Skin Pores Care
Many devices and regimen are designed for skin pores treatment. The following
is the list of treatments available in our clinic.
Fractional laser makes micro dots on the skin with the same depth as or
more than that of the shaving in resurfacing. Even if it is deeper than
resurfacing, redness only is observed, lasting for 3 days to a week. The
skin produces new collagen fiber along the micro holes showing tighter
skin or improved texture of acne scars.
Micro Laser Peel
MAX peel is a skin peeling done with Q-switched laser. A thin layer of
ink is applied on the skin to evaporate it with the skin keratin by using
laser. The effect is somewhat similar to what is seen in chemical peeling.
Besides easing wrinkle lines, Botox and Dysport has also the function
of suppressing sebum secretion into skin pores, making pores less noticeable.
Some might notice good skin texture after doing Botox for expression wrinkle
Male hormone androgen stimulates sebum secretion into skin pores
causing them to look dilated and sometimes produce acne inflammation. Even
women have minute amount of androgen that causes these skin problems. Using
medication to suppress this function of the hormone is available, but
only advisable to severe sebum secretion or acne, and not recommended
to male individuals for side effect reasons such as gynecomastia, male
problems of having female breast- alike appearance.
Vitamins C, B2, and B6 have important roles in skin cell metabolism.
These vitamins are necessary in producing energy needed for the cell activity.
So to obtain good skin texture, oral and topical medications are prescribed
in general skin care program and also in pores care.

Scars/Acne Scarｓ Care
Different kinds of laser are used to improve the appearance of common
wound scars or acne scars.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Skin resurfacing laser shaves the skin in micro levels as deep as
the dermis. The downtime takes longer because of its aggresive abrasion.
It takes 1 week to dry up, and redness lasts for 4 to 7 weeks depending
on the depth of the treatment.
￥10,000~ Fractional Laser
This laser digs micro dots on skin as deep as resurfacing or more.Even
if it is deeper the redness lasts only for 3 days for the shortest or 1
week for longer healing. The microholes stimulate skin regeneration, resulting
in more collagen production that is capable of improving scars.
Micro Laser Peel
This laser is just for peeling the epidermis but still deeper
than chemical peeling. More redness is seen compared to chemical procedure
but the level is more even because of its computerized laser shots. Usually
combined with fractional.
Acne Scar Treatment Set
This total acne scar care is done with sessions of lasers stated
above and is combined with other skin care medications and lasers. The
milder fractional laser and the deeper resurfacing treatment helps newer
skin to revive and let acne scars shallower and smoother. Other skin tightening
devices and IPL for discoloration are also used in this care.
Treatment is done once in 1 or 2 months and may take a year long.
