Hey-llo Beautiful people, Recently I visited AK clinic for a Laser Photofacial, Don’t fret on the word – Laser. I know, Its kind of over whelming for people who haven’t tried laser ever . And this was my first time too, hence I am confident now that all my doubts are gone.
One – it doesn’t hurt [ A very slight sting] close to nil.
Two – The facial Doesn’t take ages to show results/effects.

My Experience: The first thing that I noticed as I entered the clinic was ” Wow, this is clean!” The clinic is very tidy and hygienic, I loved the ambiance! After some time I was greeted by Dr. Renu, who performed skin analysis and we had a chat about my skin type and her recommendations. Then we moved on to the treatment room, which was again well maintained.
The Procedure: The procedure of the Laser Photofacial begins with Cleansing, this is done to make sure that the skin is clean and free of makeup, dust etc. This step is followed by Icing, this helps in calming the skin. After which laser gel was applied all over the area that is to be covered for laser. Laser shots were given after this step, The frequency of the Laser is personalized according to skin type and other factors. It didn’t hurt, I felt very mild sting once or twice. The doctor was kept checking with me if I was doing alright or if there was any discomfort. The area around eyes is avoided. After the shots, Icing was repeated to cool down the skin. After the laser , A papaya face pack was applied and left for 15-20 mins , which was followed by a face cream with spf.
Results: I could notice immediate results with this facial, my skin looked brighter and healthier. The next day it was a little more healthier looking. Although the results lasted around 4-5 days on me.
Note: IF you want quick results, for weddings, parties, events etc. Ideally visit before a day or two prior to the main event.
Suitable for all skin types.
Recommendation: If you have any important event coming up, or you are looking to try new facials or want to have quick and immediate results. This facial is for you! If you have stubborn marks, or patches you might want to consider a few seating of peels etc / as recommended by the doctor.
