EPW Laser + Medical Aesthetics Clinic, on Level 17 of Tong Building. Upon arrival at the clinic, I was greeted by a huge seating area at the reception with EPW’s line of skincare products neatly arranged on its shelf. I was then attended by one of their attentive Patient Care Counsellors for my registration.
The spotlight is on a laser treatment that has been creating happy waves amongst their patients. The clinic’s “Let There Be Light” treatment is most popular with patients for being virtually PAINLESS & NO DOWNTIME!!
So how does the Dual Yellow Light Laser work?
As its name suggests, it's the only laser to emit two lights – a yellow light for vascular problems, rosacea, melasma, skin rejuvenation & brightening, & a green light to treat #pigmentation. With a wavelength of 578nm, the yellow light matches the peak absorption of haemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carry oxygen. This allows it to coagulate vessels & treat blood vessel related problems without damaging surrounding skin. The green light on the other hand has a wavelength of 511nm, ideally absorbed by melanin contained within melanocytes to reduce pigmentation without collateral damage.
My Treatment - Dual Yellow Light Laser (Copper Bromide)
Following that, ultrasound gel was applied on my face. #DualYellowLight Laser equipment was used, first with a bigger tip which helped to even out the skin tone & lighten the dark circles. Dr Wong used 10% green (Y10G) to work on the superficial pigmentation. The doctor then used a smaller tip to target pigmented dots.
- Derma-A Forte Retinol Cream @ SGD 152 – helps regulate skin turnover. With each use, fine lines & wrinkles start to fade & complexion becomes smoother & radiant.
- DermaClear Ultra Cream @ SGD 138 – An advanced skin brightening formula that contains Alpha-Arbutin, Vitamin C & botanical extracts to brighten & clarify the skin & prevent oxidative damage. Regular use promotes a luminous, even-toned complexion.
- Ultra-high Protection Sunscreen SPF 30 @ SGD 75 - Comes in shades of Ivory, Almond, Natural & Cashmere, this broad spectrum UV protector is designed for sensitive skin & does not contain parabens or chemical sun filters. In addition, it contains licorice extract which has anti-inflammatory properties.
From the moment I stepped into the clinic right until I left the place, I was met with EPW’s dedicated team of friendly & cheerful staff. Those who had attended to me were attentive, polite & knowledgeable.
So, was the treatment really PAINLESS & NO DOWNTIME as claimed? Yes, indeed! I experienced no pain at all during the Dual Yellow Light Laser treatment! I’ve extremely low-threshold of pain & I was really amazed the entire session breezed through comfortably; the only laser treatment I’ve experienced to date with NO PAIN!! Ok, ok, I've to admit the oil bump extraction was painful, but that was it!
Dr EP Wong took time to explain the steps while he was running the laser on me, & he was reassuring & extremely gentle throughout the procedure. Though serious & strict most of the time, Dr Wong does have his moments of humour at times. And when he does that, he can be pretty charming! No wonder he has a strong following of aficionados from all over the world especially the Indonesian Tai-tais.
In treating pigmentation using the Dual Yellow Light Laser, the price is from SGD 1,500 per session. A minimum of 3 sessions are needed to see results. It’s best to consult with the doctor to see if you require a Dual Yellow Light laser procedure. Dr Wong would need to examine your skin condition, skin type, & determine what sort of treatment would suit your skin. It'll be good to see the doctor to share your concerns, needs & expectations. However, depending on your skin condition, Dr Wong is able to best advise you on how many treatments you would need & also customise a program to suit your needs. Some patients may require more treatments than others.
Let There Be Light (With Dual Yellow Light Laser) is a non-ablative laser widely considered to be the most effective procedure for epidermal melasma, rosacea & fine capillaries. A series of weekly treatments will also rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen production to improve the skin texture, reduce fine lines, & even out the skin colour. Over at #EPW, all procedures are performed by doctors only. You can be assured of the high-standard of quality & professionalism at EPW Laser + Medical #Aesthetics Clinic!
Thank you Dr Wong, for your care & patience! Special thanks to Simon for making all the arrangements!
