“Are you okay? You look like you haven’t gotten any sleep for ages.”
Being asked that, you suddenly feel like the whole world cares. You are on the top of the world right now.
But wait, you actually look like you haven’t slept for ages! After processing and digesting the question, this hits you like a sledgehammer and you start to question yourself: Do I really look like a mess right now?
Once you get home, you rush to the nearest mirror just to realise that you look like you haven’t gotten any sleep for a long time. You start to wonder when did your life start to go wrong that has made you look like one of the characters from The Walking Dead, yes, you look like a walking zombie. I bet everyone has gone through the same phase, especially the zombie-looking part, am I right?
Today, I am going to share with you guys the solution for acne scars and dull and pigmented skin. Have you ever heard of pulsed wave treatment? If not, I am thrilled to tell you guys about it. First and foremost, I would like to share what AFT technology is. AFT is a short for Advance Fluorescent Technology. The high-power light energy from the device helps to shatter the pigment underneath our skin into smaller particles for our body to absorb more easily. Other than that, it is also used to stimulate the collagen inside our body.
The next technology I would like to share with you is called PicoWave. Regular machines apply nanosecond technology but not PicoWave. PicoWave utilizes picosecond (1000 times faster than nanoseconds) pulses to shatter stubborn pigmentations, reduce scars appearances, and reduce pimples production at 1000 times the speed of other traditional devices in the market. It is advised for you to undergo PicoWave treatment if you would like to reduce pimples, scars, and pigmentation.
How many sessions should you go through in order to achieve your desired result? Usually, you can see the difference after one session but in order to obtain a more effective result, four to five sessions are recommended. Patience and consistency are the key to everything. Not every problem can be solved in one sitting. If you have a problem with a friend, then it is understandable if you could solve the problem very quickly, however if you have a problem with your body, it will take some time to solve it since it cannot voice its concern to you in a clear manner! So, you have to figure out the problem on your own and it takes some time to recognize how your skin works.
To see what’s really good for your body, you need to try out different treatments until you find the right one for your skin. It is like searching for the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle. After the treatment, you will need to put on moisturizer because your skin will become quite dry after the treatment. If you do not put on moisturizer right after the treatment, your skin will worsen. That’s why skincare is imperative to having pleasant-looking skin.
You might be asking, ‘Is the treatment painful?’ Well, it will only feel like you just got bit by an ant. To allow for better treatment, our therapists will apply a layer of cooling gel before the treatment to let the light energy be absorbed better in your skin. Meanwhile, it also effectively reduces the heat you feel during the treatment, hence, less painful than being bitten by an ant! Since some treatments take longer than usual to complete, some people just sit back, relax and fall asleep during the treatment which shows that the treatment is definitely painless.
You might also be asking, ‘Is there any downtime?’ No. It doesn’t matter if it is AFT treatment or pulsed wave treatment, you will experience zero post treatment effect. You can literally walk out of the treatment room with total confidence! However, for some people whose skin is rather sensitive, there is a slight chance that they could potentially experience some redness on their skin. However, this can be gone in just a few minutes. Just imagine, you are holding an ice cube in your palm and once it melts, your palm will become red for some time. Well, that is the estimated downtime for the treatment. It is also suggested for you to only wear make-up 24 hours after the treatment, just to give your skin a little rest from any possible irritants.
Once your sessions are done, you can now enjoy your day with your healthy and glowing skin and go about it with confidence.
Oh, and don’t forget to apply moisturizer and sunscreen daily!
