Japan IPL Express – Free IPL Shots 2020


Celebrating their 7th anniversary this year, you may be familiar with the generous annual Japan IPL Express giveaway – Free 100 IPL Shots for both new and existing customers, no strings attached. Just show up to any of their 12 outlets in Singapore on 6th September 2020 between 10.30AM-9PM, and zap your pesky hairs away.

Considering that 2020 has been quite the rocky year, Japan IPL Express also aims to grant the wishes of 7 lucky people. Sky’s the limit, and you could wish for anything from a year’s worth of bubble tea to getting your school fees paid off. Whatever it’ll take to make life run smoother, much like your hairless skin post-IPL treatment.

Here’s a walkthrough of the IPL process, and how to get your wish granted:


Japan IPL Express treatment process – how it works


Japan IPL Express - Funan Branch

Japan IPL Express operates on a ‘no appointment’ basis, meaning you can pop by one of their outlets when it’s convenient. No more having to rush for appointments after work or class, fighting for limited slots or messing around with complicated booking processes.

They also don’t do packages, all shots are à la carte at $1.98 each. That said, they also have promotions every month where you can get free shots based on how many you buy at a time – the more you purchase, the more you’ll save. So keep your eyes peeled for new promos on the Japan IPL Facebook page!

As a particularly hairy girl myself, I’ve tried practically every hair removal method imaginable. Shaving is a high-commitment chore, and waxing is a little too high on the ouch factor for my liking.

Japan IPL Express - Treatment Process

Initially afraid that IPL would involve some degree of pain, all my woes were put to rest when the aesthetician fired the first shot. It was nothing more than a quick burst of warmth on my skin, incredibly tolerable and a sensation that you’ll get used to in no time at all.

There wasn’t any discomfort to speak of, and the treatment was actually quite relaxing. You could take it as precious downtime from your busy day to scroll through your phone, or even catch a quick nap.

Don’t worry about having to set aside half a day just to de-fuzz yourself, as the gentle yet efficient aestheticians are able to get the job done in about 20 minutes for 2 half-arms, and my knuckle hairs. Even if you were to do more complicated areas like Brazilian, or a combination of several small areas, the treatment likely wouldn’t extend past an hour in total.
