My underarms have feelings too.Regina IPL hair removal treatment.

Whoever decided that women should shave their underams must have an underarm as smooth as the face.

Today I had my first IPL underarm hair removal treatment and I’m very happy that I went to Regina at Suntec City, Singapore.
I’ve been meaning to get an underarm laser hair removal treatment and finally I got the time and the courage to give it a go. Due to  positive reviews, I decided to book my underarms a date with Regina. Regina is the solution to every “it’s-hard-being-a-woman” dramas,  specializing in hair removal to almost every part of a woman’s body. I was extremely excited to have my first laser treatment and Regina have met my expectations, from customer service, place hygiene, specialist, treatment proper, reasonable charges to patient care. I especially like the way the specialist explained the process of getting IPL-ed, plus they’re not pushy for sales at all.

They do check important aspects of your lifestyle and health history before  deciding whether or not you’re fit enough to undergo treatment. I appreciate this process.

I was attended by Michelle. She was very nice, polite and honest. It was very comfortable talking to her about hairy topics.

After the consultation, I was given a few minutes to think through things and this time I felt sad for the poor little hairs I plan to destroy for the rest of my life. To sign or not to sign:

And I did sign, but of course! Fast forward to where I bid my hairs ba-bye ~ the treatment room. Whatever happens inside this room stays in this room. Michelle was also my therapist, explaining to me every application to keep me relaxed. I was asked to change my upper garment and wear what looked like a pair of goggles.

How did it feel? A lot of rubber band snapping and heat sensations! The whole  pinching feeling was tolerable and it only lasted 5 to 7 minutes.



After the first treatment, Michelle advised me not to shave, pluck or epilate. The hair will still grow but will ‘fall off’ on its own. I will need to have 4 to 6 sessions before my superunderarms become totally bald.

Overall, my Regina IPL hair removal experience was perfect. I highly recommend Regina to all ladies out there who are considering breaking up with their unwanted underarm hairs.

What’s the best thing about being a woman? At least one woman always survives in horror flicks.

UPDATE A: 2nd IPL (once every 2 months) ~ 2 weeks after my 1st IPL, the new hairs were growing very slowly. I had to wait for almost 10 days before I can actually shave them off. To my surprise, I didn’t have to shave cos the whole “the hair will fall off on its own” thing is true! 🙂 I just used a towel to wipe the hairs ba-bye. Today I’m having my 2nd IPL and let’s see what happens after a week. I’m guessing my UA is mad at me now 😀

UPDATE B: I had my 3rd IPL session last week and after just 6 days results have been amazing, time to throw an underarm partey! There are still fine hairs growing  but for this week I only need to shave once to maintain my hair-free underarms. I still have 2 to 3 sessions to complete, so let’s see, hopefully I only have to shave once every two weeks.

UPDATE C: 3 weeks after my 3rd IPL ~ Wow. I can’t believe I didn’t bother shaving my UArms this week, and last week. Fine hairs are becoming very fine hairs…skin is smoothER…do I still need to undergo a 4th session? 😛

UPDATE D: 4th IPL ~ I have decided to undergo and complete another round of rubber band snapping experience, my 4th IPL session. Prior to the treatment, I already shaved the tiny baby hairs I mentioned last time. At this point, I am already satisfied with the appearance of my UA but I was advised to complete at least 8 sessions to finally graduate from this whole laser experience. Yes, I still shave but not more than twice a month.

UPDATE E: 5th IPL ~ this is it! After my 5th IPL session, hair didn’t grow for a good 2 months. After that, only gentle shaving is needed but I do it only once every 2 weeks. IPL works! OMG

      Hi Liz, chicken skin is a common problem especially if you’re used to plucking the UA hairs. This can be cured by IPL. Regarding the saggy part, they will advise you on the best procedure to address that…I don’t think IPL alone can solve that…in my personal experience though, anything saggy like the arm fats, can be toned by daily arm exercises….I follow the Victoria Secret exercises on YouTube…and it works!
