One Doc Medical Plus, Publika [Review]


One Doc Medical Plus is an aesthetic clinic that specialize in laser treatment
they started about 1.5months ago in Publika
though new to this area
this is the second branch of One Doc Medical Group

in less than ONE year
One Doc Medical Laser & Aesthetic has grown from zero to hero
3 branches in total
I have to admit this is really an achievement
Impressive much!! 
*thumbs up*



One Doc Medical Plus, Publika is a Medi-Spa concept clinic
where it means customers :
1. Get their treatment
2. Painless
3. Relax

unlike usual facial that are almost always emphasized on extraction part
which turned off a lot of customers with skin problems

I love the layout of this clinic as front desk and consultation / clinic areas are separated by a door
no need to worry about privacy issues when you are doing your treatment here =)

Front Desk Reception

Consultation and Treatment area

Consultation Room

As they are specialized in Laser Treatment
they emphasize in Pre, During and Post Laser Therapy care
your skin will be in good hands if you follow their treatment regime =)

During my consultation with Dr Micheal
he provided me with detailed explanation on my skin issues
I've never really understood how my skin - combination skin (inside dry, outside oily) occurs 
until the day I consulted Dr Micheal. (for reals.)
He explained everything in detail. 


I then proceed to do One Doc Medical Facial Treatment
it is their signature laser treatment for Pimples - Pigments - Pores
3 main skin issues faced by most asians

It targets my skin problem (pimples and pores)
not so much of pigment problems (yet)

So what's the difference between Normal Facial vs One Doc Medical Facial?

In normal facial, they treat your symptoms but not the underlying issues
meaning, if you have blackheads, 
they'll extract your blackheads out
and most of the time - that's it.

On the contrary
One Doc Medical Facial emphasize on treating the underlying cause of a skin problem

Hence, there are 4 steps in this treatment :

Step 1 : Cleansing + Extraction

It removes the top layer of your skin (dead skin) and removes clogs and impurities in blocked pores. A vacuum equipment will be used to "suck" out unwanted materials in your pores.


Step 2 : Laser Treatment


This then FURTHER REMOVE dirts from your pores - core step to treat a skin problem so your existing issues will not keep coming back.


Step 3 : Omega Light Therapy

After laser treatment, your skin will be slightly inflamed and hence this is important to ensure optimum after-laser effect. There's a lot of clinics that do not provide this treatment, causing post-laser skin breakdown / flaky dry skin after laser treatment.
Different light target different skin issues. More details below.


Step 4 : Serum Infusion

This is to "seal" the pores that has been "opened" during Step 1 - 3. Different skin issues will require different serum formula, which has been individually crafted by One Doc doctors.

Some of my pictures during my treatment :

Step 1 : Cleansing + Extraction

This picture below is taken when they use the vacuum-liked equipment

Extraction 

After extraction, I was transferred to another room for laser therapy
this is me (with my red nose and forehead scars after extraction) while waiting for my laser therapy
my skin already feel much cleaner after vacuum cleansing 


Step 2 : Laser Therapy

What you feel : Like rubber band hitting on your face
What you smell : burnt smell - but no worries at all
Pain level : Near zero



Step 3 : Omega Light Therapy

How it works :
Different wavelength penetrate different layers of skin
hence targeting different skin issues

and that's me under light therapy
it is not painful / intimidating at all.

Step 4 : Serum Infusion

serum is applied on your skin before they put face mask on you
then, they will run the machine on your face
to "push" serum into deep skin layers

after the treatment (approximately 1 hour)
you get a post-laser goodie bag too! *whee*

Closeups of my skin after treatment

my skin is (obviously) much more radiant and firm

FAQs :

1. Does it hurt? Any downtime / side effect ?

One Doc uses controlled, safe protocol endorsed by their accredited doctors. The treatments are very gentle and there is minimal / no downtime. Some people will get dry skin after laser therapy, but this will be fixed by using One Doc's Post-Laser care products.


2. Will medical facial thin the skin?

Physically, you'll feel your skin is thinner due to the removal of dead skin @ outer layer. However, functionally the skin is thickened as laser therapy promotes collagen production and remodeling.


3. How are the therapists trained?

They have to undergo a course in KL headquarters and are regularly supervised by senior medical doctors that are specially trained in aesthetic medicine.


4. What are the contraindications of this procedure?

You may not be suitable for this treatment if you have :
  • epilepsy / history of seizures or fits in the past
  • previous aesthetic procedure that will incur photodynamic reaction
  • pace maker / defibrillator 
  • tattoo whitening
  • gold thread-lift treatments
  • pregnancy


5. How often do I need to do this treatment?

It really, depends on your skin type. Some skin type need treatment every fortnight, some only once a month or lesser. Of course, you will see faster improvement if you do it regularly.
