After all the bumps and rough edges of 2020, we’re all looking forward to a sleeker, smoother year. Why not make it a smoother year for your body too? Hong Kong’s international hair and skincare salon Glow offers a range of hair removal treatments, from waxing to laser hair removal, to get you sorted – plus some great deals to boot!
Laser Hair Removal Treatments
In addition to IPL and waxing, laser hair removal is a popular option at the salon. This tried and tested means of achieving near-total hair reduction for extended periods has been available since the early 2000s. It utilises a well understood mechanism to trigger hair fall and significantly reduce regrowth.
We asked Glow’s aestheticians JAY TSUI and CANDY LEE for more details.
What machines do you use for laser hair removal?
Our laser machines are new from October 2019 and employ the latest technology. The continuous-pulse 808nm (nanometre) and 810nm units feature a super chilled handpiece, which ensures minimal discomfort while still allowing for rapid, continuous coverage of even large areas.
What kind of treatments do you offer?
A treatment course typically consists of a consultation and patch test followed by six therapy sessions; there’s also a complimentary 12-month touch-up period that commences on the completion of your sixth treatment. We also offer single treatments for those people looking for a “top-up” treatment or for those people who prefer to pay session by session.
What results can I expect after a six-session course?
Six treatments would typically be enough to attain near total achievable hair reduction, with a 70 percent reduction considered a successful result. Achieving these optimum results would require completing the course of treatment within a maximum of nine months.
How do I get started?
You can book a free, no-pressure consultation and patch test today. At Glow, we have a “No Hard Sell” policy; our aestheticians are trained in the theory, technology and techniques of your treatment, and are happy to share their knowledge.
