This post is long overdue, but anyway, better late than never. I had my second and third IPL session at Power Peel Clinic on Panay Avenue on Jan. 7 and 21, respectively. The sessions were two weeks apart, as instructed by the clinic. My goal was still the same: to get rid of my underarm hair.
During my first IPL session at Power Peel Clinic, I experienced some hair fall a few days after the treatment. Some parts of my underarms became hairless already but I could still see some chicken skin which was the product of my plucking history ages ago (I guess IPL doesn’t cure that, haha). I didn’t shave until the day of my second session which was in the morning of Jan. 7. Take note that I only shaved the segments with hair; I intentionally didn’t touch the already hairless parts for fear that the hair would grow again. Makes sense, right?

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.
