Introducing… Our Jeisys Tri-Beam Qswitch Laser machine!

There are tons of Qswitch Laser machines in the market, so why did our doctors specifically handpick the Jeisys Tri-Beam machine? Hyperpigmentation on the armpit, hyperpigmentation on the back, hyperpigmentation on the buttocks or even hyperpigmentation anywhere on the body? We’re able to treat all of these areas!

The Jeisys Tri-Beam Qswitch Laser is used to remove unwanted Hyperpigmentation on the armpit, hyperpigmentation on the back, hyperpigmentation on the buttocks and even hyperpigmentation anywhere on the body!

It generates a laser pulse at the specific 1064nm wavelength on the targeted areas. The hyperpigmentation is broken down into tiny fragments which are eventually cleared away by the body naturally.

  • Safety: This machine is Korean-FDA (Food & Drugs Administration) and Health & Sciences Authority (Singapore) approved.
  • No Downtime: You can return straight back to your normal daily activities after each procedure.
  • Painless: No numbing cream is needed. During the procedure, you’ll only feel a “tingling” sensation.
  • More importantly, it’s efficacy (aka results): The Jeisys Tri-Beam has the most important function to enable the laser to be tweaked to the 1064nm wavelength which is especially effective in removing Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation! The 1065nm wavelength is more effective & it can penetrate into your skin and thus, effectively target dermal pigmented lesions which are deeper.
