back to DRx for.. combi laser!

Sep 18, 2015
So, after trying out DRx's Q-switched laser treatment for 3 sessions, I could see some slight improvement on my pigmentation, which you probably might be able to notice from the pictures I posted in my previous post here. I mentioned that I didn't really like the treatment that much as it leaves my skin a little dry, and it doesn't really help when I pair it with the whitening products from DRx, as most whitening products make our skin dryer, especially doctor brands in my humble opinion.

Being someone who is super sensitive to skin condition changes, I decided to stop their whitening range before my skin condition deteriorates further as I was so worried that it will get back to the IDS time again.

Then, I called DRx to check when will my first doctor, Doctor Yanni be back and to my greatest pleasure, she's back from maternity leave on that very day I called. I booked an appointment with her immediately and the next morning, I was at her room being her first customer of the day, she looked gorgeous as a new mum and she greeted me with brightest smile, I knew, my choice of switching back to her, was absolutely right!

Dr Yanni always says my skin type is very similar to hers, hence she's really able to pinpoint my concerns and gives me the best advice. She agreed with my observation about my dryness problem after the Q-switched laser. And put me right back on the combi laser again. What she said makes perfect sense to me was that, when my skin turns red easily, especially during menstrual period, skin is prone to inflammation, which is one of the root causes of skin aging. So by switching back to combi laser, it will tame the inflammatory skin and help with skin rejuvenation process.

She also agreed with Dr Angela, whom I've been seeing during Doctor Yanni's maternity leave period, that my skin texture is good in general so if I would like to look even younger, Ultherapy could be considered for uplifting effect to treat the saggy skin. I will consider that probably in another 1-2 years time I guess.

I asked her about the importance of standard facial as I've never been doing regular facials. She advised me to consider it if I notice bad clogged pores, white or blackheads, as those facial will help to deep cleanse the skin and prepare it for better absorption of the skin care products. But for the time being, she feels it's not compulsory as she believes I've been religiously taking care of my skin with regular scrubbing and mask-ing.

I left the clinic with a much clearer and supple face after my combi laser treatment. I am not sure what I am up for next but for the time being, I am extremely happy to be back on my combi laser again with Dr Yanni!
