But there are still some who are afraid to try this one face treatment especially for laser treatment for acne. Plus see the shape of the device that produces light and deliver the effect of heat on the skin.
But this discomfort does not last long. Once the laser treatment starts, in seconds, fear will disappear. It turns out that laser faces aren’t as scary as the name suggests.
Visiting a beauty clinic in near me, this is the second my experience doing laser faces. In this second treatment, the condition of facial skin is slightly more complex. The type of oily-combination skin and there are zits on several points of the face, such as on the right cheek and in the area of the skin around the nose and mouth.
The condition of the zits also varies from those that are still active, only appearing, to leaving black marks. Then, what are the important steps to be taken to maximize this laser face work?
Facial skin is required to get a diagnosis by a specialist. This diagnosis aims to see the overall skin condition. Doctors will also study the types of pimples that appear on our faces, – whether due to genetic factors, dust and pollution, improper skincare, or from an unhealthy lifestyle.
Accompanied by a therapist, the skin that has been checked by a doctor, is cleaned using a double cleanser method.
Skin that is already clean, ready to come into contact with a laser beam. Before the laser face starts, both eyes will be covered by a special eye patch. This eye protection device is used to prevent direct exposure of the laser beam.
Face laser starts. For this stage, the doctor will do a ray test first. There are levels of heat from low, medium and high. Heat levels will be adjusted to our desires and how strong or not the facial skin responds to the heat rays from the laser. However, the hotter the level chosen, the better the result for facial skin. Especially for lightening facial skin. Well, when the laser face has begun to work on the skin, we will feel a painful sensation, but it doesn’t hurt. Precisely, the skin feels like it gets a spark of fireworks.
For one treatment, how long will it take?
Return to the skin condition found after diagnosis. For the Skinthestic clinic, the time needed ranges from 40-60 minutes with 5 laser stages for one treatment.

What about the condition of acne that is still active, is the laser helpful enough to treat?
Perfect results certainly don’t look as soon as we finish doing the laser. Paying attention to the condition of zits on the next day, active zits are immediately deflated.
