The team at Wax Factor say their mission is to provide superior hair removal services to clients in Singapore by using only premium-grade waxes to ensure a flawless customer experience, while keeping prices competitive at the same time.
Services include hair removal using wax or Dynamic Pulse Light (DPL) therapy, spray tans, facials, vajacials and nail care. The experienced specialists use waxes and products from Europe and Australia, and they prioritise cleanliness and hygiene by practicing no doubledipping and ensuring all areas are properly sanitised.
DPL hair removal is a painless alternative for removing hair, killing the hair follicle from the root – that means it doesn’t damage the surrounding tissue. It’s a semipermanent hair reduction, perfect for even the most sensitive areas of your body. And it can eliminate up to 80 percent of all unwanted hairs in as little as six sessions.
Cutis Medical Laser Clinics
If you’re keen for silky-smooth skin, laser hair reduction is a good option. Cutis is the Gold Winner for Best Hair Removal in the Expat Living Readers’ Choice Awards 2023, and it uses a 1064 Neodymiumdoped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (Nd: YAG) laser. This is ideally suited for tanned and dark skin as it bypasses the melanin in the skin and targets the blood supply at the base of the follicle to stop hair regrowth. The treatment is super adaptable as it handles large, small and sensitive areas with ease.
The clinic also offers Super Hair Removal (SHR), which is faster and gentler than conventional Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments. It delivers 50 percent of the energy to the pigment and 50 percent to the stem cells responsible for future hair growth. Suited to both coarse and fine hair, it’s also safe and effective for Asian skin.
Another option at Cutis is a laser system that uses a specially tailored light source. It mostly emits infrared light above 770nm, which is recognised as the most versatile wavelength for hair removal. It can rapidly treat large and small areas and a range of skin types. Fewer treatments are also needed for permanent hair reduction. If you’re keen to tackle unwanted hair with more permanent and lasting solutions, book a consultation.
Trimmings Salon & Spa
Want to go for IPL but have sensitive skin? Trimmings has an alternative to offer. VPL, which stands for Variable Pulsed Light, is a system that uses shorter bursts of light to remove the fuzz on your body in a way that’s less aggressive, and thus less prone to agitate your skin.
To tackle hair removal in the bikini area, Trimmings ensures the VPL treatment is executed by certified aestheticians who prioritise your comfort above all. The best part about getting a treatment there is that you can transform one session into a full spa day, given how the salon offers services for all your needs, from head to toe.
Prices start from $300 for VP; give them a call to find out more.
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.
Looking for a permanent hair removal solution that’s suitable for every skin tone, hair type and body area? Recognised by the US FDA as the only 100 percent permanent hair removal method, electrolysis provides lasting results without any worry of maintenance or risk. Another benefit is that it’s also effective on white, blonde and red hair.
HairFreeSG is Singapore’s leading electrolysis permanent hair removal studio; it was started by a friendly Canadian expat who was frustrated with her facial and body hair and wanted to help and empower others feeling the same way.
The salon uses industry-leading technology and machinery manufactured in Canada and has a team of skilled electrologists specialised in hair removal needs, including facial hair removal, eyebrow shaping, PCOS-related hirsutism, gender confirmation pre-surgery (SRS), and postlaser/IPL hair clean-ups.
