I am back with something exciting to share! Recently, I went for IPL sessions at Japan IPL Express and am pleased to say it was a very pleasant experience. I have once went for armpit IPL but as it was one session I hardly saw any effect at all.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS IPL?
Intense pulsed light, commonly abbreviated as IPL, is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic uses including but not limited to hair removal. IPL can permanently reduce hair growth, most effectively in darker, coarser hair.

SPECIFIC AREA TO PLACE YOUR SHOES
HYGIENIC WET WIPES PROVIDED
What I love most about the place was 1. No appointment is required. 2. No packages and 3. Convenience (it is located in Somerset MRT itself)! If you aren’t convinced, you can go down for a free trial (1 session of 20 shots)! Register for your free trial here.
The next thing that amazes me is how clean the place actually is. Japan IPL Express makes sure that the entire place is kept clean. In each room, there is a specific area for you to keep your shoes and hang your clothes. Everything is kept in plain view. Also, during the session you will be given a pair of googles to protect your eyes. Japan IPL Express also gives wet wipes for me to clean my private area.
AREAS I CHOSE TO DO
I chose to do the Brazilian and Armpit this time because I have always wanted fairer and hair-free armpits and also a cleaner private area. As this was my first time doing the Brazilian, I was feeling quite shy initially but thank goodness for sweet Rachel (my therapist), I felt a lot less awkward. As you can see my brazilian area is full of stubborn stubbles. For the armpit area, it is quite sparse with thick and coarse hair. Do look out for my results after 6 months! I will be keeping my blog updated whenever I go for a session.
1. Rachel, the therapist first cleaned the areas with wet wipes and sanitiser.
2. After cleaning the areas, Rachel then went ahead to shave the areas completely with an electronic shaver.
3. Once the areas are thoroughly shaved, Rachel then proceeded to use the machine on the areas. It wasn’t painful throughout the procedure but slightly uncomfortable instead. I felt nothing on the armpit areas but it was slightly stingy when Rachel was going over the Brazilian area.
TYPICAL NUMBER OF SHOTS THE BODY PARTS REQUIRE

For now, Japan IPL Express has so kindly given 2 VERY exciting promos! Check out their May and Student promo below:
In addition, Japan IPL Express has an ongoing promotion where all customers that make a bulk purchase of 200 shots and above (in single transaction) receive 50% off.
- Purchases of 200 shots or more, customer will get 50% off
- 300 – 499 shots: customers will get 50% off AND 50 free shots
- 500 – 799 shots: customers will get 50% off AND 100 free shots
- 800 shots and above: customers will get 50% off AND 200 free shots
Customer A wants to buy 600 shots. As per the promotion mechanics above, she is entitled to 100 free shots on top of her purchase.
Usual Price: 700 (because 600 shots + 100 shots free) x $1.98 = $1,188
Promo Price: 600 x $1.98 x 50% = $594
Basically, the customer can get 700 shots at $594 instead of $1,188.
The calculation can seem confusing, but once you get it its pretty straight forward.
All students aged 18 and above will receive each shot at $0.99 (50% off) with every purchase of 100 shots and above, with the presentation of a valid student ID.
Hope this helps in your decision and thank you for reading!
