Premier Clinic – A Review

This really weird looking patch of dry skin formed around my mouth and eyelids a couple of days after I returned from Japan. Me being me, I ignored it which of course made it worse (will I ever learn?). I looked like I had tiny fish scales on my face!  I was on week 2 of slapping on moisturizers, petroleum jelly and even a baby diaper rash cream in vain when I discovered Premier Clinic – one of Malaysia’s leading aesthetic clinics.

An aesthetic intervention? Well, why not? I made an appointment four days in advance with Premier Clinic’s Bangsar branch (there’s another one in TTDI) and they accommodated me graciously. Sneaking away from the kids, I drove over. But you know Bangsar. Parking is a nightmare and that day wasn’t an exception. I ended up parking in Bangsar Village 2. The walk from there was 3 minutes, tops. But that’s only because I managed to evade all the zealous promoters trying to ask for donations, push their credit cards and steal my kidney.

The moment I stepped into Premier Clinic’s cool interior, I could feel my shoulders relax. Which isn’t very much actually, because let’s face it; I was in a clinic disguised as a spa. There are needles and scalpels behind those closed doors.

News clippings of the doctors
Ready…

As if sensing my nerves, one of the nurses struck up a friendly conversation with me while I was filling out some forms. When I told her I walked from Bangsar Village 2, her eyes widened. “Miss, next time you just park in front of the clinic. We have two reserved spots for patients.” Face palm. 

And then, just like a regular clinic, Suba, the nurse called me into the doctor’s room and I had a consultation with Dr. Kee. He immediately struck me as a real straight-up kinda guy. Like if he was standing in an election against some of our *cough* politicians, he’d get my vote. I told him about my dry skin and my long-standing issue with pigmentation.

He scrutinized my fish scale patches first, and said, “The best thing you can do is apply coconut oil.”

I almost laughed out loud. Why didn’t I think of that?

But no amount of coconut oil was going to help with the pigmentation problem. Dr. Kee recommended a couple of treatments but the moment I heard the word “needles”, I vetoed him. Unfazed, he suggested a couple of non-invasive options: q-Switch Nd: YAG Laser Therapy and LED Photomodulation Therapy.

“The LED one is just a light shining on your face. And the Laser, don’t worry, you’ll just feel like ants running over your face.” Dr. Kee smiled before Suba led me to get settled in the treatment room.

Yeah, ants with fangs.

Applying numbing cream
Steady…

I should have been suspicious when Suba began to apply numbing cream on my face. But the soothing music playing in the background tricked me into believing I was about to have a facial. Then, when the safety goggles were placed over my eyes, blocking out my vision, my heart rate kicked up. Suba maintained her light chatter with me as she continued her prep and I was grateful for the distraction. As soon as I heard Dr.Kee enter the room, though, I began to breathe easy.

That first zap of the laser stung but it was bearable. Dr.Kee stopped to check on me. When I gave him the thumbs up to continue, he talked me through the whole thing (roughly 10, maybe 15 minutes). The laser penetrates deep into the skin to remove those pesky cells that cause age spots, making way for new cells to grow. Also, this is purely off the record, but it temporarily takes care of facial hair too! The smell of burning hair is quite disturbing, though.

q-Switch Nd:YAG Laser Therapy
Go!!

The LED therapy, by comparison, was very relaxing. I almost dozed off while the special lights above my face seeped into my skin for 16 minutes. Just like photosynthesis, our body uses light to produce cells that are happy and healthy.

All in all, my first visit to an aesthetic clinic went as well as it could go. I’d give the whole experience a 7/10.

At home that night, I noticed some small red bumps on my face, like insect bites, but it vanished a few days later. My skin doesn’t look spectacularly different but I’m sure these things need more than one session for the changes to be obvious. Oh, as for those dry patches, Dr. Kee was absolutely right about the coconut oil 😉

Premier Clinic Bangsar with Dr. Kee
I survived!

If you’re wondering whether to give aesthetic treatment a shot, consider these three questions:

  1. Do you have lots of money or know how to get it? (Just to give you an idea how much, my session totaled to RM1000.)
  2. Is your current beauty regimen just not cutting it for you anymore?
  3. Do you have a specific problem(s) with your appearance that will benefit from a medical intervention?

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, then why not make an appointment with Premier Clinic for a free consultation?

    Didn’t get to see your before and after it would help more for us to evaluate better I think. But from your post the treatment must have help in some way too.

    Hello Marilyn,

    The experience sounds really good cos I always think these treatments will hurt and be uncomfortable.
    I would have love to see how your skin is after the treatment.
    Much love,
    Everest
