Honestly, I was afraid to go or try any aesthetic treatment because all all the horror story that I heard. I an very happy to be proven wrong. It was such a great experience and very effective. One the main reason why I trusted to go for my first aesthetic treatment despite all the misperception that I had is that all the doctor are professional and have years an years working experience. Which make me felt more secure due to their high standards of professionalism.

I basically did few procedure for my concerned areas. I am planning to divide this entry into 2 sections. First I’ll be sharing about my Milia Seed Removal Procedure and next is the acne scar removal (peeling treatment). Let’s start of by checking their treatment room.

At this treatment room, my make up was removed and my face is cleansed to make sure that it is completely clean and ready for the procedure. Next, numb cream were applied. Check out the amount of scars I had. Trust me, this is 100 times better compared to my earlier condition. When I was a teenager, I suffered a serious acne issue that lead to all these scaring. I grow up trying sooo many beauty products to resolve this issue. Then, I start to document my journey with each product. Ya, it is actually one the the main reason I created this blog. To help others to have more insight of the products they wanted to purchase.

Aesthetic Doctor Lee Peck Kuan performing the CO2 Laser Resurfacing on me.

So first lets talk about my C02 Laser Resurfing Treatment that I did to remove the milia seeds that I had. I have around 12 milia seeds around my eye area. If you are wondering, Milia seeds occur in areas of the body where we have pilosebaceous glands (where hair follicles grow), similar to acne. Although the exact cause is still not known, it is thought that milia seeds occur when the sweat glands are underdeveloped or damaged. In my case, I tried sooo many products but it does not go away.

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment?

Using advanced laser technology, a carbon dioxide (CO2)laser for skin resurfacing precisely removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the underlying skin which is softer, smoother, and younger looking.This technology allows the laser skin resurfacing treatment to provide some of the most dramatic, age-defying results possible.


The procedure can be performed on specific areas, such as around the mouth or eyes , or over the surface of the entire face. During a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment, a topical anaesthetic is used to relieve potential discomfort.


What are the benefits of CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment?


By precisely removing damaged skin layer by layer, a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment is able to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, “turning back the clock” on your complexion and revealing the more youthful looking skin that lies underneath. The CO2 laser, when used for the skin resurfacing procedure, can also lessen the appearance of scars and many other skin imperfections. Benefits include not only the effective correction of moderate to deep lines and wrinkles, but also treatment for uneven pigmentation, photodamage, precancerous spots, and a host of other skin imperfections and benign lesions (eg: Moles/ Skin Tags/ Oil Seeds/ Eye Cholesterol Deposits/ Warts).

To conclude, it is not as painful as I imagine. At first when the nurse/beautician applied the numb cream I felt a little bit nervous but then when undergoes the procedure all the feeling just vaporise. It is not painful and totally bearable. I am very happy trough out my whole experience as all the staff in KO Specialist treat me very friendly and very attentive. I am happy with my milia seed removal procedure.

TCA Skin Peeling

We have arrived to the best part of my treatment. It is the TCA Skin Peeling treatment. I was advised by Dr. Lee that this is the best treatment for my concern which is acne scar. Just incase you are wondering, Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is the main peeling agent used for medium peels, though the peel may also be done in several steps using a different chemical solution followed by TCA. This method helps to rejuvenate and repair your skin. Since this procedure cause the skin to physically peel,it will allow new baby skin to come out and all the marks will peel off together with the old skin.

TCA peels are medium depth peels, ranging from 8% to 30% strengths. Though their concentrations might not be as high as other chemical peels, TCA peels are considered much deeper peels than lactic acid and glycolic acid peels.

TCA peels brighten and even out your skin tone by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation (dark spots, acne marks, sun spots, freckles) and skin discoloration. They revitalize dull-looking skin, helping skin look soft and smooth. Because of their deep exfoliating effects, TCA peels can clean out congested pores to refine the surface of your skin. TCA peels are also great for erasing fine wrinkles and treating sun damage.

TCA peels are serious peels with about 7-14 days worth of downtime. If you are considering getting one done, definitely schedule some time off of work and clear your calendar because you don’t want to get any sun exposure after the peel and you’ll probably look too red and flaky to be presentable. If you still remember I was wearing a face mask like a ninja to avoid people from being scared. If you do the chemical peel few days before Halloween, then you dont need any other make up to scare people off.. hahaha

How much will it hurt? Depending of the level of TCA concentration used for you and how many layers were applied. On average is about 4-6 layer of chemical peel and for my condition I did 12 layer. I was informed that Dr. Lee did 20 layers of peeling before..SALUTE!! It is no surprise that her skin is sooo nice Smile  Actually, I saw all the staff at KO Skin Specialist have top notch porcelain skin. during the first application you will feel some tingling sensation and felt like something is working on your skin. I personally felt some painful sensation, then it wear off. Once you can feel the sensation, the next peel is applied. Then the process repeated until the maximum level than you can tolerate. The more layer of peel put on your face, you will feel that the sensation n tingling increase. One of the key to hang on is to understand that the more layer of peel, the more beautiful the result.

Let’s cut the chase and let me show you the picture of my TCA peeling journey.

skin peeling 2

This picture taken on the 8th day of my journey. All the skin just peel off, it does look super scary I must agree but then again the peeling it not painful as it look. At this stage, it is super duper important to wear sunscreen to protect the new developed skin. So after all the hard work, I am very happy to share with you the result.

14th day

Above is the picture taken on my 14th day. All my skin have peel off (please excuse those small nose area). Bear in mind that this all the picture posted here are non filtered so you can see the result. I must say that around 80% of my scars is gone! Please bear in mind that you need to be realistic when it comes to managing expectation. If you have far more serious scarring compared to mine then you might need to go for few times of treatment.

Then it is time to get down to cost. Each person is unique and have different type of skin concern and current condition, the pricing will be varies based on that. As for my skin condition, Dr. Lee informed me that my milia seed procedure cost around RM400 ( I believe totally worth it since I have 12 seeds in total, I remembered getting a quotation of RM100 for each milia seeds at other clinic) and for the skin peeling is around RM700. Then again, please drop by at any of KO Specialist outlet to get the consultation and personalised quotation for your skin condition. I also managed to snap this one time offer that they are having for those who are having pigmentation issue. You can check out the price list below.
