[Review] My Skin Regeneration Treatment at Aesthetic and Hair Clinic Singapore

**Warning: Picture-heavy post!! Haha*

Here's a thank you to all my readers who have been following my Chemical Peeling Journey previously! Ever since the entries were published, I have received several e-mails from a few readers who have shared their acne issues with me as well. It pains me to know of how my young readers have been battling acne since a tender age.

I'm glad my entries benefited some of you who are interested in the treatment too. It has definitely been one of the most rewarding choices I've ever made in going for the Chemical Peeling treatment.
As most of you would have known by now, Dr Tyng Tan was my doctor and she was kind enough to recommend me another treatment that would aid in lightening acne scars, blemishes and flaws on my face.
The treatment is known as MOSAIC Total Skin Regeneration. (Not sure if any of you have heard of it, but now you do!)
I'll explain more about this treatment in specific details at the later part of this entry, so be sure to keep on reading if you are interested!


Given my condition (which varies between different individuals), she has suggested 5 sessions for me (with each session being 1 month apart)
I would be lying if I were to tell you I wasn't feeling nervous about the treatment.
I know this would be something different from Chemical Peeling as it involves the usage of laser, which sounded quite scary to me!

Of course... It helps knowing the fact that Dr Tyng Tan will be handling the procedure.
(Not that I am trying to be a boot-licker here but I have total faith in her!!)

I am going to be on a new journey this time with the Total Skin Regeneration treatment, so do stay tuned to my entries as I'll be posting updates of my condition - a totally honest review with unedited photographs!

Here I am, back again at the clinic!




 And this is one of the rarer chances you may get to see me without make-up on.
(I totally lack confidence in posing for photos without make-up, but for the sake of the treatment which I had to go without.... I'll make the sacrifice!!)




 Here's the lovely Ms Vivian attending to me again!


 Getting ready for the cleansing of face.
(As you can see, I have some dark scars near my chin area. They look more obvious than they are in the pictures!)


LOL. I don't know why I had that expression on my face. Now all of you have seen the most unglam side of me. Ahem.


Ms Vivian gently cleansing my face in progress... ...
(It was so comfortable that I thought I could fall asleep!)


Mmmm... 


Now, this is the interesting part. She applied numbing cream on my face after the cleansing, and I was told that this would numb my face (so that I wouldn't feel that much of any possible pain from the treatment later)
The numbing effect would last for 4-6 hours!

I was feeling anxious and curious as I have never imagined my whole face being numbed before.
I was quite skeptical of the cream initially, but I was proven wrong!



 Here's me after the application of numbing cream. I could feel the numbness and tightness setting in! Was trying my best to smile here.
Gosh, look at those dark eye circles!!!!
(Do note that I have not used any photo filter effects in my photos in this entry. What you see is how the photo was originally taken!)

My right eye was actually a bit swollen on that day, which I didn't know why either. Probably a lack of sleep from the night before :(



I was curious how the numbing cream looked like... So here it is, with permission from Ms Vivian. Haha. It's interesting how powerful the cream is!
Imagine how I could prank an enemy with it while he/she is taking a nap. Just an application around his/her mouth and it shall numb him/her from talking! LOL, just kidding. I am such a kind soul, how in the world would I have an enemy? *inserts angelic look here*


Zen mode. Face getting numb every minute... Tick tock tick tock.

 (I thought my hair looked beautiful until I saw this photo. DAMN.)


Close-up shot of my face. 


Ms Vivian cleaning off the numbing cream... Oh no.. This means that my face is now almost ready for the treatment!



 Soon, I was told to get ready for Dr Tyng Tan to begin the treatment.
While waiting for her to enter the room, I was trying to hard to control those butterflies in my stomach.
Even though I knew what I was in for, but the feeling of being physically there and awaiting to have my face worked on was making me anxious!
Thoughts such as "Will this be painful?" appeared in my mind, even though it was reportedly said to be painless.

Soon, Dr Tyng Tan entered the room with her cheerful smile (I felt comforted already!) and explained to me briefly about the treatment.

"The whole procedure only lasts for about 2 minutes!" she said optimistically.
I relaxed my muscles. The thought of how the effects will benefit my face eventually gave me the courage to brave myself for it.

"So.. Are you ready?"
I nodded.


 Zap, zap, zap zap.
Dr Tyng Tan's hand movement was fast and steady as she controlled the equipment.
"You look like you are frowning," she remarked. "Is it painful?"

(I did not realize I was frowning! Actually, I was feeling more of shocked than pain as the equipment felt prickly on my skin. Personally, it is not really 100% painless - but definitely tolerable. I am one that is afraid of pain, so I believe majority of the humans would not have issues with it! HAHA)



There was one point when the intensity has to be increased and the pain level was slightly higher than the former. It's still within my tolerable limit though. (They felt prickly against my skin)




 Dr Tyng Tan confidently working on my face.


Wow, I love this photo! It looks so professional as though it's from some advertisement! Hahaha.


I love how Dr Tyng Tan is always seen to be smiling in photos.





 Get ready for a photo that may possibly be one of the more glamorous ones ever showcased on my blog.
But being a honest and transparent blogger (*takes pride*), I'll post photos that are true to my experiences.

.
.

Here, a photo of me straight after the treatment. I KNOW I looked like a roasted pig here (and I didn't know I was frowning, really!)


Don't worry, I only looked like a roasted pig for probably only 10 minutes! The swell went down pretty fast.
The after-treatment sensation was actually quite comfortable. I felt like my face has been pricked, but in a "shiok" way. The feeling was indescribable but boy, was I glad that there really was not much pain felt! The numbing cream helped alot, I guess.


 Immediately, I was given a cleansing and had facial session to "cool" my face.


  After cleansing.
See? My face wasn't so red now. :)



The cooling mask!!! It was to be laid on my face for 20 minutes.
Ms Vivian even switched the lights off so I could have a short nap. Awww.



Really shiok leh.


 Dr Tyng Tan giving me some advice =D



OK, sleeping time while the mask as doing its work on my face!




 After the removal of mask, my face was back to almost normal again!! No more redness.!!



Ms Vivian proceeded to apply post-treatment balm and sun-block on my skin.
(I was encouraged not to go under the sun that much after the treatment)



I looked like I had fallen asleep.. Did I??






Yay, done with the treatment! :) I looked better, didn't I?!


As I have promised earlier in my post to explain more about the Total Skin Regeneration treatment, here it is.

Total Skin Regeneration has the ability to deliver substantial improvements while leaving the skin's outer most layer unaffected.

Following a single session, one can notice that the skin will be brighter and re-generated with renewed collagen, and it is reportedly said that the skin will become even tighter and scars will dramatically improve after several more sessions!

Personally, it is a convenient treatment that does not leave a visible wound (other than looking a bit sun burned after the procedure). However, it does not affect daily activities at all and I was told that I can even apply make-up after the treatment!

What types of skin are suitable for the treatment?
-Scars such as acne scar, surgical scars, traumatic scars, burn scars and striae.
-Rejuvenation of Non-Surgical Areas (Neck, chest, and hands ,etc)
-Wrinkles and Skin Laxity
-Sun Damaged skin
-Large pore, rough skin texture
-Pigmented lesions such as Melasma, age spots and dyschromias
-Uneven skin stones


Here's a random photo of me making my next appointment at the clinic - I can't wait for my second session already!
I was given a post-treatment balm (which I have to apply twice daily on my face). The post-treatment balm is recommended to be stored in the fridge and it was sooo cooling when I applied it on my face everytime!




Here's a pic of my face condition on the same day (at night)

A close-up shot of my face. Just some minor red patches here and there.





Pardon the messy kitchen background. LOL

This is Day 2 and I felt that my skin is improving already!




I think it really improved!!
I went to work that following week and one of my colleagues (who did NOT know I underwent the treatment at all) asked me "Did you just do facial?"

WHOA, I felt immensely happy because this meant that the treatment was EFFECTIVE!!
"NO!!" I replied with a smile. "I did skin treatment! Do read my blog to find out more if you are interested what I exactly did."

That's me now:
