Laser Hair Removal Review | Premier Clinic TTDI

by - October 24, 2017

ARGHH!! I gave up!
I don't mean to sound negative but somethings just cannot be tolerated any longer

It is just too tedious to get rid of those unsightly hairs. Razors makes the skin grow darker with thicker hair while tweezers is just... so time consuming! Not to mention difficult to reach areas (wherever they choose to grow) with my t-rex arms.
Seriously, how can you girls even stand going through this?!

After some time of go-or-not-to-go moments, I decided to give it a try. People have been telling me the risk of burn from laser therapy and honestly I had my doubts but since it's on my leg (not face), I am ready to take any risk.
Those on my legs wasn't that obvious in the beginning but the 6 years old me was so curious with daddy's shaver and BAM! Life sentence. Like Medusa's hair.

Sorry if I didn't post out any 'Before' pictures (Sibeh paiseh loh!) but I can tell you they grow wilder at the shaved part, less on the untouched area and can reach up to freaking 2 centimetres! Conclusion, keep all shavers away from your girls and give them hair education, like how they did with sex education (Hairs look sexy on guys, so it's fine)

Upon arrival at the beauty centre, I was quietly whisked into the waiting room while they make the necessary preparations. About 5 minutes later, it's time for the consultation. Dr Vanessa from Premier Clinic TTDI did some history taking, physical examinations and explained on how the procedure works; risks and all. Of course, I confessed on my eczema on one of my ankles and we both agree on leaving that area out. One thing I appreciate about added value services was the advice she gave on how to make the eczema better. Although it's not related to the procedure, Dr Vanessa went out of her way and suggested a few ways that might cure it. I still prefer the non-invasive method but if it doesn't work, I might take her advise. Yup, they have steroidal injections for lichenified conditions as well.

 It is advisable to clip any visible hairs 4 days in advance (to allow healing of any micro abrasions by razers). Apparently I didn't do a great job, so they had to complete it and followed by application of some numbing cream for about 20 minutes. I was only able to comprehend the reason behind it much later.

 The procedure wasn't that bad. Almost like going for sun bathing with a rather cool pair of sunshades and some zap zap entertainment.
 
Well, at least it was until they reach some areas the numbing cream missed. Then, it got REAL exciting. However, the team was quick to give some cold towel to sooth the area before proceeding. Well, it's too late to stop now.

 
 One thing I've learn about hair removal laser therapy was the laser used is depends entirely on the thickness of your hair. The thicker it is, the higher voltage they need to use and it requires more session because they cannot do it too many times at the same area. At that moment, I cannot help but to think "Luckily that little girl did not shave her entire legs!".
According to Dr Vanessa, ideally the individual hair should 'evaporate' as soon as the laser is fired but some stubborn ones require higher voltage and could not disappear completely. I had a few of those FML. Those hairs that grow near scarring areas need to be handled with more caution because scars are more sensitive to begin with. I had one near my knee from a childhood incident and they gave me some cream to reduce the mild redness.

 It's almost 1 month post my first laser hair removal session and here are reasons why I would suggest you to go for it.

#1  Those finer hairs never came back. Like NEVER.
#2 The stubborn ones? Thank god I don't have many but they (about 3-5 of them) grew more fine at a slower rate. Based on my observation, it has been so long and only grew 0.5 cm so far! Compared to the previous 2 bloody centimeters, I would say it's a YES.
(Updates: One session apparently is not enough for me. Still grew back to normal length although it's finer at a slower rate)

If you are those lucky ones, you may only require 1 session!

#3 The redness or any possible tingling pains never stayed. It only lasted me up to 2 days at most.

Thank you Premier Clinic for the good riddance and hope this review will be helpful to those who had the same hairy fate as me.
