But these are only temporary measures and have side effects like cuts, chicken dots, ingrown hairs, coarse hair and dark patches.
So, as mentioned in my previous post, I attended the Body Perfect Workshop and was introduced to their patented technology which is the Photothermolysis Hair Removal Therapy! I went back for a complimentary treatment at the Sunway Pyramid branch.
The treatment was for the underarm hair removal. I was first given a ginger tea upon my arrival and waited for the beauty manager to attend to me. The staffs were as usual, all smiley, friendly and I think they make it a point to know all of their customer's name. I was greeted with my first name =) aaand, they actually read what I write *gasp*
I was attended by the same beauty manager who explained to me about this treatment at the workshop, Ms Carmen. She remembers me! So, I was brought into the consultation room and took pictures of my underarm for the before and after effect. Since I already knew about this treatment, she didn't elaborate further and just explained what I would experience later.
Body Perfect's promise to customers.
Since it is their private and confidential policy, I'm not posting any pictures of the overall process. I was introduced to my beautician, Ms. Yuen Theng and she walked me into a cozy treatment room.
Okay, just one pic before it starts =))
So, she counted......One...........Two..........Three........................
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! LOLZ....no no, just kidding ^^
You will only feel like there's a small electric shock feeling. That's the first feeling and then subsequently, you will just feel a tiny bit of pain but only for a nano second. But, point is, you can feel it and that's why the beautician counts to three.
So it got me thinking, since this photothermolysis was supposed to cause much much less pain than IPL, I cannot imagine people going through IPL for legs and hands which have a wider area and going through 10 sessions of painful treatments -.- Seriously if you know anyone who goes through that much of pain for beauty, please salute them thank you!
Anyway, coming back, after the heat and light rays are done doing their thing, the beautician takes off the cooling gel, puts a cooling pad to soothe your skin and then apply herbal cream to make your skin moisturised and smooth.
That is only the first session. So, it's true that when they said after the first session, you will see immediate results because I did! It will normally take around 10 sessions for hair to be completely removed. I did not have any side effects, no redness, no pain, no discomfort, nothing! I was really satisfied =)
After treatment, I can put my hands up without worrying =))
Normally, for me, after shaving, it'll take 1-2 days to shave again. After this treatment, it took me about 3-4 days to start shaving again. Hence, hair was at a slower growth rate. But of course, for full results, you'll need to continue with this treatment.
So, if you want hairless underams or hairless anywhere, visit http://www.bodyperfect.com.my/ or call them and I'm sure they would be glad to help you!
Thank you Body Perfect!
