My IPL Laser Underarm Hair Removal Experience (Fourth Session)
I have hair in my armpits that requires regular shaving. It doesn’t worry me much except when I’m out wearing sleeveless tops. Over the years, I have observed that continued shaving can make the hair in the armpit grow thicker and longer. Shaving can be tiring, too, as armpit hair grows faster than those in the arms or the legs. I gave up on plucking a long time ago because my armpits had ‘chicken skin’ from it.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Laser hair removal is arguably the better way to manage armpit hair growth than plucking, shaving and waxing combined. Compared to the first-known laser hair removal, IPL “uses specific wavelengths of light that deliver greater energies while causing lesser damage to the skin.” In fact, IPL even guarantees permanent hair removal. When I learned about this, I started checking out the prices of IPL laser hair removal treatments in many salons in the metro. I was shocked to find out that one session alone could cost me P3,500 to P6,000. Ouch. I can never afford that. I don’t want to afford that.
Good thing Groupon sites now offer the same treatment at a fraction of the cost. Last January, I chanced upon an offer from my fave Groupon site Ensogo for an IPL laser hair removal at White Beauty Face and Body Center for just P600 per voucher per session. I got one for trial purposes but never got around to using it. Expiration is June 2011, anyway, and so I still have ample time to schedule my treatment.
This morning upon checking my inbox, I saw this email alert from Metrodeal (another good Groupon site) offering P300 per voucher per session for an IPL hair removal treatment at La Estetica. It was being sold at 91% off. I couldn’t believe my eyes. This was the promo I had long been waiting for. I immediately purchased four vouchers and planned to use them ASAP. But first I had to use the one I got from Ensogo. Given that, I will get to have a total of five sessions of the same treatment from two different beauty centers. I hope it will be enough to get rid of my armpit hair permanently. Yes, as in no more hair growth. If this won’t be the case, I’d see what I can do after the last session.
I look forward to my first IPL hair removal session. I read up online a session lasts for only 10 minutes max. Just to make things more exciting for me, I’ll be documenting my experience in this blog.
Have you tried IPL laser hair removal yet? If yes, how did it go for you?
