STRIP: IPL Treatment

Have you been stripped?

I was invited to go to STRIP: Ministry of Waxing for an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) underarm treatment few weeks ago at Solaris Dutamas. You guys might be wondering: I often go there for waxing and never heard of IPL, what is that?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses specially filtered beam of pulse light to disintegrate unwanted hair from root, it is an advanced semi-permanent hair reduction method. This technique delays the growth of new hair and furthermore, a percentage of hair may not re-grow. IPL can be done on almost any area of the body, such as the legs, Brazilian area, back, underarms, arms and upper lip.

Every STRIP outlet has their own theme, Solaris Dutamas outlet theme is inspired with music studio. The interior design of this outlet is cheerful and inviting, making me sure that there's nothing to worry about!

The treatment room is warm and cozy. By the way, this is actually my FIRST time for removing hair treatment at STRIP (I normally go DIY - honey and sugar!). It was kinda awkward for me to step into the room and stripped nakedly. However, the therapist told me to relax and enjoy the treatment.
Breathe, it says
Although it was awkward at first, my therapist relaxed my mind by asking random questions, such as 'How are you?...You're studying...Owhh... ' Before the IPL treatment, the therapist would shave my underarm hair. Next, she would apply chilled roller on my skin before zapping it, making sure that I would have the best experience. IPL does not hurt, it gave me a tingling sensation and I was grinning throughout the session wutlol. Anyway, I didn't know that the session took 5 to 10 minutes, I expected it would take roughly 30 minutes. I would say it was fast and effective.

It's been few weeks now after the treatment and I dare to say that IPL is really effective. Not only my hair is starting to fall, it is obvious that my underarm pigmentation is reduced! I am really satisfied with the result. I am thinking of doing IPL session in the future (when I work lol). Imagine with just 6 sessions, I would have a hair free situation of about two years or more! 

And guess what, if you are still skeptical about the whole IPL treatment, STRIP has an exclusive offer for a first trial of IPL treament:
