TOP 5 Medical Aesthetic Treatments in Malaysia
The popularity of minimally invasive aesthetic treatments has risen significantly in the last century and is not showing any signs of leveling off. Several advancements have been made in the field of aesthetic medicine, and this has seen the introduction of a broad range of aesthetic treatments that target to overcome the common signs of aging. However, a large proportion of patients are not aware of most of these treatments. There is no specific data that shows the most popular aesthetic treatments in Malaysia, and we feel that this trend is somewhat similar globally. However, we believe that the trend of aesthetic treatments in Malaysia follows that of the Americans. With reference to data from the 2017 report published by the Americans Plastic Surgery Society. Here is what we believe to be the TOP 5 aesthetic treatments performed in Malaysia.
Microdermabrasion is a common treatment among the many aesthetic treatments in Malaysia. Is often descript as “sanding” the topmost layer of the skin. It is administered as a procedure for treating uneven skin pigmentation, acne scars, dull skin tone and improving skin texture. The removal of the topmost skin layer makes way for new and smoother skin cells. This treatment is safe, comfortable and does not have any downtime. However, microdermabrasion may result in scarring or unwanted discoloration for individuals who have darker skin. Therefore, it is crucial to allow a well trained and certified medical practitioner to undertake proper skin assessment before going for this treatment.
#4: Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal ranks among the most performed aesthetic procedure in the United State. Likewise, laser hair removal is among the most popular aesthetic treatments in Malaysia. Laser hair removal offers several advantages in comparison to the available conventional techniques. However, it does have its own setbacks and carries potential risks when not performed properly.

This procedure is fairly simple and straightforward but it produces reasonably good results. However, it should be done by a trained medical practitioner to avoid any potential complications. Patients who undergo this treatment will require several days of recovery depending on the depth of the chemical peel performed. Despite this, chemical peels still remain to be a widely sought after aesthetic treatment procedure.

#1: Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®)
