I naturally have some light freckles, but after two pregnancies, those spots just grew and got a lot darker. I had my first laser done about three years back using MedLite at a local aesthetic clinic. After the third sessions (5 sessions in my package), my spots were virtually vanquished. The result was unexpectedly good, despite the slight discomfort during the process, which was tolerable for me.
After my last laser treatment two and half years ago, my skin remains relatively good except the freckles seem to be creeping back, probably because I go under the sun more often now (chasing after my kids).
Friends told me about a promotion at PPP Laser Clinic, where I only need to pay a fraction of the price I did with MedLite, to receive 25 times of laser treatments. I jumped at the chance, I thought I had discovered a GREAT buy. PPP Laser claims that it works for Pores, Pigmentations and Pimples. I had two out of the three concerns I want to see improvement for, I was really excited.
Twelve times of laser treatments later, the only difference I notice is my facial hairs - they are absolutely bleached; the spots and pores are, unfortunately, still here. Although a few people had commented that my skin looks more radiant, that might well be the work of the new SK-II LXP Perfecting Series that I had recently started using, instead of the benefit of the laser.
What leaves me flabbergasted is the service and their system, or should I say lack of it. When I just signed up for the package, I was told I could call and make appointment, so I did. Even with appointments, at times, I had to wait a freaking 30-mins before I was being attended to. Then low and behold, they changed it to NO APPOINTMENT, only walk-in. When you walk-in, there could be 20 or more people ahead of you and you might have to wait for over 2 hours, at the more popular outlets. All that waiting for just for a 2-mins laser treatment, I think it's insane! And that's not the worst, the treatment time also shrunk, instead of 2-mins, it is probably now, nothing more than a minute! I guess the doctors just can't wait to get us out of the clinic to ease the crowd.
And it's not just one outlet of PPP Laser Clinic that is disappointing, I have visited 4 different outlets and every outlet is the same; long waiting time, hasten laser process and insignificant results.
Whenever I mentioned about not seeing much improvement, the doctors would advise me to have patience and wait, or come for the treatment more often. And when I grumble about the long waiting time, the nurses would tell me, "Wait. Take a seat first."
I think PPP Laser should change its name to WWW Laser, because all I ever do is wait, wait and more wait!
