Pore Reduction Treatment

Chemical Peels

skin14

Chemical peels is probably one of the most commonest and conventional skin treatments performed in aesthetic clinics. Since its debut into the aesthetic scene more than 15 years ago, it still remains as one of the most practical, simple and no-frills treatment.

It involves topical application of a chemical solution to improve and smoothen the texture of the skin by removing the outer dead skin. Commonly used acids, either on its own or as a combination, include: Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, and Phenol & TCA.  These have an added effect in reducing the skin pores and helps also to remove the debris that blocked such pores. It is an excellent aesthetic treatment for the weekend, or if you want to look good for an important event as it visibly brightens and smoothens the skin without any down-time or recovery. The treatment is virtually painless. It is highly recommended that each peel is followed by a deep hydrating mask, as one of the commonest effects of the peel is skin dryness post treatment.
In M&W, our signature peels and hydrating masks are customised to suit the needs of both men and women each curtailed to the skin needs that are unique to different gender, and also to the different skin types and colours. We believe that our customised care has brought around the patient experience that is memorable gentle and yet effective.

Aquaglossy Treatment

Aquaglossy Treatment / 水光针 (韩国,台湾)

Fillers when administered to the skin increases the content of hyaluronic acid (another component of the skin beside collagen)- with that, the hydration level of the skin rises, the skin is more hydrated and as a result the skin pores reduces further. Dysport (a form of botulinium like botox) also have a pore reduction effect as it further inactivates the sebaceous glands.

As the depth of aquaglossy treatment can be adjusted, it allows treatment of both shallow and deep skin pores this offers an alternative for the treatment of deep skin pores which traditionally can only be treated with fractional lasers. It offers excellent recovery compared to fractional lasers (see below) which makes it a powerful alternative treatment. Most patients also find it less painful compared to fractional lasers.

Studies have shown that when botulinium (Botox, dysport) and fillers are administered to the skin:
1) Skin pores are reduced
2) Skin texture improves and is smoother, shinier.
3) Acne scars get less obvious, flatter
4) Hydration of the skin improves noticeably
5) Reduces dark eye circles and wrinkles *

(*Published in the Archives of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, “Effects of Injection Depth and Volume of Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid in Human Dermis on Skin Texture, Hydration, and Thickness ” Dr Kim came to this conclusion :
Fillers injected into the skin not only improved the hydration of the skin but also the skin texture distinctly.)

It is for these reasons, aquaglossy treatments has become one of the key treatments in M & W to consider for skin pore reduction. Unfortunately MOH do not allow the display of before after pictures and we are unable to share the results of this treatments publicly.

水光针-让肌肤变得水嫩,晶莹剔透的秘诀

都市人随着年龄的增加, 长时间的工作,压力的原因,让我们原本娇嫩的面部肌肤会逐渐失去珍贵的胶原蛋白,脂肪,透明质酸和水分。这些会加速肌肤老化。我们的皮肤会变得干燥,松弛,粗糙和出现皱纹。

涂抹保湿品或敷面膜等补水产品, 都只能作用在皮肤表层。而水光注射的出现则完美的解决了这个问题。水光针可以进行深层次的补水,从根本上解决皮肤缺水问题。这也是水光注射之所以备受青睐的原因。

水光治疗的主要功效在于使肌肤保持‘弹力、紧致、水嫩’。从肌肤细胞及角质层含水量分配的医学研究中得知,只有让皮肤深层锁住水份才能起到长久补水保湿的目的,而水光注射便是利用组合细针和负压的原理,通过仪器将以透明质酸为主的保湿成份注入皮肤深层,提升皮肤水份保持能力,最终呈现出水润透亮并富有弹性的外在肌肤表现。

随着临床经验和患者需求的演进,水光注射治疗由之前以透明质酸为主,逐渐地通过透明质酸加上其他成分,进而使皮肤有更多的改善效果。较常见的搭配方式有肉毒素、维他命C、干细胞以及美白产品等,对于皮肤补水保湿、提升,美白、改善肤色暗沉,抚平细纹、暗疮,保持肌肤弹性等功效明显,治疗后全脸充满紧实水嫩感。

水光针为注射美容,属于非手术,注射层次为较浅的真皮层,风险也相对较小,除了注射后会出现红斑、轻微浮肿和淤青(一两天就会消失)等反应外,基本没有其他不适。无论是男女老少,每一个人都可以从这治疗受益。如果你想预防老化过程或逆转老化迹象,水光针就是最适合的治疗。想要从根本上解决皮肤缺水,干燥及老化问题,进行深层次的补水和胶原蛋白,水光针是非常理想的选择。

水光针的功效:

  1. 充分补水,使皮肤水润柔嫩、有光泽,显得更年轻
  2. 有效的去除脸部、颈部与手部细纹干纹
  3. 美白嫩肤与改善暗沉肤色
  4. 收缩毛孔,紧致皮肤,增加皮肤弹力
  5. 淡化色斑,改善痘痕
  6. 增强皮肤保湿能力,改善皮肤炎症

 

水光针是至今最有效的抗衰老治疗。水光针治疗既有效,又可以维持长久,结合其他治疗如激光治疗和皮肤填充剂,你根本就不必担心皮肤衰老!  

Fractional Co2 Treatments

Fractional CO2 Lasers

(Treating DEEP SKIN PORES with reduced risks of recovery and complications)

Deep skin pores, particularly at the nose, are notoriously difficult to treat with conventional treatments such as chemical peels or toning lasers.

skin16

The Fractional Technology “fractionates” or “splits up” the laser into finer rays, create “zones of lasered skin” with unaffected skin shown above. It allows deeper penetration of the skin without causing too much damage to the surrounding skin. This subsequently causes collagen remodelling particularly around the deep pores which results in their shrinkage. There is also a significant lower risk of hyperpigmentation compared to full ablative treatments.

The number of treatments needed will depend on the severity and depth of the skin pores, ranging from 3-5 treatments for shallower skin pores to 8-10 for more severe, deeper ones.

Why Deep Fractional eCO2 Laser Treatment for deep skin pores?

  1. It offers effective results¹, and treats deep skin pores that chemical peels, non-ablative lasers such as medlite cannot effectively treat.
  2. Adjustable to different depths with different energy settings
  3. Offers better recovery and less risks as compared to full ablative lasers²

In M&W, we believe combination treatments such as combining peels, Radiance laser toning and aquaglossy treatments, help to more comprehensively address skin pore issues, and have a more superior result than individual treatments alone.

As cited in aesthetic clinic journals, combination aesthetic treatments do lead to better aesthetic results and more patients’ satisfaction**. Our combination treatments are designed with that and a better outcome in mind.
