Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Want perfect skin?
Girls, if you do, read this.
this is based on my very own experience.

For those who know me in person, I'm sure most of you know that I've been suffering from acne vulgaris when I was 16. The acne went away as I was prescribed by my skin doctor a medicine called Isotretinoin (ISO). It helps to control the growth and outburst of acne and pimples. I stopped after 6 months of prescription as I saw improvement.

My skin was acne-free, but then I suffered from post-acne; SCARS.
I tried so many things ever since the acne went away - may it be creams, facials or even good skin care products that could cost up to thousands per set. Nothing worked. It only work to diminish minor scaring (e.g - blackened scars) Then it hit me, I was suffering from a serious type of scaring; it was boxcar scars and rolling scars (click here for photos, hold down the ctrl key as you click)

Last week, I went through a treatment called Fractional CO2. Here are some before afters of other patients.

(via realself.com)

Okay. maybe you think photos lie sometimes, but let me tell you, this procedure works like wonders. Fractional CO2 Laser resurfacing achieving reduction of acne scarring, wrinkles, pore sizes after one treatment. I, myself is amazed at what it did to my skin. I tried IPL, which is a lighter type of laser procedure but it did not help much as I had 'holes' on my skin. I was literally having a moon-surfaced skin on my cheeks.


Anyhow, this was how my skin looked like before, about a year ago when I started getting IPL done. IPL has less down time and clears off the brown and unwanted scarring dots on your face. It helps to tighten up pores and lighten up the skin as well. :)

Last week, I had CO2 done.
It was painful, I have to honestly tell you.
Thank goodness my doctor has this new numbing cream for the procedure which helped to bring down the pain when the laser was done. The higher the laser beam, the better the outcome. So if you could just bear through the pain, it'll surprise you! For the past 3 days, my face was swollen and was very red. I couldn't step out from the house as I will freak everybody out lol.
Then my bf bought me a flu mask from Guardian and I could go out normally now (with the mask, looking like I'm having a flu).

My skin is still peeling, but it's almost gone. There are still a little red spots on the sides of my face but my scars ARE 85% GONE! the moon-surfaced scars,yes, GONE!

This was how I looked like when my skin started to peel off ;p


nowwww, TAAA-DAAAA!


i still have 2 more sessions to go for CO2. My skin has even out so much, thanks to my skin doctor. I wish you girls out there the same. Acne and pimple scars are the hardest to cure. So please, stop buying products that cost a bunch before you get a consult from your own skin doctor.


do leave me a message or email me directly if you're interested with this procedure or if you have any questions. i'll be more willing to help :)

7aste New York at 32 Mansion, Penang

Soooo there I was.
7aste New York at 32 Mansion, Penang on the 10th of December 2010.
Party started at 7 or 8, but I was there at 12ish (after work *sobs*)
It was a big relief for me because when I reached, the party was still going on!
Lin Chong and Vivien got us some VIP passes so we where given a bottle of liquor! woots.

As I walk in the entrance, I was greeted by so many pretty girls who were assigned to their jobs to attend to us and to register us in. They had this cute uniform on, which looked a little bit like the one Britney wore for her Toxic Mtv

Britney




with Sharon, Lin Chong, Chong Wei.
I enjoyed the music this time, it's more to R&B compared to the previous 7astes events whereby Trance and House music were played. It's finally my cuppa tea XD

Petronas CubPrix 2010, Padang Kota Lama, Penang

i'm back! back back back!
couldn't describe how tiring it was.. i never would wanna travel alone, in one day anymore.
if there's a choice :\
i slept in the taxi, slept in the plane, slept in the car on the way home from the airport lol.

So here are some pictures from Petronas CubPrix 2010 event last Sunday.
Was there as a Yamaha Gridgirl for Petronas. It was not as hot as we all thought it would've been, but it was tiring indeed. Had to get up at like 530am, and be on standby at 7am. crazy!

Plastic Obsession

Let's talk about reality for one second.

How many of you here are against plastic surgery & how many of you here is actually okay towards this? Some might say, going under the knife is against all rules of nature, but on the other hand people are paying their doctors hundreds and maybe hundreds of thousands to look just as good as the people they see on magazines and television. From my point of view, plastic surgery is something that you have to really consider. Not everyone can look like barbie you know. We've got to be realistic. If you're comfortable with how you look (then, shrug off what people say to you). If not then, decide for your ownself; see what's good for you.

Take Megan Fox, yeah. Her. The hubba-hubba-she's-so-hot-that's-why-i-watch-transformers actress? She's flawless. She pulls off sexy without even trying. So jealous. So, so jealous wei~! Nevertheless, she's hot but she did some improvisation on her looks to take it to the next level.

Botox seem to be the most common and popular thing these days; no matter how old you are. They're injected not because of the frown line, but to make the skin look firmer and tighter. And more radiant too :)

I'm not trying to criticize here, but I think Megan wants to be the next Angelina Jolie. Click here and you'll see what I mean (click)


Oohhhh oooh! Anyone of you here watch The Hills on MTV? This 23 year old face of The Hills, Heidi Montag has this crazy obsession about plastic surgery. Not to say that she's overdone anything, but she changed almost every single thing about herself :-\ She's done over 10 procedures and now she's thinking of a boooobjob. jeez!

Happy 22nd Birthday to the most special person in my life.

It was the 3rd of December 2010.
Beautiful, beautiful day :)



Took Tannie to one of the nicest place in Penang to have dinner; QEII. The food came in huge portions, we couldn't finish the whole dish! Ordered mushroom soup, beef lasagne and baked salmon. *burps* Right after, we went to Monkey Bar, Upper Penang Road to meet up with some close friends and not to mention, my sister.



imin & sam


Guess what I got him as a birthday present?
Took me quite a while to look for the suitable one.
The suitable present that gave an "ooooh" when I look at it.



I hope you'll like this :) Seriously.
I'll have to live only on white bread for two months now.
