Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing

The new gold standard in skin resurfacing that is safe for most skin types delivering dramatic ablative clinical results with minimal discomfort:
- #1 Antiaging Breakthrough according to WebMD
- Outperforms any non-CO2 based laser and device
- Powerfully reverses 5-10 years of skin aging, wrinkles, sun spots
- Dramatically reduces old acne and trauma related scarring
- Significantly minimizes risk of future development of skin cancers
- Effectively decreases dyschromia such as freckles and melasma

The old CO2 Laser Resurfacing had been the gold standard in skin resurfacing for the past couple decades as it achieved unparallel smoothness and reduction of wrinkle that no other modality can match. However, it has fallen out of favor because of significant pain requiring general anesthesia and substantial down time with the complexion appearing bloody raw for at least couple weeks.

The FRACTIONAL technology delivers the CO2 laser energy in a pixel like fashion where microscopic holes 0.3mm are punched into the skin right next to each other via computer-generated pattern. This fractionated CO2 laser technology delivers microscopic columns of 10600nm CO2 laser energy across the skin barrier, penetrating 20% of skin surface area right next to each other. The other 80% of non-ablated skin surface areas facilitate faster healing.

Fraxel, Pixel, and Pearl lasers have the right idea of fractionated laser delivery but with the wrong wavelengths thus requiring 5 treatments and inferior clinical outcome compared with ONE treatment of fractional CO2 laser technology.

A recent study confirmed that the fractional CO2 deep dermal ablation resulted in collagen remodeling for at least three months after treatment, as determined by immunohistochemical analysis of heat shock proteins.

Energy of Fractional CO2 Laser mushrooms in the papillary dermis
--> Skin Tightening --> Continual Collagen Production up to 6 months

As a result, Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing achieves true resurfacing efficacy with comfort:

Simply outperforms any non-CO2 based laser and device for skin rejuvenation
Relatively short downtime, typically 4-6 days.

Minimal discomfort as only topical anesthetics needed for most individuals; mild sedation for additional comfort available for patients with transportation
Safe and effective for virtually all skin surface areas including face, neck, chest, back, arms and hands.

Potentially may pay for the procedure itself with less need of fillers for wrinkles and age lines, not to mention much less risk of skin cancers

Cosmetic appearance continues to improve with stimulation of collagen production up to 6 months after procedure.

Survey Shows Majority of Respondents Openly Discuss Use of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Despite what some may think, people aren’t hiding their use of BOTOX® Cosmetic and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. In fact, according to survey statistics released today by The Aesthetic Surgery Education & Research Foundation (ASERF), the research arm of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), nearly nine out of 10 respondents (87 percent) openly discuss their BOTOX® Cosmetic and hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatments with others, with seven out of ten (70 percent) receiving support from the people they told.

“In a similar survey issued four years ago, we dispelled the myth that Hollywood and corporate wives were the typical BOTOX® Cosmetic patient,” says ASERF President Laurie Casas, MD, a plastic surgeon practicing in suburban Chicago. “Now, demographic and perception data trends show us that aesthetic injectable treatments have continued to evolve into mainstream and accepted options for the everyday woman.”

Is It Possible To Have A Satisfying Sex Life If We Have a Terrible Body Image?

Interestingly, new research shows that sometimes sexual dysfunction in women - frequently characterized by a lack of desire - is really all about not feeling desirable.

In a study published in the Journal of Sex Research doctors found that women who felt less attractive than did 10 years before reported a decrease in sexual desire.

Women who reported feeling as attractive as they did in the previous decade reported more satisfaction with their current sex life.

While the study doesn’t prove that feeling attractive boosts a woman’s sex drive, it does strongly suggest the two go hand-in-hand.

Breast Filler

Macrolane Breast Enlargement Fillers

Macrolane or Hyacorp Breast Enlargement Injections might just be the right solution for you!

MJ Skin & Laser Clinic is now offering breast enlargement injections to respond to millions of womens wishes: “bigger breast and reshaped buttocks without all the downside of surgery”. The procedure takes only 45 minutes and causes little if any bruising – a simple easy injection that augments the breasts and buttocks to give volume and lift.


The ideal candidates for Breast/ Buttocks Shaping Injections are:
Ladies with a size A cup who would like to go to a B, or from a size B to a C. Younger elastic skin (25-50 years) with breast tissue more than 1cm thick is the best combination and gets the most lift from Macrolane Breast Shaping injections.

Ladies who have lowered nipples and wish to recover fullness of bust when wearing an evening dress or a low top.

A lady whose nipples point outwards and would like them to go inwards would benefit from the Breast Shaping Injections.

Men or women with flat buttocks can achieve significant volume in just one treatment with the Buttocks Shaping Injections.

How does it work?

The treatment involves a simple injection that augments the breasts or buttocks to give volume and lift. A local anaesthetic is used to numb the area being treated. In the case of breast shaping, the Macrolane gel is injected using a needle in the crease below the breast and placed under the breast tissue in the subglandular plane.

What is the injection made of?

The clinic uses Macrolane product which is a smooth, clear, non-animal based hyaluronic acid gel produced by Q-med – the world leaders in the manufacturing of the facial dermal fillers. Products like Restylane and Restylane Perlane have been injected to millions of faces since a decade with minimal side effects. Macrolane is a purer and thicker version used for body aesthetics rather than facial aesthetic. It therefore creates greater volume with a slower absorption rate.

Is Macrolane Injection Safe?

Macrolane consists of Hyaluronic acid which already exists within your body and thus is not recognised as a foreign substance. Extensive trials since 2002 have shown no long term issues.

Where will the surgery be performed?
The procedure is carried out at our clinic in Shah Alam.

How long will the surgery take?
On average, the consultation with the Surgeon takes 30 min, and the procedure itself less than 45 min.

What can I expect after the procedure?
There maybe some tenderness in the area for up to a week : your breast will feel firmer than usual for a few days as macrolane gel absorbs water, after a week or 2 it begins to soften and after a few weeks becomes quite soft and very similar to breast tissue.

You can resume normal activities after the treatment and drive yourself home however it is recommended that you wear a support bra for the first week and avoid any physical activity for 2 weeks.

When can I get back to work?
In most cases, the patient can go back to work on the same day.

When can I see results and for how long will they last?
The results can be seen instantly, however you should expect some reduction in volume over the next few days. Results will last for one year, then a top up treatment is recommended to sustain the achieved shape.

Macrolane is topped up every year with roughly half the volume that is injected initially. Most people would have 200mls in the first treatment and thus have a 100ml top up after 12 months. They would then have a longer period before the next top up, say 14 months and so on.

What are the main advantages compared to traditional breast augmentation (BBA)?First of All BSI (Breast Shape Injection) is performed under local anaesthesia which lowers all the downside effects of the traditional breast plastic surgery. Macrolane Injection does not interfere with the results of Mammograms which are obstructed by silicone implants. This allows you to have regular checks of your breasts that show all of the tissue.

In addition, Breast Shape Injections are designed to give the breast a fullness and subtle reshaping by only 1 cup size, which is very difficult to achieve with surgery. However, if a woman wishes to go from an A to a C or a B to a D then Macrolane is not an appropriate treatment for her.

The ultimate success of Macrolane Injection is that a woman can check how her breast feels and looks halfway through a procedure, if she wishes she can easily have more fullness. One cannot do this with surgery.

What is the cost of the treatment?
The Procedure price starts from Rm 8-12K for Breast Shaping, any subsequent top up treatments will be charged at half price – usually 1-2 years apart.

The Body and Buttock treatment price will depend on the volume of product required.

Dermal Fillers-Lip Augmentation

Injectable dermal fillers are injectable gels made from naturally-occurring substances, including collagen and hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are injected just under the skin in order to add volume to aging skin, lips and to fill and lift wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers add volume for a more natural youthful appearance.

The majority of dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid as their main active ingredient. Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers include Restylane, Juvederm, Teosyal and Esthelis. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin.

Injectable dermal fillers are used to fill wrinkles, lines, folds, and scars (eg. acne scars). Dermal fillers are also commonly used to give a fuller appearance to the lips.

The most common areas treated with injectable dermal fillers are the smile lines around the nose and mouth, fine lines above the mouth, frown lines between the eyes, and acne scars.

Microdermabrasion 2

1. In the past, microdermabrasion was carried out using abrasive crystals. However, in the last decade, it has become more common to use a wand with a roughened surface. This procedure requires no medical oversight and is commonly used in conjunction with facial spa treatments. These days there are a multiplicity of machines available for microdermabrasion.

2. The growth of the microdermabrasion treatment industry has led to innovations and there are currently a few different microdermabrasion methods available.

Multiple professional microdermabrasion methods exist:

Crystal microdermabrasion
1. Crystal microdermabrasion systems are the traditional treatment of choice and rely on tiny crystals that are blasted onto the skin to perform the exfoliating process.
2. Although the crystal microdermabrasion system is still widely used, the introduction of alternatives has led to a trend away from this treatment system.

Diamond microdermabrasion
1. Diamond microdermabrasion systems operate without the need for crystals. The exfoliation process occurs when a diamond tipped head makes contact with the skin and abrades against it.
2. In both crystals and diamond microdermabrasion systems the dead skin cells are sucked away from the face.
3. Microdermabrasion is a procedure where tiny particles "sand" or "polish" the skin and gradually remove scarred or discolored epidermal tissue.
4. With microdermbrasion system the surface skin cell turnover will be enhanced and the skin will be visibly fresher.
5. Microdermabrasion creams with active ingredients, are focused on skin renewal and accelerate rebuilding of healthy collagen skin cells after laser resurfacing or harsh peels.
6. For depressed scars, such as pitted acne scars, subcision with needles is often used by estheticians to break up the deeply buried scar tissue, and a microdermabrision system then speeds up new healthy skin remodeling: the orderly process of laying out new collagen and elastin fibers.

Microdermabrasion 1

  1. Microdermabrasion (often referred to as Microderm) is a family of cosmetic procedures popular in day spas, doctors' practices, and medical spas in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion, to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots on the skin.

  2. The procedure is not very painful and requires no anaesthetic.

  3. Microdermabrasion can be used medically for scar removal when the scar is raised above the surrounding skin, but is less effective with sunken scars.

  4. There is some evidence that microdermabrasion stimulates collagen formation.

  5. Microdermabrasion can also be used for treatment of acne, but must be repeated periodically to be effective.

  6. Microdermabrasion is also useful in correcting uneven tone and pigmentary skin disorders.

  7. Microdermabrasion should not be used on patients who have taken the medication Accutane (Isotretinion) in the previous twelve months.

  8. Different methods include mechanical abrasion from jets of zinc oxide or aluminum oxide crystals, fine organic particles, or a diamond tip. Particles are removed with a wand/handpiece through which the abrasive particles come.

  9. The term dermabrasion itself refers to the more severe medical procedure carried out under general or light anesthesia.

Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) Transfer

Let us share with you an exciting procedure for facial rejuvenation using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) also referred to as Autologous Platelet Gel.
Here, our very own blood is drawn, centrifuged, processed and re-injected into our face, neck, hands and even breasts for rejuvenation and enhancement.
Voila! A new you...!!! Using your very own Platelet Rich Plasma which is rich in growth factors.
Stimulate your own collagen, new skin and tissues.
The best part is, it is an outpatient, and affordable.
For more info, call us at 03-5542 2388 or email

"Platelet Gel, or PRP, is comprised of a range of autologous growth factors which act synergistically to accelerate the rate and degree of tissue regeneration, improving wound healing. When concentrated autologous platelets are mixed with calcified thrombin a series of structural and functional changes involved in coagulation take place. Secreted from the platelets are a number of factors including serotonin, fibronectin, adenosine diphosphate, thromboxane A, platelet factor 4, platelet derived growth factor and platelet activating factor. Release of these factors cause a chemotactic response and initiates the process of migration between the endothelial cells.
PlateletsThe release of these factors cause a chemotactic response and initiates the process of migration between the endothelial cells. As more factors continue to be released from platelets, monocytes and macrophages, angiogenesis, osteogenesis and the formation of granulation tissue is promoted.Clinical applications appear to be widespread. In treating chronic non-healing wounds and various plastic surgery procedures including face-lifts, laser resurfacing, breast lifts, and tummy tucks.

The application of autologous platelet gel to face, neck or brow lifts eliminates the majority of the bruising and swelling normally associated with these procedures. Healing is enhanced, with the average “down” time cut in half.
The application of autologous platelet gel in laser resurfacing has shown to eliminate the weeping seen in these cases. Total re-epithelialization is seen in 7-9 days."
