不要盲目跟随,要明白自己要的是什么


来医学美容的病人在咨询问诊的时候,这是我会问的一个重要的问题:

“其实,你想要进行医美疗程,微整形,打针等等,是不是你自己所想要的改变?”

是不是因为朋友圈都做了微整形,所以你要跟风?
是不是为了取悦某些人(男友/丈夫),而想要变成他们喜欢的样子?
是不是潮流现在流行这些疗程,所以想要跟上潮流?
是不是因为情伤,而想要改变自己的样子?
是不是为了更好的工作机会,或生活圈子,而被逼的改变以迎接这个外貌为重的社会?

当你做得太多了,对于疗程的需求不能得到满足,其实有可能是一种病态,Body Dysmorphic Syndrome。

微整形的真正目的,让你透过与医生咨询沟通,可以更了解自己的特点,医生帮忙让你可以强调自身轮廓的优点,隐藏缺点,进而让你的自然美更明显突出,变得更吸引人。

简单来说: 让你美的地方更美,保持你个性独特的优点。


不要盲目跟随潮流,潮流一直在变
不要为了取悦他人而改变,要为自己而活
不要因为没有自信而想要改变外貌,应该改变的其实是自己的内心。

让医美让你看起来更精神,更容光焕发,更能展现你的独特美丽,因而让你更自信自在的好好生活,才是医美的要点。

为自己而活!

我想听到的答案:

“是的,是我要让自己更进步,更精神,更自信而想要进行疗程得到改变。”


经验的重要性


“医生,同样的镭射机器,为什么不同医生弄出来的效果会不一样的?”

小丽在我替她进行镭射净肤疗程的时候,问了我这一个问题。

这是一个很多人常常困扰的问题。

“同样的机器,出来的效果不是应该都一样的吗?”
她说。

“不一样的,原因有很多。”

镭射有很多种类,不同的种类波长,不同的厂商,不同的品牌,给于不同的功能。
就好像汽车一样,不同的引擎,不同的型号,不同的马力等等。

选择一个好的镭射,就好像选择一个好的汽车一样。
首先,先明白自己的需求是什么:跑车?4人车?7人车?
镭射就是:特定的波长,以治疗特定的皮肤问题。

好的,需求确定了,那么就要选择镭射的机器,得看看生产的品质,得看看制造使用的材料,得看看有没有医学临床论文,得看看使用的便利,安全性。
就好像选择汽车一样,同类型的有便宜的有昂贵的,先进电子仪器的,自动档的,材料品质,安全性,舒适性,和不同的品牌。
好品质,安全性高,性能好的,通常都是一些好品牌。

那么,如果镭射是一样的,那么为什么不同医生的效果不一样?

和驾车一样,每一个司机都是不一样的。
司机都要考试获取驾驶执照,获取资格后,驾驶的态度每一个司机都会是一样的吗?
当然不。

镭射的疗程效果,需要的是一个医生的经验。
什么样的经验?


  • 诊断皮肤问题的经验
  • 根据病人情况(生活作息,环境,精神身体状况),调整镭射设置的经验
  • 使用该镭射的经验,懂得预测效果和避免副作用后遗症
  • 术前准备,术后照顾的经验



所以,选择有经验的合格医生,是很重要
这也是,为什么同样的疗程,不同的医生下的手,出来的效果差别那么多了。

DUAL YELLOW LASER : What is it

Dual Yellow Laser is one of my favourite laser machine in my clinic. It become common in the market too. 

It has 2 wavelength which is Yellow 578nm and Green 511nm. 

It has multiple indications according to its manufacture, but among those indications which i found it help my patients more are the indications for sensitive skin, different kinds of pigmentation reduction and acne reduction treatment. 

Specific wavelength of the lasers means it only work on specific target. So it reduce collateral damage to surrounding tissues and skin, less damage, less downtime and less discomfort.

The results are visible and effective if it is done by well trained and experienced doctors. The given protocols cannot applied on all patients but the operator (doctor) need to adjust the setting and power of the laser machine for every patient with different life style, skin type, pigmentation problem, skin condition and gender.

Acne Treatment with Dual Yellow laser

The yellow light from the Dual Yellow laser destroys the P Acne bacteria, and shrinks the sebaceous gland to reduce the production of sebum. The Dual Yellow laser is the only laser which uses photodynamic therapy to destroy bacteria, without damaging surrounding tissue. It does this by activating Proto Porphyrin 9 (PPIX) which exists in P Acne bacteria. PPIX is light sensitive at 578nm.
This treatment helps in reducing active acne and speeds up healing time of existing acne.


Rejuvenation with Dual Yellow Laser


The yellow light from the Dual Yellow laser helps to generate collagen, the essential protein for giving your skin elasticity.
This happens because yellow light affects the collagen in a way that promotes regrowth; it also reduces pigmentation. So your skin will appear lightened and more youthful. With the extravasation and reabsorption of the microvasculature in the epidermisand upper dermis, skin appears refreshed, and the texture is improved with the generation of new dermal collagen.



Pigmentation Treatment with Dual Yellow Laser
The green light from the Dual Yellow laser targets the melanin, which is the principle component in the lesion. Surrounding tissue remains undamaged. You will see immediate change and in some cases the lesion will darken slightly, which is perfectly normal.
The pigment will then gradually come away over the following week. This method causes no damages to surrounding tissue 

Bulky Lesions treatment with Dual Yellow Laser (Skin tags, benign moles eg)

The special combination G30Y light from the Dual Yellow laser is absorbed by the tissue, removing the bulky lesion permanently without causing any bleeding.
