I’ve recently joined Trinity Medical Centre in a bid to get the perfect skin. Ever since my skin improved, I’ve been trying to find ways and products to improve it further but you know certain problems like enlarged pores, pimple scars and acne can be really hard to fix with just products alone. There’s just so much products can do.
Therefore, right now I’m doing my facials and laser treatments with Trinity Medical Centre. I’ve gone for 2 sessions so far and I’m pleased with the progress!
Waiting for my turn (:
When I had my first skin consultation with the doctor, she mentioned that my skin is pretty well maintained except for common asian problems like enlarged pores, pigmentations (from old pimple scars) and occasional pimple/blemish outbreaks. And the good news is that, IT ALL CAN BE FIXED WITH THEIR LASER AND FACIAL TREATMENTS. Wooo to the freaking hoo! Cos I’ve been looking for the divine solution to minimize my pores(hopefully even close them completely hahaha) and zap my scars off. So happy I’ve found the solution!
So here’s my bare face (w eye make up only)!
The right side of my face is a bit red and irritated cos of the mega pimple I had below my eyes. So you can see, the problem area of my face is mainly my cheeks! Enlarged pores and pimple scars!
So, Doctor Lim wanted me to start with facial treatment called Aqua ST first!
The Aqua ST system is the newest skin treatment that provides both non-invasive exfoliation and delivery of topical solutions to safely and painlessly cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skins. In addition, the Aqua ST is unique because it does not use crystals or other abrasive particles that can irritate the skin. Love it cos there’s no downtime!
It treats hyper pigmentation, photo damage, acne, dehydration, congestion, blackheads and fine line wrinkle.
The 3 serums I used for this treatment were :
AS – The Aqua ST AS (All-Skin)
It assists in dislodging dead cells for exfoliation and provides residual hydration that aids in firming and smoothing fine lines.
SA – The Aqua ST SA (Salicylic Acid)
Solution is specially formulated for oily and acne prone skin. It active ingredients include Pentylene Glycol and Spirea Ulmaria Extract to penetrate the pores and dislodge dead cells for exfoliation.
AO – The Aqua ST AO (Anti-Oxidant)
Solution is formulated with stabilized Vitamins A, E & White Tea Extract to combat free radicals and environmental damage to the skin cells.
Here’s the room where I did extraction and Aqua ST!
This is the Aqua ST machine!
Aqua ST treatment was very soothing and painless, and my skin instantly felt smoother and suppler! Not lying!!! I really touched my face a lot after the treatment to feel the difference.
Have to go back for another 4-6 sessions to see more lasting and significant results 😀
After that, I moved to the other room for my Carbon Laser Peel Treatment! I love laser treatments cos the results are instant and so MAGICAL!
The Carbon Laser Peel treatment took about 15 minutes and it’s not very painful! It just feels like something is tapping on your skin? It also depends on the pigmentation. The darker it is, the more painful it is. So mine was about 4/10 pain level?
Like I mentioned, the Carbon Laser Peel treatment helps to reduce imperfections like enlarged pores that originate from the outer skin layer.

And my face is FREAKING smooth after laser. So smooth I was addicted to touching my face the whole day, couldn’t stop hahaha.
