While IPL hair removal is widely available, it is not suitable for dark Asian skin due to the risk of skin burns at standard treatment doses and poor efficacy at safer low doses. Skin burns lead to prolonged and unsightly post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It is effective in fair to medium skin and may be performed by our trained nurses under the supervision of our skin doctor for the budget-conscious.
The long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser (GentleYAG™/ GentleMax Pro™) is the gold standard for safe and effective laser hair removal in dark Asian skin. Together with the unique patented skin cooling anaesthesia which protects the skin while reducing discomfort, large spot size and fast repetitions, our laser hair removal treatments are a breeze. No more messy gels and cream anaesthesia!
For lighter skin, our long-pulsed Alexandrite laser (GentleLase™ / GentleMax Pro™) hair removal system is fast, painless and effective. The unique patented skin cooling anaesthesia ensures that there is minimal discomfort during treatment while allowing high effective doses.
