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.
EstheClinic – Painless IPL
No pain IPL: Best for brunettes and dark hair Painless IPL? Is that even possible? Well, thanks to French beauty house EstheClinic and their award-winning No Pain System Technology, painless hair removal is no possible.
Unlike traditional IPL hair-removal services, here the hand piece is swept across the skin to gradually raise the temperature of the dermis and destroy follicles without damaging surrounding tissue or causing trauma to parts of skin that have more melanin. It can be done on any part of the skin, including more sensitive areas like the bikini, and is also safe for dark or tanned skin.
The coolest part? It works twice as fast as traditional IPL technology and there’s no downtime involved – you can go straight from the treatment room to tea with the ladies immediately after. Expect to see results two weeks after the first session.

Trimmings Salon & Spa – VPL and Waxing
Variable Pulsed Light (VPL) and waxing: Suitable for all hair types It’s touted as a new and improved IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). Why? Because Variable Pulsed Light, or VPL, is exactly what it sounds like…variable! This means that the energy density, pulse lengths and intervals can be customised according to individual skin, allowing for a safer and less painful treatment.
Trimmings uses the Energist UltraPlus, which doesn’t just remove hair but also rejuvenates skin, improves pigmentation and treats acne, even on the face. Darker skins and lighter hair types, however, need a higher number of treatments for it to be effective.
For those with sensitive skin, Trimmings also offers a comprehensive waxing menu, using their gentle in-house formula made of beeswax, lanolin and lavender. Popular areas include the Brazilian ($68), underarms ($22), and full legs ($65). Look forward to a quick and relaxing waxing experience in one of their Balinese style treatment rooms.
Chez Moi de Beaute – Sharplight IPL-DPC
Combining intense pulsed light (IPL) with dynamic pulse control (DPC), this advanced hair-reduction technology allows for a safe, precise and pain-free treatment that works for different hair and skin types – even those with lighter hair colours and darker skin tones. It’s available at Chez Moi de Beaute, a family-run, boutique beauty salon conveniently located in Far East Plaza.
Here’s how it works: the device emits a light beam that’s 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, hair growth slows down and reduces with time.
The non-invasive treatment involves using a contact cooling device head that soothes the skin and ensures a comfortable session without the need for any IPL gel or numbing cream. During the treatment, you may feel a slight, momentary stinging sensation. At the end of the treatment, a soothing gel is applied over the area and you’ll be told of the appropriate after-care plan.
As each session is only able to target the 20 to 25 percent of hair follicles that are in the active growth phase, a series of six to eight sessions, four to eight weeks apart, are needed for maximum results.
The Aesthetic Studio – Broadband Light (BBL)
Try BBL hair removal, which uses photo-epilation, at The Aesthetic Studio. While it’s still a light source, this system works differently than conventional laser systems, using a broad spectrum of light with wavelengths ranging from 590 to 1200nm. Light energy is absorbed into the targeted hair follicles without affecting the surrounding skin tissue. The wavelengths emit light energy in carefully timed pulses to maximise the effectiveness of the treatment. At the same time, pain is minimised and the risk of skin damage reduced.

Other types of hair removal – dpl,vpl, waxing and sugaring in Singapore
Laser and Dynamic Pulsed Light (DPL)
If you’re looking for a long-term hair removal solution, Blush offers permanent hair reduction services in the form of laser and DPL. An upgraded version of IPL, DPL uses broad-spectrum, visible light to reduce hair permanently. A percentage of heat energy from the device is absorbed by the hair follicles, effectively destroying them. However, thicker and deeper hair follicles might not be reached and disabled effectively as the light is shone over a generic area. This is where laser comes in. In addition to its ability to focus on specific areas, the laser beam can travel deeper into the pores, thus treating the hair follicles that are residing deep in the skin. A combination of laser and DPL can help achieve a more accurate and permanent result of hair growth reduction.
Electrolysis is the only hair removal method recognised as ‘permanent’ by the FDA. It’s safe for most parts of body and face, and treats hair of all colours and types, as well as skin tones. The treatment is offered at Renique Boutique, which is headed by Renuka who has over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry. Renique uses an innovative technology that’s powerful and faster than any epilator.
Sugaring, a waxing alternative, is an epilation method using a 100 percent water-soluble sugar paste. Made from white sugar, water and lemon juice, the paste is completely safe for all skin – even sensitive skin. Sugaring is offered at Sugar(ed), which has four outlets islandwide.
Try it at Supersmooth, offering quick and fuss-free laser hair removal that’s backed with a three-year warranty programme. New-generation laser diodes operate at a wavelength that skips your skin and goes straight for your hair roots, making it safe even for those with darker, richer skin tones. The hair root is damaged and your body purges it as waste material within two weeks.
Hard wax is used for the sensitive and delicate Brazilian area, which helps to reduce the pain. Soft wax is also used to remove stubborn hair. Following this is an application of the salon’s in-house blend: an antiseptic and moisturising lotion for post-wax care. The best part? The whole session takes about 10 minutes!
Variable Pulsed Light (VPL)
Beauty salon SenseDeBelle uses the FDA-approved Energist Variable Pulsed Light (VPL) to remove unwanted hair safely and easily, with none of the discomfort or pain commonly associated with invasive aesthetic treatments. Clinically proven to remove hair effectively, VPL treatments leave your skin looking smooth, silky and fuzz-free. The Energist VPL machine can also be used in facials to treat skin concerns like acne, pigmentation and vascular veins.
