Looking for the best hair removal treatment for you? Whether you’re an unhappy shaver or just want a solution that lasts longer, these are some options for being fuzz-free. Here’s a list for where to get light and laser hair removal, treatments like IPL and electrolysis to traditional methods like waxing and sugaring in Singapore.
Looking for a sure-fire way to permanently reduce unwanted hair safely? Bon Aesthetics, a leader in hair removal, uses an advanced Super Hair Removal (SHR) treatment that delivers low-fluence repetitive light pulses onto hair follicles, destroying them in the process. It’s said to be three times safer and more effective than traditional IPL treatments. And all it takes is two minutes for treating small areas such as the upper lips and underarms – and with no downtime!
There’s another plus point, too: the fuss-free SHR treatment requires no sticky gel application and involves a contact cooling mechanism to protect and cool the surrounding skin. It’s suitable for all skin tones and even gets rid of pesky in-grown hairs. The multi-purpose machine also helps with skin rejuvenation and can alleviate facial concerns such as acne and pigmentation. Ladies can enjoy a first-time trial for $14 for upper lips/underarms or $48 for lower legs/Brazilian, while men can pay just $24 for chin/underarms or $58 for lower legs/jawline. This offer is available at any of the four stores, which are conveniently located next to the MRT stations listed below.

Sense De Belle
Tired of the hassle of shaving? With Sense De Belle’s VPL (Variable Pulsed Light) treatments, removing unwanted hair doesn’t need to be a time-consuming procedure. The innovative Energist VPL machine is a workstation that employs world-renowned VPL technology from Energist Medical Group, removing unwanted hair quickly while leaving your skin with a smooth and radiant finish.
The Energist VPL treatment uses short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair in mere minutes. How does it work so fast? Pulses of red light are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process heats up the hair, damaging the follicle along with its ability to regenerate.
First-timers can enjoy an exclusive trial for VPL underarm hair removal with whitening therapy for just $88.

Chez Moi De Beaute
Opting for permanent hair removal but afraid of the pain? Sharplight’s advanced IPL-DPC (Dynamic Pulse Control) at Chez Moi De Beaute allows for a pain-free, gentler and more efficient treatment compared to traditional IPL and waxing. The hair reduction procedure works by emitting a light beam that is absorbed by the hair into the hair follicle. This light energy turns into heat energy that coagulates the melanin in the follicle and destroys it. As a result, new hair is unable to grow from the follicle. DPC technology delivers precise, flexible and safe treatments to cater to different hair and skin types, including those with lighter hair colour or darker skin tones. The result is a non-invasive, long-term reduction of hair.
To ensure that there is little to no pain, the contact cooling treatment head helps to soothe skin in the affected area. First-timers can enjoy a discounted trial at 50 percent off the à la carte price per area.

SkinGlow – IPL Hair Removal
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It’s a type of treatment that uses strong pulses of light to stimulate or treat various issues within the skin. At SkinGlow, the medical-grade IPL machine used in treatments features the newest technology. The handpiece glides across the skin and automatically cools it, which means there is no downtime, no burning sensations, and no pain.
IPL can be done on any part of the skin, including more sensitive areas. It’s also safe for dark or tanned skin. From the first session, you can expect visible results of up to 70%; depending on the individual, you may require six to eight sessions to be completely hairless. After a course of IPL hair removal, the hair follicles will die and never grow back, leaving your skin smooth and hairless.
