It is rather obvious that my face was a aftermath of an acne outbreak during my puberty stage and it remained a warzone throughout my polytechnic days. Just imagine how a ruptured minefield would be like.
Unlike girls/ladies who could cake their face with powder and makeup without getting judged, male victims like me could only let-it-be or occasionally apply a teeny weeny amount of BB cream. I guess with Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment available, we guys need not worry about not able to revive back our youthful skin we once had.
After a cup of warm tea and a consultation with Dr Ho who explained to me about Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment which I was obviously oblivious to. It is a safe and non-invasive treatment in which Radio Frequency (RF) technology is used to generate heat to initiate skin change, rebuilding collagen and fibroblast stimulation.
3 to 4 treatments are required for best results.
Below are some things Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment could achieve:
-Decrease visible pores for even skin textures
-Reduce signs of aging for a fresher, more youthful look
-Even out textural irregularities for refined looking skin
-Reduce acne scars for a clearer and healthier complexion
-Diminish deep lines and folds for younger looking skin
-Correct necklace lines to lessen the signs of aging
-Diminish and tighten lax skin for a more firm decollete
Since I have nothing to hide about unglamness and clear and unfiltered pictures are needed in order to justify that Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment really could lighten my acne scars. The whole process of my treatment is also documented step by step, picture by picture. I was hoping my experience might be useful for those who intend to undergo this treatment.
A basic cleanse is done before the treatment to remove any form of makeup.
The intensity of Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment is by percentage (%) and mine was 80%. Dr Ho explained that any higher than that might leave pigmentation on our skin. My pain threshold level is high since I often do facial treatments that involves painful extractions. I even requested not applying numbing cream throughout the whole process which lasted about half an hour. The most painful and tear-triggering part would probably be the area below my eyes and along my jawline closest to the ears.
As you can see from the pictures, after Dr Ho has adjusted the percentage based on my skin condition (which is quite severe), he started working the machine on my face. Minor scarring requires one round while the deeper one required at least 2 to 3 rounds.
After the treatment has ended, I could instantly feel my skin tightened, restricting my facial expressions temporarily. That explains my stony look below with Dr Ho.
Here is a photo with the team at Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics. Thankfully I looked like I had a pretty bad sunburn after the treatment and not anything worst or I would have to cancel my museum visit with my friend that day.
After treatment analysis:
Day 0 (on that day itself) – I rinsed my face with water only, not even daring to use any form of facial
products. Face was quite sensitive and slightly reddish like having mild
sunburn. That night I used a hydration mask.
Day 1 – Dr Ho advice to put sunblock and tons of moisturiser. I stayed at home the entire day to let
my skin rest.
Day 2 – I was contemplating to even step out of my house to go to work. My face was redder than
the previous 2 days. The sections where my face had undergone treatment was pretty
obvious due to the redness. I started using facial foam, only lightly tapping on face.
Accidentally applied Vitamin C which was not supposed to that morning. (No acidic
substance to be applied.) Towards the evening, the area beside my eyebrow had a few lumps
of swelling cysts. They went away after 2 days. At this point, need to bath with cool water
and any attempt to squeeze white heads would cause bleeding.
Day 3 – Skin still reddish and could feel a ‘crust’ forming on certain parts on my face. The crust wasn’t
formed on areas that undergone 2 – 3 layers of treatment.
Day 4 – The textured dots was rather obvious on my face now and the 2 – 3 layers has started to form
crusts as well.
Day 5 – Redness was gone. Skin start to dry up and started shedding like sand. (Below picture)
Day 6 – More shedding occurs on various areas. Started using scrub and gently rub against my face to
remove dead skin.
Day 7 and 8 – Face remained slightly pink
Day 9 – Back to normal with visible improvement on skin.
I went back for a review almost 2 weeks after the treatment. My scars definitely have lightened slightly after a single session of Venus Viva Nano Fractional Treatment. Slight improvement might not seems much but for someone with bad acne scars, even a slightest improvement would mean a great deal to him/her.
(Note that at least 3-4 sessions are minimally needed.)
My friend Shermaine also went for the similar treatment. Feel free to check out her post here
Thank you Janjee from Brand Cellar for the invite and Dr Ho, director of Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics for the treatment!
