We are having several visits by prominent beauty bloggers this week at Premier Clinic, Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Emily was keen to remove her underarm hair permanently. She was attended by our Premier Clinic aesthetic doctor, Dr Kee Yong Seng, who performed the Candela GentleYAG laser for her.
The Candela GentleYAG permanent hair removal procedure involves firing painless shots of laser beams over the treated area. The laser comes with a coolant which emits a cooling spray, thus diminishing any discomfort.
Commonly treated areas for permanent hair removal include underarms, bikini area, legs and arms. Ladies may opt for hair removal above the upper lip and some men remove the hair on their chest or back. Each session of permanent hair removal takes less than 5 minutes for small areas. Large areas such as the legs would require more time. More than 1 session would be needed as hair grows in different stages. A session once every month would give the best results. Up to 10 sessions may be needed for optimal results.
The advantage of the Candela GentleYAG laser procedure is that it is much faster compared to other methods such as electrolysis. It is also more effective and less painful compared to Intense Pulse Light (IPL). There is no downtime and the client can go back to work or exercise right after the Candela GentleYAG permanent hair removal laser.
