The Most “Canggih” Skin Laser Treatment that I personally tried at Clique Clinic
Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!
Couple of week ago, I am invited to be at the Launch of PICO GENESIS at Clique Clinic. Clique Clinic isl located at Petaling Jaya and it is a reputable clinic that be able to help you to achieve your appearance goal. I am so happy to share with you about the latest techonology in laser treatment. If you followed my blog earlier, you might have noticed that I have tried numerous skin treatment like acid peeling, fractional laser, carbon laser, lumi facial.. you name it. So, what make this PICO Genesis different than the rest? Before we get into that I need to explain on what laser can do and what it is really about.
First off, laser treatment for the skin is a cosmetic procedure that use an intense light beam to treat your skin. A laser is effectively a machine that makes billions of atoms pump out trillions of photons (light particles) all at once so they line up to form a really concentrated light beam.Lasers use heat (and light) to stimulate the growth of fibroblasts, which lead to collagen production in the skin. I mean we all know that the more collagen means firmer, fresher, younger-looking skin. Laser treatment are commonly used to help treat wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, face blemishes, stretch marks, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and even tattoo removal.
There are many laser machine out there in the market just like there are many car manufacture. What excite me the most is that this Pico Genesis Cutera Machine is the top range in the laser industry. It is basically the “ferrari” in laser world. At the event, I was told that the Cutera Machine cost RM 1 million. OMG right? Why does it have to be sooo expensive? It is because This treatment machine uses the world’s first and only dual wavelength and pulse duration laser system.
In matter of fact, Clique Clinic is the first and the only clinic (currently) that managed to bring in the the technology to Malaysia. Check out the video below and you would understand more on how awesome is the machine :
In short, you can expect efficient result with Pico Genesis. If the traditional laser machine takes up to 3 to 4 visit in order to treat skin issue, with this new machine the number of treatment time can be reduced because of its efficiency. I was informed that this new machine able to penetrate to the deepest layer that once never thought possible. Not just that, there is also no down time involved.

During the event celebrities and even Dr Lim himself share their experience and it gets me so eager to try it out myself.
I just have to be honest, I put a high expectation on the treatment. I really hope that it does what it claimed so I could share this discovery on my platform and share the good news to everyone out there. I scheduled my appointment and here we go.
Clique Clinic is located at 4, Jalan 19/36, Seksyen 19, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Malaysia. You can easily waze or use google map to the location. Not very hard to find as it is located at a main road. The operating hours is from 9am to 7pm and do avoid lunch break from 1pm to 2pm. They are closed on Public Holidays, I think it is best for you to call up for an appointment to secure a consultation slot. They can be reached at 03-7960 1211 or you may also email them at email@example.com
As I arrived, I was escourted to a consulation room, where I meet Dr. Bob (forgot to snap picture with him!! its okay I will come again for my follow up will try to take a picture with him then haha). I was told to fill up a form which is a normal process for a clinic. Then, Dr. Bob explain to me further on PicoGenesis. To sum it up Pico Genesis is the new laser toning treatment to decrease pigmentation and build collagen with NO DOWNTIME. Pico Genesis skin rejuvenation treatments are great for all skin types.
Right after that, my face are being cleansed by Kasturi. She is one of the nurse at Clique Clinic. She then took my picture to document on my skin condition before the treatment.
This is how the treatment room looks like.
and…. that is the most raved machine we talked about earlier. I cant stop staring at the machine. Really? This machine cost 1million? . Being a clumsy person by nature, I am trying my best not to fall or broke anything. Chanting in my heart, “illy please not now, not here” LOL It is the closest I have been to such a canggih and exclusive device. It makes me nervous. I have such high hope on this machine. Please dont despair me!!
I lay down and this is my skin condition currently. Not too bad huh? Maybe I will try to get some soft copy picture that we took by nurse Kasturi, I think that would be a great idea. No numb cream were put on my skin. Which is good because it means that the treament wont hurt and it also take shorter time because if numb cream applied then it will take extra 30mins to wait for the numb cream to be effective before starting with the treatment.
Okay here is the treatment verdict, there is pain. I would be lying if I told you there are no pain involved. However, the pain is minimal. Completely barerable. I even had a good chat with Dr.Bob, he is very warm and friendly it makes me feel very comfortable during the treatment. What I like the most about the treatment is that it is super efficient. Dr. Bob did 2 round of laser treatment on my face it takes up less than 30mins. I was like “that’s it?” haha
I took this picture right after treatment was done. (please, excuse my gigantic nose). After the treatment Clique Clinic send me a whatsapp on the Post Treatment Tip. I was told to apply moisturizer and sunblock SPF 50++ and above to prevent dry skin and sun damage. Not an issue as my everyday skincare ritual does include all the steps already. Meaning no extra care needed from my end.
This picture taken a day after the treatment. I am impressed. My pores on the cheek somehow vanished. No skin peeling after the the treatment too.
This picture taken 4 days after the treatment. I think my skin looks healthier and revived here. The actually result can be seen after 3 weeks of the treatment. This is to allow the skin heal itself from the inside after the Clique® Enlighten™ PICO Genesis™ treatment. So far, I am happy to experience that it really do not have a down time, that the pain in minimum.. it really does what it claimed.
Last time, when ever I opt to go for laser treatment I will plan ahead and make sure that I have no event that need to be attend within 2 weeks time because I cant wear make up, my skin will be flacky and red pathes appears. With this Pico Genesis, those are none of my worries. Yeay for that!!
I cant wait for the final result. In the mean time I will continue to document my skin improvement. Do come back to my blog soon to check out the final result k? If you are interested to try it out the price for Clique® Enlighten™ PICO Genesis™ start from RM 1,500 However it really depending on your skin condition and what are your goals. I would suggest for you to reach out to Clique clinic to get a consulation.
That’s about it today. Thank you for spending your time to read my humble opinion. I hope it is somehow beneficial if you are looking for an options to go for laser treatment. Till next blogpost, dont forget to take it easy and smile!
