IPL hair removal is painful even with 'numbing' creams.....well..maybe my pain tolerance is low..i dunno. I tried once..feel uncomfortable to continue again.

After some research, I tried the PPX treatment....recently launched in Singapore..supposed to be painless and more advanced than IPL. ...results' gd.....more importantly no PAIN for me..:) Maybe people with low pain threshold can consider it as an option.

The doc at the aesthetic clinic where i had my body sculpting treatment done recommended me to try PPx for hair removal when i told him my bad experience with IPL..Being abit sceptical, i aso did some research before committing to trying this (scared that it might turn out to be as painful as IPL)..I had 3 sessions so far, to treat upper lip, i'm not too sure the cost of armpit hair removal, so might not be able to help u with this..u can call 65364211 for more infor..think the nurse will be able to advise u on this.

Hope this helps. :D

I had PPX hair removal for my upper lips and underarm. I was not given any 'numbing' cream to apply before the procedure but except for a mild 'pinching' sensation, there is not much pain (and it only took about 30 minutes to treat my upper lips and both underarms) So far, I had 2 of the 4 sessions I signed up for but my hair already seems much reduced....but then again, I was not very 'hairy' to start of with. For those wanting to know more about this treatment, I recomment this PPX website: http://www.cosmopolitanclinic.com/ppx.htm

i went to Hairaway myself for underarms and legs and they work great. you need a couple of treatments but you don't really care about the costs so much when you know for sure it really works and after 6 treatments (at most or thereabouts) no more hair will grow.

hope this helps!

I have had one session in BelaSkin care ...it was a great one and I already see hair reduction..
I had also a free facial care..

but it was so expensive...1300S$ :(

I had full leg= lower back done..

they suggested to me 10 sessions to completely remove haire..but it will cost me around 8000$...I'm not yet crazy enough to spend such an amount on my leg's hair :(

According to her, per seesion for armpit is $100, per session for lip area is $50, persession for whole leg is $1500, per session for half hand is $800 and lastly for bikini line is $60.

This is the retail price for the company and she told me that she can get 30% off every sinlge session.... AM oso informed that they are using LHE rather than IPL cos the effectiveness of it is better than the latter...

Juz to let u gals know that how price is like for these type of treatments and if any of u gal want or try to know more about it... do PM me and i will ask for u with my friend who is really happy with the result.... :wink:

regards
Jason
