Just one week before Chinese New Year, I managed to get a slot for Pico Sure laser recommended by IDS for my sunspots and also for tightening my pores.
Preparation Room for numbing cream
Application of numbing cream
After consultation, I was led into a preparation room for application of numbing cream. About 20 mins later, I was led into the laser room to start my treatment.
Immediately after I laid down, they could sense that I was very nervous and reassured me that I would not feel too uncomfortable.
True enough, the Pico Laser was almost painless through her gentle hand motions. Except for sensitive areas like my cheekbones, I would say the pain level is at most 2/10. Considering that I have a low threshold for pain, this treatment could be 0 pain for many. The sensation is very much like rubber tapping on your face in hyper fast motions, with higher concentrations on target areas.
The entire process took less than 20 mins and I had to laugh at myself for being nervous for nothing!
A cooling serum was applied to soothe redness and small bumps from my sensitive skin. I was then led back to the preparation area for the soothing light mask.
15 mins later, there was much less redness and I was ready to go. Consultant Cassandra told me it might take 1 to 2 days for any sensitivities to clear and it took mine about 2 to 3 days.
I had a few small bumps around the target areas in the cheeks and it faded after 3 days.
A week later, I could notice a smoother touch and appearance on my cheeks and I noticed that my makeup glided on nicely compared to before.
For those looking for a quick treatment with little to no down time, this is the go-to laser!
Thankful to get the opportunity to review this treatment and I am convinced to sign a full course with IDS.
