So yes, as promise this would be my post about my experience with Dr. Ko. Here's what happen. Last year around November till December 2014 I have been using some products and it cause me major breakouts. I also have been stressing alot and drinking 3 in 1 coffee alot. I got myself to blame. You can really see how my skin really are live between my two videos. Before treatment in the Dettol video and after treatment in the Planner review video. I always have these kind of moment. a few months my skin is good and after that my skin goes worst. It is because as a beauty blogger and am taking the risk of trying so many skincare products. Some of them help we with the healing process some just don't. But sometimes these products takes months to really make my skin heal back. So another fast option is by visiting professional skin specialist. Dr. Ko billboard is everywhere. I bet you are familiar with this. Glad I got the chance to experience myself with this kind of professional treatment who knows the real science of a good skin. They are available in most state and since I am in Johor, I made an appointment at the Dr. Ko Taman Pelangi branch. The major problem that I am lookign foward for this treatment is to help reduce my season acne problem + acne scar problem.
A little bit of introduction, Dr Ko Skin Center is basically a place where they provide aesthetic and non aesthetic beauty treatments. You can check the whole list of what service they are offering. More about Dr. Ko Skin Center click here.
As I arrive, I was greeted nicely, everyone were very welcoming and the clinic it self is pretty nice. I waited for my consultation turn. Before I went to any kind of treatment I tell them about my skin problem. After that they check and explain what is the skin problem I have been facing. Also I feel so honor for them to actually call Dr. Ko himself for him to see my skin problem. They video call Dr. Ko as you can see in the picture above and Dr Ko himself analyze my skin and let the beautician confirm about what treatment I should get. The main branch was located at Klang and there is where Dr. Ko is available.
First they help to remove my makeup. It was the most relaxing part till I realize the next treatment I am getting is the tiring part. Haha. The first treatment I got after they remove my makeup is called "Extraction". I think that is the name. Basically they will remove ALL impurities and stubborn dirt on my face. Here what you have to know how the situation goes. I wore makeup since 18. Imagine, all of the makeup I pile up on my face that is stuck inside my pores. Cleansing alone wont help, and actually we have to do skin extraction at least to my opinion 2 times a year just like scaling your teeth. I never knew about this and just realize how this change my whole skin condition. What she actually doing is the uses this some kind of tool and "extract" out all the dirt from my face. It pretty painful but bearable. Just for 45 minutes, after that I surely feel that you will feel the satisfaction of realizing all the black heads, whiteheads, and clogged pores has been extracted out. This also help to make skincare works better on my skin.
After that they cool it down my face with this mask that harden after a few minutes. I can't remmember what is the name of this treatment. But I kinda love it! It's very soothing after the painful situation I got earlier. Haha! The reason why it is too painful to my opnion is that it was my first time. So after this, it will be less painful. hehe.
The third treatment that I got is called the Dual Light Treatment. This is where they will work the "light device" against my face. It is actually very warm. So before that, they apply this kinda like gel to my face before using the light. This treatment is meant to help reduce my acne scars and helps to brighten my skin instantly.
So brightttt! This treatment is not painful at all.
Here is my tired face. Haha! My bare face after the treatment with only brow makeup. Lol. Still want to put some makeup hah sabrina. Yalah, need to drive back home ma. Must look a bit fancy.
After the treatment, they also gave a a full set of skincare to e use. You can read it out here - Ko Dermacare Skincare Products Review. It is meant to be a good product to be use after this treatment so the treatment goes along well.
So here is my unedit raw picture of my bare skin. Before treatment, I have this small cyst & bumps around my face and my skin is between too dry and too oily in some part. It is really not the best time of my skin during that time. I was so stressed!
After the treatment my skin looks very "red", it must cause by the extraction I did earlier during the treatment. And if you notice, my skin is actually brighter. This is because of the Dual Light Treatment benefits. Bare in mind that both of these pictures are taken in the same lighting and venue. I do see a lot of difference here!
After a few weeks of using their products and after the treatment. My skin has been continuously become better and better.
So far straight from my heart I got to say I am really satisfied with Dr. Ko Service. They really know what they are doing and I love how they consult me with the best treatment that I could get. Although I am a beauty blogger, my knowledge about skin is not as good as a real beautician who spend years of study these topics. This treatment is yes provided by them but I am not paid to said only nice things about it. I've been to some aesthetic treatments before and I found that Dr. Ko is by far the best. I am looking forward to have more skin treatment with them in the future. So got to work hard while I am young now to get the best skin treatment when I reach my 30s 40s years! hehe. I glad that the clinic is really near to my house here in Johor. For price wise, it is better for you to go and consult with them first because they said each skin problem has a different type of pricing. Don't worry, they are very professional and I recommend you to get consultation from them first on what is your skin problem is. In shaa Allah (with God wills) they are able to help with it. They are doctors! Also there are other options other than facial treatments, you can try products that help to remove acne scars such as this best scar removal cream.
