Sometimes some shoot requires us to have fair skin or flawless limbs because no one wants to look ugly or flawed in photos.
I have an issue with hairs, especially underarm and uneven skin tone on the legs.
I used to shave/pluck or visit beauty parlours for underarm waxing but I realized that overtime, they only darken the armpit and I knew this can’t be the solution to it. Darken armpits also reduces my confidence of wearing sleeves clothes.
When I visited Dr. Tan at Halley Medical Aesthetics for my smile line fillers, I had the opportunity to chit chat with one of the therapists while waiting for my turn. As she is quite experienced in IPL and all, I asked her for a solution to leg and underarm whitening as well as hair removal.
Few years ago, I went to this particular parlour in town for an underarm waxing but the beautician bruised one of the underarms and the bruise only went away after half a year. I had to avoid all sleeveless clothing then. It was demoralizing so I told myself to NEVER TRUST any beautician unless they are from a clinic.
It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted to do the whitening and hair removal at Halley Medical Aesthetics. I went back 3 weeks later after the smile line fillers.
My initial plan was to do hair removal and whitening for both underarms and legs but the therapist told me to save my money; theres no need for hair removal for the legs because I only had a few few few few few few strands of hair. You can count them with one hand. LOL.
Because of my low pain tolerance, she offered to apply some numbing cream on the more sensitive areas like the underarms.
Halley Medical Aesthetics’s DPL Smooth Hair Removal treatment for the underarm has two functions: hair removal and slight whitening effect only cost $90.
FYI, DPL stands for Dynamic Pulsed Light which is also the same technology used to rejuvenate the skin during treatments. You can also do DPL on the face in smoothening the skin and reducing pores. Reducing pores sound attractive!!
DPL is a fuss free procedure. Underarms took me 5-7 minutes while the legs took me another 10 minutes.
THERE WAS NO PAIN AT ALL!!
I could still chat and laugh with the therapist when she was focusing on the legs. It was just warm and fuzzy. After I was done with the legs, I realized that they were 2 shades fairer. Yup yup, the results were that instant!!!! So I went back and did arms whitening as well.
Zap zap zappppppp…
I had dry skin on the legs but they are much better already.
I thought I was shooting for Marvel, it was rays of light everywhere. But you can feel nothing except a slight tingling sensation when the probe touches the skin.
Total time taken for both procedures: Less than 20 minutes.
I can go out immediately after the treatments without any downtime!! This is a bonus especially when it comes to face.
I was recommended to go back once every one to two months for maintenance. I can already see a lag growth of hair on the underarm areas. I used to shave every 2 days but now I only have to shave once every 5 days. Save me time every morning!
Remember, if you spend your money at the right places, you only have to spend it once every few months until it dies off. So it is worth the investment!
Confidence can be boosted with money. That is what I believe in now! 🙂
Yay when wearing slightly revealing clothes (I am quite conservative so you will not see me in too revealing clothes). And yay to higher confidence!
Below are some photos that were taken for a shoot.
Clothes were all c/o Love Bonito. My legs used to be even darker and the skin tone was uneven due to prolonged outdoor fishing. But I am quite happy with the end results now.
Thank you for the good services from Halley Medical Aesthetics and Love Bonito for the outfits!
