ever since i have hit puberty, i started shaving my underarms. i do not like plucking or waxing, so i sticked to shaving. however, the friction caused by this process causes my underarm to darken, plus the fact that it is high maintenance. i have to shave at least every 3 days.
i looked for several painless hair removal options in group buying sites, but i was hesitant since some of the “clinics” were unknown to me or were far from my location. i also tried inquiring in several establishments but i found the price a little too steep.
finally, i found skin station. they offered a painless hair removal promo. the package included 8 sessions for just php 5000.00, which you could also avail via installment plan in your credit card. another plus factor was that they used diode instead of IPL. so last year, as a birthday gift to myself, i availed of the package.
before your first session, you will be briefed on what you should/shouldn’t do before and after your diode session. each session is separated by a 6 to 8 week interval to make sure that they will be able to target most of the hair. a session lasts from 10-15 minutes for the underarms. there is no irritable feeling at all during and after the session. the wand might get a little hot during the session, but you can always tell your therapist regarding this so that she could add some gel to lessen the heat.
they use state-of-the-art alma soprano machine for the procedure. according to the website, this is the gold standard in diode laser technology, so you can be assured that you are getting the best.
the results depend of course on each person. some are virtually hair free before the 8th session. as for me, i still have some underarm hair although they are very slow in growth and are already very thin that you can barely notice them. according to the therapist i might need 2-3 more sessions. after that, i will just be needing regular maintenance procedures. so i availed another 8-session package. 🙂
for those looking for a cheap but high quality painless hair removal, i highly recommend that you go to your nearest skin station branch. they usually have promo/packages for the different services that they offer. the staff are very friendly and helpful to assist you if you have inquiries.
