Permanent Hair Removal
A more permanent way of getting rid of unwanted facial and body hair once and for all is with laser or intense pulsed light technology. The focused energy emitted from such devices is absorbed by the melanin within the hair gland and leads to the destruction of the treated hair follicles, leaving surrounding skin unaffected during the procedure. A savvy beauty investment with long lasting returns, Laser Hair Removal significantly reduces hair growth with repeated sessions done consistently at regular intervals.
At Freia Medical, we engaged the Lutronic CLARTY laser platform to tackle all hairy woes, a trusted system that provides permanent hair reduction in patients of all skin type and hair color. With the right settings carefully selected to meet the needs of different individuals, both lighter and darker skin types and hair can be treated safely and effectively. A dual wavelength laser platform that combines one of the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy and outstanding performance, it is above all safe, with high patient satisfaction rate. Clarity Laser Hair Removal eliminates the problems of repeated trauma and skin irritation associated with traditional epilation methods such as constant shaving and waxing, saving one from ingrown hairs and skin darkening. Depending on the density, thickness and color of the hair, it takes between 4 to 6 sessions done at 4 to 6 weekly intervals for more than 90% clearance of unwanted hair.
Is Laser hair removal painful?
Our hair reduction treatment is generally quite comfortable. Numbing cream is first applied and left on the treatment area for 10 to 15 mins. During treatment, a stream of cool air from the Zimmer Cooler is constantly applied. What you will experience next is described as a tolerable and light snap of a rubber band against cooled skin. Based on your response, the doctor can adjust the energy levels accordingly to make the procedure more tolerable.
What can I expect after each treatment session?
You will notice reduced hair growth. However, as hairs grow in crops and at different cycles, it will take repeat sessions to effectively bring the hair growth under control. You will need between 4 to 6 sessions, depending on the skin type, hair density, thickness etc. Individual results may vary.
What are the popular areas that are treated for hair removal?
Almost any part of the body can be treated. The most popular areas include • underarms• forearms and back of hands • lower legs, thighs and toes • facial hair including upper lip hair and beards • chest, back, tummy • brazilian, bikini, boyzilian • buttocks
Are the results permanent?
Laser hair reduction will permanently reduce the hair load and density upon completion of the individualized treatment program based on our doctor’s assessment. However, fine regrowth may occur after a few years, due largely to hormonal stimulation. At that point, our patients may choose to return for touch up or maintenance sessions.
Can I return to my regular activities right away?
There is no down time associated with Laser Hair Removal. There may be slight redness post-treatment, but this will subside within hours. We advise patients to use good quality sunscreens and avoid excessive sun exposure to the treated area for 3 days post-treatment.
I have a darker Fitzpatrick skin type 5. Am I suitable for this treatment?
The Lutronic CLARITY laser system is designed for all skin types, including darker skinned individuals. On the other extreme, it can be calibrated to treat unwanted blonde hair in light skinned patients effectively and safely.
