Bright & Shine Rejuvenation Therapy



The Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy is a non-ablative, new revolution in skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing. It utilizes   Q-switch Nd:YAG laser, to stimulate the skin’s natural ability to rejuvenate itself by selectively inducing micro-injury in prematurely aged or damaged portions of the dermis and epidermis. The laser creates a 3 dimensional matrix of micro-injury concentrate at specific depths of the existing skin. As the injuries are very tiny and surrounding tissue remains unaffected. The  treatment stimulates blood circulation to the skin and growth of young, new layer of skin to replace the aged one, allowing you have significant improvement in skin health and return your skin’s natural glow with minimal discomfort and downtime associated with some other laser procedures. The results : a bright, improved, toned and radiant skin. And the improvement continues for months!

This is a safe and non-invasive procedure which is often referred to as a “lunch hour laser face lift.” This is now the new benchmark in non-ablative laser skin treatments.

How will my skin look after Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy :- Fotona  laser treatment?

Initially you may notice a slight redness, however this settles very quickly and most people can return to normal activities straight away. The treatment creates a thermal response but there is no breaking of the skin and therefore there is no downtime associated with treatment. Often, clients may choose to have treatment during their lunch breaks. After the treatment, our therapists ensure that that corrective mineral make-up is applied so that no one at the office will even notice!

As the healing process takes place, the improvement in your skin is gradual and continuous, showing noticeable improvement over time.

How many treatments will I require?

How many treatments required really depend on the existing condition of skin and how much improvement is desired. This, of course differs from people to people. Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy can be performed as a one-off treatment for a quick pick-me-up or it can be performed in a course for targeted results. Often Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy is combined with other laser modalities (fractional, dual yellow laser, acne) to treat a wider range of conditions.

Do I need to do anything to my skin before the therapy?

With any skin rejuvenation you will be required to prepare your skin at home. This is to ensure that you achieve the best results with the laser penetrating evenly and without complications. You wouldn’t run a marathon without training first and the same applies to your skin. The preparation is simple :- No excessive sun exposure for at least two weeks before the laser treatment is required.

Correct preparation allows us to predict how your skin will respond to treatment, decreasing risks and complications.

What is the first step and how do I know what treatment is correct for me?

The first step with this therapy is for one of our clinicians to assess your skin’s suitability for the treatment. Not all skin conditions and skin types are suitable or there may be other treatment that is more suited to your concerns. At Anna Hoo Clinic, all of our clients who want any form of skin rejuvenation will receive a thorough consultation where concerns, expectations and the risks and benefits are discussed. Treatment is individualized and every effort is put in to accurately determine what treatment is right for YOU.

Will the therapy hurt?

No, with Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy, you will feel a sensation of heat accumulation in the skin. Some areas may be more sensitive than others as the skin may be more sensitive or the treatment is more intense in that area. Clients often find the forehead to be slightly more sensitive as it is a bonier area. You will have no pain or discomfort post treatment.

Do I need to do anything special post treatment?

You will be advised on a topical home-care regime. It is extremely important to care for your skin post treatment as it may be more sensitive initially after Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy. You will be provided with a post-care information and it is important to follow these instructions to ensure that the skin is well cared for and protected at all times. General guidelines initially are to avoid any direct sun exposure, to apply only prescribed topical home care, to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to ensure the skin remains clean and protected at all times.

How much does Bright and Shine laser rejuvenation cost?

Standard Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy ranges from *RM 700 to RM 920 which includes post treatment care regime. Clients who opt for multiple treatments or combined therapy will be given discounts. 

Why would you choose to do Bright and Shine Laser Rejuvenation over other treatments?

Bright and Shines laser rejuvenation is a great treatment for clients who want results with no downtime. This is a lighter treatment option and therefore is suitable for younger clients with mild to moderate skin damage but less appropriate for those requiring intensified treatments.

Often Bright and Shine Rejuvenation Therapy is used in combination with other treatment to achieve better results in those requiring more intensified treatment.

Again, it really is about treating the individual, so what’s right for your mum, best friend or sister might not be right for you. Our philosophy is to treat the individual – your skin rejuvenation treatment plan will be unique to you and we are able to combine many different modalities into each treatment session to maximise your results.

Why should I have my skin rejuvenation with Anna Hoo Clinic?

We are able to offer the most advanced, cutting-edge technology for skin rejuvenation. Having a wide range of lasers to choose from enable us to select the most suitable laser treatment for you. All of our staff have attended laser safety training courses and are highly skilled and knowledgeable in skin rejuvenation procedures. Lastly, all treatments at Anna Hoo Clinic are performed by highly trained staff and overseen by Dr. Anna Hoo.

Choosing the right sunscreen for your skin


How does sun’s ray actually damage our skin?

Sun produces 3 types of ultraviolet (UV) rays:

·         UVA (320 – 400nm wave length)
·         UVB (290 – 320nm wave length)
·         UVC (200 – 290nm wave length)

UVA
Penetrates deeper into the skin
Major contributor to skin damage, which leads to aging

UVB
Penetrates outer layer of the skin
Major contributor to sunburn

UVC
Almost completely absorbed by ozone layer
Does not affect the skin

What does SPF means?


SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and refers to the theoretical amount of time you can stay in the sun without getting sunburned. For example, an SPF of 30 would allow you to stay in the sun 30 times longer than you could without sunscreen protection.

SPF
Product category
2 – 15
Minimal sun protection product
15 – 30
Moderate sun protection product
>30
High sun protection product
30 - 100
Limited gain. No extra sun protection.

What are the differences between physical sunscreen and chemical sunscreen?
Basically sunscreen that provides board spectrum UVA protection can be divided into 2 types: physical sunscreen and chemical sunscreen.

Physical sunscreen
Chemical sunscreen
Protect the skin by deflecting the sun’s rays.
Protect the skin by absorbing the sun’s rays & transform it to harmless long wave radiation.
Physical agents:
Zinc oxide paste
Micronized zinc oxide
Titanium dioxide
Absorber agents:
Avobenzone(Parsol 1789)
Amino benzoic acid
Ecamsule(Mexoryl)
Thick & opaque.
Colourless & odourless.
Should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure.
Should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure.
Comedogenicity: Titanium dioxide can be problematic for some people.
Comedogenicity: More irritation, some cause contact dermatitis.
Best to avoid those sunscreen that has PABA 5% as their ingredient.


A broad spectrum UVB sunscreen must have below mentioned ingredients:
-Salicylates (Octisalate, Homosalate)
-Cinnamates (Octyl methoxycinnamate)



FDA proposed a regulation on sunscreens on Dec 17, 2012, which stated that:

- Manufacturers cannot identify their products as “sunblocks”.

- Manufacturers cannot make claims that sunscreens are “waterproof” or “sweatproof”.

- Manufacturers cannot claim protection immediately on application (for example, “instant protection”) or protection for more than two hours.

- Sunscreen products that are not broad spectrum or that are broad spectrum with SPF values from 2 to 14 will be labeled with a warning that reads: “Skin Cancer/Skin Aging Alert:  Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. This product has been shown only to help prevent sunburn, not skin cancer or early skin aging.” 

- Water resistance claims on the product's front label must state how much time a user can expect to get the declared SPF level of protection while swimming or sweating, based on standard testing. Only two time durations will be permitted on labels: 40 minutes or 80 minutes.

There are many types of dermal filler in the aesthetic market. What are the characteristics of a dermal filler if we want to have a treatment of dermal filler?
  • Safety

The reasons we prefer HA are:
  • Bio compatible: HA is naturally occurring polysaccharides found in extracellular matrix. Its chemical structure is uniform thoughout nature.
  • Non-allergenic: no need skin testing prior to treatment
  • Reversible: Hyaluronidase is available to break down and hydrolyze HA
  • Minimal Pain: Most of the HA filler product are added pain killer solution
  • Result/Outcome: Stable, reproducible, reversible, biodegradable, longer duration of effect (Proven clinical study: specific product can stay up to 24 months)
  • Convenience to doctor: easy to store, easy to prepare, easy to inject
If you want to do filler, there are a few reminders:
  • Safety always come first
    • Health is always the priority, do not ruin your life just because want to be more beauty
  • Choose safe/ Good products
    • Registered products
    • Products with evidence of research and study proven safety and efficacy 
  • Choose Safe/ Good Injector
    • experienced Injector, trained medical personel
  • Choose safe/ Good Environment
    • Get your treatment done in clinic, not hotel, or other places, this can reduce the risk of getting infection, and if incident happen, clinic will have facilities and equipment to manage complications, this can save your life

肉毒杆菌素的市场品牌


医学美容的市场逐渐倾向成熟的阶段,不再有任何一品牌独大的市场产品操纵,肉毒杆菌素的品牌如是,玻尿酸填充液的品牌也如是。

看看现今市场上的肉毒杆菌素品牌有哪一些呢?
Medscape的医学资料库,通过FDA验证的有以下这些品牌:
美国Allergan的Botox,算是历史悠久,家喻户晓的大品牌。
来自法国的Dysport。
德国Merz的Xeomin。
欧洲的Mybloc

当然市场上还有一些来自韩国,中国的肉毒杆菌素品牌,如BTA-X, Neuronox等等,不过它们就没有经过美国FDA的安全验证,通常只有自己产方国家的安全验证。

如果有兴趣想要了解更多关于品牌的资料,可以看看这里:
http://www.skintherapyletter.com/2008/13.6/1.html

http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/325451-overview#showall

肉毒杆菌素有7种类型,A,B,C,D,E,F,G。
对人类产生作用的只有A,B,E和F。
C,D则对动物有产生作用。

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin都是A型的肉毒杆菌素,Myobloc则是B型。

Botox在1989年开始已经使用在医学的特定疾病。Myobloc在2000年,Dysport在2009年,Xeomin在2010年。
拥有最久历史,和最久医学案例追踪的是Botox,超过25年了。副作用,后遗症,不良反应等等,都已经有长时限的研究与检验。

在我国,目前为止,在卫生部有正式注册的是Botox, Dysport这两个品牌,不过市场上,有很多鱼目混珠,五花八门的各种各样的品牌。若您对肉毒杆菌素的疗程有兴趣,想要除皱,瘦脸或其它的疗程,请选择安全的产品,安全的品牌,以保护自己的安全,以及健康。若想了解更多,请询问您的医生咯!




假货充斥的市场,自己请多小心


有一位同行在过去的Beauty Expo里发现了一些不该出现的产品与机器,如消脂机器与玻尿酸填充液等等。这些都是属于医药层次的医疗用品,照理不可以在大众市场上随意售卖,不过却出现然后已经有人购买。

令人担心的是,这些是不是正规,安全的产品?

我的诊所里头也有相同品牌的玻尿酸填充液,而我们如果想要购买,我们还得在那医药公司开一个户口,而且必须附上我们诊所的卫生部许可证,以及医生的执业证明,才可以以不便宜的价格购买这些玻尿酸产品。特意提起这不便宜的价格,因为在那一个展览厅里,相关产品的售价是原价的三分之一,甚至四分之一,或更低。

有医生通知了相关产品的正规售货员,她立刻去调查,乔装购买了一些相关产品,送回总部检验。而昨天,检验结果显示那里售卖的是“假货”,中国进口的假货。而他们也做出了书面上的文告,通知医生们,不要冒着病人们健康的危险,要杜绝假货。
使用不安全的产品会有什么问题呢?

为什么会有人宁愿铤而走险的尝试使用这些所谓的“便宜货”呢?

若不是正规的原装货,对于该产品的成分,质量,运送管理,效果等都会是一个大疑问。曾有一些所谓的水货,化验发现竟然有一些禁药成分,和现在全世界都在拒绝使用的Silicone成分。这些都是一些不幸运的病人,惨痛的后遗症,证明会带来严重的后遗症。如果使用该产品,没有任何效果,最多只是一些金钱上的浪费与损失;可是若遇上有禁药成分的产品,打针打进皮肤底下,唯一的解决方案是手术移除,要变美反而变丑,和经历一些惨痛的时限。

诊所里也有一些病人们,不知从何管道买到玻尿酸填充液,HA Filler,携带而要求我们帮忙注射,以为花费一些注射费用,可以省下差价,而得到所谓的节省。
不过这个是一个危险的要求。
很少有医生愿意接受这样的要求。因为我们不确定该产品是不是正规和安全的产品。若我们冒失的使用了,若发生副作用和后遗症,该怪罪于谁?显然的,是动手打针的那一位。为什么不用安全的产品呢?
我们时常都会把病人的健康与安全放在第一位。所以,我们会使用正规与安全的产品,安全的技术和提供适当的环境,来进行疗程治疗。
不过,很多时候贪小便宜是劣根性。就算要节省,也应该节省在适当的地方,而不是一些奇怪的小聪明,在医生眼里看来就像是把自己的健康乱乱来搞做,后果有时不是我们所能够承担与接受的。


两百次的手术,最后期望的,是回到没有动过手术之前
