I first did IPL when I was 17 years old - I did IPL on my arms and legs as I used to be a very hairy kid (true story). It was impacting on my self confidence and myself and mom made the decision to do permanent hair removal. It was a painful 6 - 7 months process - There were multiple times when my skin got burnt, as the IPL light was really strong and it was delivered in "shots" one area by area.
Fast forward 8 years later and now you can do painless IPL at EstheClinic with MacPeel’s No Pain System (NPS). This treatment gradually raises the heat of the dermis to the temperature needed to effectively damage the hair follicle, preventing re-growth while not injuring surrounding tissue. Instead of the traditional IPL laser shots I experienced previously, which delivers pulsed light in one sudden zap, EstheClinic's No Pain System IPL treatment is dynamic and uses a handpiece that is swept across the skin, with the light blasted consistently at a high frequency.
Hence, this allows the light to be covered over a larger surface area in the shorter amount of time with no pain. I decided to test this treatment out for my bikini line hair removal, especially when the bikini area is more sensitive to pain. And I can testify that this is completely painless, you only feel heat on the treatment area.
Treatment FrequencyWith this treatment, you'd only need 7-9 sessions to remove 80-90% of hair permanently. These sessions are spaced six weeks apart from each other and with only 2-3 maintenance sessions per year for 1 or 2 years for finishing touches.
CostFrom $48 per session for underarms to $419 per session for the full legs. 4-10 sessions six weeks apart are recommended for optimum results depending on the targeted areas.
You can find EstheClinic at 3 locations across Singapore, set in shophouses and in very relaxing settings.
