Review: Liposonix and Clear & Brilliant laser at Niks Maple

Feeling really excited when I went down to Niks Maple Laser Clinic at Orchard Central last Tuesday!

I seldom do facial and not to mention laser treatment, so I was really looking forward to it!

Greeted by Niks friendly clinic assistant Ann. Today Dr. Lau will be doing both treatments for me. Clear + Brilliant and Liposonix!

Dr. Lau explained to me the benefits of the treatments, what it does and the downtime for it. Look at how serious I was!

Clear + Brilliant will reduce the appearance of pores (which is perfect for me!) and improve our skin tone and texture. After the treatment, you will have redness on your face which is perfectly normal and will feel a little sandy for the next few days.

(Dr. Lau explaining to me how Liposonix works)

Liposonix is non-surgical and non-invasive so you pretty much dun need to worry about anything. They tried finding fats on my waist and flanks which I do not have enough, and finally we decided on my lower abdomen because it’s quite flabby! Biggest problem on my body is my lower abdomen aside from my legs!

You’re gonna feel some dull aching on the area that is being treated, and depends on individual, you might still ached for the next few days or even bruising. Guess what’s the good news? The targeted fatty cells will be permanently destroyed in 8 – 12 weeks time!

The average waistline reduction after just a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch! Aside from reduction, it helps to tone the flabby area after slimming too!

1 Hour ! 1 Treatment ! and 1 Size smaller!

Preparation for Clear + Brilliant Treatment:

After making sure I’m okay with everything, I then proceed to apply the numbing cream!

After 30mins when the numbing cream kicks in, I can start my treatment woohoo!
Eyes have to be covered because they are delicate!

If you are prone to cold sores or have pimples on your face, do let the doctor know as he will avoid the area. You want to prevent the cold sores from flaring up or pimples from bursting. (which I really think will have a awesome visual effect :X)

Clear + Brilliant treatment starts!

He starts from my chin and gradually moved up to the forehead, chin is more delicate so he will use a lower level intensity. The cheeks and forehead area will undergo a higher intensity.
Redness after is normal.

You won’t feel any pain on your face due to the numbing cream, but you will be able to feel the device sort of rolling and ‘dragging’ across your face in a really mild way. This last for about 10-15minutes and you probably just feel some heat on your face like you’re experiencing sunburnt.

Next I move on to my Liposonix treatment!
Pre-measurement for Liposonix – The clingwrapped me!

Such a close up of my bloated stomach.
Ann taking the measurements of my lower abdomen.
Because I don’t have much fat on my tummy area, Dr. Lau only identified 3 areas on my lower abdomen that needed to be treated.

Result of too much weightloss = STRETCHMARKS!!!
I was really nervous about Liposonix because I’m worried that it will be super painful hahaha. But it turns out pretty bearable. I would rate the pain level as 6/10. Ann sprayed cold water around the area before the treatment and you are going to feel some mild discomfort, typically prickling. If you want to look good, you have to suffer somehow or rather, but you’re not going to cry and kick with Liposonix.

It goes 5 times per area and 1minute each.

After the treatments, and I was given these products to apply for a week!

These are the photos on my face that I took after I reached home, the redness were gone the next day!

After thoughts
Clear + Brilliant:
As expected, my skin feels a little sandy for the next few days, and it’s actually quite hard to put on makeup, but it’s worth it cos.. my skin really looked better now as compared to my schooling period! Woohoo~

Liposonix
I had aching for the next 2days, the pain is like muscle ache after doing a lot of lower abdomen strengthening but it won’t affect your daily activities! Also, I had runny stools for a few days, I guess the fats are really being ‘pushed’ out from my system..
You’re not going to see the results right after the treatment, and this is normal, it’s like you are not going to see a result after you exercise right, so be patient and wait for the results to be shown 8-12weeks later.
And to emphasize, Liposonix is not something that you go for to lose weight, it’s a procedure that you go for to lose the extra inches and achieved your target body shape.
