KCS Medical Group : Aesthetics Specialist

Is been quite sometime since I blogged about my skincare for my face as the last one was about DRx Clinic. Is already been a long while since I used Drx products and I also updated on that post regarding my visits and experience with them in the end. Like I have mentioned in the blog post, Drx did help me for a period of time, but the end services put me off.
My face was pretty alright after I used their product and I felt that I didn't need to change it, but only felt that it was a too expensive. The one thing I really wanted to get rid of was a keloid scar that is on my left chin. Sadly the injection from DRx didn't quite work and I went to ask for recommendation else where. 

   My friend told me about KCS Medical and that there is high review about it. So I went to take a look for my scar. Well, long story turns short, I ended up going for my entire face, which includes acne, pores and pigmentation. 


Is already been some time since my first visit to KCS and till today, I am still with them. The products have shown great improvement in maintaining my skin and improving it. Which I feel there is no reason to change. 

If you read my other blog post, you will know that face had really bad acne in the past and I was trying to get rid of it. When I left DRx and went to KCS, the doctor who is Dr Chua told me that you wanted to clear my skin first as it is still prone to acne. So I bought the acne skin care set first.

Note: This was taken in 2011, My face always have been like this when I have breakout and I have a lot of scars remaining. Not forgetting really big pores. 



The photo below is early 2016 when I already with them for more than a year. 


Still trying to maintain, keeping my pores in check and lighten the pigmentation. 

   


The thing that helped my skin to clear up this nicely was because of Oratane. Close to Nimegen which is another pill that I use to take when I was a teen that was for acne. I took it for around 6 - 7 month and the doctor told me I could stop taken it regularly and only take it when I need to. So for close to a year and a half. I have not been depending on this pill and so far the results has been great. Which I am really happy! 

Currently, the only time where I have a pimple is when my period is coming and it doesn't come full blown, but just one or two near the T zone area. 


Price : 50+ SGD 
(I need to double check as is been awhile, Will put the updated version soon) 


The products from KCS 


KCS Acne Skin Care Set
Includes the following below. 


1. Anti-bacterial Acne Cleanser 
2. Clarifying Oil Control Moisturizer 
3. Acne Treatment Gel 
4. Advanced C-Serum High Concentration Vitamin C 
5. SPF 90 Daily UV Defense 

Cost: 288 SGD

This was the first set I bought for them to clear my skin and I would say that it helps a lot. 
The wash was light and foamy and there is a light scent. 
The moisturizer and vitamin C cream was not overly oily on my face and just a bit was enough. 
The Acne gel can stingy when applying on a pimple and is also good to maintain it from breakout. 
The sunscreen is one of my favorite since is SPF 90 and is tinted too. 

I usually use this set in Singapore as the weather is hotter and more humid than Japan. Which means, more sweat and more prone to acne. 

There is also another set that is mainly for Hydrating instead of acne.
Is quite similar to the acne set and the only different is that the cleanser and moisturizer will change to the hydrating version and the acne gel is not included.  There is also the option of including the Triple effect Eye Serum and Anti-aging Revitalizing Serum 



The other products that they are selling is also the 
- Hydrating Makeup Remover 
- Intense Hydrating Repair Cream 
and 
- Rejuvenating Hydro Cleanser 
(Didn't have a photo because I used it finish)

Since I go to Japan and the weather is much colder and dryer, so the doctor recommended me to take up the hydrating set as well to bring over. I have been using the hydrating set when I am in Japan with the acne gel. I will switch to the acne cleanser and moisturizer during summer or when I see any pimple growing. Since they product comes from the same place, is OK to switch when needed. 

The hydrating cleanser is way more lighter and smooth than the acne cleaner and it doesn't foam. After using for a couple a months, I understand why and it doesn't help to cleanse my face while keeping the moisture. 
The Intense hydrating repair cream is thicker and moisturize than the acne series. 
The Makeup Remover is light and doesn't create a lot of foam. I am still using the Histomer Sensitive skin gel when I have it, however recently is has not been in stock so I need an alternative. Their makeup removal does its job and is not harsh to the skin. 


      With my face all clear up from annoying breakout, I felt way less stress in the past few years. Putting on makeup and skincare has been way easier and also I don't really need to use so much filter on my face or photo shop away a pimple. I also gain way more confidence and I don't even care if I go out of the house without any makeup on. I will probably by annoyed with my eye bags soon. However, currently my main concern for my skin is just the pigmentation which is the freckles and my pores which I am still trying to tighten. For those problems, only products can get you so far so I may go for treatments like laser in the near future. If I do, I shall keep my readers update and blog about it if it works! (The doctor told me confidently that it will) 

 Dr Chua is the main practitioner in the clinic and he handles all the consultation and treatment. He is a really good doctor that go straight to the point. The issue of my keloid scar was worse than I thought because is still an active scar. I tried to inject it once, but it didn't really go fully away and he told me that this thing probably won't go away for the time being and adviced me not to inject it anymore and just leave it.
He is also very straight forward and doesn't beat around the bush which is something I feel that a doctor should do. Since being a matter of my skin, I would want to know the full problem and details instead of just sugar coating it or giving half baked replies which happened to me in the other clinic. You can really tell that he loves his job and wishes his patients well! 

If you are interested in visiting KCS Medical Group and consult with Dr Chua, do book an appointment with them. Do take note of the opening hours so that you don't go there disappointed.
