I was advised by Dr. Ong to do a chemical peel, but she was too busy so I kept delaying until during the 2nd consultation, she actually asked me why I did not get it done yet (Click here for Part I & II).
Actually it’s just a simple procedure, so it doesn’t really matter which doctor does it…
..but 我就是要 Dr. Ong 嘛! ??
I’ve been travelling a bit too often in the month of December till I mixed up the only few dates that I’m actually in Singapore. Luckily, Ms. Pan Asian helped me to call in to Niks Maple to change my appointment. ?
As you can tell, Niks Maple is a no-frills clinic, so don’t expect a fanciful spa-like set-up like the “new generation” clinics nowadays. Even for making an appointment, you need to call in during clinic hours (the old-school way).
But hey! Even thought it’s damn obiang (aka old-fashioned) but it works well.
After the nurse cleansed my face, the doctor started applying the Glycolic peel 30% in a circular motion for about 3 to 5 minutes.
When the whole procedure is done, the nurse would apply some moisturiser on and… you’re done!
To be honest, I felt nothing throughout the whole Chemical peel procedure. Maybe it was because I did a few times before in Taiwan (here). Then again, only the lowest strength (which is 30% Glycolic acid) was used because it’s the first time I’m doing it with Niks Maple.
Only during the 2nd Chemical peel appointment which is 3 weeks later will 70% Glycolic acid be used.
Oh, and it costs $85.60 SGD inclusive of GST for the Chemical peel regardless of strength.
