How to minimise my enlarged pores?

Acne was my biggest nightmare during my secondary school days. On some days when I woke up, I just do not feel like going to the school with my bad acne on my face (especially when I have them on my nose or above my lips). I felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed about my skin condition. 

When I was asked to join in to take photo, I tend to avoid them. I have trouble looking others in the eye, while others completely avoid all social situations. If you felt the same, you are totally not alone.

Now as I grew older, the acne may be gone but leaving behind on my face are the scars and enlarged pores causes by the acne. Sometime when people commented about my “mo-peng” (Hokkien dialect for having a pockmarked face) face, I will feel so sad.

I have tried many products to treat them but none actually gave a good result in shrinking the pores. I even resort in putting those bb cream on my face to make my skin look smoother but I realised it is not a long term solution to it.

One day, I was introduced to Laser skin rejuvenation treatment at Astique. The Aesthetic Clinic to treat my enlarged pores issues.

What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Stimulating collagen production in our skin texture, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with acne scarring will also notice a marked improvement. The laser can be used to rejuvenate many areas on the body, including the face, hands, neck and chest.

Laser can stimulate collagen production in our skin, and as new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, as the laser light penetrates age spots and other pigmentation, these areas are broken apart and absorbed into the skin. Patients report, and studies have also confirmed that laser skin rejuvenation results in a refreshed appearance and smoother skin.

The Tribeam laser used for skin rejuvenation is one of the safest lasers on the market today, and the procedure has very little risk of complications. Patients of all skin types can be safely treated – including those with tanned skin.

How is the procedure like?
I like it as there is no downtime. There is an invisible laser beam which is directed at my face, heating up the deeper layers of the dermis to stimulate collagen production. The Tribeam laser offers a very comfortable treatment and the sensation can be described as a “tingling” feeling.

How long is the treatment session?
One session usually take approximately 45 minutes as there are other treatments involved along with Tribeam such as Cool touch, Shaplight and microderm/ chemical peel depending on the individual skin type. Some patients will experience mild to moderate redness on your face and don't worry as it is normal. But the redness usually fades within an hour after treatment. For the ladies, you can still put on your makeup immediately and resume their daily activities. For me, I don't use any make up and I still continue to go for my work.

How do I feel about the treatment?
I only experience minimal discomfort and the treatment is safe. Doctor Ng Hong Yi is very professional and experienced.

What are the after-care for such treatment?

Doctor advised me to stay away the sun for 1 to 2 weeks after my laser treatment. Yes, do apply sun block everyday.

Waiting for my treatment

Treatment started and that is the machine Dr Ng used on my face.

After treatment, my skin is slightly red but it is not pain at all.

This was taken on the same day 10 minutes after the treatment. 
I feel my skin looking good and I feel so much confident! I will definitely visit the clinic again for another session to have better result.
