What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done laser procedures in Malaysia. The laser beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles and thus destroys the hair.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

During laser hair removal, the emitted light laser is absorbed by the pigment cell (melanin) in the hair, which inactivates the hair follicles that produce hairs. This process thus reduces and inhibits hair growth.

What Type of Laser Hair Removal Is The Best?

Most commonly used lasers for hair removal are diode, alexandrite and long pulse Nd:YAG.

Diode laser is good for both light and dark skin tone.

Nd:YAG laser good for both light and dark skin tone but less effective for fine hair.

Alexandrite laser is the fastest of all these lasers and works best to remove both coarse and fine hair.

The only Alexandrite Laser machine which is safe for both light and dark skin tone is Motus Moveo AX, which is what we, at Dr Jane Clinic are using.

*IPL (Intense pulsed Light) is a broad spectrum light source, which is essentially not a laser and it is incomparable to lasers.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Short answer : Yes if you are treated with any other laser machines besides Motus Moveo AX

Long answer : Most laser hair machine will have “rubber-band snapping” sensation or prickling pain during the treatment.

Due to the slow release of energy by Motus Moveo AX, laser hair removal at Dr Jane Clinic is minimal to no pain. Most people do not feel anything during the treatment, some may experience tingling sensation.

Laser hair removal not only removes unwanted hair, but it also removes skin issues such as ingrown hair and keratosis pilaris.

Can I Wax After Laser Hair Removal?

No, we do not recommend waxing, plucking and tweezing hair before or after laser hair removal. By waxing, plucking and tweezing, you remove the hair follicle which will stimulate the root to produce better regrowth of the follicle. On top of that, the laser targets the hairs roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing, plucking and tweezing.

Is Laser Hair Removal Good For Skin?

Laser hair removal removes the problem of ingrown hair and even improves keratosis pilaris. In a long run, skin will also be healthier, as there is less irritation from waxing, plucking and tweezing.
