Hydrafacial & Q-Switch Laser Treatment at Clifford Aesthetics

Disappointed with the results of your regular facial parlour?

Although more expensive, facial treatments at aesthetic clinics such as The Clifford Aesthetics use high tech machines and high quality products to pamper your skin!

My first time doing a facial at an aesthetic clinic, I tried out The Clifford Aesthetic’s Hydrafacial. This was coupled with the Q-Switch Laser treatment which helps to target pimples, pigmentation and pores without any downtime!

Let’s go into the Hydrafacial first!

The Hydrafacial is perfect for you if your skin has the following isuses:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor skin tone
  • Loss of elasticity and firmness
  • Hyperpgimentatation
  • Oil and congestion
  • Advanced signs of aging

The Hydrafacial integrates cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and hydration simultaneously, cleaning and revitalizing your skin thoroughly.

There are 5 main steps for this facial:

  1. Cleansing and Exfoliation to remove dead skin cells
  2. Acid Peel: To loosen dirt and soften black and white heads
  3. Extraction using vortex suction
  4. Hydration: Antioxidants and Hyaluronic are Vortex-Fused to nourish and protect your skin + Application of Anti-wrinkle to lower eye
  5. Protection: HydraFacial daily essentials will be used to protect your skin and maintain results

The therapist uses this nozzle to apply the products onto your face and you basically just experience a light suction feeling on your skin.

Say bye to painful squeezing of pimples and black heads! Those usually also leave marks and have downtime for up to 2 days. With the Hydrafacial, there’s no redness and downtime at all!

The treatment takes only 30 minutes so its a perfect lunch time treatment. Pop into the clinic and be out showing your colleagues your new smooth skin.


 

Q switch

(Machine used for Q-Switch laser)

If you have stubborn pigmentation that requires more attention, couple the Hydrafacial with the Q-Switch Laser.

Q-switch laser is the ideal lunchtime laser for common pigmentation and aging problems.  Melasma, freckles and acne scars are common types of hyperpigmentation that can occur even with good lifestyle and skincare habits. I know many people tend to think freckles look cute. However, they can grow into large brown spots as you age!

The Q-switch laser has been proven to erase hyper-pigmentation with low downtime.

How does Q-switched laser treatment work?

The Q-Switch Laser treatment works by generating a high-energy laser on the affected area. The laser energy pulse breaks down the pigments into mini-pigments, which is absorbed by the skin, and then destroyed by the body’s lymphatic system.

How many treatments are needed?

This is a common question as many of you are concerned about the cost required and time needed to see results.

The answer to this question depends on the type of pigmentation you have. Some pigments can be effectively removed in one or two sessions, whereas some pigments may need several repeated sessions of the laser. A single treatment can result in the removal of 75-100% of an individual brown spot. The friendly doctor Gerard Ee will advise you on how many sessions you will require to achieve your desired skin.

Some added bonuses of the treatment is the reduction of damage caused by harmful sun exposure, and the increased collagen and elastin levels which maintain both elasticity and firmness in your skin.

Is it safe?

The Q-Switch Laser treatment is FDA approved and clinically proven for the removal of both superficial and deep hyperpigmented lesions. The procedure is 100% safe and comes without side effects.

Is it painful?

You will be surprised how comfortable the 15-minute laser procedure actually is, with it being comparable to a rubber band snapping on your skin. You basically feel a zapping sensation, but nothing you can’t bear. However, you can request using a numbing cream if you really very scared of pain.

(P.s I was strong so I didn’t use any numbing cream. hahhahahha)

Is there any down time?

There is almost no downtime for Q switch laser and you can expect to return to your daily activities and work without interruptions.
Erythema (skin redness) is expected after Q switch laser and this usually fades in a maximum of 1 hour. You can choose to apply makeup after laser
Urticaria (hives) can occur occasionally and this can be reversed with medications.

Clifford

So this is me face immediately after the Q-Switch. As you can tell, there are some red marks on my face.

The pigmented area on my skin was destroyed by the Q-switch laser which results in the area turning red. A scab (a dry, rough protective crust that forms over a cut or wound during healing) will form and fall off in a few days.

This is me face again on the next day, aka D+1.

Enhance your natural beauty with Kowayo Aesthetics!

I have always been really hesistant to do nose fillers as much as I’ve wanted to because I didn’t want to look too fake and I was scared that somewhere along the way my nose would fall or concave.But when I met Dr Wong from Kowayo Aesthetics, I was reassured that it would be a painless, non-invasive process, and that he would enhance my looks without making me look too unnatural.

Quoting Dr Wong, Medical Director of Kowayo Aesthetic: “Beauty is achieving a sense of pleasure and harmony; and aesthetics treatments are done to enhance beauty in a natural way,”

Mentored and trained by top aesthetic specialists in Hong Kong and Singapore, Dr Wong believes that aesthetic enhancements should be as natural-looking and sustainable as possible, so clients will look like the best versions of themselves. 

By today’s beauty standards, a perfect nose is often described as one with a relatively straight bridge and defined tip. I mean I have never been totally in love with my nose, always felt that the tip was a bit too broad and squishy heh.

SOOOO, here goes.

They apply some numbing cream for about 5-10 mins.

I enter this room, that looks kinda surgical. So clean, so neat.

It was impossible to take pictures of the procedure, so let me attempt to describe it.

Firstly, Dr Wong injects painkillers into my nose.
Now, this jab was painful but still bearable.

Next, he changes the tip to start injecting the Hyaluronic Acid into my nose. He injected up into my nose bridge, so that it would be more defined and also filled up my nose tip so that it would rise nicely to match.
This part did not hurt AT ALL.
Dr Wong does not finish the whole filling process in one shot.
Rather, he would stop and take a step back to see if more is necessary and whether the overall look is okay.

The whole procedure took less than 30 mins, I swear.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are a good choice for nose fillers in Singapore and a good alternative to invasive procedures such as implant surgery, while still being able to create a beautiful facial shape. These fillers are bio-compatible and can be reversed if needed, making it very safe for facial contouring use.

The procedures for chin fillers, cheek fillers and nose fillers may all be completed in 1 session. Results are fast with pain being minimal!

Now, let’s look at the results.

Armed with a steady hand and an immaculate eye for detail, Dr Wong uses minimal injections to rejuvenate and enhance his patient’s features using carefully injected nose fillers. His skilled technique is able to use fillers to sharpen not just the nose, but also extends to chin sharpening and adding volume to your cheeks and to enhancing the lips.

Dr Wong Kee Seng is a physician registered with the Singapore Medical Council (SMC). He obtained his post-graduate qualification MRCP from the Royal College of Physicians, United Kingdom. With special interest in dermatology, he completed his study in Diploma of Practical Dermatology in Cardiff, UK. He is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic and also an appointed trainer for dermal filler company. A seasoned veteran in the aesthetic arena, he will customize a set of fuss-free, effective & non-invasive treatment to achieve your desired results!

Downtime is also a major consideration for many patients due to their hectic work and life schedules. As such, these filler treatments for the nose, cheek and chin have been designed at Kowayo to heal fast, resulting in minimal downtime.

​​The clinic caters to the working crowd and busy professionals, which is why its services are mainly “lunchtime” treatments with little downtime. This means you can pop in and out of the clinic, looking the best version of yourself in just a few minutes!
