Everybody wants to have smooth and silky skin. This is the reason why different methods of hair removal exist.
While there may those who don’t have to worry about unwanted hair, a lot of men and women have to deal with a hairy situation. They shave, wax, thread, and pluck in order to remove unsightly facial and body hair.
Some even use a combination of these methods to remove hair on different body parts. But while these are quick and relatively effective ways of removing unwanted hair, they can cause skin irritations and can only produce temporary results. Therefore, skin specialists recommend the use permanent hair removal methods that cause fewer side effects and produce better results.
Luckily for those who still shave, wax, or depilatory creams as part of their beauty routine, hair removal has come a long way. Unwanted hair can now be permanently removed using sophisticated technologies and cutting-edge medical-grade hair removal systems.
Here are 3 effective hair removal Singapore treatments that will leave your skin smooth and stubble-free.
IPL Hair Removal
IPL or intense pulsed light is one of most popular methods for permanently reducing hair in target areas for different skin types.
Available in aesthetic clinics Singapore, IPL – particularly Cutera® Prowave IPL Hair Removal system – works by sending out scattered light that is then absorbed by hair pigments, halting hair follicle growth. A major advantage of this advanced, US-FDA approved IPL hair removal treatment is that each pulse affects hundreds of follicles, making it ideal for the treatment of large areas such as the back and legs.
Patients can expect zero to minimal pain during treatment sessions and may or may not require topical anesthetics or pain medications. To protect treated areas from harmful UVA and UVB rays, patients are recommended to apply sunscreen with broad spectrum such as Dr. Sylvia Skin Care Oil Free Sun Protection SPF 30 at least 30 minutes before sun exposure.
Laser Hair Removal
Considered one of the most effective ways to permanently remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal also delivers light energy to hundreds of follicles in seconds.
In reputable laser clinics Singapore, the preferred laser removal treatment is Cutera CoolGlide hair removal because unlike other laser skin treatments, it is suitable for all skin types, especially darker skin types, and can be used even on tanned areas. It is also proven to be safer and more effective, thanks to its state-of-the-art cooling design and longer wavelength.
Another benefit of laser hair removal Singapore is that it can even out the skin tone as it permanently removes hair. As with other dermatological procedures, sun exposure after the treatment should be limited, therefore, the use of highly concentrated sunscreen such as the Oil Free Sun Protection SPF 30 is recommended.
