Beauty experts advise that to stay lovely, the most important task is to take care of the skin, to make it clear and silky smooth. That means the need to remove unwanted hair has also become a necessity and a priority. While most women go for natural ways like plucking, shaving, and waxing, some prefer aesthetic procedures to get rid of the unwanted hair.
Many aesthetic clinics in Malaysia have come up with the latest hair removal treatments and technologies that solve this beauty dilemma. Here are the top 3 hair removal procedures you might want to consider:
- Laser Technology
The most popular permanent facial hair removal procedure is the laser treatment. This method uses concentrated light pulses to destroy hair follicles and to prevent them to regrow. The benefit is that the laser doesn’t damage the surrounding tissues of the skin.
You can also do this from the comfort of your own home using the practical, lightweight laser machines available online. However, nothing beats the indulgence in getting treatment from a professional aesthetician. Plus, going to a professional clinic guarantees a precise and effective procedure.
The exact wavelength of light pulses targeting your hair follicles will depend on the type and colour of your hair and skin. Most experts believe that this is the most effective hair reduction treatment, which requires 6-12 sessions to see the results you want. The typical cost of a laser hair removal treatment in Malaysia ranges from RM275-RM425 depending on the body area.
- Intense Pulsed Light or IPL
Unlike the laser technology which has a specific target for its emitted wavelength, the IPL method releases a broad wavelength just like a simple light bulb. IPL is recommended for patients with lighter types of skin with darker hair colour. However, it tends to be less efficient than the laser treatment because the pulses can’t penetrate through the deeper layers of the skin.
Likewise, it also exposes the surrounding tissues to the wavelengths, which in turn causes them to be damaged and burned. IPL machines usually come with a large hand piece that makes the treatment faster than other laser treatments. It is cheaper than ordinary laser treatments and usually costs around RM170 based on the area.
- Sumuzu Hair Removal Treatment
International TV reporter Carol Malasig shared this breakthrough on her blog AlmostDiplomatic.com, in which she highly recommended this hair removal procedure. Compared to an ordinary IPL treatment for the underarms, for example, the Sumuzu Hair Removal Treatment just takes 5 minutes for both underarms.
Using the Koolite machine, it also emits light pulses similar to an IPL machine, but patients need not wear eyeglasses to shield against the emitted wavelengths. Carol also mentions that it is less painful compared to the IPL treatment. It also gives additional benefits like whitens and tightens the skin, and removes odour.
In fact, patients should expect noticeable results and reduced hair growth with just three sessions of the Sumuzu treatment. Underarms with some visible pores caused by shaving will become smaller, lines lighter, and sweating reduced. The Sumuzu Hair Removal Treatment may be a bit costly at RM300 per session for underarms and RM590 per session for full legs.
If you’re done with waxing, shaving, or tweezing, then it’s high time for you to switch to these high-tech treatments. With technology, you can say good bye to unwanted hair forever! If you’re interested in getting one of these procedures, contact a trusted and reliable clinic.
