FAQs: Getting Laser Hair Removal in the Philippines

By Belo Medical Group on June 4, 2020

If you tuned in to Dr. Belo’s live discussion with Cosmo.ph last May 15 (can you believe it’s been two weeks? What even IS time during quarantine?), you’d remember a piece of advice she had for patients who were in between laser hair removal sessions. According to her, they should be shaving instead of plucking, since the former keeps fat follicles intact, making them easier for the laser to find. That said, our Greenbelt, Greenhills, Alabang, Tomas Morato, and Davao clinics have now reopened, meaning you can resume your sessions again! Yay! But for the uninitiated, what can they expect from a laser hair removal treatment at Belo Medical Group? Read on to find out.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Pain can depend on a lot of things: your personal pain tolerance, as well as the machine used for your treatment. Belo offers several hair removal solutions that are practically painless or only involve minimal discomfort: the Harmony SHR treatment is known to be completely painless (Ivana Alawi and Gabbi Garcia love it!), while the G-Max Pro machine uses cooling bursts of cryogen to cool the skin before and after laser exposure. 

How does laser hair removal work?

Lasers zap away hair with a beam of light. This light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which is called melanin. This light energy becomes converted to heat, which is absorbed by your hair follicles. These hair follicles will now be inhibited from producing any more hair. This is why doctors choose the right laser hair removal machine for you depending on your skin tone and hair type. For example, thicker hair (like on your bikini area) can call for a different type of laser than finer hair (like the one on your upper lip), for example. 

Where’s the best place to get laser hair removal?

Belo Medical Group is the best clinic to undergo laser hair removal because we have a wide range of machines to ensure that you get optimum results. Not only that, our skilled and precise doctors can make sure that you get those results for a minimal amount of sessions. Lastly, our series of aftercare products will ensure that your skin recovers safely. No other place but Belo!

Why is laser hair removal worth it?

Obviously, you’ll get to say goodbye to shaving and waxing, which can be cheap in the long run but you’ll have to do them forever. Depending on the machine, only 3-6 sessions are needed to get hair-free skin for up to 20 years, according to Dr. Belo during her Cosmo.ph discussion. Now that’s an awesome investment! Hair-free legs and a simplified beauty routine? Go for it!

Now, your next step is to book a consultation with a Belo MD so they can lay out a laser hair removal schedule that works for you.
