Is Laser Skin Treatment a Good Idea?
Everyone who has tried laser skin treatment never fail to gush about how glowy, smooth and flawless their skin are after the session. But what exactly are laser skin treatments and how true are these claims?
In the beauty world, there are many types of lasers available, each serving a different purpose. The common lasers that most people are familiar with are laser skin treatment for skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal. In this article, we will focus on laser skin treatment.
Laser skin treatments have the ability to treat every skin concern you can think of. From acne scars, hyperpigmentation, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and even sagging skin!
To provide a better idea on what it feels like during the treatment and how to deal with the aftermath, I’ve visited Spacio Clinic and tried out their signature Lavieen BB Laser. Using the latest technology and premium skincare products that cater to different skin types and skin concerns, Spacio Clinic specialises in non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic dermatology and medispa treatments.
The Lavieen BB Laser is a new concept laser treatment that uses the 1927nm Thulium laser conducted by a registered doctor. The treatment aims to improve skin elasticity, minimise hair follicle and wrinkles through treatment of the pigmented skin lesion thus promoting collagen production.
Before the treatment, I was told that I might feel a little pain or stinging sensation but a layer of numbing cream will be applied to minimise the pain. I might also experience some redness on my skin after the treatment, and this is perfectly normal for laser treatments.
During the treatment, the doctor moved a wand-like device over my face and he went for low frequency since it was my first laser experience. To be honest, I don’t feel anything at all. No burning smell nor discomfort. The wand-like device helped to remove the dead skin cells on the top of the skin and this allows regeneration of new skin cells. The laser treatment can also help to tighten the skin.
10 minutes later, I was done! I looked in the mirror and noticed that my skin looked radiant, smooth and clean, like I just had a good exfoliation. 30 minutes later, I noticed a slight pink splotchiness on my cheeks but it wore off after a few hours. I don’t have any blemishes, pigmentations or spots on my skin, so I can’t vouch for the laser’s effectiveness to lighten these marks. However, I do love the after-treatment glow on my skin and my skin still feel smooth after a few days.
Lasers aren’t magic wands that can treat all your skin concern in one go. You may need a few sessions to experience a more obvious difference. Spacio Clinic is offering a special trial price for its Lavieen BB Laser. Instead of $600 for 1 session, you only need to pay $350 (that’s almost half price!). Try it for yourself and you’ll decide its effectiveness.
Spacio Clinic is located at Orchard Xchange, ION Orchard B1-39/40.
