergoing redness, itchiness, and other visible/tangible signs of peeling, there’s no “downtime” so to speak. And you can go back to work without experiencing discomfort, or worse, ridicule from work mates LOL. A perfect lunch time quick fix.

Dr Vanessa recently did an Enerpeel JR on my skin to help remove some scarring and acne that I have lately when I dropped by her clinic at Lucky Plaza.

After treatment,your skin will look younger, tighter and “fresher” than before. I noted that it results in smaller pores too (hurray).

I promise to post pictures of my before and after effects as soon as I can.

This is me removing my make up….

I actually liked their facial wash :) it smells fruity and was very gentle and not drying.

Ok so this is me…sans make up.

 

Lo & Behold. this is ….the current problem I have with my left cheek

:( Dr Vanessa recommended 4 peels – 1 peel per month for my skin. I’ll be posting a photo each week to track the progress :)

Meanwhile : My Doctor has a really cool hello kitty speaker set lol. My mom loves it too.

Here’s an unglam shot of my face being treated lol

Before, those peelers were physical and mechanical exfoliators, your doctor would apply them topically and you would be asked not to go out for some time. Dermatological advances are exponential just like other technologies, everything has improved by leaps and bounds. Let us be thankful that chemical peeling, or “chemoexfoliation” has been fine tuned already, given that these peelers have triple the advantages with reduced complications. It is now localized or more customized; there is an appropriate chemical agent for every skin worry, targeting areas depending on the problem.

Contrary to laser or micro-dermabrasion, chemical peeling does not depend on machines for its effectiveness given that its formulation acts out and solves the problem once they are dispensed by a dermatologist since it contains active ingredients that act in synergy with the body’s aqueous system. One can get chemoexfoliation not just in the face, but other parts as well, like the neck, the back areas, and even hands.

With Enerpeel, a chemoexfoliation can treat keratosis, chrono/photoaging and hyperpigmented lesions or what is popularly known as liver spots in just minutes.

ENERPEEL CHEMICAL PEELS

Chemical skin peels are effective skin treatments used to improve and smooth out the surface of the facial skin. A chemical solution is applied to gently remove the top layer of skin from the patient’s treatment area – usually the face, neck or hands – taking blemishes and signs of ageing with it and promoting skin cell renewal. Peels are a popular option to remove fine lines and wrinkles and to heal skin that has been damaged in other ways.

Superficial chemical peels are a good option for many people as they have a gentler effect and do not give visible skin peeling, inflammation or significant redness compared to medium and deep chemical peels. They can be used on many skin types, with little or no “down time”.

The latest Enerpeel® technology, is a patented carrier solution which restrains the acids activity until it is absorbed to accelerate through the skin, enhancing its activity.

Enerpeel® means uniform and enhanced absorption of the active ingredients; with two to three fold improved skin penetration.

The result:

1) Less surface trauma.
2) Faster surface recovery with erythema reducing rapidly.
3) Enhanced remodeling/collagen stimulation.

FAQsWhat Happens During a Chemical Peel?
During a chemical peel, the patient’s treatment area will be cleansed thoroughly, and the chemical peel is applied to the skin using a gentle brush. After treatment, a soothing cream is applied, and sun protection is reinforced.

Does it hurt?
Some patients will experience a mild tingling sensation for five to ten minutes, which can be followed by a stinging sensation. These are usually temporary.

Who May Benefit from a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels can be used to treat a wide range of problems, and are not just an anti-ageing solution. Chemical peels are commonly used to reduce and treat:

Acne
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Age Spots, Freckles and Dark Spots
Dehydrated, Dull Skin
Mild Scars
Rough Skin Texture

How Many Peels Do I Need?
Whilst you may see some minor benefits after a single peel, doctors recommend a course of about 4 peels, each 1 week apart as the full benefits of the peel builds up over a course of treatments.

Is it safe?
Yes, chemical peels are generally very safe. Some people – those who take birth control pills or fall pregnant after the treatment – may be at risk of experiencing a colour change in their skin after the procedure, but this should be fully explored and discussed at consultation.

Treatment starts from $180 per session at various aesthetics clinics.

There are many types of Enerpeels of which I’ve tried JR and MA.

Enerpeel® for the Eyes and LipsEnerpeel® EL is a gel-based solution that is especially designed for the sensitive eye and lip areas. At FreshSkin we  increase the concentration by layering the product/ This allows us to achieve similar result as we would with a high strength acid, but without the irritation and redness.

Enerpeel® by MAEnerpeel® MA is a great “all purpose” peel.   It is a non-aggressive, yet high performing treatment that can be used in all seasons and with any skin type and is especially effective on Rosacea prone skin.

Enerpeel® by SASalicylic Acid 30%

This skin peel is specifically designed for acne sufferers. Its oil production reducing effect, along with two other active ingredients – triethyl citrate and ethyl linoleate – have been shown to reduce the four main visible signs of acne. This skin peel is particularly effective during the inflammatory phase of acne that is characterised by papules and pustules.

Enerpeel®PAEnerpeel® PA contain several solutions that are effective at decreasing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature skin aging as well as seborrhea, mild hyperpigmentation and in cases of stubborn acne.

Enerpeel®JREnerpeel® JR contains salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol, (Jessner’s formula) but utilizing Glytone’s ENERPEEL technology allowing for a superficial to medium exfoliation and very little downtime. Enerpeel® JR is very helpful at improving hyperpigmentation and melasma, and leaves the skin looking  younger,  tighter and “fresher” than before.

There’s also Enerpeel for eyelids

Here’s a video that illustrates how it works

SOLTA Medical – Thermage Total Tip


Thermage® Total Tip 3.0, a highly effective treatment tip for face and neck as well as other body treatments that offers the earliest visible results in Thermage treatment history in addition to the consistent long-term results. Targeted, uniform, bulk heating allows dermatologists to treat patients effectively while maintaining patient comfort.

Upon Solta Medical’s invitation, I brought my mom to an aesthetics clinic for the Thermage® Total Tip 3.0 treatment trial. It is the latest in skin rejuvenation for women who want to reverse or prevent the signs of aging. It is also used to sculpt My mom is 59, she doesn’t have much wrinkles but well – it’s a part of aging. Skin loses collagen and starts to sag so the common problem areas – are places like your laugh lines and cheek, as well as your eyes where your skin tends to be alot thinner.

This is my mom, myself, and a friendly burmese Python that belongs to a local snake charmer :) Just for illustration haha

Meet my mom :) Here are a few pictures of her skin before we consulted our aesthetics doctor. The things i put my mom through…. lol

The lines on the left and right sides of her face are also unequal which our pretty doc quickly identified that this was caused by sleeping on your side at night (so ladies, as much as possible, sleeping faced up will be better for your skin!)

 

The Total Tip safely delivers as much as two times greater bulk heating volume which allows more tissue to be heated to higher temperatures, delivering better results. Thermage has had 10 years of technological refinement, and patients continue to see results that are more consistent and superior to what we saw in the past.”

Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to non-invasively help smooth, and contour the skin, as well as temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite, in a single treatment with little to no downtime. The Thermage Total Tip is effective for facial treatments because it delivers uniform, volumetric bulk heating. This heat is dispersed through the vascular structures, which are more abundant on the face than other body areas. This dispersal and uniformity of energy may lead to increased patient tolerability and allows practitioners to deliver an efficient volume of heat on the face, with highly positive outcomes. Patients notice both early and long-term results.

In the consultation room, our beautiful doctor took us through the process on how Thermage works.

My mom has only but once undergone laser to remove some dark spots that started to show on her skin a few years ago when she went to Sunny Nepal for a church mission trip. She didn’t use sunscreen then but was a convert ever since. She’s also not the type who looks to botox nor fillers so when I told her about Thermage she was quite excited :)

To understand how Thermage Total Tip 3.0 works, let’s start with behaviors of skin. (taken from http://www.lajollalight.com)

Our skin’s surface is just the beginning of three intricate layers that composes the entire organ. Collagen stands support and build up the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis, keeping it strong and wrinkle-free in the younger years. But because collagen strands are essentially built as coil-like structures, they can become unwound with the natural process of aging. In time, collagen strands become uncoiled and can no longer support the skin’s surface, leading to wrinkled skin and loss of elasticity.

But the typical aging process can be reversed at the cellular level with Thermage Total Tip 3.0 – a leading cosmetic treatment that uses heat to shrink existing collagen strands while producing new collagen over time.

Heat is an essential component to the skin’s tightening process. Just as cotton t-shirts will shrink in a hot dryer, as will collagen strands when Thermage Total Tip 3.0 is applied to the skin. The diminished springiness of an older collagen strand is immediately tightened with the use of heat, while more collagen is produced.

When consultation was done, an assistant then brought my mom to the treatment room equipped with a tiny room for you to remove your make up and wash your face to prepare for treatment.

In this picture you can see the unequal lines on her cheeks, as well as lip area.

Now, numbing cream is applied before treatment to soothe the skin by the clinic assistant.

This is left on for about 15minutes and then washed away just before treament.

Here are some of the equipment/peripherals used during the process. (See the Hello Kitty in the background? that’s a super cute speaker than our lovely Doctor used to play music during treatment hehe)

Heres’ the Tip . They are all made for 1 time usage only.

Proprietary coupling fluid

 

The return pad..

  • A fluid called coupling fluid is applied to the treatment areas. This provides a conductive medium to ensure good electrical and thermal contact with the skin and the treatment tip.
  • Via the treatment tip, a combination of cooling spray and RF energy is delivered. The cooling spray continuously cools the outer layers of the skin to prevent any burning.
  • Depending on your pain threshold, you may feel nothing, mild warmth, intense warmth (heat), or possibly pain with each application of energy.
  • Throughout the procedure, your doctor/nurse will need feedback from you about your perception of heat and the level of pain or discomfort you are experiencing. RF levels will be adjusted up or down accordingly so that therapeutic levels of heat are achieved without excessive discomfort.
  • Treatment time varies according to area(s) treated and the number of times the tip is passed over the skin. A Thermage procedure can take anything between 1 to 2 hours from start to end.
  • The system houses a canister of coolant that can be used for an average of three to six procedures, depending on the total skin surface area treated and the treatment tip used. Each patient procedure also requires a return pad, which is typically adhered to the patient’s lower back to allow a path of travel for the RF current through the body and back to the generator.

There are actually many types of tips

 

So here’s mom – all ready to undergo the treatment :)

The machine started with 900 reps, and I think the Doctor applied perhaps 700 over pulses to my mom’s face.

The results are almost instant – here’s a photo to illustrate.

I requested for our Doctor to treat just half of mom’s face so show this.

Check out the instant face lift – One of my mom’s brows is higher than the other now after having just half her face treated. The lines near her nose is also alot lesser then the other side.

Afterwhich when treatment was done, the doctor applied her fomulation of BB cream, as well as sunscreen. Here’s my mom happy as a clam :)

Treatment results peak in about 2 months or more – as your skin continually produces and renews its Collagen.

Visible results may be immediate, and they may appear over time in the course of your body’s natural collagen rebuilding process. For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session. Results can last years depending on your skin condition and aging process.

A post treatment session has been scheduled with the doctor for my mom to review the efficacy of Thermage and the results , in approximately 1 month time from the date of when she first underwent Thermage.

More updates on the results coming soon in the next post :)
