Specialists at DermClear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic offer topical treatment to both acne and the ugly scars that they leave behind using the clinic’s own medical grade products that contain active ingredients from the USA, Europe, Korea, and Japan. These products are proven to be safe and highly effective. Topical treatment products come in a wide variety of forms, including lotions, gels, or creams and should be used according to the prescription of a qualified dermatologist. The frequency of application varies, as well as the duration of the treatment, but most products are applied at least once a day over a certain period.
Acne and Scar Treatment (Fractional RF / Microneedle RF)
Fractional Radiofrequency (RF) with Microneedling is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure that clears acne and reduces the appearance of facial scars including burn and acne scars by stimulating the production of collagen in the deeper layer of the skin. A numbing agent is applied to the skin at least 40 minutes before the actual procedure. Then, a cartridge with several micro needles is placed near the skin’s surface, after which the needles are driven deeper, breaking the skin. RF energy is delivered to the dermis through the needles, warming the tissue and activating collagen production. In a few days, the holes close, leaving the skin with improved tone and texture.
Botox Injection (Per Unit)
Botulinum A, or Botox, is a toxin that has been purified for cosmetic or medical purpose. It can smooth the forehead by removing the furrows, decrease the visibility of frown lines and crow’s feet and improve the contour or shape of the face. It can also be used when performing a liquid facelift, in which Botox is paired with dermal fillers to create a “lifting” effect. Botox is also approved for treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and migraine. The entire procedure is performed in the office of a specialist, who then injects the Botox in small doses into the targeted areas. The desired results are noticeable after a couple of days and can last up to eight months.
Individuals who are suffering from skin condition or require aesthetic procedures such as liposuction, facelift, and breast augmentation, are encouraged to consult a licensed dermatologist and plastic surgeon, which you can find at DermClear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. During your first consultation, the specialist will discuss your goals and if you’re suffering from a skin condition, the symptoms that you’re experiencing. A physical exam will also be carried out before making a diagnosis and recommending treatment. The goal of this consultation is to help you find the best solution to your problem and to identify treatments that can best help you realise your aesthetic goals.
DC Renu Acne and Scar Treatment
DermClear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic treats acne and acne scars using DC Renu treatment using chemical peels to remove the topmost layer of the skin, forcing the body to produce new skin that is free from acne and other spots. This treatment also encourages the production of collagen leading to a much smoother and younger-looking skin surface. Before the procedure, a thorough assessment will be performed to identify the best type of chemical peels to use based on the severity of your condition. While mild chemical peels can be applied without anesthetic, deep peels that penetrate several layers of skin require it as it can cause a second-degree burn.
Also referred to as dermal fillers, fillers are cosmetic products that are injected into the cheeks, lips, chin, or forehead to minimise frown lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet, as well as create a more desirable facial shape and contour by adding volume to sunken areas. It requires an outpatient, in-office non-surgical minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves choosing the best dermal fillers (collagen, PLLA, hyaluronic acid, etc.), discussing the desired results, and injecting them into specific areas. The doctor typically massages the areas in between injections to spread the fillers evenly. The patients can immediately return to their activities after the procedure while the full effects can be seen in a matter of days.
Dermatology Follow Up
Follow-up consultation is typically required by dermatologists at DermClear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic to assess and discuss the effectiveness of the treatment that was provided during the previous visit. An evaluation will be performed, and this typically requires conducting a physical assessment as well as running some tests. Depending on the result of the assessment, the patient may be informed that the treatment is a success, or other treatment options may be discussed to achieve the patient’s goal. A follow-up consultation can take 30 to 60 minutes.
Face and Body Treatment: Electro / RF CauteryContact Clinic
Electrocauterisation is a non-surgical procedure in which heat from electric current is applied to the skin to minimise bleeding or remove superficial skin growths such as warts, skin tags, age spots, and oil seeds. During the procedure, the skin is prepped by cleaning and sometimes shaving the targeted site while grounding pads are placed usually on the thighs to minimise the effects of the electric current. A probe is then used to send electric current to the skin to remove harmful or unwanted tissue and achieve the desired results. Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic, which uses radiofrequency (RF) or electricity, offers the service with minimal downtime.
Fractional CO2 Laser (Acne Scar)
Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic provides fractional CO2 laser, a non-invasive “lunch-time” (very quick) procedure of tightening the skin and significantly reducing the appearance of acne scars, liver spots, fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles without any downtime. It resurfaces the skin a site and layer at a time, leaving the surrounding skin tissues intact and speeding up the healing process. When applied to the skin, the laser energy creates very small holes that penetrate into the dermis, forcing the skin to generate collagen and elastin that produces a more vibrant and more tightened skin with flatter and smoother acne scars.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal
Hair in the lower legs may be removed through shaving or waxing, but these procedures are not only time-consuming but also sometimes painful, with results lasting only a few days. Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic therefore suggests light-assisted hair removal technique in which either laser (usually nd:YAG) or IPL (intense pulse light) is used to deliver a beam of light energy onto the skin, which then goes through the hair follicles. The heat it generates eventually destroys the follicles so they don’t produce more hair. The process results to more than 90% of hair reduction with effects lasting at least 4 to 6 weeks.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Treatment
Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure of reducing the effects of photoaging (exposure to UVA and UVB rays) such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots using light-based therapies such as IPL (intense pulse light) and laser. It also decreases the size of the pores and firms the skin. The lunchtime process involves applying IPL or laser, which then penetrates into the deeper layer of the skin (dermis), causing the constriction of blood vessels and stimulation of collagen production. These changes then lead to a smoother, younger-looking facial skin. And since the treatment is non-ablative, it doesn’t cause any physical changes in the epidermis (upper layer of the skin).
Laser for Pigmentaton
While some pigmented lesions react positively to creams, laser or broadband light treatment (BBL) remains to be more effective. During this procedure, a targeted or broad spectrum beam of high-intensity light penetrates the deeper layer of the skin. This is then absorbed by melanin that is causing the pigmentation, destroying melanin and stimulating the production of collagen in the process. A few days after treatment, the lesions on the upper layer of the skin will fall off, and the skin will tighten, leaving a smoother, more vibrant, and younger-looking skin with an even tone. The same treatment may also be used to lighten age spots, freckles, birthmarks, and solar lentigines.
Light Assisted Permanent Hair Removal (Facial Hair)
Unlike other types of hair, facial hair is quite difficult to remove with waxing and shaving, but Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic provides clients with an innovative, non-ablative cosmetic procedure called light-assisted permanent hair removal. It uses targeted light therapy from laser or intense pulse light (IPL) to damage the follicles, where the hairs originate, so they stop producing hair in the next 4 to 6 weeks following the procedure. The treated hairs will appear but can fall off by simply using a loofa. This treatment promises around 90% to 95% hair reduction while remaining hairs are lightened to make them less noticeable.
Light Assisted Permanent Hair Removal (Full Arms)
While arm hairs are completely harmless, they may also be discomforting and unsightly. To remove the hairs virtually permanently, a light-assisted treatment via an IPL (intense pulse light) or laser is performed in which the beam of energy penetrates the hair follicles, destroying the area, preventing future hair growth, and reducing up to 95% of hairs. The procedure can also lighten existing hairs, so they are less visible. Within the next two weeks, the treated hairs appear on the skin, and they may be removed by rubbing loofa especially during a shower. The skin then remains hairless for around six weeks.
Light Assisted Permanent Hair Removal (Full Back)
A sexy back is also a hairless one. While these hairs can be removed by regular waxing in salons, hair reduction is better achieved with a light-assisted permanent hair removal wherein light therapy, which can be IPL or laser, breaks into the follicles and destroys them to avoid creating more hairs. The procedure, which is non-ablative, reduces hair by at least 90% and even lightens existing strands, so they are not very visible. Positive results are guaranteed and are expected to last for at least a month before a few more treatments are performed for a more long-lasting effect.
Light Assisted Permanent Hair Removal (Full Legs)
Hair on the legs may be removed with shaving or waxing, but for a more long-term effect, Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic highly recommends a light-assisted hair removal in which either an advanced intense pulse light (IPL) or laser is used to go through the deeper layer of the skin, destroy the follicles, and prevent future hair growth. The damaged hairs will start falling off two weeks after the procedure while the legs will remain hair free for at least four weeks. Overall, the procedure leads to almost 97% reduction of permanent hair, loss of ingrown hair, and easier maintenance of the legs.
Light Assisted Permanent Hair Removal (Upper Lip)
Removing the hairs on the upper lip is a challenge as it may lead to injuries of the nostrils and lips. With light-assisted hair removal offered by Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic, this can be avoided since the clinic uses either laser or IPL (intense pulse light), which can be modified to target only the intended area. The energy passes through the epidermis to the hair follicles, which are then destroyed to prevent them from producing hair. This quick, simple non-surgical procedure can permanently reduce hair by as much as 95% with the effects lasting for about six weeks.
Liquid FaceliftContact Clinic
Liquid facelift is a new popular alternative to traditional and thread facelift. It doesn’t require any kind of incision but rather relies on dermal fillers and Botox to shape or contour the face, lift sagging skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, minimise eye bags, add more volume into sunken areas, and make fuller lips. Liquid facelift is a simple straightforward, minimally invasive procedure with no need of any anaesthesia. The procedure uses dermal fillers such as Restylane and Botox, which are injected into the targeted areas. There is no downtime, and the desirable results can last up to a year.
Tattoo RemovalContact Clinic
Since tattoos are meant to be permanent, a complete removal may be impossible, but their visibility can be significantly reduced, depending on the skin condition, tattoo quality and size, and location of the tattoo. Dermclear Aesthetic and Laser Clinic helps remove tattoos using nd:YAG laser called Q-switched. Tattoos made with red, black, and blue ink positively respond to this treatment. During the procedure, a calibrated laser light penetrates into the tattoo, with the energy absorbed by the pigments. The energy then breaks the pigments down into very small particles, which are then absorbed by the body.
Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic offers a revolutionary method of lifting mildly sagging skin in the neck, jawline, and cheeks without the long downtime and discomfort associated with a traditional facelift. Typically performed under local anaesthesia and taking only about an hour or two, thread lift involves using absorbable threads that are inserted into the skin tissues through incisions made in the targeted areas. Once introduced, the threads anchor themselves onto the tissues so when they are pulled. The skin is also then lifted, giving the patient an instant younger look. The ends of the threads are then knotted and buried underneath the skin leaving an almost scarless appearance.
Ultrasound Assisted Tumescent LiposuctionContact Clinic
Also known as Ultrasound-Assisted Lipoplasty, Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL) is an in-office, invasive cosmetic surgical procedure of removing stubborn fat and tightening loose skin using one of the most advanced liposuction techniques. After a local numbing agent and a general anaesthesia are administered, a tumescent fluid is introduced to the target area and ultrasound energy is delivered either above the skin via an emitter or underneath and much closer to the fatty tissue with an ultrasound cannula. The energy destroys and liquefies the fat cells through a very rapid vibration, so they are much easier to suction later on. UAL delivers more long-term results and very minimal downtime.
Weight Loss ConsultationContact Clinic
Dermclear Aesthetic and Laser Clinic offers a weight reduction and body sculpting program to enhance the contours of the body and boost self-image and confidence as naturally as possible. The treatment plan includes a non-surgical procedure called radio frequency (RF) to deliver heat to the deeper layers of the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulites, shaping the flabby upper arms, tightening the skin, and flattening the abdomen (or love handles) without damaging the upper layer of the skin. RF delivers very safe, spot-on results, and along with oral supplements, both can be customised to the age, condition, and desired results of the client.
