What is laser
Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses lasers to target the roots of hair beneath the surface of the skin. Majority of the hairs are taken care of permanently while regrowth is finer and lighter than previously.
Laser hair removal can:
Target and remove hair quickly and precisely
Remove hair on different areas on the face and body
Eliminate prickly hair regrowth caused by shaving
Reduce in-grown hair
Remove hair for the long term
The Long Pulsed Nd:Yag is used to precisely and effectively remove individual hair. It removes and minimises unwanted hair by using pulses of laser light to inactivate the hair follicle. The laser hair removal treatment in Singapore can only be conducted by a doctor.
How many sessions
do I need?
Because hair grows in cycles and not all body hair is in the same stages at a time, it takes a few treatments for complete removal. The outcome also depends on hair quality, number of hair follicles, different metabolism and hormonal level of each individual. Hence a maintenance visit of once every two months is recommended.
