8 treatments are more than enough for an average person. By your 6th-7th treatment, your therapist may advise you to change to the IPL handpiece as the hair gets finer. The rationale for doing so is to use the lower wavelength IPL (590nm onwards) to mop up the residual hair which would otherwise be hard for a 800-810nm diode or 755nm Alexandrite laser to target. Of course, you can still choose to use laser if you prefer, but IPL will work better when your hair gets finer.
Honeypot’s laser machine is a multi-platform machine with flexibility of using diode, Nd-YAG and IPL. The machine is FDA cleared with CE certification with the best in class components. The diode array has very fast recharging. The fast recharging means we are able to finish the treatment faster than some of the other diode lasers available in the market. The 808nm wavelength is versatile for skin type I-IV. The selection process was based on our client base, ranging from across different ethnic groups.
Most laser treatments go wrong when the therapist choose a wrong setting so we have a melanin meter to guide the therapist. The melanin meter guides the therapists on the right energy level to use before the treatment. This is to ensure that there is an objective anchor for the therapists so they do not deviate too much from the suggested energy levels. There is a tradeoff between treatment effectiveness and safety, and having this device help to strike the right balance. There are 2 options to the treatment. Stamping is more effective as the energy level is targeted directly while the painting mode spreads the energy level across a specified area. The painting mode will save more time to the customer though the energy level is spread across a wider area. We can finish full legs in about 30-40 minutes using the stamping mode, and about 20mins using painting mode.
There are many good lasers in the market. The 755 nm Alexandrite laser is very powerful and used by some established doctors while the 800-810 nm diode series are normally used by both salons and clinics.
Do not sun tan 2 weeks before your treatment. Please let us know if you are on any long term medications. We will not serve any customers who is pregnant or suspected to be pregnant. We also do not serve any customer who is on Accutane, or any form of diuretics. All customers will have to complete a consultation form to make sure you are suitable for laser treatments.
Customers should use a salon or clinic where the therapists or doctors know what they are doing, with very good SOPs, a good machine and try to stick to the same therapist if possible. All treatments should be logged. Customers should do their research on the salons/clinic before they sign up a package. Our laser packages have a 7-day cooling off period, and no processing fee for refunds for cash payments.
Yes, it can be slightly uncomfortable but not a sharp pain, more like a rubber band snapping on your skin. Our therapist will adjust the fluence according to your pain tolerance.
Both are good treatments. Laser hair removal is more powerful than IPL and need less treatments to have long term hair reduction. If you are just concerned with hair removal, you should choose mostly laser given it is more efficient. IPL, on the other hand, uses a broad spectrum of light and so can help to rejuvenate your skin at the same time. IPL works better for fairer skin and thinner hair. Based on the feedback from numerous clinical trainers, we feel that a combination of both laser and IPL works best. Laser can do the heavy lifting while IPL can finish up the residual fine hair given the lower wavelength of our IPL handpiece.Our IPL handpiece has one of the highest energy density in the world. IPL is also slightly less painful compared to laser and is suitable for people who has less pain tolerance.
