Maple Clinic Publika QRST Laser Treatment Review [2024]

Maple Clinic @ Menara 1 Dutamas (within Publika)

Turning into my thirties, I never thought that skin health is necessary when it comes to maintenance. I do not have really big concerns, but of course, I would definitely want to sustain my youth where possible. Today I'll be sharing with you about my visit to Maple Clinic in Publika which I recently visited and the reason to why im writing about it is because the services that they offer is beyond expectation. I was looking for a quick solution that solves not just one concern, but more of an overall combo that would target a majority of my concerns at one go. And here is where I met Dr. Aren.

I was served with tea while waiting

Meet Dr. Aren

On a first impression, Dr. Aren was actually very welcoming and I could tell from my first time meeting him that he is very passionate in his work. Pursuing to Master Dermatology and Aesthetics, Dr. Aren decided to further pursue his interests in these fields. In 2016, he obtained his Medical Aesthetic Certificate (MAC), specializing in dermatological and aesthetic procedures. This additional training allowed him to expand his expertise and provide comprehensive care to his patients.

Very detailed in explaining the skin layers to me & why problems arises

Dr. Aren’s dedication to his profession is evident through his continuous pursuit of knowledge and certification. Based on my personal experience, I would have to say that the impact that I knew that Dr Aren has went through extensive training in various aesthetic medical procedures, I can say that I know my skin is safe in his hands. In terms of trust, he definitely won mine effortlessly as he shared about his passion to embrace better improvement for the skin, just because. 


Now, the scarier part comes in when he highlighted about the procedure he recommended to do, which was the QRST treatment, which is the Quadra-Rejuvenation Skin Therapy that offers 4 advance modals to rejuvenate the skin. Hearing about this was really new to me as it combines different treatments all at one go! For those who are always running around the clock, this would be the perfect treatment to consider as it addresses skin concerns, strengthen the skin barrier, reduces chronic inflammation, and of course provide long lasting results.

The Sylfirm X machine

The PicoSecond Laser and Aerolase Neo Elite

This treatment would involve 4 devices that I would say cost a whole lot of money, which includes the Styfirm X; focusing to repair and restore, then the picosecond laser ; to improve skin texture and skin tone,  followed by the Aerolase Neo Elite ; to reduce inflammation and destruct abnormal blood vessels, and ending it with the polycleotide skin booster ; which repairs DNA, promotes cellular regeneration and revitalise skin microenvironment. With that being said, would you believe it when I say that you can solve so much concerns all at one go, which would only take you about an hour of treatment?

Too good to be true, I was actually impressed by the services provided by Mable Clinic. Definitely something very different that the other aesthetic clinics that I've been to. Dr Aren did elaborate the whole procedure and he did warn me that the skin booster treatment would involve needles and would be the most painful out of it all. I have to admit that im afraid of needles, but Dr Aren reassured me that he will be very fast during that procedure to reduce the pain period for me, which I thought was very considerate of him to be very honest pre-treatment. 


Very clinical and clean

Applied numbing cream

Jumping into the treatment room, I admire that it had very clean aesthetics, and behold, I saw all the machineries all in one room. Starting off with numbing cream, we had to leave it on for about 30 minutes to get the effects going, which led us to the Sylfirm X to repair and restore. I was a little surprised that this involved micro needles upclose but since this was the first treatment right after the numbing cream, it was barely painful. I would give it a 2 out of 10 on pain scale. Dr Aren then proceeded with the Aerolase Neo Elite which helped to reduce inflammation. Overall I would say that this had a laser feel over the skin, but still pain wise very bearable. Then this brings to us the Picosecond Laser which was no stranger to me. Typically it felt like a light burning sensation which targets pigments and darks spots, and honestly still not too bad despite the numbing cream effect was starting to fade.

Followed by the Pico Laser and Polynucleotides Skin Booster Injection

Now, the last step was the Polynucleotides Skin Booster which was basically the needle injection over your skin. I told Dr Aren to not show me the needle cause my fear to it was rather real. Kept my eyes closed throughout the whole time, and I would definitely agree with Dr Aren that this was the most painful procedure compared to everything else. Considering the numbing effect started to fade, all I can say is that the pain was twitching on a scale of 6-7 out of 10. Still not too extreme, but I appreciate that Dr Aren knew that I was in pain half way, and he speeded up the process to make it real quick. After all, beauty does require slight pain am I right?


Right after the treatment was over. I was shocked with all the bumps

But 10 minutes later, the bumps slowly subsided

The whole process took about 60-90 minutes which I would say is rather quick. It's definitely a suitable treatment for those who are looking for something fast, yet effective in the long run. In terms of the down time, Dr Aren mentioned that it would be roughly 3 days. But to me, I would say that its about 3-4 hours visibly. After the injections, it did leave uneven bumps due to the booster essence, but as time passed by, my skin did appear a fairer with slight burn marks due to the laser within the same day. But it slowly subsided to be less obvious within 3-4 hours. The session ended at about 3pm, and by 7pm, the marks were barely noticeable. 

The moment I got into the car, not too bad in appearance

I actually had a meeting right after the treatment which I rushed for, and to my surprise, I got complimented that my skin looks glowy. I was actually really thankful that no one noticed the small bumps on my skin, but really, I think the instant glowing effect was definitely obvious. My skin did feel a little more sensitive towards sunlight, but Dr Aren did mention to avoid the sun for the next 1 week when possible to encourage better recovery. 


Post 1 week treatment. Skin seemed smoother but dry and reduced redness

As a verdict of my experience, I can say that the whole treatment did give me better skin, and may I proudly say does miracles. My concerns highlight more towards, acne marks, pigmentations, uneven skin tone, and aging, but after the treatment, the results were beyond my expectation. My acne marks and pigmentation definitely reduced significantly and my skin post 1 week looks sooo much healthier than before. I now have smoother skin with less bumps, lighten marks and pigmentations, reduced redness and less congested pores! Im pretty happy with the outcome and this definitely beats any aesthetic clinics that I've been to for its combination therapy that not only focuses on multiple concerns, but also giving you long lasting results. 

A month later, my skin was glowing. Bare in mind, this was very minimal make up, and I was only wearing blusher

Moving forward to a month post treatment, I can say that my skin still looks amazing just how it appeared after the treatment. Of course, to maintain good skin, I was also very diligent in ensuring that my skincare routine was well taken care of at home without skipping any sunscreen to optimise and prolong my skin improvement. Would I recommend you to seek of skin consultation at Maple Clinic? Without a doubt, it's a big fat YES! I love that there was no hard sell, their fees were very transparent and honest, and most importantly these are handled by trained experienced doctors to really focus on solving your skin concerns. The QRST treatment only requires 3-6months gap for maintenance if preferred, and the rest assured promising you results of improvement. 

Be sure to say hi to Dr Aren!

Well, I hope you found my write up useful, and I'll be very honest that this is an honest review that no one told me to write. From the experience to the results, im genuinely happy with the outcome. If I knew about their services sooner, I would have just ran to Maple Clinic instead of browsing through other clinics. Maple Clinic is located in Publika and for those planning to visit, they have a special car park for you to park at, right in front of the clinic. But really, they offer one of the best treatment that compliments really well with their hospitality. Will definitely come back here again and recommend you to visit Maple Clinic to seek for professional solutions to give your skin better life.
