Hair removal IPL treatments in Singapore

Many of us fear the pain of hair removal: we’ve all heard horror stories of waxing gone wrong and we’re not comfortable with a stranger getting that close either. But with IPL, a permanent hair removal method that uses light waves to zap away hair follicles, it’s entirely pain-free.

With Japan IPL Express range of IPL treatments, from Brazillian treatments to underarm hair removal, you’ll be silky smooth all over. Unlike other beauty salons, there’s no need to buy a package or book an appointment either – you can just head on down. Good riddance to ingrown hair bumps and stubbly leg hair!

P.S. Read to the end to find out how to score free Brazilian and Boyzilian IPL treatments on 9th June 2019!

There’ll first be a consultation session where you can choose specific areas for hair removal. Refer to the map below – it shows how many shots each area needs for thorough and permanent hair removal.

As a guide, you’ll need 6 to 10 shots for your upper lip, and 20 to 30 shots for each underarm. Their Brazilian treatment needs approximately 60 to 150 shots. Use this as a rough gauge since each individual is different – you’ll be assigned a therapist to help assess your hair type and growth rate.

For the treatment itself, you’ll be led to a small room where there’s a robe for you to change into. Here’s your chance to ask the therapist all questions you have, anything from the session duration to the pain level. Thankfully, the therapist was friendly and went out of her way to assure me that there’s hardly any pain whatsoever.

The therapist also gave a thorough explanation on how IPL works – FYI, it involves a device that shoots light and heat in pulsating waves to zap away each individual hair follicle.

First off, the therapist will gently trim your nether regions with an electric shaver. There’ll be some soothing cream applied too. Once the treatment starts, you’ll see a flashing light with each zap, but don’t worry: it doesn’t hurt one bit. At most, you’ll feel a short, tingling buzz.




The treatment was over in just 30 minutes – thanks to the comfy bed, time flew by super quickly. You’ll then be briefed on after-care procedures so that the results are more long-lasting.

I was also told to avoid bathing in hot water, and instead, use warm water to avoid overheating regions that was exposed to intense heat waves.
