DR LAZWANI K, AESTHETIC DOCTOR FROM THE DRX CLINIC TELLS US MORE ABOUT THE TREATMENT.
How do I prepare for a treatment? “You’ll be assessed by a doctor for suitability of the treatment and for any contraindication. After the consent form is signed, the nurse will prepare the patient for the treatment. The treatment area will be cleansed and photos will be taken. Skin markings will be done and coupling fluid will be applied before the start of the procedure. The treatment will then be performed by the doctor.”
If I don’t feel any pain or heat, is the treatment working?
“Heat is absolutely essential to tighten the collagen and stimulate new collagen growth. If you don’t feel any heat, the settings might be too low for the treatment. A suitable tolerable heat level is necessary to minimise discomfort and achieve optimal results.”
Why does it take so long to see the results?
“The new collagen growth is a progressive and a gradual process, hence it takes a maximum of six months to see optimal results.”
What kind of aftercare should I be doing? “That’s the beauty of this treatment; there’s neither a specific aftercare nor downtime. Generally, patients are advised to lead a healthy lifestyle after their treatment for long-lasting results.” Tred, tested and approved!
“I always feel queasy in a doctor’s room and although it had a facial-like setting, I was very much scared for the pain that I had to endure. First, numbing cream was slathered all over my tummy an hour prior to the treatment and wrapped with cling wrap. Afterwards, a temporary grid is applied onto the skin using a pre-drawn sheet that’s sort of like a temporary tattoo. At the beginning of the treatment, Dr. Lazwani did a pulse test to check if the heat is acceptable on a scale from one to seven and I settled for level three, which was hot but tolerable. Then, using the grid as a guide, she placed the heated device tip according to the boxes. Aside from a few fleeting moments of pain on bony areas such as my hip bone, the treatment was surprisingly bearable. It’s been three months now and my red stretch marks have turned to white while I’ve trimmed a few centimetres off my body. I can’t wait to see what the remaining three months will bring!”
