When I was at a young age and facing puberty, I was taught to pluck and shave my underarms. Little did I know it was a wrong move and I was left to face the consequences when I’m much older.
It is a little sad at times when you have to avoid wearing those nice sleeveless dresses so as to hide those ugly pits. And when you do wear sleeveless due to the hot weather in Singapore, you have to be careful not to raise your arms. I tend to get self conscious when wearing sleeveless simply because of my unsightly pits.
Hair is one issue, but the pits are of a darker tone and does not look good at all. I get ingrown hair from shaving, open pores from plucking. Basically, it’s really bad and here’s a photo to show you how bad it is.
This was taken 2 days after shaving which is why the hair are not obvious but you still can see the dark and thick growth. The skin is darker by at least 3 tones as compared to the rest of my skin. This is just bad.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is the norm these days and it’s not difficult to get it treated. Yet, I’m skeptical about the usual hair removal salons as I read that I can only go for a session every 4-6 weeks. For my case, I need to get those unsightly pits treated as soon as possible.
I’m lucky and blessed to meet Valerie from Nouri. She took one look at my pits, told me straight away that it’s very bad and asked me to stop all shaving and plucking. She said that she will treat my underarms for me and assured me that I’ll have effective results.
Valerie recommended me to do the IPL on my underarms once a week and the sessions can be spaced out when my underarms get better.
The IPL treatments are fast and fuss free. Each session takes about 15-20 minutes and you’re done! The treatments includes cleansing, application of gel, IPL shots, cleansing again and application of the Anti Inflammatory Gel which will soothes the skin after IPL treatments. As for the pain factor, it is very minimal and during the treatment, Valerie will make sure you feel comfortable and at ease.
Here’s a photo of my underarms after 4 sessions of IPL. The skin tone is lighten by a lot and hair growth is very minimal now. I’m very confident that with a few more sessions, it will look better than it is now. And like Valerie mentioned, I have seen effective results from the treatments.
Here’s a before and after photo of my underarms. The photos are taken in different lighting with my phone which is why one is brighter. I must say that I’m very happy with the results so far and I can wear my sleeveless clothes with more confidence now!
Currently Nouri is running an awesome! 10 sessions of IPL for only $299! For less then $30 per session, this is definitely worth it! And if you must know, the usual price for each Underarms IPL session is $120. Valerie will let you know how many sessions you need to see results as each individual have different conditions and hair growth.
