For most, it’s probably the price factor. Many of us are attracted to stuff like buy 6 & get 2 free, or 50% off 1st trial etc. But don’t you think there are more vital factors than just the price tag?
#Aesthetic doctors are supposed to help you to look better & younger. What happens if you end up looking worse than before, or even older? It’s scary just to think about it, isn’t it?
To find your Dr Right, it’s really important to check the doctor’s track record, his skills & credentials. Ask around for recommendation, start from your friends; do your homework!
Even the most experienced & qualified doctor may not be the #DrRight for you. You need to establish a rapport with the doctor & make sure you’re comfortable with him. It’s crucial to find Dr Right!
Dual Yellow Light Laser at EPW Laser + Medical Aesthetics Clinic to treat my #pigmentation. Following that, I’ve been diligently going for my treatments every three weeks, & then monthly. I’ve already gone for 4 sessions & will continue to do so on a monthly basis until all those ugly spots are cleared. Here’s an update on my progress with this Dual Yellow Light Laser treatment.
As mentioned in my last post, the #DualYellowLight Laser is a non-ablative laser widely considered to be the most effective procedure for epidermal melasma, rosacea & fine capillaries. A series of weekly treatments will also rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen production to improve the skin texture, reduce fine lines, & even out the skin colour.
I was really worried the first time my face peeled as I’d an event to attend in just a week; I needed to recover fast. For the past weeks, my skin would peel for a few days after my procedure following the Epiderma products that I’d apply. Depending on individual, the extent of the skin peeling differs.
So I juggled & played with the timing. I would use the clinic’s products obediently & let my face peel, & stopped few days just before any events etc. So far, I’ve managed it pretty well.
Now, you may wonder why use the Dual Yellow Light Laser costing SGD 1,500 a session instead of the Nd:YAG Laser which is just few hundred dollars to treat my #melasma.
Well, the main difference between the Dual Yellow Light Laser & Nd:YAG Laser and is that the former has been designed to treat epidermal melasma, while the #NdYAG laser is best for treating dermal (deep) pigmentation.
Dual Yellow Light is absorbed by the hemoglobin better than other colours, hence it’s the most effective laser to treat conditions with increased vascularity such as melasma, rosacea, & fine capillaries.
Using the Nd:YAG Laser to treat epidermal melasma is not recommended as there is a high incidence of prolonged hyperpigmentation, & hypopigmentation. Hence, the Dual Yellow Light Laser is the recommended choice for me.
Results will vary depending on the density of the melasma, & individual patient response to the treatment. I'll be continuing with my treatments; waiting patiently for a spotless me!
