IPL Salons Singapore

Constant waxing or shaving your hair can cause skin discolouration and irritation. In a bid to achieve smooth and hairless underarms, many women are looking to IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and SHR (Super Hair Removal) for a more permanent hair removal solution.

IPL emits wavelengths between 500 to 1,200 nanometres into the skin, targeting pigment in the hair. When the intense light turns into heat, it kills growing cells, prevents new hairs from forming and removes existing hair. SHR uses gentler pulses of energy at a higher frequency, resulting in less damage to the skin.

For those new to IPL hair removal, it’s necessary to shave the area which is to be treated at least one day before your scheduled appointment. You should also moisturise your skin before the session to hydrate the area.

We’ve curated a list of salons offering IPL and SHR services that are well-reviewed and accessible, located in both the heartlands and the CBD, so you can easily pop by for an hair removal session after work.

1. Wellaholic

SHR hair removal

While Wellaholic’s hair removal service is called SHR (Super Hair Removal), it does the same—if not better— job of removing unwanted hair as IPL hair removal. The SHR laser offers targeted wavelengths, and they work especially well on those with darker skin.

Wellaholic’s SHR Underarms Unlimited is one of the cheapest hair removal packages out there, so grab it before it’s gone. If you’re looking to remove the fuzz on other areas, there’s also an all-inclusive hair removal package called Wellasmooth, which offers unlimited SHR treatments and unlimited shaving services on any part of your body, followed by a hydration or whitening treatment and the AfterGlow red-light treatment to repair the skin.

Price: $8.25 per month for 12 months of Underarms Unlimited, see full list of prices

While each treatment usually lasts 15 to 30 minutes, the first visit will take an hour because there will be a skin consultation with the Musee Platinum Tokyo staff.

For those with sensitive skin, this consultation is the best time to ask if you’re suitable for the IPL treatment.
