Laser Hair Removal Overview

How Do Medical Grade Laser Hair Removal Treatments Work?

Laser beams target and destroy the hair follicles under the skin without causing damage or trauma to the surrounding skin. Only the latest generation of medical-grade lasers can do this safely and effectively.

Why Choose MedAesthetics?

At MedAesthetics, we use only the latest, medical-grade laser platforms to perform all laser hair removal treatments.

Our Laser Hair Removal Platforms:

Lumenis Lightsheer™Diode Lasers. The Diode laser has a wavelength of 800 nm – 850, which is considered the best in its class to target all hair follicles.

Lightsheer™ Laser has a very large spot size and vacuum suction technology, which is ideal for treating large body areas such as the arms, legs, and back quickly and painlessly.

Alongside Lightsheer Diode™, we also have two other world-renowned Laser hair removal platforms, namely Lutronics Clarity II™, Lightsheer Desire™, Cutera™ XEO with 1064nm wavelength, and Revlite™SI with 1064nm to tackle almost every type of skin. 

Treatment Discomfort

Our latest generation of high-speed laser platforms offers minimal to no treatment discomfort in most cases.

Common medical conditions associated with excess hair growth and related conditions are:

Hirsutism is a medical term for excessive hair growth in women. Hirsutism can be a result of multiple factors, such as Polycystic ovaries (PCOS), and is usually a significant cause of emotional distress and poor self-esteem in those suffering from this disorder.

Hypertrichosis is excessive hair growth over and above the norm based on the age, sex, and race of an individual. In contrast to hirsutism, which is excess hair growth in women, Hypertrichosis can develop all over the body or can be isolated to small patches affecting both men and women. Hypertrichosis may be congenital (present at birth) or acquired (arising later in life).

Folliculitis barbae is a type of folliculitis affecting the bearded area. It is also known as shaving rash or razor bumps. It is an inflammatory reaction surrounding ingrown facial hair resulting from shaving.

Potential Risks & Complications

Laser hair removal has some potential risks and complications. Generally, these are transient in nature and heal within a few days.

These include:
• Skin irritation
• Temporary redness and swelling
• Minor burns (rare)
• Hyperpigmentation (in darker skin types)
• Non-responsive skin: Some people simply do not respond to Laser Hair Removal. Over the past few years, we have seen a handful of such cases.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

There is a common misconception that Laser Hair Removal is a permanent treatment.
Human body is a living structure and keeps producing fresh body cells, including new hair follicles. Therefore it is important to understand that Laser Hair Removal results may not be permanent and may require touch-up treatments once or twice each year.

How Many Sessions of Laser Hair Removal Are Needed?

A minimum of 4-5 laser treatments are needed for a 90% reduction in hair follicles in any body area. Due to the nature of hair growth cycle, only 20% of hair follicles can be effectively targeted at any given point in time.

• Patients with hormonal disturbances, PCOS (Polycystic Ovaries) often require ongoing maintenance Laser treatments to target newly formed hair follicles produced in the skin.

• Men often need more treatment sessions ongoing basis than women due to the male hormones (testosterone) constantly producing fresh hair follicles.

Lighter color hair is difficult to treat compared to darker-colored hair. This is because the laser energy destroys darker (pigmented) hair more easily.

Why are Laser Hair Removal treatments so cheap at clinics operating out of shopping malls?

Corporate-owned, Franchise Laser Clinics operate solely to generate profits for their investors. The business model they adopt focuses solely on quantity rather than quality. They attract as many customers as possible with cheap promotions and discounts on laser treatments. Customers who opt to go there are then sold other cosmetic treatments and products to achieve the clinic’s sales targets.

Most of these establishments have junior clinical staff with little experience and no direct medical supervision on site.

All Laser hair removal treatments at Medaesthetics are performed under direct medical supervision.
