Laser Hair Removal in Chiang Mai

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Hair Removal in Chiang Mai

Unwanted hair is a problem for both men and women with the modern emphasis on sleek hairless bodies. Laser hair removal in Chiang Mai enables you to get rid of hair where you don’t want it. Age old methods like waxing, threading, hair removal creams, lotions and shaving all remove hair temporarily and when hair regrows you have to go through the painful process again. Plus as your hair is growing you are unable to wear the clothes that you want and you are covered up.

Laser hair removal is usually done on the same places where you would use other hair removal methods like arms, legs, underarms, face, upper lip, chest, neck and the bikini area. If you have hormonal problems and have hair on other places that you would like removed then you should check with the dermatologist about the efficacy and safety of laser hair removal for those areas.

Why consider laser hair removal in Chiang Mai?

These cosmetic treatments can be expensive when you have to pay for them and the cost may be unaffordable. However, if you go to Chiang Mai for a holiday, you will find that clinics offer this treatment very cheaply and often have package deals as well. After this treatment you can have hairless skin and be free of the problem of regular hair removal as well.

Chiang Mai is a beautiful place and is favored by local and international tourists. Chiang Mai has museums, waterfalls, rainforests, tropical gardens and more. It has quaint shops as well as modern shopping malls and street markets. It also has hotels and other accommodations at different price points to suit your budget and all kinds of cuisines are available here from top of the line fine dining options to hawker street food.

Why book with Medical Departures?

While Chiang Mai has a host of excellent medical facilities, just like any other place, it is also has its share of places that do not have the best reputation. Laser hair removal is generally safe, but in the hands of an unskilled technician you can suffer from burns, pigmentation, skin infections or not get the permanent hair removal that you want. When you go to Chiang Mai as a tourist, you will not be able to tell whether a place is up to standard or not.

To minimize the risk of this happening, it is better to book through Medical Departures. That is because we investigate the qualifications and credentials of the doctors, their skill and experience. We also make sure that the clinic has amenities that adhere to international standard s, such as the ISO, and our investigations mean greater safety for you.

How much time does laser hair removal take and what is the recovery period?

Laser hair removal can take a varying amount of time and this depends on the extent of the area to be treated. If you simply get upper lip or chin or underarms done, it can take as little as half an hour. Larger areas obviously take longer time and can take up to two hours. Laser hair removal treatment works by zapping the hair follicles so that hair does not grow any more.

If you have a low pain threshold, then you may require a topical anesthetic like a lotion or a spray that will reduce pain and burning. Otherwise laser treatment is less painful than waxing and threading. After the treatment you may have some swelling and redness similar to the after effects of waxing. There is no downtime required, but you will have to take care of skin afterwards for a few days and not use any exfoliating products or scrub your skin.

What is the cost of laser hair removal?

The cost of laser hair removal ranges from AUD 60 to AUD 90 for minor work in Australia. For major work, it will cost a lot more. In Chiang Mai you will pay around 50 percent of the cost, so save money.
