Painless laser hair removal, almost.

 

LaserMed opened in Tallinn’s Old Town last summer, and they have already become quite popular. I went to visit them in December to meet their doctors and find out more about what procedures they offer.

Laser hair removal treatments have been around for decades. I, myself, have considered it for a number of years, but have never committed to it because of cost and fear of pain. The pain factor is a bit absurd, because somehow us women will continue to wax, pluck, and shave away our unwanted hair, instead of going through a few laser hair removal treatments, which, by the way, are not as painful as they used to be. Laser hair removal has come a long way.

Upon my visit to LaserMed, I decided to finally give in to my curiosity about laser hair removal. The LightSheer DUET laser is one of the best lasers out there for laser hair removal. It uses a vacuum- assisted technology that increases the hair removal area; meaning procedures are more effective and faster. For example, hair removal on legs can be done in just 15 minutes, whereas with an older laser, it would have taken 45 minutes.

Winter is the best time for laser hair removal procedures because hair is at its darkest. Darker hair is easier for the laser to find. In summer, hair is lighter from the sun. The procedure is relatively painless. You can feel the vacuum of the handset pull your skin upwards. There is a warm feeling. After the procedure, your skin is red and slightly irritated. To soothe the skin after the treatment, the doctor holds an ice pack to your skin for a few minutes. By the next day, the irritation should be gone.

The LightSheer DUET laser has two different hand pieces. The larger one is for legs, back, and underarms; where as the smaller one is used to treat more sensitive areas, like face and bikini.

Laser hair removal still requires multiple treatments. When you visit LaserMed for the first time, you will have a consultation with one of the doctors there to discuss your needs and decide on the best course of treatment. Sergei Sarap M.D., Aleksandr Jesmenov M.D. and Irina Maksimova M.D. are happy to answer any questions you may have.

In addition to laser hair removal, LaserMed also offers Fractional Laser Medical and Aesthetic Treatments, Botulin Toxin (Botox) Injections, Dermal Fillers, Biorevitalisation, and Marma Therapy.
