Japan hair removal

Japanese are known for their flawless and radiant skin. No doubt, it is because of their genes, healthy lifestyle, and skincare routine. Other than using different beauty products to maintain their flawless skin, surprisingly, they remove or shave unwanted facial and body hair. And since Japan is leading in technology and innovation worldwide, using advanced body hair removal techniques are very common. Some popular clinics and salons design their own hair removal machines. Medical institutions use high-tech medical lasers for hair removal while aesthetic salons use new technologies such as IPL, SHR, etc.

What is laser hair removal?  It is a hair removal procedure using a laser, which effectively targets hair roots, follicles to control the hair growth, and can even stop the growth permanently. It usually begins with an assessment of the skin area that will receive treatment and also an appropriate preparation, which includes wearing of eye protection. During the procedure, a medical practitioner will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and observe it for several minutes. Once the procedure is completed, they may provide an anti-inflammatory lotion or ice pack to reduce discomfort. The next session will be scheduled probably after 4-6 weeks. Besides, you will need more treatment to stop hair growth permanently.

Now, before you decide where to undergo this kind of treatment, you should take into consideration the following:

  • Look for a reputable clinic or salon
  • Know your medical practitioner or technician, who will be handling the hair removal treatment
