I had above and beyond service here. Like others have said, the doctor has perfect English, and he has a wealth of knowledge. After my treatment, the doctor gave me his direct line so I could message him with any problems or questions that I had.He never tried to upsell me for anything besides what I asked for and even persuaded me not to have a treatment I wanted to get because of risks of complications.In my follow up appointment, the doctor had me go through another round of treatment without charging me. I ended up going through a third treatment, which I should have probably been charged for, but he ended up not charging me. Each treatment, I got better and better.I definitely would go here again for any other treatment I will get in the future and would tell my family to come here as well. It's really hard to find someone that you can trust and who isn't going to treat you just like a number. Plus, it was really affordable and you get some of your tax money back at the airport if you're a foreigner.

I am delighted to offer a review for ATOP Plastic Surgery Clinic. From the moment I received my first reply from Leah on my inquiry for council from ATOP until my last follow-up, I have been treated with care and kindness throughout. The professionalism by the entire staff has always been shown and helped ease my concerns of the potential procedure. In addition, since I do not speak Korean and only English, both Leah and Anna who spoke excellent English were always available for accurate translation. After my first conversation with Anna, she explained all the details and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. Once Dr. Ahn came in for the consultation he was extremely nice, professional, and helped me understand what the best course of action would be to correct the brow sag that was affecting my peripheral vision. While my sagging brows were affecting my vision, it was also affecting my ability to read without getting extremely tired. Once the procedure was complete, I immediately noticed the difference and was able to read without getting tired and my peripheral vision was greatly improved. Thank you, Dr. Ahn and staff for your professionalism and kindness and I will offer my recommendation to those interested in the ATOP Plastic Surgery Clinic.

What you need to know about Laser Hair Removal in South Korea

Laser Hair Removal

Gone are the days of having to constantly shave, pluck or wax unwanted hair from your body. We all know how very time consuming these things are, not to mention the pain you have to endure when you pluck or wax your unwanted hair.

Today, we have several options we can choose from before we can bid goodbye to such undesirable body hair. One of the more popular hairs removal procedures is Laser hair removal - this medical procedure uses a laser, a concentrated beam of light to get rid of unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal can be done in any part of your body. The most common areas include the bikini area, underarms, legs, back, and face.

What does a Laser Hair Removal Procedure Involve?

Completely getting rid of undesirable hair in certain areas of your body can be quite rewarding and it can certainly boost your self-esteem. Laser hair removal eventually eliminates the need for plucking, shaving or waxing. The common body area where this treatment procedure is done includes armpits, bikini line, upper lip, and legs. Although this treatment procedure is possible in almost all parts of the body, the eyelid area is one exemption.

In choosing the right doctor for your procedure, you have to take note of the following:

  • A doctor who specializes in dermatology or cosmetic surgery and has experience with laser hair removal.
  • If a physician assistant or a licensed nurse will execute the procedure, make sure that your doctor is available on-site for supervision.

Before your actual treatment procedure, you have to schedule a consultation with your chosen doctor. During your consultation, costs, expected results, and possible risks will be discussed with you. Furthermore, your doctor will also review your medical history and determine whether this procedure is the appropriate treatment for you. You may also be advised to do the following before your scheduled day:

  • Avoid sun exposure, typically 6 weeks before your treatment and use sunscreen daily.
  • Lighten your skin. Your doctor might also prescribe a skin bleaching cream to lighten your skin if you have a darker skin complexion.
  • Avoid plucking, waxing electrolysis 4 weeks before your treatment. These other methods of hair removal might disturb your hair follicle.
  • Avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Shaving and trimming are recommended a day before your treatment procedure. It gets rid of the hair above the skin that can be burned but at the same time, it leaves the hair shaft intact below the surface.

MyMediTravel currently lists 12 facilities in South Korea offering Laser Hair Removal procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Laser Hair Removal can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

During the procedure, your doctor will press a hand-held laser instrument to the skin area where your unwanted hair is. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair as well as your skin color. Depending on the laser used, you will be asked to wear eye protection to protect your eyes from the laser beam. A cooling gel or a special cooling device will also be used to protect the outer layers of your skin and lessen the risk of side effects. Your doctor might also apply topical anesthetic to your skin to reduce your discomfort.

Your doctor will then activate the laser; the beam will pass through your skin and to your hair follicles. The heat from the laser beam will now damage the hair follicles; as a result, it will prevent hair growth. You might feel a slight discomfort like a warm pinprick but it will be soothed by the cooling gel or device.

How Long Should I Stay in South Korea for a Laser Hair Removal Procedure?

Laser hair removal is done in small areas of your body like your upper lip usually lasts for only a few minutes. In larger areas such as your back, it might take an hour or more. After your procedure has been completed, you will be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory cream or cold water to ease your discomfort. You can go home right after you have undergone the treatment. Furthermore, stitches are not required in this procedure.

What's the Recovery Time for Laser Hair Removal Procedures in South Korea?

For the first two days, it may seem like the treated area was sunburned. Applying a cool compress and moisturizer will help you with your discomfort. If your face was treated, you will not be allowed to wear makeup if your skin is blistering.

It usually takes 2 to 3 weeks to see any difference. You may schedule your next treatment after 4 or 6 weeks. Note that you need to continuously undergo the treatment until your hair stops growing; this may take 8 to 12 treatments before acquiring full results

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Laser Hair Removal Procedures in South Korea?

The heat from the laser will stay in your skin for 24 hours so you need to avoid the gym, sauna, or even taking a hot shower. Doing so will increase the risk of bacteria multiplying and giving you spots. Strictly avoiding the sun before and after your procedure is essential, it is also recommended for you to avoid chemical peels for 2 weeks after your procedure.

What's the Success Rate of Laser Hair Removal Procedures in South Korea?

Over 90% of laser hair removal patients have been reported to have permanent hair loss after an average of 3 to 6 sessions. The treatment, however, is not recommended for eyelids, eyebrows or surrounding areas due to the possibility of severe eye injury.

On a very rare occasion, this treatment may also cause blistering, crusting, scarring or changes in your skin texture. Graying of treated hair or excessive hair growth on darker skin may also occur as side effects. The most common side effects are skin irritation and pigment changes. All these risks of side effects will vary on your skin type, hair color, treatment plan and your adherence to pre-treatment and post-treatment care.

Are there Alternatives to Laser Hair Removal Procedures in South Korea?

Not everyone is a good candidate for laser hair removal, especially if you have darker skin or fairer hair. But the good news is that there are alternatives to this procedure. Electrolysis is one of the most popular alternatives. It is actually the closest procedure for laser hair removal. Instead of making use of intensive light, a radio frequency will be used to destroy your hair follicle. You may be required to undergo at least 15 to 30 sessions to achieve your ideal result.

Other forms of alternatives are the traditional plucking, shaving, and hair waxing.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 31/03/2022.
