After few months of not recovering from my massive pimple outbreak, my mum step in for intervention! "Too many pimples on your face, how can you accept it? You are going to see my doctor!" Then off I went to see her doctor at Neuglow. My sister went there, and she insists that it is better than National Skin Center.

As my mum goes to Chinatown branch, so I just tag along with her when she went for her chemical peel. The environment is pretty modern and cozy. You have ample magazine (and there are the latest edition, not some few months old magazine), drinks and brochures (so you can see the latest technologies). While waiting for my turn, I browse thru the brochures and it really amazed me! Now there is "magical" light that you shone on your face, and you get face lift. You do some lazer-ing, your fats can be freeze or liquify. Next thing you know, your fats is gone! I was exclaiming these amazing news while reading, and my mum just turn to her head and roll eyes at me, and mumble "these are old news". Well, she is a regular! Which people would update themselves every now and then regarding aesthetics technology?

After waiting for 15mins, it is my turn to see the doctor. Basically he analysed my skin, understand my diets, environment, and anything that may cause the outbreak. So after analysing, he recommend extraction and blue ray on my face. Then he told me how many session I may need, the frequency between each session and the results i will be getting. Most importantly, how much? He quoted me $80 for each session. As what I practice from my mum, I told him what my mum asked me to and eventually he lower to $50 for each session! You see, my mum is a long time customer so I guess it helps alot for the bargaining.

First session the extraction is quite painful that I teared. The doctor keep apologising and consistently saying he will try to be gentle. But I really have low tolerance for pain. After that, 15mins of blue ray session for each of my poor red cheeks. What amazed me is that after shining the blue ray, my cheeks became less red by 90%! My doctor instructed me to stop using moisturer because the climate in Singapore is not suitable. Toner and sunscreen is sufficient to protect my skin. After I stop using my moisturer, my face turned very dry and more pimples erupted!

1 week later, there is still alot of pimples and my skin started to be very flaky. It is something like sun burnt but not painful. Went back to the doctor again for my weekly appointment, the extraction is EXTREMELY painful! My tears uncontrollably keep flowing and basically I think I cried the whole procedure. Beside wiping the blood or whatever residual the doctor extract off my face, she is also busy wiping my tears. I really have low tolerance for pain.

Subsequently, the flakes dropped off. The pimples died off. I have some pimples here and there, but alot of red marks on my face. The extraction is still very painful, but not as painful as previously. I guess the number of pimples help. Lesser pimples = lesser extraction. My colleagues and friends told me my face has greatly improved from the past few weeks,


So did I manage to cure my pimples? As you can see from the photo, most of it is the red marks with a few red pimples left. It is a great improvement. Imagine all the red marks is big bumps pimples previously. So I guess I still have to continue my blue ray treatment then need to get rid of the red marks.
