A couple of weeks ago I went for a consultation and patch test at Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre in Ta’ Xbiex to try out laser hair removal.
I had done laser several years ago for my under arm and bikini line at another clinic, so I had a fairly good idea of what to expect.
When I arrived I was welcomed and asked to fill out the consultation forms, it’s really important to understand the medical history of each and every client. I loved how clean and bright the waiting room is, and how friendly the staff are.
I didn’t need to wait long before I was shown into the treatment room, I met a super smiley doctor who spent some time explaining to me about the treatment, the machine they use and how its different from whats on the market.
The laser machine they use is called “CynoSure”, the frequency of the laser used depends on many factors like your skins sensitivity, the hair type and the pigment of both the hair and skin. So each treatment will differ slightly, also because of personal pain tolerance. So the Dr would chose whats right for you based on their in depth experience and the reaction of your skin.
When I had done laser in the past I treated my underarms and bikini line, personally my underarms didn’t hurt much, but my bikini line was much more sensitive. Which was one of the things that I discussed before my patch test. My Dr explained that the “CynoSure” machine uses a targeted cooling air spray, this reduces the heat given off by the laser and makes the treatment much more comfortable. The air jet really is quite cool! I didn’t feel a thing. Next treatment I will make sure to book in for my bikini line!
One of the reasons that I waited a few weeks to write about my experience is because I wanted to see how my hair was on the regrowth. When I had previously done laser it left me with a couple non-pigmented hairs (aka grey) on one underarm. So currently I have no hair apart from those two grey offenders in that tested area. After about 2 weeks I had some small hairs pushed out of the skin, but other than that the area is clean. I would need to repeat the treatment roughly 6 weeks apart to get maximum results. Since my hair is quite pigmented and my skin fair I am an excellent laser candidate so I should have very good results, without needing many sessions.
I love that the treatments are booked by Drs, it gives me more peace of mind. I know that they have knowledge and my skins health as number one priority.
Persona has quite an impressive treatment portfolio! They have some interesting treatments too, they not only remove hair but they can transplant it too. Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre also offers hair transplants with a Dr who flys in regularly to perform the treatment for men and women. They are also one of the only clinics (If not the only one) in Malta to offer eyebrow transplants.
This I had to get more information about. There is a big part of me tempted to book in for treatment since my brows are sparse and I am always penciling them in. At least this would be the solution I’ve been waiting for, although costly (It is a surgery after all) in the long run its much cheaper than a tattoo and requires no yearly retouching. hallelujah.
Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre also offers: smart lipo & tummy tucks (also something I want to do), as well as breast augmentation, face lifts, botox, lip enhancements, and vein therapy. They have a dermatology department, as well as a GU clinic.
I was lucky I got to take a sneak peak into the Operating Theater!!!! how cool is that? So obviously I had to take photos
Medical tourism is on the rise and Malta is one of the IT places to go for a treatment, the Drs are experts and their fields and the prices are very competitive. I know quite a few girls who have flown in for a boob or nose job. They offer packages with hotels, making it stress free to combine a treatment and a holiday.
They also offer a recovery room so that after surgery you can take your time before leaving. Its refreshing to know that after a treatment you have time to rest and recover in your own time, even over night if needed.
