IPL hair removal experience

From previous post on my favorite aloe vera gel, I've mentioned that I had an IPL hair removal trial. IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light. IPL is one way of reducing hair growth on any part of your body, and it also helps to lighten pigmentation. IPL treatment are usually done in six sessions to be effective. You will be asked to come back between 4-6 weeks.

I came across at Hawaiian Spa (by Fabulous Group) and gave it a try as I don't see any negative reviews and they don't do hard selling.

This is their waiting area, you can hear relaxing music, and the ambience looks like that you're on a beach.

Here's the room where the IPL is being done.

The treatment last for less than 10 minutes on both underarms. First, they will clean your underarms, then get IPL zaps on each underarm. There is no cold gel needed as they are using a pain-free medical grade machine. The machine is cold and the IPL zaps feel like a rubber band snaps. Ant bite is more hurtful than IPL zaps. 

The people here are nice and my therapist is Adniah. After my treatment, I just went to the counter and pay. Their trial costs S$48. I'm happy that they did not do hard selling. Adniah just discussed their promotion while she's doing the treatment.

After a week, hair starts to fall. You can pull it using your hands. I prefer to use tweezers to pull the hair strands. You can pull the hair strands without force, it's like the hair is not connected to your skin. As for the result, the hair grows very slowly and thinner. Also, there is no redness or irritation. 

For those located on other countries, I suggest that you look for reviews and feedbacks online about the salon or clinic where you want to do your hair removal treatment. If you're interested, do an IPL trial first, then observe within a month if hair grows slower and thinner. It is also important that the treatment will not cause skin irritations. Always go for IPL trial, and observe the result before signing up an IPL session package. Hope this helps!

Intense Pulse Light or IPL treatment is also useful in the treatment or in other words getting rid of unwanted hair. The people do not know is the fact that when unwanted hair is removed then a person can get rid of diseases such as pigmentation, acne and other skin disorders.

IPL is good for everybody who are dealing with skin issues. However it is reported to act better on individuals with lighter complexion. The settings may have to be adjusted to suit those who are dark skinned.

Hi Kitty Lim, thank you for visiting my site. I agree, settings are to be adjusted depending on their skin color.

Hi Geraldine, I'm already done in my 6th session and I can say that I don't pluck or shave anymore. It still depends on individual per treatment. Hope this helps. Thanks for visiting!
