It’s The Perfect Time Of Year For Laser Hair Removal

High Society Skin Clinic’s Candela laser will have you silky smooth in no time!

For those of you out there who have been considering laser hair removal, but it’s never seemed quite the right time, now is your chance! Believe it or not, the cooler Hong Kong weather throughout the autumn and winter is ideal for getting your treatment underway. That’s because you have to avoid sunbathing and tanning afterwards, and you’re less likely to be lazing around in swimwear on Shek O Beach in November than you are in June or July! But isn’t laser hair removal expensive we hear you ask? Well, ordinarily yes! But one-stop beauty shop, and Sassy favourite, High Society Skin Clinic & PrincessBrows currently has a great offer on its Candela laser (read on for full details of this perk), that makes it more affordable than waxing, not to mention longer lasting!

So now you’ve made your mind up, why should you trust the Candela laser? Well, it’s currently used in 85 countries around the world (so it must be doing something right) and is regarded as one of the top non-invasive forms of hair removal on the market. It combines a longer wavelength (755 nanometres to be precise) with high energy to target the hairs, meaning the length of time the treatment takes is quicker than other types of laser (the shorter, the better in our opinion!).

But the thing that really appeals to us is the Candela’s state-of-the-art inbuilt Dynamic Cooling Device (or DCD as it’s known) because, let’s face it, hair removal usually comes with some degree of discomfort. This clever system ensures the whole process is as painless as possible, by selectively cooling the upper layers of your skin before, during and after the energy pulse from the laser is applied. It serves a dual purpose by making the whole process more comfortable for you, at the same time as counteracting any heat emitted from the laser itself.

It would be remiss of us not to mention the fact that within four to six quick treatments you should notice all your hair in the treated area is gone (we do love efficiency), meaning you’ll be ready to pull those bikinis on again once the warmer weather kicks in. Of course, results do vary from person to person, so we recommend giving the salon a call to discuss any queries before kicking the whole process off. Maybe you’ll finally be able to retire those razors and wax strips!

Sassy Perk: If you mention Sassy when booking, you’ll pay just $960 (instead of $2,500) which covers you for up to eight treatments on a selected area (including underarm or upper lip) within a two-year period.
