Skin condition update + my advices before visiting DRx Clinic



Hello peep! My blog has been abandoned for a month since the last post. I've started working part time while looking for a full time (even though I would like to be a couch potato >< )


Working part time does helped to balance out my lifestyle , for example I used to wake up at 11 or 12 pm but now I have to wake up by 10am. I drink a lot of water ( at least 2L a day )! I think this is one of the reasons why my skin is getting better (touch wood touch wood !!)


Having a skin that doesnt need much coverage or no coverage at all is my goal in 2015!! No PS for this photo but foundation and concealer (I truly touched of not photoshoping my photo tears*****)



Previous skin condition: HERE
Current skin condition: minus scars , little little breakout prior PMS. 

Clogged pores are much reduced and no more serious breakout even before PMS !!


Visited DrX Clinic yesterday for consultation and Dual Yellow Combi Laser with Dr.Chiam. Dual Yellow Combi Laser is the laser that I've been doing for my skin since last year and it's my favor! If you were having pimples/acnes/redness problem like me, please please please you should go for it!! (of course you need to consult doctor first okay=) )




Dual Yellow Combi Laser


It's widely considered to be one of the most effective treatments for vascular and pigmentary conditions.


It delivers great control & better outcomes with reduced skin damage & discomfort.


It improves the skin texture, target fine lines & wrinkles & even out the skin tone (scars, acne marks....)


Highly recommend this laser for people who:

- Have pigmentation problem
- Have acne problem like me!!
- Have acne red marks like me!!!
- Experiencing Rosacea/Telangiectasias (basically sensitive skin)
- Want to rejuvenate their skin
- Have unbalanced skin tone like me!!!!





ready for laser!



The procedure will only take 10-30 minutes including face cleansing > numb cream > laser > face cleansing 




No worries........ they will help you to apply a layer or more of numb cream before the laser.
AND honestly, you might experience a little little pain (cause by the heat) at serious acne area (big pimple). Bare with me, the pain is just minus and everything will be fine (imagine you can have flawless skin soon!!). 


say hi to Ultrawoman lolll




You can put on make up right after the laser and sensitive skin might have some redness on skin (not serious at all).

this is the lovely Dr.Chiam who given me a lot of encouragement and told me not to worry as my skin will be fine T.T (seriously it meant a lot to me you know !) She's so fair and doesn't need any make up at all !!!



How much to spend at DrX?

When it comes to total money consumption, I would say, it depends. It depends what doctor suggests you to take; medicine/ laser/ facial/ products etc. 

Their products range around Rm90-300++  and normally can use up to 3 months. My favor is the Max-C which lighten my scars a lottttttttttt and the Tinted Sunscreen. 

For laser treatment, they have various lasers like Dual Yellow Combi, Skin Resurfacing CO2, Fotona Hair Removal Laser........ My favor Dual Yellow costs Rm2000 for 5 times. Normally yu can notice the difference after the 2nd laser.


Wait!! They do accept instalment payment (6 or 12 months with 0% interest) and students can get 10% off for products purchasing. 


Medicine costs around Rm50-100++ for a month. I highly recommend you to take Doxy, Spiro, instead of Roaccutane because I did take Roaccutane years ago and it made my skin really dried out badly =( However, I'm not a professional so do consult doctor for proper guide.



When can I see the result?

Don't expect immediate changes =) Flawless skin is worth to be waiting for !! For me, it took 1 month to see a noticeable result.  Dont feel upset, keep telling yourself flawless skin is coming to you!

Refilled my products yesterday !



See I can put on make up right after the laser, NO PHOTOSHOP AT ALL =)




Good news is, my readers and friends can enjoy 3 times of free consultation by mentioning my name "Melissa". Why not? Believe me, you can have flawless skin like others do!

My skin condition update + journey with DRx Clinic

It has been so long I didn't talk about my skin condition.  Recalling last time when I was still in Wretch.cc and always shared about skin care tips, I miss that moment !!!! My skin was close to perfect (yes friends said my skin was like baby skin). 


Due to my skin got worst after attending college, I rarely wanted to open my heart to talk about "skin care". I just feel so low self-esteem, I believe some of you whom have the same problem will feel me =( 

My skin got even worst when I was in Melbourne. Initially I thought it was due to my food intake so I tried to eat clean.
= No fried no chocolate no spicy = Fruits ( strawberry/ apple/ kiwi ) everyday = 
However there was no much improvement and my skin still breaking out like nobody. 


How worst?
You must have no idea how bad my skin was: big pimples kept popping out, unclogged pores, dry skin, serious scars...........




= LET ME SHOW YOU = 

















No photoshop but with make up + light soft skin mode, you can see how serious my skin condition was, even soft skin mode could not help much T.T



Sorry if I scare you away ......




Started to heel 

My skin only started to turn better when I back to Msia during my Semester break in June. I always envy babe Lumi's skin and she knew I felt bad on my skin too. Eventually, she brought me to DRx Clinic and this was how my journey with DRx begun! 


My first visit to DRx Clinic in June 2014. 

Dr.Chiam suggested me to take medicine to fasten the healing process.  Taking medicine was a nightmare for me as I used to take medicine in few years back but it made my skin terribly dried out x.x 

Surprisingly the medicine that doctor gave me didn't cause any serious reaction =)
FYI, I have been taking the medicine (2 kinds) for 6 months and I tried to reduce the intake since 2 months ago. 



Acnes were being reduced slowly (don't expect immediate recovery if you have serious acne problem), and this photo is with make up. Big pimples were mostly reduced but still seen-able unclogged pimples.   


My skin was still in dry condition when I was in Melbourne as I finished using my products in October. My sensitive skin isn't allowing me to simply try other products as well ><




Current skin condition

By now, my skin is really much better, at least looking softer and smoother, less breaking out! Photos taken below are zero photoshop.

ME highly recommend their Tinted Sunscreen which giving you a dewy korean skin without foundation !!!!!!! Babe Lumi loves it too =)))))))))) 


Texture of Tinted Sunscreen.






Range of products of mine. You will be recommended by different products according to your skin condition. 



The first bottle is almost empty and I'm getting another bottle. This mask is a mask that I can't live without!!!!! Something like clay mask and I usually tap it on pimples overnight ( yes you can do this! )




Selfie in DRx Clinic! With no foundation but Tinted Sunscreen + concealer.



with my babe during our visit to DRx last week!





I'm really appreciate that I met DRx and it changed my social life! I became low self esteem and not dare to date my friends out just because of my bad skin condition. I always love meeting friends but worst skin condition hold my step =( 


Thank you DRx Clinic !!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!! I'm more confident now. I can't wait to share my skin condition update again =) 

Don't hesitate to contact them for appointment and book for consultation, having nice skin is not a dream for me anymore, so do you !!
