There were two factors I had considered before getting the laser treatment; 1. Price 2. Safety. Of course, the treatment is not cheap at all, however, I can 100% say that it saves my life. Nowadays, I don't have to buy the shaving equipment, or go to the salon just to get my underarm waxed anymore. Saving my money, saving my time, I am really satisfied with the result.
Though, I am Manchester fashion blogger based, I received the treatment by the specialized doctor at the private hospital in Bangkok, Thailand (there are a lot of clinics out there we all can choose, but since my mom works at the hospital, she would rather suggest the certified doctor) The price was obviously high, but the service was paid off. Was I scared? Yes, I was since I had never tried anything like this before. My mom asked the nurse to put the anaesthetic (ointment) on my underarms, and I had to wait about 30 minutes before going to the laser room (Some clinics do not provide the anaesthetic, instead they may use the ice pack during the laser process right away).
Applying the anaesthetic didn't mean that I felt nothing lol, I still felt the heat, but still in the level of 'ok' Before getting started, the nurse asked me to put on the eyewear which prevents the ray of the laser. Then, the moment of truth began! I could smell the burnt, like literally my underarms were on fire lol It took about 15 minutes to get both sides done. After the treatment, it could be a bit petrified because both of my underarms were really red, but don't worry, it automatically fades in a day or two.
However, I still had to go back to get the treatment done (maybe six times) because my hair still grows even nowadays, but not like dark, and visible anymore. Overall, I am really happy about it because I don't have to worry when wearing the tank-top anymore!
Anyway, if you are looking for a place to get the laser treatment in London, I have come across the City Hair Removal London, whose services are not only for women, but men also. As mentioned above about the "safety" it is very important to check the background and the staff of the hospital or clinic before paying the money. We are talking about the laser here, so it can be really dangerous if the equipment is not high-technology enough. The technicians at Pulse Light Clinic are all highly trained and qualified, so don't worry. Listed as one of the best laser hair removal clinics in London, the team of the clinic always suggests you about the machine which suitable to your skin type. As well as, the recommendation of the times you may need for this laser treatment.
One thing I like about this clinic is the service provided for Asian skin. Yes, I am Asian, therefore my skin is totally different from people here. I had a chance to speak with the clinic about getting the treatment, and they highly recommended that I still needed the patch test so that they will be able to identify which laser is a perfect match for my skin. Actually, there are three types of lasers at this clinic, but one of the most effective is the Soprano XL and ND Yag laser machine (I got this one). The Soprano XL is for all skin types, but ND Yag is for the Asian skin.
For more information, you can also contact the clinic by phone or email for further consultation.
