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 / 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.

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.
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.

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.
