After my Cauter Procedure on September 28, 2018 (read the post HERE), I thought I’d update you all about my skin condition.
Well, as you can see from the pics above, some of the bigger spots on the upper-cheek area are getting lighter (some are gone, YEAY!). Those were the areas that used to be the home of Sebaceous Hyperplasia, so no wonder the wounds were bigger than just Milia’s wounds. I was using Dermatix Ultra, recommended by the clinic’s doctor, but after a few uses (maybe because it contains silicone and vitamin C ester?) big zits were showing up on areas near the dark spots. You see, I only use Dermatix Ultra as dark spot treatment, but if I went overboard with it, it’d break me out. So I stopped using it gradually, and went for vitamin C serum and Rosehip Oil instead.
So, what did I do to treat my Cauter’s wounds?
At Home Treatment:
- Double Cleansing: using Micellar Water & Facial Wash (gel texture is preferred)
- Toning: using Exfoliating Toner & Hydrating Toner
- Mask: using compressed sheet mask with NaCl solution (great for wounds)
- Serum: using vitamin C on dark spots.
- Facial Oil: using Rosehip Oil on dark spots
- Moisturizer: another gel texture on my beauty repertoire.
Clinic Treatment (I did these at Beauty By Appointment):
- Nd-YAG laser for skin rejuvenation and to treat dark spots.
- BBA Glow (not to be mistaken with BB Glow). This is a treatment to penetrate the serum under the skin to make the skin looks glowing.
