31 July 2010


I was invited by HealthTrends - a Medical, Aesthetics and Wellness group to review the premium Mosaic eCO2 Fractional laser at HealthTrends Wellness Clinic located in the heart of Orchard Road at Ngee Ann City.

Upon arrival at HealthTrends, Kathy the clinical assistant greeted me with a friendly smile and served me a cup of hot tea before handing me a questionaire to fill up on my health, lifestyle habits and skin care concerns.

Next, i was advised to cleanse my face with the mild cleanser provided so that the Doctor could see my skin condition clearly during the skin consultation that follows.

Living in hot and humid Sunny Singapore, I had always been concerned about acne scars, pore sizes, sun spots, wrinkles and uneven skin texture. 

As it was my first time trying out an intensive laser i was concerned about the redness i would experience, downtime, pain and effectiveness.
Dr Ram is an experienced Doctor who specialize in aesthetic medicine and includes minimally invasive facial rejuvenation – treatment of pigments, pores and acne scar remodeling and resurfacing, laser treatments, Botox® and dermal fillers. He was very professional and explained in depth about HealthTrends Signature Treatment - MOSIAC eCO2 FRACTIONAL LASER

Avoid the sun and use of photo-senstitive agents like Triluma and Retin-A Products for at least a week after treatment and oral isotretinoin medication for 3 months.
As the skin on our forehead is very thin, its best to avoid intensive laser treatments. Dr Ram commented that my acne scars were not that significant and when he work on my cheeks, nose and chin areas using eCO2 laser, it will result in smoother, fairer and radiant skin with smaller pores. Absolutely BRILLIANT !
Fractional Laser Before Treatment

After the skin consultation, Rochelle the clinical nurse ushered me to a private room before applying numbing cream evenly on my face for 15mins. She applied a second layer of numbing cream to ensure that my face will be numb so that i would feel less discomfort during the laser treatment. After about 35 minutes, i had to wash off the numbing cream. Upon contact with water, i felt a stinging sensation on my skin hence i wiped off the numbing cream with facial tissue before using the mild cleanser to cleanse my face thoroughly as the laser treatment can only be done on absolutely clean skin. The other discomfort was my whole mouth felt very numb.

I was ushered to the eCO2 laser treatment room. Rochelle adjusted the bed and wrapped a fleece blanket to keep me warm. Dr Ram noticed my cheeks were slightly red and advised that as a precaution and it was my first time trying eCO2 laser, he would use low intensity laser pulses to treat my face. I have to wear a special goggles to protect my eyes from the bright laser beams. After the laser treatment, Rochelle applied an antiseptic cream on my face. Dr Ram explained that after the treatment, all pores are opened so the application of an antiseptic cream will act as a barrier to prevent bacteria on my skin.

I was kind of afraid that it would be very painful but it wasn’t at all ! It felt like a very light pinch each time the laser pulses were dispersed and after the treatment, my cheeks were slightly red. There was almost no down time after my eCO2 laser, only slight redness on my cheeks. On the 2nd day, some very fine tiny brown spots appeared on the areas that were lasered – coral brown cheeks akin to post-beach holiday look. I could see the whiteheads on my nose and cheeks being pushed naturally from the inside of my skin to the outside from Day 3 ! Natural exfoliation !
