Last week, I ended up going for my very first scar removal laser treatment with Clique Clinic on their new PICO Genesis machine. So I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I hardly show off legs, mainly because i’ve got so much scars on it. I did a lot of ninjutsu, injuries+dry skin, not the best combination, and on top of it, I went climbing on a mango tree not realizing I’m actually allergic to mango sap.
I remember when I was in high school, I got teased on by guys for my scars on my legs and I ended up crying, but as I grew older, I came to terms with it and decided it ok to have scars, not my ideal situation, but it really shouldn’t affect my decisions to shorts/skirts etc. However, I still always ended up photoshopping to make the scars look less obvious.
Just a quick introduction to the PICO Genesis machine, it is the latest laser machine that helps the removal of pigmentations on the skin. Clique Clinic has the first machine so you won’t be able to find this treatment everywhere else. Incase if you are not used to laser treatments, here’s a quick brief

So just a share on my procedure, to be honest it was only about 30 minutes so it was a really quick procedure. Took some before photos, which I will share once I get my hands on them, and we started straight into the laser procedure itself. Keeping in mind I only paid for 1 hour parking and I walked out of the clinic before my ticket expired, and this includes the time to taking the before photos, filling up registration form as well as the laser treatment itself. Efficient huh? I did the pores on my face as well as the scars on my leg.
ok that’s all from me this week! Will be updating again next week so do feel free to drop by for the latest update on my journey with PICO Genesis!
