    Laser Hair Removal: Safe & Permanent Result

    Laser Hair Removal in Malaysia

    Laser hair removal is popular with those who want a quick and more permanent solution than other methods, e.g. waxing, threading, shaving and tweezing. Lasers remove hair by stopping the hair follicles from growing new hairs.

    At O2 Klinik, the light of a laser is sent through the pigment in the hair. This converts to heat, which damages the hair follicle and hair bulb. Laser can actually help with irritating ingrown hairs, by encouraging hair to grow straight. The laser, which is a long pulsed ND YAG laser, is safe for treating pigmented or darker skin tones. However, it’s not effective for white/blonde hair.

    There are several benefits of laser hair removal:

    – Long-Lasting Results: Laser hair removal targets hair follicles at the root, leading to long-lasting reduction in hair growth.

    – Precision: Targeting of specific hair follicles without causing damage to the surrounding skin, beneficial for treating larger areas like the legs, back, or chest

    – Speed: Treat multiple hair follicles simultaneously

    – Less Discomfort: Equipped with cooling mechanisms that help minimize discomfort during treatment

    – Predictability: More predictable and consistent results

    – Reduced Ingrown Hairs

    Q: Why should I get laser hair removal?
    Some people find waxing too painful to do and laser gives more permanent result than shaving. Besides, it help to reduce ingrown hair and will not cause hyperpigmentation that usually happens after shaving.

    Q: When can I see the result?
    A: It takes two or three weeks after first treatment to see a difference, and 8 -12 treatments to get the full result.

    Q: Is the procedure painful?
    Minimal pain may be experienced which is usually well tolerated.
    It is recommended to use a hair trimmer/shave the area before laser as the laser can react with hair on the skin’s surface which will cause some irritation and maybe dreaded burnt hair smell.

    Q: Which body areas are treatable with this laser?
    At O2 Klinik, common areas to treat are legs, arms, underarms, bikini/brazilian, or chest. You can schedule an appointment to get a more detailed consultation based on your needs.

    Q: What are the do’s and don’ts if I want to try laser hair removal?
    If you’re considering laser hair removal, there are certain do’s and don’ts to keep in mind to ensure a safe and effective treatment. Here are some general guidelines.

    Do’s:
    -Avoid sun exposure or tanning beds for several weeks before the treatment, as laser hair removal is most effective on untanned skin.
    -Shave the area to be treated a day or two before the session. This ensures that the laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicles rather than the hair on the surface.
    -Inform Your Practitioner It is also impotany to inform your practitioner about any changes in your health, medications, or skincare routine between sessions.
    -Adhere to any specific pre-treatment instructions provided by your practitioner, such as avoiding certain skincare products or medications.

    Don’ts:
    -Don’t do waxing, plucking, or using hair removal creams in the weeks leading up to your laser hair removal session.
    -Don’t skip sunscreen on the treated area, even if it’s not directly exposed to the sun.
    -Don’t use skincare products containing retinoids or acids on the treated area before and after the session, as they can increase skin sensitivity.
    -Don’t do intense physical activity, hot baths, or saunas immediately after the treatment to minimize irritation.

    Q: Any downtime?
    Minimal downtime with skin redness which will last for only 1 day.
