After a two-week delay, I finally got my fourth IPL laser underarm hair removal treatment from La Estetica-Tomas Morato branch. As I still had two vouchers left and both are expiring this month, I thought of giving the other voucher to my sister J. We went to the clinic yesterday afternoon and we were finished in no time.
So far, I have observed that my underarms now have less and finer hair. My underarm hair used to be on the thick side, you know. They may be far from being hairless, but I can say I’m quite satisfied with the changes. I plan to buy new IPL vouchers but will choose a different clinic because I want to get more laser clicks. While my first IPL session from a different beauty clinic gave me several clicks per underarms, La Estetica during my second, third and fourth session only gave me four clicks each. As with most of you, I also want to get full value for my money.

I just had my third IPL session this afternoon. The treatment went so fast I felt like I stayed at La Estetica-Tomas Morato for less than 10 minutes only. This time, they shaved my underarm hair first and put some gel on both underarms before doing the laser thingy. It was also the first time I tried counting the number of times they would apply the laser to my underarms. Can you believe each underarm only had four IPL hits? That’s why it was that fast!
To be honest, I haven’t seen any decrease in my underarm hair a month after my second IPL session. It’s like nothing has changed at all. I still have two IPL sessions left with La Estetica so I don’t wanna lose hope this early. Perhaps, I’m just expecting more because of the favorable results of my first IPL session with a different beauty clinic where right after a few days, I noticed some parts of my underarms became hair-free already.

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.
