LASER TREATMENT- My Experience
This is what is expeted out of the serial laser treatments.
I had gone for a laser treatment using the SPECTRA VRIII yesterday in Bandar Puteri, Puchong. I came across the offer Groupon whch was going for 75% off, and decided to order for it. It is claimed to reduce oily skin, shrink the pores and lighten the scarring.
When I first got there, the assistant made me register my details. Then I was asked to see the doctor, which was never mentioned in the Groupon. I never intended to meet an aesthetician. If I ever wanted to see a doctor, I would straight away see a dermatologist.
To those of you are wondering, what is the difference between the both of them- here it is.
A dermatologist is a doctor who went through a basic MBBS ( medical degree), went through MRCP ( General Medicine Specialty), and then subspecialised in Dermatology
An aesthetician is a doctor with an MBBS degree and then took further diplomas to call themselves aestheticians.
So actually, a dermatologist is a more qualified person.
After the consultation, ( which also included marketing of her own products), I was escorted to a room, where the laser machine was. The assistant (A) laid me down, cleaned my face and applied topical local anaesthetic . About 20 minutes, later they applied a carbon layer, and then started shooting
It was not that painful, no after effects of hyperpigmentation or redness.
I was shocked to see myself in the mirror. I was expecting redness surrounding the area, hyperpigmentation.
Very happy with the after effects. My next treatment is in a month's time. My last round of laser.
