REVIEW: Laser Peel Experience at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre

We all know about the sophisticated Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur. The premise that speaks nothing but the quality you can ask for in aesthetic medicine. This time, Beauty Guide team made their way to the Petaling Jaya branch, situated in Tropicana City Mall. 

Beauty Director, Therese, underwent the Botox & Juvederm treatment last year (read all about the experience here!), and this time it’s the Laser Peel treatment, as recommended by the experts.

An outlet hidden in the urban city of Petaling Jaya, Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre sure did not disappoint. We were welcomed by the operating manager, Ms Jacqueline Eu, while explaining to us the various specialised treatments being offered in this branch.

A brief form on health background and personal details was given to be filled out.

But what is Laser Peel?

It is a powerful anti-aging tool using a deeply penetrating laser to exfoliate old, damaged skin (Trust us, it’s not as scary as it sounds!). Gentle to the skin while removing worn off skin cells that has been exposed to environmental insults and even from our most abundant energy, the sun. With the use of Laser Peel, it results the skin that looks and feels silky smooth and remarkably brighter. According to experienced therapists, this is mostly recommended for anyone from late 20’s to 50’s, of poor skin texture, large pores, blemish-prone and discoloured skin.

Ms Jacqueline offered a complimentary Silk Peel Dermalinfusion treatment for Therese, which was the perfect facial service pre-treatment of the Laser Peel. Suitable for those with dry, blemish-prone skin and fine lines. Silk Peel Dermalinfusion treatment has 4 key functions; cleanse, detox, vitamin c infusion, removal of dead skin cells. Resulting in silky smooth skin that emits pink radiance and a youthful glow.

With the use of medical-grade diamond heads, it allows precise exfoliation on the skin with simultaneous infusion of the Vitamin C skin hydration solution. This allows skin to become softer, smoother and more supple after treatment.

Numbing cream was applied all over the face, 20 minutes prior to Laser Peel treatment. This is to allow some time for the numbness effect to take over before the Laser Peel procedure.

During the Laser Peel treatment, Therese was assisted by Dr Wong, aesthetic medicine specialist of Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre.

Carbon extract application

An application of carbon extract was applied over the face to close up the facial pores. Laser Peel treatment was carried out using deeply penetrating laser to rid off the old skin cells, with the use of Fotona Optoflex and a smoke evacuator, to minimize the smoke that emits from the laser.

The eyes are protected over using a pair of goggles, to avoid the laser being in contact with the eyes. According to Therese, there was no pain during the procedure, however the smell of burning carbon was certainly inevitable. Covering all areas of the face, it took two whole rounds and only 10 minutes to complete the procedure.

Lastly, a chilled, soothing gel made of aloe vera was applied onto the face to ease down the skin’s sensitivity upon Laser Peel treatment.

Before & After shots of Laser Peel Treatment

Our verdict:

  • Skin appeared to be radiant and brighter with a youthful glow.
  • Hyper-pigmentations and acne scars appeared much lighter.
  • Skin felt extremely smooth, just like baby’s skin.
  • Overall skin condition felt refreshed and rejuvenated.
  • Highly recommended for men and women who wish to eliminate dead skin cells.

Many thanks to Dr. Wong for the quick and smooth procedure, making it an ultimately comfortable experience for Therese at Beverly Wilshire.
