My First Session Laser Hair Removal Experience at Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic

We all wish to have silky smooth, baby soft and clear skin. Unfortunately my hair grows in all the undesirable areas. I can still recall one of my most embarrassing moment when I was in high school when I was a muse in our intrams and I was wearing a sexy sleeveless dress trying to look pretty but then I lost my confidence when one of the boys pointed to my armpit hair and said, "EW!" :(. He was teasing me until the end of school year. 

I immediately bought a razor and decided to try shaving my hairy armpits and legs. For a day, I was very pleased with the results because it made my legs and armpits look silky smooth  but only for a day. Afterwards I found that hairs grew back out prickly and gross and I noticed that my armpits were shades darker than before. It became even worse during pregnancy that I am so embarrassed to put my hands up. 

I've actually tried almost all kinds of hair removal methods such as tweezing, threading, waxing shaving, depilatory creams and a trial session of laser hair removal last December. 

For the first time today I went to Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic to try remove them permanently with The GentleMax Pro
What is GentleMax Pro?

GentleMax Pro is a single consolidated system that delivers a range of treatments-- all skin type hair removal, as well as pigmented and vascular lesions. 

The GentleMax Pro is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm premier laser with the Nd: YAG 1064 nm laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction. 

How does the laser work with the GentleMax Pro?
Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece operated by the practitioner. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure. 

How many treatments will one require? 
Hair growth and pigment is reduced after each treatment and number of treatments required will be based on your hair color, and type, body area and skin tone. 

Are treatments safe?
This is a FDA approved Laser and light-based treatments that have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. 

Are there side effects?
Side effects may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (a laser bruise) in the treated area- these usually do not last more than a few days. Permanent side effects are rare and the risks are minimal.
The Treatment Room 
The practitioner at Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic made me feel really comfortable through the whole process. She was very friendly and explain to me everything I need to do about the treatment. 

If you are worried about the pain, then I must tell you it's bearable and shouldn't be stopping you from achieving smooth skin. Every shot done is just like having rubber bands snap on your skin. 

After having the treatment, the practitioner applied anti-inflammatory cream on the skin to reduce the itchiness and redness and advice me to apply again for three days or whenever needed. I was back to normal after the treatment, there was no discomfort or whatsoever. 

I was given a POST-CARE INSTRUCTIONS to follow: 
1. Do not pluck/wax 3-4 weeks before and in between treatments. 
2. Shaving is allowed at least once in between laser sessions. It would be better if you can trim it down. 
3. NO WHITENING PRODUCTS for 2 weeks after the treatment. 
4. NO SKIN PEELING for 3 weeks before the treatment. 
5. No Hot/Warm shower within 24 hours after treatment. 
6. Do not use WHITENING/Regular Deodorants for 3 days after treatment. 
7. Minimize anything that can stimulate heat for at least 3 days. 
8. Avoid using whitening soaps and lotions on the treated area. 
-Skin Infections/Diabetes/Tattoo
- Pregnancy
- Isotretinoin
- Epileptic

How much is the  laser hair removal procedure?
Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic is offering a discounted price if you get 6 to 8 sessions. Aside from getting treatment on my underarms, I also had my upper lip done and also planning to also get the Brazilian on my next session. 

I am looking forward to my next treatment in 4 weeks and I am excited to start seeing some results, I will update then and let everyone know how it goes and If I notice any difference in hair growth.

  1. I'm interested 😍 I'm glad I came across your site because I have been looking around for alexandrite nd:yag specifically because I tried it already. Are they precise with the settings and can we pay in installment plans?

  2. Looks like the GentleMax Pro is the answer to my armpit problem. Your article answers all the questions that pop into my mind, habang binabasa ko pababa, may mga tanong ako na paano kung?... tapos..nasasagot agad. Ang galing talaga ng treatment na yan Ms. Rochelle.

  3. I've tried Alexandrite/ ND:Yag in Taiwan, is this the same machine? I am half chinese and half swedish, so I need something that would really work for my skin tone. I have been reading great reviews about Gentlemax Pro. Further feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  4. I haven't tried any laser hair removal because I'm afraid of the side effects. Plus it needs a lot of sessions pa before it becomes really effective. :/ I can't invest for it muna for now. Haha. I'm glad my armpits are not that hairy naman so I just pluck them whenever I see something growing. As for the brazilian, I'm not sure I can endure the pain. /

  5. Wow! I would like to try also 😍 I'd shave my armpits with a regular razor.

  6. this is good news, but the price is ouchy....

  7. Interesting session of your Laser Hair removal

  8. Oh, I really want to try this laser hair removal Philippines, hope someday I can afford it.

  9. I think the rates are reasonable because there won't be any need to finish so many sessions. Research implies that most budget clinics here offer super low rates, but would require unbelievably long sessions that it would really take up so much of your time.

    So far, results are great, I haven't gone back for like 8 months. The few hairs growing are barely noticeable, that the next thing I plan to do is bikini naman.

  10. Are those prices per session?

  11. I hope skin house can open in malls so it's more convenient. Maganda service, dadayuhin nga lang.

  12. Is this permanent hair removal for all laser treatment?
