Wecomed Clinic Q-Switched Nd YAG laser Review
I have been concerned of some little freckles appearing on my face which are mainly hormonal and genetic known as Melasma as my mum and aunts all have them so I know when I get older, I am quite certain that I would also get them if I don’t take care of my face. Melasma is a common pigmentation disorder seen in Asian women.
Melasma usually starts at sun exposure area such as cheeks, forehead, and upper lips, which presented as irregular brownish pigments and gradually spreading to other area of face. Melasma can be both superficial and deep pigmentation. It is one of the most difficult pigmentation disorders to treat.
Even though I always apply sunblock on my face I am starting to see little light brown spots on my cheek area surfacing.
Although I take good care of my face, I am always lazy to apply sun block on my arms. I am wearing sleeveless most of the time so on my shoulders and arms there are many sun spots appear on the sun-exposed areas and undoubtedly the UV rays are the main culprits. I decided to go to Wecomed Clinic as they are a very professional aesthetic clinic specialised in treating pigmentation problems!
Wecomed Clinic made me feel very welcome the moment I stepped in with their friendly staffs and comfortable environment. They have clinics in Singapore and Malaysia with Dr. Lucas Chia as the medical director being an expert in dealing with age spots/pigmentations with extensive national media coverage.
Dr.Chia spent a lot of his time during the first consultation to educate me on the different types of pigmentations(that is why at the start of my post I sound like an pigmentation expert right? 🙂 haha) and problems that his lasers can treat like my enlarged pores, uneven skin tone …etc. I mentioned that my skin is very sensitive therefore I cannot take abrasive lasers or accept any lasers that will give me any down time. And also my very low tolerance for pain. I am one of those hard to please customer – this cannot that cannot but want results. 🙂
Dr Chia recommended me the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser.
At Wecomed Clinic they have the RevLite® Laser which is a next generation of Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser technology that has been studied in numerous clinical trials and approved by the FDA for successful treatment of pigmentation disorders. It utilizes PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) to deliver very narrow pulse widths at peak energy to vibrate and fragment the pigments. In comparison to other Q-Switched Nd:YAG lasers, RevLite® Laser delivers the energy in its hallmark flap-top beam profile, without spikes or hot spots. This has enabled highly effective procedures with less heat and increased safety.
What skin conditions can be treated by RevLite® laser?
– Birthmarks (Nevus of Ota, Café-au-lait, Port-Wine Stains)
– Acquired Pigments (Melasma, Sun Spots, Aging Spots, Hori’s Nevus, Freckles)
– Vascular Lesion (Telangiectasia, Spider Nevi, Cherry Angiomas)
– Dermal Lesions
– Tattoo Removal
– Wrinkle Reduction
– Removal of Fine Hair
– Acne Scar Improvement
– Improvement of Oily Face
– Reduction of Pore Size With Smoother Texture
Unlike other lasers that I have tried before like fractional lasers and clear & brilliant lasers. This Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser gives quick tingling sensations, like very tiny rubber bands snapped against the skin. The whole process happened very quickly and no numbing cream was applied on my face.
I was surprised that wasn’t any redness or discomfort at all after the treatment. After every laser sessions they will always put on my face their proprietary MEDKARE Facial Treatment Mask for added whitening and anti-aging result.
I enjoyed every laser session while chatting with Dr Chia. He is really friendly and nice. Every session I see great improvement on my skin. Brighter, tighter and more radiant. People joked that my skin look like porcelain. Haha. I have to give Wecomed Clinic the credit to my skin.
Above is me after session, face not swollen or redness.
Special care and After care
I was told to be gentle with my skin, no harsh products and to keep it hydrated and apply sun block. Wecomed Clinic developed a set of products specially for laser special after care.
Wecomed Clinic have their own laboratories in Malaysia and developed all their range of products.
These 3 products are recommend for use after laser treatment special after care. MEDKARE Facial Treatment Mask which is the same one they use for me after each laser session at the clinic, magic water and MEDKARE Plus Vit-C.
MEDKARE Facial Treatment Mask
MEDKARE Facial Treatment Mask is cultivated from salt lake micro alga by special fermentation technology. This is a multi-functional mask mimicking the natural characteristics of such alga that has amazing skin rejuvenation properties to replenish skin moisture and maintain a beautiful complexion.
This mask also feature the highest concentration of active ingredient to support hydration, strengthen skin barrier, increase elasticity, restore optimal cutaneous pH and promote cellular metabolism.
This miracle mask is able to supple the skin a moisture reservoir and protective film that last up to 72 hours. As hydration is very important after laser treatment, I was advise to use this masks consecutively for 3 days after each laser session
MEDKARE Plus Vit-C an oil based vitamin C which is great for anti aging and skin repair to be used only at night.
Contains an array of skin-loving ingredients to boost and soothe the skin. It promotes skin translucency and creates smoother skin texture with brightened skin tone. It also helps to reduce fine lines, enhance skin elasticity and protect the skin from future damage.
I love this because this can be use as a refreshing spray to soothe the skin anytime and anywhere. They have a smaller bottle version as well.
Typically Dr Chia will analyse your skin condition and customise a treatment regime for you. You may require 2 to 6 treatments to see the results. Some deep lesions require more than 6 sessions. The treatment is repeated every 1 to 4 weeks. Therefore, do call in to fix an appointment with Dr Chia as he is usually travelling to his outlets in other countries.
